I often face a question – where to find inspiration? I always say that I don’t need to search for it because all the most beautiful had been created by nature. I just need to go to farmer’s market and buy some seasonal goodies. I was wondering for a while what to cook with beautiful blood oranges which are on season right now and just then I bought a bunch of beautiful pink rhubarb and got the answer. A dessert! A crumble!
If you haven’t got Nina Olsson’s book “Bowls of Goodness” yet this post is the answer why you should have! I was very exited when Nina sent me a copy of her brand new book and couldn’t wait until I could try one of her recipes. Right after I started turning the pages, I stumbled upon one of the very first recipes. Buckwheat porridge with pear and rhubarb compote!
Here are some interesting thoughts about food. I am fond of homemade toothsome food, but I don’t like when it takes a lot of time to make it. Especially now, when I have a baby. In the matter of this I have some simple breakfast/lunch ideas which I just change every time by adding some new fruits or vegetables or chocolate!
One of those ideas is Scones. Simple. No a lot of products needed. And sure a timesaver!
These days I tried to remake one of my favourite pancakes with squash but adding sweet potato instead. It tasted similar but more delicate and I like it!
These days I have absolutely no time. Holidays are coming, the baby needs more mama, my dog needs to play every day and I was trying to share this recipe for more than several weeks. Sorry about that! But finally I found the time to do that! Because this recipe is very simple but so delicious! These brownies can be a perfect sweet gift for your friends for upcoming Christmas holidays. Mix the ingredients, bake them, cut into squares and place into the little bags. I think your friends will love you so much more after this chocolate gift!
I grabbed this recipe from my friend. It is amazing! It is not the simplest crepe recipe but it is worth the time to spend to make them. These crepes are so beautiful with all those little bubbles on the surface. Just look at the photos! Thanks to buttermilk they have sour-sweet taste and are pretty nourishing. They are perfect with autumn flavoured jams or just with honey and hot tea.
I can never say “no” to chocolate. It is the best sweet thing for me ever. Every time when I’m choosing what to order in a cafe – a cheesecake or a brownie – the latter always win. The same happens in my kitchen – I like to experiment with my old favourite recipes adding chocolate or cocoa. This time I upgraded my favourite recipe of clafoutis. I made chocolate clafoutis with pear and also added a little bit of delicious Gorgonzola which made this recipe especially tasteful! Read More
Few weeks ago I made these amazing autumn plum galettes and this week I decided to make classic ones with apples! I buy apples every Saturday at the local farmers market and then decide what to make with all of them. I use apples in pies, crumbles, salads. Today it is apple galettes. I added chopped walnuts into the dough and was delighted by the result!
Fig season is one of the best seasons! I think the best way to eat them is just raw, or adding to salads or place on the top of bruschetta with goat cheese and honey. I’ve roasted my amazingly ripened figs with honey and pistachios. It’s a very simple way to get a delicious dessert or make morning porridge more appetising!
