Mushroom Spinach Chickpea waffles

Mushroom Spinach waffles are just YUM. We recently purchased a Tefal snack collection toaster that can do the works like yum toastees, muffins, donuts and Waffles. The sucky thing is that you have to buy the other plates for the donuts etc, but I just love the functionality of an appliance that can do so much. So that's why I certainly can vouch for this product. I can't wait to buy the donut plates so I can bake some donuts already! My son's first birthday and I am already undecisive between a waffle or donut bar? Choices, choices...I have forgotten how much I love the crunchy bite of a fresh waffle. Now I made these with chickpea flour that needs no eggs to get them combined. I just love Chickpea flour. It has a unique taste, but it's seriously so good and loaded with protein.

Autumn Beef lentil stew

Cozy beef lentil stew is one of my latest favorite recipes. The weather has been pretty indecisive just as Autumn aught to be I guess. I have switched my cupboards layered with winter goodies, but the sunshine has been pretty sweet lately. What makes this stew so perfect is the fact that its low carb, healthy and packet with winter veggies that will keep you fuller for longer when the winter chills do decide to come along!

Ten easy dinners

These ten dinner ideas have literally saved me a couple times. Dinner was on the table almost every night thankfully due to these easy recipes. Becoming a mother has been a full-time job and other duties like cooking took a backseat for a while, but once I got into the groove of being a mother and a wife it all just seemed a bit more effortless. Come and have a look at my summary of the last seven months of motherhood and of course some yum recipes to try for yourself!

Sweet potato Rosti à la Française

Sweet Potato Rosti has certainly become one of my favorite ways of eating sweet potato. Even though there are so many versatile ways of eating this amazing vegetable, I'll go for a crispy roasted Rosti anytime!

Honey Mustard Radish Chicken salad

Honey Mustard Radish Chicken salad had been a winner! Radishes... are such a peppery and fresh vegetable. I never used to like radishes, but I had this amazing idea to mix radishes with full grain mustard, oven baked chicken and crispy chickpeas. Their color is just so beautiful.

Country Style Roasted Duck

Country Style Roasted Duck is made with brown sugar & balsamic sauce, roasted veggies and chestnuts. As for entreé or dessert, there will be rosemary puff pastry chips, Saint Marcellin cheese and honey infused fruit salad with pink peppercorns. Both I might add is deliciously easy to make!

Skiing Verbier

Skiing Verbier was certainly one of my top skiing destinations with an added price-tag of course...So to finish off this healthy week I made an asparagus salad with balsamic roasted strawberries and Burrata Mozzarella. Was super yum, vibrant and crunchy, served with charred grilled Fillet steak. I missed meat, in the alps, you will pay roughly 30-45 euros for a 200-300g steak... I'll stick to this salad, though.

Healthier Boeuf Bourguignon Pie

Healthier Boeuf Bourgigniun pie is a good example of my "healthy" alternatives to some of the traditional French recipes. I think I might have gone a bit too far with this one. It's filled with meaty goodness and topped off with a crisp crust.

Two Easy French Dishes

Two easy French Dishes has taken up not a whole lot of time in my kitchen this week...You can make them in no time and they taste delicious! Serve Tomato Farcie as the main attraction and then raspberry Clafoutis as the encore dessert.

Je t'aime

Je t'aime, I love you. There are so many ways to say it, but to show it on Valentine's day can be a bit of a hassle when you have no clue what to do this year. I have you covered!
