Nothing easier than making a salad, right? Right, but as long as you have all the ingredients ready for the tossing. So why don't we cook some quinoa first and then some butternut squash? From there it's all about mixing all the ingredients together. So little fuss for so much delight!

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, results really started to show, so wish me luck!
