Healthy recipe: Homemade cereal / Domaca mesanica kosmicev



Cereal. Today's post will not be a recipe but more of an idea. I remember Saturday mornings at the supermarket. How old? I do not know, a kid. A kid who is eager to throw the chocolate cereals  in the shopping cart. And banana  yogurt. Plus  mortadella with olives, mayonnaise and salad ....for sandwich of course. At evenings, in front of TV I loved eating banana yogurt, in which I stuffed (max, really as much as it was possible) corn flakes that were sprinkled with chocolate. Then I waited 10 minutes so the flakes were totally soft. I prepared  3 cups of yogurt like this .. well, at least two. Damn ... Best unique thing ever. That only I ate. Ahhhh, but today ... eh, eh, that's not healthy. Today, I don't eat chocolate flakes but ordinary oatmeal. Anyone can make a  ​​much healthier mix  of cereals at home, then those bought ones are, full of sugar. Just add nuts, raisins, flax seed, banana / coconut chips  to oatmeal / spelt cereals.... When I prepare them for breakfast I always add fruit and pour them with plant milk. The most often I choose rice or oat milk.

Kosmiči. Današnji zapis ne bo recept ampak bolj ideja. Spomnim se sobotnih juter v supermarketu. Stara? Ne vem, otrok pač. Otrok, ki komaj čaka, da zabriše čokoladne kosmiče v nakupovalni voziček. In bananin jogurt. Absolutno še mortadelo z olivami, majonezo in solato..za sendvič seveda. Doma sem zvečer pred TVjem najrajši jedla bananin jogurt, v katerega sem natlačila (maksimalno, kolikor se je dalo) koruzne kosmiče poškropljene s čokolado. Potem sem čakala 10 minut, da so se kosmiči zmehčali. Kakšne 3 lončke jogurta sem si takole pripravila..no, vsaj dva. Hudiča... najboljša unikatna pogrutavščina ever. Ki sem jo samo jaz jedla. Ahhhh, danes pa... eh, eh, to vendar ni zdravo. Danes ne jem čokoladnih kosmičev ampak že dolgo meljem tiste navadne, ovsene kosmiče. Vsak si lahko doma naredi veliko bolj zdravo mešanico kosmičev, kot so tiste kupljene zadeve v škatlah, polne sladkorja. Ovsenim / pirinim /... kosmičem dodajte oreščke, rozine, laneno seme, bananin / kokosov čips.... Ko si jih pripravim za zajtrk vedno dodam sadje in prelijem jih z rastlinskim mlekom . Najpogosteje z riževim ali  ovsenim. 

Z ljubeznijo, Neja

Comfort food: Pizza muffins / Pica mafini


Do people ever make you angry? I assume they do. Yesterday someone made me angry and put me in a bad mood with his patronizing and testing me. I really don't like when people provoke me. I think this is so negative, and I simply can't understand why even be negative. Oh, I was very stressed out. Not only because of this, but because this person is soooo different than me. Really, I am realizing that I get extremely annoyed if someone is different than me. All this could be described with the word disconnection. I don't feel connected with such person and to me connection is very important. That whole scene was bothering me so much, that I just had to get it out and talk about it to people who understand me, are like me and can make me smile again. I got all that frustration and negative energy out with running too. I ran a lot better than days before ... I know why .. uff anger. And audio book that I listened to while running, it was just perfect. When I stopped running I stepped into dog poop. Maybe it wasn't a dog poop (?). I don't know =). But I do know one thing .... everything you need to get rid of negative emotions are people who feel with you, sports and books. It helps me. I love positivity, good people and laughter ... not just like, I need =).

Savoury muffins? Pizza muffins? Very simple, quick and the process is no different from preparing pizza. And mmmmm who does not like everything that tastes like pizza? One layer of dough and  on top of it all what fits you best .... Artichokes? Tuna? Gorgonzola? Paprika? Rocket? Prosciutto? Asparagus? You tell me =).

Ingredients
DOUGH
400g flour
teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
20g of yeast
2 ounces of lukewarm water
tablespoon sugar

OTHER INGREDIENTS
mushrooms
pizza ham
grated cheese
cherry tomatoes
mozzarella
oregano, thyme
ketchup
+ baking paper, muffin pan

The process
In a bowl, combine the warm water and yeast and let stand for 10 minutes. Add flour, salt, sugar, olive oil and the remaining water. Using your hands mix the ingredients  into a homogeneous mass. Brush the dough with olive oil, place in a bowl and cover it and let stand 1 hour. Cut baking paper into squares and then put them in the  muffin pan. Tear off a bit of dough  and put it at the bottom of the pan. Brush with ketchup, place the ham, grated cheese, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, sprinkle with spices. Bake 20 minutes at 200 ° C.




Se vam kdaj zgodi, da vas kdo razjezi? Predvidevam, da ja. Včeraj je mene nekdo razjezil in spravil v slabo voljo s svojim pokroviteljstvom in testiranjem. Res ne maram kadar me ljudje provocirajo. To se mi zdi tako negativno in preprosto ne morem razumeti zakaj sploh biti negativen. Oh, čisto sem bila v stresu. Ne samo zaradi tega, tudi zato, ker je ta oseba zelooo drugačna od mene. Res opažam, da me skrajno moti, če je nekdo drugačen od mene. Vse skupaj bi lahko opisala z besedo nepovezanost. Ne čutim se povezano s tako osebo, to mi je pa TAKO zelo pomembno. Vse skupaj me je tako spravilo s tira, da sem preprosto mogla zbruhat ven vse misli v zvezi s tem par ljudem, ki me razumejo, so mi podobni in me na koncu spravijo še v smeh s svojimi smešnimi izrazi. Zvečer sem s tekom odstranila vso to negativno energijo. Tekla sem veliko boljše kot dneve prej...vem zakaj.. uff jeza. In avdio knjiga, ki sem jo poslušala med tekom, je bila ravno pravšnja. Ko sem odtekla svoje sem povrhu vsega še v pasji drek stopila. Mogoče niti ni bil pasji (?). Kaj pa vem =).  Vem pa eno.... vse kar potrebuješ, da se znebiš negativnih čustev so ljudje, ki čutijo s teboj, šport, knjige. Meni pomaga. Rada imam pozitivnost, dobronamernost in smeh...ne samo rada, to potrebujem =). 
Slani mafini? Pica mafini? Zelo preprosto, hitro in postopek ni nič drugačen od priprave prave pice. In mmmmm, kdo ne mara vsega, kar je podobno pici? Plast testa, na vrhu pa vse tisto, kar vam najbolj paše....Artičoke? Tuna? Gorgonzola? Paprika? Rukola? Pršut? Beluši? Vi mi povejte=).

Z ljubeznijo, Neja

Comfort food: Brownies / Browniji

Ever get nostalgic? I myself ...very often. I love to store photos, greeting cards, postcards, letters, words ... I will never throw away words. Never. When I sit comfortably on the floor (?!?), I shake the box full of this things in front of me..and there you have it... words that were meant for ME, photos.. and on them caught moments from the past,  with people that might not be in my life anymore. And what they say is true, all true ... in the end you remember only beautiful and good things. I am thankful for all the people who have been part of my life in a given period.
I prefer to sit on the floor. On the floor, everything is more magical ... because you are almost like a child. Adults do not sit on the floor, children sit anywhere. In a tree, in the middle of mud, in the middle of corn maze ,on a pile of snow on the dusty attic floor , really everywhere .... I like that. What would I save in a case of fire? Words and photos. If I threw away these things I would definitely have a big hole in my heart. I just couldn't do that. Really. It would be like I wiped away everything that has ever happened to me. It's true that my memories would remain, but I forget a lot of things. You can find in this memory boxes a lot of random stuff: .... bills from lunches, drinks, tickets to concerts, cinemas, theaters, stones from the beach, empty lipstick, which I used back in the day, empty perfume bottles, dried flower, a map from some trip, written note from someone ... I am amazed that I don't save even chewed gum from some date. And I love notebooks. Having a notebook seems almost romantic to me and they sell really cool notebooks. I can write down in a notebook sudden thoughts, ideas, tasks that lie ahead .... or some emotions that bother or comfort me, quotes, song lyrics, titles of books that I must read. If you hang out with me, it is recommended that you are good with words, in a sincere way of course. I will like you more.
I wanted brownies. That's it, full stop :). This time I finally baked them. This recipe is more basic, I expected more, more concretely chocolate experience. I will find some recipe that really shocks you..you know..a real chocolate bomb. This recipe could also be used for a cake base. Brownies go best with ice cream, vanilla is ideal.

Ingredients
250g butter
250g plain dark chocolate
2 cl rum
250g brown sugar
10g vanilla sugar
180g flour
50g cocoa powder
5 eggs
20g butter for the pan

The process
In a saucepan together melt butter and chocolate to form a smooth mixture. Remove from, stir in rum and leave to cool a little. In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, vanilla sugar, flour and cocoa powder. Pour in  chocolate mixture and add the eggs. Mixed well using a mixer to obtain a smooth mixture.

Pre-heat oven to 180 ° C. Brush baking pan well with butter and pour chocolate mixture. Push it in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Cooled brownies cut into squares and serve.

Ste kdaj nostalgični? Sama sem to zelo rada. Nadvse rada shranjujem slike,  čestitke, kartice, pisma,  besede... nikoli ne zavržem besed. Nikoli. Ko se komfortno usedem na tla (?!!?!), stresem pred sabo škatlo polno besed, namenjenih MENI, slike, kjer so ujeti trenutki preteklosti, na katerih so osebe, ki jih morda v mojem življenju ni več. In drži kar pravijo, vse drži...na koncu se spominjaš samo lepih stvari. Hvaležna sem za vse ljudi, ki so bili del mojega življenja v določenem obdobju. 
Najraje sedim na tleh. Na tleh je vse skupaj bolj pravljično...ker si kot otrok. Odrasli ne sedijo na tleh, otroci sedijo povsod. Na drevesu, sredi blata, sredi koruznega labirinta, na kupu snega, na zaprašenih podstrešnih tleh....povsod in to mi je všeč. Kaj bi rešila, če bi gorelo? Besede in slike. Če bi stran metala te stvari, bi v meni nastajala luknja. Ne morem, res ne. Kot bi s tem brisala vse, kar se mi je kdaj zgodilo. Je že res, da mi ostanejo spomini, ampak vseeno veliko pozabim. V kakšnih takih spominskih škatlah in skrinjah se znajde vse.... računi iz kosil, karte iz koncertov, kina, gledališča, kamni iz plaže, prazna šminka, ki sem jo včasih uporabljala, prazna steklenička parfuma, posušena roža, zemljevid iz kakšnega izleta, popisan listek od nekoga, ...čudno, da ne shranim še prežvečenih žvečilnih gumijev iz kakšnega dejta. Rada imam tudi beležnice. Imeti beležnico se mi zdi skoraj romantično pa še tako cool beležnice obstajajo. Vanje lahko zapišem nenadne prebliske, ideje, opravila, ki me še čakajo....ali pa stresem kakšno čustvo ven iz sebe, citate, besedila pesmi, naslove knjig, ki jih moram NUJNO prebrati. Če se z mano družiš, je priporočljivo, da si iskreno spreten/na z besedami. Tako te bom imela rajši. 
Brownije sem si želela. To je to, pika :). Tokrat sem jih končno tudi spekla. Sicer je tale recept bolj osnoven, pričakovala sem več, bolj konkretno čokoladno izkušnjo. Bom drugič izvohala kakšen bolj bombni recept. Ta recept bi lahko uporabili tudi za biskvit za torto. Poleg brownija idealno paše sladoled, še najboljše vanilija. 

Z ljubeznijo, Neja


Sestavine
250g masla
250g navadne temne čokolade
2 cl ruma
250g rjavega sladkorja
10g vanilijevega sladkorja
180g moke
50g kakava v prahu
5 jajc
20g masla za pekač

Postopek
V kozici skupaj stopimo maslo in jedilno čokolado, da nastane gladka zmes. Odstavimo, vmešamo rum in nekoliko ohladimo. V večji skledi zmešamo rjavi sladkor, vanilijev sladkor, moko in kakav v prahu. Prilijemo čokoladno zmes in dodamo jajca. Vse skupaj dobro premešamo z mešalnikom, da dobimo enotno in gladko zmes.
Pečico ogrejemo na 180 °C. Pekač dobro namažemo z maslom in vanj vlijemo čokoladno zmes. Potisnemo ga v ogreto pečico in pečemo 15 minut. Pečene brownieje dobro ohladimo. Ohlajene narežemo na kvadratke in postrežemo.
