Hi there, thank you for visiting my tiny corner of the world wide web. For the time being I have to place my priorities somewhere else, so there will be no regular updates. Hopefully we will meet again in a near future.

spinach & mint pie

This is one of my oldest recipes, and I’ve been meaning to share it with you ever since I started this blog, but for some reason I didn’t. However, apparently it’s time.
