It’s still such warm weather here in Australia which for me means lots of BBQ and lighter meals. That’s why I made the Sticky Ginger Chicken Wings yesterday (we were so hungry that I just wasn’t able to make pictures, but I will be definitely making the wings soon again) and this Asian Style Coleslaw on a side. At least the salad is served cold so I could snap a couple pics before dinner.
It’s been almost a month since my last post. I can’t believe that. Time went so fast. Well but I definitely got my lesson about planning the posting schedule better the next time. It’s not that I didn’t feel like writing. If you followed my Instagram or Facebook, you would know that I travelled a bit thru Thailand the last few weeks. And as much as I thought I would be able to write and post while there, it did not happened at all.
I love curry. All the possible versions of it. Meat or vegetarian, sweet or spicy, I’m for all. But let’s be honest, it can be quite a lot of work sometimes to make a nice curry at home. Especially when using beef or lamb the cooking process can take up to few hours. And that is exactly when Crock Pot comes in handy.
This recipe shows my (paleo friendly) version of one Eastern classic – savory Sauerkraut Soup with Klobasa (Paprika Sausage). This rich soup is a fixed star in the kitchens of Middle and Eastern Europe. Yet it has many forms as every Slavic country has their own interpretation of it and almost every family carries their own unique recipe.
So, back to reality. When we returned from our amazing trip to Austria (I will totally write about it later) the real life stuff hit me pretty hard. We have just 3 weeks left before our trip to Thailand (and moving to Australia after that, you can read a bit more about it in the Big Step story) and I’m starting to freak out a little.
Looking for a recipe for some special Valentine’s treat? My Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes with Coconut Flour and Avocado Frosting have you covered! And you don’t have to have a bad conscience at all because these are totally gluten and dairy-free and using fruit and a tiny bit of maple syrup instead of sugar.
What are your plans for Valentine’s day this year? Do you celebrate this day somehow or do you think there is no need for that?
This Butternut Squash Cream Soup with Turmeric is a perfect dish for winter weather.
At least for the terrible weather afflicting our little country now. Continue reading
I think breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. OK, I know that science in the last few years proved that this dogma is not actually so correct. But I like to stick with it.
If a poor brekky doesn’t gratify my fussy morning palates I will be most likely cranky till lunch. God forbid that I wouldn’t have any breakfast for some reason. That’s just dark…
These Celeriac and Carrot Fritters are a great companion to many meals. You can definitely enjoy them as they are. Which means don’t worry about the cutlery, get your hands a bit messy and maybe even use the fritters as a scoop for your favorite dip. My Avocado Jalapeno Dip would serve just great for that.
