• Rice Salad with Gaea Green Olive Tapenade, Lentils and Herbs

    A couple of weeks ago I received these fantastic products Gaea sent me to review. So the other day I decided it was time to cook something with one of the products. I used the Gaea oil in my salads but had to see how the green olive tapenade tasted especially because hubby is such a green olives lover. Check out how small this little jar is: However is so full of flavour and totally ok for the whole dish – a full pan of salad. Anyway here is the recipe and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I did: 4.0 from 1 reviews Rice…

    Spring Salad with Italian Dressing

    I am sure I mentioned that I am now trying to change the way I eat in order to change the way I look. Only lost just a bit over a stone in the last two months but I am on the right path.

I am…

  • Spinach salad and omelette

    My husband and I really enjoy camping. When we become parents we decided that we will take our kids camping too. Holidays are so much better than being stuck in a hotel room. A very good alternative to camping are the Alfresco holidays though. I look at it as the half way between camping and hotels. A much better alternative actually because you can stay up while your kids are sleeping. I find that when we stay at a hotel my daughter is either wending up staying up too late or us as parents have to go early to sleep . Anyway, the reason I’m writing you today is because…
