The last few days deserve to be merged together, or rather day 16 has very little of recipe story to be told. After a week of visiting friends and sampling local delicacies so familiar to heart, I thought fingers will be itching to get back to cooking, but laziness has weird ways of creeping in [...]The post Days 16 and 17: juices, smoothies and quinoa appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
What do you eat after a week of not only indulging, but quite possibly overindulging in everything you like most? I have a line up of foods that quickly come to mind, but I?d love to hear where your preferences are. Between Days 14 and 15 a little break in Lithuania squeezed in, which was [...]The post Day 15: Salad time appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
Day 14 marks the end of week 2, reaching the middle of this very recipe loaded month. With day 1 it started with an example of what I wholeheartedly perceive as healthy eating and living and a personal challenge to keep up providing recipes and accompanying photos daily. A challenge, because as within each activity, [...]The post Day 14: Sweet end to week 2 appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
After weeks of pouring rain and morbid temperatures, the sun has finally crawled out here bringing warmth and summer feel. With temperatures rising high it only seemed appropriate to lock up the lap top for a few days, take a break to enjoy the sunshine. Now that I, myself, am starting to resemble a lobster, [...]The post Day 13: The fabulous frittata appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
I have a question for you, just how often do you cook more extensive meals during the week, if ever? I realize with busy lifestyles quick, simple and easy are usually the motto during the week, but just because it’s mid week, doesn’t mean you can’t sit down and enjoy a few courses with a [...]The post Day 12: midweek feast appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
The recipes today are for those particular times when you’re so lazy (or busy) to get cooking, not feeling in the mood for a take out, but still would like a quick and delicious meal. Starting with the breakfast, I try my best to always have granola made at hand, to through together for a [...]The post Day 11: Lazy meals appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
We’re in day 10 of examples of balanced and healthy eating and here I am posting a butter loaded pasta dish. There is cheese in there too. Not really healthy by any standards, but it’s ok. The whole idea of eating balanced meals is that just about anything enjoyed in moderation (note: I’m not recommending [...]The post Day 10: Oozing yolks appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
I consider Sunday to be the day of treats. It is after all the day for resting from the ending week and start preparing for the next, and I firmly believe indulging in delicious food does wonders for the mind. The treats I have in mind, however, don’t have to send sugar levels on roller [...]The post Day 9: Sunday treats appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
Days 7&8are merged together here and not because I forgot to post yesterday, but those bloody technical glitches have been testing my patience again…but technical repair is on the way. For a quick recap, day 7 was a dinner party, for which the preparation (because of all sorts of delays) was finished after employing all [...]The post Days 7 & 8 : sweet and sour appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
When you manage to ruin a simple procedure such as cooking mung beans, it?s fair to admit it?s not your day in the kitchen. Hence in a very French fashion (I?m very good in integrating with other cultures) today, I?m on strike! Fortunately I?ve baked plenty of almond muffins with strawberries and bananas yesterday, wonderful [...]The post Day 6: on strike appeared first on Gourmantine's Blog.
