Brunch at Leña

Although my baby girl’s not out yet, my maternity leave has already begun. If my little bean follows her due date, I should have about two weeks to unwind and prepare myself for her arrival, but then again, you never know with babies, they arrive when they feel like it! Basically, I’m just taking things one day at a time, doing as much as I can before she comes which I am absolutely so excited for.  Given that this weekend…

New year, fresh perspective

Happy new year everyone! I so hope you all had a wonderful holiday and a great start to the year!

This year, in particular, is already posing to be an extremely special year for me. Much…

Lounging in Mykonos

Much as I adore Santorini, there was something really vibrant about Mykonos that was unlike any other place I have been. If Santorini is famous for its Cycladic stone houses, Mykonos was striking for its stone pathways, pastel coloured doors, beaches and cultivated atmosphere. If you’re spending a few good days in Mykonos, I suggest rent a car or an ATV to get around. Much as its terrain is flatter than Santorini, there are still some places which are located uphill. Most…

Santorini

Santorini was a different story altogether. Having come from Athens, I was blown away by the spectacular scene of the landscape that dawned on me. It was breathtaking! Staying in Santorini for three full days, we felt it essential to thoroughly plan our itinerary. If you plan well, you’ll find that there are so many great things you can do in the island but of course, make sure to take the time to just lounge and rest. That is what…

Athens

I’m unpacking photos from Greece reminding myself of the breezy Aegean sea and the beautiful Cycladic white stone houses. I already miss it just by thinking about it! Considering the fact that I just started my second trimester when we went to Greece, it was a pretty tiring trip yet altogether really special and fun having been able to spend 11 days touring Athens, Santorini and Mykonos. Our first stop was Athens staying around the Plaka district which turned out…

Classic French Vinaigrette

I cannot begin to explain how wonderful French dressing is.  Out of all the salad dressings out there, I find this beauty to have the simplest ingredients yet arguably, the most delicious flavours combined. The sharp and strong dijon mustard pairs wonderful with the tart flavours of the vinegar and pickled shallots all wrapped nicely in a fresh coat of olive oil. It is absolutely delicious! I love this recipe of French vinaigrette by David Leibovitz and found it to be one…

Let me begin this apology by offering you some of this beautiful Pear Tarte Tatin.
