The food diary | 1

June 22nd  •  Posted in Food

I never planned to start this blog series, I was actually trying to take pictures of my week to share with you, but I ended up photographing mainly the food we ate, and it was a lot. So this will be the first food diary of many to come in the future on this blog – sorry for any mouthwatering photography and thanks to the boyfriend for helping with taking these pictures!

VEGAN CHOCOLATE PANCAKES

I came across this recipe when browsing through Yummly and decided to try it – had to double up the doses to come up with four decent size pancakes and I changed the ingredients a little bit to suit our tastes, but they were truly delicious! I love a bit of a vegan and non-diary choice now and again, especially when they’re as good (or better) as the dairy version! Served with some dark chocolate topping and paired with our usual soy latte, they made the best breakfast of the whole week really.

GARLIC FONDUE & GRILLED BREAD

This was another Yummly inspired recipe (you can find the original one here) which was super easy and quick to prepare. However I decided to melt the cheese down on a low heat instead of mixing it all and nothing else, which made a better fondue, a lot more creamy and delicious. We both love feta cheese so it was the perfect quick summer lunch for us!

FRENCH CHEESE PUFFS WITH ZUCCHINI AND BROCCOLI

These french cheese puffs make the perfect light dinner if paired with some vegetables, and we went for some zucchini and broccoli and the result was delicious! This is a recipe I tried a lot of times before and never failed in meeting everyone tastes, they are so light but delicious and can be paired with literally everything.

LAVA CAKES FOR TWO

Last month I shared my lava cake recipe here and this week I decided to treat the boyfriend with them for breakfast. Super easy to make and quick to bake, these were super delicious with their warm, soft heart. We kept them quite simple without the strawberries and the icing sugar, but they were so good as well!

ZUCCHINI PIZZA MUFFINS

We had fun preparing these together! I shared my pizza muffins recipe here and I still stick to it most of the times but this time we decided to add some chopped zucchini to the mixture as well, and we went for only white flour instead of whole-wheat flour as in the original recipe. It’s an understatement saying they came out pretty damn delicious.

CLASSIC SCONES + NUTELLA + ICED SOY LATTE

Another breakfast and this time we baked some classic scones together for the first time and we are both proud to say they came out perfect. Served with some Nutella and paired with my Iced Soy Latte they were perfection and I just can’t think of a better breakfast I would love to eat right now!

HOMEMADE PIZZA

Lastly my boyfriend prepared some pizza dough and baked it in the evening and it was so so good. There’s nothing better than some freshly baked homemade pizza, and when your boyfriend bake it for you without the need of you even stepping a foot inside the kitchen for one time, it just tastes even better.

This week we just baked a bit more than normal, but we were so satisfied with the results and happy to treat ourselves a little bit to something good and homemade.

Is this something that happens to you as well?
