1. the italian vibe

    somehow i’ve discovered tofu and pesto, here in milan. it really suits the best with this weather, i can’t say why, but it does. so, a lot of olives, corn, fresh stuff, seeds and some tofu + fresh pesto. 

    perfect for the hotness!

  3. brownie & cream cheese

    my brother turned 17 and my little niece is now 3 years old. for the celebration i baked absolutely not raw or vegan or healthy brownie, consisting 300g of chocolate and almost the same amount of butter!!

    but people were satisfied and that’s what matters

    enjoy the spring(summer!!)

    love, carolin

     
  4. catch up breakfast @ MAMO, a healthy fast food place

    this one(MAMO Roosikrantsi) was located in a house that had a courtyard kind of thing. it was seriously beautiful and sunny and had such a fresh atmosphere.

    + the breakfast options were endless. i had a fruit bowl with plain yogurt, seeds, honey and banana, liisa had granola with mango pureé. for dessert we shared a banana pecan nut cake. 

    everything was divine. i recommend!!

    enjoy the spring

  7. the birthday season

    raw banana and strawberry ice cream cake

    my lovely hannaliis turned 19 and i decided to make her a raw cake and one, that would excite me the most!

    the crust: i mixed 2 cups of cashews, almonds and peanuts with 1,5 cups of dates(also added some salt). 

    filling: mixed 3 frozen bananas with 1 cup of strawberry pureé

    cream: mixed coconut milk(set in the fridge overnight) with vanilla and cane sugar

    and then i topped everything with some shredded coconut and BASIL.

    and then i left it in the fridge until it was time to take it out.

    that’s it. i say it is magnificent, who needs baking anyway?

    love, carolin

     
  8. a properly fresh lunch for a sunny afternoon

    haven’t posted anything for years. mostly because my phone wasn’t capable for that sort of things. but now i’m back!

    so, here are some tomatoes with corn and rocket and, veggies and an egg anf of course we cannot forget my favourite: cottage cheese(what i lately like to season with dijon de miel.

    perfect for those days you have to work out every minute or just run from one place to another.

    PS! don’t forget the kefir :)

    love, carolin

     
  9. the easter cake, my way

    yes, i have 31 minutes to publish this on the right day!!

    so, i was inspired by a recipe i saw at the local morning tv-show, but ofcourse i made my adaptions. due to the fact that i still cannot(read: don’t want to) use my oven, i have to think of other ways how to make delicious sweets.

    the crust is made with digestive biscuits and coconut oil

    for the filling i melted 400g of white chocolate with 1 dl of coconut milk, then added 400g of ricotta cream and vanilla sugar. when evenly mixtured i poured it on the crust and then refrigerated it for SEVERAL hours. 

    this cake is just tout sweet(as i like my cakes), but if you prefer some ‘colours’ then i recommend spreading some blackcurrant jam between the filling and crust or adding some lime/lemon juice to the filling.

    and that’s it, my easter cake, it’s white and there’s ricotta and the grapes look like easter eggs!

    enjoy

    love, carolin

  12. FRUIT LOOPS!

    cereal for breakfast.

    classic.

    this post is dedicated to my dear fruit loops’ lover anne marie, who’s so-so far away and whom i so-so miss! love you

    and you all too, carolin

     
  13. mardi gras/shrove tuesday/martedi grasso etc, all in all. THE FAT TUESDAY. perfect for a food blog, yes?

    well in estonia it is called Vastlapäev, which i cannot translate, because i don’t know the word in english, basically A Day of A Shoe!?

    and in estonia it is very little or not at all associated to religion. according to custom, we eat pea soup and sleigh or skate. FOR dessert we make those heavenly buns you can see on the picture.

    they are basically like dinner rolls, but sweet and it is important to cut off the “hat” and fill the bun with jam and whipped cream.

    for me it’s a lovely day, and strangely i had an accident yesterday so i was forced to skip school. that was perfect for hunting for the best vastlakukkel(shrovetide’ bun) in town. 

    actually, THE BEST buns i am going to enjoy tonight at my mom’s place, but still. they were nice

    have a nice holiday, you all

    love, carolin

     
  14. yes, don’t forget the peanut butter!

    love, carolin

     
  15. YO, KIWI

    my routine these days, somehow can’t think of a variation: plain yogurt, cinnamon, banana, more cinnamon, kiwi/orange/pear, almonds, nuts, raisin, all sorts of seeds and HONEY on top of it. 

    + i always have to mix it, so it looks a bit ugly, but i really believe it tastes better this way. is it crazy?

    enjoy your mornings, they’re getting warmer, spring is almost here!!

    love, carolin
