strawberry chia jam

Strawberry Chia Jam

Bread, butter and jam makes me happy. At one event hosted by Tavola for Panasonic Bread Machine, I tasted a delicious homemade jam. The simple, fresh and pure taste of the jam made by Rebecca just lingered that I had to make one at home too. Three ingredients is all you need to make this jam at home. I must insist though that you get the freshest (organic) ingredients possible, because it does make a difference.  Cooking time The cooking time depends on the type fruit you choose. For the strawberries it took me around 6 minutes until the fruit came to a soft boil. Take it off the heat, add chia seeds and add sweetener of choice. Let it sit for a couple of minutes. You’re done! Chia Seeds A key ingredient on turning your cooked fruit to a spreadable consistency. Chia seeds is a super food that contains more calcium than milk, known to boost energy, stabilize blood sugar, aid digestion, and lower cholesterol. Flavors Make jam more interesting by adding fresh herbs, zest and vitality oils. For the second …

Banana biscoff bread recipe

Banana Biscoff Bread

Yes, I know another banana base recipe. We love them. It’s affordable and you can use it in a lot of things – smoothies, ice cream and pastries. I have a bottle of Crunchy Biscoff that’s going to expire in two months, the kids are over the biscoff cravings so I’m finding creative ways to use them. I have a lot of zebra ripe bananas, compared to other recipes we have here this recipe make use of more bananas which makes it yummier. I ladle about two cups of batter and add biscoff then top it off with banana slices and repeat till your pan is 3/4 full. Looking at the biscoff swirls made so happy, I imagined how pretty it would look when we slice the bread. But… The swirls were not obvious when I sliced the bread. Unless you look at each slice closely will you see the biscoff swirls, it will be a different story with nutella spread. Swirls gone but bread is moist and bursting with banana goodness. Tag me when you get …

Banana Bread with Streusel

I stare at four ripe bananas in our table and all I could think of is Banana Bread. My go to recipe for banana bread is from Simple Recipes which you can find here and my Daddy Nonong’s favorite (he can eat a whole loaf in one day). Every time they came home from Majuro for a vacation he would ask me to bake him some. As much as I adore my usual banana bread I wanted to try something new, add something to spice it up, to make it more interesting to my V (who insists on smothering nutella to his slice). A day has passed and in the table staring at me, 4 ripe bananas patiently waiting for me to turn them into something yummy. While nursing Chloe I googled “80breakfasts banana bread” because I remembered reading a post on banana bread. By the way 80breakfast is one of my favorite food blog! Her recipes never failed me and her posts would lead me to new exciting blogs as well. In her banana bread post she described this streusel as high on …
