In Green, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

With Marie, the creative mind behind Humble Stuff we share the same ideas about being green. We even jokingly agreed on rather receiving eco-friendly cleaning products for Christmas than yet another jumper from Marks and Spencer. I’m always on the look out for natural everyday products without harsh chemicals and without giving up on performance. Not just for our planet, but …

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 …

Review: Nim’s All Natural Vegetable And Fruit Crisps

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I’m always on the look out for healthy and vegetarian nibbles. Bobcat is a very picky eater, he currently doesn’t eat any fresh fruits or vegetables apart from a little banana and some tomato. No matter how creative and persistent I am, he just won’t eat them. Therefore, I’m keen to try new things just to make him eat some …

Risotto With Mushroom And Spinach

This is an easy and healthy meal. Even small kids will like it. A lovely way to incorporate vitamin-rich spinach into our diet. Adding 3 different kind of onions and cheese will make this quick midweek meal very tasty. Because the spinach won’t turn your risotto green you don’t even have to explain it to your picky eater. Or tell …

Greek Style Farro Salad

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I fell in love with farro a few years ago and it was love at first taste. Similar to (and often interchangeable) pearl barley and spelt, but it’s more chewy. I love it for its neural taste. I only used it in salads so far, more to explore with soups. I normally buy the quick cook version, otherwise it needs …

Family Dayout Series: Drusillas Park East Sussex Review

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

Drusillas Park is located in East Sussex, short drive from the lovely coast. Our first time visit left me with ambivalent feelings. Some parts of it are really nice, but others are just run-down or just random. It has no apparent concept either: bit of a mix of everything, but not too original or exciting. The park tries really hard though: …
