You know I'm crazy about meat, and a properly cooked steak always puts me in a good mood. Especially, when it's paired with elegant, full-bodied red wine. Delicious steak (medium-rare of course), roasted potato, and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon or Malbec, that's how my perfect dinner would look like. Over my blogging career, I've cooked lots of steaks, and always tried to be adventurous with the rubs and marinades. I never wanted to buy rubs from a store. Instead, I dreamed of ...

You know I eat anything: meat, gluten, dairy, nuts, you name it. I'm pretty lucky not to have any allergies. However, today I tried to cook gluten-free pasta just out of curiosity.

Something about Healthy Eating + Sabich recipe

Hi, everyone! I am finally back to blogging after a long silence. I'm not only back with a new recipe but also with a new fun experiment. The thing is that I've decided to try 21-day detox program that I've found on the internet. As a part of this cleansing diet I even turned into a vegan for a week, furthermore I survived it=). Maybe, for some of you this is not a big deal, but for such devoted meat lover as I am, not to eat any animal protein is a very serious decision. You would probably ... Continue Reading
