Steak Tortilla topped with Fresh Raw Vegetables Salsa and Goat Cheese

deconstructed beef tortillas

This is my version of an healthy Steak Tortillas : 100% home made from the tortillas wraps to the taco seasoning and beef filling. Instead of salsa sauce or the classic guacamole I choose to prepare a salsa of thinly diced vegetables that I topped with fresh goat cheese.

If like me you are trying to stay away from processed food as much as you can, it is the right time to prepare your own tacos seasoning.

Flourless Cake

hazelnut dates cake
Brrrr it is freezing in Auckland this morning! I am writing this post from my baby bedroom – because that is the sunniest room of the house –  with my cap on and a jacket. Do you think I am kidding? Hum well this time I am going to share some selfies to give you a good laugh ! I do not really like sharing pictures of me specially when it is 8.00 am in the morning. But I decided to engage myself at 100% in this blog and I want you to know me a bit more. And after all we all look the same in the morning so I do not have to be shy. So even if I know it sounds crazy as most of you readers are based on the other hemisphere enjoying sunny days on the beach drinking smoothies. But here is the fact it is 2C this morning in New Zealand, houses do not have heating systems and I am cold. This is me. Carine @lias SweetashoneyNZ, writing this post from Emma’s room listening a classic version of with or without you by 2Cellos here.

Today I am sharing a quick and easy winter recipe to warm up the whole family for only few dollars. It is freezing in Auckland right now and all we needed this week end was a hot Moroccan style chicken meatball meal. I love Moroccan food because of all the spices it is using. I can not found cheap ras el hanout spices here so I made a 5 spices mix myself which of course make the recipe not a true Moroccan recipe at the end! That is why I said Moroccan style !
