Lime Cheesecake with Delicious Berry Syrup

It is time for a desert recipe, isn't it? With time you guys will see that I am best at cooking, but not the best at baking, usually who takes this part is my husband, I do make some delicious little things myself, like for example this lime cheesecake with berry syrup. It may sound a little different the ingredients I use on this one, but please trust me, it will taste amazing. It's a promise!


For the cheesecake:

1 1/2 cup (150g) of unsalted butter 
1 cup (200g) of finely ground graham cracker crumbs 
1/2 cup (100g) of oat 
1 tea spoon of vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups (600g) of cream cheese 
1 cup (150g) of sugar 
2 limes (zest and juice)
Zest of one orange
1 1/5 cups (300g) of heavy milk 

For the syrup:

2 cups (400g) of a mix of berries (in my case I used raspberries, blueberries and a little of strawberries)
1/2 cup(100g) of sugar
4 table spoons of good natural raspberry - or another berry you like - jam (go for the ones that are not so sweet, you're already going to add sugar to the syrup so you don't want it to be too sweet)

A big piece of top sirloin cap (half pound or more)
Sea salt
1 package of onion soup powder
A good amount of ambient temperature salted butter for the sirloin

But in this case, because I was hungrier then a salad can take care of, I transformed it into a kind of sandwich with a pita bread (feel free to use a different kind of bread, but try to use one that is hard enough that won’t get soak with the salad dressing).

Healthy Soy Hamburger


Alright guys, today I'm going to post a recipe that I didn't plan. It only happen because when I opened up my fridge today it was missing so many ingredients to make something more elaborate that I needed to cook something real simple and fast

No, I'm not against buying frozen food I just prefer food that I make on my own, but for this time where all I had in the fridge was beer, some tomatoes, cheese and lettuce, I have open my freezer and check out what I have there. In my case I have some soy hamburgers, but you can use regular hamburger if you don't like this, or even a steak if you are lucky enough to have one.

This recipe is awesome for you to kill your interior fat kid that is dying for a hamburger but you don't wanna give up on your diet. So why not take some calories out of the way and make it without the bread. Don't worry you will love it and feel good after eat a hamburger.

Tuna Pate

Quick and super ease tuna pate for those moments of lazyness and hundryness that occasionally attack us.

15min to prepare
3 table spoons of mayonnaise
1 can of chunks of tuna with no liquid
1 tomato
1/2 onion
1 clove of garlic
4 olives
2 table spoons of Parmesan cheese
Black pepper
Olive oil

Chop the tomato, garlic, onion and olives in small pieces and put it on a bow. Now that everything is chopped you just need to put in the rest of the ingredients: mayonnaise, tuna, Parmesan, and as much as you like of pepper, oregano and oil.

Just mix it all together and it's done.

You won't need salt on this since the tuna and olive already has a lot on it.

It taste awesome with warm toast and will kill your hungry belly in the middle of the day. Enjoy!
