Zucchini in garlic, mint and lemon

Thumbnail image for Zucchini in garlic, mint and lemon

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 […]

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 […]

  The other day we had M & m over for supper. Big M stands for my cheerful red headed friend and little m. for her pint size little girl. I made spaghetti and meatballs. Actually, I made the meatballs, bread and salad in advance, knowing that everybody will be hungry after a long day at work and daycare. All […]

Home made Ricotta style cheese

  If I would have known how easy this is to make, I would have made my own Ricotta cheese years ago instead of weekly harassing my grocer to get me some. Seriously, it’s no hassle whatsoever. This cheese was made from a liter of 10% coffee cream that was about to pass date in my […]

6:45 pm Saturday night. I turn to my husband and ask “didn’t we invite K and C for brunch tomorrow morning”? “yes, what of it “? answers he,  seeing no reason to fret over the fact that we  indeed invited people to share our table tomorrow morning, our humble abode is in a complete disarray, […]

Fluffy whole wheat vegan pancakes

  I am not vegan. But that does not mean that I cannot appreciate a good pancake when I sink my teeth into one. This recipe was inspired by my good friend T. She is vegan. She also happens to be tall, blond, slim and witty. Who knows, maybe eating more vegan would shake some […]

Easy vegetable coconut curry soup

  Feel like something different tonight? try this soup. It really lives up to its name. It’s easy, it’s curried, it has coconut milk goodness in it and you can use up almost any vegetable you happen to neglect in the back of your fridge. I always have root vegetables such as carrots, onions, potatoes […]

Rebellious red spaghetti

  This pasta dish breaks all conventions known to good italian cooking. The spaghetti noodles are allowed to cook until soft. They are (lo and behold) broken in half before immersed in boiling water (but don’t tell  my husband), the uncooked, quickie, hassle free sauce is mixed with the pasta and you are NOT to serve it immediately, […]

Daily minutes and cucumber salad

This Friday morning I woke up determined to get back in the saddle. Four weeks of utter chaos (aka “vacation”) left me yearning for some good old routine. The queen of toddlers is back on track, in daycare and away from indulgent grand parents influence, my husband is back at work. Now its up to baby Tom and me […]
