Mini vanilla cheesecakes with a crunchy Lotus® cookies crust and caramelized hazelnuts, salted caramel and caramelized apples, de-li-cious…
I really enjoyed these mini cheesecakes, there’s a crisp crust made of crushed Lotus® cookies mixed with a bit of caramelized nuts, a creamy vanilla cheesecake, slightly crunchy apples bathing in salted caramel, and a crown of caramelized hazelnuts, it’s a delicious mix of textures and flavors.
A spicy and delicious green bean salad, with mozzarella and bacon, a hard-boiled egg, tomato, radishes, very refreshing in Summer, as well as a healthy and low calorie dish!
Whenever I make this salad, I only use fresh fine or super-fine green beans. I don’t like to use frozen because I find them too watery and they’re no longer as crisp as fresh ones.
Are you a fan of rhubarb pie like me? Rhubarb season is back!
This is a classic, delicious rhubarb pie, but I decided to make it in the shape of a rectangle for a change, with a DeBuyer mold with removable bottom (14.17 x 3.93 inches) found on amazon and, to use up my whole puff pastry, I covered it with a lattice with my lattice cutter from Norpro also found on Amazon, so easy to use with very nice results…
This is a rich and flavorful chocolate cake laced with strawberry jam, delicious!
Here I wanted to make a chocolate bread, but, you know, a whole chocolate loaf can be sort of boring sometimes. I had some strawberries in my fridge and immediately thought of making a quick jam and lace my chocolate cake with it.
Whole kumquat candied in syrup, delicious!
One of my friend’s mother gave me such a huge quantity of kumquats from her garden that I had to think of something to do with them right away. After finding my jam recipe, I decided to look for a candied kumquats recipe and found it on https://cuisinea4mains.wordpress.com/2011/03/19/kumquats-confits/.
