I hope you are all well. This week I have decided to share with you one of the recipes that I discovered while doing my 90 day SSS Plan (Shift, Shape and Sustain).
I am now on the 3rd month of the plan and it has really been a great journey! I have never eaten so much, cooked so often and enjoyed going to the gym :)
This is the recipe you tasted during our Christmas holidays, cooked with Emi’s help :)
It is a reduced carb recipe that you can have anytime, guilt free!
If you decide to have it after you’ve worked out, you can add in 50-75 gr of pasta :) yum.

To start the new year off, I thought I’d share a recipe that has become a staple here at home. It’s easy and is as good for a crowd as for a romantic dinner for two. I’ve made it with an assortment of seafood for special occasions (see note at the end) but mostly I make it with humble little cockles that I get fresh from our local market. Cockles are cheap, delicious and easy to deal with! You can use canned baby clams too but you’ll miss the wonderful sound this makes when you serve it up. I adore noisy food!
The recipe I based mine on is from my well-stained, well-loved copy of Jamie’s Italy by Jamie Oliver. Here goes. Continue reading

Hello dear readers,
We started this blog two and a half years ago as a way to share recipes with one another and to connect through food, even though we’re a family that’s scattered across the globe. It’s been such good fun and we just love hearing from readers who try out our recipes! There’s something special about feeding others and we’re honored that so many have chosen to share our food with their friends and families.
2015 was a year of evolution for all of us. Hanin blossomed as a mother, Beth embraced a whole food plant-based diet, Emily started taking her professional future into her own hands and Mom has put herself out there as a budding children’s author. We’ll be lucky if 2016 is as good to us as this past year has been. In any case we hope you’ll stick with us, we have some changes planned (shhhh it’s a surprise!) and lots more drool-worthy recipes coming your way.
We’d like to kick off the new year by taking a minute to look back at the most popular posts in 2015. Enjoy :)
Thanks for your readership and support, we wish all of you a very happy new year with lots of food, fun and family.
It is with great pleasure, and honor, that I close our Christmas Special Series!
As you have probably noticed, some great recipes were shared to satisfy your sweet tooth, each better than the other… Oh my! I am going to have to be careful during the holidays and not ruin all the efforts I have been making over the past few weeks! Haha.
The following recipe is a dessert I once had at my great Aunt’s house (Thank you Amto Sulafa!). I instantly fell in love with the idea, and let me tell you, this dessert will give you lots of energy to fight the winter cold ;)
It’s a great feeling having a few things tucked in the freezer all ready for the holidays. I just finished tearing bread crumbs from a big loaf of sour-dough bread. They’ll sit out on a cookie sheet till tomorrow to dry out then I’ll put them in a bag and into the freezer …. my turkey gravy is already in there, chillin’ until the big day.
Now for something sweet! It’s hard to resist the cherry/ almond flavour combination in this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens– super easy and delicious and you can freeze it for up to a month. I have to confess that I was feeling a little feisty today and made big changes to the original recipe. The result was more cakey and I’m proud to say, yummy. Here’s my version.
Good morning dear readers!
What do you have for Christmas breakfast? Over the past few years, after we excitedly go through our stockings filled by Santa- we gather for a hearty breakfast: scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, toast and cinnamon rolls. I love making these, a recipe I’ve adapted from “Cooking Light Five Star Recipes“- I recently made them for a brunch- they literally flew out of the baking pan so fast and onto my friends’ plates that I didn’t get a picture in the pan!
Bonus with this recipe is that your entire house smells divine :)
