{Light} Strawberry Pineapple No-Bake Cheesecake

Because sometimes you just want to eat cheesecake and not feel guilty about it. Or just because it’s absolutely delicious. Summer is all about light, fresh flavours and juicy fruit.

Potato Salad Bites

I’m a little bit weird when it comes to food preferences.   You already know I have to trick myself into eating vegetables. I also don’t eat cold cheese, only melted. To me, there’s just a really big difference. I have this thing against mayo, dressings, sour cream, and things of that sort. It’s not […]
