Hello readers

Here we are, Friday, ready to celebrate the weekend and attend so many events. I am going to the Beach British Polo to watch the race and to take part of my friends Hag Do…they had to explain to me that is a combined Hen do and a Stag do, should be great fun!!!

And on Sunday I am going to Goodwood Festival of Speed, for someone who’s not that keen on cars should be good fun anyway…I actually look forward to that, Sunday should be the busiest day of the 4 days event, sold out for ages…bring it on then!! Me and my husband will be at the Michelin stand next to this gorgeous Audi R8 in chrome…if I forget my mirror I can put make up on just looking it at!

My Italian week is over and I feel it! Bergamo and Milano in my heart and soul, but now I can enjoy the British Summer down in Albion!

Milano duomo

Dear readers

I had such a lovely week back home to visit my family and friends that when on Friday I was about to leave I felt tears coming down, I have been living abroad for nearly five years and I have never struggled to leave so much like this time! Anyway, I am back home with my husband and my gorgeous dog, finally summer has arrived in the Kingdom so I am enjoying long sessions in the garden, walking around town and I have to start to kick my own ass at the gym if I want to see some good results…and to get rid of the hangover caused by the weekend!

I am so pleased with myself today, my freelance collaboration with Spanish Mag Flic Magazine is going well and what a coincidence, in this issue Anna in Her wonderland talks Milano… you can find the link here!

Back in business, into my kitchen! Surrounded by Hello Kitty Easter eggs and very soon from my family!

4 Apr

I finally started to feel better, my cold has finally abandoned me and my husband with his burnt arm and hand is getting better as well, shame now he has man flu…my fault apparently….MEEEEEEEEEN

By the way I am so glad that Kim is getting over this problem, and I am sure he is never going to use petrol again to lit the bonfire after this accident, his arm speaks for himself

I think we really need and holiday, an Italian one, I cannot wait to go back home on Friday, spend time with my family, go shopping in Milan, see my friends, and go back to eat normally (I finally lost that famous kg I was going on about, but just for the stress!) Now I’m back in the kitchen cooking away and being happy, do you want to see my latest creations?

Salmon fillet with crème fraiche, breadcrumbs and lime with green peas puree with crème fraiche and Thai green curry paste with chestnut mushrooms cooked in honey gorgonzola and brie cheese….what a wonderful dinner!

Yesterday morning I made Frangelico (Italian hazelnut liqueur) tiramisu to go for dinner to my mother in law…WOW it was good!

As you can see everyone know about my passion for Hello Kitty….only Hello Kitty Easter eggs for me so far, my friend Shonda will be happy as well!!! 🙂

And what about my latest discovery? While reading Grazia I came across an article about Pinterest…check me out if you wish!

Why am I getting fat? I’ll try to explain

11 Jan

When I’m in America for some strange reasons I always have every kind of cravings. From burgers to chocolate, from peanut butter to french fries…plus it doesn’t help the fact that our Australian friend Katrina always suggests us good place to go to eat.

My last discovery is shake shack in lenox avenue, just at the top of Lincoln road, it’s a fast food where the burgers taste like real beef, not like the crap they sell at McDonald’s…and the price is the same! Got a burger from there as late dinner when we came back from Barbados…and I have been dreaming of since!

Lunch for us there today…my husband tries to keep me healthy with nice homemade salads for lunch but there is nothing I can do, I could keep on eating all day! Trouble is…. My shorts are feeling too tight…let alone that I’m not even trying to put my jeans on! Diet from friday night on…well actually is not fair start a diet on a friday, the jet lag will kill me anyway…so my late new year’s resolution is…diet from monday!x

An ordinary Thursday evening at home…ended in tears!

9 Dec

Food, food, food. It’s all I can think about after 6pm.

Luckily I’m thin and I have a fast metabolism, because I eat so much I should be 20kilos more!

Inspired by the cold and windy weather across the country, I fancied something hot and healthy, that’s why my food processor sometimes is my best friend! A few courgettes, green peas and lots of basil, mix all up and cook it slowly for 30 minutes, here we are my hot soup has been made! (Surely it’s much better than crisps, olives and peanuts as a starter…I take care of my husband’s health!)

After that, inspired by the pub dinner of the night before, I fancied chorizo, and caramelized onions, and spaghetti of course! Just adding some tomatoes and red vinegar, the dinner was so good!

That’s why I rock in the kitchen…Nigella move over please!!!

Just kidding of course…I’m creative, I don’t follow recipes, I have to add my own touch everything I do, and I haven’t done wrong so far, plus it’s a satisfaction hear that having dinner with me is always an adventure!!

My evening ended in tears not because something went wrong, sorry to make people worrying just to read the title of my post, I wanted to watch my favourite childhood movie, Edward Scissorhands, and it made me cry so much! Sorry, I’m a foodie, a softy, and a big kid!!!!

Have a good Friday you all…not long till Christmas!

Too many things to say….

6 Nov

I haven’t written the blog since Thursday and I’m sorry about that.

I’m in paradise now so everything doesn’t really matter, we arrived to Miami Friday night and from that point on I felt happy again, I love being here!!

Yesterday it has been a long a nice day; I still haven’t got enough words to speak so I will do a photographic reportage 🙂

I’m in Miami by myself at the moment, the boys have just left to go to Key West so I’m happy and I will enjoy the time on my own as much as I can!!!

Have a good Sunday you all!
