In the Green Kitchen: Fruit Infused Water


Summer is here! Heat is scorching and refreshments needed! Fresh cold water is delicious, but since last summer I have discovered an amazing new and delicious way to drink water. It is called fruit infused water, and I am discovering new and new combinations of herbs and spices.

What you do is combine delicious flavors and let them stay in the water for a few minutes. Then put ice and enjoy the colorful deliciousness in your glass (or jar)!

Here are my four favorite combinations:

Cucumber + Lemon + Basil

It is refreshing and delicious. A little sour from the lemon, and satiating and quenching from the cucumber. The basil gives it just a little exotic flair.

Watermelon + Mint

It is so light and sweet! I love the freshness of the mint in combination with sweetness of the watermelon.

Grapefruit + Rosemary

It is the most potent one in terms of flavor. The grapefruit gives it a bitter-sweet citrusy punch and the rosemary just takes you away to a filed in France.

Orage+ Lemon+ Thyme

This one is the boy’s favourite. It is sweet and resembles Orange lemonade. Simply delicious!

Have you tried fruit infused water or you prefer the fizzy drinks from the store?

Лятото е тук, а с него и безумните жеги, в които са нужни много течности и свежест. От миналото лято открих плодовите води- това за мен е нов и много вкусен начин да пия вода. Прави се като плодове и подправки се накисват във вода и се оставят 15-20 минути да си пуснат ароматите. Така водата инфузирана с плодове и подправки е лека, приятна и утоляваща. Това, което правите след това е слагате в чаша с много лед и се наслаждавате на ароматната и шарена чаша хлад.

Това са моите любими комбинации…

Краставица + Лимон + Босилек

Тази комбинация е тотална класика! Леко кисела, ароматна и с вкус на лукс.

Диня+ Мента

Тази комбинация е толкова лека и сладка. Динята, в комбинацията с ментата прави водата много приятна и освежаваща.

Грейпфрут + Розмарин

Тази комбинация е за ценители – леко горчива от грейпфрута, а розмарина ви изтрелва някъде в прованс.

Портокал+Лимон+Мащерка

Тази е любимата на момчето. Прилича на оранжада, но не е толкова сладка, а просто ароматна.

On Trend: Happy Socks


I was inspired a week ago by one of my coleagues who always had matching socks to the outit. And here we are not talking dark gray or navy socks, we are talking fun, colorful, wonderful, happy socks. Actually there is even a brand – http://www.happysocks.com/

Here is what I am talking about, as I searched on the internet and there are several very cool examples of gorge guys with happy socks.
