Traditional Easter Braided Sweet Bread – 2

I love to try out new recipes but when I want to be sure the result is just as I expect I turn to the good old tried recipes. Thus, when my sister left for a trip and gave me the leftovers from her fridge – including a box of whipping cream – I knew … Continue reading

Macedonia

Macedonia (Spanish Fruit Salad)

When my Mr first announced that he would like to eat a Macedonia (Fruit salad in his mother tongue) I thought yeah well, why not – although I have quite negative memories of school lunches complete with those nasty canned fruit salads – so we gave it a go. Boy was I wrong to not … Continue reading

Breakfast fit for a Queen

I will not overcomplicate this: below you see my almost every day breakfast, safe to say a breakfast “fit for a queen” – I’m saying that because if anyone asked me what would I ask for for breakfast, this would be it: a cup of natural yoghurt, a handful of mixed cereals and strawberries. (Well … Continue reading

Fried Cabbage

Fried cabbage is a very versatile thing and I would say a staple in Hungarian cuisine, cabbage pasta being a common dish on the tables in this country (well, it was/is in my family, for sure). It is easy and relatively quick, and can be used as a filling for puff pastry, mix it with … Continue reading

Chocolate and Bailey’s Ice Cream

I always wanted to try making ice cream at home – I do not have an ice cream maker so all those recipes got discarded, but when I came around this recipe I ran to the freezer to check if there is space for a container. Having made myself sure that it fits, I got … Continue reading

Mexican Piglet

No I’m not going to talk about the situation of the Mexican agriculture and animal farms :) This is simply a name I found adequate for this dish that was born out of the recipe of the Flamenco Eggs. Having no corn or chorizo at home, adding sausages and beans to the bell pepper base: … Continue reading

I don’t mind, just another reason to surprise your loved ones with a thoughtful gift that … Continue reading

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

I love spring rolls. Crispy on the outside, tasty and soft on the inside, a quick and satisfying snack for almost every occasion. The only problem is the closest place where they make a good spring roll here in Budapest is relatively far from my place (meaning, when you immediately feel the craving to devour … Continue reading
