Parmesan and caramelised onion tart

8 Feb

Caramelized_Onion_Tart_3This is our take on a recipe that we found in this book. Oddly enough the recipe was uncompleted in the book (we assumed there was a printing error) but we saw this mistake as an opportunity to adapt the recipe and make a few changes. The result is a rich, creamy, salty tart that is, however, surprisingly light. Continue reading

We survived the Kayla Itsines’ BBG

26 Jan

perfectIf you don’t live under a rock, you’ll know Kayla Itsines. Together with her boyfriend she has created a series of guides – the Bikini Body Guides – that are supposed to take you from coach potato to beach babe. So last October we decided to give them a try. Just look at the hashtag #bbgprogress on Instagram and you will be, at least, intrigued. Well, after completing the first round (there are three of them) I have my own thoughts about this famous fitness programm. Continue reading

Freccia nel Cielo, Cortina d’Ampezzo

22 Jan

Cortina_D'Ampezzo_Day1_34Following the recommendations of our friends at the Rosapetra Spa Resort, we decided to spent the day exploring the mountains. The slow-paced way, of course. That involved long walks, sun, lots of pasta and, of course, thousands of pictures. Continue reading

Rosapetra Spa Resort, Cortina d’Ampezzo

14 Jan

Hotel_Rosapetra_Cortina_D'Ampezzo_6The four days we spent at Rosapetra Spa Resort were the happiest days we’d had in a very, very long time. That happiness that only fresh, clean air, infinite powerful views, silent afternoons and calm dinners under soft, warm light can give. We can’t be objective about this resort because we will remember it forever as one of the most happiest places on Earth for us. The day we left we were profoundly relaxed, serene, rosy cheeked and determined to come back. Continue reading

Post-holidays glow

8 Jan

Face_Mask_1After our stay in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Madrid and Sevilla, Germany has welcomed us with temperatures of -16ºC. You can say that our skin has been and is suffering. Add the lack of sleep, the flights, the holidays, the big meals … and you have two dull faces fighting to look good with the help of makeup but actually looking like this instead. So in order to make things right and, you know, #newyearsresolutions, we’re trying to stick with a nice weekly ritual that involves these two masks.

La Corte del Lampone, Cortina d’Ampezzo

6 Jan

Corte_del_Lampone_1First post of the year! Food related, obviously. Today we wanted to share with you the first of the articles that we are going to dedicate to our Winter getaway in Cortina d’Ampezzo. With our trip to Spain and the holidays in between we still hadn’t had the time to sort all the pictures and memories! Cortina d’Ampezzo is a little village located in a beautiful valley in the Dolomites. We spent a few wonderful days of long, frosty morning walks, afternoons at the spa and incredible dinners at La Corte del Lampone, the restaurant of the Rosapetra Spa Resort, the hotel we chose for our stay. As you can imagine we had a fantastic time… and beyond delicious dinners. That’s why we’ve decided to start this little Cortina special with the restaurant that made us so very happy and was one of the highlights of our trip. Continue reading

Happy 2016!

31 Dec

New_Year_2016I want this new year to be the year of changes. I want us to be daring and full of energy and I want us to leave fear behind. We are terrified of changes but we are brave too, so we will fight for the life we want. That’s our goal for 2016. And that’s what we want for all of you: live the life you want to live!

Here’s to a healthy year, full of love and laughter!


The slow pace
