Homemade Pizza Sauce With Extra Veggies Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com41 Comments

To be fair, it’s not much of a recipe, rather just an idea to share. My boy is on a restricted diet, which is beyond being a picky eater. He has sensory issues with food, with lots of food groups. Therefore he’s almost exclusively on a diet consisting of pizza, pasta with tomato sauce, cheese and cereal. On good days …

Yummiest Superfood Salad Recipe With Indigo Herbs Giveaway

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com124 Comments

After a bit of thinking, this is the best title I could have thought of. Yup. There’s so much goodness in this salad, that they won’t all fit in the title line. I think I mentioned this before, that my favourite salads are all a combination of both vegetables and fruits. The fruit always add a twist, a sweet kick …

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, …

Kid’s Risotto With Salmon, Courgette And Lots Of Cheese

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com2 Comments

One of the my little guy’s tolerated (i.e. cooked until it’s unrecognisable and well hidden under mountains of cheese) vegetables is courgette. Probably, because it’s a little tasteless. Therefore, I try to use it whenever I can. It can go into a lot of different dishes, including risotto. The other evening, when I was desperate to find a way to …

Smoked Salmon Carpaccio With Dijon Potato And Cucumber Salad

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

This was a treat meal for my hubby as he loves smoked salmon. I wanted to make something light and summery but still a full meal at the same time. A healthy manly meal 🙂 It’s very easy and quick to prepare. The whole trick is to use a lot of herbs and the strong flavour of dijon mustard. The unusual …

Vegan And Raw Mini Energy Bars

We all know, just how bad refined sugar is for us. If you ever tried to cut down on your sugar intake, you know how hard it can be. Low-sugar and “sugar-free” substitutes are not healthy either (and they taste terrible). Dried fruits are great to satisfy your sugar craving. They are full of fibre, and antioxidants (especially figs and …

Sweet, Spicy Roasted Christmas Snacking Nuts

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

I have to confess: I am addicted to this fantastic winter snack. When making them at home, the divine smell will turn your house into a German-style Christmas market. So why not make some mulled wine too? They could also make lovely, handmade gifts, if you fill small cellophane bags or glass jars with them. If you think the measurements …

Red Velvet Buttercream Frosting For Cupcakes

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

Recently, I had to make some quick, but Christmassy looking cupcakes for a charity Christmas fair, so I decided to use my good old Low Sugar Chocolate Cupcakes recipe and add some fancy frosting. Lovely, velvety, Christmassy red. The cupcakes are ready in 35-40 minutes and the frosting should only take another 20-25 minutes plus cooling in the fridge (about 10-15 …

Smoked Mackerel Salad With Toasted Focaccia Croutons

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com2 Comments

This was actually my husband’s idea based on a Chicken Caesar Salad I prepared for him recently. He craved for something similar but with fish. Plain roasted fish is quite boring in salad, but smoked fish works well. It’s very tasty and adds body and texture to it. But then, you can’t really have it with the Caesar dressing because …

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

This gorgeous salad is one of my long time favourites, really should have shared the recipe long ago! I can safely call it a full meal as it’s so fulfilling and flavoursome. Full of vitamins, protein and makes a perfect midweek meal. We have this almost every week not only because I love it, but also because hey… it’s a …
