Apple & Pumpkin Soup

Halloween has just been (and the Christmas decorations are already appearing around the place!) but for all my U.S friends Thanksgiving is just around the corner. So I suppose it is still pumpkin season.

I was contemplating the other day how nature seem to have provided us with a natural harmony of flavour pairings. It seems like many foods that …

Kale Salad with a Garlic-Tahini Dressing

So here we go with another kale salad recipe! Told you that I had an abundance…

I’ve also been thinking about my recipes and how I would like to try to give you some various alternatives, where ever and whenever it is possible.

I don’t know about you, but almost a week after the American Presidential election and even though at present it does not directly affect me on a personal level, I still feel a little flat.

Cavolo Nero Salad with a Mexican Twist


This weekend I finally feel like I’ve hit those Autumn vibes in my kitchen. After a massive haul of fresh groceries, since my fridge was literally empty on fresh food and 2 hours of cleaning out my pantries I think I feel ready to move into the last quarter of this year. And to get cosy with woolly jumpers, fires …

Red Cabbage Salad with Coconut & Blueberries

I’ve been wanting to share this recipe for the longest time ever! And I’ve also wanted to share a red cabbage recipe here forever… The funny thing is when you do food blogging though is that there’s so much timing involved. At least if you are trying to keep things somewhat seasonal. This means that sometimes I don’t  get to …
