Pollo Pepe (Sherry Chicken)

It has been forever since I posted the last entry on this blog. How does time run so fast? Anyway, I long back wanted to share the recipe for this amazingly juicy and savory chicken dish with you.

On the streets of the Maresme, Catalunya

Last September we made a trip to our beloved Spain, visiting the beautiful Maresme of Catalunya, on the coast of the Mediterranean sea. The Maresme has gorgeous sandy beaches and countless little bars scattered along the coast. These bars will offer you several choices for a growling stomach: cold tapas, sandwiches, hot tapas with a … Continue reading

Vitasia Tandoori Kit

I love Indian food. The colours, smells, spices and variety amaze me. I  have my favorite Indian place here in Hungary where they make the BEST samosas and curries. However people are curious beings and love to experiement, isn’t that so? I found a DIY Vitasia Tandoori Chicken kit in the local Lidl supermarket – … Continue reading

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

Orange_Duck_2

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 – however … Continue reading
