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…


Healthy chocolate spread

Hi!!! I know I told you before that I was going to take a break from pumpkin, but, honestly, I am not strong enough LOL… Every time I start looking for inspiration, in the internet, in the grocery, in the mall… I just end up searching por pumpkins or buying pumpkins and butternut squash! So,…


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…


Pumpkin crepes with diabetic friendly caramel (with tagatose)

OK, so Halloween is over and we need to do something with all that pumpkin meat that you scooped out to make your spooky decor…. or just because it is pumpkin season and they’re super nice and very versatile, both for sweet and savory… or just because I am pumpkin obsessed right  now (I still…


Pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon and ginger

Since Halloween is approaching so fast and everything and everywhere is inundated with pumpkins (decorations, markets, supermarkets, small shops…) and since it happens that I  like pumpkin very much, I also would like to post something pumpink(y). When I buy pumpkin, if I am not going to use it straight away, I peel it, clean…


Zoodles (zucchinni noodles) with smoked turkey breast

Zoodles! I think is one of the things all the food bloggers are talking about and you rather love or hate them. To be honest, I wanted to try them, but because my sister-in-law, who’s a wonderful woman and better foodblogger, posted a video on YouTube showing how to  make them (link here). At the…


Mediterranea salad with tuna and wheat berries

One of the things that I never give up reminding is that this is not a site about loosing weight diet, but healthy eating diet. And one of the pillars of healthy eating (to me) is a balanced diet in a balanced life. Don’t take me wrong, I always talk about myself and my way…


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…
