Orange-Basil Cocktail

One of the many reasons that I love being married to my husband, it’s that he prepares some of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. This is one refreshing and tasty cocktail he created some time ago. So easy to prepare, you don’t need any previous bartender knowledge and you […]

 

Smoked salmon Canapés

These are some of my favourite Canapés to prepare when we have a small party at home. They can also be eaten as Appetizers for a lovely dinner. The combination of the lemony cream and smoked salmon is so good, that you would like to eat them all.  

 

Roasted chicken legs with honey sauce

I’ve always loved chicken, specially roasted. As a familiy it was our go-to food to eat on a picnic. What it makes this recipe more special than just a normal roasted chicken, it’s the honey sauce. It caramelises the chicken legs in a beautiful way and the flavours are just […]

I love cooking Mac ‘n’ Cheese. It’s my favourite thing to eat if I’m alone at home. It’s easy, yummy and you can prepare a big portion and have leftovers so you don’t need to cook for some days. The best part: it tastes even better on the next day. […]
