Tinto for the heat

One of the easiest drinks to prepare, for a heat wave like this. There are many versions of this one in particular and most of them takes less than  5 minutes to make. This is a way to do mine. Again, this is NOT a claim of a 100% traditional tinto de verano. Quite instantly…

Spanish hiatus

Hey guys! Currently I am in Madrid  (passing through Zurich first) visiting some relatives. So until the 5th of august, I’m afraid I won’t be able to post as much. However, the blog format might change on weekly basis,  just for better time management. Many thanks for the warm messages (specially on insta @thedullcook) Promise…

Milky ways

After a visit from eastern countries, and getting warmer here around Berlin, it was time to do something eatable, sweet and cold. An alternative of ice-cream if you prefer. Got some gifts from abroad, including Belarussian chocolate. That being said, it was an opportunity to try a new ingredient, so here we go. In it:…

Macadamian meatballs!

Pretty self-explanatory title. This one I learned in Venezuela (my home country). While I always though those meatballs were ONLY a part of spaghetti dishes, I never occurred to me to experiment with it. Yes, I can be delusional as that. In it: Cucumber Potatoes 150 gr of Ground beef Mayonaise Tomato sauce Salt & pepper…

Quick choco-shake

Well, not wasting time on an intro. This one is actually quicker. In it: 1 glass of milk 2 spoons of chocolate powder hazelnuts 1 strawberry Cinnamon Whip Cream How to: In an empty glass, add the chocolate powder. Add the milk. Mix with a cocktail shaker or just a fork, quickly. Add the cream…

Monday fuel

I know, it’s Monday. You probably are not a morning person and without coffee, you can’t function. If this isn’t your case then congratulations! If  it is then, the next recipe won’t be so troublesome. Chicken, we all love it. In it: Chicken breast 1 Carrot 1 BIG potato Yellow bell pepper Salt & Pepper Celery…

Meaty treat

This time, I decided to play a bit with the sides. All quite simple, but just adding a few tricks here and there. You might need a bit over 20 min to put everything together. In it: Beef filet 2 mushrooms 3 onion slices Red bell pepper 1 cup of rice Rucola 2 potatoes Salt & pepper…

Russify it!

As most people who knows me, they are aware that I spent some time in Moscow. Was quite an insightful time for me and learned a lot about the Slavic culture. Their traditions, ways of thinking and of course, despite the massive cold, their food! I do hope to visit it again, in the meantime….

I saw that chicken somewhere

Hey guys! it’s been almost 2 weeks of that much-needed hiatus. Now I’m back, ready to keep posting and enjoying Berlin of course. Brough some new ideas (besides getting Colombian coffee from mom), new pics and of course, waiting for your feedback. I got this Idea from Cowei Restaurant and I gotta say, I wanted to…

Cold red treat

Before taking a blog-break, I will post a last one. Cold treat for the summer to come. quite easy (and cheap). In it: Strawberries, as many as you like. Whip cream. 2 table spoons of nutella. 2 table spoons of powdered sugar. Powdered cinnamon. How to: Take the root out of the strawberries and dig…
