Red is for red apples pie

It is so nice to spend couple of hours with friends. These little chit-chat makes wonders to us. If with freshly baked apple pie and tea even better. 1 cup white flour 1 spoon corn flour 1 cup butter or margarine 1 pinch salt 1/3 cup sugar 1 cup nuts, melted 2 spoons vanilla sugar […]


Sweet plum dumplings

I just can’t find the perfect theme for my blog. I love that one as is simple but I wish my photos to be bigger. Just a little bit 🙂 I love bigger ones. Actually I love photos. Since ever. More than any text that was ever written. Squash or pumpkin soup plus sweet plum dumplings and here is easy, simple […]


I enjoy when my brother comes around for a dinner. It is so much fun! The other day I asked him what would like for a desert this time. It was Tiramisu again 🙂 Served with sweet white vine is not that bad… I loved BIG blackboards since I was little. When I’ll have mine each […]

Baked beans & cheesy bread rolls

For me it is still ‘beans’ season. Last night I prepared my favourite version of baked beans with peppers and vegetable. Freshly baked bread rolls goes great along with. Ingredients for that: onion, garlic, fresh olive oil, red peppers, carrot, tomato puree, ketchup, white beans, green beans, corn, parsley, salt and lots of hot chilli […]

Angry birds & Chocolate cake

I wanted to prepare Angry birds cake. I bought sugar paste, paste colors and some basic cake decorating tools. As I am complete beginner I knew that was quite a challenge 🙂 I was so thankful for all great instructions at youtube.com. I’d learn here how to catch the right colour shade, figured out the right shape and proportions… it […]

Pumpkin themed evening

Continued with pumpkin empanadas, sweet white mulled wine and a good movie (classic never goes out of style). Ok I have to admit, I finished with Eat, pray love movie 🙂 Anyways, […]


We were blessed with half a meter of fluffy snow these week. It’s almost like 20 or more years ago, when winters were ‘real’ winters. With snow that last from late October till mid March. Quiche is a simple dinner, take 10 minutes to prepare (+ half an hour for baking ;)) There are so […]

Lemon & poppy seeds cake

About a year ago I received Hummingbird Bakery cookbook as a Birthday present. There is a ‘ lemon and poppy-seed cake’ recipe. As I hadn’t the ring mould I decided to use regular cake mould. While preparing the ‘filling’ I figure out that my guests won’t like it as is not creamy enough. Instead of sugar […]

Chicken pie

I totally fall in love with these little ceramic mini cocottes. They are available in large variation of shapes, sizes and colours. Perfect for me as I can’t easily decide on colour or shape. Therefore I am using smaller ones that holds one portion each. That is reasonably handy as I am preparing dinner for vegetarian and non vegetarian. That way I could […]
