Pork Chops with Carrots, Wilted Spinach & Mustard Dressing

Pork Chops with Carrots, Wilted Spinach & Mustard Dressing

Right at this moment, when I’m typing these words, the weather outside went from sunny to rainy in just a few minutes, but that rain had something magic in it, the way the drops were falling over my lush garden transpose me directly into a totally different mood about the recipe I’d like to share with you today. These pork chops with carrots, wilted spinach and mustard dressing are definitely…

Cori's Thai Curry Chicken

I’m definitely in a spicy food mood these days and almost everything I cook has to have some chili traces in it. I am still wondering how I didn’t add some chili in my coffee yet, but perhaps you know some spicy coffee recipes and you could share, maybe I’ll enjoy them. After a quick visit at the Asian store next to my house I am now fully equipped with…

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…

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.…

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…

Salata de cartofi dulci cu branza feta si nuci

salata de cartofi dulci cu branza feta si nuci

Incerc in fiecare seara, cand pregatesc pranzul pentru a doua zi la birou, sa ma surprind cu salate inedite, amestecand ingrediente pe care, de cele mai multe ori, le am la indemana, sau pe care le procur cu efort minim de la supermarket-ul de la coltul blocului. Pentru salata de cartofi dulci cu feta si nuci ai nevoie doar de 4 ingrediente principale (salata, cartofi dulci, branza feta, nuci) si condimente…

Buddha bowl cu bulgur, avocado si ciuperci pleurotus

buddha bowl cu bulgur, avocado si ciuperci pleurotus

Buddha bowl sau bolul lui Buda nu este altceva decat un castron plin cu mancare, insa atat de plin incat are forma rotunjoara a burtii lui Buda 🙂 Si bineinteles ca nu vorbim de orice fel de mancare, o galeata de aripioare de la KFC nu s-ar incadra la categoria buddha bowl, nici macar buddha bucket. Bolul lui Buda inseamna mancare pura, cat poti tu de organica, savurata in recunostinta. Asa ca…
