Goji berry and Chocolate Yogurt Lunch

May 21, 2016



Whereas for breakfast of lunch, or even as a snack, Greek yogurt has always been on top of preferred list.One of my favorite combinations is with Goji berries and some chocolate drops. For an extra punch, blend the goji berries for a few seconds,use a shiv to separate the big chunks from the powdery smaller pieces. Mix the powder goji with the yogurt and fill a bowl with it. Then mix the bigger chunks of goji with a tablespoon of chocolate drops and sprinkle that mix on top of your yogurt. You will get a beautiful result as seen above and the taste is well worth the extra effort!

Quick Brunch , Yogurt and Granola with Chia and Quinoa

March 14, 2016



Quick brunch today with some Greek yogurt and a new type of granola I found at Menu with Chia and Quinoa. I automatically throw the package and use an airtight container for my granola so I don’t remember the brand , but I am sure if you walk into any Menu you will find it easily over at the Cereal isle. Both Chia and Quinoa are superfoods that I am trying to incorporate more into my everyday meal planning, so adding it quickly in my breakfast of brunch bowl is great. Add some fruits in and you have a delicious snack and a great instagram photo opportunity 🙂
Last few weeks I have been working quite a lot everyday, so I have been having my lunches on the fly usually with my macbook and notebooks on the side. Sometimes I cannot decide if I should be shooting the perfect environment ( I could certainly remove anything that is not related to breakfast and shoot by the window), however this is where I had my lunch today and I thought giving a glimpse into my everyday life is something I would rather share and not hide. I know a lot of bloggers are on the fence about this but I love seeing candid shots!

Birthday Pancakes and the best recipe

March 9, 2016



Yesterday it was my birthday and as per usual every birthday morning calls for a small celebration in bed with dessert and presents. This time it was pancakes and while I wasn’t going to share these photos on the blog, the sheer amount of messages I got regarding the recipe calls for it. In fact I am very happy to share since it is really the best recipe for pancakes I have ever tried. Below you will find ingredients and instructions. 

Ingredients :

2 cups flour 

3 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

2 eggs

2 cups of milk (if the batter seems too thick add 3 or 4 more tablespoons)

3 tablespoons melted butter, plus butter for cooking

Instructions :

Add all ingredients above in a bowl at the same time, order is inconsequential. Use a whisk (I prefer doing this by hand) and mix until a smooth batter is formed. Cook as per usual. Since this is not a cooking blog I will not attempt to tell anyone how to cook pancakes. I just leave them until bubbles start to form then flip them once and then remove them. No need to leave the batter in the fridge before starting to cook either. Just start right after whisking is done. The pancakes always end up delectable, fluffy and amazing looking. As for today, I just had the leftovers from yesterday (I even left them out of the fridge) with some lemon curd. Delicious!

Pancakes served in my new Anne Black Plates (and a trick to make them fluffier)

May 10, 2015


// Sponsored content in collaboration with Anne Black.. I was provided with the ceramics as shown below for a review. All opinions are my own.

This weekend I decided to make some pancake batter which ended up with providing enough pancakes for two days. I just had to use my new plates by Anne Black that just arrived in my mail, I found that pancakes complimented them perfectly, or is it maybe the other way around?Saturday morning we had them plain with some sugar and fruits on top while today we had them with nutella, bananas and vanilla sauce. Clearly Sundays version was more of a dessert but that’s the beauty of pancakes, you can eat them in so many different ways! There are so many pancakes recipes out there, the one I am using provides with fluffy pancakes although I found out a small trick to make them extra fluffy. While a lot of recipes call for folding egg whites or putting extra baking powder in the batter what I discovered has to do with baking them.

The Trick :

While most recipes will call for baking the pancakes in melted butter, simply cook your pancakes without using any butter in a non stick pan. The pancakes will rise at least double the size they would normally and their texture will be much more cakey when you eat them. Go on, try it 🙂 The only downside is they will not get that crispy golden edge as seen above and of course the extra buttery taste. I don’t view this as a downside, I love my pancakes both ways!

Ingredients :

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten

3 tablespoons melted butter

Preparation:

Mix all dry ingredients together. In a different bowl slightly beat the egg then add the milk and the butter.Keep whisking if the butter is hot so your egg will not cook. Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk until everything is blend well together but do not overmix, the batter is supposed to be slightly lumpy. Cook in a non stick pan over medium heat. Turn once after enough bubbles have formed on the top.
