COOKING SEASONALLY: FALL | SWEET POTATO, EGGPLANT SALAD WITH SESAME DRESSING | vegetarian, gluten-free

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

*Product Placement*

Autumn is my favorite time of the year – golden leaves, cozy days under the blanket, a good book and the warm light of candles. Moreover, I’m always looking forward to the seasonal fruits and veggies such as pumpkin, quince, eggplant and grapes. I love to cook seasonally, probably because that’s how I was raised. Where I come from, we always cook seasonally. You just can’t get strawberries or tomatoes during winter, or rather say, you can’t afford them. You always buy fruits and veggies that are in season and I think there’s the certain something to it – you always look forward to the one month when you’ll get your favorite fruits.

Cooking seasonally and regionally is also a trend that is coming up and I think it is really great that people are getting more aware of what they are eating. That’s also why I’ve decided not only to share my favorite recipes with you, but my favorite SEASONAL recipes that are easy to prepare and quick. Today I’ll start with my favorite warm fall salad: a sweet potato, eggplant, chickpea salad with a sesame dressing. (*vegan substitutes are also included in the recipe)

ALL I WANT FOR MY B-DAY IS… TO SAY THANK YOU

Sunday, September 24, 2017

As usual, before my birthday, my husband asked me: “So, what do you want for your b-day? Any special wishes?”, and it was the first time I didn’t know what to say. I really don’t have any wishes at all, because I’ve got just everything I need and even more than that. Because of this, I just wanted to express in this blog post how grateful I am for everything.

KOREAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS | FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Sunday, September 17, 2017

You may have noticed the huge hype about the Korean skin care routine which is not something that started a short while ago, but it’s still talked off – with good reason. If you take a look at Korean women, they all have flawless complexion. But why? The reason for this is that they take their skin care very seriously, and it consists of 10 steps (quite a lot, right? :D). However, it’s not only the skin care routine that is totally hyped currently, but also their beauty products, which are, let’s say, quite different from the products we use in Europe. They often contain some ingredients, which are pretty unusual to us, like: snail slime, egg whites, egg yolks, bee venom, sheep oil etc. I read a lot about all of this and thought: I gotta try it. I just gotta try it. So I tested 3 products for a couple of months and today I’m sharing my opinion with you. Keep reading 🙂

SUSHI AS A DESSERT: SWEET STRAWBERRY-COCONUT SUSHI | vegan, gluten-free

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

*Advertisement*

If someone told me a couple of years ago that sushi would eventually become one of my favorite dishes, I would say they’re crazy :D. Even though sushi was something I didn’t like at all, it has now become something I could eat at every time of the day – in the morning, at lunch, in the evening… basically all the time :D. My favorite is definitely avocado-maki. Yumminess!!!

So, if you want to make me happy, now you know what I need :D. Another thing I like eating soooo much are sweets. Gosh… However, I’m not so into these bought sweets, but rather into home-made cakes and desserts. That’s why I also love to bake. Some time ago, a certain idea came to my mind: “Why can’t I just have my favorite dish as a dessert?” Said and done :D.

Since I wasn’t sure if this would work and I didn’t find almost any recipes online, I wanted first to try it and make sure that it is edible :D. However, it wasn’t only edible, it was TDF!!! My hubby was over the moon! And that’s why I decided to try it once again and share this amazing recipe with you guys.

Why do I like it so much? It isn’t too sweet, it’s fruity and creamy at the same time, it’s vegan and gluten-free. What more could one want? It is also perfect for parties at home and it’s definitely an eye-catcher on the table :).
