A moving story (more precisely, a story of us moving)

A moving story (more precisely, a story of us moving)

And here we are, celebrating the end of our first year in Cincinnati (in fact that was two months ago, but close enough), and it’s more than time we post a lil update in here! Since we came back from our vacation in Belgium this July, we’ve been enjoying the extended summer that the midwest has to offer, before the ice age takes over the city for the next 4 months. We spent the beginning of September moving into our new apartment -the 4th in a little over a year, or 5th if we include the one we left in…

Easy oven baked fish fillet in pesto crust

Easy oven baked fish fillet in pesto crust

Here’s one of my go-to recipes for when we don’t have much time to cook dinner. 10 little minutes of preparation time, and in the oven it goes for 20′ ! The fish is really moist thanks to the high water content of the zucchinis, and it is perfectly seasoned by the pesto. I often serve it with couscous or rice, and sometimes some salad. Feel free to try out this recipe with different types of fish (cod, salmon, sole,…) and pesto (spinach, rucola, sun-dried tomatoes,…). Makes about 4 servings: +/- 1lb (450-500gr) fish fillet of your choice -I often…

Indian-style burger with red bell pepper mango chutney

Indian-style burger with red bell pepper mango chutney

Last week, some of our neighbours were moving and had to get rid of a few stuff, among which dozens of cookbooks. They told me I could grab what I wanted, so I left with 8 great recipe books. I was so excited to go through all of them! One of my favorite is about Indian cooking (Madhur Jaffrey’s Quick and Easy Indian Cooking, a really great book but since it’s from 1996 I am not sur whether you could still buy it or not). I just love Indian food but, as a friend told me, it’s not the easiest to…

Chocolate hazelnut granola

Chocolate hazelnut granola

You might have noticed it, I love to switch things up when it comes to breakfast. Pancakes, oatmeal, cereals, or even cake (oopsie)… It just puts me in a good mood and gives me a boost of motivation in the morning! This granola recipe filled with roasted hazelnuts and tons of seeds is a new variation to add to my list. We don’t always have time to make a pile of fresh pancakes in the morning, so it’s nice to have a batch of homemade, nourishing, and yummy granola ready for one of those early and busy morning calls -or the…
