Dabbling in cauliflower magic with this healthy Chicken BBQ Pizza

There’s this whole cauliflower craze that entered my radar last year thanks to the sheer genius of it. Who would’ve thought you could turn cauliflower into some sort of super ingredient to make a gazillion things?! The recipes I’ve bookmarked so far are all adaptations of calorie-heavy dishes (eg. white-sauce alfredo pasta, rice dishes, and pizza) because I’m curious to see how …

Hey guys! I realise I’m cutting it waaaay too close this year, but I am overflowing with excitement to share with you today this Strawberry Cheesecake Tarts recipe.

Baking Recipes, Pies & Tarts, Timeless Treats

Since it’s a special recipe kind of season, I made my first baklava

I feel like the closer we get to Christmas, the more people are prone to becoming a bit frazzled by the holiday grind. We all have to keep track of the parties, and whether or not we’ve already bought gifts for everyone on our list. Add to that there is some form of anxiety for …

Of 10 hour road trips and empanada hangovers

During the 5-day Easter holiday weekend, the family decided to pack some bags and board the bus all the way to the Northern part of the archipelago. It was, to say the least, a road-trip filled with stiff legs and even stiffer necks, but going with a group of family friends seemed to have made …

{Dearly Dreaming Dorie} Flakiness is occasionally a good thing

And by that, I most definitely am not referring to people. Flaky people are one of the worst, and I don’t even want to go into detail because that would have to be a whole blog post on its own (I’ve got a lot of experience from my university days, believe me). But flaky pastries? …
