Amazing halloumi toast

You guys, this was so good! Sourdough bread, olive oil and grated halloumi. Toast in the oven until the cheese is melted and golden. Make a salad with tomato, avocado, basil, onions, a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Top the toast with this.

Marshmallow pirate pops


So, Dante had a "Jake and the neverland pirates" theme for his birthday party. Knowing that marshmallow pops is a real people-pleaser (at least when the people are 4-6 year olds) I made some very simple marshmallow pirate pops, and I'm super proud that I managed to draw some Skully ones as well! The kids were very impressed!

All  you need are marshmallows, edible markers, and some sticks. It's truly a very simple task.

Avocado toast - the next level


Followers of my instagram account know that I frequently have avocado toast for lunch (and sometimes, for dinner too). I eventually grew a little sick of it so I need to kick things up a notch. They other day, I added some sliced baby tomatoes and basil - very good! It made a surprisingly big difference, actually! What's your favorite way to take avocado toast to the next level?

Welcome, summer!


We've had a beautiful long weekend, with plenty of sun. How about you?

We have had dinner outdoors every day, and even enjoyed a glass of rosé wine with some shrimp and crawfish canapés. I need more ideas for quick and fun snacks to enjoy before dinner - please share in the comments, if you have any suggestions!
