ASPARAGUS & SMOKED TROUT QUICHE

 

Hello guys! I hope that all of you are doing well and enjoying the Holiday Season.

I love this time of the year the most. It’s a great opportunity to reflect back on the year, count things to be grateful for and say thank you to special people who made a difference in your life. Most of my gifts I made myself with the help of my husband and few of them were purchased (lightsaber sword hehe-thank you to the new Star Wars). Do you prefer to make or buy gifts? If you went DIY, please share with me your ideas. I am always on look out for something new 🙂 Thank you in advance.

Home made corn tortillas and crispy chips

Hi guys, I hope you had a great week.

Today, I’m sharing this quick recipe for home-made tortillas that you can use for tacos and to make crispy tortilla chips. You can always go ahead and buy ready to go tortillas and make chips out of it, but then it wouldn’t be home-made, right? I assure you, it’s really very simple. Since corn is gluten-free, there’s no resting of the dough required and it’s impossible to overwork the dough (which makes it a fun activity to involve your kids in 🙂 ). Fresh corn tortillas are chewy, tender, and make much better tacos than store-bought tortillas.  Continue reading “Home made corn tortillas and crispy chips”

Swedish cake Prinsesstårta

Thanksgiving weekend is finally here 🙂 well, almost amyway. It means fun get together with family and friends.. and mounds of yammy food 🙂 I was experimenting with Swedish princess cake that I first saw on great british bake off. I really wanted to make it perfect for the holidays. But, alas, yet have to learn how to make it. First of, french sponge genoise is extremely difficult to make I find. As soon as you try to mix in batter in, the whole mixture just colapses and looses it’s volume. After two fails, I made it happen. Also, instead of corn starch I used corn flour first time. The recipe was calling for corn flour and even though I had bells ringing in my mind, I assumed I should trust Mary Berry. After all that, on my third time it came out just great 🙂
The cake is super moist and just enough sweetness in it, with layers of raspberry jam, vanilla custard and fresh whipped cream. Yam.
I hope you guys have a great weekend. Stay warm 🙂

Brioche bread

Hi guys..How are you?

This week is very special for me, not only because I celebrated my 29th birthday but also, I have my 3 years anniversary with my sweet husband today :-). I can’t believe how time just flies by..but I actually enjoy getting older. I love understanding and appreciation for the life that comes with years, I love how I am learning to “not letting the behaviour of others to destroy my inner peace” as Dalai Lama teaches us, how to accept uncertainty and challenges, and still see positive in things. Because how else  would we learn/evolve if we were not challenged, right? Ok, so back to the recipe:-)..

This recipe is for basic brioche bread in stand mixer. From here, you can go ahead and add all sorts of things: orange zest, shaved chocolate, raisins, goat cheese and chive..whatever you like.
