Simple, Fresh, Crunchy Coleslaw

We normally try to eat healthy but sometimes we just get attracted to a big bucket of KFC chicken – well, we are all humans 🙂 I like their crunchy cereal coated chicken but what I really adore is the coleslaw. We ever miss to buy a few bowls when we go there, however I … Continue reading

Ensalada de Endivias, Langostinos y Frutas

My Mr’s mother has spent a couple of weeks with us at the end of last year and she has prepared some meals that I’m happy we didn’t miss to photograph.

I read somewhere that you should try something new every week (or was it month, day, year? Whatever!) So I thought it is time to try Guacamole. Now, the only problem is that I tried avocados once and did not like it at all. For me somehow it tasted like Play-doh. Anyway we had a … Continue reading


The mother of my Mr is spending a couple of weeks with us here in Hungary and while she is hoping to see some snowfall (unfortunately very unlikely, winter seems to be very mild this year) we are enjoying her great Spanish cooking skills. This dish, the “Sanfaina”, is a kind of vegetable stew, loaded … Continue reading
