Honey and Garlic Glazed Salmon with Mushrooms

Honey and Garlic Glazed Salmon with Mushrooms

Freshness and sweetness in one dish! I like to eat fish at least one time during the week. Most of the time, salmon is my favorite choice for a simple reason: it has enough flavor by itself. You can cook a salmon fillet with a pinch of salt and pepper and it would taste good. Besides, it matches with a wide variety of veggies. This time I made a sweet glaze with honey and the spicy and strong flavor of...

Grandma’s Beef Stew with Potatoes and Carrots (Latin American style)

Grandma’s Beef Stew with Potatoes and Carrots (Latin American style)

I’m sure there are meals that make you remember a specific time of your life. Well, this beef stew tastes to me like all the weekends at my abuela’s (grandma’s). She used to serve this rich stew over a big bowl of fluffy white rice. It was definitely the best part of my weekend along with her quesillo. If you know me you probably know that I’m not a fan of white rice. For a Latin American girl, this is...

One sheet Spicy Pork chops with Oyster Sauce

One sheet Spicy Pork chops with Oyster Sauce

Isn’t just beautiful this pan full of goodies? Juicy pork chops in oyster sauce, surrounded by potatoes and sweet baby carrots. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. This dish is highly influenced by the Chinese restaurant close to my house. It is my version of take away food from the commodity of my oven. Another great advantage of this meal is that you will only use ONE sheet pan. Therefore cleaning after cooking will be a piece of...

Alfredo Chicken Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes

Alfredo Chicken Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes

  I had an entire week craving for some kind of creamy pasta. And since I know that Alfredo sauce is one of the easiest way to turn an ordinary pasta into a gourmet experience, I decided to cook something with it. You can make infinite combinations, as this Alfredo pasta with shrimps. The key ingredients for this creamy sauce is the cream (you can use heavy cream or a low fat cream), the butter and the Parmesan cheese. Beyond...

Easy Citrus Glazed Chicken Thighs

Easy Citrus Glazed Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are one of the tastiest parts of this protein. You can get a generous amount of meat covered in a crispy skin that works so well with any kind of glaze. This week I wanted something tasty but fresh —in Lisbon we are at 30ºC— and I had some frozen chicken thighs waiting for some inspiration. I decided that the best way to make a fresh meal with the chicken was with a citrus glaze. Orange, lime and...

20 minutes Spanish Chorizo and Beef Pasta

20 minutes Spanish Chorizo and Beef Pasta

This probably is the favorite recipe of Will (my Boyfriend in case you are new to the blog). Lucky for me it is so easy to do that I always save this recipe for those days that I’m not feeling like spending hours in the kitchen. It is easy as tasty and you will only take 20 minutes to do it – pretty amazing huh?. The key ingredient of this recipe is the always imponent Spanish chorizo. If you have...

Zucchini Beef Lasagna

Zucchini Beef Lasagna

Many of my Sundays with family were marked by a big pan of lasagna. In the recent years —when is not so easy to lose weight as when I had 15 years old—,  I’ve started a “Healthy path”.     Replacing ingredients that are high in calories is one of the favorite strategies to keep down the calories counts in a recipe. For this lasagna, instead of using pasta for the layers of the lasagna I will be using sliced...

Foolproof Mushroom Risotto

Foolproof Mushroom Risotto

I really enjoy earthy flavors that may seem so simple but turn out to be comforting to my palate. I learned to make this meal when I was new in the kitchen. So, as you might imagine, the first time I tried it was a complete mess.     I basically ended up with an unrecognizable soggy paste. So after reading thousands -I’m so dramatic sometimes- of mushroom risotto recipes on the internet, I came out with my own version...

What a better option for this purpose than doing this Salmon with kale and mushrooms that is super delicious and only 300 calories per portion. As you may know “Kale” is the trendy vegetable. The Kale is considered one of the “superfood” because of its high levels of vitamin K, A and C.   As a dressing i used a...

Prawns Devil (Madeira’s recipe)

    This is a recipe that I learned while I was living in Madeira – a small island that belongs to Portugal- and is basically prawns dipped in a spicy sauce that is absolutely delicious. Madeira is well known for their ways to prepare fish and seafood. They know how to maintain the integrity of the seafood flavor and create amazing dishes. If you ever have the opportunity of visit Madeira island you can’t miss Doca do Cavacas, a...
