If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! It´s Friday – which consequently means that the weekend is just around the corner. Since my diet is going so amazingly well (not) I´m thinking about celebrating with style and use the opportunity to share this delicious dessert with [...]
So since the theme of April is “All things healthy!” I thought it would be appropriate to share this ridiculously delicious pear and almond cake. See… the pears and almonds are super healthy so it´s kind of a no brainer – right?
Once a year there is a day where you can eat chocolate buns all day long. I call them buns for a lack of a better word but this day is a tradition in Iceland and I celebrate it (or try to) wherever I´m in the world. The only problem is that they are kind of tricky to make and last year… well that was a sad story.
Ok – I know it´s kind of crazy starting the week off with a tart but hey – you only live once. This recipe is simple, not too sweet and I absolutely love it. It will be a healthy week though – I promise… but a freshly baked tart – with a nice cup of coffee is something to kick the week off just right…
My and Volli have one thing in common (well, actually a few others but bear with me): we like simple food – but for very different reasons. Volli likes things to be straight forward which is kind of how he is but me… well I just lack the skill to create anything complicated in the kitchen – so the simpler the better.
Yesterday I found myself in desperate need for something sweet and delicious. It was pure greed since I already had some soup leftovers for lunch and there would be spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. So – it was definitely just greed but against my better judgment I decided to whip up some crepes. The crepes in this recipe are not the traditional American ones. Instead they are more European – thin and almost the size of a dinner plate.
I went through a stage a few years ago where I got obsessed with meringue. It all started shortly after my Hollandaise obsession reached it´s high point and my fridge was filled with egg whites that I had no idea what to do with. So I thought I´d give meringue a try.
These angels are just about the easiest thing you can make and I sometimes call them the last temptation. I don´t know why – but I like the sound of it. Chocolate is a funny thing. Most people like it but we also have very different ways of enjoying it.
Mouth watering plums covered with deep brown caramel – sprinkled with almonds.
If you want to make this dish even more perfect then serve it with Hot Fudge Sauce
Pinch off walnut-size pieces of dough and arrange evenly over berries, then scatter with almonds and sprinkle with remaining 2 tbs of sugar.
