Healthy fish recipe


Healthy fish recipe

Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the nice weather. I  notice a lot of blooming flowers everywhere and   enjoy the nice walks by the sea in the afternoons as I find it quite relaxing.  There is something about the fresh air, the sound of  the waves and the seagulls playing with them. In fact the recipe of this week it is deeply related with the sea, as I noticed that me and my husband don’t eat enough fresh fish, so I bought some fresh sprats from my favourite local fish monger and thought of making a healthy Italian fish recipe. I simply added some nice basic ingredients like parsley, bread crumbs, lemon and tomato to then make the most amazing layered fish cake. I loved the results so I thought it was worth it to share this recipe with you. This is definitely very…

From the Ground Up: How Architects Can Learn from the Organic and Local Food Movements

Under The Shadow of the Tien Shan Mountains

Diary Of A Traveller

Travelling through the Tien Shan Mountains in the middle of winter with my skis and snowshoes is something really special to me. Im always in love with mountains, it gives a sense of calmness in my soul and standing on top of a mountain, I feel nearer to heaven.

Discworld: Where My Heart Lives


You never see your loved one’s flaws. You fall in love too quickly, in a rush of delight at finding such a person, a burst of wonder that, in all this wide and fragile world, there exists a mind just like your own. Before long, they have settled down inside of you, in the vulnerable parts of your chest. Any doubt, any flaw, is drowned out by the rhythmic thump of a voice that says you are not alone.

It’s like that with books.

There are so many books, so many writers I could tell you about, which would make me look clever, or deep, or wise. But let’s be honest with each other for a moment: those are not the books which live within you. The books you fall in love with are the books with flaws. They are the books you devoured late at night under the sheets…
