No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

Rich and creamy no-bake chocolate cheesecake. Though I personally prefer baked cheesecake and generally I’m not a fan of using gelatin, I decided it was time to step out of my comfort zone on this one, and it was worth it! While this no-bake cheesecake firms up from gelatin, it has a light texture and the result isn’t jelly like but more of a sturdy […]

Sweet stars on pink cloudy plates… Simple is beautiful, isn’t it? Light, airy and crispy lemon flavoured star meringue cookies that melt in the mouth. They really are simple but sweet and impressive confections with little bit extra in the look if you lightly brown them on top!

Nutty Mini Tahini Cakes

Tahini – paste made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds, is a staple foodstuff here in Israel. You can find it in different dips, spreads, sauces and sweet desserts like halva and tahini cookies. We usually have tahini at home for use in homemade hummus, salad dressing and sauces. I had not actually even thought about baking with it, until we got a container of a sweeter, […]

Lemon Mint Raw Chocolate

I was recently in Finland and as I walked in the local stores in Helsinki I could not help but notice how superfoods are everywhere these days. Magazines lists benefits and feature recipes, health food section boosts beautifully packed powerfoods or superfoods and then there’s the healthy snacks! I even won a healthy raw choc brownie bar by rolling the dice in eco store Ruohonjuuri – […]

Do you have items that you buy every time you go grocery shopping even if you weren’t out them? Well, apples are something we always have in our fruit basket and I buy more without thinking what’s the current situation at home. And so sometimes we end up having way too many apples! Luckily you can do so much with them; use in smoothies, make delicious apple […]

Baked Falafel Balls

I live in Israel where falafel is wildly available and you can find options from gluten free to coated and spicy versions. Despite the variety I’m still looking for a all-good-for-you falafel and decided to take it as a mission at home. These baked falafels are gluten free and you can make them vegan by replacing the egg with vegan substitute such as soaked flax […]

Lemon Macarons

Yellow macarons with zesty lemon buttercream filling. Lemon has always been my favourite macaron flavour, yet I’ve published 35 macaron recipes prior to this?! Yup, it’s not my first time making these and sure I’ve used lemon in flavour combinations like in some of the earlier recipes; Raspberry Citrus & Lemon Licorice. The reason I have not shared this fairly plain yet absolutely delicious flavour […]
