My mother in law loves a good steak and there are several local restaurants that we go to every time we visit her. The…

I had a hard time deciding what to name these bars. Oat bars? Granola bars? Hemp seed bars? Chia seed bars? Dried fruit bars? Seed bars? Energy Bars? Gluten free bars? Vegan Bars?

Blueberry Banana Tart

Blueberry Banana Tart

It’s funny how the same meaning can be said using different words. My friend Kita thinks it’s as easy as a cake. I know it’s as easy as a pie. Hubby says easy as abc. In Romanian we say easy as (saying) good afternoon. No matter how you say it, today I’ll say it’s as easy…

I’m not Irish but I like the green decorations spread throughout the stores and malls. I love the clover light my neighbors are having in front of the house. I wonder which one of them is Irish. My favorite color is green, so it’s no surprise I like St. Patrick. I’m not a big fan…

I wonder if I’m the only one that has “non artistic” days In the last week all the photos I took were rubbish (and I’m being kind to them). I’m far from being a great food photographer but there are days no matter how many pictures I take all of them land in the recycle…
