Breakfast Inspiration – Broccamole Toast With Dukkah

Breakfast Inspiration - Broccamole Toast With Dukkah

Broccamole is definitely a keeper in my morning and snacks routines. I am going through a breakfast crisis, better say, breakfast inspiration crisis. I am a morning person and I like to enjoy breakfast every time possible. These days it feels like no cereal bowl, no smoothies, no tomatoes and cheese (because that’s what we eat in Romania in the summer 🙂 ), no eggs are good enough to take…

Summer Halloumi and Roasted Peppers

Lazy summer days are just around the corner, and I don’t want to miss any 🙂 I guess nothing compares with a breezy afternoon spent on the beach, ideally a Greek island beach 🙂 where you can enjoy fresh seafood and grilled Halloumi cheese with a cold glass of white wine. But if this is just a wild dream, you can always bring the summer feeling to your home, directly into your…

Mediterranean fennel and orange salad

This mediterranean fennel and orange salad is becoming a really must have in my summer diet as the weather is slowly starting to warm up. Fennel is definitely an unique veggie, you can either love it or hate it, I don’t think you can go in between with this one, especially if you don’t use it very often in your traditional cuisine. Very popular in the meditarranean countries in Europe, like Italy,…

I don’t think anyone can argue that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, gives you energy (a better one than a strong cup of coffee) and sets you in the mood to accomplish the important tasks you have until noon. I’ve always been a morning person and I’m never living home without having breakfast, even though this means I’ll have to get up really early or prepare…

apple, kohlrabi and blue cheese salad

Tomorrow we celebrate Earth Day! What other way to honor Mother Nature, other than be, at least for one day, more conscious about what and how we eat? I’m a strong believer in a clean eating diet, in buying food locally and from suitable sources, in avoiding processed food, in not wasting the meals and the groceries, and the list could still go on. April 22, 2017 is the best day to reflect more about the…

Spicy chicken with blood orange and avocado salsa

spicy chicken with blood orange and avocado salsa

Moving (temporarily) to Bavaria brought me many things. A stunning city to live in, incredibly good bread, tasty beer, not that fancy cuisine, but I can live with that, and lots of secret ingredients that were quite hard to find back home in Romania. I’ve been craving blood oranges for quite some time now and wanted them in my recipes ASAP. After cooking for the third time in a row the roasted chicken…

So I got to it, a yummy and incredibly tasty middle-eastern style cabbage. In Romania we are used to cooking the cabbage either by stuffing its leaves with a mix of meat…
