I don’t know about what it’s like for other food bloggers but my family isn’t that happy about me taking photos of what we are going to eat all the time, that’s why I haven’t been posting that many pasta recipes lately. Now and then I have to pretend that I cook just for them without any thoughts about blogging just to keep them quiet. In the beginning when I started almost a year ago, they had much more patience with the whole thing but when I started this blog as well they began to look at the whole thing with far more suspicion. Sometimes they even accuse me of being obsessed, something I obviously deny vehemently although I suspect that they are right to a certain degree, so when they are in that mood, I just cook without posting about it and wait until they calm down a bit! Yesterday I managed to cook and take pics without them actually realizing what I was doing and today’s post is the result. Ha!

150 g/ 6,3 oz snap beans

– Slice the onion and sauté it together with the chopped garlic and the crumbled peperoncino in some oil for 2-3 minutes.
– Clean the beans and cut them in 2-3 cm long pieces, add them to the onion and let it all sauté for about 4-5 minutes.
