Had to come up with something for a Saturday dinner and found this tart while looking through a BBC Good Food book called “101 cheap eats”. I was a bit sceptical about the taste but I was not disappointed. The result was creamy and dreamy ;). Totally worth trying!
Yum, yum… Had some leftover full cream and wanted to use it on something tasty and lunch-appropriate. I found this recipe on my guru’s website and said to myself “hmm… crepes with full cream? how will they taste?” Believe me, it is worth making them. I enjoyed my crepes with apple mousse (how else? ;)) but you can serve them with all the sweet fillings one likes. Enjoy!
I wanted to make this English tart for a long time. I was looking for a proper recipe and of course found it on my favourite blog. According to Wikipedia, Bakewell tart was developed from the Bakewell pudding (this one was made by accident in 1860s). It consists of a shortcust pastry base, spread with jam and covered with a sponge-like filling enriched with ground almonds (known as frangipane). I liked the combination of raspberries and almonds. Try it yourself!
My excuse for making these was the fact that my crocuses were flowering and I wanted them on the picture ;). Seriously though, these coconut cookies are delicious. Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside and on top of that with a hint of honey. How can a coconut fan (me!) want more? The recipe comes from Asia and she took it from Linda Dannenberg’s book “Paris Boulangerie Patisserie. Recipes from Thirteen Outstanding French Bakeries”. Enjoy!
Another Sunday, another pancake. Apparently the name “Dutch baby” was introduced by a daughter of Victor Manca, which was the owner of a family-run restaurant. The “Dutch” refers to the group of Pennsylvania Dutch, where “Dutch” was meant as “deutsch”. I must say I really love this recipe because spending time by the hot pan and flipping the pancakes is not my favourite task. The taste of this pancake is great, the center of it is almost custard-like. Sprinkled with a little lemon juice and icing sugar makes a perfect dish. I took my recipe from here, enjoy!
Since a long time I wanted to make this kind of pie. There is something tempting in a way you eat it and how does it taste and look like (or it might just be me and my imagination). I used the recipe of Gordon Ramsay for hot-water pastry and I made the filling basing on recipe from here. Whole thing was really tasty and I am looking forward to prepare another one but with a different filling. Enjoy!
I know that omelette is not exactly a cooking challenge but I was looking for a recipe which would make it taste more delicate and would not be just a different way of serving scrambled eggs. This omelette is very tasty and it definitely made me believe that omelettes can be a good lunch/dinner option. I combined few recipes here and have no clue where did I find them. Sorry! So or so enjoy!
