In this post I go answer the questions of Camila Borges!
She asked me about the food I liked, what my hobbies and what clothes I liked.

Let’s answer!
I love pasta, fruit and sweets! All types of fruits I love, I think because when I was child my grandmother had a lot of plants like orange tree, strawberries, araçá, goiaba, manga and others. I really love make different types of pastas and eat a lot!
Here, in my blog, there are recipes of sweets that I like to do!
On my free time, I like cook, read and sew! Also I like do a lot of different things, however I don't have time to do all. I wear comfortable clothes that provide a life happy.

At the last post, Mary asked me how is the situation with organic foods in my country and if health food was readily available and affordable.

Well, I think, in Brasil we just have organics food if we produced or going to a special types of marked with is possible buy! In street market I believe there more than organics food.
Thanks os the comments in last port!

Health food!!


Last week I look a interesting programe on TV about healty food!!

It´s talk about 10 super foods for healty!!

- BERRIES : They're high in vitamin and fiber content.

-CITRUS : We all know citrus fruits are loaded with vitamin C; one orange has a whole day’s requirement. But that's not all citrus fruits have to offer.

-VEGETABLES: Green vegetables like broccoli and spinach are sky-high in potent anti-cancer compounds like sulforaphane and quercitin.

-WHOLE GRAINS : They’re delicious, inexpensive and packed with protein, B vitamins, minerals and fiber.

-SALMON: They reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.

- LEGUMES :Legumes are rich in folic acid, calcium, iron, potassium, zinc and antioxidants

-NUTS AND SEEDS: Although high in calories, nuts often enable people to maintain or lose weight. A small handful eaten between meals or added to salads, grains or vegetables gives a sense of satiety and results in less total food intake. Nuts have great nutritional benefits, as well.

-LEAN PROTEINS: Protein is crucial for tissue repair, building and preserving muscle, and making important enzymes and hormones.

-TEAS :All true teas contain polyphenols, powerful antioxidants believed to protect against heart disease, certain cancers and stroke.

-OLIVE OIL: Olive oil is an excellent source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats that may lower the bad cholesterol and raise the good cholesterol.

All this food its naturals and organics food !!

Try to eat and have a better live!!

I wait your comment!!

Magic Lemon Pie

Created in the early 1900s, this pie was touted as "magic." Adding lemon juice to Eagle Brand creates a rich, creamy filling, without cooking, that is easy to make, delicious every time and never fails, even for first-time bakers.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Makes one (8- or 9-inch) pie

1 (14-ounce) can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind or 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
2 eggs, separated
1 (8- or 9-inch) graham cracker or baked pie crust
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 325°F. In medium bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon rind or extract and egg yolks; stir until mixture thickens. Pour into chilled graham cracker crust or cooled pie crust.

In medium bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar on medium speed, 1 tablespoon at a time; beat 4 minutes longer or until sugar is dissolved and stiff glossy peaks form.

Spread meringue over pie, carefully sealing to edge of crust to prevent meringue from shrinking. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
