Strawberry pesto spelt salad 

Strawberry pesto spelt salad is the abundance of spring in every bite. It's loaded with fresh strawberries, crunchy cucumbers, filling spelt (gluten-free) grain and crunchy roasted hazelnuts. Plus its tossed in the best homemade pesto sauce.

One bowl carrot cake muffins

One bowl carrot cake muffins will simplify your life. They are vegan, fluffy an loaded with all the good stuff. The hidden veggies, since my toddler and husband can spot vegetable a mile away are just sublime and adds to the uber fluffiness. These little bubs of goodness are pros at fooling even the very picky eaters of them all.

Blood orange waffles

Blood orange waffles couldn't come at a better time. It's spring pretty soon and oh my goodness I cannot wait. It's been a pretty tough two weeks since my son's second birthday. The notorious flue has gotten it grips on me. Hopefully it soon will pass, but for now, a crunchy stack of gluten-free waffles with these tangy blood oranges will suffice! I topped these vegan waffles with homemade coconut yogurt, bananas, coconut nectar and salted pistachio's.

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?

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.

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!

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.

Rainbow carrot butternut soup

Rainbow carrot butternut soup is super amazing and so nutritious. The season has come for warming soups and I absolutely love the fact that you can have a nutritional meal within half an hour or so. I made a batch of this lovely soup last week and I finished it in almost a day's time. I served this soup with a soft and chewy bread with a flavor punch, which was super amazing!

Sweet potato waffles

Sweet potato waffles have never come at a better time. This weekend, I am home alone once again and the only thing that can feul me with the toddler filled days are of course waffles. Not any old waffle will do. Only sweet potato waffles can do the trick. I went to the farmers' market this morning and I had to time it pretty nicely because sprinting through has to come with a game plan. Snacks, water and a list of to buy's. All the necessities led to a pretty smooth morning and a much-needed nap time afterwards (for the both of us btw).

Fluffy cinnamon pancakes

Fluffy cinnamon pancakes are perfect for a quick Sunday brunch. I always make a big batch of pancakes so I can stow some in my freezer ad a breakfast option or a snack for my little munchkin. He is quite a picky eater when it comes to breakfast and refuses to eat oats, chia pudding, and even smoothies. Porridge? No way. See what I'm dealing with here?
