Singlemade: Homemade Nutella

Homemade Nutella

On the 5th of February it’s World Nutella Day and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by making my own Nutella. After several failed attempts I managed to make a hazelnut paste that’s not only healthier but also even better than Nutella. We haven’t bought any ever since! :-p On Pinterest …

Singlemade: Flammkuchen with bacon and onion

Flammkuchen with bacon and onion

I’ve been living in Germany for over two years now and I’ve realised that SInglemade doesn’t have a single German recipe on it. I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of German cuisine.

Singlemade: Homemade egg salad

Homemade egg salad

During my latter college years, I worked a job in the university’s cafeteria. I must have made hundreds if not thousands of sandwiches. It was the best job ever: my colleagues were the sweetest ladies in the world and I was allowed to take leftovers home. I made a lot of people happy with free …

Singlemade: Homemade mueslibars

Homemade muesli bars

The other day, I went shopping for groceries while hungry. Always a bad idea, I know, but I had convinced myself I wouldn’t give in to an unhealthy craving, so I bought a muesli bar. It took away the hunger but that doesn’t mean I enjoyed it. Already at the first bite, I thought to …
