Roasted Sweet Potatoes Salad With Honey Mustard Dressing

Roasted Sweet Potatoes Salad With Honey Mustard Dressing

Winter is definitely around the corner, or almost already here if you look at the temperatures outside, and this, inevitably takes me back 2 years ago, when I first started writing on this blog. Boy, what a journey! Laughter, frustration, fingerlicious food, failed recipes, and incredible passion I put in each recipe which I wrote or picture that I took. I am now very grateful I learned so much about…

Roasted Squash With Maple Syrup, Cinnamon & Nutmeg

Roasted Squash With Maple Syrup, Cinnamon & Nutmeg

Can you ever think about something more autumnal than some roasted squash with cinnamon and nutmeg? Exactly, I am talking about that warm and cozy flavor that spreads all over your house in a Sunday afternoon.   Along with all the nice colored leaves, crispy morning air and lots of tasty grapes, autumn brings with it abundance of squash, just ready to be enjoyed as a snack or as a…

Homemade Pickled Veggies

Homemade Pickled Veggies

It’s that time of the year when I am craving for some pickled veggies to eat with my breakfast omelette or some roasted potatoes, and I can’t help but thinking of those that my mom makes every autumn: crunchy, with a pinch of spiciness which makes them perfect as a snack too. Autumn really hit us, here in Munich, and I have to say I love it. I love all…

Salata mediteraneana cu ton si naut

Scotocind prin rafturile supermarketului, mi-au cazut in mana niste conserve cu ton si, ce-i drept, nu mai mancasem de mult o salata misto de ton. Chef nu aveam de clasica combinatie, ton, porumb, ceapa si salata verde, asa ca a trebuit sa scotocesc in continuare si alte ingrediente pentru a-mi satisface pofta. Salata mediteraneana cu ton si naut a reusit sa-mi schimbe total ideile despre ce poti face cu o…

Cuscus cu sos de rosii si chimion si hamsie fripta

cuscus cu sos de rosii si chimion si hamsie fripta

Pentru mine hamsie = pestele mic pe care-l mananci vara, pe carton, in balciul din Mamaia. Este imaginea copilariei mele si, oricat de multe retete as incerca avand hamsia ingredientul vedeta, imaginea asta n-as avea cum s-o uit vreodata. Asta mica, hamsia, o fi ea mai putin simandicoasa cand vine vorda de mancaruri cu peste, dar daca o frigi bine pe gratar, poti pune de-un snack, sau chiar de-o saramura dobrogeana de mananci…

Salau la gratar cu salata de cartofi

salata de cartofi cu salau la gratar

Recunosc ca fac parte din categoria care se bucura cand e de stat prin bucatarie, ador sa migalesc farfurii cu mancare sau vreun preparat mai simandicos. Dar mai exista si momente in care de s-ar gati mancarea singura si repede, ar fi ideal. Ei bine, azi a fost un moment din categoria “mi-e foame, vreau ACUM sa mananc”, asa ca n-am avut de ales, am luat repede la curatat cativa cartofi si…

Dorada la tigaie in sos provensal

Dorada si Provence, aveau de la bun inceput toate semnele ca vor face “tigaie” buna impreuna. De altfel, Provence este si in topul listei de calatorii, iar asta  nu doar pentru campurile de lavanda si peisajele rupte din basme, ci mai ales pentru bucataria mediteraneana cu arome puternice si atat de expresive. Ramai cu mine sa-ti mai povestesc despre deliciosul sos provensal, care pana acum mi se pare cam de neegalat cand vine vorba despre cum sa mai…

Chili Garlic and Parsley Horse Mackerel

stavrid la cuptor cu sos picant de patrunjel si usturoi

I’d eat these lil’ guys, along with the fresh anchovies, without stopping, in fact this is what I actually did with the full baking tray, and you can’t blame me. In my hometown, Constanta, if you didn’t eat at least once every summer, lots of fried, grilled fish, with chili garlic and parsley dressing, polenta, and so on, there may be something fishy with you..just kidding 🙂 Now is full…

Midii ca la mine acasa

midii ca la mine acasa

In cazul meu, vara cel putin, nu exista vizita acasa la mare in care sa nu incropesc o portie zdravana de midii picante in sos de vin, sau midii ca la mine acasa cum imi place mie sa le spun. Pentru mine se contureaza un fel de tablou de vara din care nu-mi place neam sa mai ies, zile de plaja, seri racoroase la Manarola pe terasa, mese intinse cu preparate fel…
