    My new discovery

    One of my new year resolutions was to start using more make-up. I failed it straight away on the 1st of January. But well…You see before i met my husband i use to put make up on every day for work and then more make-up if i was going on in a club. These days i can’t really be bothered for work and it’s been more than a few years since i last stepped into a club. Even when i use to use make-up i never really like wearing lipstick. I just found it sticky and use to end up eating it quite quickly. I probably had around 2-3 lipsticks…

    My take on Foccacia

    This Saturday I decided to try and cook Foccacia. Now you my Italians friends out there don’t judge my take on it.

I just wrote he recipe in one of my diaries and I just thought that Saturday will be the day when I will just try it. So here is what you need: – 7 g. Dry yeast – 500 g. Flour – 2 tbsp. salt – 250 ml. Warm water – 6 tbsp. olive oil – 1 tbsp or more of dried thyme Preparation is very easy. All you…

    Chicken roast and rice a la slow cooker

    We all like roasted chicken don’t we? Yes I love it too! But when you are trying to lose weight and be healthy a roasted chicken in the oven might not be helpful. So in my way to try and cook healthy and quickly prepare without having to be at home is always to turn to my slow cooker. It is true even if I bought it about 5 years ago I didn’t really cooked enough using the slow cooker. So when hubby comeback home from Sainsbury with a chicken I thought I should use my slow cooker to roast it. Preparing it didn’t take very long. All I had…

    Aubergine spread

    This Aubergine spread – in Romanian Zacusca de vinete – is cooked in big quantities at the end of the summer. I remember that my grandmother use to make around 20-30 jars to last us all the way through the winter. That was because it was a bit more difficult to find fresh aubergines,tomatoes and peppers through the winter. These days it is a lot easier so I just buy a couple of aubergines and grill them. So for this spread you will need the below ingredients: 2 aubergines 3 peppers – red,yellow and green 1 tin chopped tomatoes 2 large onions 1 clove of garlic Oil Salt Pepper Firstly…

    Bean and tomato spread

    The Romanian translation would be Zacusca de fasole. You see my family – hubby and boogie – don’t like aubergines so even if traditionally this spread is made with them I thought I should give it a try to the beans one. Well my idea came last weekend when we visited our dear Romanian friends for New Year. My friend Ioana had a jar of shop bought zacusca and I loved it! I think I end up eating the whole thing myself. So…I decided to google the recipe and give it a try and cook it. All the Romanian blog sites are full of ideas and different ingredients for this…
