Lemony & spicy eggs en cocotte

in Small bites, Taste -

The last week or so has been kinda different; Mike’s in LA on business (and by business I mean the freakin’ OSCARS, for which Stutterer, the little gem he did the cinematography for, has been nominated WON AN ACADEMY AWARD! Wait, what?!?) and I’m in London, up to my eyeballs in work . Since he left, […]

Pepper, harissa & basil baked eggs

in Savoury, Taste -

My father is quite rarely mentioned here. He almost never talks about food- he barely discusses the recipes I share on the blog, although he’s told me over and over again that he likes the stories I write. Sometimes, he also comments on mistakes he finds- which doesn’t surprise me at all. When I was in College, I had once […]

Easter eggs

in Savoury, Taste -

You gotta have eggs for Easter, right? Chocolate or hard boiled ones, in beautiful colours. I’m used to Easter eggs being painted red and smashed together, two at a time, with the winner being the one whose egg remained intact. We always spent the Easter holidays in the mountains and the eggs to be dyed were white, fresh from […]

Food for thought

in Inspiration -

Food for thought: yes to eggs for dinner, mixing spices and citrus cocktails, Georgia O’Keeffe, healthy plants, berry cakes & cookies.  Compared to last week, which seemed to move like a lazy, annoyed, unmotivated slug, this was a hell of a ride. It was busy and fast, with lots of ups and some downs too; rewarding […]

Blueberry, lemon & pine nut cake

in Desserts, Taste -

This blueberry, lemon & pine nut cake is exactly how I love a cake to be: simple, sweet, delicious, maybe a little messy and oh so satisfying.  I don’t remember when exactly, but somewhere along this weekend, it dawned on me how long it’s been since I last made a cake. I’ve spent the better […]

Food for thought

Food for thought today is the heartbreaking beauty of adolescence, the magic of Harper Lee, outdoor cinemas and spicy breakfast eggs. The week after a holiday, no matter how short or long, how far or not at all, is always difficult. I struggle to get my bearings and stubbornly resist to succumb to any form […]

Happy Easter

in Inspiration -

Wishing y’all a very happy Easter with all the traditions, delicious dishes, colourful surroundings and chocolate your heart desires! As much as I was snubbing it as a rebellious teen, Easter is now one of my favourite times of the year; perhaps the fact that, for the past few years, I have been spending it […]

Food for thought

in Inspiration -

This food for thought is all full of spring and anticipation for the coming week: Easter traditions, flower power, delicious cookies and wanderlust.  Growing up, the week before Easter was always quite significant; there were lots of traditions involved (some already existing, others having emerged through the years in our family), lots of preparations, fighting […]

Halva & dark chocolate blondies

in Desserts, Taste -

Deliciously cakey and soft, these halva & dark chocolate blondies are subtly sweet, fragrant and guaranteed to make you crazy about halva.  Halva is one of my all time favourite sweet things; I love its tahini flavour, slight sweetness and irresistibly crumbly texture; that aside, it’s so dear to me mostly because of all the memories […]
