Taco Tuesday!

Happy August, you guys!!

It’s been a while since I was craving tacos, and yesterday, after a failed attempt on trying to build a meal plan for at least this week, I decided to make tacos today!! This recipe is very similar to a burrito one that I’ve been doing a lot lately over here (which I still need to post!), but I don’t know why I find taco shells really fun to eat, even if you make a big mess (which I do…ha!).

Sundays are for Homemade Pasta

IMG_7505

Now that I am fully equipped with a pasta machine (yes, Rafael gave it to me as a birthday present, I can totally see second intentions there…hahaha), my Sundays will be for homemade pasta! Yesterday, Rafael and I spent the afternoon making pasta from scratch for our late lunch, or would it be an early dinner?! (our typical Sunday around here). In the end it doesn’t matter, what matters is that we ate the most delicious pasta! Seriously, we wanted to eat it all at once, if it would’d been possible we had probably done it…hahaha

Stuffed Conchiglioni with Spinach and Feta

If there is one thing that I love in this world, is pasta! Any type, any kind…no prejudice here! I love cooking pasta at home, and for my luck, so does Rafael….we make an awesome pasta duo! hahahaha. I already told before that when I was a teenager I used to spend my Saturdays helping my beloved aunt to cook pasta. She would mix the ingredients in a bowl and I worked the dough, then she opened the dough using a pasta maker and cut it in the right size to make lasagna, cannelloni and rondelli, and after that I would cook the dough and sometimes help to make the dish. But with conchiglioni it was different, it’s not an easy type of pasta to make, so my cousin would buy it ready and you just needed to cook it and then stuff it. I usually did the stuffing part, with a delicious combination of three cheeses, that I never resisted to…so I would stuff a little and eat a little…hahhahahha

Let’s get on with this recipe!

Couscous Salad with Lamb Chops

IMG_1578

A few days ago, I posted on Instagram (follow me @brunaiglezias) our Sunday dinner. Rafael loves dishes with couscous, basically because he loves arabic food, on the other hand I am not quite used to it. So I began my search on the internet to find a meal that would please us both. I came across this recipe that had everything I liked, roasted vegetables, chickpeas and arugula…plus couscous! That  was a winner, I thought! But Rafa usually isn’t very fond os dishes without a protein, he always says that after eating only salad, 15 minutes later he is hungry again…hahaha

Leek Quiche

Yesterday I was looking for a light recipe to cook for dinner, I have this brazilian cook book, Dona Benta, and it has a lot of recipes. I came across the section of tartlets, pizzas and pies, and I finally decided to make a leek quiche. This recipe is very good, you can have it for dinner, brunch, lunch…just pick a meal!
