WELCOME TO MY KITCHEN
Here is a space where I will share my experiences and adventures through the magic of food. Stay tuned for delicious recipes, demonstrations, food and restaurant reviews, and more!
I want to share with you a little of my story with tortilla de patatas. A love-hate relationship I think for most expats.
When one moves to Spain, it seems that almost every menu has tortilla de patatas in it. You find it everywhere, served as a pincho (a small snack, typically eaten in bars across Spain), as part of a sandwich, and also as a breakfast side. A tortilla overload!Read More›
The season started this week and what a great class I had. Great students, healthy cooking and yoga. An awesome class!!!
THE SUMMER JUST ENDED HERE IN MADRID so now is the time when we start trying to eat healthier meals.
Green juice is the new favorite!! We made two great recipes and then we followed with two low fat salads full of quinoa and grains. Fun, fun, fun. Loved it!!!Read More›
We love curry at home…! Here is a great, easy and healthy way to prepare curry mussels. I used red curry but your favorite curry paste work great. You also can add veggies to the sauce if you are going to make it into a pasta dish. Some of my favorites in this dish are roasted asparagus, Brussel sprouts, onions and zucchini. Enjoy!!Read More›
Roasted chicken!!! Every time I make roasted chicken at home we end up with some left overs. So it is always a challenge to figure out new ways to turn it into a whole new meal.
Following is a great idea for an appetizer, picnic or quick lunch on the go, that you can freeze and reheat as needed.
It is still vacation time here in Madrid, so my son and I have been looking for different recipes that he might like, but with a healthier twist.
Breakfast time during the school year is always in a hurry and many times the go-to menu is cereal, but he loves pancakes!! Together we have worked on a recipe that has a healthier twist and that he will love during those crazy mornings. I will make a few each time, freeze them and then just reheat them in the toaster when he wakes up.
This is one of my favorite meals from when I was growing up in Peru. Now living abroad, it is something I still love to eat and look for when I go to Peruvian restaurants for lunch. Tallarines Verdes, a creamy dish made with queso fresco, spinach and basil. Delicious!!!Read More›
