Nut butter lovers this is something you’ll need to try. Story time or how I fell in love with nut butter Let’s take a trip down memory lane back to the year 2007. Little Julia went to the US for the first time for a student exchange. And not only did she fall in love with the country but she also discovered the love of her life: peanut butter! I don’t know just how many PB&J sandwiches I had in my three weeks in California but it were A LOT! So ever since then I’ve been obsessing over peanut butter. […]

I had my cousin over to visit me last weekend and while I got up at 6am on Saturday to get some work done she was still sleeping by 10am when I was done with my work. The perks of being a teenager! I still remember those weekend when I was sleeping in until my mom woke me up at noon for lunch. I think I haven’t slept until noon in at least 6 years. If you’d told me back then that I would become a morning person at some point in my life I wouldn’t have believed you. So […]

Zucchini just doesn’t go with sweet stuff for me.┬áBut squash just like sweet potato and carrots has something sweet about it anyways so I guess […]

Baked oatmeal cups

Growing up oatmeal wasn’t really a thing we ate at my home. So the very first time I actually had oatmeal was during my au pair year in the US when I got addicted to these sugary Quaker oatmeal packages. And ever since than I’ve been experimenting with all different kind of oatmeal variations. They are my go to quick breakfast where I literally just put oats and whatever I fancy in a bowl and pour hot water on top of it. I make creamy pudding-like oatmeal and top it with all kinds of fancy toppings when I have some […]
