When did you start blogging?
1 year ago, but I have been writing vegetables recipes for lespaniersverts.be for more almost 7 years (an organic farm)
How did you decide on the name of your blog?
I like vegetables and my inspiration has no borders thus travelling with vegetables recipes seemed natural although I am not vegetarian nor vegan, just passionate about organic fruits and vegetables.

Do you prefer eating in or eating out?

In winter it would be Harira , the famous Moroccan soup. In summer, any fresh fish dish, grilled sardines being one my favorites
What is your favourite dessert?
So many to choose from but I don’t have a sweet tooth. However I never say no to a good “Moelleux au chocolat”.
How do you like your eggs in the morning?
I like simple “oeufs aux plats”(fried eggs) , cooked in olive oil, spiced with cumin : cumin is the perfect spice for eggs!

Yes, chicken tagine with preserved lemons and olives, a childhood memory.

Every cook has failure now and then but definitely macaroons!
