This recipe,actually salad is as simple as making a tea.

Boil beans until well done.

Chop finely some fennel,some tomato in small cubes,fresh onion in rolls,salt and pepper,olive oil and balsamico.

Add some carrot if you like and feta cheese!!

Imagine how would be to get paid for your recipes!

Hello to all housewives,prospectuous homechefs and students.

What if you could get paid for what you cook everyday at home?
-Do you have a good camera and some imaginations?
-Do you have some time free per day to work on this?

I am waiting your comments..Personally,as a chef,i write recipes for magazines,creating e-books and uploading recipes to sites on my free time while drinking a coffee and still reaching 600$/month just for fun.

I wish i could work online more,because internet makes you famous :P but i do not have the necessary time.I would be happy to help you.
Best Regards,

Kostas Magoulas.

Light and different scrambled eggs.

Well,when it comes to light,people think that is not tasty though.
That is false,try using only the white part,whisked,with some herbs adition.
Serve them with previous day’s leftovers,so you can make a quick meal or dinner.
Also,a great thought is to make a light omelette,but that requires oil,so it is your choice!!!
Have a great evening,light or not :-)
