Simple labelled jam

Organic Jam – Simple Labelled food so decadent

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. Whenever I can, I completely avoid preservatives or colorants and  prefer “simple labelled” food over 100 […]

Egg, tuna and cream cheese appetizer

There is going to be food? Ok I’ll come!

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 […]

Sweet Easter memories and the chocolate bunny!

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.

Salmon fillet with vegetables couscous

3 casual continents on a dish

Salmon couscous with stir-fry vegetables Since today it is Friday (my favourite day of the week by the way) we decided to cook something really different and interesting. As  enjoyed it a lot,  I thought why not share it with everyone.

I believe, I trust, I appreciate……

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 […]

It’s finally Friday, yeahhh…… uuupppss wait a minute I need to do my weekly houseworks!

Everyday is a second chance

To have or not to have a baby now! This is the question

I was eating the chocolate cookie that I baked yesterday (which I posted the recipe) and I thought to myself  “these cookies are really tasty, I am going to be such a good mum .” But  what does being a good mum means? I got  married  2 years ago, I have a degree,

Why do people like Spring?

You wake up in the morning, you open the window and you feel a light breeze going through your hair, you hear the birds singing happily and you feel like they want to inform you something really. Spring is “next door”.
