Sweet & spicy Korean bbq Tacos with quick Pickled Slaw & Radish Salad

Almost every memory of childhood I have is based around the kitchen. Pressing tortillas, making folds with my fingertips in empanada dough, grinding chilies.  I love this recipe because although it pays homage to my roots it also plays with flavours from various cultures.


“Tortilla española”

I am very excited to share my recipe with you and, after a bit of thinking, I have decided to go for one of the biggest hits in Spanish cuisine: Spanish omelette. I love the idea of spreading its wonders around the globe and...what better way to do so than through this challenge! The recipe is in my blog, Tía Alia Recetas, but it is in Spanish though. Here is the direct link. It is a very old entry, so this will me my chance to update the pictures and everything else.

Vineyard Chicken

This has to be one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken, with fresh fruits and aromatics straight from the garden, plucked, cleaned and thrown into the pot!
It's harvest season here in the vineyards of Temecula, the fields look beautiful with rows of grapes hanging from the vines and rose blooms perched at the end of each row.


Chilli Garlic Pasta with Curried Bread Crumbs

Why? The recipe serves only (ONE) person - YOU! Life can be so demanding, but every now and then, stop and steal time out of the day/week, just for yourself. Ask everyone in your life (ever so nicely!) to leave you alone for an hour, or an afternoon or an evening.

Sonhos “Portuguese Pumpkin Fritters "

Hello everyone, I’ve been so excited about sharing this recipe with you. “Sonhos” means dreams in Portuguese and they are usually served during the festive season. Whatever time of the year it may be, it’s the first thing I’ll ask my mum to make, when visiting them in Portugal.
