chocolate glazed yeast donuts (doughnuts)

Delicious Chocolate Glazed Yeast Donuts

Why do donuts have holes in the center? As a real food geek, I’m always curious to find out little-known facts about food. Like, who the hell is the first person in history who came up with the idea of throwing a piece of leavened sweet dough in the hot oil. Although food history rarely […]

No-Churn Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream

This title is not a click-byte. It really isn’t. It was about time for me to prepare one easy and fast recipe for the blog. And, to be honest with you, the recipe for this homemade bourbon vanilla ice cream wasn’t something that I planned to share with you in the first place because this […]

green wild garlic soda bread

Wild Garlic Irish Soda Bread

I can’t exactly remember when was the first time I baked my first soda bread. All I know is that along with Lahey’s no-knead bread, it was one of the very first bread I learned to bake. I’m always happy to come back to this type of no yeast bread when I don’t feel like […]

Beetroot Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sauce

Beetroot gnocchi – soft, silky, dark red pillows briefly sauteed in fragrant brown butter, with fresh lemon juice and crispy broccoli – what’s not to love here? For me, this meal is complete only when I grate some good Parmigiano Reggiano and add some freshly ground pepper. Gnocchi is one of the least attractive side […]

This Herbed Potato Salad with Capers and Onions is one of my favorite ways of preparing potatoes. While still warm, baby potatoes are tossed with a rich salad dressing made from fresh herbs, mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. This way, potatoes perfectly absorb all flavors from the dressing and we’re getting a great […]

Apple Crumble With Cardamom Butter Sauce

Lately, I’m totally into simple, rustic desserts, and apple crumble fits perfectly to that category: simple, rustic fruit dessert that is baked in the oven. Besides apples, crumble filling usually consists of peaches, berries, apricots, plums, pears and if you’re lucky, rhubarb. This apple crumble was the first thing I baked just after the earthquake […]
