I’m so so happy … the house renovation is over and I can start cooking once again :) I’ve been waiting for that moment for weeks.

Tonight was an important night since I’ve cooked dinner in my new kitchen for the very first time :)  Everything  in the kitchen works well and it’s really great to be surrounded by beautiful new cupboards and kitchen appliances. Yet, I still feel a bit lost and it takes me a while to find things but I’m getting there:)

So what I’ve made is a lovely chicken provencale dish. I adjusted a recipe from The Complete Low -Fat Cookbook and I am very pleased with the final result. This is a simple dish that’s healthy, easy to prepare and marvelously tasty.

Happy healthy cooking & eating!
