Breakfast

pizza1

The winter has finally kicked in. The leaves have long been gone, the trees stand bare and the temperature keeps dropping steadily. The birds have started to immigrate to warmer climates and the snails appeared alongside with the very first raindrops.

Walking the dog everyday I have started to observe these little things that betray the coming and the passing of the seasons and for the first time in my life, a feeling of excitement envelopes my heart.

Its been a week though that I feel incredibly tired. The days come and go and all i want is to crawl in my bed, cuddle with the blankets and sleep. A pile of books on my nightstand is getting dusty.

Am I just tired? Or is it the winter blues?

Oh the winter blues.. You know them, dont you?
They have this greyish blue hue, feel like a soft woolen scarf and have the taste of marshmellows roasting on the fireplace. The sound of a scratched billy holiday record thats been turned one too many times and the smell like vanilla and christmas cinamon cupcakes. Now and then you can hear a little bell or maybe just the rain ticking on your window. You must listen carefully cause soon, the snow will fall and will dumb with it the world in a silent white coat.
Knitting socks, reading books, making cranberry marmelade..waking up early, going to be early..trying to catch the few rays of sun.. waiting patiently for another spring..
I really like the winter blues..
If only I had more energy..

So today, i decided to indulge in a delicious lunch.
I chopped vegetables, rolled out dough, cut little circles and boil some tomato basil sauce.
Sprinkled the cheese on the little dough circles and added veggies. Sprinkled with herbs and garlic and baked for 15 min at 200oC..
Healthy mini pizzas with vegetables and goatcheese for an energy boost.
And the winter blues get slightly tinted with red..

Although not a vegan myself, I have a lot of friends who are!

Therefor, it has always been clear that I needed to master a cupcake recipe so as to be able to treat my friends to yum yum .

So here it is! My basic recipe.

Let’s be honest. Most of us have some sort of addiction.

Whether its shopping, smoking, drinking coffee, there is always a little dark secret.

My mister is addicted to coffee. We are not talking about one cup a day… we are talking about multiple cups.. a few on the breakfast table, a few during lunchbreak and occasionally a cup or two in the evening.
Yet, mister also enjoys chocolate. Usually with his evening coffee. Its a little ritual for him.
A cup of freshly brewed coffee with a chunk of sweet organic chocolate…

So, i decided to give him some help towards the coffee detoxe.. (which he still aint aware he is going to go through)
My idea is to substitute a few coffee cups a day with delicious vegeterian chocolate cupcakestopped with coffee “buttercream”..

A cup of coffee for the morning? Or maybe a cup of coffee cake?

Can you resist?


I have to be honest, I could eat leftover pizza, potatochips or even chocolate icecream for breakfast..
I cant say I m faithful to scrambled eggs, nor croissants.. But I am trying to establish a breakfast routine.
Today i got some greek fat free yogurt and cereals and worked it up with bio honey from a farmer friend of ours and some cinammon…
But really..i need breakfast ideas!

What do you eat for breakfast?
