CACAO & HAZELNUT BALLS

These balls are RAW, VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, REFINED SUGAR FREE Snacking is a healthy habit: it keeps your energy level high and the hunger under control. I normally snack on fruit, but once in a while I like to switch to something sweet but guilt free. I love hazelnut and cacao, but I…

DAIRY FREE CHERRIES & COCONUT CLAFOUTIS

DAIRY FREE HOMEMADE GNOCCHI

Gnocchi remind me of only one person: my caring and loving grandma. When I was a child we always prepared gnocchi together, she was so quick and they were sooooo delicious.

TARTA DE SANTIAGO

I have discovered this cake last June while walking along the Camino de Santiago, in the north of Spain. It’s an ancient galizian recipe, made with a few and simple ingredients, so precious that the EU gave it the PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status. A little treasure to be preserved. And it’s naturally dairy and…
