Biscotti With Pistachio, Almond And Sambuca – Pistachio // Mustachio

I ate (and made) many different kinds of biscotti all my life, but there is something about this one that takes biscotti to a new, higher level for my taste. I think it is the rather simplicity of it, and the freshness brought by lemon-lime-orange zest combo and of course, the equally zestful Sambuca, Italian herb liqueur. I saw a similar recipe in Italian Food Safari on SBS a few months ago, and working on it a few times, I made my own version of it.

Sticky And Spicy Gingerbread – Or More Like, Gingergasm!

Do you know Hairy Bikers? Do you watch Hairy Bikers? Do you like Hairy Bikers? I LOVE them!! They are just so lovely, hairy big boys with a beautiful bromance going on for years and they make absolutely gorgeous food on BBC! I love their TV programs – their love for food is so much more than any other famous chef I’ve seen. They absolutely LOVE eating what they cook and you can see how they almost pass out sometimes!! I recently watched their new TV show called Hairy Biker’s Comfort Food and this recipe was in the first episode. As soon as I saw it, I had to make it!!!

Vegan Monday: Crispbread With Seeds And Vintage Merlot Sea Salt – Näkkileipä

On April 24th, 2016, I went to Helsinki Coffee Festival with my friend Helena. While Helena is utterly a coffee person, I am a tea person, however I wanted to go to the festival and check what’s going on in coffee world and taste some things. In the end I just drank a very bitter espresso and ate frrrrresh churros, and I bought a brand new cookbook in Finnish: “Kahvin Kanssa”, meaning “With Coffee”. This crispbread is an adaption of one from that book.

Coconut Flan – I Am Obsessed With Flan!

I ate flan, Spanish flan to be exact, for the first time over 3 years ago in a tiny wine & tapas restaurant here in Helsinki, called Kombo Winebar & Kitchen. I went there with my friends Minni and Alli, they were going to celebrate the birthday of one of their friends and I tagged along. I didn’t eat any of the tapas as I was there already with full stomach but I ate the flan and it was a life changing experience. So tasty, so beautiful, so light it was. After that, I got obsessed with flan…

Brioche Buns With Cheese And Parsley – Smell The Butter

The smell of butter inside a warm and cosy bakery in the middle of winter.. It reminds me so much of my childhood. When I was a kid, I didn’t like having breakfast at home before the school. So my mother would buy me one “pogaca”, a kind of flaky pastry that is similar brioche and I would eat that as breakfast, accompanied by that lovely butter smell all around me. Later on when I was a teenager, during high school years, we would go to the bakery behind the school building every morning with my friends sharing the same school bus. The bus would leave us outside the building, so we would first go to the bakery and eat a pogaca fresh out of the oven and then go inside the building..

Gluten Free Thursday: Chickpea Bread With Edamame Hummus Spread

I know, I know… My blog is turning into a “50 shades of hummus” book.. But as I wrote in last week’s gluten free thursday recipe when I published “black-eyed pea hummus”, nowadays I like trying new ingredients for hummus, other than traditional chickpeas. Well, this week’s hummus is made with edamame beans, and it is spread on a loaf of delicious, yellowish chickpea bread.
