Grilled bell pepper salad

I’m often asked what I like to eat for lunch. Given the fact that I spend (almost) every day in the kitchen trying out new recipes, what ends up being lunch usually depends on what I’m experimenting with that day. When I’m not, I love to eat salads with a crunchy cracker or spelt toast for lunch. Delicious! This... Read more

Osawa Cake

This week, one of my close friends surprised me with something truly delicious that she baked to go with our coffee. I took a bite of this – what should I call it? – cookie, cake, bread-like snack? It was filling, scrumptious and sweet and full of nuts and dried fruit. Truly delicious and nutritious!Picture:... Read more

Creamy tomato soup

I didn’t eat much tomato soup as a kid. My parents would usually make vegetable or ox-tail soup. And when I was at university, I used to eat canned soup (haha), which is, of course, much less tasty. But now that I know how to make soup that tastes this yummy, I eat it all the time – especially when I have company!... Read more

Crunchy Crackers

Making your own crackers means you know exactly what goes into them and that you can make them so much more nutritious than the crackers or crisp bread you buy in stores. On top of all that, they are so much tastier! I often eat these delicious, crispy bread-alternatives at lunch with homemade hummus or guacamole.... Read more

Pizza

I have guilty pleasures… Sometimes I use gel polish on my nails (which isn’t very good for your nails it seems) and I can’t deny that I still enjoy dancing, half-naked, in front of the mirror to the Backstreet Boys. But to be honest, I don’t really have any weird or bad habits related to food. Because, guess... Read more
