Other Recipes

Here you will find my favorite Other recipes than breakfast, lunch an dinner. Here you have to think of snacks, juices and deserts like: Banana Bread, Homemade Granola, Tiramisu with Marsala, Agua de Jamaica and a lot more. In my blogs I will pick a specific ingredient that I describe in more details. So what are the benefits of for example banana or hibiscus. This way I learned more on vegetables and their advantages, but hope you will learn more on the ingredients we eat too. I try not to cook with pre-fabricated sauces and mixes. They contain a lot of added ingredients and E numbers.

Most of my recipes are simple, not with too many ingredients and mainly low in carbohydrates. This is better for my body weight and I feel more active eating less carbs. I normally make my dinner meals on Sunday and eat them for the coming days and put some in the freezer. This way I save time and I have always a good meal at hand for more busy times. But this is my way of cooking, perhaps you can use on recipe for your whole family at once. I just want to inspire you with the cooking and plating!

Recipes related to my Travel

A lot of my food recipes are inspired by my traveling around the world. I also do cooking classes to learn the local cuisine; for example Sri Lanka, Tel Aviv, Bali and Mexico. I must admit I’m not a professional cook, but love to be creative and cooking is a way to be creative in the kitchen. I hope you will be inspired by my recipes and my travel blogs at the same time. All recipes are, easy to make, mostly healthy and most important very delicious! Check my Instagram Mirja’s Inspirations to see more food and travel inspirations! See you there!
