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…

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…

Apple, kohlrabi and blue cheese salad

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…

Cori’s Easter recipes

Cori's Easter Recipes

I still can’t decide which of these two holidays I love the most: Easter or Christmas. The spring flavors and bright colors, or the homey and warm feeling that you get from winter holidays? I guess it doesn’t really matter as long as family is there with you and you can enjoy spending time, chatting till midnight and have a feast together. Every year for Easter, our tradition at home is…

Burrito zucchini boats

burrito zucchini boats

I like burritos! Spicy, juicy burritos, but this is a totally different..boat with the same taste. You know that feeling when you are craving something but you’re either too lazy to go and buy, or it’s too late (but this is not something that you should do anyway, because we don’t eat late at night, riiight?). Well if this happens, burrito zucchini boats are the safe escape for your (mine) cravings.…

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…

Middle-eastern style cabbage with flavored butter potatoes

Middle-eastern style cabbage with flavored butter potatoes

Facing a small dilemma on how to cook a fresh cabbage on a sunny Sunday, I decided that the best recipe would go just by following my intuition and my moods about spices and tastes from that moment. 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…
