Whole Grain Waffles with Coffee & Cardamom Ganache

Are you aware of what happens when in your kitchen appears a waffle maker? No? I am here to tell you it is not good. Really. The first thing you will do, you  take any old google recipe and immediately try it out. You will be disappointed, because the waffles turn out disgusting, they taste like a piece of rubber. Then you try again, and again, and again. Now you are devastated and you want to throw that stupid waffle maker out of your sight. Then approximately in a month, when you have calmed down, you become obsessed with an idea of finding a perfect recipe. This is war. 

A little bit dramatic and exaggerated? Yes. But it is a true story. And I just had to vent my feelings. 

Five waffle recipes in a week. Six waffle breakfasts in a week. And I don't wanna have another piece of waffle on my plate for the next month, again! But my efforts are rewarded. I won the war. I found that very one recipe! And I'm happy about it even though I can not look at waffles any more. Joking.

Buckwheat Poppy Seed Pancakes with Blueberries (GF & SF)

Buckwheat Poppy Seed Pancakes with Blueberries (gluen and sugar free)

I did it... I have finally passed all summer term examinations! To say that I am happy is to say nothing! Yesterday I just spent the whole day in bed, sleeping after a farewell party, reading a book in between and planning out summer holidays.  About that, in two weeks I am leaving for Germany for a month! I am so so so excited. I wanted to spend summer holidays somewhere far from home to distract the mind, so I hope this journey will be a bit of change for me. I am gonna stay in Dresden, though I really want to travel the country a lot. And also I thought about spending a few days in Prague. So, if some of you feel like sharing a cup of coffee with me, it would be a pleasure!

I made these pancakes something like a week ago, when I was preparing for examinations. These are a great healthy, nutritious and gluten-free breakfast. I have cooked with buckwheat flour for the first time and I have to say that the nutty taste of buckwheat is just amazing! I am already experimenting with buckwheat in different recipes and hope to share the results in the upcoming posts.

Black Forest Cake Light (Sugar Free) and a Blog Birthday

Black Forest Cake Light (Sugar Free)

This is a Sweet Blog turns ONE today! First blog birthday! First anniversary! 

I couldn't even imagine that this blog would take such a significant part of my life. As a matter of fact, I couldn't imagine that I could have a blog at all! Since I can remember my passion for cooking, I have always been reading other food blogs and I always thought that it would be so nice one day to have my own. However, I have never taken it seriously and it seemed to be just another unrealisable dream.

Gluten & Sugar - Free Healthy Orange Cheesecake

Gluten & Sugar - Free Healthy Orange Cheesecake
Gluten & Sugar - Free Healthy Orange Cheesecake

I have  made this cheesecake for the very first time in the beginning of May. Since than I've made it three more times, almost every weekend. And all this time I have been wanting to share the recipe with you so badly! 

The first time  I made this cheesecake, it was absolutely spontaneous. I happen to have 2 kg of the really good quality farmer cheese . Me + 2 kg of farmer cheese = baking.  I decided it must be a cheesecake, because actually I had been craving  after it for some time back than. So, when I had an opportunity to bake a lighter version, I didn't have to think twice. There was just a tiny problem - I was left without my camera for the whole week, so obviously no pictures - no post. However, it may have been even for the better, since I have improved the recipe afterwards.

I am not gonna lie, it was a wild month.  Every time I had made a cheesecake, there always were some obstacles in the way to hinder me from sharing the recipe. At first, I didn't have camera, then came an examination week, right after it - my birthday, the celebration of which have dragged on for the whole week! Yeah, now I am 20, by the way!

During all May this cheesecake has been my true saviour and a great friend. It is a perfect snack when I crave for something sweet, though it is flourless and sugar-free! I hope you will fall in love with it like I did. 

P.S. Do you also feel like a criminal when you pick the flowers in the public place?

Date Sweetened Oatmeal Cookies

Date Sweetened Oatmeal Cookies & Spring Glory

"It's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
We've come a long way from where we began
Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Damn, who knew?
All the planes we flew
Good things we've been through
That I'll be standing right here talking to you
'Bout another path
I know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn't last
Had to switch up
Look at things different see the bigger picture
Those were the days
Hard work forever pays
Now I see you in a better place"

"See You Again" - Wiz Khalifa

Peanut Butter & Date Creamy Hot Cocoa

Tomorrow I am having my last but one exam. But instead of reading up for examinations I am writing this post (it will be short today)). Everyone who celebrate today is busy with setting the table, cooking a Christmas meal and making the last preparations. So, I just want you to take a break for a few minutes and drink a cup of hot cocoa, because what is a winter holiday without a warming drink!)) Especially when it is sugar-free!

And of course I am writing today, because I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas! Let it be full of peace, happiness and love!

Frozen Banana Coffee Ice Cream {vegan, personal fav}

Frozen Banana Coffee Ice Cream {vegan, personal fav} This is a sweet blog

When it starts to rain cats and dogs everyday ice cream season is over. At least for me. But I just have to share this recipe with you. I've made it a couple weeks ago, when it was summer outside with its terrible heat, and the only thing I could make without turning the oven was this amazing, healthy, vegan, creamy coffee ice cream. Trust me, it is the most healthiest ice cream ever! Say NO to sugar, eggs, milk and heavy cream. Say YES to frozen bananas!

Banana Tropicana Peanut Butter Granola

banana tropicana tropical granola healthy breakfast recipe

Oh, well...It's a shame that I still haven't shown you the recipe of this mega awesome Banana Granola! Granola is that kind of thing I can't live without. I can have it for breakfast only 1 or 2 times a week, sometimes I don't eat it for weeks at all. But you will always  find a jar of granola on my kitchen.)

Berry Tart (sugar free!)

summer berry tart sugar free recipe
This day has finally come! I've finished all of my exams. And it means that I am totally free till the end of summer. Two. TWo. TWO!!! months of long wished holiday!

The past two months were crazy. Sleepless nights, exhausting days. I felt that I could no more distinguish them.  I lived 24/7. So yeah...I can not describe you with the words my feelings right now. You just had to see me a few hours ago. You know, when neurosis is replaced by laughter, then access of tenderness....and laughter again...
