You would give me a box of cereals and I would become a dangerous child. I think I would always eat almost half a box at once. Maybe that’s why I became a chubby kid. There were some cereals that were almost prohibited at home. Me and a box of Cocoa Krispies was a recipe for disaster. The thing is the f*ckin cereals would shrink and vanish in the hot milk. It would just lose all it’s crunbox-cereal-lucky-charmschiness in seconds. And of course I would add some more in the milk. It was impossible not eat more than half a box every time.Read moreMore Tag
Actually I do remember the first time I had a smoothie – it was in the gym. When I started “pumping iron” some years ago, I also started drinking protein shakes.

No man. I’m sorry. I can’t. I tried carrot cake with cream cheese frosting many times. Vegan and non-vegan (Yes, I was not born vegan. Surprise, surprise). I’m not saying it’s bad. It is quite nice. But carrot cake is with chocolate frosting.Read moreMore Tag
It is quite normal for someone to go out to eat something and be delighted with some dish at a restaurant. To eat something that makes you want to come back to that same place, over and over again. Sometimes you wish you had that recipe. Sometimes you couldn’t care less. Probably because you wouldn’t […]Read moreMore Tag
I wanted to be many things when I was a kid. I wanted to be a fisherman, fireman, austronaut, even a junky. Don’t ask me, I just thought junkies were cool dudes. And, of course, like any other kid, I wanted to be a ninja. Damn, it would be even better if I could be […]Read moreMore Tag
