Valentine’s day dessert: pavlova with chocolate cream

Difficulty: 1/5

This dessert is easy and delicious, perfect for Valentine’s or Galentine’s day. A pavlova is a cooked meringue with cream and fruit. In this case I made a chocolate cream to make it more interesting. You can make the meringues ahead of time and keep them at room temperature in a sealed container so they don’t go soggy. You can leave the cream mixed with all the ingredients in the fridge so it’s nice and cold when you use it, and whip it right before serving.

Chunky nacho salsa

Difficulty 1/5

To eat nachos, it’s a must to have a yummy sauce, and I love the tomato type. I like it chunky, with important pieces of each ingredient to really get their whole flavour. The trick to get max flavour out of it is to leave the mix overnight in the fridge after you have cooked it so the flavours really develop, achieving an A.MA.ZING result.  Continue reading “Chunky nacho salsa”

Cookies and ice-cream sandwich

Difficulty 1/5

In summer or winter, these chocolate chip cookies filled with vanilla ice-cream are my doom. The cookie recipe is really impressive on its own (I made them for some friends and let’s say it didn’t even last 2 hours in the gift bag), and it works perfectly with the ice-cream because they are soft and melt in your mouth; so when you bite the sandwich the ice-cream doesn’t go everywhere. Try it at home 🙂 Continue reading “Cookies and ice-cream sandwich”
