Yogurt drink

Drinking yogurt is a terrific drink for autumn — it tastes fresh, contains probiotic bacteria and makes a great dessert or a quick snack, not only during autumn. But during this time of the year it is especially important to keep the natural defense high against viruses and bacteria, and yoghurt is a superb ally in that! Did I mention it tastes great? ;-)

This recipe came to life when I was left with no fresh milk after a short travel — I had only one mini-bottle of a drinkable probiotic yogurt and some condensed milk for coffee (sic!). But against all odds, it worked out!

Plain muffins

Nothing says "hello autumn" like a batch of fresh muffins or cupcakes! :-) With this simple recipe, you gonna whip them up in no time, and they will be a perfect base for more fancy muffins with fruit (I love muffins with dried plum bits), chocolate chip muffins, caramel-stuffed ones or double-or-triple-chocolate ;-) Or savory ones: paprika, tomato, herbs, sunflower seeds, etc. It all starts with this recipe.

Simple cookies

Day are shorter now, and the weather is colder as the autumn and winter approach, so it's a good idea to brighten your day with some crispy cookies!

This recipe is really easy and cutting out the cookies is much fun. And of course, then you're left with enormous amount of hot, aromatic cookies that you can share with friends and your close ones.

They are tasty while still hot, but will get better if you leave them on the counter for a day or two, because they will absorb some of the humidity, making them really delicate and delicious!

Crispy apple tart

This French inspired recipe is a wonderful start into an autumn cooking season — sweet, tasty, crispy and soft at the same time. The most important part of this cake make apples, and they are the star. Choose the juicy, soft kind that feels grainy and rubs of when rubbing with fingers, they are usually sold in huge bundles on the cheap.
