Buffet breakfast

Buffet breakfast

Although I’ve never been a fan of all-you-can-eat restaurants, I’ve always found a great comfort in buffet breakfast at hotels. I think it reminds me about my childhood when I used to travel to exotic countries with my parents.

They labeled…

Savoury Porridge with Marinated Chicken: Winter countdown

Here’s another comforting winter recipe. I’m starting to get familiar with savoury porridges, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ve always liked sweet porridge and being able to develop new textures while cooking is extremely amusing. Here you are: my first official savoury porridge recipe. You can choose your own toppings and marinade for the chicken, but these I’ve used worked great. Ingredients (makes 1 bowl): 1 pint of stock (I used leftover stock from another recipe) 100 ml milk…

Leftover Galician Stew Soup : Winter countdown

Winter is almost over, but although March has been colder than February in its first days, we can all smell Spring coming. For these last weeks of Winter, I’m going to make a soup countdown. I will be posting soup or any other warm comforting meal you can put in a bowl and eat with a spoon. This one is pretty easy. It is basically the same as Galician Stew, but it takes longer to cook,and you have to chop…
