Easy dessert – Millefeuille and Custard recipe I like the Millefeuille pastry because it is one of the easiest, yummiest and you only need cheap and simple ingredients.

This was our Saturday breakfast this morning and as I was attempting to take a photo of it, I pleasantly noticed the twisted distortion of shades and shapes. It felt like the light wanted to be in the limelight and not the food. I think it is a very interesting protagonist rotation.
Savoury muffins with leek and spinach Whenever I have friends coming by, I always make sure to cook something different and interesting. In fact, I usually cook this savory muffin recipe when we are having a party or have a lot of people in the house. These leek and spinach muffins are very easy to […]

I had some eggplants/aubergines in the fridge 2 days ago and I wanted cook them in a different way.

Me and my husband loved the results because all you […]

Grilled vegetables with dressing (Vegetarian recipes) I know many people who are non so keen on vegetables, they would never eat them unless blended on a soup. Vegetables, to my opinion are the most versatile ingredients we have in the kitchen and thus there are so many ways to cook them but I think sometimes […]
Meringues with homemade fresh fruit jam/sauce 2 days ago I really wanted to eat something sweet for dessert but I didn’t want the usual slice of cake, I wanted something different, that required few ingredients and produced a different texture and I came out with this idea of making small meringues (crunchy outside and soft […]
Spring is one of those seasons where everyone can give its own interpretation, in my family, me and my husband have different opinions.
I have been eating a lot of salads lately and I am enjoying them very much. I like the fact that you can assemble whatever you like and what’s important (whatever you have on your fridge). This salad in particular is one of my favourite as it has simple but very healthy ingredients in it.
Spaghetti Carbonara I think that whenever a recipe is easy and has few ingredients than it is the best. Spaghetti carbonara reminds me of the simple and fabulous homemade recipes that our grandmas used to make for us. They didn’t use fancy “sauces” or expensive cooking utensils, all they had was easy and accessible ingredients, yet they […]
Food is one of my favourite things in life and I enjoy it even more when I know what’s in it! Whenever I go to the supermarket and grocery store I prefer looking at the labels before buying stuff.

This very easy recipe it is very special to me as I used to do […]

Detox water – Orange and blueberries Everyone has it own opinion about beauty. In fact beauty to me it is not only about appearance but it is also about loving and caring about your body from within because there is no point using make up on your face and completely neglect your nutrition. Whenever I make detox […]
Soup of the day – Lentils Soup This lentils soup is a perfect solution every time I want to eat something healthy, delicious and want to detox after “fully immersion into food” during holidays like Easter.

I love bread, all sort of breads,ciabatta,baguette,panini, the ones flavoured with tomatoes,onions or sesame seeds but my favourite is the one with pieces of yummy cheese on it. Yesterday,
We cooked a lot of food this Easter (well we cooked the dishes we like the most) and lamb is one of those recipes one can’t miss to have, as me personally don’t eat lamb very often but I like this recipe because it is not too much complicated and has a few ingredients […]
There is no Easter for me without chocolate, chocolate eggs, or other unhealthy food you find in the groceries. I have always had an incredible amount of food during Easter but this specific year will be a bit different as me and my husband will be alone and will celebrate it alone.
Hummus recipe am definitely a “snack loving” person but since most of the snacks are not very healthy, I am always looking for new ways to treat myself. Now, basically this snack consist of some “crudites”, just a fashionable way to say raw vegetables accompanied by my homemade Hummus sauce.

Tortellini with vegetables and curcuma Tortellini I usually eat, are very often accompanied with butter and sage or cream cheese sauce but this one is different. In fact, these tortellini are accompanied with vegetables (broccoli,courgette,pepper and a hint of Curcuma and Oregano ).
Sometimes, it is so easy to make a special and nice looking dish, using simple ingredients. To make this recipe, I used smoked salmon, and on the top I decided to put some finely sliced carrot,potato and parsnip.
I was just about to start eating the whole pizza, but I couldn’t resist the first bite before taking the photo! Lol 🙂

Polenta recipe with spare ribs and sausage on tomato sauce. This is what I cooked last Sunday for me and my husband. If you don’t know what Polenta is, it is a cornmeal boiled into a porridge.
After a hard day from work, I usually am really hungry and due to this, I try really hard not to eat easy accessible junk food (like crisps or chocolate bars).
They seem normal clouds however……… The one on the top, actually is not a Cloud 🙂
Every time we cook “Ravioli”, lunch or dinner turns into something special and elegant. For those who haven’t got a clue of what a “ravioli” is, it is a type of pasta which is filled with different type of sauce inside (mushroom and cheese/tomato, basil, Parmesan/ham and cheese there are a different variety).

Potato Gnocchi with Pesto sauce This is a traditional dish from the northern Italy, it is simple to make (if you have ready prepared gnocchi or the ready Pesto sauce) and pretty complicated but very interesting if you decided to make it yourself.

Noodles means new flavours for me, I am not used to eating beansprouts either but I am really enjoying the combinations between the soya sauce,vegetables,prawns and noodles. The noodles in the photo are my very first attempt, (so people used to eating and cooking noodles, bare with me, I will try to improve) 🙂
Potato, carrot and leek soup Whenever outside is cold, I feel like I want something to eat which will cuddle me with its consistency and warm hearted smell. This soup is my favourite healthy comfort food and never lets me down. I think it is because it reminds me of my mum’s soup, she used […]
Have you ever tossed a coin or two into a fountain and made a wish? Did it come true? The first thing I thought when I read this question was: I can’t forget when I tossed a coin in Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi) making the wish to come back in Rome for holiday.

Walking on the street after the rain, I love the fresh air and the lovely little puddles where you can see a variety of reflections.
Recipe: Paccheri pasta with mushroom and peas I know many people who aren’t very keen on eating mushrooms, a solution to this could be trying to cook it in different new ways which really enhances its amazing flavour. Mushroom is usually grilled or simply put on the pizza but there are a variety of them […]
Yesterday my “hubby” was feeling a bit poorly so I had to take care of him ( you know how men are about having just 2 lines of fever more than normal). I didn’t have much time to cook properly because after work I was feeling exhausted so had to prepare something really fast but […]
I feel like there is a magical and strong power surrounding the word “believe”, I don’t know why but it makes you feel so small in front of it. Believing into someone or something is taking part into something which is uncontrollable ( you can’t help yourself not deeply feeling it) and unknown to you […]
Today we had this special dish which is basically a whole huge turkey thigh cooked with some basic vegetables (carrots,onion,garlic,sellery) and white wine. Of course I couldn’t forget to make a special gravy to go with it.
