Music of the day

This time it's Childish Gambino, a favorite around here, with his Terrified track from his latest album which I l-o-v-e. What I loved even more though was his breathtaking performance at the Grammys which I think it was the best performance of the show..got me chills

Objects of desire

This time it's all about chairs and spring designs..

Got the last CB2 (huge fan) catalogue on my hands and I couldn't but share with you my three toping the list. These are too nicely designed not to do that and while browsing the catalogue were the ones that stood out instantly so I couldn't keep it to myself - their details are phenomenal and they WILL become an addiction.

Take me there

One of my great loves, greek food, and greek cuisine's deliciously uncomplicated and simple, yet tastiest flavors, are hard to find outside the country's own borders. This place has been created by a Greek/Turkish couple and their love for what all the Aegean "Tavernas" and all the gatherings with great company alongside glorious food is all about.

Couldn't go last time I was in Miami but I am not missing this spot when I'm back in town..

Lately it's all about these beautiful bright red tones, and the combo of a total red look with the right pairings is a top style for me. Here are some of my favorite pieces currently:

Cod & corn chowder

Now that the weather gets colder (at least here), we are all up for consuming all kinds of soups;)
Lately, I found this recipe and thought I'd give it a try..and it did not disappoint at all. When you've run out of ideas of what you could possibly do with some left over cod pieces lying around in your freezer, this is the one to try: Cod & corn chowder. 

Kids love chowder when we get to order it while eating out and the addition of the oyster crackers completes the bill (look: fun part). Restaurants usually make it with clams and/or other types of sea "species" but using cod just make it an easy and fulfilling alternative. And that makes life better, right?

Cod & corn chowder


3 slices center-cut bacon

8 scallions/green onions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 medium Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/2-inch dice
2 cups 2 percent milk
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 pound cod, skin removed, chopped
2 1/2 cups cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup fat-free half-and-half (I used cream)


In a large saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; crumble. In same pan, sauté half of the scallions for 2 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add flour; cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes. Stir in potatoes, milk, broth, thyme, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10 minutes. Stir in fish, corn and 2/3 bacon; simmer 5 minutes. Stir in half-and-half and 3/4 scallion greens; simmer 2 minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with remaining scallion greens and bacon. Add oyster crackers on top!

Bon Apetit!
