From a sketch to a space...

As a designer there´s nothing more gratified than to see fisically something that started in your head. Its amazing to see a picture of something you planned for hours in your computer. Thats why Id like to share with you this babys room I designed for a friend. Though its not completly done and the pics are not that good, so far Im loving the resutl. What do you think?

I promise to add better photos soon....

Homemade Hummus

One of my favorite ingredients lately is hummus and after eating  this delicious middle eastern dip for several weeks and trying different brands to find the best one (so far Oblea its my favorite)  I decided to give it a try and make one my self. 

I have to admit I was surprised of how easy it was not only to make it but to find the ingredients, I found everything in a regular supermarket and you don’t always find hummus on every supermarket.

So I will start with an ingredient called tahini, some recipes said you dont really need this but I love the flavor and texture it gives to the mixture,  it is supposed to be easy to find but as I couldn't  found it I end up doing it as well. This is the recipe I use.

Once you buy or do this special ingredient the hummus is next.

  • 1 can or 400g of chickpeas (its much better if you just buy the can, easier and better taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of tahini
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoos water if needed for texture.

Another great thing about hummus its all you have to do is mix all the ingredients in a food procesor. That simple!

Now that I´ve learned how to do it I promise I will give you great recipes for things to cook with this great taste dip so wait for them.

If you need a better explanation I found this great blog with excellent tips and lots of pictures hummus recipe

Pinky Birdy Baby Shower

I design this cute birdies for my new nephews baby shower, I repeat my favorite recipe of cupcakes (carrot and cranberries)  but this time mini and my mom had the idea of serving them with yogurt, red fruits and granola. The result was not only pretty but delicious and healthy, a huge success.
