There are a few types of Christmas cookies that you can find everywhere in Germany around Christmas – the classics. Next to simple butter cookies, you have vanilla moon cookies, and these cinnamon stars.
When I was little, my mom and I used to spend the weekends before Christmas in the kitchen, making all sorts of different cookies and gingerbread. While my mom is a passionate baker, I prefer cooking and don’t really bake a lot. But this year, I decided to make vegan Christmas cookies for the first time, and give them away to friends.
This is how I prepare my breakfast for the work week. I eat the same breakfast almost every day, because it’s easy, nutritious and sooo good! I never get tired of it.
I know it’s March and I should have posted this recipe in October, but hey – we’re back to fall weather in Amsterdam, so why not give this fall recipe a try? This recipe for vegan pumpkin soup is so basic, you can’t fail.
I was sick last week, and basically lived off of fruits, vegetables and ginger until I started feeling better. Instead of taking medicine, I gave my body rest and healthy food and that was all it needed to fight the cold.
I am at home for the holidays and am enjoying the slow mornings and late breakfasts here at my mom’s house. One of these grey and gloomy mornings, I got up and felt like having a warm and indulgent breakfast, so I gathered a few ingredients and whipped up this gooey warm and creamy porridge.
It’s been a while since I published the last recipe for energy bites/bliss balls on this blog and I figured gingerbread flavor would be appropriate right now. These bites are packed with protein and perfect for a pre- or post-workout snack, or an afternoon bite with a cup of coffee.
If you are looking for an easy vegan meal to impress meat eaters with – this is it! This vegan ragu is so flavorful and spicy that is comes strikingly close to the original. It is Italian-approved and a quick go-to meal for when friends are coming over for dinner.
If you’re still looking for a breakfast for Christmas, I have the perfect suggestion for you. These gingerbread pancakes are based on the first gingerbread pancake recipe I posted, but I topped them off with some fried cinnamon apples & pieces of gingerbread. They taste like Christmas on a plate! 🙂
I have to admit, I’m not quite ready for fall yet (granted I didn’t have a real summer), but I’m willing to see the positives and embrace the season! I can wear my nice coats again, snuggle up on the couch with a cup of tea on a rainy day, go to museums on the weekends and savour warm soups & curries!
