You're welcome! :D

Dear Ruxandra,

thank you so much for your great recipies, they all do look so yummy and I will for sure try out several. And also thank you for telling your story. I had to watch the trailer Earthlings and I could not stand long because it is so sad and shocking what happens out there - I am vegetarian since more than 20 years now but my children are not (they are probably too small for this movie, but it inspired me to talk with them about meat again...) Thank you so much Best wishes and you are so beautiful

Hi, Bea! You're welcome and thank you! :D Yes... couldn't watch Earthlings either. 10 minutes were enough for me. It's too much for's too much even for adults... but you can show them some nicer documentaries, such as food matters, food inc. I don't remember those having violent images.

Thank you for this great recipe! I made these for our girls night yesterday and they were a huge success? They were super easy to make, only my kitchen was a mess afterwards with coconut flakes everywhere ? Definitely worth it though ?


Sunday 13th of November 2016

You're welcome, Katja! So happy to hear this! :D Yes, making quite a mess is a downside, but as you said, it's totally worth it! :D

Am gasit la Naturalia doar ulei de cocos, nu pare sa se intareasca sau ceva. E totuna cu untul de cocos? E dubios... As vrea sa incerc reteta..

Hm.. eu stiam ca untul de cocos se transforma in ulei atunci cand e la temp. camerei si reia forma solida pus la frigider.

Are miros de cocos? Untul de cocos presat la rece trebuie sa aiba o aroma subtila de cocos, ala dezodorizat e procesat si nu stiu cat de sanatos e. Eu zic sa incerci si asa, e posibil sa ai nevoie de mai multi fulgi de cocos.

Sa imi spui daca au iesit ok :)
