Zucchini Risotto

Alright, once again I have to apologize for not having posted anything for so long. At least this time I wasn’t being lazy – it’s just that my flatmate, whose amazing camera I… Continue reading

Tortas Fritas (Argentine & Vegan)

I went on a 10-day hike once in Patagonia, one of the most beautiful regions not only in Argentina but, in my opinion, in the world. Throughout the whole trip, we never met… Continue reading

Aubergine and Pine Nut Pasta

This is an extremely tasty pasta, which also happens to be quite nutritious. I came up with this pretty much by just picking random ingredients that I felt like eating and combining it… Continue reading

Risotto alle Mele

This is a very popular family recipe. My grandmother used to make this all the time and its success makes for great family stories told over summer lunches. My version of this recipe… Continue reading

Penne all’Arrabiata

Here’s what I ate more than anything else this past summer in Italy. Unless I was cooking at home, in which case I was most likely making some zucchini pasta, every time I… Continue reading

Pepper and Tomato Pasta

My mom had always told me that peppers and pasta don’t go well together, except for a few very specific mixes with blue cheese and cream. Since she was never wrong about anything… Continue reading

Blue Hokkaido Pumpkin Ravioli

There are some times when I just can’t believe that I actually let myself do something so ridiculous. I had three hours before work and for some reason I decided that I wanted… Continue reading

Wild Mushroom Pasta

I’ve been making a lot of stuff with mushrooms lately, but it’s only because I finally found a place to buy quality mushrooms for very decent prices and I might have gotten over… Continue reading

Sun-dried Tomato and Red Pepper Pesto

Okay so I really think this might be the best thing I’ve ever invented. Although obviously a quick google search proved to me (as usual) that I hadn’t really invented anything – plenty… Continue reading

Chili (American & Vegan)

Surprise! I’ve decided that, while Italian food is still the best (duh), there are some foods from around the world which are simply too great not to veganize. So once a month (on… Continue reading

Exotic Mushroom Risotto

If you like mushrooms, this is the recipe for you. And if you like risotto too, well, then I think this might just become your favorite food. I love risotto in general, but… Continue reading

Tofu and Olive Linguine

Ok so this one is quite interesting. I started off just making a puttanesca, but when I realized that I had no capers and that I had some leftover tofu I thought, whatever,… Continue reading

Croquettes with Mushroom Sauce

I’m not going to lie, I feel kind of like a fraud for posting this because it’s practically the same as a recipe I got from a cookbook my mom just gave me.… Continue reading

Tortiglioni al Ragú

Ragú is probably one of the most world-famous recipes for pasta, although you probably know it as Bolognese sauce. Although there are some technical differences between the two, they are minimal – and… Continue reading

Garlic Bread

First of all, sorry that once again I haven’t been posting very often. I have made myself a schedule though so from now on I’ll post at least one new recipe per week.… Continue reading

Spicy Mushroom and Sausage Pasta

I know, I know, I make way too much stuff with mushroom and sausages. But since it’s so easy, cheap, and tasty, after I made this for myself I thought I might as… Continue reading

Sweet Potato Risotto

Sweet potatoes don’t actually exist in Italy, so this isn’t really a traditional Italian recipe. However, I love sweet potatoes and at the end of the day it’s still a risotto made in… Continue reading

Spinach and Mushroom Pasta

This was a pasta I made on the first day I moved in, I didn’t have all that many ingredients as I had only just done a quick shopping and realized I’d bought… Continue reading

Pasta Alle Zucchine

Hey! I know it’s been a very long time since I last posted any new recipes but I was travelling all over the place during the summer and barely ever even had the… Continue reading

Mushroom and Sausage Pasta

Every time it’s either my birthday or one of my siblings’, my mom lets the person whose birthday it is decide what to have for lunch. For some reason, we always choose this… Continue reading

Conchiglie al Pesto ‘al Forno’

I was intending to make pesto lasagne this time, except unfortunately when I went out to buy lasagna sheets I couldn’t find any Italian ones. I went to the biggest supermarket and town,… Continue reading

Delicious Home Made Bread
