Tuesday yumminess!

Throughout Central America, we have been fed with tamales. At first, I was skeptical. I mean seriously, THIS. DOESN’T. LOOK. APPETIZING. But after my first ‘unwilled’ bite (M literally force fed me. Pfff, I was not impressed) in the Honduran forest (which I would have called a jungle but this is a different story), I…

60 days of exploring already?! I can hardly believe that I’m celebrating my second monthversary on the road but I apparently did it. I have survived mosquito bites allergies, hitchhiking, chicken buses, local food, heat waves and most important the unknown (a small step for the backpacking community but a giant one for me!). Time…

Since I unfortunately had to say bye to my beloved baleadas, I desperately needed to find another local dish that could help me go over my slight baleada addiction. While strolling on a street in the one of the most dangerous countries in the world (I’ll come back to this in my next post…), a…

Sitting happily in Copán, Honduras, where we have met fantastic people, I can finally post, as promised, a Tuesday yumminess from Central America. Tadaaaaaaa! This week, I’m taking you to… Guatemala!  While in Antigua, we got to try the (almost) Guatemalan national dish: a dish called pepián. This is a stew (or recados) that is…

2 days, 16 hours and 33 minutes left and I cannot believe that this is my last Tuesday yumminess in Switzerland in a long while. Ahhhhhhhhh time is flying! Sob, happy smile, sob, happy smile. Don’t mind my irrational behavior, this week has been emotional and it is getting worse!  While I’m sad and happy…

9 days, 17 hours and 24 minutes left until I am leaving on a jetplane (yeaaaaaaaah *Carltons move*) and I just discovered (ahhhhhhh! *screaming at the top of my lungs*) that my carefully picked and wonderful (sub)tenant would not be moving in. Arggggggh. Say whaaaaat? Breathe in, breathe out, repeat. First reaction? I’m f**ed! (Or…

What was I recently saying?! Oh yeah… let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… Well, I can definitely say that winter got my memo. Who would have thought that the Rain dance I learnt in Monument Valley would be so helpful?! I sightly modified it (obvisouly, rain and snow… same same BUT different),…

This week’s weather is definitely calling for a treat… Don’t get me wrong, I can handle rain (influence from my English friends?). I can handle snow (influence from my Swiss friends?) but sleet? Really Winter? It is not acceptable, nor enjoyable, nor needed. Get a grip Winter and do what you are best at: let…

Tuesday yumminess! 

I wish I could feel with you as I heard that back in Europe it is cold and rainy but I somehow fail to imagine what this could be like since over here (Down under) it is still over 30 degrees after dusk.   Please accept my sincere apologies and to make it up to…

Tuesday yumminess! 

Since Australia is about to happen (haaaaaaaaaa only 3 more sleeps!!), I have decided to dedicate my Tuesday yumminess to an Australian foodie: Irena Macri. I was lucky enough to come across Carol, an Australian blogger while looking for a dessert recipe.  Carol’s post features Irena’s chocolate soufflés and those soufflés are simply fabulicious. At first I was…
