Salmon with olives, capers and cherry tomatoes

Difficulty 1/5

I love this recipe because the acidity from the white wine with the olives, capers and cherry tomatoes does wonders to a piece of perfectly pan-fried salmon. You can even use this with other fish you have at hand and it would still be great. On the side, I did some baked potatoes which are super easy and you can use with other dishes you like.

No-bake passion fruit cheesecake

Difficulty 2/5

This passion fruit cheesecake is my new obsession.¬†I had never done a no-bake cheesecake before and I’m not disappointed at all. It’s so smooth and rich it had me head over heels. I did it in a springform pan, which required me to freeze it and then unmould it, but I like it because you actually get to see the layers. If you don’t fancy the extra work, just like a pie mould with the crackers and butter all the way around the mould and then just put the filling inside and into the fridge. You won’t be able to un-mould it though :). Continue reading No-bake passion fruit cheesecake

The perfect hot chocolate

Difficulty 1/5

This hot chocolate is too yummy. It’s not just dissolved cocoa but actual melted dark chocolate with milk. It’s the kind that you find in European Christmas markets and I LOVE IT. You’ll specially like it if you’re into chocolate. I like it with whipped cream (if I’m cheating my diet I do it all the way!) and marshmallows. I also tried it with also marshmallows and it works amazing as well. Continue reading The perfect hot chocolate

Spinach, avocado, crunchy prosciutto, pomegranate and pistachio salad

Difficulty 1/5

–¬†So you want salad?
–¬†Of course! It looks amazing
Salad should not only be on your Christmas table to reduce the guilt factor, we have to enjoy it as well! Make it yummy, full of flavour, with sweet, crunchy and colourful components. What I like the most in this salad are the crunchy prosciutto pieces. It goes really crunchy, like bacon would (although I don’t fancy bacon that much :O) but thinner and more delicate. I also mix 2 dressings: one made of lime, a bit of mustard and olive oil and another one which is balsamic glaze or reduced balsamic vinegar which has a nice sweetness to it. Continue reading Spinach, avocado, crunchy prosciutto, pomegranate and pistachio salad
