    Cinnamon is one of my favourites spices! It reminds me the most of my grandmother serving me hot rice pudding sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon on top.

    Easy Naan Bread Recipe

    One reason why i love indian food so much is the naan bread order with it. Naan bread although is called bread is just not bread in my books. The naan is so full of flavour and it can be with the appropriate flavours a dish in itself. I know that normally the naan should have yogurt in it’s composition but as i just didn’t have any i decided to make some without it. And surprise surprise the naan was still very yummy. Ingredients for about 6-8 naans depending how big or small you make them: 3 cups of plain white flour 1 tsp salt 2 tsp of dry yeast…

    Carrot muffins with raisins and walnuts

      I am a bit more in the kitchen (although one with an actual cooker and sink is not in place yet) so i am trying to cook more for my children. Boogie is always asking for muffins and cookies so yesterday i obliged myself and baked some.

Ingredients: 1 cup white plain flour   1 cup whole wheat flour   1/2 cup soft brown sugar   2…
