Brown Sugar Palmier Bites

These palmiers are one of my boyfriend’s big favorites. Back in Spain they would be partly covered in chocolate (and would be way bigger in size), here at home he gets the simple sugary version. You will need a pre-made puff pastry sheet, some brown sugar and 5 minutes total prep time (not counting the … Continue reading

Breakfast Brioche Muffins

I have been chatting today with one of my colleagues about his recent vacations in France. His most vivid memory at the time seemed to be the fresh, soft piece of brioche he and his wife bought for each day’s breakfast, to be accompanied by a cup of espresso. His enthusiasm about this piece of pastry … Continue reading

Foods that normally don’t need refrigeration

I just stumbled upon this post by Sarah Lipoff at Popsugar about a list of 31 items that don’t need to be stored in the fridge and thought it might be useful to share it here as well. Some of them surprised me, some of them are in the category ‘I know it shouldn’t be … Continue reading

Food saving ideas

I saw John Oliver’s video the other day about Food Waste and it inspired me to share my food ‘saving’ ideas here, there might be one or two that you didn’t think about? I truly hate throwing away food, sad to see a peach growing mould or a cup of yogurt passing waaay by its … Continue reading

Hungarian Grad Lunch :)

One of my friends finished high school this May so we went to celebrate it with a nice lunch in a real Hungarian restaurant with authentic local food. The restaurant was a great choice, nice staff, good location and I’ll let the pictures speak about the tasty food! Trout from Szilvasvarad with fresh mixed greens Wild … Continue reading

Easy, Juicy Orange Duck

Somehow it did not feel right to share this recipe while the recent bird flu that surfaced in Hungary calmed down but now it should do no harm :) I was a bit “scared” of baking duck as I always had the feeling there is no way it won’t be dry as the desert – … Continue reading

La Tasca De Los Vinos – Las Palmas, Gran Canaria

As I mentioned we have been to a couple of good restaurants during our recent trip to Gran Canaria, Spain, but I have to highlight this one. Hidden in the small Calle El Cid in Las Palmas, the restaurant La Tasca de los Vinos is a true gem of Uruguayan cuisine. Meats from Uruguay, small … Continue reading

Eating our way around Las Palmas, Gran Canaria – Part 1

Following our few days’ visit to Barcelona, the airplane dropped us in Las Palmas, capital city of the Canary Islands. I’ve been here many times and never get bored of the climate – always Spring here, not much rain, and almost always sunny on the Southern part of the island. You can also find great … Continue reading

This is the first part of pics from the trip, hope it will … Continue reading

Sweet Temptation: Churros from Barcelona, Spain

It is that time of the year again, right? When you can indulge without remorse – we are allowed to devour all the Christmas cookies that we can and sit back with a big mug of cinnamon hot chocolate topped with cream and chocolate sprinkles… So why not enjoy a batch of Catalonian Churros with … Continue reading
