The most joyful and blessed time of the year has arrived.
Hello Christmas! My favorite and special holiday that still play magic on me. . . May you never stop searching the skies on Christmas eve!
Food is a big part of the festivities, and why not deck the table with some relish hors d’oeuvres to wow everyone. Go beyond regular and add let your food presentation as well say it’s Christmas time.
At this time of the year, red and green are not just regular colors!
Guacamole tostitos scoops, are a beautiful and festive amuse bouche, to be on your christmas table. It’s always good to have an easy-to-pick-up food that requires no fork or spoon.
You will need:
- 20 tostitos scoops (tortilla chips)
- 1 big ripe avocado
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- lemon juice (as per your taste)
- diced capsicum for garnish
- sour cream optional
A very easy and last minute preparation, no efforts or time needed. All you have to do is to layer the ingredients in the tostitos scoops. Starting with the sour cream, (if you decided to put), then guacamole and finally garnish with the finely diced red capsicum. To make the guacamole, puree the avocado, roughly with a fork, (when it’s really ripe, you don’t need more than a fork to mash it) and mix it with garlic salt and lemon juice. Adjust the ingredients as per your taste, condiments are always subjective.
You will love these bites, and trust me they will disappear in seconds!
I wish you an extraordinary “reveillon” full of delicious food, warmth, blessings, lots of gifts, memories, laughter and love. Chocolate doesn’t come as a wish, i am sure it’s for granted 😉

Oh marmite et ponponER’S how i miss you ❤
I woke up this morning and the first thing on my mind was marmite et ponpon. Back form the summer vacation and before getting overwhelmed by a packed schedule, i wanted to start with by a big fat i love you and i miss you.
I spontaneously chose the last post from the queue (the long queue, the really long queue) to share it with you, without thinking and without planning … All i can say (emotionally driven) i really miss you and miss my space where i share with you what i like to do the most.
Happy to reconnect with you after this long time!
Vegan whole wheat fusilli pasta is my recipe to share with you today. Serving 4, you will need:
- one pack of whole wheat fusilli (cooked as per pack instructions, washed and drained)
- 500b tomato puree
- 1 big capsicum cut a la julienne
- 2 cups broccoli
- 1 1/2 cup fresh mushroom sliced
- 5-6 small zucchini cut a la julienne
- 2 big carrots shaved or thinly sliced
- 1 cup black olive, seedless
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper as per your taste
Bring olive oil to heat and sautee the broccoli, carrots and zucchini for 2 minutes then add capsicum (choose the color you want), mushroom and olive to sautee all for another 1-2 minutes.
Pour the puree of tomato and cook the mixture 1 minute after boiling. You don’t want the veggies to be 100% cooked. The little bit of crunchiness will create a beautiful contrast with the pasta. Add salt and pepper as per your taste!
Mix the sauce with the pasta and serve it hot or maybe at room temperature. Bon appetit!
