I don’t know about you, but when it’s hot outside I often crave simple and healthy instead of heavy dishes that make you feel full for the rest of the day (which is a good thing because summer is also bikini time!). One of my favourite recipes is not only really tasty but also fast to make so that you can spend as little time in the kitchen as possible. You can also make this, if you are having guests over since it’s so delicious and almost everybody likes pasta and mozzarella. By the way, an arugula salad would be the perfect side dish, don’t you think?
Did you know that Gwyneth Paltrow has published a cookbook a while ago? Apparently her father had been a dedicated (hobby) cook and her book My Father’s Daughter contains lots of really, really delicious recipes, that he (or her mother) used to make. According to the book Bruce’s pancakes were so popular that people would come over on Saturday mornings on a regular basis to eat them. I don’t eat pancakes very often (no time in the morning), but I tried these yesterday and it’s true, they are delicious! I could’ve probably eaten the whole batch if my tummy hadn’t said no after a few.
If you want to try them as well you can find the recipe here. Or you just buy the book, I can really recommend it if you are looking for healthy and delicious recipes.
PS: The recipe says to use a teaspoon of salt, but I guess next time I would probably use less, otherwise they are a little bit salty. A pinch should be about right. Enjoy!
A little while ago, I got this great waffle iron that makes heart-shaped waffles on a stick. Awesome, right? Somehow, I hardly ever use it, but everytime I do, the waffles go like hot cakes (which they somehow are, a little bit) because everybody in my family loves them. Since they probably don’t only love them because of the heart-shape, here’s the delicious recipe.
Ingredients: 125 g margarine (or butter), 100 g sugar, 1 pck vanilla sugar, 2-3 eggs, 250 g flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 175-200 ml milk.
First cream the butter or margarine (I used margarine, but I guess both is possible). Then add the sugar, vanilla sugar and the eggs and mix everything. After that, combine flour and baking powder and stir everything again. Lastly, add the milk bit by bit.
Heat your waffle iron and cook your waffles according to your waffle iron directions.
A few weeks ago, I made pumpkin soup. To be honest, I have never tasted (let alone cooked) pumpkin soup before so it would be quite silly to call this the best pumpkin soup I have ever eaten. Nevertheless, it was good. It was really good. I made up the recipe from scratch (it is a little bit similar to the courgette soup I shared a few month ago) and gladly everything worked out. Want to try it for yourself?
Hey friends! I guest-blogged over on Little Luck Tree the other day and shared a really tasty recipe for hot punch. It not only warms you from within, but it also makes your house smell wonderful. So if you’d like too, you can check it out here. Cheers!
