DIY string art

Two years ago I saw an amazing sign and wanted to have the same. Yeah I know – two years 馃槮 Well it took me this long but I finally did it. 


I used some old window – needed just the frame so I broke the glass 馃槤馃槣 you can can cut some plywood and nail it to the frame.

I cut the word ‘dream’ Out of paper and place it on the plywood. Than nails – I think I used 500 or so. 


Now the most creative part – coil the nails with  colorful strings. 

Looks absolutely amazing if you ask me 馃槈

Sourdough starter simpler than you think :)

I had to change my diet 馃槮 Well It’s not sad news – I will be eating healthier but new diet means pretty much I need to avoid almost all already prepared food and cook everything for myself. I cannot eat anything that contains sugar, yeast, vinegar or wheat flour. 

So I decided I will bake my own bread but with sourdough starter – NO YEAST
How to make a sourdough starter? Easy peasy, check the instructions below 馃檪

  1. Day One

Scald a big glass jar – 1l / 0,5l capacity. Mix well just two ingredients and put them into the jar:

  • 125 ml cup rye flour
  • 125 ml warm filtered water

Cover it with linen tea towel, put in a warm place. I usually do that in the morning, in the evening I stir the dough again. 


      2. Day Two

In the morning I add to the jar the same amount of the flour and water as yesterday and mix it Well. Set aside. Stir again in the evening or earlier it the dough is running away from the jar. 馃槈


      3. Day Three

Feed the dough same way as on the day two. After three hours it’s ready for baking! 馃檪 Notice: only when there are air bubbles in!

Orange pie – super healthy and anti-cancer?!

It is not an ordinary, simple pie. It is super healthy and suppose to help preventing or fighting cancer. 

In this recipe you use whole oranges with peel which gives bitter taste to the pie. But we use the peel for a reason – the flavonoids in orange peel have the potential to inhibit the RLIP76 protein, which is linked to cancer and obesity.

More on that topic at the link.

Ingredients:

  • 3 small oranges (organic as we do not peel them)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (can be coconut oil also)
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 80g xylitol
  • 200g almond flour
  • 50g banana flour
  • 4 tbsp shredded coconut 
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda 

Step 1 

Cook the oranges till they’re soft – it took around 1,5 hour in my case. 

Step 2

Blend the oranges and mix them with all the ingredients. 

Step 3

Grease the baking tray with olive oil or coconut oil. Bake for about 35 minutes, 180 degrees C. 

Step 4 

Decorate with almond flakes, fruits, etc.
