Breakfast for the whole family in 5 minutes Breakfast for the whole family in 5 minutes

I make fruit salad every morning. Usually, a bowl full of fruit makes my little ones’ bellies full and they don’t need anything else besides drinking a glass of coconut/almond milk (water is good too!) next to it. We used to eat bread, cheese, yogurt, deli meat… I have always restricted boxed cereals, a.k.a. breakfast […]

Good morning shake Good morning shake

Back in April I sat here and whined to you about not being allowed to drink coffee on the Detox diet. It took me about 3 weeks to get off the physical addiction to coffee, but it took longer than that to stop thinking about coffee day and night and craving it so badly. Of […]

Now what? Now what?

I’ve been trying to do some detective work to find out what’s causing my health “issues”. I might have sensitivity to eggs. I will have to re-check that again sometimes in the future. It could also be wheat, or dairy, or… It could also be something that is not food. It could be a side effect […]

Fresh Fresh

Thinking about my recent trip to Israel, I realize that fresh and good food was so easy to find there, and at relatively inexpensive prices. The restaurant at the beach, the little falafel shop, the pastries at the grocery store at 10 PM, the street corner Shawarma place…  It was all good, fresh, and cheap. […]

Pancakes, the one and only recipe Pancakes, the one and only recipe

If you live in the US, I’m sure you’ve made pancakes before. Probably numerous times—am I right or am I right? But, the question is, have you been faithful to only one recipe? Or are you jumping from one recipe to the next? As for me, I’ve been using the same recipe since 1996. Back […]

Mushroom quiche recipe Mushroom quiche recipe

OK, so we had a few distractions between the No-roll quiche crust post – because we visited Mount Rainier National Park, Blueberry Hills farm, and Lake Chelan – to the actual finished product, that is the mushroom quiche post. I’ll be honest with you… For me, making – and eating! – a mushroom quiche is […]

Farina porridge mess Farina porridge

I’m not quite sure really what it is… I think it qualifies as porridge but some might say it’s a pudding, or even a crema. Definitions asides, this was one of the few memorable breakfasts of my childhood. Sweet, thick, milky farina porridge. I remember loving it, asking for it, sometimes even begging my mother […]

Inspiration: Mireille Guiliano, “French Women Don’t Get Fat” author Mireille's magical Breakfast Cream

Sometimes I get stuck. Plain stuck in a rut. When everything seems to be the same old routine, dull and boring. When nothing much is happening. I’m sure it happens to everyone, right?! Does it ever happen to you? When it happens to me, I find my posts are dreary, my photos are terrible, the […]

Sweet Blintzes Sweet Blintzes

Blintzes… I’ve been making them since high school. That’s… never mind how many years ago. I’ll be 40 in a few months! I hear the preparations for the celebrations are underway. (No pressure, Suburban cowboy.) Back in high school, I used to make a batch of these crepe-like yummies and take them with me to […]

Aebleskiver, ebelskiver Ebelskiver

I really got into the mood of pancake making, and of course eating, after my Poffertjes travel back in time experience. So, naturally, I was extremely happy when Simone has suggested we make more pancakes together, this time Danish ones called Ebelskiver, and this time Trissa from the beautiful blog Trissalicious joins too. I’m in […]

Poffertjes Poffertjes

There was hardly any time to take photos as my husband and kids came back home and got all curious about what I was making in the kitchen. Poffertjes. The first time I ate poffertjes was back in 1989. I’ll help you out, that’s 21 years ago! Gosh, I sure grew up since. But in […]
