I think it’s about time I posted a savoury recipe around here. This mediterranean pancetta pasta is pretty healthy and you can even make it more so by eliminating the pancetta but why would you want to do that??? Pancetta equals protein and protein is important so it’s a no brainer. We all know that pancetta is fancy bacon so that means it just makes everything better. The feta cheese gives it a great creaminess and saltiness that is just right that makes this mediterranean pancetta pasta just perfect and a total must. Continue reading
This chicken, bacon and mango salsa sandwich screams summer and I’m dying for summer to arrive but spring hasn’t really sprung around here so summer feels like it’s a ways away. Honestly we could just skip spring all together and go straight to summer. I love summer; it’s by far my favourite season of all. I love the heat, the light clothes, long nights, eating alfresco, the beach, and the amazing memories that are made each summer. Continue reading
Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had a great holiday season and I’m wishing that your 2015 be filled with much laughter, love, and many kisses! We all know that after the overload of gluttony during the Christmas season we need to get back to a healthier routine. It’s tough to think healthy especially when it’s cold and dreary outside but we have to make the effort. This is healthy comfort food (it does exist), which is exactly what I need at this time of year. This is my take on a healthy Bolognese sauce (a.k.a. as meat sauce at my house). It’s not a quick recipe but it is easy and it can be a total lifesaver because this is freezer friendly. Continue reading
I can’t remember how I stumbled upon this recipe online but I’m definitely glad I did. I found this morning glory muffin recipe here and I made them that same weekend. I have to apologize for the quality of the photos because they are pretty awful. A few months before going live with my blog, I started taking pictures of the food I was making and as I’ve mentioned before: photography isn’t my forte! These pictures are pretty bad and in hindsight I have no idea why I didn’t take a picture of the muffins outside of the ginormous muffin liners.
PICKLES – I still can’t believe it! I LOVE pickles especially bread and butter pickles. One of the few drawbacks of living in Spain is that you can’t find sweet pickles at the grocery store. Spanish pickles are crazy vinegary (is that even a word?) and I don’t like them at all; I usually buy German dill pickles. I’d been seeing lots of blog posts about making quick pickles however I never found the little pickling cucumbers so I just forgot about it. That is until I was in the El Corte Inglés (Spain’s answer to Macy’s) supermarket and I found little mini cucumbers. Logically I snatched up a few little boxes and set out to make pickles.
