who we are | our blog

Hello, My name is Marilyn. While living in Portugal, at one time of my live I was a Fashion Designer. Now I am a proud mother of two, a wife and enjoying the simple things in life. My husband Mauro and I now live in Canada.

Devoted to our family and home baking, we share our passion on food, recipes, places in Portugal and people who have inspired us. Portugal has a lot too offer, we just have to find where.

Our Blog

We recreate Traditional Portuguese dishes as well as our own creative fusion cuisine, we discover new flavours and ways to mix ingredients. Our cooking is a reflection of the different European countries that we have visited and the ones we might one day visit. In our kitchen we travel around Europe and that is what makes us happy.

We want to inspire young cooks, moms and dads, friends and family, newbies and foodies to join us on our journey in the kitchen. Without spending a lot, we show you how to cook simple healthy, stunning recipes.

We hope you sit for a while and enjoy our blog.
