Strawberry Phirni, Indian rice dessert (vegan and dairy free option)

--> recette en français

    Today, this is a new Indian recipe I'm offering you to try.  I love Indian cuisine so when Angélique chose this theme for the new edition of a food challenge I take part to from time to time, I jumped on the occasion. 

   For once, I hesitated long between savory and sweet recipes and then, while surfing on Pinterest - yes, again! - I stumbled upon a few sweet recipes and I finally chose to go for one that looked intriguing and propose a vegan version of the Phirni. After having discovered the Mango Kulfi recipe last year, I'm very happy of this new yummy food discovery.

Scottish Tattie potato scones

--> recette en français

     Today, I'll share a new recipe of scones with you. A Scottish specialty called "Tattie Scones", they may be familiar to you if you have British origins. These ones have nothing to do with the British little "breads" made of flour, butter and eggs and sometimes raisins. Their ingredients are very similar to the Lefse, Norwegian potato crêpes like that. They only require potato, flour and plant-based margarine (or butter possibly), so they're vegan! 

   I prepared these Tattie Scones for a food challenge I'm taking part to for the first time. The rules are : each edition, the food blogger that got the most votes for his/her recipe is named new organizer and pick a new theme. Each participant is linked to another one after a draw and each one has to assign a secret ingredient to his/her "partner" to make things a little more difficult.

Red fruit, apple and cinnamon sweet scrambled eggs or omelette

--> recette en français

   A few months ago already, I saw a sweet omelette recipe went by on Pinterest and it really intrigued me but I wasn't more curious than that. You may have noticed it - and as I said it in my 3 year-anniversary blog post - I've been "veganizing" my cooking and diet lately. I used to love eggs - I could eat some 2 or 3 times a week, fried eggs, soft-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs - I think I got bored and kind of stopped to buying eggs just like that and it's a good thing because I don't have to force myself to quit eating them even if I still buy some from time to time to use in some pastries - but always organic or free-range of course.

   I don't remember why I thought again about that recipe but I thought that it the time to try it with the beginning of the red fruit season and the end of the apples and that if it was a tasty success I would share it with you. I've never been a fan of omelettes so I went for scrambled eggs instead, so you can enjoy this recipe for breakfast, as a dessert or a snack. And if you're watching your cholesterol, you can only use egg whites of course!

Individual strawberry and soft goat cheesecakes in a jar { raw, gluten free }

--> recette en français

   I don't know how are the things where you live but in France, the strawberry season is well settled and we can enjoy different kind of fruit, more or less sweet, more or less acid, a really little piece of heaven in the mouth.

   If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen the toasts I made last week with an association I tried for the first time : soft goat cheese and strawberries and I loved it! Have you ever tasted it?

{ Cocktail } Mango mojito

--> recette en français

    Until recently, I only wanted to have soups, comfort dishes or warm cups of tea as the Spring seemed to not really want to settle over France for the past weeks. After all, this cocktail is just perfect now that Spring seems ready to settle for good.

Vanilla and chocolate spiced surprise mini cakes for the 3 years old of the blog (gluten free, dairy free, vegan)

--> recette en français

    As I was saying yesterday in my article dedicated to the 3 years anniversary of the blog, I wanted to share a recipe easy to do, a little original and that can me enjoyed by everyone whether you are gluten intolerant, dairy intolerant or vegan.

   I had already baked a "hidden cake" as a large cake with wheat flour, eggs and dairy but hadn't published the recipe and the photos as it sometimes happens for varied reasons.  

   Anyway, nothing genius in this recipe apart from the surprise hiding in the cake that is revealed when cut in half, it can be another shape and or another color, flavor...

{ Birthday } The blog is celebrating its 3 years old!

--> in French here.

    Three years ago, when I was back to being a student on my way to a new field job, I was making a break  during my rewiews and homework session and started this blog.

   It has since evolved, esthetically - even if it is not the most accomplished to my opinion but I'm lacking some knowledge into this field - but also concerning the type of recipes, how I introduce them and the quality of the photos - at least, most of the time and when I'm inspired - go and have a look at the first recipes' photos and you'll laugh...
