Earl Grey breakfast quinoa with tahini & jam

in Breakfast, Taste -

A delicious, warming and filling Earl Grey breakfast quinoa with tahini & jam for those sunny yet cold last days of winter. The last few days have been somewhat hard, somewhat dragging more than I would have liked. I love winter- and even when I don’t, I’ve learned to at least (pretend to) keep my […]

Tahini, cherry & pistachio chunky granola

in Breakfast, Taste -

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day; I know, I sound like a broken record, but to me (and others, I guess) it’s not just a meal: it’s your first choice of the day, a simple pleasure, yet one that I truly cherish. I really don’t get people who have breakfast in a rush or […]

Pickled onion & smoked salmon breakfast platter

in Breakfast, Taste -

This breakfast platter with pickled onions and smoked salmon is one of my favourite things to wake up to on a lazy weekend.  I love breakfast every day of the week; I usually wake up quite early, between 7 and 7.30, and after painstakingly following my morning routine, I start preparing breakfast. It may be […]

And… for this Friday’s trick… I’m bringing Food for Though back! I so loved that little compilation of all things random or not, from all over the web.  And then suddenly things got really busy. I felt I had little time to go through articles properly, to really read and think about them so that I could […]

Brown butter & hazelnut apple cake

in Desserts, Taste -

This brown butter & hazelnut apple cake is a variation of the one my mom’s recipes: simple, unapologetically straightforward and perfect for fall. Enamoured as I am with apples, every autumn they are appear on our table frequently and in different ways: roughly chopped, tossed with dried fruit, toasted nuts and folded into creamy oatmeal; […]

This apple, blackberry & cinnamon jam is thick, as sweet as it should and has made me fall in love with apples all over again!  Ever since I moved to London, every autumn, without fail, I find my self in awe of all the apple varieties available: there’s small, sour ones, with light pink and green […]

Of all the speedy dishes my sister’s whipped together, this ginger, lime & toasted nut quinoa is packed with flavour and probably my favourite. Ever.    After having lived in different countries for almost seven years, I’ve found myself reconnected with my literal other half again. Alkyoni is back in the UK and her coming […]
