I must say that as soon as I think about this dip, I feel its lovely sour taste in my mouth. It’s quite mouth watering actually.
When you think of Greek (or Mediterranean) salad, what kind of ingredients come to your mind? I guess mostly olives, tomatoes, feta.. maybe some herbs… onions? Yes, so imagine these muffins like a salad bundled up in a muffin form!
The smell of basil has to be one of the best things in the world. It brings a fresh, soft taste to anything it is added to. It even goes well in a sweet cake as I used in one of my recipes a few weeks ago (blogpost here). This focaccia bread is full of fresh basil and olive oil – there’s a lot of both, but it’s not overwhelming.
I love corn bread. I think one of the reasons is that it connects me to my Black Sea roots – we love eating flat corn bread made on pan and on stove, together with fried or poached European anchovy. It is a very delicious type of corn bread indeed. This one in this recipe is yet another delicious corn bread, and this time we have a lot more ingredients in it than just corn flour.
My previous apartment was a quite big one unlike my tiny (but big in Helsinki standards) studio apartment. At some point, my roommate was my classmate Anja. We threw quite many big parties at our apartment when we lived together. And we also went to many picnics together. She would often bake this one bread roll with herbs for these occasions and we all loved it. This savoury cake is the cakey version of this bread – similar at least, with a few changes from me.
A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated the birthday of one of my close friends here, Zeynep, together with many other friends and family. I made the sweets for this gathering, while Zeynep’s parents-in-law prepared the salty snacks. It was this event where I got to taste this incredibly delicious bread!! I fell in love with it immediately, and I asked David and Tiina for its name and recipe. And so here comes one of the most delicious bread recipes from Finnish cuisine!
Well, actually this sandwich is great for breakfast too, especially big weekend breakfast or brunches if you like them. Family and friends around the table. During weekday everyone has their own schedule and breakfasts are rarely a common occasion, and even if it is, then it is just functional, so no long chats before leaving for school or work. But when you have time on the weekend, you can make a big, rich breakfast table and one of the things you serve can be this!
Everyone loves dips & spreads! Don’t you? I love adding new spreads to my portfolio. Well, I also grow tired of serving hummus to my customers in my eating events or catering gigs, that’s why I want new recipes. These two recipes will be excellent in the future events and gatherings!
So, this pancake is baked. However, it is extremely easy so no baking related excuse can be accepted, anyone can do it.
I love garlic. Put it in any savoury dish and I will eat happily. Life would be so dull without garlic… But… Even garlic has its even better moments and roasting is one of those!
