Hi! I’m Ramona and I am truly happy you stopped by! Welcome to my cooking little world! This is my space where I can share my recipes, my ideas, dishes that my family and friends have and still are enjoying. Some recipes are some of those childhood ones which I still enjoy greatly but I have to say I do enjoy greatly trying new things, new combinations every day and as I always say, no dish would ever be the same like the one cooked before because I always find myself doing changes even to the most traditional dish that I have eaten since I was a kid.
Cooking is my hobby, I find it fun, it’s my time to mentally relax and most importantly, it is my time to switch off from all the daily pressures.
I do not have any culinary training, oops what am I am omitting here – I have done a 2 hours sushi course a few years back 😉 but that is all, I promise.
I always did enjoy my mum’s and grandmother’s cooking although I did not spent much time in the kitchen next to them trying to learn bits as an adolescent, I did love taking up cooking challenges, try and create my own recipes and cook for my parents and twin bro from quite young (can’t tell you the age 😉 ha, ha )
I thought of gathering here all my favourite recipes, some simpler than others. Although I absolutely love cooking, I am a strong believer in simplistic and not so sophisticated cooking, to create a sense of freestyle cooking giving anyone that wishes and dares to cook the idea of various mixes, the liberty and total freedom to bravely get in the kitchen, put the apron on and get on with creating a dish that family and/or friends to enjoy.
Are you a busy mum too? This is the best place for getting ideas for quick’n healthy family meals! I am sure you do feel like me after a full day at work or running around, just to cook something nutritious and super easy but at the same time pretty quick to prepare too! Important, right?
As a mother myself I know that all supermums want to give their children the best on their plate and there is nothing to replace that with that home made cooked from scratch meal.
As a friend of many people, who loves entertaining and feeding people, I know that I want to give my family and friends what’s best on the dinner/party table and that is never because I want to impress but only because I really care and take good pride of what goes on the table. It has to be nice, healthy and as much as possible homemade.
As a food lover and enthusiast of good ’n’ healthy food, I’m never afraid of just trying anything new. I greatly enjoy being adventurous and combining ingredients. The outcome? … yes, you have guessed it …. it’s for all tastes indeed! Including the kiddos! Well, at least the recipes that are up here on my blog are these best outcomes. 😉 My kids are the best judges for everything I cook and they are always giving me the best feedback, thumbs up or down.
Cooking is real fun, oh, yes it’s fun, I mean it, come on, it has to be made easy, interesting, exciting, because ingredient combinations can get endless which is why I am not a fun of really sophisticated recipes with suprer looooooonnnng ingredients list and loooooong hours cooking. That for me is really off putting. Ok, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE traditional dishes, they’re great, but hey, we live in the 21st Century!!! Who on earth would like to spend that many hours cooking? Weekends?? … yes, different story but I have to say that lately I rarely have the time to do long cooking even at the weekends with so many activities, clubs and fun so cooking has to be pretty quick.
Come on, get busy around the kitchen and make it fun. Have a sip of wine a little dance around and let the chef within show up in your kitchen. Be courageous and spontaneous!!
So, let’s open the fridge, see what’s in there, get creative, get adventurous, come up with a dish in minutes that your family will be very proud of and really enjoy. Ditch takeaways now!
Come on folks let’s give it a go!!! It’s time to distress!
Quick’n yummy from a busy mummy!”
Come and visit again soon.
Have a nice day and see you again soon!
