Spinach pastry Snails

Salut !

This week on Monday after I finished my classes and was on my way back home, I was day dreaming about what I would have for dinner that evening.

And what a dilemma it is to choose what to cook , because lets face it if you try to cook something fancy it’s time-consuming and not exactly healthy for your bank account.

So I took a different approach and chose to make something wholesome, quick to make, on a budget and delicious at the same time. And so it was a cold day I thought well why not make something pastry based.

So I made something called Spinach pastry Snails, which can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. Watch , make and enjoy 🙂

Paella

Hola !

It’s been a long time since I posted anything, but since I got back from my summer holidays recently I thought I would  keep the Summer spirit going.

Even though it’s October and cold, but let’s face it Mediterranean food always brings a little sunshine to our lives even with this awful weather.

So I had a little get together this week and made Paella,  in attempt to raise everyone’s spirits and keep the holiday mode for as long as possible.

I love Paella it’s not very time-consuming , it’s great for sharing with friends, it’s healthy and most importantly delicious.

Take a look at the video, make the Paella, share it and enjoy 🙂   

 

Paris new year’s eve Vlog

Salut guys , hope 2014 has started well for you , and life is treating you well.
So I just thought I would share with you a little clip from my new year’s eve in Paris.

Overall it was a great christmas break for me, I did a lot of french patisserie eating during my week in Paris.

On new year’s eve , me and the rest of the family went to the Eiffel Tower to watch a firework display, but unfortunately there wasn’t any for this year :(.

The good news is that it was still a magical experience , because lets face it the beauty of the Eiffel tower is mesmerizing with or without the fireworks.  Enjoy 😉

Christmas Vlog

Hey

This is my last post for 2013 , just thought I would leave a little message.

I will be going to Paris to visit my family and spend Christmas and New Year there , so I am looking forward to enjoying some family time and taking a break from university work …yeeeey lol.

So whatever your plans are , I hope you have fun :).

Couscous

I couldn’t possibly make this whole blog without including the famous North African dish Couscous in it.

Being North African it’s impossible to a go whole month without it. And I am sure any North African people out there will agree with me.

I remember eating this dish since I was a kid, in my family it’s a tradition until this day that every Sunday the whole family gets together to eat it.

It doesn’t matter if you are living in the North , East , South or West , you have to make the effort to come over , it’s a bit like Christmas dinner , but imagine that happening every single weekend.

I personally love this dish as it’s so delicious, now I know I said I will always make my recipes not time-consuming, but you might find that this one is the exception time wise.

But trust me after you sit down to eat it , you might just make it your Sunday tradition too.

Take a look at the video , make it , eat it and Enjoy 🙂 .

Natillas

Natillas

I adore this dessert so creamy and rich in flavour, if you are anything like me and love anything that has cinnamon on it then this is the dessert for you.

The mixture of the vanilla flavour and cinnamon is what really makes this dessert stand out , plus it’s easy to make and for a small amount of money, you can make enough to last a week.

I mean who wouldn’t want to come home after a long day tired , to find this delicious sugar gem hidden in the fridge.

Take a look at this video and get making and enjoying 🙂

Zabaglione Trifle

Zabaglione Trifle

This dessert has got to be one of the easiest to make , you can basically do it in 7 minutes no fuss or mess, especially that I had a few friends coming around last weekend .

As I was too busy sorting my other university work out , I completely forgot to make anything so , these trifles really saved the day , and with the size cups I made them everyone was full by the end.

So here is a little video clip to show you how it’s made and hopefully it will save your life , if you end up in a situation like mine.

Penne Rigate and meatballs

Pasta is a dish I could never get bored with , mainly because it comes is so many different styles and shapes and tastes that I still have so much to discover.

When I was younger my favourite was the spaghetti , I would ask my mum to make it every single week for me because I liked it that much.

But as I got older I started liking the Penne Rigate more , mainly because I found it easier to cook than spaghetti. My spaghetti would either come out to under cooked or over cooked.

But with the Penne Rigate I have finally found the balance , so I made a short video showing you how I make it.

Enjoy 🙂

Spanish food vs British food – Interview

Hola ! , this week I had the opportunity to interview someone who is familiar with both the Spanish and British food culture.

Her name is Heather Perez ,59 , a teacher ,who is originally British but lives in Madrid.

She has been living in Spain for an amazing 37 years , so if there is anyone that would know a bit about Spanish food , it would definitely be her.

She was attracted to the beautiful country after visiting a friend , and after enjoying her time there she decided to move permanently.

Off course she said the weather ,lively people and culture made her fall  in love even more with it.

Some of her favourite Spanish dishes include , Paella and Tortilla , and her British favourites are Broth , fish without the chips and Mushy peas.

Take a look at the interview and enjoy 🙂

Orange zest Brioche

This is one of those recipes that are super useful if you have a lot of friends and family visiting or university house mates that are feeling hungry.

My version is the large brioche which is enough to feed a family instead of the mini you usually see in the super market, because after all sharing is caring.

And you don’t want to waste your time making small individual ones when you can make a large one , that will taste just as good.

But if you are feeling like you have a lot of time on your hands , then go ahead and make the small version of this.

Now I used Orange zest to make mine, but if it’s not your thing you can replace it with whatever you want.
