Homemade flour tortillas

IMG_0187

I started writing this post about my homemade tortillas and then I realised I did not really know much about Mexican food at all.. so felt a bit bad writing about it. I mean, I don’t even know the differences between burrito, fajita, tacos and enchiladas. I know tortilla is the bread that forms the base of all of these, but that’s about it. So that got me doing some research to expand my horizon…

Tortillas are such a great way to use leftovers. With summer coming in am also more keen to have cold lunches like wraps or salads. That’s a complete no-go in the colder months of the year when I need something warm and comforting to keep me going. But right now spring is in full bloom so all hail for chopped veg if any shape or form! (And ice cream but that’s another story)

Last evening I wanted to use tortilla to use leftovers but I had none left, and I really felt to lazy to walk to the convenience store around the corner to get some. Then I thought, if I can make my own bread, surely I can make tortillas!

Fuller longer lunch salad (Vegan, GF)

Quinoa salad 2

Helloooo sunshine! I can’t bring myself to eat any salad during the winter, but when spring comes I go all out! Especially this year with the wedding now only 4 weeks away. Here is one of my recent favourites that will bring you lots of vitamins and keep you full all day until dinner thanks to the high protein content! I sometimes add a hard-boiled egg to it for some extra protein. As for many salads, it is very easy to make, just a lot of chopping.

Mini Lemon and Berry coulis Cheesecakes

It’s a classic, and one you have probably seen in lots of other blogs. But hey, it is my first time! I love cheesecake but I never tried one myself. I thought it would be too difficult I think. Also I usually bake with what I have at hand, and I never buy cream cheese, so cheesecake requires a specific grocery shopping trip – not happening.

Last week, finally, the moment arrived where all the ingredients are in the fridge/cupboard… aka I was at my mom’s (shame). And since it is a classic I just decided to follow the recipe on the tin! Keeping it easy through and through. And it worked like a charm! Click on this post for the full step-by-step recipe!

Easter Bunnies – almond milk and saffron brioches

Easter brioche bunnies

Easter is a great break in England because both Good Friday and Easter Monday are bank holidays. This year, with the wedding planning and all, I did not really have time to plan a gettaway. And to be frank, I just felt like staying home and chill (and bake).

I felt like baking something special while I had all this time at home.. so I went hunting for ideas on Pinterest (as you do). These were a lot of cute bunny cupcakes, but cake decorating is not really my forte so I had to pass. And then I came across this cute bunny brioche recipe.. which I could not really copy because t is in Bulgarian – according to Google translate. But was enough to get me started!
