The perfect summer cookie

Once the first rays of glorious sunshine hit my face, stretching the days to a maximum and making everyone come out of their houses, I basically live outside.

A foodies day in Lisbon

I love traveling for the sake of travel, getting out of my comfort zone and discovering new places but the real reason I go away is the food. I think in many places food is not only an integral part of the culture but also the central part of it. Think big family dinners late…
