Duminica e soare

Ii multumesc Dianei de la Disturbingly Delicious pentru invitatia de a fi alaturi de voi la pranzul de duminica. Duminica este ziua cea mai frumoasa pentru sufletul nostru. Duminica e soare. Stat in pat pana tarziu, lenevit in pijamale si cafea si ceai la pranz..caci dejunul ajunge sa fie un brunch intarziat cu bunatati speciale de duminica. Daca ajung cumva pe afara, ma intorc sigur cu un buchet mare de flori si cu zambete. Totul e sa fie soare. Singurii norisori pe care ii vreau duminica sunt niste bezele albe si pufoase care sa imprastie firimituri dulci atunci cand musc din …

Crunchy delicious breakfast- homemade chocolate granola

Crunch, crunch, slurp, crunch, yum!  This is what you hear when we are having chocolate granola for breakfast. It’s an easy and delicious breakfast to enjoy. Not so sure it’s so healthy with the added chocolate but if you’re a dark chocolate fan like I am and keep the added sugar to a minimum it shouldn’t be that bad. And the added nuts and seeds most surely increase the health factor. And after all, you deserve a splurge once in a while! All you need is a bowl of milk or yogurt and you’re good to go! Or get yourself …

Rosemary bean soup and thoughts for autumn days

The summer days are gone and they took with them all the sun, all the warmth and almost all the life that used to stir the world outside. Now, nothing’s moving. Only a yellowed leaf  makes courage to swing from the branch and fall in agony on the ground. The November rain left behind silence and cleanness. A surreal atmosphere covers the earth. The light  sparkles through the lead sky, the trees are quiet and the people seam to hide inside their homes. Inside, the cat has hidden the head the pillow and it’s sleeping snoring lightly.  A ball of stripped …

Delicious morning with raspberry scones

I woke up with my toughts embraced with warmth and good, with the laziness and playfulness of a free day during a working week. And the sun was trying to send his rays through the curtains and that thought wouldn’t let me go. I had to bake something. To be warm, and to be delicious and smell of  good and dear. Something that would go well smeared with butter and good strawberry jam, something that would stick to your fingers which you would then clean up smiling with the mouth to your ears, something that would say home and joy. …

The times are changing

” 16 years” taught me something. The times are changing and this isn’t necessarily always something bad. It’s just the law of being. It’s life. And wow, how good it is to realize that! And what a relief! There’s nothing bad that kids listen to music we don’t understand, that they laughat other jokes, that they dance away the night we sleep embraced but still enjoying lovely afternoons together. Do you realize how our parents couldn’t understand us either? And maybe how hard it was for them to accept everything we are trying to understand now? Some probably are even still trying …

About life and chamomile tea

It’s early in the morning, in the beginning of august. 6 am and the only sound hearing is the cheery chirp of birds. I’m up early, as I don’t usually wake up at this hour. Going into the kitchen I smell fresh basil and it seems so perfectly matching with the breezy pale of wind coming through the window. Oh, and we were so waiting for this times to come so that the heat would cool down. I’m having one of these moments of  peace when all the house is asleep and in its silence I can hear C ‘s breathing, the …

Thoughts of ending summer

This year the summer came ahead of its time and didn’t leave us with much time to acknowledge its arrival. But I loved it just as much as every other time. I welcomed the sun in my soul and I let it heat me deep inside. I kept some heat to last me through the winter so I can always return to my summer. Every summer has a story and, this year, one of love and sweet life was written. I welcomed the days with happiness and enjoyed them with the sweet juicy fruits of summer. Blueberry pancakes are a …

Happy Birthday! an year after and angel food cake

An year ago, almost today, when this blog didn’t existed, with this cake I’ve wished him “Happy Birthday! ” 30 times, colorfully, beautifully and sincerely. And delicious! As there is no other cake that could spell love better than angel food cake as every bite is a fluffy piece of a sweet heavenly cloud. I’m preparing to say “Happy birthday!” again in a few days. I’ll add another wish to the last 30 and I will tell it to him with more love than any cake could ever express fully.

The taste of spring in a cake – Forest fruit tiramisu

Every bite of forest fruit tiramisu brings the feeling of a frizzy chill rain on a spring day when the wind plays through the branches of the blooming trees and shakes of their flowers and their perfume uplifts you and energizes you. You feel like dancing in the rain and enjoying every drop. This delicate cake is a combination of tastes and sensations, moist ladyfingers covered in a light mascarpone cream accompanied by bursting sour-sweet fruit aromas in every bite and a refreshing feel after eating indulging into it. The greatest thing is that tiramisu is the perfect cake for …
