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: ...

VEGAN SALTED CARAMEL

VEGAN SALTED CARAMEL

Hola amigos!

I hope the weekend is treating you well so far!

I’m so happy it’s finally kinda sunny and warm!!

Big news of the week is that my brother moved in with me for a couple of months. He has already started a new job and his English is improving already. So big hurray for Marco! 

Basically I’m gonna have to be another guinea pig for my recipes and kitchen experiments! Which, as long as they’re as this recipe here for creamy salted caramel, I don’t think it’s gonna be a problem!

AVOCADO/SUN-DRIED TOMATOES HUMMUS

AVOCADO/SUN-DRIED TOMATOES HUMMUS

For now I know that I will bring for sure some avocado hummus I made this morning! It’s like the thousand time I make this (alternatively with the sun-dried tomatoes one!) and I can’t get enough! It’s so yummy and it works well with so many things or to eat just by itself – yes I’m guilty of charge!

If I come home after work and I just need a little snack to keep me going until dinner, I just eat a rice cracker with some of this hummus on top and I’m safe! Ok, let’s say two rice crackers. Maybe three, with some cherry tomatoes on top and that’s it! :)

VEGENAISE - THE GOOD VEGAN MAYONNAISE

VEGENAISE - THE GOOD VEGAN MAYONNAISE

Good morning everyone!

Hope you’re all feeling good and relaxed this Sunday morning.

Yesterday night I was feeling naughty and hungry! It’s a tough time because there are soooo many weddings to attend soon and you know, I don’t want to feel bloated and I want to fit in that summer dress. My goal is to find naughty and tasty recipes but at the same time healthy and not super caloric. The dream. The Holy Grail. The Eight Wonder of the World. You get the point, not easy. Ok but there is a way, if we just start with small things.

Like this vegan mayonnaise! Guys I promise you, it’s hard to notice the difference with a total-fat one.
