Christmas vegan banana flapjack (a.k.a. oat breakfast bars)

Do I have to say that the closer Christmas gets, the quicker time runs. I stopped noticing the lapse between Sundays (people usually call it a workweek) as I’ve got so many things to do. 4 group assessments are coming, deadlines are in the first days of December! Jesus Christ! What is more, we’re hosting…

Persimmon mousse bars with raw cacao and mango jelly 

Am I the only person who loves persimmons? Obviously not. But you can’t even imagine how excited I am when I see the first fruits on the shelves of local shops. Still crude and hard to the touch, with its skin green in places, these fruits are an epitome of autumn for me. You may…

No Bake Cashew, Almond and Coconut Cheesecake Bars

Midterms time… Should I say how reluctant I am to sit down and get ready for the exams?.. 2 out of 3 have already passed, thank God. But the toughest is approaching – Accounting… I get goose bumps every time I hear somebody mentioning that creepy subject. It’s not that I am not ready. But…

Chocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Pancakes

What comes to your mind first when you think about breakfast? Well, it depends, as one of my professors says. There are people who limit themselves to a cup of americano to start the engine. Others (me included) go to bed dreaming of waking up to feast on cereals or morning oats loaded with berries,…

Peach & Pistachio Focaccia

Can anyone explain me the fact that it’s the end of July already? What’s going on with this world? I mean, WHY this bloody time is running so fast? I do realize that months inevitably pass by only due to the rapid change in food trends on foodgawker. It hit me the last time I was scrolling…

Blueberry pie

Rise and shine! Good morning, World! It seems to me recently that every day I wake up earlier than the day before. The reason for the changes in my daily schedule is that I just can’t wait to get down to my countless affairs since early evening of the previous day. Gosh, I’m a fanatic…

Cottage cheese fruit mini-pizzas

What is UP everyone? 🙂 I didn’t even notice that Friday has officially rolled around. TGIF! To be honest, I spent my all day editing entries for numerous recipe submitting sites. Gosh, there is a whole lot of them! But I sorted out those I liked most of all and got down to work. Well…..

Red currant cake with sour-cream glaze

Oh I love summer. This is exactly the time when I succeed in balancing my mind – first of all, this includes having a proper sleep (be attentive here – I don’t mean sleeping till the lunch time. I literally hate waking up late. So I rise and shine at around 7:30 a.m. even when I…

Cottage cheese pie with blueberries

We all know for sure what summer is all about: sun, fun, sea, tan, curly salty hair, bright colors, ice-cream, lemonade, cocktails, endless nights.. It can go on forever. But, on top of all, (is it only for me or not?) summer is associated with lots of perfectly ripe fruits and berries everywhere around! Tons…

Blood orange and cardamom polenta cake

March is driving it to the end, and here is some news: I’m home. Hardly can I say finally, but still I came back to Russia and there’s nothing to do with it until autumn (I’ll be back to London for my further studies in September. Fingers crossed). What can I say. It’s been 5 days…

Brownie Cheesecake

Another Sunday. Another empty fridge and my pathetic attempts to construct something looking like a decent meal without going out for weekly food shopping. And.. Another cheesecake, standing solitary at the top shelf of the fridge, waiting for everyone to wake up and sink their teeth into these tempting layers of splendor. Remember what I…

Frangipane Tart with Peaches
