Cheese and mushroom casserole with chicken

This casserole is simple and delicious, and makes a perfect snack during a picnic (bento anyone?)—you should use it as a basic idea for a casserole, since the pasta sauce is the stable and the most important piece of the meal. It's also a very tweak-able recipe! :-)

Whole-grain bread rolls

There are not many things that can beat the whole grain bread, unless it's 8 delicious little whole grain breadrolls ;-) These are perfect for breakfast, and you can easily prepare and bake them in one evening, for e.g. Sunday breakfast! :-)

My fool-proof recipe will be a great fun, and a good addition to your baking arsenal.

Coffee cake

My first real cake, made with delicious coffee-flavored buttercream. It was really good, and simple! Because this cake doesn't require leveling, you can simply bake two layers separately, then stack them — a perfect recipe for beginners! :-)

I made my cake with normal instant coffee, but you can also use decaf coffee for same taste, but caffeine-free cake! :-)

Quick cream pie

Somehow I managed to hide mini chocolate muffins in my oven over the weekend and now I'm left with lots of chocolate cake crumbs. I decided to make a quick, and easy dessert, which doesn't look luxurious, but is really tasty, fast and easy to prepare in almost no time. Try on your own, you can use any kind of sweet baked cookies, cakes, etc., that crumbles easily.

Orange cheese-tart

I didn't plan to make this cake at all, what I did plan was apple tart with apricot jelly... Well, sometimes I just change my mind, especially while experimenting in the kitchen :-) The result is interesting, refreshing and citrusy! :-) If you don't like the strong orange aroma, you can replace them with any soft and sweet fruit: peaches, pears, and apricots should do fine!
