Raspberries in a glass

I just love raspberries. When I was a child we had raspberries in our garden and I couldn't wait for them to ripen! One of my dream is it to have raspberry and blackberry bushes in my garden. For this smoothie I had to pick up the berries at the local fruit market. They cost a lot but are really good! Here is what I used for my smoothie:
One handful of fresh raspberries
One handful of fresh pineapple
A splash of coconut milk
One frozen banana 
A spoonful of agave syrup
Blend. Done. Enjoy.

Strange colour but oh so good! Here is what I used: three apples, one pear, one kiwi, one handful of blackberries!

NYC Bagles at home in Italy

Sometimes I get these cravings for certain foods that are unavailable to me here in Italy, such as my grandma's green bean stew, Nova Scotia chowder or New York style bagels. And when I mean, I am having cravings, I really have cravings, cannot think of anything else. Our of desperation I looked up New York bagel recipes as could not believe there actually were some! After reading carefully through many, I decided to try the one from "the sophisticated gourmet" -and I do not regret it! The recipe is easy to follow and straightforward. You do need to dedicate some time to the process but it's so so worth it! Have a try.
