Ingredients: smoked pork ham – if you can buy it still on the bone it’s great; 500 g white beans, washed well to get rid of all impurities; 1 carrot; 1 parsley root; 1 bay leaf; 2 onions finely chopped; 2 tbsp of…

    Baking: Dark and Rye Flour Bread

Now that my mother gave me her bread maker too I love experimenting with different kind of breads – the healthier the better. I tried making a bread by hand too but my kneading skills are not so good I am afraid.

    Eggless Pizza Recipe

    Pizza is one of my girls favourite food to eat so at least once a week i turn on the oven to make some. However when it comes to kneading i am not very good at it but i keep trying and trying. When i finally managed to replace the yeast with baking powder and the Yeast Free Pizza i also discovered that my 1 year old is allergic to eggs. Yeh not a good allergy isn’t it? Although i know that there is no good allergy…everything has eggs in… So what was left to do? Well, what does a mummy blogger do when she needs help? She asks for help…

    Yeast Free Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

      When you have kids of young age you can’t always have a meal plan. I do respect that mums that are organised and on monday know exactly what meal they will need to prepare friday for dinner but i am not like that. So this is why i am always on the look out for easy meals that can be ready and on the table under 30 minutes if possible. As i didn’t have any yeast in the house last week i decided that i could try and replace it with baking powder for my usual pizza dough. As i used baking powder i didn’t have to leave the…
