Loren Sweets – a sweet corner in Ticinese

If you live in Milan you will notice how many new places open every month. I was living in Rome for the last four months and I have missed all the new places that opened here in Milan, which I must admit I now consider as my city. I am saying that because I have…

Summer colours – baked eggplants

Summer is here! I am so thrilled. Even if this would be the first year with no summer vacations it doesn’t matter so much as I am back in Milan, doing the job I have always wanted… I will have time to rest later. And in the end Milan is so full of nice places…

Beer Muffins GF

Starting something new can be so adventurous, challenging and interesting but so, so incredibly difficult. No time to eat, sleep enough or even go out with friends and colleagues. But when you grow up, and believe me you start growing up when you have to take your own decisions as I did while ago, having…

Greece in May – part I

It’s a gray morning in Milan, I have a free day and I am trying to find a ray of light but it seems impossible. I am still tanned from my recent Greek holiday for the Greek Easter. This time my destination was Kos Island, in the Dodecanese. It was my first time there as…

Felix – A tiny place in Navigli

It’s not a secret I am deeply in love with Milan and the Navigli area. It is like a micro cosmo where you can live your entire life without the need to go somewhere else in the city (ok for a short period perhaps, then you need to explore the city). Here you can find…

Noodles Milan – Fusion food

Yes, I must admit: I am a sushi lover. I don’t know why but in the last months I could eat sushi almost everyday. Perhaps this is due to the fact that if you live in Milan it is one of the easiest way to feel full with little money, the all you can eat…

Baked artichokes

Artichokes are so good and if you carefully consider them they seem a difficult food to handle. How shall I cut them? Clean them? So often we prefer frozen ones. They are good but fresh ones are the best veggies of this months. When living in Rome every Saturday I went to the market at…

My Avocado toast

We must admit that even food follows fashion. What is mean is that almost suddenly some dishes become so cool that everyone is eating them. It has been like this for some “super foods”: acai, goji berries, maca, quinoa and so on. Now it’s the time of avocado. We love it: from smoothies to nice…

Vegan moussaka – Greek

One thing I always repeat is that “Great changes are always preceded by chaos”. Well, this time it is quite different. I have decided to take my own decision without waiting for any change, I made my own change. I decided that life will bring the plans I am creating. Enough waisted time waiting and…

Raw avocado cake

Sometimes I have new obsessions. I had the cake design time, when I was baking from morning to evening, decorating, cutting fondant and so on. Then came the smoothie obsession (still ongoing I must admit). Then sandwich and quick and easy meals for office lunch. Now I have this new one, which is definitely the…

Gluten Free gnocchi

I am totally in love with gluten free pasta. I have not a a celiac disease but when I eat too much wheat products (especially pizza or pasta) I feel like I have eaten soooo much! I have noticed it a couple of years since now and in the beginning I thought it was because…

10′ Mackerel pasta

Ok I must admit I haven’t written any post this week because I was…souping! What’s this?! Ok ok you know, you suddenly see that spring is here, which means that summer is very close, and you need to detox. Why they say detox, in reality you need to lose weight or just to feel fit,…
