Happy birthday Mum – choco cake

For me Christmas is such a difficult time of the year…food..is EVERYWHERE. Not only do I eat on Christmas eve, on Christmas day, the second day of Christmas we eat the leftovers…on the 27th it’s my mum’s bday so…food again. And with food more presents of course. Every year I bake a special cake, different…

The beauty of Falls

I have always been a happy person. Then when you grow up you are “forced” to become more serious, more focused on studies and work. I have always been so competitive that losing was not an option for me, as I started playing tennis when I was only 8 years old this tendency to get…

Apricot cake for July

A new month starts today! I feel thrilled for all the great changes that I have been through the last months: moving to Rome, than decided to follow and realize my biggest dream, starting a new job, moving back in Milan, meeting new amazing people among them my employee and feeling part of a big…

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…

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…

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,…

Origano Rome – Feeling at home

The first week of 2016 I have spent almost twenty days living in a hotel. It was quite weird I have to admit. But in the end I was lucky enough to find a nice place, clean and in one of the best neighbourhoods in Rome: Campo de’ Fiori. While working hard all day long…
