In Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com8 Comments

I’m still nowhere near with writing up all about our 3 week holiday on the Central Coast in California.

In Life, Style by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

These days I’m quite busy trying to find some clever decorating ideas, which doesn’t cost the earth, but they will add a bit of a style to our place.

In Green by eva.katona@yahoo.com11 Comments

As you know I’m a big fan of upcycled and regenerated products. I hate wasting nice things – just because I can’t make a use of them anymore, they shouldn’t be just thrown away.

Homemade Pizza Sauce With Extra Veggies Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com41 Comments

To be fair, it’s not much of a recipe, rather just an idea to share. My boy is on a restricted diet, which is beyond being a picky eater. He has sensory issues with food, with lots of food groups. Therefore he’s almost exclusively on a diet consisting of pizza, pasta with tomato sauce, cheese and cereal. On good days …
