Risotto with mushrooms

Mushrooms-risotto-8Some time ago I already made a review for risotto with mushrooms, then was from a Jamie Oliver recipe, this time is an oven risotto from Karin Luiten. The good thing from this one is that is easier because you finish in the oven with all the bouillon, so no need to add spoon by spoon, the taste is still fantastic. In her book she has 4 kind of oven risotto, good idea to try with different vegetables. Easy and simple to follow.  (more…)

Grilled Vegetables

Roasted-Vegetables-4

Sometimes I hear people saying that eat vegetarian is boring, well that’s absolutely not true. I am not vegetarian, I like to eat meat or fish sometimes, but at home we eat for sure a few times a week no meat or fish at all and it is a very colorful and healthy meal then. If you grilled your vegetables they taste fantastic and they are a bomb of vitamins. You can grill I think all vegetables, it is easy and delicious and you can made endless combinations.  (more…)

Chicken with Chorizo and Potatoes

Spanish-Chicken-3I love dishes that are going into the oven, they are normally slow cooking and with fantastic taste. In the winter is of course one of my favourite things to eat.

Minestrone Soup

Minestrone-6Minestrone soup is a fantastic meal because you can put anything you can find at home, from carrots to peppers, celery, leek, any vegetable is good.

Cypriot Lamb Dish

Lamb-casserole-8A couple of weeks ago I decided to make this dish from Annabel Langbein, it was the first time for me to cook pastinak and it was perfect, according to my family maybe too much carrots, but I still think that it was good, I adapted a bit the ingredients and the quantity to make sure we had enough food to be able to eat twice, actually the second time taste even better, all the spices have done their extra work. (more…)

Lasagna

Lasagne-8Lasagna is one of those meals that I have tried many times, from books, magazines or websites, but somehow never seemed to work the way it should be, always just too moist. Finally after searching and testing I found my own way to get the perfect lasagna, the secret is just to cook the sauce as long as possible, that way the liquids will evaporate and you will get what you are looking for. So this is my recipe, of course you can change the ingredients to your own taste, just remember to make sure the sauce is not too runny. (more…)

This Spanish Casserole I learned years ago from my mum, but every time I make is surprisingly delicious, I forget that something so simple and easy to make is just fantastic. The secret is the kind of meat you use and the freshness of all the ingredients, all natural flavors come together to a great meal. (more…)
