Spanish Rutabaga Noodles with Olives

This, my friends, is yet another wonderful dish made possible thanks to the amazing Spiralizer! If you’ve never heard of it before, let me explain. It’s a kitchen tool that turns vegetables into noodles. Pretty fantastic, eh? You could probably make vegetable noodles with a mandoline or a vegetable peeler but the Spiralizer makes the task much […]

Cauliflower and Broccoli Tabbouleh

One of my favorite cooking magazine is a French one called Saveurs. They always have stunning photographs and interesting, creative recipes. As I was browsing the latest issue on my iPad, I came across this cauliflower and broccoli tabbouleh and was very intrigued. The next day, I was trying it out and…wow, it completely exceeded my expectations! Given the ingredients, […]

Baked Potatoes with Smoked Salmon and Greek Yogurt

thumbnail image

To me, potatoes are truly comfort food because I only eat some rarely (much to my boyfriend’s despair!) and most of the time, there’s an oven involved. And oven means warmth. And because I’m always cold when the thermometer goes below 20C (a68F), well…I love them and found them very comforting. So you take an oven-baked potato, you […]

Grilled Eggplant with Pomegranate and Feta

Please friends, give me just one minute to get my head together because I love this recipe so much I don’t know where to start. Maybe eating this salad/appetizer/call-it-as-you-want-dish as I type is not the best way to focus but…I don’t want to wait, I want it NOW. Obsessed, much? Mmm maybe. I’m trying really hard not to […]

Each month, a blogger is secretly assigned another blogger and chooses a recipe to make. On reveal day (today for my group!), all our posts go up at the same time and we […]

Oven Baked Crispy Chicken Wings

Food doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious, and these oven baked crispy chicken wings are here to prove my point! Only a few commun ingredients are needed to make the tasty marinade: honey, olive oil, lime, ground ginger and hot pepper sauce. Let the chicken wings bath overnight or for at least one hour and you’ll […]

Vietnamese Noodle Salad with Tahini Dressing

thumbnail image

Vietnamese food is one of my very favorite things to eat out: it’s fresh, bursting with flavors and relatively healthy compared to other dining options. Which means I can go more often! 99% of the time, I will order a bun bo: a dish made of rice vermicelli topped with raw carrot, cucumber, fried shallots, peanuts and cooked beef, served […]

Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers

As I’m typing this post, Sydney’s weather is out of control really. Since yesterday, a massive storm has taken over the city and its surrounding region: it’s been raining heavily for two days non-stop. But what’s really impressive is the wind. The gusts are so strong I swear I could fly if I tried. Well, ok maybe not, but I’m […]

Quick and Easy Hazelnut Sardines Rillettes

thumbnail image

Being more of a savoury girl, I’ve always loved appetizers (more than desserts!) and rillettes are on my top 10 list. Any kind of rillettes, really. I love the ones made with meat or fish. I’ve already shared a quick and easy recipe for salmon rillettes on the blog, and now it’s time for another fish: sardines! […]
