Degustabox November 2016 Review

Happy to present you Degustabox November 2016 Review. It has so many cool products that I cant wait to share them with you! Feel free to ask me any questions about the box, I'd be happy to answer them. Let's get started! This month we have: Beanitos. These chips are made from beans, and I think this is very cool because I'm not a fan of traditional tortilla chips. Every package of Beanitos is loaded with protein and fiber. They are gluten free, non-GMO, and taste very good. Pair this ... Continue Reading

Perfectly Juicy Thanksgiving Roast Turkey

We need to admit, that Thanksgiving is all about the turkey. We can have a dozen of amazing dishes on the table, but they will be just a background for this masterpiece. I think that's fine, as long as you can cook you turkey to perfection. That means golden and crispy skin, and tender, juicy meat. And that's where the most problems start. Somehow the process of cooking turkey can scare the bejesus out of people. Well, I kinda get it because you have only one turkey on the table (most of the ... Continue Reading

Amazing Coffee Rubbed Flank Steak

You know I'm crazy about meat, and a properly cooked steak always puts me in a good mood. Especially, when it's paired with elegant, full-bodied red wine.

Over my blogging career, I've cooked lots of steaks, and always tried to be adventurous with the rubs and marinades. I never wanted to buy rubs from a store. Instead, I dreamed of ...

Blood orange Jam and Grapefruit Goat Cheese Crostini

Every time I want to throw a party, I'm struggling with finding the right appetizer to serve. Seriously, it's a very important decision to make. Because appetizer is the first thing that your guest will taste (if not to count wine), and you need a proper starter to set the tone of your party and to put the guests in the right mood. On my parties, I prefer to serve simple yet elegant food, which goes well with the wine I picked. Yeah, in our house there are mostly wine parties. You know my ... Continue Reading

You know I eat anything: meat, gluten, dairy, nuts, you name it. I'm pretty lucky not to have any allergies. However, today I tried to cook gluten-free pasta just out of curiosity.

Honestly, I'm even surprised gluten-free pasta tastes so good! Especially, when you toss it with homegrown tomatoes, green peas, and aromatic ... Continue Reading
