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.
Today I am sharing with you a very simple recipe for bread: Olive Oil Snail Bread Rolls. I love baking bread. It’s actually one of the things I like to do the most.
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.
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.
Oh cakes! I really love a moist slice of cake to go with my tea in the afternoon. This Italian Almond Carrot Cake is particularly good.
Are you cooking something special for this St. Patrick’s Day? I got you covered! These Green Buttercream Cookies are so easy to make and look really cute. They would be perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day themed tea party.
Today I will share with you the recipe for a deliciously sweet Fig Vanilla Jam. Having grown up in Italy, I have been really spoilt when it comes to sweet ripe seasonal fruits.
These days, Indians celebrate Holi, the festival of spring, also known as the festival of colours. During this time, people play, chase and colour each other with dry powder and coloured water, indoors and out on the streets. People visit family and friends to throw colours at each other and share lots of yummy food.
Today’s recipe is yet another vegan dessert: Vegan Mango Bundt Cake. Since discovering that I am lactose intolerant, I have been experimenting quite a bit with vegan desserts.
Today I’d like to share with you the recipe for Papaya Banana Cardamom Muffins. They are moist and delicious muffins that make for the perfect breakfast (or tea time treat, why not?).
Tomorrow is Mardi Gras or Carnevale as we call it in Italy. Carnevale is a big event in Italy – kids even stay home from school! Everyone dresses up for almost a week and goes on parades with all kinds of floats.
Happy World Nutella Day everyone! If you follow Manu’s Menu more or less regularly, you will know that I LOVE Nutella. I grew up eating it in Italy (yes, it is an Italian product!) and I still love it. However, you may also know that I have recently discovered that I am severely lactose intolerant.
I made these Peacock Cupcakes as part of my daughter’s 8th birthday celebrations. She had an India-themed party, so after making Mehndi Cupcakes and an Indian Cake, I thought to make Peacock Cupcakes to take to school for her classmates.
As you may remember, just before Christmas, my youngest daughter turned 8. She wanted an Indian themed birthday party, so she and her sister could wear the beautiful Indian outfits their grandma got for them from India.
Just before Christmas, my youngest daughter turned 8. She wanted an Indian themed birthday party this time, so she and her sister could wear the beautiful Indian outfits their grandma got for them from India.
As you may know, I have recently discovered that I am lactose intolerant. That means that I have to also find new ways to satisfy my sweet tooth, so I am always on the lookout for recipes that do not include dairy. Good vegan recipes, like this Vegan Apple Spice Cake, are always great, as…
I love choux pastries. I could eat 10 all by myself if left unattended! So, this Christmas I thought of trying my hands at making the in-famous Croquembouche, a traditional French dessert made with cream puffs filled with pastry cream and then dipped in caramel, and piled into a cone. For some reason, I had…
I love Christmas themed food and I especially love Christmas themed cupcakes. After sharing my Christmas Tree Cupcakes a few days ago, today I am back with these Reindeer Cupcakes. Aren’t they the cutest thing ever? My girls absolutely adored them and the best part is, you can involve the kids while decorating them as…
Even though it’s summer here in Australia, I still like to come up with fun Christmas projects to make with the kids… but because of the heat, I tend to prefer recipes that don’t necessarily require baking. These Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats fit the bill perfectly. They are very easy to make and will keep…
