Almond milk

Almond milk

As you know I am not a vegan. Nor a vegetarian. But I like to try out new recipes. Also vegan recipes. When it comes to cooking, I have no problems…I find it very easy to cook vegan. But when it comes to baking…this is another story. But I don’t give up. My biggest problem is replacing eggs. The other ingredients I can replace without problem: instead of butter I take margarine or oil. Instead of honey I take maple syrup. And instead of milk I take almond milk. So I decided to make almond milk. One can buy it in the shops to buy I have a problem: one can always buy 1 liter. But often I need much less. And before I buy too much, I prepare it myself. The almond milk is easy to prepare...you only need almonds and water. You can read below how you can make almond milk.

Chocolate salami

Chocolate salami

Today's recipe is a recipe from my childhood. I must confess, I never baked the chocolate salami myself until a few weeks ago, but this recipe has been on my to-do list for so long. And one cold day I wanted to eat something sweet and since I had all the ingredients at home I prepared the chocolate salami.

Fried king oyster mushrooms with mozzarella and walnuts

Fried king oyster mushrooms with mozzarella and walnuts

The summer is over now. I was hoping that we will have some nice late summer days or nice autumn days, but this is not the case at the moment. Theoretically autumn is not so bad...if it wouldn’t rain so much. And if the days wouldn’t be so gray and cold. What I like about autumn is the colourful leaves and the seasonal fruits and vegetables. Figs, mushrooms, pumpkins...they all have season now. All this makes my heart beat faster...because I can finally use all these ingredients again. And share with you recipes that have been waiting for years to be published. For example, these fried king oyster mushrooms with mozzarella and walnuts. The first time I cooked the recipe 3 years ago. And then 2 years ago. But only now do finally share the recipe with you. Better later than never, or?

No-Knead cheese, tomato, and garlic bread

Last weekend, Zorra and Sandra called for the 20th synchronous baking event. We baked a no-knead bread with cheese, tomatoes and garlic. The original recipe is from kingarthurflour.com But I changed the recipe a bit.

Mini Pavlova

Mini Pavlova


I know, I know. There are already 2 pavlova recipes on the blog. At the beginning I didn’t want to publish today’s recipe. After I cooked the asparagus with sauce hollandaise, I remained with 2 eggs whites. I decided to bake mini pavlovas. When I was home for Christmas I had an attempt to bake some. But since I was not familiar with the oven and I also had no oven thermometer I burned the pavlovas. At my place I always use a thermometer so this time everything worked just fine. When I tried the first piece I was so excited that I could not keep the recipe only for me. And I think you will not mind.

Tomatoe-basil soup

Tomatoe-basil soup

From an astronomical point of view, the summer will continue until 22 September. But if you look out the window, autumn is already here. For a few days it has been cold and rainy in Vienna. I am a summer person and I really hoped that we will still have a few warm days. But it does not look like this at the moment. As the weather was cold, I cooked a hot soup on the weekend.

Italian antipasti plate

Italian antipasti plate

A few weeks ago I bought a 3-in-1 sandwich maker. My sandwich maker broke, so I was looking for a new one. And then I have found a cheap 3-in-1 device. In addition to the sandwich plate, it also has a grill and a waffles plate. I had to test everything, so I decided to prepare an antipasti plate. Everything worked very well so that I can show you today the result. An Italian antipasti plate is something very tasty and even if you don’t own a grill, you can prepare it. I will not make state any quantities, only a list of the ingredients and the preparation method.
