macadamia iced coffee

Iced coffee is one of the best things about summer. It’s right up there with ice cream for me.  I can’t go through a day without having at least one coffee, right in the morning. I usually have one or two later in the day, it all depends on what I’m doing. During the summer it normally just gets too hot for a regular coffee, so I prefer the chilled version.

I occasionally spoil myself with decadent dessert-like versions including ice cream and whipped cream, but my go-to fix is always chilled black coffee with a splash of milk. Any milk for that matter, although a different variety every now and then can make a coffee much more exciting. And a little while back when I made this macadamia nut milk, I made it primarily for iced coffee.

Between all the list making and preparation for our Amsterdam trip, all the cat-sitter coffee dates and day dreaming, these adorable peach cookies are what has been on my mind for the past few weeks. Because it’s almost summer and I can’t wait for actual peaches to start rolling in and because a good cookie is a good cookie, something I will never have a problem with.

Remember these pretty mushroom cookies from last year? Well, these peach cookies are the distant cousins of those. I already knew at the time I’d be making them soon enough, but the season wasn’t right. And now I don’t have to wait anymore. Now, I can finally tell you all about these bites of heaven.

I don’t know if I’ve ever shared with you the fact that I have a lactose intolerance. I don’t normally talk about it, because I don’t think it’s a big deal, but with the ice cream season in full force, it’s the time of year when I notice it the most. I love ice cream, a little too much to be honest. And while the selection of vegan ice creams is pretty big, there’s just something about fatty gelato that keeps me coming back.

I also love iced coffee, a little too much, and just dairy in general. But I have to limit my intake or I risk having (at least) a really bad stomach ache, the most often side effect for me, which happens fast after eating ice cream or even when I have full fat milk in coffee.

cauliflower millet soup with lemon

My cravings do really change with the weather or as much as the weather. It’s not that I didn’t already know this about myself, but it’s really clear now, with this cauliflower millet soup. I made this on a moody Sunday when it was both sunny, dark and windy out, the sky changing all damn afternoon and I kept waiting for the rain that never came. And what I wanted for lunch was something refreshing, but also comforting.

I’ve been loving spring so much all I want to do is toss salads together, but I should do more than just that. I stayed away from cauliflower for a while, because I see it as a winter vegetable and only that, which makes no sense. It’s a great vegetable, very versatile, so why not make use of it in other seasons?
