Home made burgers buns (vegan)

--> recette en français

    A year ago, almost to the day, I published the recipe of pink burgers with beetroot buns and patties (here). I had wanted to make some again since but with buns more sweet and moist like brioche and less bread because they're my favorite. So I made a new burger recipe that I'll publish by the end of the week.

   I don't often take time to make bakery, however I love it, I like to knead the dough for bread, brioche and else and watch it rise slowly like magic. I don't have a food processor so I do everything by hand but I like this step I find relaxing like those little foam balls you knead inside of your palm to destress yourself.  And after all, this is not so long, you just have to think about the rise time ahead.

Apple pie cinnamon porridge / oatmeal

--> recette en français

   Today is the World Porridge Day, this event is quite recent and was created in 2009 by the charity Mary's Meals  based in Scotland in order to raise funds to help starving children in developing countries.

   To that occasion, I made a new seasonal porridge/oatmeal recipe, with cooked and raw apple and spices for a filling and healthy breakfast to face those future Winter cold days.

Raspberry, coconut, speculoos vegan popsicles

--> recette en français

   Well, it's seem that this year, Summer has decided to take some liberties, at least on the Northern part of France and maybe Europe. It's either a heat wave or rain and "cold" weather, hard to know what to where or to plan anything, especially when you're working outside. I have had a whole bunch of different clothes and shoes just "in case of" in the trunk of my car at work.

   Anyway, I decided to share this recipe of popsicles because, hey, Summer is going to come back anytime! Since I've been back from Amsterdam and the delicious speculoos cookies I brought back, I often prepare a dessert with this coconut yogurt, fresh raspberries and speculoos cookies, I don't know where that association came from but I love it! So I thought, why not make some popsicles with these ingredients 😉

Avocado cucumber apple cold soup

--> recette en français

   If you've been following the blog for quite some time, you may have noticed that I love soup, I repeat it each time I publish a soup recipe. Whether warm and comfy in Winter or fresh and light in Summer, it's a good way to stay hydrated and eat veggies, legumes or even cereals in a simple manner.

   Lately, we've been brainstorming about what to do with our huge numerous cucumbers we have at work with my colleagues apart from tzatziki and salads and we talked about cold soups. One of them made a cold cream with cucumber and some "kid cheese" as I like to call it, I don't know if it exists outside of France but to me and cheese amateurs, it's not really cheese, it's something chewy wrapped into individuals packs. Anyway,  thought about what to use instead and I thought about avocado to bring some creamy texture.

Quinoa flakes cookies (vegan, gluten free)

--> recette en français

    Long time I didn't published a new recipe here, I'm very sorry about that, I've been publishing on the French version but I've been doing long hours at my current job and I'm exhausted - or very busy with groceries, cleaning, cooking meals and taking care of Jesse, my dog - on my days off.

   I'll try to get back on track and publish the seasonal recipes I've published in French for the past weeks.

   About the recipe, I made these cookies last May, I love cookies as you can see on the blog and when I bought these quinoa flakes, I knew I wanted to bake them in a dessert and first went for cookies in order to make another recipe with them later on.
