Backlog of Food Porn

Blog maintenance went over well, I got everything on my list done: The Recipe and Reviews pages are now updated, tags are sorted out and I added a search function that you can find on the right side. I also made some change to the Subscribe/Follow page. You can subscribe by e-Mail and get each new entry delivered straight to your inbox or stick to the good ol' RSS-feed. I really hope the e-Mail feature works, this is not a feature I use to subscribe to other blogs so I'm not sure how reliable it is and how the formatting of my entries may change, but I thought it was a good idea for those who don't use feed readers. You can find a link to my flickr page too and I would love some flickr buddies, so please get in touch y'all~~.

I didn't get much feedback regarding blog improvement, but you're all welcome to leave a comment or send me a mail anytime if there's anything you would like to see improved or if something is wrong with the layout or blog (dead links/photos for example) and I'll do my best to fix it. :)

Anyhooow.. It's been a while since I've posted some food porn, so I figured today would be as good a day as any to change that. I honestly didn't take many photos during my blogging absence, but spring is around the corner and the sky isn't that god awful shade of grey anymore and so I've gotten back in the habit of taking photos of what I cook and eat again. Everything is just more fun in spring, right? :)


Oats with Plums
Oatmeal with plums, hemp seeds and dark sugar beet syrup.


Pistache Noir Chocolate
Côte d'Or Pistache Noir 70%

This...sounds way better than it actually is, I'm sad to say. :( The pistachio pieces are sooo tiny, you can hardly taste them and when you do they taste like marzipan... I mean, I like marzipan, but that's not quite what I wanted when I bought this. It's not all bad, the dark chocolate tastes nice and that elephant is quite cute as well, but I won't be buying this particular flavour again.


Savoury Oatmeal with Tofu Scramble
Savoury oatmeal with soy sauce, sesame oil, scrambled tofu, beans, seitan and dried seaweed.

A lazy woman's answer to rice porridge, or bubur like they call it in Indonesia. I absolutely LOVED bubur when I was a child and I still do, but it takes a rather long time to make the classic rice version while it'll only take a couple of minutes if you're using quick cooking oats instead. The recipe is pretty simple, so if anyone's interested I could probably have it up sometime this week. :)


PB Filled Chocolate Pillows
PB filled chocolate pillow.

Last week I finally made the peanut butter chocolate pillows from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. I had a tub of oversalted homemade PB that needed to be used up... A neat excuse to bake cookies, amIright?! Of course I am, hehe. You really need to try these if you have VCIYCJ, because they're uh-maaaazing. 


N.A! Sweets
N.A! Nature Addicts fruit snack.

Fruit leather seems to have found it's way to Germany. 'bout time, I say. If only those little packets would be a bit a whole lot larger, ahem...


Speculoos Oats
Speculoos oatmeal with hemp seeds.


Oatmeal Snickerdoodle Style
Oatmeal with walnuts, snickerdoodle style. My current favourite.


Fake Egg
Vegan egg (!!), sunny side up.

Soon there won't be anything left for us vegans to veganize, I mean... vegan eggs?! Amazing! They're by no means perfect yet, but they're pretty darn good. The idea came from a thread on the PPK (here).


Yofu & Strawberries
Soy yoghurt with fresh strawberries.


Green Smoothie
Green smothie.

Made from hemp+chia seeds, bananas, spinach, soymilk, almond butter. The almond butter made it taste like cookie dough, I'm not even kidding. :)


[The last three photos were taken with my phone, sorry about the quality.]

  1. Everything looks sooo good! I love that egg! If not for the taste, for the looks of it, haha! Looks so real, I must try it out.

  2. I definitely vote in favor of posting a recipe for that savory oatmeal! Also, whatever the hell you did to make that "egg", it's scarily close to the real thing!

    All your oatmeal pictures have made me realize I haven't eaten breakfast yet...and now I must have oats! :P

  5. The egg looks amazing! I saw the original recipe, but your egg looks more authentic and I like how thin it is. Can you share how you got it to look so pretty?

  6. Alecho - Cool! I wouldn't say the stuff I post is always super healthy, but I hope you'll get something out of it. :)

    Elisabeth - Sorry for taking so long to answer your question. I wrote a bit about how I made it in the thread I linked to (page 1 & 2), I'm 'paperclouds' there. :) I will play around with it some more in the future though and post my results once I have the measurements down! :)
