{ Waiting for Christmas } Vegan option chocolate ginger biscotti

--> recette en français

   Let's end this week with my last sweet recipe of the year that you'll b able to do for Christmas holidays or whenever you're craving som chocolate and spices, to offer or just enjoy yourself, as a treat with som tea or coffee or a snack, dessert or even breakfast.

   I'm not a big fan of chocolate but I like to bake some recipes with it in Winter or holidays because I find it quite comforting and to add even more comfort and warm feeling, I used ginger, ground and candied, that makes a nice association with chocolate.

{ Waiting for Christmas } Vegan cranberry black forest Christmas yule log cake in a jar (gluten free option)

--> recette en français

Each year, for Christmas holidays, I like to propose a yummy seasonal dessert. I made traditional yule log cakes for a time and then I kind of fell in love with desserts in a jar and so for Christmas cakes. Last year, I tried poke cake - a coconut chocolate persimmon one -  for a change and also a traditional Finnish dessert.

This year, I went back to dessert in a jar because I love to just plunge my spoon in the different layer and also that even if you'e not a pro at baking nice and pretty cake or dessert, it doesn't matter with jars.

Smooth and creamy oil free hummus, with sauteed mushrooms and seitan

--> recette en français

    A few weeks after the last published recipe, Fall is here and I'm back with a delicious recipe. I'm taking part to a new edition of a French food challenge and the theme of this month was "Let's hang out in the woods" and we had to propose a recipe with fruit or vegetables or nuts from the woods so I chose the mushrooms because, well, I just love them, raw or cooked and all the varieties I guess.

   To go with them, I wanted to try this dish I had eaten last Spring in Barcelona, in Hummus Barcelona, a vegetarian food place. I'm not a big fan of hummus but I wanted to give it another try and I had really enjoyed it because it was very smooth and also it was the first time I ate one as a dish with cooked mushrooms. And as I had hesitated with the seitan version, I chose to assemble all together today in this recipe.

Vegan Summer fruit pie, oats crust and coconut yogurt

--> recette en français

    I don't know about where you live but it's said that in France, everything turns slower during Summer holidays (July-August), some stores or restaurants close, some company too, sometimes for whole August. It seems that social networks are taking the same path, at least in France, maybe in the rest of Europe too or in the North hemisphere of the World. 

   Anyway, last Summer I was working a lot, long hours, long weeks and didn't have much time to cook or take care of the blog, this is I did but I decided to take it slow too, go on vacation in my family and just take the time to do other things. We already faced a long heat wave for more than a month in France, Europe and I know some other countries like in North America at least. So, I didn't cook much and would hardly prepare some salads, sometimes cook some rice or quinoa, more rarely the oven.
