Pesto pasta with fresh salmon and peas

Hi!!! How were your holidays? Too much meat and gravy? how does it sound a nice dish of pesto pasta with fresh salmon and fresh peas? To me, like heaven! I can’t complain this year, with regards to spending my Xmas day in the kitchen, because, since I don’t have my oven (I think I…


Scotch Eggs (vegetarian version)

Hi!! How are you doing, my dears??!! Here in Chile is smelling a lot like…. Summer! (Yes, smelling like Christmas too, but, to be honest, I just can’t get used to a summery Chistmas, is not the same!!) But summer, means beach, sun, heat, short sleeves and picnic!! And, if we think about picnic, then…


Aubergine and chicken parmesan with pasta

The story behind this dish with aubergine and chicken parmesan, is not very chic… It comes from one of those days that you feel like nothing… those days that you can’t decide if you want to stay in bed or rather get up and get things done, and with food it happens the same… If…


Strawberries pasta salad with orange and poppy seed vinaigrette

Ok, so a few days ago, I was checking my Facebook feed, and finally one of its suggestions that “I may like”, I really liked it! I am amazed by this! It was a spinach strawberry pasta salad recipe, with a lush dressing, combining orange juice and poppy seeds. The video was so appealing that…


Homemade ravioloni filled with aubergine, mozzarella and sundried tomatoes, and with funghi porcini sauce

Well, I know that maybe the title is a bit too long, that you probably have to breathe twice in between, and so, but, if I spent hours making these delicious ravioloni, drying the tomatoes (skip this! just buy sundried tomatoes in olive oil), mixing, kneading and stretching the homemade pasta dough, filling it, boiling…


Tagliatelle with fake bolognaise and cappers

This fake bolognaise recipe came up because my daughter refused to eat veggies. She describes herself as a bolognaise expert, and states it’s her favourite meal, so she can’t be tricked when it comes to bolognaise… So what do you think I did? Exactly. I woke up on a Sunday and decided it was the…


Pan fried salmon with “salsa” and lemony vegetables

If my last post was about sardines, I’ll keep talking about tasty, Omega3 rich fishes: salmon, which, together with tuna are my absolutely favourite. To be honest, I’ll have my pan fried salmon with just some squished lemon and boiled potatoes, but with some simple ingredients you will be able to cook an amazing yet…


Vegetable pakoras with quick tomato chutney

The first time I tryed indian cuisine was in Valencia, back in 2002 or 2003… (don’t give me that look, in Spain it was not easy to find “foods of the world” unlues you went to the big cities, such as Madrid, Barcelona or Valencia). I always had a point of trying new things if…


Curry Rice and butternut squash balls

Since a long time ago, I try to reuse all my food leftovers, if they’re still edible. I don’t mean having for lunch the same 3 days in a row if I can avoid it, but reusing ingredients to make other dishes. For example, the recipe I am bringing today is what I do with…


Zucchinni cordon bleu

As I’ve previously said, I believe the key of life is balance. I’ve chosen to check better what I eat, so when I wan something less healthy, I can afford it, because sometimes, you can’t or want! And it’s fine not to want sometimes. We should not have imposed strict rules that cause stress or does’t…
