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.

I am and have always been an eager reader. I think I learned to read before I could walk, and I have been swallowing book after book since I can remember.

I enjoy reading pretty much anything with pages. But if I had to choose a literary genre I would choose children's literature without a doubt.

Over the years, I´ve put together a huge collection of children´s books. And I must admit that most of times I pretend I´m buying them for the boys (although then I write "Paloma" in the "this book belongs to...." page).

Life always brings the right people your way.


One way or another the right people will find you at the right time. There is supportive people that will hold your hand without asking questions. This is the people you need to keep close to you. But sometimes, you could also find the kind of people who is able to tell you what you need to hear but don´t want to. This kind of people is also good to keep. Even if we cannot see why.

I loved traveling when I was single. I loved traveling with my husband just after we were married.

“Get your traveling in now, because you won’t be able to do it once you have kids.”

I heard this statement many times while my husband and I were backpacking around the world. And, sadly, the more I heard these words, the more I started to believe them to the point that when our eldest son was born, we resigned ourselves to the idea that family and travel don’t mix.


But soon after that, I just went and impulsively booked a flight to Rome. We wanted to prove that the idea we had internalized was wrong and that our days of travel didn’t have to stop.


And oh how glad I am we did so.
