:: From Fall to Winter ::







I`ve just realized that it`s been a month since my last post. I have so many things on my plate, that it`s hard to juggle between everything. In the end, it happens that I don`t do them as good as I would wish for and then I`m dissapointed. Anyhow, last month was hectic. First I was sick, then I had some problems with my teeth, then it was already time to move from Celje to Ljubljana and that was quite a project especially since Jaka was in hospital at that time (he`s ok, still recovering, but feeling much better), which means that I had to pack and move boxes mostly by myself + I had help from the family which was life saving <3 (thanks everyone) + I had to attend a class at the uni, write a paper and on Tuesday I have an exam + things at work havent been normal for a while. So, obviously all my side projects that I love to do, cuz they`re more of a creative nature have to wait for better times. I haven`t even went for a run for freakin` two months. Ahh... but things will change! Haha, ok, and inbetween all this things I had a weekend in Berlin with my international "family" which was superfantastic! (I still love the city and still want to move there!). I`ll make a short photo report, cuz yet again, I didn`t have much time to capture the city. I was more focused on my friends and partying. :)

Oh, if anyone wants to meet in Ljubljana for a coffee/lunch/hanging out/partying/hiking or whatever really, I`d be more then happy if you contact me. ;) 

xo, m.

:: How to make your day, when you`re sick at home? Make a smoothie, homemade nutella and some Buckwheat pancakes (gluten free) ::


Being sick at home is the worst. I get bored so fast, even though I have a bad version of a headache. So, I`ve slept for two days, which was actually very good for me and yesterday, I was already feeling a bit better, so the only logical thing was to spoil myself with something sweet. :)
But, let`s go step by step.. In the morning it was time to enjoy the morning sun, check out new issues of  the magazines and have a great healthy portion of a green smoothie. Yum! :)


 Later in the day, I felt I need some energy + I was craving for something sweet, but I had nothing at
home and since I was sick I couldn`t go to the store, so it was time for plan B. I`ve checked what I have from the ingridients at home and remembered that I saw a recipe for homemade nutella at Urška`s blog, the girl I wrote about a few days ago (check here). Ha, so I had the nutella, but that was not enough, I needed something to eat it with, so the only logical thing was to make buckwheat pancakes. It was the first time I used buckwheat flour and I loved it. I found the recipe over at DB`s blog and the pancakes were delicious! That man knows how to cook! ;)


1. GREEN SMOOTHIE:

~ banana ~
 ~ pineapple ~
~ coconut/rice milk ~
~ handful of spinach ~
  
Blend it & enjoy it!  ;)


2. HOMEMADE NUTELLA

Mix together in a pan:
  • 2 large spoons of coconut oil
  • 2-3 large spoons of cacao
  • 1/2 cup of hazelnut spread
How to make hazelnut spread? 
Put a spoon of coconut oil in a pan, add hazelnuts and fry it until it smells good. Then mix them in a blender, together with dates that were soaked in the water for a while, almond milk, vanilla pod and a bit of a sweetener (maple syrup, honey..).

 .. and about the quantities, play a bit, add more of what you like, add some things, whatever. :) I for example didn`t had almond milk, so I`ve used the normal one and I used an extra spoon of cacao + I`ve added one vanilla sugar and I mixed the whole hazelnut spread cuz otherwise I know I wouldnt use it. 


3. BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES

  • (3-4 really big pancakes, or 6 normal size)
  • 1 egg
  • 100g buckwheat flour (gluten free)
  • 2 dcl goat`s milk (I only had normal(cow) one )
  • 1 dcl of mineral water
  • 1 full spoon of tapioca flour (I only had rice flour, so I used it instead of tapioca f.)
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of brown cane sugar
  • a piece of coconut butter 
  • You can also add some cinnamon or grate lemon peel

Whisk the egg, add milk and both flours. Mix it well, so you will get a smooth mass, add a pinch of salt and sugar and in the end, just to make the mass a bit softer, add the mineral water.
Heat up the pan and grease it, like you would wipe it with the coconut butter. Than, put a scoop of mass in a hot pan, turn it around after a while, so it will be done on both sides.
More or less, that`s it. I guess you baked pancakes before, so you know the drill. ;) 


Enjoy it! ;)
Hugs, Maja
