Crispy and Light Potato-Spinach Tart

Scrumptiously healthy and light tart, filled with wholesome potatoes and fresh spinach 
over a crispy, buttery and cheesy crust.
A must try!

Maybe it's all the desserts I've been baking and the loads of chocolate I ate in the last few weeks to inspire this post. 
Or maybe, just maybe, it's my conscience whispering in my ear, and reminding me about my resolution to stay in shape and follow a healthy and balanced diet.
Either way, today I present you with this super light, vegetarian and deliciously healthy tart stuffed with tasty, oven-roasted potatoes, fresh saute' spinach and melted cheese.

When grilled cheese sandwich meets fresh strawberries
delicious things happen

Happy Monday! I know, I know ... nobody's favorite day of the week.

Something hearty and filling to start the day in the right direction. And something that is quick and easy, so that nobody will be running late out the door.
Here it is: a grilled cheese sandwich made with two thick slices of brioche bread, spread with Gold 'n Soft, filled with fresh strawberries, cream cheese, a touch of vanilla, a drizzle of honey, AND grilled to perfection. 
Sounds soooo good, right?! It sure is!

Easy to Make Seafood Paella

Flavorful and impressive saffron flavored rice mixed with your favorite, fresh seafood
I've posted this recipe before, a couple of years ago, and today I thought I should share it with you again. 
And I've got very good reasons for it!
Seafood paella screams of breezy summer nights and al fresco dining on a Spanish terrace overlooking the clear-blue sea. Spectacular sunsets and romantic guitar music in the background. A plate full of this scrumptious paella, next to a refreshing glass of sangria, of course! 
Is it just me, or I need some more vacation?!? For some quirky reason, amazing food makes me crave about exotic vacation destinations :)
Daydreaming apart, this seafood paella is a great one-dish, healthy dinner, perfect for a family meal or your next fancy party. To enjoy wherever you happen to be!

No-bake Fruit Cups with Mascarpone Cream

For all those times that is too hot to bake
 but you still want dessert!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  I can't believe it's September already and summer is almost over. It's certainly doesn't feel like fall, at least around here in Los Angeles.
Let's start this weekend with something mouthwatering and delicious. Something that's pretty and elegant and would for sure impress your guests. And something quick and super easy to make. Because who wants to be sweating in the kitchen for too long when it's this hot outside?! Oh, not I.
I rather be barefoot and sunkissed, relaxing by the pool. Ice-cold drink in hand and diving into one of these :)
