3 Bento, Side dish, and Snack recipes with Almonds, Oranges, and Sweet mustard for Lactose-free and No soy diet

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.

Orange cheese-tart

I didn't plan to make this cake at all, what I did plan was apple tart with apricot jelly... Well, sometimes I just change my mind, especially while experimenting in the kitchen :-) The result is interesting, refreshing and citrusy! :-) If you don't like the strong orange aroma, you can replace them with any soft and sweet fruit: peaches, pears, and apricots should do fine!

Sweet Mustard Eggs Bento

I got tired of sausages after yesterday's deluxe bento, so today I decided to have some eggs with lunch. I put some sweet mustard over the cooked yolk to have them pack some punch and they were really interesting!

I prepared also hand-made furikake (rice sprinkles) with ingredients I like, which made my rice extra tasty today!
