29 Sep

snickers_muffin_5
I’ve been wanting to bake this recipe for a long time. Snikers are P.’s  favorite chocolate bar and I love baking muffins so I knew it was going to be a success. Now, I’m writing this post with a little bit of discomfort after eating way too many muffins. Auch. So, if you prepare them be aware: they can be addictive and it has consequences!

mmm… Monday! Tagliatelle ai funghi porcini

22 Sep

tagliatelle_funghi_2This is a simple pasta recipe that you can put together in no time and it’s beyond delicious. Authentic comfort food perfect for the new season. We prepared this dish yesterday: the smell of the fungui slowly cooking in white wine and the sound of the rain against the windows made our kitchen feel like Autumn. Whether you want to entertain your friends or family with a delightful recipe or treat yourself on a lonely rainy Sunday, you should try this beautiful pasta recipe: the strong flavour of the funghi against the smooth buttery pasta is simply exquisite.

Today there are no food pictures. How come will you ask… it’s mmm…Monday! Well, today it’s all about mystery. In Amsterdam we enjoyed one of the funniest, more exciting dinners of our lives. But we can’t show you any pictures or give you much more information because it took place in a secret kitchen!

8 Sep

gateau_basque_2
What a better way to start the week than enjoying a decadent rich chocolate dessert? We found this chocolate gâteau basque recipe in one of Julie Andrieu books and I can say it’s the best chocolate cake I’ve ever baked. The texture will surprise you, a chewy pastry and  a creamy fudgy ganache with an intense chocolate flavour and a touch of cinnamon.

25 Aug

azafran_2
This grilled baby artichoke and asparagus salad with shrimp and Saffron Aioli requires a little bit of work, but it’s absolutely delicious. It’s a fabulous way to transition between Summer fresh salads and Autumn comfort food.  You can find the original recipe in this book, but we’ve just made a few changes to make it a litle bit easier… because we are lazy sometimes!

mmm… Monday! Orecchiette with home made tomato sauce and sopressa vicentina

18 Aug

orecchiette_with_sopressa_3This is the kind of recipe we usually prepare (or should we say improvise?) during a lazy rainy Sunday. You will need just a few basic ingredients and no measures, no rush…basically no rules. Just a little bit of nice music while you prepare it and lots of love for home made slow cooked food.

mmm… Monday! Bar El Tomate, Madrid

11 Aug

restaurante_tomate_1
When we visit Madrid we always meet our friend A. for lunch. She knows the best places to enjoy really (but really) good Spanish food. Last Summer she took us to Mercado de la Reina, which is now one of our favourite spots in Madrid, and this years she introduced us to the wonders of Bar El Tomate. This restaurant is not new, in fact we wanted to try it for a long time. But when we got A’s sign of approval, we knew the lunch was going to be fantastic. Continue reading

Chicken caesar cornets

Chicken Caesar Cornets_3

We’ve been eating these cornets almost every night since we decided to try the recipe. They are super easy to prepare… and that’s exactly what we want after a long day at the office, a spinning class and a super long phone call with our mothers.  This is more or less a salad in a wrap. So it’s healthy but has that naughty fast food feel to it.
