Figs, glorious Figs, time to preserve.

Figs, glorious Figs, time to preserve.

Figs, glorious Figs! One of my favourite fruits, and If we're lucky we get two crops a year.  We wait patiently for our late Summer, early Autumn figs to ripen and pray they will before they drop from the trees. Eaten freshly picked from the tree is a treat for the...

Gazpacho time.

Gazpacho time.

Summertime means Gazpacho time! Like many Spanish dishes and recipes, every cook has their own take on it, Gazpacho is no exception,.  Do they peel, chop first, do they add fruit, and which garnish? One thing though is for certain, use the freshest, seasonal...

Thinking back.

Thinking back.

Each end of May I think back to the day we left the U.K, with hopes and dreams of a new life in Spain. That became reality, we're still here, living large, embracing all eventualities and challenges that we come across.  Not always plain sailing, whose...

Pre-drinks !

Pre-drinks !

No, I'm not suggesting pre-loading, pre-drinks fashionable of late with the uni fraternities 😉 Just a Cava or two in the sunshine with friends before Sunday lunch. Obviously, it's good to add a nibble or two, something savoury and salty gets the taste buds going. As...

March Madness.

March Madness.

March Madness. The cold weather continued and finally, the promised rain that we'd all been longing for, for months arrived, arrived and didn't stop! The land, reservoirs and, rivers were dry, our water supplies were threatened to be non-existant for the future.  This...

Baby it’s cold outside!

Baby it’s cold outside!

This week the snow is BACK !! Last week we were basking in temperatures in the warm 20’s and now the thermometer isn’t getting above 8c in the day and freezing at night.  It adds to the January reality that it’s not always sunshine and siestas and that we’re going...

Liquid Gold, Olive Oil.

Liquid Gold, Olive Oil.

14 years ago when we moved to La Rosilla, we were definitely wet behind the ears, and certainly wearing, rose-coloured specs 😉 buying a small ‘Finca’ on the side of a mountain, with 600 sq metres of Olive trees planted or should I say clinging to the slopes, trees...

Time to chill !

Time to chill !

One way to cool down, in the high summer temperatures is to enjoy a glass or bowl full of chilled Gazpacho.  I keep a glass jug in the fridge to let flavours develop, and enjoy as and when.  Healthy, revitalising and rehydrating, perfect for an alfresco lunch. There are many varieties and personal touches and changes people […]

How the years have flown.

How the years have flown.

It’s our ” Living the dream‘ anniversary, or that’s what we thought and called it when we left England many moons ago, lock, stock & barrel.  Yes, it’s our anniversary of  ‘ The good life‘ on the mountain. Evolution, of our family growing up and changing throughout the years and embarking on their own futures and […]

Spring has sprung !

Spring has sprung !

My goodness it was a long time coming, after what has seemed an age of rain, wind and storms and cooler than average temperatures, we woke up at the weekend to blue skies and sunshine. We enjoyed breakfast alfresco, and drinks and canapés with friends before a long leisurely sunday lunch. We even got up […]

Poco hecho, for me !

Poco hecho, for me !

How do you like your steak cooked? I won’t judge, well maybe only a little 😉 Are you from the cremated side or just off mooing? For me, it’s rare or poco hecho as they call it here in Spain, plump, rested and juicy. It took me years to master the perfect steak, always looked and seemed […]

Tapear.

Tapear.

Never will I tire of ‘Tapeando’ with friends and family, this is the art and I like to call it that, of enjoying Tapas from one place to the next. A small bite and a copa de vino or Jerez, standing at a bustling bar, or in the market. Maybe indulging in a little lengthier time and […]

Desayunar

Desayunar

I love the way the Spanish have a verb ‘To breakfast’ Desayaunar it’s what you do, together with friends or on your own to ‘take 5’, mid-morning when you hit that slump and coffee is needed, and you just need that something to get you through to late lunch. Over the years of me living […]
