Coconut & Mango “Ice-Cream”

Every month or so I accidentally make a breakfast that I then like way too much and become obsessed with it for a couple of months, making little variations on it. The latest was this breakfast ice-cream/frozen smoothie bowl for which you actually need only 3 ingredients and they’re all pretty good for you. It…

Multi-Grain Porridge

This recipe is an improved version of the recipe from my mom’s old cookbook and definitely my favorite version of the famous Austrian cake. What I particularly like about…
