Chicken curry for beginners

30 Mar

Chicken_Curry_1

The book of the Hemsley sisters is still going strong in our kitchen. We have tried several recipes (on the blog here and here) and we continue to discover new fantastic flavours and healthy options. This recipe is a simple take on chicken curry. Not at all complicated, very juicy and a tad spicy. You can serve it with cauliflower rice or brown rice. Either way, you will have a nice balanced natural meal.

The best meatballs in Stockholm

23 Mar

Swedish meatballs_Bakfickan_4We don’t want to be that kind of people who visit a place for the first time and immediately become experts. Nop. That’s not us. But in our very first visit to Stockholm we ate the best meatballs that the city has to offer. We are not exaggerating, we really found the best meatballs. After researching for a while, reading some guides and browsing Twitter (that’s today’s scientific research) we discovered this small place where we realized that IKEA has been fooling us this whole time. Those things you eat when you spend your Saturday buying unnecessary kitchen accessories and cool napkins are not Swedish meatballs.

Chocolate chip cookies bake off

16 Mar

chocolate_chips_cookies_1 Last week we ate a lot of cookies. A LOT. But it was for research, so it’s ok. We wanted to know which super blogger had the most amazing chocolate cookie recipe and so we baked Emily’s and Naomi’s chocolate chip cookies and tested the results afterwards. Oh the things we do for the blog! Welcome to our first bake off!  Continue reading

mmm… Monday! Moroccan chicken stew

9 Mar

Moroccan Chicken Stew_4This Moroccan chicken stew is absolutely delicious. We might even say that it’s the best recipe we have ever shared with you on the blog. Yes, my mum’s pizza recipe was fantastic. Yes, this salad was pretty epic. Yes, this burger was amazing. And what can I say about my favourite pasta? Outstanding. But this juicy, spicy chicken stew is just perfect. It melts in your mouth, the sauce is mouth-watering and it tastes even better the day after. We found the recipe in the Hemsley and Hemsley book, which has become one of our favorite cookbooks. Of course, we’ve made a few tiny changes like we did for this other recipe from the book.

mmm… Monday! Banana bread

2 Mar

Banana_bread_2Banana bread is perfect for long train trips, long hours at the office and long weekends. It’s moist, it’s delicious and has fruit on it, which obviously means it’s light and healthy (it’s not, but let’s pretend). This recipe can’t be easier so we dare you to bake it just once. We’re sure you won’t be able to resist to bake it at least once a week! Continue reading

mmm… Monday! Matsuri, Seville

16 Feb

Matsuri_sevilla_5These gyozas are the best gyozas we’ve ever eaten. And oddly enough we found them in a small japanese restauran in Seville. While Seville is famous because of its traditional Spanish cuisine and, of course, tapas, during the last five years the city has developed a nice taste for international menus. Being La Alameda Seville’s hippest district, there was no better location for Matsuri, a sophisticated yet cosy Japanese restaurant (where you can eat these amazing gyozas). Continue reading

mmm… Monday! Roast carrots and avocado Winter salad

9 Feb

winter_salad_11This weekend has been all about nesting and, even though we wanted to indulge into all the junk food in the world, we have managed to stay quite healthy-ish (apart from the occasional chocolate debacle on Sunday). However, we’ve still had some delicious dishes on our table. This wonderful warm salad feels like a treat although is full of vitamins, proteins and nutrients. It’s our take on one of Jamie Oliver’s recipes from this book. Our version is a little bit lighter than the original because we have avoided the bread and the soured cream and have added a little bit of protein in the form of crispy grilled chicken. Here you have the recipe…

mmm… Monday! Gorm’s, Copenhagen

2 Feb

Gorms_1We discovered Gorm’s a while ago while strolling around Torvehallerne. The pizzas looked delicious: super thin crust and fresh natural toppings. So last Satuday  we were delighted to bump into their restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen, Nyhavn. In the middle of a little snow storm, the warm candle light, the scent of oregano and the prospect of a nice glass of rosé seemed heaven on Earth. Continue reading

mmm… Monday! Broccoli, pea and basil soup

19 Jan

Broccoli_soup_4A couple of months ago we bought the famous healthy recipe book by the Hemsley sisters, The art of eating well, and since then we have tried some of their recipes in an attempt to eat more greens and step up our healthy lifestyle game. Well, the recipes are surprisingly good! They cauliflower crust pizza has become our absolute favourite dinner treat and the courgetti puttanesca are simply amazing. We are not going to lie: real pasta and cheesy pizza are better. But these options are healthier and they taste remarkably good as well. So, since it’s all about balance… why not including these better for you versions in your weekly menu? And then you can have chocolate for pudding. That’s what balanced diet means, right?

mmm… Monday! Bosco de Lobos, Madrid

12 Jan

Bosco_de_lobos_1We had read about Bosco de Lobos in a couple of blogs and magazines. We were initially attracted to it by its beautiful decor and all the fuzz that it had created in Madrid’s gastro scene, but to be honest we doubted about its cuisine. You know the drill: new fancy resturant, with a focus on design, lots of shots in all the right Instagram accounts, international vibes… We actually expected a nice but not impressive meal. Well, we, foodie snobs sometimes, we were totally wrong. The food was utterly delicious. So much as to come back twice in a couple of weeks.
