Do you remember these delightful ideas for folding puff pastry? This pastry dough is a miracle and the biggest accomplishment of French cooks. It's buttery in taste and fluffy, delicate and perfect for almost any baked recipe that is destined to impress. While this simple puff pastry is not as good as the original French recipe, it skips all that butter drama and difficulty, which will be a plus for less advanced cooks! Lightly knead the dough, let it rest in the refrigerator for some time and roll in one session.
Usually waffles are served crispy, but from time to time I like to make them soft and spongy — perfect base for a plum jam! :-) This recipe makes 4 delicious, spongy waffles that you can prepare in no-time!
Ramen is a delightful soup served piping hot with wheat noodle and lots of vegetables — a perfect dish that you can prepare quickly for a healthy autumn dinner or a light lunch. You can customise it almost indefinitely with ingredients you like: eggs, meat, vegetables and rice cakes. I will show you how to prepare a simple, but very tasty ramen based on bonito fish stock (bonito dashi) and eggs.
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.
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!
