Remember, Tequila + Lime + Salt = perfect combo! Here is another recipe that came in handy when my oven was on the blitz a few years ago. No need to bake and assembled very quickly... but leave time for it to set. 

I think it works well and more elegantly if you omit the crust and pour the filling into margarita glasses and top with a few pretzels! Either way, you won't be disappointed.

There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of homemade Chicken and Dumplings! Everyone makes dumplings differently and, although these are not up to the standard of my Tennessee family, we still enjoy them!

When I saw these spirally rolled sausages, I thought... hmmm, that would make a fun "Toad in a Hole". However, it resembles a snail so I've renamed it.

Here is an easy soup recipe that has the added level of chestnuts and chorizo to make it extra special.

We are almost approaching the end of September and most of us are very busy settling into the new school year and even busier work schedules.

September is a bit like new year to me! New decisions, resolutions, goals for a new season! Maybe that’s a way to cope to with the end-of-summer-syndrome!

Actually, autumn is a great season to embrace changes, get stronger and lighter as nature does every year.

Here are some suggestions and events that will help you to re-energize and continue stronger on your busy days. We all deserve these breaks and self-investments to continue with fresher minds and bodies!

Hiking season!

We are so lucky to live in this beautiful region with endless hiking opportunities! We always use the Swiss Hikes website to choose, and use its app when we go. Also check out the My Switzerland website for more.

Living in Geneva, we love the hiking trails in St.Cergue, Vevey, Montreux and Neuchatel.

The best part is usually the picnic time with the amazing view of Lac Leman and the Alps! As a healthy eating fan, I always pack some fruits-nuts and raw veggies and can find a salad in bakeries (yes there are salads in bakeries now!) while my family usually prefers the delicious sandwiches!

Start trying new classes!

You might be one of those many who came back from holidays and long summer days with some extra “luggage” and want to get back into shape as soon as possible, especially before the new year craziness start!

This month most of the fitness-gym-yoga-pilates-dance studios have open house trial days. Make use of these days and start or re-start a practice that you really enjoy doing and make it an important part of your life!

If you do not feel motivated enough to start exercising again, then listen to what Mel Robbins says about motivation.
