I decided to start this week with a simple enough recipe. I mean, mashed potatoes, how hard can it be? In this recipe, you just add a few extra ingredients to potatoes and then you’re good to go. But oh, that garlic flavour…. yum.
As the title indicates, I am not sure if there is a real name for these cuties. We always called them “cirikta”. But some call a similar recipe “cilikta”. Some call it “pisi” but I’m pretty sure it’s not pisi because pisi is rather yeasted dough. I just like calling them cute little monsters because of the shape of fried dough!
Biscotti. Oh how I love it. I made and published in the blog different kinds of biscottis before. They all had eggs. This one is an eggless vegan one!
First things first: happy new year! I chose this delicious recipe as the first one in 2020 because as author Dean Koontz said, “where there is cake, there is hope”.
Well, it’s happening. Today. Right now. I’m 40. Today is my birthday. A new decade starts for me. I was extremely stressed and anxious when I was turning 30. This time, I kind of don’t care.
I don’t like traditional fruit cakes eaten generally in Christmas time. I got to know these cakes when I moved to Helsinki, but I never became fond of them. This one, though, is a delicious version as it doesn’t have too many different fruits and also, almonds adds a nice texture. Oh and by the way, there is no plum in it.
I like rice pilaf a lot. And I like making different types of it, mixing with a variety of ingredients, such as different kinds of spices and lentils like this recipe.
These buttery cookies have my favourite nut and my favourite dried fruit!
Whenever I make something with pecans, I remember how expensive they are – at least in Finland that is. I mean, I find nuts generally quite expensive here, but pecans really exceed in that. But well, they are delicious and they are used in a moderate amount in this recipe so it’ll be fine.
I love a good old wholesome salad as a main dish. I mostly make a salad with grains if I am to eat it alone, but this salad is extremely filling and delicious by itself too. And it’s very easy to make!
