A refreshing fruit salad

A refreshing fruit salad

Fruit salad is a recipe if we can call it a recipe, that I connect to my father. He loves it and often prepares it to himself. I don’t. Sometimes I buy ready-to-eat ones while in Brazil, but usually, I eat the fruit separately. But […]

A delicious lemon & poppy seed cake for breakfast

When I saw this lemon & poppy seed cake recipe, I was tempted to try it. Then my husband came home with a bag full of fresh organic Italian lemons, and I had no more doubts :-). I love fresh lemons. I love their aroma and love […]

Quinoa and chocolate brittle

Quinoa and chocolate brittle

I had never think about quinoa and chocolate brittle. I eat quinoa regularly, but I had never thought about combining it with sweet ingredients. When I saw this recipe on halfbakedharvest.com, I couldn’t ignore it. As I’ve written in other posts, I only post recipes I […]

Baked peaches

I prepared these baked peaches inspired by a Gordon Ramsay’s recipe. I say inspired because I had half of the ingredients at home and so I adapted it, with great results. Baked peaches with a gourmet taste. I decided to prepare these baked peaches the […]

Peach in syrup without sugar

Peach in syrup without sugar

Peach in syrup without sugar looks like a contradiction. But I couldn’t explain it otherwise. We’re talking about peach in syrup prepared with no sugar added, neither any other sweetener. As soon as I discovered this way to prepare peach syrup without sugar (I did […]

Heavenly Salted Caramel

Heavenly Salted Caramel

I first heard about salted caramel two years ago. I spent some days in Paris with my sister and it seemed that there was salted caramel everywhere. My sister owns a catering service in Rio, and so we were two food passionate in Paris. From bistros to food […]
