Breakfast, the day’s first meal, is vital because it gives the body energy and nutrients to start the day. The word “breakfast” comes from the Old English phrase “brekefaste,” which means “to break the fast” – in other words, to eat after a period of not eating (usually during sleep).
We have some great recipes for delicious and healthy dishes to enjoy in the morning.

 

Snacks, small portions of food eaten between meals, are typically quick and easy to prepare. They are often portable, so they can be eaten on the go to satisfy hunger or as a treat. Check out our delicious snacks.

 

A salad is a dish made up of a mixture of ingredients, served with a dressing cold or at room temperature. The word “salad” comes from the Latin word “sal,” which means “salt,” as salt was often added to leafy greens to improve their flavour.
We love salads so you will find various ones here.

 

An appetizer is a small, light dish served before a meal to stimulate the appetite. Examples of appetizers include dips, spreads, soups, salads, and small sandwiches. In this section, you will find recipes that couldn’t go to other categories, like soups or salads.

 

A soup is a dish that combines ingredients such as vegetables, proteins, and broth and heating them until they are cooked. There are many types of soups: clear, cream, broth-based etc. They are often served hot, but you will find at least one cold soup here!

 

Pasta is made from wheat or other grains, mixed with water or eggs and formed into various shapes. It would be best if you cooked pasta al dente (literally meaning from the Italian language “to the tooth,” which translates into “firm but not crunchy with a slight chew”). And then you should serve it with a delicious sauce. Check out some of our favourite ones.

 

A main course is the largest dish eaten during a meal. It typically consists of proteins: meat, fish, or plant-based, along with vegetables and rice or potatoes. Usually, it comes after a starter: soup, salad or another small appetizer. Please check out some of our favourite main courses.

 

Dessert is a course that typically comes at the end of a meal to conclude on a sweet note. It typically consists of sweet foods and beverages, like cakes, ice cream, fruit, or coffee. We have a serious sweet tooth and love desserts, although we are trying to make them healthier, so please check our variety.

 

Biscuits, or cookies, are small, usually flat or hemispherical cakes. The basic ingredients to make them usually include flour, butter and sugar. However, you can use many flour variations, replace sugar with other sweeteners and butter with plant-based fats or even omit it entirely. Everything depends on the flavour you would like to achieve and if you would like to adjust them to a specific diet. We love traditional biscuits but always look for healthier versions too.

 

A cake is a sweet dish typically made from flour, sugar, and eggs and baked in an oven. Apart from using variations or even replacements of the three main ingredients, you can also add many other ones: fruit, chocolate, nuts, cream – the options are countless! Please check out the recipes for our favourite cakes.

 

A drink is a liquid consumed for refreshment or nourishment. In this section, you will find mainly drinks that provide nutrients to the body and, because of it, can accompany or even replace a meal, e.g. breakfast.

 

Bread is made from flour, water and a rising agent like leaven, yeast or soda. It is typically shaped into loaves and baked. Ideally, it has a crusty exterior and a soft interior. Bread is among the world’s most popular and loved food products, so we also have some recipes here.

 

Other recipes – in this section, there are recipes for food that don’t fit any other specific category. So you will find here sauces, jams, etc.
