I would have loved to be writing right now how much I’ve been wining and dining but I am not that good at it for the past few years, I mean the wining part. That’s because my stomach is extremely fragile and has had many problems. So I’m very happy to find an alternative way to consume wine: baking a cake with it!
Autumn is full on with cool weather, falling yellow leaves, a bit of rain and a bit of sunny days altogether and days getting shorter. And so I continue flirting with pumpkin and in this post, our relationship is all about being a nice and delicious pie with a friend a bit unusual to tag along in pies: phyllo!
I was in desperate need of some comfort food today. I was craving for carbs. I woke up in a bit of a down mood because of a dream last night. So tell me, what is better than pasta when you are craving for carbs?
I usually don’t like posting same kind of recipes one after another. And I just posted another soup recipe on Monday. But this soup is too good not to share immediately. Besides, the other recipe I was planning to post turned out to be not so good yet, so here we are.
Last Sunday I needed 1 stalk of celery for a sauce. So I bought a package of celery because you cannot buy just one stalk and ended up having lots of celery in my hands. What did I do? I made lots of soup with each and every celery stalk. This chunky and herby one is one of them.
I have been planning to work on this recipe for I don’t know how long. I bought ricotta and cream cheese a few times in the past few months to work on it but I ended up using the ricotta for other recipes and ate the cream cheese! Finally, I did it!
It’s September! Which means, officially it’s autumn. Yet judging by the weather, it’s unofficially still summer! I mean really, it’s quite warm today in Helsinki. But most members of pumpkin family are out in the markets so to give a start to autumn, here is a delicious pumpkin soup.
Well ok this salad is not exactly tabbouleh, it is just inspired by it to a great extent. And it is delicious!
I am chewing a stomach tablet right now helping with pain because I ate this dip. I know that I shouldn’t have eaten something with hot peppers. But I had to taste it of course and then I couldn’t stop having more than just a bit to taste because it was so good! Ahh, sacrificing my stomach hasn’t been such a pleasure for a while…
I think, out of all kinds of gluten free flour, corn flour is my favourite. It has the colour, it has the taste and it makes everything richer. Add some extra flavour like leek and carrot in this recipe, and you almost have one full and very satisfying meal in one slice!
