Crispy potato skin chips to dip in a salty and slightly spicy kimchi mayonnaise! The perfect aperitivo before dinner time! ...

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...

GLUTEN-FREE PIADINA with AVOCADO SALSA

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!

I had an amazing time, celebrating my friend’s birthday and enjoying the sun!

We definitely ate a lot of piadinas, which is an Italian flatbread, typical of the Emilia-Romagna reagion. They’re so good and sooo tasty!

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!!!

TOMATO AWESOME SAUCE

TOMATO AWESOME SAUCE

I remember calling my grandma the first weeks I was here in London and asking her for her tomato sauce recipe: “it’s really simple Mara, wash the tomatoes, cook them, blend them and conserve the sauce in a jar with a basil leaves on top”. There, that’s all it requires to make an awesome tomato sauce in Italy. And trust me, my grandma sauce is AWESOME, rich in flavour and it smells like tomatoes! :)

Here I find it really hard to find tomatoes with a strong flavour. Once cooked by themselves they lose their taste and become really watery.

So I decided to add few things: ...

Well now I know that all the things I just listed are possible!!
