Do you remember the butterscotch recipe? It ended up being the icing on the cheesecake I made recently. It's a terrific, although a bit heavy, recipe that will be a perfect alternative for a birthday cake or any other celebratory cake — it's very dense, and will easily yield 12 or more portions and leftover cookies! :-)
I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.
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!
This recipe is not for the faint-hearted — it requires some frying skills, but makes a really tasty, delicious meal with a massive wow-factor without any extra hassle :-) I actually got the idea for this, when my local grocery store offered special 1kg packages of Vitelotte, a.k.a. purple potatoes. I wanted to make something tasty, but also colourful and festive, thus this crazy, colourful and festive meal was born! ---|
On good thing about these potatoes is, they seem to lower blood pressure and have inflammatory components, which might be a good thing for a winter meal :-)
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!
