Sunday's Kitchen: Mushroom Risotto Sprinkled with Parmesan and Soy Sauce

This week's dish is again inspired by the summer and it is a light, delicious and very easy meal to cook. Apparently, the Mushroom Risotto has become one of my mum's new specialties and she treated us to it, during our holiday (2 Weeks with my Family). 

2 Weeks

Undoubtedly, the good times pass so fast and I am once more typing from the keyboard of my laptop and reminiscing about the heartwarming moments I just recently spent with my family. I am already used to coming and going, but even after 4 years of separation and reuniting with my other half of loved ones, it still feels like the first time. The first time I went away in search of my happiness. And 4 years later I found it, in the smile of my little boy, who just met his mum's family for the first time.

It has been a while, actually it seems like it has been ages, since the last post, but it has been such an eventful week during which we crossed some BIG ticks from the "have to experience list"!

Healing Foods & How To Fight Colds With Natural Remedies

The sunny days are here and so are the colds and flu. One moment it is raining and the next the sun is dazzling.  I can't think of any solutions for dealing with the weather, except to try and make the most of it (maybe escape on holiday to a much warmer place?) However, these drastic changes can not only affect the mood, but also the health.

ElevEase - Beauty Care Made Easy!

"Dear diary,  I am almost 7 months pregnant and I am getting bigger with every other day. I am becoming slower and I find it harder to do some basic daily activities. I bump into everything and my balance and mobility are worse than ever, it is especially difficult when I am in the shower and I am always afraid not to fall. At this stage exfoliating my toes and shaving my legs are probably the last things on my mind… ”

If I was keeping a diary during the pregnancy, I would probably have a chapter like this. I am not pregnant anymore, but I still remember how heavy and hard to move I was feeling. I don't think it will be too much if I compare it to: "like an elephant in a glass shop"!

Something very exciting and completely unplanned happened yesterday - we tried to give Alex his first bites! Well, it looked more like he was biting the spoon, while the milky - rice bits were going everywhere else, but not in his stomach... still, let me tell you all about it.

Sunday's Kitchen: Creamy Tagliatelle with Pancetta and Cherry Tomatoes

Hello on a Sunday! Hope you had a good week! It's Sunday's Kitchen with another lovely savory recipe. I hope you enjoyed the Duck last week! (if you haven't checked yet ----> Chinese 5 Spiced Roasted Duck)  This time the recipe is simple, but very tasty, all you need is few products and half an hour! It's one of my new favourites, everyone loves pasta, so do I, but this pasta is just amazing! I tried it just recently, but Sam has cooked this since a kid with his mum. It's a popular recipe, but he has adapted it to his taste to become what is Creamy Tagliatelle with Pancetta and Cherry Tomatoes. 

Happy International Children's Day!

Hey, do you know that today is International Children's Day? If not, hurry and give your little one a big hug and a kiss! In my country the 1st June has always been a widely celebrated day and I can't help but feel a little bit nostalgic about the times I was a child myself.
