Raspberry, coconut, speculoos vegan popsicles

--> recette en français


   Well, it's seem that this year, Summer has decided to take some liberties, at least on the Northern part of France and maybe Europe. It's either a heat wave or rain and "cold" weather, hard to know what to where or to plan anything, especially when you're working outside. I have had a whole bunch of different clothes and shoes just "in case of" in the trunk of my car at work.


   Anyway, I decided to share this recipe of popsicles because, hey, Summer is going to come back anytime! Since I've been back from Amsterdam and the delicious speculoos cookies I brought back, I often prepare a dessert with this coconut yogurt, fresh raspberries and speculoos cookies, I don't know where that association came from but I love it! So I thought, why not make some popsicles with these ingredients 😉

Avocado cucumber apple cold soup

--> recette en français




   If you've been following the blog for quite some time, you may have noticed that I love soup, I repeat it each time I publish a soup recipe. Whether warm and comfy in Winter or fresh and light in Summer, it's a good way to stay hydrated and eat veggies, legumes or even cereals in a simple manner.


   Lately, we've been brainstorming about what to do with our huge numerous cucumbers we have at work with my colleagues apart from tzatziki and salads and we talked about cold soups. One of them made a cold cream with cucumber and some "kid cheese" as I like to call it, I don't know if it exists outside of France but to me and cheese amateurs, it's not really cheese, it's something chewy wrapped into individuals packs. Anyway,  thought about what to use instead and I thought about avocado to bring some creamy texture.

Quinoa flakes cookies (vegan, gluten free)

--> recette en français




    Long time I didn't published a new recipe here, I'm very sorry about that, I've been publishing on the French version but I've been doing long hours at my current job and I'm exhausted - or very busy with groceries, cleaning, cooking meals and taking care of Jesse, my dog - on my days off.


   I'll try to get back on track and publish the seasonal recipes I've published in French for the past weeks.


   About the recipe, I made these cookies last May, I love cookies as you can see on the blog and when I bought these quinoa flakes, I knew I wanted to bake them in a dessert and first went for cookies in order to make another recipe with them later on.

Raw Spring pointed cabbage, fennel, carrot and apple salad, almond butter and soy sauce seasoning

--> recette en français



    A few days ago, I stumbled on a type of cabbage I didn't even know about called "chou pointu" which means "pointed cabbage" in French because of the shape its leaves give it. It's a Spring cabbage, sweeter and more easily digestible. Its leaves are tender and slick. It had been a while since I wanted to make a raw cabbage salad so I gave it a try.


   Lately, the weather has ben very ugly in France and I kind of only crave for comforting and warm dishes but I thought a good salad would be nice to celebrate May. 


   I had a fennel and a carrot to use in the fridge and I thought that an apple would bring some sharpness. If you don't like fennel just skip it and put more cabbage.

{ Jesse 4-year-old birthday } Banana gluten free dog cookies

--> recette en français



    Last year,  I prepared some healthy pumpkin cookies for Jesse 3-year-old birthday - muffins too but she liked the cookies way better - with healthy natural ingredients. This year, I promised her to bake a new recipe for her 4th birthday and she enjoyed these cookies last weekend.


   These two recipes are either eatable by our fury friends but also ourselves, so no problem if one of your kids you happen to grab one to taste. These cookies are vegan but do not forget that our dogs and cats are not vegetarian nor vegan, whatever our diet is and for whatever reason, they need to eat meat/fish or it could be dangerous for their health. However, a few vegetarian/vegan treats from time to time is not bad for them.
