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 […]
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 […]
Appetizer with egg, tuna and cheese Recipe I think everyone relates food or specific recipes to memories and whenever you make them again, it seems like you smell the same odours or experience the same moment of that particular time. This very easy recipe it is very special to me as I used to do […]

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. The soup has very few ingredients and it is very easy to make. You can have it when outside […]
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 […]
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.
Chicken Curry Recipe There are so many perfect combination in which we can cook chicken, you can roast it with potatoes/ make a perfect broth for a soup/ make yummy chicken rolls”gordon bleu” and add cheese and ham/ or simply cook it on a frying pan with peppers, wild fennel seeds “I will post the recipe […]

Since I have been in UK, I have been looking everywhere (local shops or big groceries) to find one of my favourite things ever, the truffle cheese.
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.

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) 🙂

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 […]
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.
I believe that vegetables are so versatile when it comes to cooking, that you can’t just have them boiled or fried, why not try to roast and fill them but with something different, you will end up eating something healthy and delicious and less expensive.
This is what we had for lunch 40 minutes ago and we really enjoyed it because we are trying to push our boundaries and try different cuisines.
This is what we had yesterday for dinner, seafood pasta linguine with a “touch” of chili. This dish is perfect if you want to impress your loved one, friends or even if you are brave enough to cook on your first date.
