This is an official comeback and not April’s Fool. This must have been the longest I ever stayed away from blogging. And beyond the usual reasons (tons of work at the office as well in the household) there were other reasons also: I lost my godmother recently. I was very close to her, she was my second mother. Losing her was extra painful for the whole family. I really miss her a lot and since then I am trying to cope with the idea.
Luckily my busy everyday schedule has helped me a lot. Also, the support from the rest of my close family is overwhelming and very much appreciated.
So all this time, since she got sick until her the day we lost her, I really didn’t want to blog. I tried to get over it through travelling, spending a lot of time with the rest of my family and keeping my mind busy.
This doesn’t mean that I stopped cooking. The recipe that follows is one that I enjoyed enough to get me to my photo spot and get some shots of my plate.
It is vegan and tasty at the same time and includes one of my favorite ingredients: kale.
Please keep in mind that kale is quite hard to swallow raw so if you are not up to it you can always replace it with your favorite green salad.
I will try to be more frequent on my postings and try to follow that life goes on…
