If you have celebrated Christmas, chances are you have eaten too much on the past few days. There's nothing wrong with that, I'm the first that has been eating more than usual lately, especially sweets. What can I say, cavallucci, the typical Christmas treats from my town, are so good I just can't resist.

I know it's quite uncommon for someone my age, but I love every single member of the Brassica family, from the delicate white cauliflower, to the incredibly stinky yet delicious Romanesco broccoli, to the colourful and crunchy red cabbage. Among them all, broccoli will always have a special place in my heart because it's with them I've first fallen in love with.

On an August evening last summer I had dinner at a seafront restaurant. A rather disappointing dinner, in part because after reading the menu I wanted to order the tuna with pistachios but at first the waitress told me they had no tuna, then, after asking, she told me they were out of pistachios, and thus I was forced to order something else, in part because some of the courses and especially the service left much to be desired.

If you haven't noticed already, I love broccoli. And quinoa. So when I saw Kate's Broccoli, Cheddar & Quinoa Gratin, I immediately saved the recipe. Of course I wanted to try it. I mean, how do you even beat a warm, comforting and cheesy meal on cold days?

Remember that time I told you about buying oyster mushrooms and having no idea what to make with them? Well, I saved several recipes back then, one of those being this egg drop soup - or 蛋(dàn)花(huā)汤(tāng), which literally means egg flower soup - with those delicious mushrooms.

Thanksgiving is coming, and even though I am not American, I know this festivity pretty well because of all the movies and TV shows I've seen taking place on that day of the year. And if there's something I've learned is that Americans are pretty much divided into two groups, the pumpkin pie lovers, and the sweet potato pie lovers.

Brassicas aka broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussel sprouts are finally in season, and when I see all that beauty my heart fills with happiness. But it's not only the beauty, those vegetables are indeed rich in vitamin C, minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium, not to mention the high fiber content.

When it comes to potatoes, sweet potatoes are my favourite because they are full of fiber, iron and beta carotene, plus they taste amazing. And they are also becoming my favourite lunch, because whether I don't feel like spending a lot of time cooking or I don't have a lot of time to cook, baked sweet potatoes makes for a great meal.

I remember exactly when I made my first avocado chocolate mousse. It was last year, on December the 16th, and I remember it so well because it was the day the new Star Wars came out. As the avid fan I am, I bought the ticket for the first available screening which was at 2:30 pm, and long story short I had to eat something fast because I am a tremendously slow eater.
