This is a very simple recipe, yet full of flavour and I belive it looks very elegant. In case you want to impress someone! I had it as a main course, but half the portion can be served as an appetizer or even as finger food if you make the rolls smaller.

Give it a try, and let me know how it works for you!

Regular Bun, Thin Bun or No Bun!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today I cooked this absolutely delicious steak burgers! When I cook burgers at home, I like to have them without the bun, with cheese on top and some avocado slices. My husband had it with a thin bun, but this part is completely up to you.

This time I used two kind of cheeses. I topped it with gorgonzola cheese and then layered a thin slice of mild cheddar to cover the gorgonzola, I really liked it! Don’t forget about the avocado. Mmm! Just delicious!

Stuffed Zucchini

I love this kind of zucchini, for some reason I find them milder in flavor that the darker green zucchini. This kind of zucchini is called “calabacita mayera” first I though that the had this name because they were related in some way to the mayan indians, in the US I have to go the mexican market to buy them. It turns out that they are called like that because they are mostly harvested in the month of may! Ha! So I had to laugh a little bit about my self because of my ignorance. You may laugh too…

They are very light, easy to prepare, delicious and filling.

I like them because I can prepare them ahead of time. I cook them fairly often and every time I cook them everybody enjoy them very much, hope you do to!

Last night I prepared this light dinner for my daughter who is going back to school, her spring break is over. It was lovely to have here at home with us. Now it is my son’s turn. It is so sad that their vacation is always in different weeks. But that’s the way it is and I am happy that I get the chance to spoil them for a little bit. Maybe this way all my attention is focused in one of them at a time!

This is such a light dinner, it is very easy to prepare. full of nice aromas, nutritious, low-fat, low-carb, gluten-free, paleo. Give it a try, I know you’ll love it!

I know the internet is full of spaghetti squash recipes. I recently discovered it and I found it amazing! You may have it if you are following a gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian or paleo diet,  or just for the fun of it! I rather eat a vegetable, which gives me fiber, energy carbs and vitamins, than just plain energy carbs from pasta. It is very easy to make and it comes out so delicious! It absorbs what ever condiment it may come to your mind.

Here is how I prepare it, scroll dow to find 2 ways to serve it, one with my Pesto Paste and another with ricotta and tomato sauce. Both of them delicious! Give it a try!

Scroll down and you’ll see a photo of my spaghetti squash al pesto and also a delicious sandwich that I made with fresh tomato and mozzarella. Mmm…

Soups are so convenient in cold days, I’m hoping for spring to come soon enough so I can start enjoying different kind of meals, more refreshing. But… meanwhile I am starting to say goodbye to soups, broths and everything in between. This soup is so light with a taste of dill which gives me a hint of freshness and spring! Very easy, just lots of chopping, but it goes fast. After the chopping everything goes very smooth and quickly. Enjoy!
