 This is a new guest post from my dear friend and wonderful cook, Octavian, who wrote the recipe and took all photos. Enjoy!

I like all berries, but huckleberries are by far my favorites. Except for gorging which is by far the healthiest activity you could do with berries, here’s a refreshing idea for a smooth and fresh drink to assort your breakfast or for combating the thirst of summer.

Lemon and garlic chicken liver

Totally loved the chicken liver cooked in butter! It’s the best way to cook chicken liver, because if you cook them right they are tender inside and crispy outside. Check out this absolutely fantastic dish!

Lemon, butter and garlic asparagus

by viviana on July 8, 2012 in Mains

The past month was the most painful period of my life. I definitely have a different view on life and important things now, and I also have a piece of advice for all my readers: life is not as long as it seems; we should spend as much time as we can with our loved ones. I choose to spend my time with my little family (now, sadly, even smaller…) and I do not feel in any way unaccomplished, lacking social life or other pitiful things people feel when they do not choose to take care of someone and love them dearly. And cooking still plays a large role in my life :).

This is a completely new recipe: my Grandfather came to visit and I cooked asparagus for the first time. We all liked the celery/onion/fennel looking and tasting vegetable, and I promised to try it again.
