Lemongrass beef skewers Vietnamese sandwich

The book I have been reading for the past couple of weeks is all about Vietnamese Street Food. What I love about the book is the fact that it has all those wonderful stories of streetvendors who build a name for themselves in this rather competitive ‘street food’ business.

Cucumber salad and a healthy update!

You must have all thought I completely forgot about it. Forgot about the 12 weeks program and forgot about trying to lose weight and forgot to keep you in the loop on the whole thing. Well….

Gazpacho

It’s not exactly gazpacho weather at the moment but well we can always dream now can’t we? I love a good gazpacho but had actually never made one myself.

Indian cucumber soup

Let me just start by saying that this is maybe not the most logical dish while in winter. 🙂 It’s lovely and refreshing, but also… it is supposed to be eaten cold, so if you’re in a summery country right now, this might just be the soup for you. Or if you’re like me – trying to loose weight –…
