February and spring is in the air, I love it, but food wise I’m confused. I find some ‘in between’ inspiration in one of my cookbooks ‘ The Green Kitchen at Home’. A fusion of two of their recipes with lots of vegetables and a little twist are a possible compensation to my confusion 😜.Clean … More The Green Kitchen at Home
I admit, I love Jamie Oliver. His cooking style inspires me since the early beginning and I’m still a big fan. This salad is really delicious, although I add more vegetables. For 2p, start with the cucumber. Cut the cucumber in 2 halves. Remove the seeds (and the skin if you prefer). Slice thinly. Mix … More Asian salmon salad
It’s time to use the cataplana. The Cataplana is a Portugese cooking dish, available in cupper (is the original), in inox, or in aluminium. The wonderful thing about travelling and food is buying a real genuine cooking tool in the country and using it to cook genuine but also non-genuine dishes. Split the cataplana into … More Shells in a creamy green vegetables mix made in a Portugese Cataplana and served with quinoa

Filled and grilled squid is not really a winter recipe, but on a gray rainy day it will be the ideal start of a weekend enjoying italian movies (this is also a … More Made in Italy

Use smaller size potatoes, put … More In the mood for French, ‘Salade Niçoise’
To avoid that every weekend is synonymous with weightgain, try to think about a way to cook something extra without abuse of fat and cream. Who else is better to give inspiration than the Jeruzalem book of Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi? Their salads are so delicious! My choice tonight is a green salad with … More Sunday: lazy and light
Living here with only two adults, a dog and two cats we do not need an incredible amount for a week, yet mainly inspiration to try to please everybody. We rarely eat meat and when we do, it will be chicken of good quality. We easily eat fish twice a week. The other days we … More ‘Shoppinglistday’ : new delivery!
Hidden between the parsley and spinach I found… Brussels sprouts in little boxes of 300gr, so I bought two boxes (1pp). What can you use instead of bacon? Smoked tuna or salmon are an ideal alternative, especially if you find a whole piece that you can cut in larger cubes (70-100 gr pp). This recipe … More Brussels sprouts, also in Italy!
