About Us

“Eating IN is the new eating OUT” our friend said couple of days ago, but we have known that for years.

USWe really like and enjoy to cook and eat at home. We just love everything we make,ย  well except the times when the food is too salty, burned, lumpy, too watery, too thick…you get the picture ๐Ÿ™‚ We are not perfect but we learn from every experience.

Maiu (made in Estonia) is allergic to quite a lot of foods. It’s very stressful to go and order in some restaurant when you have allergies.ย  You have to make sure that there isn’t anything that can cause you an allergic reaction. You really need to trust people that you just met! The two biggest ones are bell peppers and honey. Yes, you probably haven’t met anybody with a honey allergy, but we have it, no honey here (unfortunately). The smaller allergies are for beans, cabbage, tomato, corn, rye, orange, chocolate, garlic, shell fish, cucumber, honey, kiwi and lemon. Also we eat lactose free in our household.

From August 12, 2015 we eat gluten and egg free, also pea, mussel, yeast, wheat, cola nut, squash, cashew, pistacio, malt yuka, ginkgo, aloe vera, agar agar and fig free. ย This is the list that I got from my food intolerance test. There are special times when I break my gluten and egg rule, like on Xmas and Valentine’s Day, possibly my birthday and when we travel. But I most definitely paying for it by bloating, tummy – and headaches. Why you ask? Because it is worth eating like a normal person for few times per year!

Rob is not allergic to anything, even to the food that doesn’tย  turn out perfect, but even then he praises the foods and says what a good chef his wife is. That is a talent for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

Our recipes are easy.ย  Nice home cooked meals and everyone can do it! Nothing difficult, because cooking should be fun and easy!

Join our journey and cook with us!

  1. Happy New Year. Thank you for visiting my blog. I also love cooking (easy recipes) who wants to complicate life? Not me. Have a lovely week and a wonderful 2014. Best wishes!


  2. Indeed! We live in a rural area of Wa State so our eating out options are few. Therefore eating in is what we do! I find it builds community full of creative cooks (because we can’t just run to the grocery store and get that exotic ingredient right away) and strengthens our bonds as a group because we’re all in the same boat and sharing meals. I have never met anyone with a honey allergy, wow that has me pondering what it is in honey that your system can’t work with. Allergies are serious these days and yet I don’t remember anyone really having them when I was a kid. Hum?
    I’m glad you are enjoying caramelize life, many thanks for the follow!


    1. Thank you for stopping by! Honestly I have never met anyone with honey allergy as well ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I just ate too much of it when I was a kid. When I was growing up I had no allergies and I didn’t get the allergies or the people who had them. Maybe that’s my punishment ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Interesting, you say that, I have a couple of friends who during childhood only ate certain foods and now as 20 somethings are allergic in some fashion to those foods. Allergies really change one’s life. Finding the silver lining, as you have with your blog, is the best way to live with them. Happy day to you!
