Vegan Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream

Fall for me is all about pumpkins, carrots, cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts, lattes and hot chocolate.. It all sounds like something sweet and comforting – correct me If I’m wrong 😉 It turned out this week that my mother was celebrating her birthday in our townhouse.. Which means extensive home-cooking. So you may easily conclude that…

Hemp protein beetroot brownies 

I’ve recently been experimenting with various ingredients in order to achieve the best flavor combination of protein-packed brownies. Soooo.. here is a recipe of protein-packed beetroot bars. You may have dubious feelings, I know, BUT TRUST ME, it stood the most serious test by my boyfriend who ALWAYS tells the truth about things I cook…..

Coconut & Dates Mousse (VG, dairy-free, may be made V)

We all love the simple things in life, right? Instant coffees, in-shower makeup removers, touch IDs, multitools – you name it. These little things make it a lot easier (and, frankly speaking, we get used too quickly). You can apply exactly the same simplicity concepts to food preparation. Don’t you ever tell me that you…

Butternut Squash & Tangerines Chia Pot

My last visit to Russia brought me an unexpected adventure. One of my old acquaintances appeared with an interesting offer. Long story short: she runs her own little confectionery shop where she bakes amazing entremets and delicious patisserie. Sounds nice so far. But all that hype about clean eating and health frenzy taking over our…

Blueberry Chia Parfait

I got absolutely addicted to these chia parfaits. You may have noticed it from my latest recipe of mesmerizing emerald-green spirulina pudding. The recipe is ridiculously simple – you can experiment with any types of milk you could possibly think of (my favorites are cashew, almond and coconut milk ). If you are not Lactose-intolerant as I…

Oil-free protein-packed Carrot & Coconut Cake

Рецепт на русском внизу! I love loooove carrot cakes. Maybe nobody has ever seen me eating one, but every time at Starbucks something dies inside me when I see another piece. At this very moment there is a battle going on inside of my head. Fortunately, I’m not letting my guard down and the result is always…

Almond & Coconut Goodness Cookies with Coconut Peanut Cream

I promised to share the experience from the yesterday’s Christmas market we organized at the university. That was great, and we already covered all the expenses! Can’t even describe how happy I am that people enjoyed every bit so much. Even they all were quite skeptical at the beginning, I reassured each and every soul that…

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…

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…

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…
