Pistachio & Matcha Cheesecake

Friday, 17 March 2017

This week I feel in a huge need of  cake. Specifically cheese cake. I really cant get enough of the stuff.

I've been sampling cheesecake from every single bakery I've found. No kidding!

Oh my gosh, I really need to stop!!

On Wednesday, I woke up at 2.30am after being tossing and turning as if I were trying to heave a sack of potatoes from side to side of the bed for hours. I finally decided to get up for a wee which ended up being a major pillow moving event.

Happy Birthday to my better half!!

Today is a very special day. My dearest husband is turning 37.

We have been really busy since October last year. But today we pause to celebrate you. Your birth. Your journey. Your life.

You are probably one of the best people I know. If not the best one. While you’re not the most punctual, organised or ambitious, you are overall one of the greatest humans on this planet. And I don’t think I’ve said that to you enough times.

Apparently being pregnant it's meant to be the most magical time in a woman’s life. Even, the very point of her existence.

Just one problem. I hate every single second of it.

Before anyone calls Social Services, I should clarify. Being a mum is one of the greatest things that have happened to me. What I’m talking about is the physical process of being pregnant. As far as I can tell, it’s the Marmite of life experiences – you either love it or hate it.

When you are pregnant you can often get approached by other women telling you things like "oh, how I loved being pregnant and miss it now".

Pintxos in Bilbao!

Friday, 24 February 2017

Being originally from Granada, I thought that tapas could get no better than what you can find there. Granada is the city of free tapas. Yes FREE. That means, if you order a pint you'll probably get a double cheeseburger with fries for free. How could a tapa get better than that?

Well, there are probably thousands of spaniards who would agree with me. Tapas in Granada are definitely the best in Spain. 

Until you go to Bilbao...

Well, technically they are not the same, as in Bilbao they are called "pintxos" and in Granada "tapas". Also, whilst they are free in Granada, you'd need to pay for your pintxos (usually around 1.5‎€ each). 

So... conflict of interest over.

I'm back! Yes, I am!

Well, first of all... apologies for the massively long silence.... What was supposed to be a couple of week's break for Christmas has ended up being almost 2 months!!

I must admit I haven't bee cooking a lot lately. Bearing in mind this is a food blog, this could be a very valid reason for my absence. No cooking, no recipes, no blog.

But that is not the real reason.

The truth is that I have been working in a really exciting but extremely exhausting project...


Message from The Tiny Marmalade HQ

Friday, 9 December 2016

Things are getting really mad here at The Tiny Marmalade HQ. 

December is always a busy month for us, but this year you, our lovely customers, are exceeding all expectations. We are jamming, labeling, wrapping and posting nonstop thousands of tiny jam and marmalade jars and I must admit we feel utterly privileged to be producing a product that will be someone's gift this Christmas.

Contributing to make people feel a bit happier is something that somehow overwhelm us, but makes us feel absolutely proud and happy at the same time.

Every time one of our clients gets in touch to tell us how wonderfully wrapped their jams were, how amazing his breakfast that day was, how much fun they had sharing and sampling the different flavours and deciding which one was their favourite, all the effort, all the hours spent in peeling, jamming, wrapping and posting seem absolutely worth it.

Thanks a lot for your continuous support and please, please, please... keep spreading the love with us!!

We promise we'll be back with some delicious recipes as soon as the kitchen becomes available to cook other things but jam!

Lots of love from TTM Team.

Dear Quique,

You are five.

It sounds like such a big boy age.  This year you´ve started school.  I don’t understand how time went by so quickly. It seems like yesterday when we found out that I was pregnant, and I cried, and dad cried, because we were so happy that you chosen us as your family.

Since that day, I love you in this almost painful, indescribable way. I love to kiss your soft cheeks and smell your head. I love the way you talk to me. I love your crazy games that can take for hours to finish. They are absolutely amazing and I would like to play them every single day of my life.
