(not the usual) CARROT & GINGER SOUP

Hey you guys!

It feels good to be back and to share good stuff with you again! :)

Today's recipe is a soup I've got ready from months ago but never got around to share it and it felt such a shame that even if we're coming to a warmer weather, it is still worth to try and cook it! 

The secret ingredient in what it looks a normal carrot and ginger soup is...drum rolls...

VIDEO RECIPE: TROPICAL GREEN SMOOTHIE

VIDEO RECIPE: TROPICAL GREEN SMOOTHIE

As the happiest and tanned me, I'm preparing this post sipping a Piñada (non alcoholic version of Piña Colada) sitting on a swing on my favourite bar, just 30 seconds from our doorstep. We came here everyday since we arrived one week ago and everybody knows us at this point, so there's a lot of hugging and kissing now :)

Salsa music is playing in the background and a drop of sweat is running through my back and once again I'm feeling blessed and grateful for what I'm living, to have the chance to experience it with my best friend and my lover (which are the same person btw :))

I finally took some courage and I made my first video recipe...

PEAR, WALNUTS and RICOTTA SALAD

Hola chicos! :)

another beautiful day in paradise! We just arrived at the beach of Xpu-Ha but we're in love already! The sand is white, the water is crystal clear and warm, we're lucky enough to be literally 10 seconds walking  from the water and it's also kinda quite, which might be due at the fact this is low season. We have our own kitchen in the house so we can cook our meals and everything is perfect! :)

Buonasera!

Hey guys! Sorry for the absence. As you know I was in Italy for a week, visiting my friend and I didn’t have the chance to post so much! But here I am!

They’re delicious but not super healthy, so here I have a recipe for you, which is a healthy version of the piadina, obviously still really yummy!!!
