The Carrot Side

It's that carrot time again! Carrot and Cheesecake squares recipe is here for Easter!

The Budget Side 3 (a.k.a. Pizza Sticks)

Hey! It's the end of the month and I'm totally broke again! Trying to save money sucks, but at least I can have some party food anyway! This time I've made Pizza Sticks, or if you are in Turkey, you can call them Pizza Borek. This little invention of mine is made using very very convenient store bought everything! So it's cheap, it's easy and it's fast, just my thing!

The Christmas Side 2 (Black Forest Cupcakes)

I set my mind on making a Christmas sweet that I could serve for today's Christmas dinner party, so it had to be somewhat traditional, that I could make ahead of time, that was easy, fast and not so expensive. Honestly I guess I spent more time thinking about how to make it fast than actually doing it, so success. Black Forest Cupcakes are the shit!

The Experimental Side (or the Brazilian Side part 2)

So this week I wanted to share with you an experiment I did last Sunday while trying to figure out what I wanted to cook as much as I wanted to eat. I didn't want sweets but also I didn't want a massive dish that I wouldn't be able to eat because I can't seem to be able to cook for less than 4 people that are extremely hungry. I wanted something salty that I could snack on, and that would last for around 3 days without going bad. So I remembered Brazilian Cheese Bread...

The Summer Side

So what can I cook that works as a desert/snack/cake, but it's nice and cold? Cheesecake! Yeah! So I did it, and I made it a banana cheesecake with chocolate cookie base, because banana and chocolate. No baking needed (no more heat in the kitchen) and it's so easy!

The Low Budget Side (or The Totally Broke Side 2)

End of the month cooking means (at least for me ok?) stretching those last cents until a beautiful new paycheck gets to my bank account. And I don't wanna eat pasta all the time,ok? Yes you can have too much pasta, it's possible. In come Express Pizzas! No it's not take away!

The Rabbit Side

So there Easter goes and with it a full weekend full of delicious things to eat. For me it was no different, so I baked a Crunchy Chocolate Carrot Easter Cake.I made the cake version of this awesome moist Portuguese recipe for carrot cupcakes and I added to eat a bitter chocolate cookie frosting. Omg … Continue reading The Rabbit Side

The Totally Broke Side

End of the month right? Guess most of us are totally broke around this time, and I'm not an exception, definitely. So when it comes to cooking it's kinda awesome if you can bake something using mostly items you already have around the house and spare some bucks. So I managed to bake Banana Cupcakes with Devil's food frosting.

The Cookie Monster Side

So I have been having a bit of a cookie monster phase, in that, I can't stop eating these Chocolate Nutella Cookies I made! They are crunchy , chocolaty and filled with Nutella, it just kinda makes it impossible for me to just leave them there sitting on the table. It has been also quite hard to edit these pictures without eating them at the same time.

The lazy side

Everyone has those days that you want to eat cozy home made food but you really don't want to be chopping and stirring for an hour. So this is what I do : Creamy Mushroom Pasta. I must say it's not the healthiest recipe of all time, but when you have your lazy mode on, who cares?

The Winter Side

So the cold has set in and that makes it ok to drink more wine and eat more cheese. Sorry that's the truth. For this same reason I ended up cooking this cheese appetizer twice this past week. Yes I have a thing with calories too, deal with it. It's the best thing ever, really. You can make it in around 30 minutes, no hassle and really not that much dirty dishes. You can pick on it while sitting in your couch with your friends and be warm and happy. Goes well with red wine, off course.

Cheesy Treats

It was one of those days that I really wanted some salty and tasty guilty pleasure style of a treat and I had nothing on the fridge, as usual. I also had people coming over, didn't want to spend a butt load of money or had that much time to cook for that matter. So I came up with this recipe.
