Super creamy hemp pasta

Super creamy hemp pasta is such a delish weeknight meal, filled with so many nutritional goodies and vegan protein. I rarely eat pasta, but when I do I makes sure that I fill up on lots of vegetables and nutrition. This dish is the perfect balance between spoil, nutrition and just all around good flavors.

Creamy mushroom stuffed spinach ravioli

Creamy mushroom stuffed spinach ravioli is the way homemade pasta should be done. The effort is a tad bit much so be sure to be in the mood for food when you make these. These pretty green pasta pockets are filled with a cashew cream mushroom filling, topped with sauteed crunchy shallots, kale, and toasted brazil nuts. These pasta pockets can be made and frozen, so you can whip them up whenever the cravings start calling. No more boring mid-week meals for you!

Chocolate marble banana bread

Chocolate marble banana bread is just another love declaration to my all time favorite baked bread ever. I have made so many variations and every time that one is my favorite, but I have to say banana and chocolate go so well together. And most people would say chocolate goes well with most deserty things, but banana is the perfect dance partner!  This bread is especially yum because within every bite you get a melty bit of chocolate, who can say no to that?

Chocolate chunk oatmeal raisin cookies

Chocolate chunk oatmeal raisin cookies will give you that extra oomph to give this tough week one last go. They are filled with good stuff like oats and raisins, but also with the super not so good for you stuff, chocolate. What is a cookie without enormous amounts of chocolate? But like I said these cookies have a whole lot of good in them and that's a yes in my book.

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.

Chocolate orange babka

Chocolate orange babka is such a beautiful bread recipe. It has all the flavors of winter in each bite. The chocolate walnut and orange flavors are just absolutely wonderful together if you are a citrus lover or not. I never really loved orange in sweet baked desserts or bread, but since making this winter melody, I am completely smitten!

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!

Harissa butter bean tomato stew

Harissa butter bean tomato stew is the perfect stew to comfort and to ramp up your metabolism this winter. I need something spicy and comforting at the same time. I haven't properly prepared myself for his weather, boy oh boy. This morning was so so cold and I wish I had some of this harissa butter bean stew to keep me warm. When I got home I had to make a quick batch, because -1 weather has got me quivering in my boots.

Sticky sweet butternut rolls

Sticky sweet butternut rolls must be the perfect start to 2019. Let me be very honest here, we didn't even make the new year. We passed out around ten and slept through the whole thing, I guess life does change after kids, or are there some diehard parents out there? I celebrated the new year by making these delish sticky butternut rolls. They are completely gluten-free (if you like), vegan and a big favorite side dish of mine. That's my way of celebrating the new year, lots of comfort food!
