Lemon and spelt cake

My Italian vacation will end up shortly, I can count the days till I go home on one hand, but, despite this, a thousand things have to be done and, if it is possible, I have even more friends to meet with. Despite the time is breathing down my neck, when the girls from Instamamme asked me to contribute with a post on the occasion of their community’s 3rd birthday, I said yes right away. Read more

Purple cauliflower and pear flan with roquefort sauce

sformato di cavolo viola e pere

french version english version italian version (SCROLL DOWN)

I’m very proud of this cauliflower and pear flan, to be honest. Born by chance, aimed to “save” some pears bought more for their beautiful color rather than their taste (and also to prevent myself from finishing all the roquefort with a baguette), this cauliflower flan was a really nice surprise that came out of my oven, both for its flavor and for its beautiful color.

Clementine and ginger aperitivo

aperitivo con scritta

It’s quite strange publishing a drink on my blog, but I made this ginger and clementine aperitivo for a project that unfortunately never came into being. It was too good to be abandoned between all the pictures stored in my computer. Maybe it will be the first cocktail of a long series, who knows?!? This ginger and clementine aperitivo is easy to make, perfect to be prepared during these festive days. If there are children around, you can replace the prosecco with soda or sparkling water. Cheers and Happy New Year!

Apéritif au gingembre et aux clémentines

ginger and clementine cocktail

C’est un peu étrange de publier une boisson sur mon blog, disons une nouveauté ; mais pour un projet qui n’a jamais abouti, j’avais réalisé ce cocktail qui était trop bon pour être oublié parmi toutes les photos compressées dans mon ordinateur. Parfait pour être préparé pendant ces jours de fête, l’apéritif au gingembre et aux clémentines se réalise en vitesse avec du prosecco, et s’il y a des enfants vous pouvez remplacer le prosecco avec du soda ou de l’eau pétillante
