Pizza Muffins

Happy almost Friday guys! Today’s recipe is Pizza Muffins! I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, you may have or have not tried making pizza muffins before, but believe me you should try these! They are so delicious and yet so simple to make! And my preschool daughter loves them and wants them in her lunchbox all the time! What a success! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pizza Muffins

OK, so first of all my excitement comes from the fact that I haven’t tried these before and in general was really excited to make pizza like muffins or the other way around, not really sure. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used cornflour and plain flour(half and half), some passata, chopped ripe tomatoes, lots of Mozzarella cheese, Parmesan and a bit of mild Cheddar, and one green pepper. Oh, of course and the pepperoni.

The taste guys was amazing, exactly like pizza, like a really good pizza(the best probably). My daughter instantly loved them! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really can’t wait to try some other versions, vegetarian probably and share them with you.

Pizza Muffins

The Pizza Muffins are great on the go, for picnic, snack at any time or as an appetizer. There’s a bit of a downside, they’re not really on the very healthy side but I say everything in moderation is ok. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d like to think so. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you prefer a vegetarian version, simply skip the pepperoni. I assure these will taste as good as with the pepperoni, more like cheese & tomato pizza, which by the way is my favorite. I mean, what could go wrong with cheese & tomato pizza? Well, there’s probably something but that’s another topic. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how to make these pretty Pizza Muffins

Cherry Tomato & Cream Cheese Spinach Muffins

Happy Friyay guys! Today’s recipe is Cherry Tomato & Cream Cheese Spinach Muffins – perfect for lunch boxes and as a snack on the go!

Cream Cheese & Cherry Tomato Spinach Muffins

I’m all about lunch boxes recently. My daughter is quite fussy so I try to make her lunch boxes healthy, tasty and suited to her taste at the same time. The good thing is she loves fruit and veg so there’s no issue with that. But when it comes to sandwiches, soups and any other homemade food, she’s quite fussy. Number one rule is ‘no white’ which means no feta, no yogurt, no eggs, no cheese even. For example, the other day she asked me to make her a sandwich for school with ham and bread only. Can you believe it? I was pretty sure she wouldn’t like it but when I picked her up from school she’s finished all her lunch box and even said to me the sandwich was super tasty. Really? ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess her taste buds are still developing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheery Tomato & Cream Cheese Spinach Muffins

Also, she really likes savoury muffins, especially the spinach ones I make. So I thought I’d make some for her lunch box. I used cream cheese which I mixed with the spinach so she won’t tell there’s some. The ones I usually make are with feta cheese and she always picks it out. I added some sliced cherry tomatoes as I know she loves them. However she picked them out too. She really liked the muffins though and even wanted some more for the next day, apart from the cherry tomatoes which she asked me toย pick out. ๐Ÿ™‚ So, yes I’m all about school lunches now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cream Cheese & Cherry Tomato Spinach Muffins

I personally love these Spinach Muffins, I can’t get enough of them. But how could you not like them – they’re pretty, they’re tiny (like ‘two big bites’ tiny) and they taste amazing. As I already mentioned, perfect for lunch boxes, picnics and simply as a snack on the go.

Happy Sunday folks! Today’s recipe is Raspberry Chocolate pie – moist and chocolatey, this pie is a perfect treat for you Sunday!

Raspberry Chocolate Pie

I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! I myself had a super fun Saturday at a local farm picking some veg. The kids absolutely loved the idea of picking their own veg and then getting to help me cook them later. Seriously, freshly picked beetroot makes amazing veg chips. I should probably share the recipe with you (it’s no rocket science really, but there are a few tips and tricks) ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, I make them in the oven so they’re much healthier, tastier and cheaper too than the shop bought chips. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and the kids love them!

Raspberry Chocolate Pie

I really don’t know how come we haven’t done this earlier. The farm itself was beautiful with great restaurant where they served really delicious food. My favourite place though was the farm shop. Now, I’ve been to quite a few of those and to be honest wasn’t that much impressed for various reasons. But this particular shop, oh I was in heaven! ๐Ÿ™‚ First of all, it was very spacious, with lots of different counters filled with gourmet items. I honestly can’t stop thinking about it and about the items I’m getting next time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Raspberry Chocolate Pie

The Raspberry Chocolate Pie is super moist and chocolatey, you couldn’t resist. The raspberries add this amazing berry hint that is just divine with chocolate. The recipe is super simple, all you need is some flour, chocolate, eggs, sugar and raspberries.

Figs & Goat’s Cheese Galette

Happy Wednesdayย guys! Today’s recipe is Figs & Goat’s Cheese Galette – sweet and sour, the combination of ripe figs, goat’s cheese, buttery galette and a bit of honey is just perfect!

Figs & Goat's Cheese Galette

As you may know I love galettes and I’ve made quite a few different versions, most of them (if not all) savoury ones. So it was time to make a sweeter version of this amazing buttery beauties. I had these ripe figs and all I could think about was figs and goat’s cheese. I got myself some goat’s cheese and I decided I wanted a galette with figs. The rest of it you can see on the photos. ๐Ÿ™‚

Figs & Goat's Cheese Galette

The recipe is very simple. The only thing you need to do is the dough for the galette. You’ll only need flour, butter and yogurt, simple as that. I had the Figs & Goat’s Cheese Galette with some honey for a kick of sweetness. And this would especially help when the gigs are not so sweet (and they’re usually not, but are still delicious) :-).

By the way, I’ve also made a Fig Tart that is very similar to the galette. It was a great success so if you’d like, you can find the recipe here:

Leftover Rice Bites

Happy Sunday all! Recipe of the day is Leftover Rice Bites with Vegetables, Chicken & Cheese! Whatย anย amazing way to use up your leftover rice!

Leftover Rice Bites

As ย the title suggests these cute bites were made of some leftover rice and chicken. I only added some cheese and egg to hold them together. I cooked them in a muffin tray for about 20 minutes and they were all gone in 10. It’s funny how my kids refused to eat the rice left in the fridge but then they really enjoyed these bites. Bottom line is you need to be creative to feed your kids. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just joking! I don’t think I’m very creative. Anyway, this was a simple and delicious way to use up my leftover rice. You can make it from scratch too – all you need is some cooked rice with vegetables (I used carrots and peppers, thinly chopped), cheese and an egg.

Leftover Rice Bites

By the way, what’s your favourite Summer food/what is the recipe you love making during the hot and sunny days? I love making lots of fresh salads, but I’m trying to add something new every time, otherwise I’ll get bored, no matter how tasty the veggies are. Like, for example, last night I had a Caprese salad, but I use homemade zucchini pesto, which is also raw vegan and it tasted simply delicious. Comment below if you’re a salad person like me or prefer something else! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how to make the Leftover Rice Bites

Oven-Baked Banana & Peach French Toast

Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Oven-Baked Banana & Peach French Toast – fresh, Summery and absolutely delicious, that recipe makes the perfect breakfast/brunch recipe, and an easy one too!

Oven-Baked Banana & Peach French Tooast

I hope you’re guys enjoying your Summer/holiday so far and indulging in yummy Summer recipes too. I truly enjoy mine, especially the kids, they love spending time with their grandparents, eating lots of ice-cream and getting spoiled a lot. ๐Ÿ™‚ย But this is what Summer holiday is all about, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚

Back to my recipe now… Seriously, guys this is more than simple to make and at the same time tastes divine. Ripe bananas, peach, eggs and some bread is all you need. The rest is left to the oven. ย Yes, it is oven-baked but it tastes even better than fried french toast, in my opinion and is healthier. Well, I added some butter too which is not that healthy I guess but look at the amount of fruit in there. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used some fresh organic eggs and I think I’ve never used so beautiful eggs. The yolks were dark orange, it really felt they were a few hours old. So different to the eggs I usually use, unfortunately.

I served the french toast with honey, almond butter and some deseeded coconut. It tastes absolutely amazing, very rich and indulgent, more like a dessert than breakfast. But who won’t like dessert for breakfast? ๐Ÿ™‚

You can even serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, especially when it’s still hot and out of the oven. This is a totally different story but why not? ๐Ÿ™‚ I always look for ways to upgrade my recipes and make them even tastier (not always healthier though, I admit).

MM: Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips

As I mentioned in my previous post, I love sun-dried tomatoes and I always make sure I’ve got a jar of them in my kitchen cupboard.

I’ve been meaning to make this hummus for a long time. I’ve wanted to try a sun-dried tomato dip, so why not make a hummus then, right?

This was really simple – chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon, salt and of course the sun-dried tomatoes.

Sun-dried Tomato Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips

To go with it I had some wholemeal pita chips. They were perfectly crunchy and just couldn’t imagine this lovely dip with anything else.

I really should start making the pita chips more often, they are tastier, and I bet healthier than the shop-bought ones. All you need is pita bread, cut into chips. A bit of olive oil and some spices you fancy then 5-10 minutes in the oven and you’ve got a great movie snack! ๐Ÿ™‚

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

Happy Tuesday ally! Today’s recipe – Three Cheese Savoury Muffins or should I say bread – ย is simply amazing.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

I can’t tell you how delicious these cheesy buns turned! Yum, yum, yum…

The cheese literally exploded, imagine how much was in there. If you are cheese lover like me you’d love these, no doubt. There’s Parmesan cheese, Mozzarella & Feta. And the recipe is actually quite easy. I saw a similar recipe on the web and I really liked the idea, I haven’t used the same ingredients though, I kind of made my own muffins/buns. Really not sure how to call them – they’re baked in a muffin tray so that’s why I called them muffins but on the other side are like bread/buns. Anyhow, you get the point. And it is that they’re super delicious.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

I had barely finished taking photos of these beauties and they were all gone. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I helped too. In fact, I did a really good job finishing three of these Three Cheese Savoury Muffins. ๐Ÿ™‚

The dough is made of flour, yeast and milk. I should say, I am not that good in making dough for bread but this was really simple and turned out delicious. All you need to do is to combine the ingredients, work the dough and then wait for it to rise.

This is another delicious recipe using muffin tray. It makes me think I actually need to change mine, it’s been a good few years of use. In fact, I need a whole lots of baking equipment. Can’t wait to pick up some new and exciting stuff soon.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

I used dry parsley again. As I Mentioned in my previous post I’ve been using it very often. It’s all chopped up for you and ready to use. Plus, you’re not gonna need to worry how to store it for longer. On the other side though, fresh is best. ๐Ÿ™‚ But this is what works for me at the moment.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

The Three Cheese Savoury Muffins would be ideal snack for picnic. They really got me thinking about spring, sun and picnics. My daughter absolutely loves having picnics, so as my whole family and I can’t wait for the weather to get warm and sunny so we can enjoy a nice day out.

I should probably make a double batch of these then. ๐Ÿ™‚

They are perfect for sharing, as a side, as a snack, just one of these get together recipes. Make sure to have them when they’re nice and warm and the cheese is melted. Nothing better than a melted three cheese bun. Nom, nom, nom. ๐Ÿ™‚

Turkey Meatball Pizza

Happy Thursday! Here’s the recipe of the day – Turkey Meatball Pizza!

Turkey Meatball Pizza

I even made the dough from scratch! Not that it’s too difficult, it just takes a bit more time but it’s totally worth it. Of course, if you’re time-restraint, you can always use shop bought dough.

Turkey Meatball Pizza

So, more about the pizza now..I used Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, cheery tomatoes, sweet red peppers, black olives and a bit of spinach. I love both meatballs and pizza and the idea of having both in one mealย sounded really good. For the base, I simply used flour, yeast and olive oil, really simple, but again a bit time-consuming. I topped dit up with tomato sauce and then arranged all the other ingredients. It was quite loaded pizza, succulentย and cheesy, one of my favourite thing to have on movie night. ๐Ÿ™‚

And the weekend is just one day away so I might have to make this pizza again. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t know about you but my weekends go by too quickly, really quickly. It seems the anticipation is so long and thenย you wake up and it’s Monday again. There’s never enough time to relax, cook, meet with friends, watch movies and have fun with the kids. Seriously, we need an extra weekend day.

Turkey Meatball Pizza

Back to the food now…Feel free to add sauces you fancy. I usually add some garlic sauce and of course, lots of hot sauce. But to be honest, this pizza is quite juicy, so you might skip the sauce. But on the other side, meatballs with hot sauce are so tasty. ๐Ÿ™‚

Turkey Meatball Pizza

Here’s what you need to make the Turkey Meatball Pizza
