Go green attempt


Today was my first attempt of doing a green avocado salad with chia seeds , and it turned out to be a huge success , as told by my family members, the dressing recipe was made up by me,since I always enjoy the sour taste twist dressing , I assumed such ingredients :
1tsp lemon juice
2tsp extra Virgin olive oil
1tsp balsamic vinegar
1tsp flaxseed oil
1tsp ground pepper

Both the whole salad and dressing came out to be really delicious !!
Bon appetit and enjoy your Friday

Yesterday I decided to cook my own salad , my latest obsession is on the Quinoa Salad either its with vegetables , roasted peppers , avocado and the list goes on …
But my favourite dish is the one with avocado yes !am a big fan of avocados and can’t seem to have enough.So decided to do my own avocado quinoa salad ie ;rich in all nutrients and helps me keep balanced with all the fibre and protein that the body needs. I bought my quinoa pack from Waitrose food shops.At the back of the quinoa item is a full detailed preparation,cooking,and storage manual.My avocado-Qinoua recipe was bought online from bbcfood.com , and it turned out really yummy ,I was very impressed with the dish since it was my first attempt , btw if you have any delish recipe please do share ๐Ÿ™‚

La duree je t’aime


MISSING Laduree so much .. and especially its “Ramadan” now so I crave a lot of desserts during this time of year . I never ate better than Laduree ‘s macaroons ( caramel , Vanilla , rose) and tart cakes .. Those were my picks of my last visit in la duree @Paris . Soory didn’t get a chance to have a shot of the macaroons due to strong appetite wasn’t able to wait for a picture to be taken , so I chose to start munching those scrumptious macaroons ๐Ÿ™‚
Our order was as follows :
Macaroons (vanilla , Rose , Caramel)
Bread & butter
Skimmed Cafe latte
Cappuccino
Strawberry Tart

COOKIES . FIRST BAKING Attempt



Once upon a time , cookies were only a kid -friendly party favorite . No longer !

Cookies are now the treat of the times , at once simple and chic . Here was my first trial of “baking chocolate chip cookies”.

Here was the result of the attempt . I rate it 7/10 ,was a bit bitter :S

Does anyone have a better recipe , written in clear language and illustrated with full color photographs since I like to see pictures ๐Ÿ˜€

regards ,
