Cold grape and pomegranate crumble

I know it looks like I am just working the other way round to the rest of the world, and I feel like so. While everybody is trying to fight the cold weather and thinking about thick hot gravy and turkey and all the trimmings, and getting all ready for Christmas, I am trying to…


Caramelized pears with serrano ham

Hi!! I’m back with a very easy recipe but absolutely stunning too. One of those starters to make on the go, takes just 5 minutes, but your guests will love it, and you’ll receive loads of compliments for it. It is based in a very typical Spanish summer dish: “Melon con jamon” (melon with serrano…


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…

Beetroot, orange and carrot juice

I am going to be totally honest… I dislike the taste of this juice. It is like that cold/flu medicine that you had to have when a child, you never liked the taste but knew that it was good for you, so you had to have it. Other people may like it, to me, it…


Avocado and banana ice cream

When I think of ice cream, it comes to me the image and taste of something creamy, sweet, nice and velvety… but, usually, that texture is giving by the diary cream. No more. Now there is a healthy way to make creamy, fruity ice creams without cream, but with avocado. I am sooooo in love…
