Super soft pretzel bagels

Soft pretzel bagels are just what I need today. It's been a pretty long winter and since the festive season, I have been thinking of these gorgeous beauties that I ate almost every day with my son at the markets. Bread has become such comfort and solace for me and nothing beats a freshly baked pretzel.

Vegetable packed tomato basil soup

Vegetable packed tomato basil soup is a super quick way of getting in all your vegetables in one nutritious bowl. This weekend was excruciating cold like can't feel my toes kind of cold and flu seeping through your cold kind of cold. My husband was away for work this past weekend and our fireplace was on the frits, I was not a happy mama this weekend. Apart from the cold, I had a pretty eventful weekend avec my little man. It's hard keeping these little ones busy in this cold, I tell you! I'm just thinking I am so glad we left Norway before it got really cold!

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters are just amazing as they sound and look. I wanted to recreate my utmost favorite side dish that tastes like dessert. These fritters are life changing and you'll want to make them for every Sunday lunch from now on. I thought they might be quite fitting for the Christmas day, just because absolutely spoiling yourself is what it's all about!

Chai pumpkin churros

Chai pumpkin churros are essential when the festive season is here. I know churros more as "dough fills" from my childhood. They are a whole other post by themselves and I'm sure going to get up all nostalgic about them, but for now churros, my friends. Not only do these totally vegan churros taste super delish, coated in sugar and dipped in chocolate, but these churros have two special ingredients. Homemade chai spice and sweet mashed pumpkin. Yes, these are super special churros for a super special time of the year!

Vegan Hertzoggie tart

Vegan Hertzoggie tart has been on my mind for ages. Hertzoggies is one of my absolute favorite South African desserts ever. They usually come in a small cookie form and is enjoyed over tea and chats late afternoon. I certainly love this tart almost as much as the actual cookies. I have made a smaller cookie version too that I will share with you very soon, but for now this delish tart will take over your taste buds.

Pumpkin French toast sticks

Pumpkin french toast sticks are just perfect for international French toast day. They taste amazing. All the infusions of Autumn are there. The hints of gingerbread, the sweetness of the pumpkin and the chocolate sauce are just wonderful. I know I should probably get started on making all those festive recipes, but I am still stuck on pumpkin and fall over here?!

Spelt rye bagels

Spelt rye bagels are a super healthy and quick lunch alternative. These fluffy and nutritious bagels can be made ahead of time and frozen. So whenever the need strikes for a fresh bagel, you can grab one out and toast em. They are especially tasty with some pesto, pickled red onions and some cheese.

Pecan brûléed banana tarts

Pecan brûléed banana tarts are just amazing. I love all the pumpkin and apple pie creations at the moment, but for some reason I just have pecans and beautifully sugar coated banana's on my brain. I want to make a kind of pie one of these day's with my very own pastry ect, but when the craving hit's and you don't have the time for tassels or hassles, these little beauties sure do come in handy.

Fig rye banana bread

Fig rye banana bread is a banana bread lover's dream come true. This bread is dense yet light, moist and so delish with the dried figs hidden in there. I absolutely love this bread and will def make it again, again and again. The spelt and rye flours complement the luscious figs so well. I am still dreaming about this loaf.
