Olá! Jonathan and I visited Porto, Portugal last weekend and had a wonderful four days exploring this welcoming European city. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and rests along the Douro River, at the entrance to the Atlantic Ocean.
We eat a lot of eggs in this household, and it’s one of those things Jonathan and I take the exact same way, every time. For a quick breakfast, we’ll plop six eggs into a saucepan and eat them hard-boiled. I get 2, Jonathan eats 4, and we rarely ever eat the egg yolks.
It's so tart! I couldn’t keep my eyes from squinting from the sourness of it. The crisp bite and the wateriness of it gave it a wonderful texture, but it was a rude awakening on my unsuspecting taste buds.
It seems like everyone has their “I almost burned down the kitchen” story. I finally have mine. I set a croissant on fire in my oven. Within seconds, it went from being a lovely toasty croissant into a blazing fireball.
Mini Pie Bites are fun and versatile to make! Simply roll out a pie crust, cut with a cookie cutter, bake and top with pastry cream and fruit. These are topped with strawberries and bananas, but you can get creative!
Lately, I can’t walk past my windowsill without stopping to inspect and adore my new indoor garden. It’s still a bit young, but it’s commanding a lot of my attention, and every morning, I stumble straight to my little windowsill garden.
