Fudgy Chocolate Balls

I have recently posted the recipe for Cranberry Cashew Bites. I made them a couple of times now as they are great to snack on and can satisfy a sweet tooth without having additional sugars. This week I made something similar using different ingredients. I used hazelnuts and almonds as the main ingredients here and…

Baked Falafel

Chickpeas remind me of my childhood. I remember there was an old lady, who used to come by my school at the end of the day, selling fresh chickpeas when they were in season. She would have picked them up from her family’s fields that same morning. She would be standing there, a couple of…

Cranberry Cashew Bites

I have been testing out various sweet recipes recently, which obviously meant that we have had to eat all of these experiments! After having finished off these sweets, we felt it would be healthier to stay away from the sugars and fats for a while. Still, after eating so many delicious things over the previous…

German-style Soft Pretzels

I have been to Germany several times now, mostly visiting my husband’s family. In the morning, they often spoil us with warm Pretzels, a selection of cold cuts and cheeses. When on holiday, they are the best thing that you could ever want accompanied by a cup (or two!) of strong drip coffee. I was…

Double Chocolate Spiced Zucchini Muffins

For the past couple of weeks, zucchini have been quite cheap at the markets here in Budapest. Hence, we have been consuming quite a lot of them in various savoury dishes. I have seen a lot of recipes incorporating this summer vegetable in cakes, bread and muffins. At first I was hesitant to try and…

Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

I recently posted the recipe for Oat and Ginger cookies, however I understand that ginger does not appeal to everyone. I have another favourite cookie recipe, one that includes chocolate… I am sure most of you reading this like chocolate. ­čÖé It is easy to see why this cookie is another favourite of ours. It…

I have a perfect food item for your next get-together! ­čÖé These savoury cheesy zucchini muffins are easy to make and sooo delicious! They can be eaten on their own or served with a…

Savoury Cornbread

Until recently I had never tried cornbread. Of course I had heard of it before but it is not popular at home or here in Hungary. We were recently invited to a friends’ house and they offered us cornbread. It was fluffy, moist and super delicious. My husband and I really liked it.. a lot!…

Red Lentil Curry & Homemade Naan Bread

Indian-inspired curries are a staple of our diet. I make them all year round and I like to vary them according to the fresh local produce. Most of the time, these meals tend to be vegetarian dishes and very often they are also vegan. This is the simplest curry dish I have ever made and…

Mediterranean Style Stuffed Bell Peppers

This recipe here takes me back home, as the flavours remind me of ─žob┼╝ bi┼╝-┼╝ejt (translated to bread with oil). In Malta, ─žob┼╝ bi┼╝-┼╝ejt is a traditional lunchtime snack. It consists of a traditional Maltese loaf or a ftira (a round flat-ish bread similar to ciabatta) spread with kunserva (a sweet tomato paste), and topped…
