Homemade chocolate pudding

I wanted avocado ‘chocolate’ pudding but so far I had no luck with avocados 🙂 Seems impossible for me to find one that is mature enough. That is why I decided on classic recipe. Instant version is on sale at any grocery store, doesn’t cost much as well. But its taste can’t be compare with homemade one. […]

Sour cabbage

I am more in the mood for the old school classic during winter time. Spring is way too light for heavy food, strong and dark colors.  3 spoons olive oil 2 large onions, cropped  1/2 cup tomato sauce 1 spoon flour by your choice 1 red pepper, cut in little squares 2 cups mixed garden […]

Orange pork/tofu & green risotto

I love when S. is preparing dinner with me. Not for me or instead of me. In one way that is necessary as I won’t cook meat, but he, normally, loves it. Practically that means he is preparing meat for him while I am preparing sides, salad and a desert. Meanwhile we chit-chat about funny thing that happened to us […]

Sweet plum dumplings

I just can’t find the perfect theme for my blog. I love that one as is simple but I wish my photos to be bigger. Just a little bit 🙂 I love bigger ones. Actually I love photos. Since ever. More than any text that was ever written. Squash or pumpkin soup plus sweet plum dumplings and here is easy, simple […]

Baked beans & cheesy bread rolls

For me it is still ‘beans’ season. Last night I prepared my favourite version of baked beans with peppers and vegetable. Freshly baked bread rolls goes great along with. Ingredients for that: onion, garlic, fresh olive oil, red peppers, carrot, tomato puree, ketchup, white beans, green beans, corn, parsley, salt and lots of hot chilli […]

Continued with pumpkin empanadas, sweet white mulled wine and a good movie (classic never goes out of style). Ok I have to admit, I finished with Eat, pray love movie 🙂 Anyways, […]
