Ep. 134 – Rice with Chickpea and Lemon

Or how I destroyed the rice. With a pinterest-inspired vegan recipe – yeeess, I saved several on a Greek sunny day outside. :))) Well, I might be a disaster, but I can’t stand the dishes where the rice is boiled until the grain is gone. Like the traditional pilaf – is a big no-no. 🙂

Ep. special [mexican] – Enchiladas with Zucchini

If we had the version with tortillas, I found another recipe, inspired by Pinterest. Although you probably think that we fill tortillas with zucchini or squash, well, you were wrong. :)) In fact the slices of zucchini will be filled with chicken, in the version with meat. But you can be creative and have a

Ep. 133 – Peasant Soup with Potatoes and Leek

In the original recipe, a ton of chopped leeks (11 cups) is sautéed in 6 tablespoons of butter, then you add a tablespoon of flour and cook for another 2 minutes, put about 1 kg of potatoes cut into large pieces and cover with 5 cups of chicken soup; season with salt, pepper and bay

Cookingbookclub 11| Gennaro’s Recipes

As you remember this year we cook from # 321sourceofinspiration, the number five source being Gennaro Contaldo’s recipes. I really like Gennaro because everything is very simple with him. 😛 The truth is that food must be edible, nutritious, full of nutrients, not just an instagram picture. People cooked food because they needed energy and

Ep. 25 – Another Potatoes Salad

In high school I know I had a few hours of cooking, put in after sewing and crocheting and before those about iron components (what do you know, the real .ro woman from the 90’s couldn’t iron clothes if she didn’t know how to unscrew the iron with a screwdriver…). In theory there was a

Ep. 22 – Green Bean Soup

Well, let’s say it’s a soup because it’s not sour and it doesn’t have too many tomatoes in it. :)) (Otherwise should be “ciorbă”, the local equivalent for a sour soup). Preparing and cooking it takes less than a windows update. 🙂 First open the refrigerator (or pantry, as appropriate). Identify some soup vegetables, e.g.

Ep. 21 – Sort of Spring Rolls

Those things came out so dubious (read: disaster) that it’s worth writing about them 😉 (today’s branding lesson: D). The story is simple. I bought some sheets from the supermarket, made of rice and tapioca, if I remember correctly, to do something with them. That something was the spring rolls, only the sheets are boiled,

Ep. 4 – Transylvanian Chilli

Onions, garlic, carrots, parsnips, peppers if you have, finely chopped, plus oil, salt, pepper, paprika, some hot peppers, for sure cumin, oregano or basil, plus canned tomatoes, plus some smoked meat as it is made in Transylvania, plus canned red beans. Chilli is made with minced beef, at some point I will make the original

Ep. 3 – Oat Cookies

Habemus the recipe. 🙂 In the first bowl we mix 250 g butter, 220 g sugar (brown, if you have) until the sugar melts (so looooong ???), then add 2 eggs, first one, then the other – by hand or with a mixer? the answer is yes; the butter should be cold or at room

Ep. 2 – Some Quince

Recipes for disasters as big as me. ❤ For everyone else there are specialized cooking sites. 🙂 In order to make this recipe, first of all you must have the right ambiance: Pink, listened loudly and about 2-3 utensils dropped by mistake on the tiles, in the neighbor’s head in the apartment below (if you

Ep. 1 – Pretzel from Frau Merkel

This year all articles with my kitchen experiments will be labeled “disaster in the kitchen”. Because there will be recipes for disasters as big as me. 😀 For everyone else there are specialized cooking sites. 🙂 At the end of last year I wanted to make breadsticks. From the recipe on the internet it seemed
