Lemon and Courgette Drizzle Cake (no butter)

Lemon and Courgette Drizzle Cake (0594)So let me set one thing straight: I’m definitely not on some kind of health kick, as in eating clean and all that hoo-ha. However lately I’m on this…how shall I put it?…try-many-new-things…thingamabob. I’m sorry, but my vocab skills are out the door today. Please bear with me just a tad longer. This little gem of a recipe is worth the wait.

Quick Chocolate Bundt Cake

Chocolate Bundt Cake (0412)Before I move on to another recipe, I would like to thank everyone who sent me messages after the post about Androuet and their beautiful book. I couldn’t have written that without the never-ending support of my lovely readers and friends so I want you to know how much I appreciate that. Thank you!

And now let’s move on to some food – it’s a cake, and it’s chocolate. I have noticed that for the past couple of years I consistently post a chocolate recipe. Not only am I constantly searching for that perfect chocolate cake, but also I know that the simpler and quicker that recipe is, the more inclined I am to making it. Plus at this time of year there’s enough running around and trying to catch up with preparations for Christmas lunch and/or dinner, which ever one is traditional for you.

Carrot and Pineapple Cake

Carrot Cake (0429)Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday. It’s all about family and friends, and everything that should be celebrated about life. My year has been full; to be honest I really don’t know how quickly it passed by. Someone once told me that the older we get, the more we feel that. I think it’s true. For me it’s so important to stop once in a while and appreciate all the good things that come my way. My year has been like a yo-yo, like everyone else’s I guess, but still I feel thankful for the dearest people in my life. Especially those friends with whom I reconnected. You know who you are. Also a special shout-out to Sadie from Sadie’s Nest, Julie from Hostess at Heart, Anna from Life Bellissima and Sarah from Sarah’s Attic of Treasures. Four lovely ladies right there!

Two Simple Recipes: Vegetable Soup and Garlic and Chilli Kale

Garlic and Chilli Kale with Chunky Vegetable Soup (8631)

It’s still reasonably cold in the Med and I’m still nursing a very bad cold. My neighbour’s kid is having a ball running amuck right above my head, most probably sitting on a desk chair and sprinting across the corridor. Either that or playing boċċi. Who knows? Can’t imagine the grief he’s giving his mum, but I can definitely picture the grief he’s giving me!

So just when my head starts to ache I decide to post two recipes on C&T. Simple stuff but they are just the things I want to eat when I’m inside with quite some time to spend in the kitchen. There will be plenty of chances in the future for chips. That’s exactly what’s keeping me going! *Checking my forehead for fever*
