Five Minutes Trifles Dessert

Five Minutes Trifles Dessert

A trifle is a wonderfully indulgent dessert. Sweet, creamy, with the added textures of fruit, sponge or lady fingers, it is an ideal finish to a meal. And if you like a little extra zing in your dessert, trifles will happily accommodate a dash of  sherry or your favorite liqueur. The trifles are great for serving a light dessert after a copious meal, especially during the holidays. Christmas is a perfect one for enjoying this fabulous dessert, but Thanksgiving is great…

Authentic Traditional Turkish Coffee

Authentic Traditional Turkish Coffee

This authentic traditional Turkish coffee recipe is my favorite one when it comes to drinking coffee. Back in Romania, we used to drink Turkish coffee every single day. It was not a treat, it was a way of living. The exceptional taste, body, aroma, and preparation makes Turkish coffee far superior to any other coffee out there. You might want to challenge me on this one, but unless you tried it and you did not like it, you should just trust me.…

Quinoa Lentils Walnuts Salad3

Quinoa Lentils Walnuts Salad

I love the already cooked quinoa and lentils from Trader Joe's and I always have a package of each in the fridge/freezer for emergencies. They are a lifesaver when time is short and you have to put dinner on the table. I also like cooking almost everything from scratch and that includes lentils and other beans, but tonight, I decided to use the already cooked ones and make a quick salad. I added walnuts to the mixture, then some crunchy…

Lentil Feta Walnut Salad1

Lentil Feta Walnut Salad

Lentils are some of my favorite legumes in the winter. I live in a cold climate and have a hard time eating cucumber and tomato salads unless is July, so beans, lentils and chickpeas combined with other vegetables make a great addition to our meals in the winter. As you probably know already, lentils are nutritious and balanced providing proteins, fibers, vitamins and minerals. This humble legume lowers cholesterol, helps with digestion, stabilizes blood sugar and overall it is a…

Cinnamon Tomato Chicken Stew2

Cinnamon Tomato Chicken Stew

This cinnamon tomato chicken stew is a dish I always loved. It comes from Greece and it is also known as Kota Kapama. The hidden ingredient in the tasty sauce is cinnamon and it makes chicken taste like a party. Whether you're making this recipe with beef, chicken, pork, or lamb, a touch of cinnamon intensifies the savory aroma and adds a subtle richness to the meat. It won't taste like cinnamon, but it will add a layer of flavor…

Linseed Cookies

Linseed Cinnamon Cookies

If you never tried a linseed cookie before, you are here for a treat. Linseed or flaxseed cookies are something I never tasted before. Recently, I got this beautiful book, written by Paulina Abascal, a popular pastry chef from Mexico. The recipes in this book are easy to make and the pictures are beautiful and inspiring. Here is where I found the recipe and wanted to try it really bad. Linseeds (or flax seeds) are very high in Omega 3, protein…

Homemade Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections

Homemade Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections

Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections are a popular item in Europe. You can find them in stores around the United States also, but they are not as popular as overseas. The original confections are spherical wafers filled with a white milk cream and white blanched almonds. They are tossed in coconut flakes and are delicious.   My recipe version of these confections is a very easy one that requires only three ingredients. Coconut flakes, medium shredded, a can of condensed milk and roasted almonds. How to make…
