Chocolate Ice Cream With Macabella And Yogurt

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com27 Comments

I do like a summer treat, especially chocolate ice cream. Well, not only in summer. Anytime. But it has to be chocolate ice cream. Just like with any other desserts, I’m quite picky: sugary lemon and vanilla  flavours just won’t do it for me. Making ice cream at home is not too complicated and it can be prepared without a machine, …

Chimichangas With Matcha Green Tea Cream Cheese And Strawberries

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com9 Comments

I prepared this dessert for a Mexican themed evening with my Girl Gang. It looks absolutely amazing and it’s super easy to prepare. I was looking for some Mexican dessert online, but I wanted something less complicated than flan. Then I remembered Ashlee Marie’s Cream Cheese Chimichangas, they are simply irresistible and I tried them before. But this time, I wanted …

Skinny And Vegan Mediterranean Vegetable Soup With Pearl Barely 

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com3 Comments

You know the type of craving, when it’s cold and gloomy outside and you’re dying for a hot, satisfying soup. But you suddenly realise that you have nothing at home for anything “classic”. Then, you start to search through the fridge and the cupboard for possible ingredients. I quite enjoy this actually, letting your tastebuds and nose to take you …

Rainbow Pasta Salad With Greek Yogurt Dressing

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

We had some of my husband’s male friends coming over the other day for a quick lunch before watching football. And what a good wife am I? I prepared roast chicken for them with greek salad, but then I thought, I should probably give them another – more substantial – side dish option before heading to the LIBRARY. This salad …

Cauliflower And Paneer With Coconut Curry

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love paneer, it’s a good base for vegetarian curry recipes and by adding it to literally any veggie curry or replacing meat with it works out always for me. With cauliflower I am a bit ambivalent, I usually need a masking flavour to make it tastier. Curry is one of them. This time however, I was craving coconut curry and …

Warming Winter Salad With Quinoa, Roasted Vegetables and Avocado

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I assume – dear reader – you feel the same way after all the holiday celebrations: not only that you ate a lot in the last 2 weeks, but lots of sugary, greasy or meaty things. (Not to mention the drinks…) I feel that my body needs healthier food, because I even have cravings for lighter, vegetarian meals. But still …

Easy Creamy Carrot Soup With Ginger

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com3 Comments

Winter time is soup time for me, I love all kinds of veggie loaded clear or creamy soups. They are also a great way to put more vegetables on the dinner table. Carrot is one of the vegetables we can still benefit from after the cooking process, because it’s easier for our bodies to take advantage of some of its protective …

Creamy sweet potato with salmon and petit pois

It’s always challenging to get small children to eat more fish. Luckily, apart from fish and chips and fish fingers there are plenty of other yummy options to get them to eat fish AND veggies. Sounds too good? This recipe is always a hit for my 19 months old, he loves sweet potato and tolerates salmon and petit pois. The …

Cauliflower Mac’n’Cheese – great way to get them to eat more veggies

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

This recipe is a great version of the much-loved, original Mac’n’Cheese, one of our favourite childhood meal. It’s creamy and crunchy at the same time: the whole family will love it. It also takes no time and very little effort to prepare it. The good thing about cauliflower is, that it’s packed with Vitamin C, K and B6, fiber, protein and …
