Sourdough Brioche Buns

Having a boyfriend obsessed with Egg & Bacon Rolls, and even with all the amazing bakeries around us, surprisingly scarce offering of brioche buns, making these soon became a must. They are quick (relative to other types of enriched sourdough dough) and easy to shape and make, and pretty forgiving if your timing isn’t exactly…

Sourdough Bagels

Another round of snap lockdown here in Melbourne called for some more indulgent breakfast options, and bagels were number 1 on the list this time. There’s something so addictive in that chewy boiled crust of theirs. As they are made with a sourdough starter you will need to start prepping them a couple of days…

Cold Brew Coffee

Since moving to Australia not many days have passed that did not include drinking at least a cup of coffee – it is just that good here. Not to mention how many options there is, both of brewing methods and of beans available to purchase. I spend a couple of days a week working as…

Red Sauerkraut

One of the biggest discoveries or things I really gotten into this year, that have now became an add-on to almost every savoury meal and I honestly hardly imagine ever not having them on my plate, are all the different pickled and fermented veggies. It’s something that has always been a part of my life,…

Sticky Sourdough Cinnamon Scrolls

These are not your traditional cinnamon scrolls but more like a cross between walnut sticky buns, where the stickiness comes from maple syrup, and cinnamon scrolls. As I am trying to do most of my pastry and bread baking using sourdough starter , I applied this with this recipe as well. The recipe is very…

Vegan Macadamia Fudge

Realising there’s no way of winning there, I’ve stopped fighting my evening sweet-tooth cravings a while ago but I do still like to keep those after-dinner treats on the healthier side, without crazy amounts of sugar, especially with these snacking-prone times we find ourselves in (aka lock-downs and such). The Peanut Slice and the super…

Roasted Cauliflower and Beetroot “Salad”

Not sure if this one should be called a salad or just a tray of roasted veggies with a creamy tahini dressing and different toppings, but “a rose by any other name…” – regardless of what it actually is, it’s super delicious, and can easily be a stand-alone, clean meal, that is as tasty when…

Vegan Dark Chocolate with Salt Flakes

This chocolate only takes approximately 5 minutes to make and requires only 5 ingredients. If you’re a fan of darker, less sweet chocolates, it will definitely hit that chocolate craving spot, while still being very clean, ingredients wise. It’s super low in sugar content too, a little splash of maple syrup is all you’ll need….

Almond and Cranberry Biscotti

Growing up in Slovenia, being surrounded by many countries with such rich food traditions definitely has many perks, as many of them are only a short drive away. Italy, with all its goodness, is definitely one of them, and being able to finish a meal with some crunchy almond biscotti… These biscuits are so comforting…
