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!
Valentine's day is almost here and if you don't know what to give your bff, your bf/gf or just have around the house for that party you're gonna have Saturday night I give you Nuttela Truffles with white and red sprinkles.
Good Points about these pies : 1) They are super cute , 2) They taste super nice 3) They are rather cheap and 4) They are super easy to make! So let's get started on our Christmas Cheesy Green Peas and Tomato Pies.
And you did read the title right, I am baking Sweet Bean Pies, one of my favorite Portuguese traditional pastries. And now you would be like BEAN PIES? BEAN? REALLY? Yes, yes, white bean fucking pies! THEY'RE GREAT!! Ok, I'm getting too excited about this.
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!
I'm back and I bring breakfast with me. If you never traveled to Turkey you are missing their amazing BREAKFAST. I can easily and surely say that, for me, this is the best Turkish culinary treat.
CHOCOLATE AGAIN? YES PLEASE! Brazilian traditional party food calls for Brigadeiros! And if you don't know what those are, you are about to learn!
This time I baked tuna, red pepper and cheese mini quiches and they were SUPER DELICIOUS!
Strawberries everywhere! Isn't it awesome? Well I think it is! So this being the season to get some good strawberries at a reasonable price, this weekend I decided to put together a nice combo of Strawberry Cupcakes with Yogurt Frosting !
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.
Home sickness hits sometimes and for that I have food to make me feel all better. And if it's not home sickness I'll just find another reason to make this pie because I love it. And it gets so much extra points for making all the house smell like baked apples.
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.
So I found myself in a bit of a planning/cooking madness last week and that turned into a weekend of baking to test frosting and cupcake recipes and all that jazz. Result: 36 cupcakes on the table!
So Valentine's day came along and I guess chocolate is a must, right? Either if you are alone or you have a significant other, this day is just a good excuse to indulge on super moist fluffy cupcakes.
Winter has come and my nose decides it's the official time to be runny and disgusting! Omg super cool ! Ok I'll stop with the sarcasm. I'm sick for like a week now and it's super boring. And what's not boring you ask? Is that it gives me an excuse to cook up some soup!
