Sweetpea Pantry Baking Mixes Review

In Foodie Me, Reviewsby eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

I normally prefer to make food from scratch which takes time but then I can eat food the way I like it. It’s sort of an everyday luxury. Every so often though, life just gets too big and busy. Sometimes you just need to save some time whenever it’s possible. Like getting home later than planned, unexpected guests popping around, …

Homemade Pizza Sauce With Extra Veggies Recipe

In Foodie Meby 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 …

Quick Midweek Meals With Capsicana

In Foodie Me, Reviewsby eva.katona@yahoo.com5 Comments

I love to cook and I normally use fresh ingredients, including the herbs and the spices. But there are days when I don’t feel to cook everything from the scratch, because it’s been a busy day, I’m too tired or the kids are just too handful. I’m not pretending I never used boxed meals from the supermarket, but I don’t …

How To Cook Easy And Quick Vegetarian And Vegan Caribbean Food At Home

In Foodie Me, Reviewsby eva.katona@yahoo.com29 Comments

Have you ever tried Caribbean food? It’s vibrant, colourful and bursting with flavours. The combination of sweet and piquant, the mild fruity flavours and the aromatic hot sauces are a special fusion of a multicultural history. African, Latin-American, Spanish, Creole and some other cuisines are all blended into Caribbean flavours. I absolutely love it, however, it is traditionally heavily meat …

Yummiest Superfood Salad Recipe With Indigo Herbs Giveaway

In Foodie Me, Reviewsby 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, Reviewsby 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, …

Recipe: Rose Petal And Orange Jam

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.com9 Comments

At the beginning of this summer, in early June, me and the kids visited my parents in Hungary. (Whilst poor Daddy caught up on a few pints and stag dos.) My dad has a fantastic garden, the children had a blast. He’s got lots and lots of roses, beautiful, sumptuous, soft pink, velvety red and bright yellow. I was marvelling …

Very Buttery And Very Cheesy Mini Bites

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.com26 Comments

This is such an easy and yummy snack to make, that even small kids could help. Bobcat loved being in charge of the rolling-pin and sprinkling the sesame seed. All over the place. And eating raw dough of course. (Who did not like that as a kid. Or even as a grown up.) These cheesy bites are great for parties, for …

Spicy Mushroom Stew With Home Made Gnocchi

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.com12 Comments

In most Eastern-European countries, stew is everything. Hungary, where I’m from, is no different, we have all sorts of stews including goulash, which Hungarians eat as a soup. I know, we’re weird. The cuisine is of course heavy in meat dishes. Luckily, a lot of meat based dishes can be turned into a lovely vegetarian meal quite easily. My mum …
