Summertime

I am waiting for it 8 months, every year. It is finally here and I know most people agree with me when I say that summer is our favorite season. Why do we love it to the bones? Literally ‘to the bones’, as sunlight exposure boosts the production of Vitamin D, which is essential to bones health.

Cat superpowers

There is nothing like cats and I cannot imagine life without them in it. They were a symbol of divinity in ancient Egypt and have been both worshiped and feared throughout the ages for being magical.

Morning Boosters

I believe that it is in our power to make our lives better, but we need to work for it and be persistent. One way to build a strong mindset is by asserting positive thoughts on a daily basis. To start with a good attitude every morning, I have added motivational notes on my calendar which remind me to think positive when I wake up. So when the alarm starts, I get a new inspirational message on my phone screen and it makes it difficult to snooze after seeing it.

Breakfast of Champions

If there is a taste I associate with my boyfriend, it would be a silky smooth and subtle smokey flavor. Blended with pouched eggs and Hollandaise sauce 🙂 Ok, I agree that it might sound weird, but I am actually talking about the taste of Eggs Benedict Royale, as this is his favorite breakfast food. And now mine also, since I became a pescetarian.

As ‘giving up’ hamburgers was a very difficult process, I’ve been trying to find a substitute for them, and Eggs Benedict Royale is the best alternative in my opinion. This is the reason why I made a true passion for this dish, so let’s see what makes it so special.  Continue reading

Brunch essentials

As you might know already, I am a food person and I find eating just one aliment at a meal boring. I like to have few different types of food on the table and I enjoy trying new combinations. This is one of the reasons I love brunches. They offer a wide variety of tasty foods, all in the same time. I like this feast so much that I think about my weekend brunches days in advance. I dream about, I visualize, plan and look forward to them.

There are a few essential ingredients that should be on our list when we are organizing a brunch. First one is creativity – prepping the food and arranging the table is half the fun of it.
