Carrot Purée With Caraway Seeds And Yogurt – Dipping Sauce For Bugs Bunny

I sometimes feel like Bugs Bunny – I cannot get enough of carrots. Then, for a while I completely forget about carrots, after that I remember again.. I generally like to make a simple salad with raw carrots and tomatoes: I just grate carrots, chop tomatoes and bring them together with a bit of salt, olive oil and lemon juice. This recipe though, is a whole new thing for me.

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.

Hot Hummus With Pine Nuts And Butter – This Will Change The Whole Hummus Game!

I must admit that I was slightly suspicious about the idea of “hot hummus” when I first saw a recipe in the mezze cookbook I bought in Istanbul last summer. I am not a big fan of hummus anyway, but when it’s hot, I thought it might feel too heavy. Oh boy, was I wrong.. Not only it is light, but also it is so delicious that I could probably eat the whole pot when I first made 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!!!
