Spring is a beautiful time of year. It (usually) features some of the nicest weather of the year as days start to warm up but are still not too hot; it brings a lot of beautiful, colorful, and fragrant flowers and for those like me who loves them, brings a lot of tasty vegetables like asparagus, peas, fava, and radishes.

It's that time of the year again when we are surrounded with beautiful, fragrant flowers. Acacia flowers, also known as Robinia or Black Locust flowers, are unfortunately available for a few weeks only, so it's best to pick them when they have just opened. They look like tiny bunches of grapes, with little white flowers that smell and taste like honey - bees love them too - and a hint of jasmine.

Happy International Hummus Day everyone! Yes, there is such a thing and it's today and I doubt there is a better way to celebrate the most famous middle-eastern dish than eating it. Since we are celebrating hummus, I believe it is important to take some time and make it ourselves. Sure, the one from the store is ready to eat, but is it even good?

I remember the first time I tried tofu. It was raw in a salad and I honestly struggled to finish it. It was bland and boring and I don't do bland and boring. But I also don't give up easily, so I put a lot of effort into bringing this remarkably nutritious ingredient to the next level. I stir-fried it. I roasted it. I even baked with it. And I eventually came to love it.
