No, my camera is not back yet, thank you very much. You don’t really want to cook in this heat do you? I was about to post this tasty meatball soup recipe but then took one look at the pictures of the steamy bowl and gave it up. It’s just too hot outside for eating […]

Quick and easy Chili Con Carne

Please take a moment to notice the absence of my beloved SLR camera. This pic was taken with a point and shoot replacement which is, well, convenient. Shiver. This post has been lying in my dusty drafts folder for nearly a week now. This is how long it took me to temporarily incapacitate my obsessive perfectionist evil […]

A slap on the wrist, anyone?

Please don’t bother, I have already slapped myself on the wrist several times. I has been, what? two whole weeks since my last post? I can always come up with this lousy excuse, telling you that I have been on the road with 2 children under the age of three, gulping about 4000 kilometers. Unfortunately, that would be […]

Simple and flavorful Bruschetta

I was hesitating if to post this recipe due to it’s simplicity, but then I remembered that sometimes, the simplest, most basic of recipes are the hardest to find out there in the Wild Wild West (oh, wait,  is that the World Wide Web?). No fancy duck confit here folks. Bruschetta is a great way to […]

Stay tuned for baked Falafels

On the menu today, baked falafel! My husband nicely asked for meatballs. Of course I said no. It is W-A-R-M outside! I can’t digest meat when it’s warm (unless it is made on the grill and not by me). So tonight I’m making falafels, full of lemon and parsley. YUM. Stay with me, hopefully I […]

In case I don’t mention it often enough, we live in a very remote location. The asphalt stops at our village. You will have to take either a plane or a boat to continue norther bound. The nearest decent size shopping center is over a 1000 kilometers away (sniff). Our (un)fortunate remoteness from civilization brings us closer […]

Savory Swiss chard and cheese muffins

I’ve just passed the last hour of my life going up and down a flight of stairs, coercing an almost hyperventilating, super excited, I-just learned-how-to-stand-up 9-months-old and a defying, rebellious, mind boggling(ly) stubborn 2 year old to retire their act and go to bed. When I enter the room, they both resentfully pipe down, only to resume […]

Quicky Microwave Orange Marmalade

Do you like orange marmalade? the bitter-sweet tangy kind with real pieces of orange peel in it? So do I.  Sooo good on a fresh slice of bread, even better if you sneak in some butter. How about sugar? lots of industrial, processed, white sugar? do you like that? oh, and some Fructose (another name for […]

Lovely Quinoa Salad

I came up with this little beauty in a time of need. I NEEDED Tabouleh. Now, not later. The problem was that I had no tomatoes. Or cucumbers. My Bulgar jar was kinda on the low side too. I wasn’t looking good for the Tabouleh, I can tell you that. Happily, I did possess the […]
