foodie fridays: puple kale, oregano and gouda paninni

the ingredients for the paninni
    This paninni is great for lunch! :)

         2 slices of bread 
         1 tbsp olive oil 
         3/4 cup grated gouda
         1 leaf kale, coarsely chopped
         around 5 oregano leaves
         directions:  heat the olive oil in a pan, meanwhile sandwich the kale, cheese and oregano between the bread and add it to the pan. Press with a paninni press, if you don't have one use a heavy pot. Cook in till the cheese has melted and the sandwich is slightly browned. Remove the paninni from the pan, cut in half and eat.
    bon apetit!

foodie fridays: cara cara orange + coco nib semi-fredo

  A few days ago I came across a Giada De Laurentiis recipe in one of her cookbooks for a citrus semi-fredo, I changed it up a bit by adding cara-cara orange juice instead of lemon, and some coco nibs for a bit of chocolat-y crunchiness. The end result tasted to me like a mixture of a orange creamsicle and a citrus tart.
Here are a few pics:

My 3 day vacation in Vancouver, British Colombia

I loved Vancouver, it a very beautiful, diverse and sophisticated city (almost everyone I saw was at least wearing a peacoat it seemed), this is only a few pics of this gorgeous city.

    the day we visited the Vancouver aquarium it was packed, we could hardly find a parking spot! some of the aquariums popularity is from their beluga whales, they're adorable!
