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 …

Singlemade: filo pastry apricot- ricotta cheese cake

Filo pastry ricotta-apricot pie

Going shopping means getting inspired so I often end up buying a lot more than what’s on my shopping list. :-p That’s how filo dough turned up in my shopping basket. I hadn’t used it in years, so I thought to myself: let’s get reacquainted. I had half a cup of ricotta left nearing the …

Irish soda bread

The Irish food culture revolves around potatoes. They even make potato bread. But they’re even better known for their soda bread! And as it turns out, it’s the easiest bread to make yourself, ever! Breadmaking doesn’t really match the strict Singlemade criteria. Even though the ingredients are simple enough, it’s a lot of work. Kneading …

Singlemade: shakshuka

Shakshuka

In the beginnings of my being active on Instagram, one of my single followers posted Shakshuka. I had never heard of it before and my interest was instantly peaked. Shame on me, because I soon discovered that it’s a hugely popular dish. The origins of the dish aren’t very clear (Tunisia, Yemen,…?), but what I …

Singlemade overnight oats

Overnight oats

Overnight oats, it’s a simple idea: add some ingredients to oatmeal and leave to set overnight. The next day you’ll have a tasty and healthy breakfast waiting for you. It won’t come as a surprise that every health blogger and influencer has their own recipe, usually with a bunch of chia seeds or other superfoods. …

Singlemade: homemade granola

Homemade granola

For a while now I’ve been known among family and friends for my ‘Minnemade’ granola. I’ve spent a long time finetuning the recipe and it’s been worked out to within grams and minutes. But the recipe has a lot of ingredients and takes a lot of work, so it isn’t single-proof. A poll on Instagram …

Singlemade: hangover fixer elixer

Hangover fixer elixir

It’s almost New Year’s Eve! That means toasting to the new year and maybe going a bit overboard with the drinks. The odds are that you’ll wake up on the 1st of January with a bit of nausea, a headache and a sensitivity to light… In other words: you’re hungover! I did some research on …

Pumpkin pie in a mug

It’s pumpkin season and Instagram is flooded with pictures of pumpkin pie for 4, 6 even up to 10 people. But a pumpkin pie recipe for 1 person is nowhere to be found. Time to make a change! 🙂 I have to admit I’d never really had pumpkin pie before, let alone made one. That’s …

Singlemade: Homemade pastries (with jam)

Homemade pastries (with jam)

Making your own puff pastry dough is not Singlemade’s thing. It takes a lot of work, concentration and just the right kind of butter… In other words, it’s something for professional bakers or the advanced amateur-patissier. Because we like things quick and easy, ready-made puff pastry is an ideal solution. You can find high quality …

Singlemade: mocha Nutella oats

Mocha-Nutella porridge

Today, October 1st 2017, is International Coffee Day! All across the globe events are being held to honour this black concoction and of course Singlemade does its part! I’m no barista, so I can’t educate you on water temperature, grinding, milk foam, pressure and all the things that come together to make a great cup …

Singlemade: summer crumble with peach and apricot

Summer crumble

Most people think of winter when they hear crumble, because of the apples and cinnamon it’s usually made with. Apple crumble is indeed a perfect winter treat, especially when served warm with a scoop of ice cream and a fluff of whipped cream. Delicious! It almost makes you long for winter… Almost, because nothing is …

Fat little banana pancakes

You should always have bananas in your pantry! They’re healthy, yummy and they can be used to replace sugar in many desserts. In desserts, use nice and ripe, yellow, or even brown bananas. I even let them go brown on purpose. To demonstrate my love for this piece of fruit, I’ve created the series ‘3x …
