    When in lockdown

    We all know that the situation turned almost 180 degrees in the last months. Nothing is the same and we don’t have the certainty that it will be the same as before again. We had to change our habits, our mentality and social life. For some of us this wasn’t that hard and for some it seemed or it still seems impossible.  The fact that we don’t know for how long this “situation” will last is one hell of a challenge. Some of us lost their jobs, some of us lost their business and so many have to readapt their working style to the new situation. Everywhere you turn there…

    Homemade apple sauce

    I love apple recipes. And many need one special ingredient to give a stronger flavor and moisture to the cake. Today I wrote about one of these ingredients and how you can prepare it easily at home. The best part is that you can have the apple sauce in many ways. I like to have it as brunch too. It’s absolutely delicious with biscuits or even with oats. If you are an oat lover, then you will definitely enjoy it over your over-night oats as well. Sometimes I eat it with pancakes too. Let’s face it: the flavor of apples and cinnamon can go well with almost everything. What you…

    Lemon bread

    A very soft and delicious lemon bread… Preparation time: 10-15 minutes Baking time: 45 minutes Ingredients: 1 lemon (for juice and peel) 4 eggs 150 gr of sugar 12 grams of baking powder 1 tbs oil 2 tbs milk 200 grams of flour (with or without gluten) How to do it: First of all, we have to separate the eggs into yolks and white eggs. This is actually more of a Romanian thing. Why? Because you save time in wiping just the white part with the sugar, instead of wiping the whole egg. Also, it gives a more fluffy texture to the cake. You can achieve the same “fluffiness” by…

    Things that you should try to do alone

    Nowadays being an independent woman is not that scary as it seemed to be. Every movie or show presents a character like this and we all drool to achieve that level of confidence. Well there are some baby steps through that direction and I really think everyone can give it a try. I tried them and I liked them. I wouldn’t  recommend something that I didn’t try, don’t worry. We shouldn’t be afraid to do things on our own and we shouldn’t wait for a life-changing experience to do something solo as well.    Here are some things that I recommend you to do alone: 1. Eat at a restaurant I…

    3 Simple vodka cocktails

    Few years ago I gave my boyfriend a cocktail set as a Christmas gift. He was into preparing cocktails and it seemed a good idea. Now, I am the one preparing cocktails and he is just assisting me. I am not a master and I still drop things when I prepare them but I am on my way to get better. I promise. I practice every time with friends coming over or on some solo weekends after a hard week (it’s not that depressing as it sounds). I like it a lot and sometimes I try new flavors too. This time I will share with you some basic vodka cocktails…

    Banana oat cookies

    This recipe is one of the easiest that I know and it requires only two ingredients. This cookies are delicious despite the fact they are so simple to be made. Above these, they are pretty healthy too. I used to eat a lot of them when I was keeping my fitness diet (ohooo…long time ago… now chocolate day and night). Now I have them for breakfast or when I just want something sweet and easy to bake. So this is it: no sugar, no butter, no eggs, no flour and obviously no trouble. Prepare 2 bananas and a cup of oats (100 grams) and check this video out: https://youtu.be/UDBcp_-GjCw

    To plant or not to plant

    I posted many times on my Instagram photos with my plant buddies from my little studio and the audience was great. I had no idea that I have so many plant lovers through my friends and followers. To be honest, I haven’t been a plant lover since long ago. My mom was though. As I grew up I was always noticing her taking care of her plants and being proud of how pretty they are but… I wasn’t really interested in them. We were just… flat mates. Previous Next I have many plants now and I grew up with them and learned how to take care of them but every…

    Road trip in Georgia

    Georgia was a curiosity for me for a while and together with my boyfriend we decided this to be our first road trip together. I found easy to write about it since we had an amazing time and the places that we’ve visited are absolutely great. To be honest, we didn’t really know what to expect. None of our friends have visited Georgia before to advise us about it. All we knew from the beginning was that Georgians are driving like crazy and that their food is delicious. Now, after we’ve been there, I can totally relate to that. It’s absolutely true and you definitely shouldn’t question these two statements.…
