Why do they do it?

A Colombian mum’s view on separating families at the US border We’ve all seen the news about the US separating families at the Texas border. If you live in America you have probably been bombarded with information about immigrants from Latin American countries who enter the US with the intention to ask for asylum. But...

Courgette and Aubergine salad

This salad is just perfect for summer! I had something similar at an Italian restaurant once and the aubergine (Eggplant?) was soaked in olive oil, which spoiled the salad for me because it made it richer and heavier when it should have been fresh and crispy. The texture of aubergine when it's been soaked in... Continue Reading →

Super versatile, this rice can be eaten on its own or as a side dish to anything else. I reckon... Continue Reading →

Colombian carne desmechada (shredded beef)

There’s something about the entire BBQ experience that suggests good weather, good friends, good times ♫ ♫ But, unless you are willing to buy everything processed, BBQ’s can be faffy and time consuming. Well, fear not! I have the perfect alternative for you. Also a great choice if... Continue Reading →

Teriyaki salmon

  I really love informal meals that allow you to 'dig in' and share with your loved ones. I think they make the dining experience much more enjoyable and encourage you to relax and interact with each other. I also think sharing meals can be a valuable learning opportunity for children. Little ones get to... Continue Reading →

Family meal plan May 2018

And I agree, it can be a wonderful thing when trying to eat healthier and reduce food waste at home. It also speeds up your shopping trip, an absolute live saver when you... Continue Reading →

Papas chorreadas

  This is my own take on a Colombian classic. When I was at school we had the most amazing school dinners - I realise now we were incredibly lucky - and we used to fight over these. We would trade our pudding with someone younger or new to the school for their portion of... Continue Reading →
