Knock, knock… trick or treat? Can you believe that Halloween is already around the corner? I know, crazy, right?
Today I am back with yet another delicious recipe from Argentina: Alfajores de Maicena. There are so many different kinds of alfajores (cookies) in Argentina that I had no idea existed before going there!
I am so happy about sharing today’s recipe: Traditional Dulce de Leche! If you know me, you will know that I love Nutella. Every Italian child grows up eating bread and Nutella, just like every Australian child grows up eating vegemite sandwiches and American children eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Crostata has always been my favourite cake. As a child, I would always ask my mother to bake an Apple Crostata for my birthday. Today, I still bake it quite often my my children, and this Nutella Crostata is their absolute favourite.
I love fudge, but since going lactose-free, it has been a bit difficult to find a good recipe for it. The one I used to make all the time is amazing, but it’s made with condensed milk, which has become a no-no for me.
I love a good smoothie, especially for breakfast or as a mid-morning snack. I find that having a glass of sweet fruity smoothie keeps me full till lunch time. The fact that that glass of goodness is also packed with vitamins is definitely a plus.
I love to have something sweet with my afternoon tea. I discovered this Low Fodmap Orange Quinoa Loaf a couple of months ago, and I liked it so much, that I made it many times ever since.
I love popcorn and I often make for the family when we stay home to watch a movie on the weekend. Popcorn makes a great snack, even for people with digestive problems.
When it’s tea time, I often feel the need for a quick snack, better if of the sweet kind. Following the Low Fodmap diet can make things hard, especially since I am having trouble with fructose.
I looooove cookies and the crunchier the better. I have to say that cookies in Italy are usually always crunchy. The Italian name for cookies is biscotti after all, and that means “cooked twice”.
There are times when only a chocolate brownie can satisfy your craving for sweets. As I am much more careful about what I eat since starting the low FODMAP diet, I am not having as many sweets as I used to.
Who doesn’t love a refreshing smoothie? I know I do and so do my children. This Kiwi Ginger Smoothie is both dairy-free and low FODMAP, so besides being yummy and healthy, it is also gentle on the tummy.
Since starting the Low FODMAP diet, I am always looking for healthy snack ideas and these Salted Caramel Pepitas fit the bill perfectly.
Since starting with the low FODMAP diet, I am always looking for healthy ways to incorporate sweet treats into my diet and these Low Fodmap Blueberry Muffins are perfect to have for breakfast or as a snack at tea time.
I love these Italian Red Wine Doughnut Cookies. I know it can seem quite strange to make sweet cookies with wine, but it is actually very common in Italy.
These Almond Pralines are addictive. Believe me, you may not be able to stop eating them! In Italy, when I was little, they were sold by street vendors during Christmas time, or at local fêtes and markets.
Today I am going to share with you the recipe for Papaya Banana Bread. This is a delicious breakfast treat and a great alternative to the more traditional banana bread recipes that you can find on my site.
After making my Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, I had some hazelnut pulp left and you know I love to re-use leftovers, don’t you? I dug and dug and I found a great recipe for it: Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles.
As a child, my favourite breakfast drink would always be cold milk with chocolate/cocoa powder in it. But it had to be cold… or nothing. My favourite treat would be anything with Nutella, and, you guessed it, my favourite nut has always been hazelnut. So, when I saw this Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, I could not…
I have a confession to make: my fridge is full of little home-made jam jars like this Papaya Jam. In fact, I like to have different jams available at all times, especially for breakfast. I don’t eat much of it, but I like to have options.
With Easter just around the corner, I obviously had to share a traditional Italian Easter recipe! So, today I will show you how to make Easter Taralli.
I love muffins, especially for breakfast. I haven’t grown up eating them, as in Italy they are not something you would find easily when I was little. Italians usually have coffee or cappuccino with a croissant for breakfast, especially when eating out.
