Tajine meatballs with chickpeas and tomato sauce

This recipe was born last night after I got home so late that I had only 30 minutes left for cooking. Tom challenged me to be as quick as a take out 🙂 The spices and sauce resemble tajine, but the meatballs are so quick to make that you don`t have to cook it for…

Spicy wantons (shaped like gyoza)

Chili con carne with dark chocolate

Chili con carne is proper comfort food. It doesn`t require any special ingredients and almost no cooking skills. It also is one of this dishes that you can just let it cook on its own. I like to add few bits of dark chocolate at the end of the cooking process. It is then when…
