Creamy Broccoli Spaghetti (the underrated veg that most kids hate..)

You know, I’m tired of hearing bad things about vegetables. Especially from kids! Take broccoli. In this country, the UK, broccoli are often described negatively. I have heard kids talking about broccoli as a disgusting veg.. and sadly, in many cases parents’ examples in the matter don’t help, as I witnessed on multiple occasions. Kids’…

Blueberry Muffins

I like the practicality of a good blueberry muffin. The kind of dessert that it’s easy to put  together from scratch in less than 10 minutes, the hardest part is to wait for them to cook in the oven..;) It’s my daughter, actually, who has been asking for these for a while. I promised her…

Struffoli, Christmas honey balls

Struffoli, the official Christmas treat of my childhood. I come from the south of Italy and it is not officially Christmas until struffoli are on your plate 🙂 This traditional dessert can be made in different ways and I assume, depending on the region, presented also in different forms. A true Italian delicacy and a…

Chocolate Chunkies

What’s the time?? I woke up way too early, even for breakfast! It’s December and it’s still dark outside. Our Christmas lights are visible from my kitchen window. No other lights are on out there. Of course not! I am the only crazy woman who, out of all days, had to be up at 5…

Light Chocolate Mousse

When chocolate mousse is a 2 step, few minutes procedure it becomes dangerously inviting to my eyes.. that and the fact that this one is a super light
vegan, gluten free and dairy free..yum!

Coconut Chocolate Ice cream Bars

GF, DF, Grain Free, Paleo, Vegan I can’t take credit for this recipe. Boy, I wish I could. In its simplicity (because it’s so simple a child can make it), it is one of the tastiest quick desserts I have ever tried. I left the TV on on a Sunday morning and a food programme…

Super Gooey Pumpkin Cookies

Some people are just romantic.  My husband, for example, he sees deep meanings in most things: landscapes, seasons, animals.. ♥ I am more of a food person. My mother often says to me that is typical of my astrological sign: Taurus, practical and deeply connected to earth. And what is more connected to earth than…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough GF, DF, Paleo

Cookie dough..♥ I remember when my mother used to bake cakes. One cake in particular called crostata was our favourite. I felt happy sitting at the dining table, on the edge of the chair looking at my mother mixing this buttery dough. The scent of vanilla would quickly spread around the kitchen. Before baking the cake, she would…

Dark Chocolate & Yogurt Cake

It’s soon my husband’s birthday.. he’s turning 40! We are not the “big party” type of people. We have never been.  Maybe old style, but we still like to celebrate birthdays the three of us (well, four, with our Daisy Beagle girl) around the table, a cake, some wine and a present ♥ Me and…
