winter garden

Brilliant new collection from one of my favorite stores around, &OTHERSTORIES and WINTER GARDEN collection is out---



The last few years I've been living in the US, I have come upon lots of different recipes that are being called "Greek salad". Greek cuisine is becoming kind of a trend here lately and lots of restaurants include at least one greek inspired item in their menus. The truth is that it is a bit of annoying when you read that among the ingredients you will find in a greek salad is: lettuce. Greek salad never had lettuce in its form, I don't know how and why this has been reproduced but hey guys, this is the way most Greeks do greek salad:

Greek salad

2-3 fresh delicious tomatoes, cut in pieces
1/2 red onion, sliced
a bunch of kalamata olives
1/2 green pepper, sliced (optional)
1 tablespoon capers, or as much as you like
feta cheese or goat cheese (or any white kind of salty cheese will do, optional)
dried greek oregano
olive oil

Put the tomatoes in a salad bowl. Add the red onion slices, olives, pepper slices (if you're using), cheese and capers on top. Sprinkle with salt and then drizzle with olive oil. Put some dried oregano on top and that's it! (hint: you can also drizzle with some drops of red wine vinegar for a tangier taste)
Also, it's really up to you on what quantities of these ingredients you want to use, you can of course adjust it to your tastes, adding more or less of each ingredient.



Take me there

In awe with Hotel Viura and its whimsical architecture. I love how it's composed of different shapes of cubes and how it makes an architectural contrast with the rest of the scenery of Villabuena de Alaba. Perfect for you all wine lovers as you can explore the wine region of Rioja there plus you're really close to Bilbao and San Sebastian ;)

Well hello there!

I've been back and forth the last few days trying to adjust some things on the new template (! yes! Taste area has a new layout if you haven't noticed!) and I couldn't be happier with how it came out. Suzana from This Girl Design is amazing and made a brilliant job installing her blog design on my blogger template. Thanks again Suzana for fulfilling all my requests!
