…made some soup!!!
Cooked some carrots, leeks, courgette and onion with olive oil. Added water, pepper and salt. And mashed everything to a nice creamy and healthy soup!
I realise I might soup for a while but that’s quite OK ☺️
Always good to have something in the freezer 😉
…3 ingredients only and I truly hope they make you happy 😃
1. 170g of avocado (in a measuring bowl)
2. Top it up with milk to the 475ml line
3. Add 1 teaspoon of honey
And then just blend until is nice and smooth
This is it!! This simple milk shake has been part of my life since 2005! I first did it for Oreste to try and match a smoothie he had in Dubai. Apparently I was successful 😁
The recipe above makes a BIG BIG and filling milkshake. I tend to have it after a gym session and/or for brunch with some toasted bread. This keeps me going for hours…
If you have a very tiny stomach I recommend you to have half of the above😁😉
Ma cherie, you know who you are 😘😘😘
Last Sunday I found myself thinking how much I love eggs! Lately I always tend to have them boiled!!!
… I thought?!?
Well… a good egg pan was missing!!! Off course I went and got it…that same day I cooked the most perfect omelette!
FACT 1: Yes, I love to try different recipes but ever so often I find myself going through the same recipe repertoire over and over again. This is particularly more noticeable during the week when I try to fit in everything: work, working out, house chores, etc, etc….and I don’t even have children yet!!!
FACT 2: Yes, I am quite energetic and tend to do a variety of activities every day but I am no Wonder Woman! Truth is, I tend to stick with healthy, faster, easy to make recipes.
FACT 3: Yes, I have seen a salad recipe with only a few ingredients and thought:
Have to try this one!
My #TransformationTuesday Chickpea and Prawn salad was absolutely divine! With only a few ingredients – prawns, lettuce, chickpeas, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil – I managed to innovate my easy to make healthy recipe portfolio…on a week day.
Then comes #ThowbackThursday! Nothing like a good, old spaghetti dish as a reward for a busy and productive week and GREAT workout at my gym!
Cheers to a week of good food and let’s see what
will bring to our plates! Stay tuned!
P.S.: Remember: if you see something you’d like to try and make it yourself drop me a message and I’ll post the recipe for you 😉
Instead of crying my eyes out because my ‘volpino’ is back in the UK, I decided to have some “me” time in the kitchen and try something new! This is how it was
Pasta Al Pesto di Broccoli
I have seen the recipe in the Giallo Zafferano website http://www.giallozafferano.it/ and thought it sounded really ‘yummy’…
and fortunately my thoughts were proven right!!
My evening started with the perfect aperitif:
I then moved on to the preparation of the pasta:
The preparation was neither time consuming not tedious…and the final product was delicious…
…and delicious food makes me happy 😊
You should try it sometime😉
It’s been 1 year and almost 3 months since my last post! I’ve been wanting to write for a while but just didn’t know where to start. On May 13th 2013 I was celebrating a new job! Well… since then I changed job yet again, got engaged and married in less than a month, relocated to Doha, Qatar, moved twice while in Doha…
Needless to say throughout all these life events food and cooking has always been present!
And then yesterday happened and I knew exactly how to break my loooooooong silence!
I cooked a 3 pan meal ONLY for me!
I relocated to Doha by myself. My MOST WONDERFUL husband, Oreste Majeli, is still living in our place in London. He does come to Doha every month which makes of me a very fortunate person!
When I relocated, back in November 2013 I started cooking almost straight away…it’s part of me and was important to make me feel more settled! Two things were VERY important: cooking and finding a good gym! And I got both!
I started shy I must admit…cooking only for one…hummm…not the most exciting thing! But baby step by baby step I found not only I wanted to cook simple meals but also more complex ones even if it was ONLY for me. And yesterday I found myself cooking a risotto involving a three pan preparation – I was extremely pleased and proud of myself!
Below are a few shots of my “Food For One” meals:
But there’s nothing like having the company of my better half for dinner though…
… and obviously, the company of friends!
And now that I broke my silence I shall be sharing good food, good wine, wonderful moments more often…

Sooooooooooooo, I came up with the idea of Recipes on demand!
Meaning I will only describe recipes you ask me to!
But don’t worry! I will keep posting as before, sharing with you great moments with fantastic food and fantastic wine 🙂
And if you want to make something you see you only have to drop me a comment here and ask for it!
As per the wine, I’m afraid I can’t give you the recipe for it (I wish I could!!!) but if you live around London I can certainly tell you where to look for it 😉

I’ve been telling my boyfriend
I would love to have an impact in people lives…
I’ve been thinking about sharing my love for cooking for a while…
I decided to put these two ingredients together and…start blogging! After all…
we are what we eat
