I made this yesterday for dinner. Our friends loved it so much they asked for the recipe :-)

I can't think of a better combination, pork wrapped in pork :-) Ohhh yeahhh. Can you imagine that? Just perfect and so easy to make. I prepared everything a few hours before my guests arrived and kept it in the fridge so I can spend more time with them. It was a hit.

I am so happy I found this recipe, I will make it again and again and again. Love it.

Garlic buns - from Torview

One of the blogs I follow is Torview I love to read the recipes and I made a few already. The banana cookies are just awesome.

I love to try something new and I am desperate to try these garlic buns. Just look at that photo. Can you imagine the smell of freshly baked garlic buns in your kitchen? Ohhhh I can't wait to eat one.
Next week I have some friends coming over and I will surprise them :-)

Here is the recipe, just click on the link and start baking: Torview: Garlic buns


These are EXCELLENT!!! And so easy to make. I used parsley because I had a ton of parsley at home. I was so proud when these came out so good! My friends went wild when they tried these parsley garlic buns.
Will definitely make again as they are pretty simple & quick to put together and I'm no longer intimidated by making these from scratch. I put my Kitchen Aid stand mixer to work, let the dough rise, made the garlic spread, roll the dough and bake. Sounds pretty easy. Well, it is. The best part is when they are done. You feel like a real baker.... pretty good feeling :-)

Here are some pictures. What do you think?

Cherry Almond Biscotti - Carrie's Experimental Kitchen

A nice recipe from Carrie's Experimental Kitchen.
I saw this and I knew I will make them. You can't go wrong with these ingredients.
Biscotti is the perfect crunchy companion to your cup of coffee.

Click on the link to see the recipe: Carrie's Experimental Kitchen: Cherry Almond Biscotti: This past Saturday, I had to make some items for a bake sale and wanted to try out a new variation of biscotti. That, and I was cleaning out...


Here is what I baked today. My first biscotti :-)

Don't you think cherry and almond is the perfect combination? I've never made biscotti before, I know it takes a while and you bake it twice. Now I found the perfect one. I love dried cherry and almonds, I can't wait to try them.
The kitchen smelled incredible: hmmmm almonds, hmmmm. I had to hide a few for tomorrow morning. 
How awesome is that to wake up and have a cup of espresso and biscotti? 
I didn't change anything, I followed the recipe and this is the result.
Next time I will make a double batch.
Here are some photos for you guys.

And now, after I took these photos it's time to eat.
Biscotti time :-)

Spicy chickpea soup - from Una Semplice Passione

Have you ever had chickpea soup? I am crazy about it. I had chickpea soup only in restaurants, I never tried to make it at home.
I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs Una Semplice Passione. So, I read the recipe and I decided to give it a try. I am sure this will be easy to make and delicious. I can't wait to eat it.

Click here to see the recipe:


Here is a photo with the soup I made today. I am sooooo happy. It looks soooo good and it taste better than it looks. Can you imagine that? :-)

The only change I made was to add 3 carrots, just for a touch of color and a little lemon juice. I wanted lemon juice because this is how I ate it long time ago in a greek restaurant. This is a delicious soup and I will make it again and again and again. This is a keeper.

Look at this cake. Gorgeous. The decoration, the candles, the colors, the ribbon, everything is o elegant, so beautiful. I had to save this. This is so beautiful, I want a slice right now. hmmmmm

Click on the link to see the recipe: Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes: Sweet...Raspberries and Cream Charlotte from Sarab...: Two of my blog friends and I received the same cookbook for Christmas. We decided to select a recipe and post it for Valentine's weekend. ...


OK. I did it. Here is my raspberry charlotte :-) Loooove it

The truth is that I didn't mean to change the recipe but I didn't have enough raspberries so I decided to make one layer of raspberry cream and top it with whipped cream.
I don't know what I was thinking when I bought the ingredients. When I got home I realised I don't have enough raspberries but I didn't go back to the store.

My boyfriend said this is to die for. I was so happy :-)
This is a simple recipe, a no bake cake. What can be easier than that?

So, if you want to make a very fancy and easy dessert try this one. Awesome. You can't stop eating  :-)
