organic mat refresher

So today I decided to spray my mats and to share my mat refreshing mixtures with you. Refresher for a […]

fruit pulp cookies

Sometimes I just can’t resist to use the leftover fruit pulp from juicing to make  cookies. The beautiful colour and scent of  squeezed oranges, apples and carrots – too good to discard! Courgette, pineapple and ginger are nice, as well.  I never used the pulp of kale, broccoli  or celery. Besides their strong flavour they tend to be stringy. Not really desirable in a sweet treat. vegan fruit pulp cookies 4 generous tablespoons fruit pulp 1 tablespoon ground flax […]

In Bali we got to enjoy Ketut’s Dadar Cake, a Pandan scented crêpe filled with coconut and palm sugar syrup.

It made me more than happy that one day Ketut invited me to join her into the kitchen to give me a master class in dadar cake cooking. I tried to make it […]

“Take  any amount of fruit (1kg maximum at a time), and half as much sugar. Put fruit and sugar in a pot and  from now on you only need patience and the right method” my grandma said. She never allowed gelatine enriched sugar in her kitchen, by no means. Well, the secret was in the right method, which meant you had to spend 30 tiring minutes, a wooden spoon in hand, stirring  through the hot […]
