Bittersweet chocolate tart

Just a decadent chocolate heaven! I tried to make it less fatty, hence the filling contains yogurt and milk instead of butter and cream. It’s heavy stuff anyway. To be tasted very slowly in small doses:) To decorate the tart, you can cut cookies out of the left over pastry. Bake them on a higher…

Spicy chocolate rye muffins with candied orange peel

This recipe makes chocolatey cardamom mini-cakes with candied orange bits and hot chili aftertaste. I used rye flour as it’s considered healthier than wheat. Besides it almost doesn’t affect the taste and has good binding qualities. Chocolate muffins remain my top idea for unexpected and urgent daily happenings. A bunch of these were made last week. One of…

Persimmon cranberry baked omelet

Sunday fruit omelet to brighten up the day! It’s raining the whole day. And it feels like spring. Or autumn. But I have in sights ❤ Scottish Black Bun for Christmas!:D At the moment everything that sounds like or reminds me anything Scottish, makes me extremely excited and hyper happy:D The reason is simple – The…

Trinidad coconut sweet loaf (cake)

Here is an adapted recipe of delicious Carribean coconut bread which is called by the name of the island of Trinidad. I’ve made minor changes to the recipe that didn’t affect the outcome (had to add yogurt as the batter was too dry. That could be milk too, but I had only yogurt). It came out fragrant, soft inside and…

Beyond dreams

The hearts of certain music lovers and addicts all over the world were astounded, bewildered and overwhelmed this morning. After this line-up was exposed. I was stunned too. Going through the storm of feelings, about losing my marbles:D Still wiping off the tears with a ticket purchase. Hoping everything will come true. This music for years and…

Carrot pumpkin tahini loaf (vegan)

The recipe of an incredibly fragrant vegan pumpkin and carrot bread based on tahini paste, or simply – ground hulled sesame seeds. To make it just grind raw or toasted sesame seeds in a food processor with a little oil or water until smooth (I add usually water because sesame paste is already fat enough….

Almond cookies with chocolate topping

These absolutely wonderful almond cookies were made according to this Chef Kreso’s recipe. I modified the original though, by replacing some ingredients, and making only one simple type of topping instead of two. I must say these were the most challenging cookies for me ever!:) As I always tend to minimize the cooking time and…

Red Velvet Cake

I’ve never tried this cake before. Because of the suspicious red color. I love colors but not artificial ones in food. The striking red was halting me from giving it a try, and at the same time it was fascinating and enticing. Visually this is definitely one of the most stunning cakes. And I made it…

Pumpkin pie

Sweet November is a pumpkin November:) Once in a lifetime I’ve made a pumpkin pie according to a classic recipe (“Classic” is a relative term, here it is more about “plain”). Usually I mix pumpkin filling with lots of white cheese, honey and fresh grated ginger. That’s my all-the-time favorite recipe, introduced by Carrie, a funny…

Carrot vanilla cottage cheese pie

Breakfast time is calling for protein-rich and carroty bake like this! Actually, one can decide whether it will be a dessert or just an ordinary breakfast meal:) This incredibly fragrant goodie gets firm=easily portable after cooling. But I think it tastes best when freshly baked:) Makes 4 servings Takes 50 minutes (15 preparation, 30 baking, 5…

Oat sesame date cookies (vegan, sugar-free, paleo)

An easy recipe of oat cookies, which in case of using quick or instant oats even don’t require baking. So you can combine all the ingredients adding any tasty bits you like, and simply leave formed balls or patties to chill in the fridge. The shelf life will be diminished though, from a couple of weeks for…
