Panko Avocado with Homemade Honey Mustard

Avocado is one of my favourite ingredients. Not only is it soft and creamy, but it also has an incredible flavour that lets itself be combined with others. In this case, I breaded them with panko (a super crunchy japanese breadcrumb) and cooked them in the oven. You can also fry them ;). As a dip I made a homemade honey mustard (takes literally 2min) and you can use it not only as a dip but also as a dressing, for sandwiches and wraps.

Red Velvet Brownies

Difficulty 1/5

Red velvet is one of my favourite flavours. It has a bit of cocoa powder and vinegar that really gives it a special touch. The trend with this flavours started with cakes with cream cheese buttercream layers, and then it strongly went over to cupcakes. Nowadays you can find this flavour in pancakes, loaves and even waffles. I loved the idea of making brownies with it and also give it a special topping of cream cheese because the combination is really explosive 🙂 Continue reading Red Velvet Brownies

3 cheese risotto with crispy leeks

Difficulty: 2/5

Risotto is my favourite comfort food. If you’ve never cooked risotto before, then this is the perfect recipe to start with. I used Mozzarella, Gruyère and Parmesan cheese; which really are my favourite cooking cheeses. If you like blue cheese or other strong cheeses, I recommend that you crumble them on top instead of adding them into the risotto as it can be a bit overwhelming. On top of this risotto I put crispy leeks, which are not only really easy to make, but they are also really tasty. I like to put it on my salads and fish also.

Salmon with olives, capers and cherry tomatoes

Difficulty 1/5

I love this recipe because the acidity from the white wine with the olives, capers and cherry tomatoes does wonders to a piece of perfectly pan-fried salmon. You can even use this with other fish you have at hand and it would still be great. On the side, I did some baked potatoes which are super easy and you can use with other dishes you like.

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.

Fresh pasta

Difficulty 3/5

To make fresh pasta is spectacular. To be honest it’s not difficult; you just have to be mindful to the details and tips that I put on this post and on the video. This recipe is perfect to start making your own past if you’ve never done this before or if you want something neutral for a nice sauce, or even for lasagna. It’s way better than the store-bought version and so the time invested in it is completely worth it. Continue reading Fresh pasta

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
