Weekend In Rome

Last spring we went to Rome for the weekend, it was a perfect a romantic getaway to skip the boring weather here in the north. And we stayed in the heart of room in one of those lovely local neighborhoods. 

I enjoyed taking photographs of the lovely city, my guy surprised me by his super night time photography skills. I can never compete with him even with the things I am good at.

Spring Planting: Top Flowers for 2016

I love digging in the dirt and planting each year, flowers are one of the simple pleasures to me. Each year at this time I start planting in our balcony and house windows. I plant everything from different type of flowers, herbs and some vegetables. The weather has been a bit unstable lately so some of the plants I planted few weeks ago died unfortunately, especially when we went away on easter holiday to the mountains cabin.

Now I planted these lovely flowers and some herbs hopping the weather will start improving than I will buy a small olive tree and some vegetables. Here is their info:

  • Pansy

Cool weather is just what pansy prefers. It's an annual that gardeners flock to because it's one of the best flowers to plant in spring for early-season containers and window boxes, relishing the variety in petal color as much as the cheery uplifted blooms.

Name: Viola x wittrockiana

Growing conditions: Sun or part shade and moist, well-drained soil

Size: To 10 inches tall and 12 inches wide

Zones: 4-8

  • Double Rock Rose

Rock rose makes spring-flower lovers wait until late in the season for blooms, but that extra dose of patience is worth it. Double varieties such as this one are one of the best flowers to plant in spring, with a profusion of petals on low-growing shrubs in both spring and early summer.

Name: Helianthemum 'Annabel'

Growing conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil

Size: To 1 foot tall and 2 feet wide

Zones: 6-8

  • Chrysanthemum

Create some fireworks in your fall garden with a generous helping of chrysanthemums. These autumn bloomers work just as well in containers as they do in the border. Flowers are available in red, orange, purple, white, and yellow, and vary in size from cute buttonlike blooms to softball-size giants. Chrysanthemums will come back every year, but they have a tendency to die out after a few seasons. That’s why it’s a good idea to plant new chrysanthemums every year.

Salmon Pie Recipe

Hello food lovers, I made this lovely pie today and it tastes delicious. the original recipe has a different filling but I created this using my favorite vegetables that taste great with sea food. This is a nice meal for breastfeeding moms to increase milk supply.

I made two pies as you see in the photos, one that is thicker.. because I like the dough thicker and my hubby likes it thin. I hope you enjoy it!

Pie dough

3 dl flour
150 g butter or margarine
2 tablespoons cold water


250 g shredded, smoked or cured salmon
Fresh or frozen pieces of:
Cauliflower, green beens, asparagus, kale
* optional quantity 


3 eggs
2 dl milk
1 dl cream
1 1/2 dl grated cheese
1 tsp salt
1 pinch black pepper

  • Mix together the flour and butter, add water and form a dough ball, by hand or in a food processor. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let rest in a cool place for about 30 minutes. 
  • Preheat the oven to 225ºC.
  • Roll or press out the dough in a greased baking pan, to be about 24 cm tin . Pre-bake pie crust in about 10 minutes.
  • Cut the salmon into small pieces, shred cauliflower, green beens, asparagus, kale. Divide the salmon and everything else in the pre-baked pie dough.
  • Mix together the eggs, milk, cream, grated cheese and spices. Pour the mix over filling..
