A big congratulations to the gorgeous Ella of Pure Ella and on her pregnancy! She is 37 weeks pregnant now (dying to know whether it’s a boy or a girl) and we are throwing her a special Virtual Baby Shower today (Wednesday, May 7th). Pure Ella is a beautiful photographic food blog that covers vegan and and mostly gluten-free recipes. She strives to help everyone to live better and live healthier through pure and good foods.

Keeping Dinners Interesting for a Fish Lover – Seared Ahi Tuna with Mixed Greens and Asian Citrus Vinaigrette Salad Dressing My husband had a health checkup a few years back and didn’t get the best results, and has since been eating tons of fish and chicken. For chicken I grew up learning many different styles and recipes, and even just winging it and throwing together some different familiar ingredients usually worked pretty well. For fish, however I felt a little bit out of my element. I made a lot of different fillets and put those on sandwiches or cut them up into salads, but he and I were both hungry (literally) for some new. Well it took a couple of years but I know have just as much fun working with fish and have added quite a few fish recipes to my repertoire...
And there are days when I don’t feel like stepping in the kitchen at all, there are days when I feel like chewing on a store-bought dessert and don’t even look at my baking pans or ingredients… but then I snap out of this mood and remind myself the baking, and cooking for that matter, is fun, is my passion, the one thing I have motivation and calling for. I mean, yes, baking can be that scary, complex and difficult to master thing, but luckily not every aspect of it comes with too many ingredients or far too complicated directions. And this fudgy chocolate loaf cake is precisely that – easy recipe that tastes amazing, definitely better and healthier than any store-bought dessert you can think of and so simple that even a child could master it. It’s the kind of recipe that you mix in one bowl and bake quickly then enjoy simple or with ice cream or with fruits or in a trifle or a pudding – it’s versatile so let your imagination go wild when it comes to toppings or garnishes!
