Recipe: Wheat-free

Anne’s shrimp and mango salad

We had some friends over today and I needed something bright and yummy (and without gluten) to be served on this sunny day. I was browsing my to-do(-again) lists, and opted for a refreshing mango and shrimp salad that I’ve made before. It’s light, it’s easy, and it’s quite an eye-catcher, so perfect for a summer get-together. As I suspected, …

Gluten-free buckwheat cookies recipe

Are you on Pinterest? I am, with a nice number followers (thank you, all!) and various “boards”. One of my boards is called buckwheat recipes, and I’ve been pinning various recipes there utilising this non-grain/pseudo-grain. Despite the name, you see, buckwheat is not a grass, but a plant related to sorrel and rhubarb. During the recent months I’ve noticed that this …

Beetroot Brownies (wheat-free, possibly gluten-free)

Photo by Juta Kübarsepp for the March 2014 issue of Kodu ja Aed magazine.  March. While in some far away corners this means new season’s rhubarb and spring greens, then here in far North it’s time to dig out the last of the last season’s root vegetables and do something nice with them. Beetroot is one of my favourites (see …

However, out of season – which depending on your location could be from October till May, like here in Estonia – fresh vegetables aren’t always the best choice. That’s a message Jamie Oliver is advocating in his latest TV series, Save with Jamie …

Sauerkraut with pork and barley (Mulgi kapsad)

Mulgi kapsad aka mulgikapsad is a traditional dish from Southern Estonia, consisting of pork, sauerkraut and barley (either pearl barley or barley groats). It doesn’t sound much – but it’s another one of those dishes that tastes much more and better that you’d imagine when looking at the (short and rather bland) list of ingredients. It’s also cheap, filling and …

The 2-ingredient banana pancakes

First there were the 3-ingredient cookies, consisting of bananas, oats and raisins. Now we’re making 2-ingredient pancakes, consisting of bananas and eggs 🙂 I discovered the recipe in the summer, when it appeared on my friend Liina’s blog, and since then we’ve made them quite a few times – mostly when we have over-ripe bananas on the counter, or simply …

The Easiest Homemade Cheese Crisp Recipe Ever (gluten-free and low-carb)

I originally blogged about these baked cheese crackers back in early December 2007.  Back then I was teaching at the university during day-time and working as an intern at a restaurant in the evenings. Didn’t have much time – or need – to cook at home, so these delicious and exceptionally easy cheese crisps were perfect as a late-night nibble. Now, more …

To keep you warm in those cold days: mulled apple juice (hot cider)

Photo by Juta Kübarsepp for the January 2014 issue of Kodu ja Aed magazine (I made the drink and modelled for the photo :)) Do you love mulled wine or glögg or vin chaud or Glühwein? I do. However, once Christmas is behind us, I don’t fancy red wine based mulled drinks – they simply feel too, well, Christmassy. However, …
