A thousand and one years ago, before I had celiac disease, I used to bake cream cakes. I hadn’t realized, but when emptying the freezer I found two packets of buttered pastry. I don’t know how I got the idea of making custard, it was just natural. When the kids will see it, this will…Continue reading »
I like ready-made flour mixes. They’re safe to use if you run out of bread or rolls. This time I used the flour mix shown in the picture. I heartily recommend to try it. 😋 I’m not going to write a recipe because I followed the recipe on the bag exactly. It’s delicious, it doesn’t…Continue reading »
Long ago, before celiac disease, I used to make delicious pastries from this leavened dough every week. Sometimes I made cocoa rolls (by the way, it is called “cocoa snail” in my mother tongue), sometimes jam filled sweet rolls, sometimes sweet bread or sometimes I filled it with hazelnut cream. It was good with anything….Continue reading »
Usually I serve pancakes after a soup. When I make a soup that is more nourishing, then only a couple of pancakes are enough. You can also vary the pancakes with different fillings, but you can also do whad I did, I changed the batter. I have been making these pancakes for many years, to…Continue reading »
Poppy seed cake. I know this must be strange in many countries of the world. Here in Belgium a few years ago I could buy poppy seed only in the bird food section. Today you can find it on the cake ingredients shelf, but I’ve only seen it used as a decoration.For us, in Hungary,…Continue reading »

In Belgium, when guests came to visit us, they looked at us in amazement: “What is this before the main course”? “Soup,” we said. They had never had anything like it before. It was the same with our…Continue reading »
I’d like to make it clear beforehand that I’m not a pastry chef, so I am only sharing my own experience. 😊 Many people say they can’t bake a sponge cake. The oven is not right, the dough overbakes, it stays raw in the middle, it collapses, and so on. I was that person for…Continue reading »
16 years ago, when we moved to Belgium, we found it strange that there was practically no soup like we had in Hungary. Over time we got used to their soups. I think I have learned to make it over the years. Although it couldn’t be simpler: they cook the vegetables, blend them, salt and…Continue reading »
I learned a lot from my grandmother. 💗 3 years ago I thought that I have to throw all that knowledge away, as we had to reform our whole lives because of celiac disease, lactose intolerance and allergies. Fortunately, that didn’t happen. 😊 I’ve had many helpers to learn from over the years, I’ve spent…Continue reading »
We’ve been out and about 🚗, experimenting a lot, doing new things. Coming soon with naturally gluten and lactose free goodies. Look at, my daughter’s birthday cake! 💖🎂🍰 I baked a plum pie using my own plums and apple strudel too. 🙂 Soups were also on the menu, like the ham and chicory soup. 🍲Until…Continue reading »
