Being a vegetarian in Argentina

Well, there is a challenge for you! Being a food-loving vegetarian in Argentina. Since becoming a vegetarian some 14 years ago, I have travelled all around the world and never once found it very difficult to eat decent vegetarian meals. I didn’t experience any difficulties in the food department while travelling through Kenya, Bolivia, Chili, …

A different kind of Christmas pudding

In my previous post, I promised to share this recipe for sticky toffee pudding with you. This was a yummie dessert and a perfect ending for our Christmas dinner.

We decided to take it easy this year for the Holidays. Our parents live both in the far north and far south of the country (we are in the middle). Last year, we spend most of Christmas travelling from one to the other. Not this year! We spend December 25 and 26 at my parents …

Mango curry with chickpeas and cucumber

Cucumber is one of those vegetables that I do not much care for. I don’t necessarily dislike them, but find them just kind of bland and boring. Some while ago, The Boyfriend gave me this book with information on all kinds of vegetables, fruits, vitamins, etcetera. Stating pros and cons of all sorts of foods. …

Very Berry Chutney

My bag of veggies actually also contains 2 different kinds of fruit each week. But I guess I mostly see that as an extra and don’t really see it as anything special. My main focus sofar has always been on the veggies. That is also why I am thinking of switching to the vegetable only …

Cooking for guests

I love cooking! But not so much cooking for just me. That is why I love having The Boyfriend around on the weekends. And I love girlfriends who invite themselves over for dinner, which is what happened last week 🙂 However, I am sort of a control freak and perfectionist. So whenever someone comes over …

Another World Food Café Hit

Ready for a (somewhat) adventurous dish? My BFF was visiting for a weekend and I suggested making this. She did not dare though and opted for the vegetable quiche instead. So, be prepared for this one 😉 This turned out to be a somewhat non-conventional, but absolutely yummie dish. I especially liked the combination of …
