White Chocolate & Red Kuri Squash Nutella

Hello everyone! The 2017 edition of the #Choctoberfest ends today. So, to close the event in style, I chose to highlight in my last recipe created for this festival occasion, one of my very favourite treats: white chocolate. You may have already tried my Homemade Nutella recipe published last summer. Today’s variation is based on this recipe,…

This is the third annual food blogger celebration of all things chocolate, made possible thanks to our gold sponsor Imperial Sugar and the other sponsors listed below. Over 70 bloggers are participating in #Choctoberfest 2017 and will be posting…

Sweet or savory moffles

I bet the name of this recipe intrigues you. No, this is not an error or a misspelling. The word moffle is the contraction of mochi and waffle. Of course you know waffles, but mochi is perhaps unknown to some of you. Mochi is a dough made from glutinous rice. It is originally from China and…

Mandarin banana bread, gluten-free & vegan

It is the high season of mandarins. Yippee! I love them when they are ripe, juicy and sweet. However, I have the following problem with them: they are often sold in 2 kg packs or more, so I stuff myself with mandarins for a few days before I get bored. I usually end up having to choose…

Chocolate & coconut muesli, gluten-free

Since I have not published a recipe especially for breakfast for a long time, and because I will be flying to to the tropics very soon (yay!), I wanted to give myself a little taste of tropical holidays with this exotic muesli mix. If you are like and standards granola mix from the market are…

Savoury spinach pancakes

After having testing and loving the spinachand buckwheat waffles recipe from womama.fr, I wanted to adapt it to make vegan pancakes. Indeed, I love eating pancakes at breakfast, but having sugar in the morning does not do me any good, which is why I opt mostly for smoothies or salty dishes. Making savoury pancakes seemed…

Sweet green smoothie

With days getting shorter, my energy levels decrease visibly. To top it off, I suffered a serious attack of laziness, and I must honestly say that I had to put me a big kick in the butt to push myself to write this article . If like me you feel you need a little boost, I suggest…

Butternut & turmeric smoothie

Celebrate Fall and its gorgeous squashes! Among my favorite varieties, butternut squash, holds a beautiful place. It owes its name to the sublime velvety texture of its flesh. It can be eaten raw like a carrot, or cooked in a thousand ways. Its tender flesh and slightly nutty taste, is as good in savory recipes…

Chocolate chia pudding

Hello! As I have not published a sweet recipe for a while, I thought that the time had come to share with you this chocolate chia pudding recipe. It will delight gourmets and cocoa lovers :)! Like most of my recipes, I created it on lazy mood and empty fridge morning. I did not have enough…

Purple velvet: cherry & apple smoothie

As summer is coming to an end soon and I have not posted a smoothie recipe for some time, I thought it appropriate to share with you today my cherry and apple smoothie recipe. When I decide to create a new smoothie recipe, I usually always start by choosing a color I would like to drink. Deep…

Tropical sweetness: coconut chia pudding with passionfruit sauce

This tasty recipe can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert or as an afternoon snack. It is quick to prapare, however the chia pudding should be made the day before to give it time to set. This recipe is suitable for gluten and lactose intolerant people, as well as vegetarians and vegans. Chia seeds contain plenty of omega-3 and fiber….

Exotic rolls: Sri Lankan rotis

I discovered these wonderful rolls in Sri Lanka, during an ayurvedic retreat. They can be eaten as a side dish with curry, as a starter with chutney, or for breakfast with butter and honey, if you make them without salt and spices. This recipe is so simple it cannot go wrong. It will allow you to make eight nutritious…
