Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Oatmeal: Healthy & Psyched

“The peanut butter is primarily there because it tastes so good and I can’t seem to go a day without eating it. But peanuts contain protein, fibre and monounsaturated fats, which have a massive range of benefits, for example keeping you feeling full, your digestive system moving and your heart healthy.”

“Light fast summer lunch with a touch of Middle East. So easy, so delicious. But I’m not spending much time to philosophise, so without a further ado, let’s go to the recipe.”

Jam Filled Slippers: Anja Y La Passion

“Since today is the Hungarian Kid Day, and this little cookie is one of the favorites among the kids around us, not only my little nephew, but my old friend, Jutka’s little daughter Rebeca likes it as well, and obviously me and my family loves it as well, so I though it worth to share. A super simple cookie, you can do it anytime, and not takes to much time, and the success is guaranteed.

We cannot bake enough from it. I dedicate this recipe to my friend Jutka, and her mother Magdi, while they are always asking for the recipe, while Rebeca loves it and it is egg-free, which is something they are looking for as Rebeca is allergic to eggs. And if you replace the sour cream to any nut or soy based yogurt you have the vegan version of it. The name slippers is kind of a traditional word for any kind of cookie which has this shape.”

Curried Lentils with Spinach: Rough Measures

“It’s been a while since I have posted a main dish on here. I don’t know why, but I was towards recipes of the breakfast, baked or drink variety. I make dinner every day, but for some reason I don’t feel they’re worthy of a space on this here blog. They’re delicious and filling, yet somehow I just don’t put them on this space. But main dishes are just as important as those breakfast stars. So I’ll try to start adding a few more hearty dishes to the blog; like these curried lentils with spinach. Hearty meals please the man in my life, and I hope they please you too.”
