Zucchini and Mozzarella Rolls



Zucchini and Mozzarella Rolls

Summer squash. This is basically the theme today, and when I say summer, I really mean summer. It is so damn hot right now, I can’t even describe the feeling. It is pure madness, but luckily, I’ve found refuge in a bar where they have the awesomest┬áice coffee in town and good quality music to go along. So I won’t be complaining any more!

Let’s talk a bit about the zucchini rolls. Use a peeler to slice the squash, it will make your life a lot easier. I didn’t have one at hand, so you can imagine the battle I had to endure. If you manage to slice them thin enough, and of course if you like the taste you can eat the zucchini raw. I prefer them cooked on a grill because I love the flavor the grill gives to food.

How to Add a Pinterest Button for Your Images



How to Add a Pinterest Button for Your Images

You might have seen this feature on my blog or on other blogs and might be wondering… why would people add another Pinterest button to a post if they already have a social sharing bar or buttons at the bottom or top of the post?

Let me share my view on this. Besides the fact that it looks cool and it makes your pages more dinamic, it also improves a lot the functionality. Think about it, you go to a blog and see a post with lots of images and maybe you only like two of them and want to pin only those two. You scroll all the way down or up to find the social sharing bar and when you finally find it and decide to click on the Pin button a window crowded with thumbnails appears and you’re just like “are you kidding me?”.

Spinach and Garlic Penne Pasta



Spinach and Garlic Penne Pasta

Spinach and garlic! If you would ask me I would say never cook spinach without garlic. It just doesn’t feel right. Am I the only one around that feels this way? Anyone?

They are a perfect match.

Apple Carrot and Peach Smoothie



Apple Carrot and Peach Smoothie

Let the health revolution continue! Well, that came out a bit too heroic, but in essence that is how I feel right now. So much in fact I’m even thinking of starting a new section on the blog, maybe called Healthy Monday? How does that sound?

But in the meantime… smoothies! Why smoothies? Because some time ago I heard a saying that got stuck in my mind. It went something like this: “eat your liquids and drink your solids”. ┬áI don’t quite understand the first part of this quote ( maybe someone can shed some light ), but with the second part I simply fell in love! Thus, smoothies.
