For the final day of the easter treats, I made this golden egg. What is easter without an egg. Most traditional breads have coloured eggs placed in the braids of the breads. And they also make chocolates in egg shape. Some chocolates are made so huge and they are filled with more chocolates so that when you break the egg, the treats flow out. I just wanted to keep this simple.
For the second day, here is one more easy breezy dessert you can put together in around fifteen minutes. I am not going for any traditional recipes this week, but am just giving you some good ideas for any party you will be doing for easter or some other occasion. Ever since I bought a pack of dried rose petals from Delhi, I have been using it to top my desserts. My daughter loves it and being the only one who is trying out the desserts, I am quite happy to add the rose petals on them. They look so good and tastes great too.
Here comes the next week of Blogging Marathon and I have chosen Easter treats as the theme. At first I was planning for some breads, but I couldn’t make them ahead and on the day of posting, I didn’t want to go for any complicated recipe. When I was browsing through recipes for easter desserts, they are mostly chocolates and I came up with one of my own. I put this together with all the ingredients from my pantry. You can go for any filling you like as this is so versatile.
So many of you were asking me about the meal plan I follow for my paleo diet. So I tried putting together some dishes so that it would be helpful for those who are new to paleo. These dishes are totally vegetable based and doesn’t even include eggs.
This cream cheese platter along with onions and cucumber makes a great snack option for your diet or you can serve it as a side dish for your lunch or dinner. However you serve it, it is so delicious and I am sure you will go for a second helping. I could just live off with this plate for weeks. I served it along with oven roasted veggies and pumpkin soup for my lunch.
This soup is so flavourful as the pumpkin pieces are roasted in oven before making the soup. It will make a super filling appetizer to any meal. Or just have it for your evening 3 PM hunger pang, or serve it up for dinner. I make it once in a while when I feel very hungry. This is part of the paleo meal plan #1 I have posted. I also served Oven Roasted Veggies and Cream cheese platter along with this.
I make this for lunch every alternate day so that I don’t get bored of the cauliflower rice. I even add the roasted veggies to cauliflower rice to make it more interesting. Today I will share with you the easiest way of making this. You just need to slice up the veggies, add the spices and ghee, give a nice mix and bake in oven till done. Doesn’t it sound easy? It is also so delicious and can be put together easily enough.
When I was searching for an authentic bread recipe from Sweden, I came across these beautiful cinnamon rolls. The shaping was so unique, I immediately bookmarked that recipe. The dough is really easy to put together and it is flavoured with cardamom. And the filling is made with butter, sugar and cinnamon. When baked, the aroma that filled the house was awesome. And the rolls were so soft and had a perfect texture.
The next Swedish bread I made last week is the saffron bun. I am sure many of you would be familiar with this saffron bun. Saffron is added while kneading the dough and it gives an amazing colour to the final buns. These buns are made for Swedish Christmas time St Lucia feast on December 13th. Made in the shape of S, they are also studded with raisins.
