MANGO LASSI

 

marrojo19-mango-lassiHow could I not like mangos at all in the past, and now they are one of my favorite fruits? Do these things also happen to you?

These ones were especially good. They are from a friend’s orchard, and he explained to me that the amazing flavor they had, was not so much related to the fact that they are organic, but to the way he picks them up, little by little, when they are truly ripe and at their best.
On the other hand, those rocks that we buy at the supermarkets, are collected all at once, and then they are let to ripen in the fridges.

That, not only makes a BIG difference in taste, but also in the vitamins and nutrients.

CARROT CAKE

marrojo10-carrot-cake-engI am the worst baker in the world. Seriously. After a good collection of brick-cakes ​​I have had to assume reality, there is only one cake that I know ho to prepare, and it is this one.
And it’s not too bad, because it is really delicious, of course it’s easy, and I also think it looks really pretty!
When people see it and try it, the tend to see me like the typical person who bakes delicious cupcakes and muffins, but this could’n be further from reality. I promise.

FISH BROTH

marrojo19_fishbrothI don’t know if you feel the same as I did, quite scared by the word stock or broth. To me, it sounded like high cuisine, until I discovered that it was something really simple to make. Once you make one, you realize that there is no complications, and that it’s much more handy to have your homemade broth in the freezer.

Moreover, to make it, you can use leftovers that otherwise would have ended in the waste, and I love it whenever I can reuse and recycle and save a little bit!

marrojo19_bestgazpacho

I can’t remember who told me the story of some friends who had gone backpacking in Brazil, and to lengthen the trip, decided to sell chilled gazpacho on the beach. It seemed the perfect idea to them, and also to me! Who wouldn’t love a good chilled gazpacho at the beach? Well, it was a total failure, and I can’t understand why. This is why I’ll never become a successful business woman, I have the worst business vision.

DSC_0092This recipe is from my friend Natalia. Mine is never as delicious as hers, but still, Continue reading
