Pan-seared cod with green beans and butter and white wine sauce

"Eating well is a form of self-respect" Today I was reading an article about a girl, who has gone to Africa to work as a volunteer with kids at an orphanage. Needless to say - poor countries, where any kind of food is a luxury. She compared the happiness and joy of those, who had … Continue reading Pan-seared cod with green beans and butter and white wine sauce

Beetroot and goat cheese tartalette

Just beet it! There's one question that I always answer differently - "what is your favorite dish?". The first thought that comes to my mind - "Well, what exactly do you mean?" It depends... On time of the year, month or even day, who I'm with, where I am, what music is playing in my … Continue reading Beetroot and goat cheese tartalette

Parsley pesto

Never say never! #OMGImquotingJustinBieber... There was a time when parsley never made it to my shopping basket.

Risotto with shrimp

Risotto is always a good idea! All you need is love, a bit of patience and a few ingredients! People reasonably say that love is one of the most important ingredients! Couldn't agree more. Now when it comes to risotto - you also need to add patience. And then the rest is  covered! Risotto is … Continue reading Risotto with shrimp

“Pan con tomate” and a little extra

I love days when my only problem is - what's for breakfast? Oh... And how long is the afternoon run! Lately I felt a bit stuck on eggs (almost as many ways as one could think of) and porridges (oats or buckwheat topped with almost anything one could think of). And although looking at our … Continue reading “Pan con tomate” and a little extra
