[cakesandcoffee 14] – tiramisu

Real Tiramisu, made by Chef, the classic recipe. With biscuits, coffee with Amaretto or Marsala and egg cream with mascarpone and sugar, covered with a generous layer of cocoa.

Ep. 111 – pita with egg salad

It is said that the egg salad was eaten at the English tables in the 17th-18th centuries, after which mayonnaise was invented, after which egg salad sandwiches appeared. In our country, almost everyone has eaten something like this at least once in their life, only it must have potatoes. And olives. And sour cucumbers. LOL.

Ep. 110 – Niçoise salad

Ingredients: boiled egg, tuna, boiled potatoes, olives, red onion, tomatoes, lettuce, boiled green beans.

Ep. 109 – chicken brine

Well, today I thought we’d celebrate with chicken brine. 🙂 I don’t know about you, but I drool when I hear the word brine. 😛 There are different recipes on the internet, but this one is extremely simple, with 4 ingredients, chicken (boneless thighs), bell peppers (red and green), hot peppers and tomatoes. And a

Special ep. [withyeastandflour] – French toast

Well, this competitive break is good for something. 😀 For example, I found out that the bread in the egg, which you know as ‘frigănele’, is actually French toast. If I stretch the egg with water, others use milk; plus the topping can be honey, or sugar, or sweet and spicy syrups. Like some kind

Ep. 101 – PB&J

If I hadn’t been hit in the head by spring asthenia, I would have given you the recipe for Cosmopolitan. 🙂 That’s how you’ll have to settle for a high-calorie recipe that contains carbs, protein and fat, plus gluten and sugar. Yes, mother of all disasters in the kitchen, the American version of the classic

Ep. 100 – Claudia cake :)

After exactly 10 years since I got the recipe and 99 episodes of #disasterinthekitchen, I set out to make the only cake that, for unexplained reasons, is called Claudia. 🙂 Although, originally, it is also known as Albina or Albinița cake, more than likely due to the bee honey sheets. 🙂 Hungarians have their own

Ep. 95 – grilled polenta with cheese (bulz)

In honor of a new day off, today we have a traditional recipe, which comes from the Thracians who traveled to the new world and returned with the corn cobs back. 😛 To get it out, you need quality bellows cheese (brânză de burduf, in Romanian). At least that’s what my mother says, who is

Ep. 92 – turkey drowning soup: D

Well, if we all ended up healthy in the new year twenty-twenty, I stole a recipe from my friends with Hungarian grandparents. 😛 Pulyka nyuvaszto or turkey drowning soup translated takes you out of the drunkenness of the holidays with the speed of Transylvanian light. 🙂 How do you make a turkey drowning soup? In

Ep. 91 – 321 dough (linzer, isler)

Well, you will see the best pictures today, the ones for guests, but to get to this level I can tell you that I burned a few trays of cookies in the last two or three Christmases. 🙂 Dough 321 as I name it, to make it easier to remember, is a very fine dough

Special ep. – panettone

When you don’t know how to make brioche, what do you do? You make panettone. 🙂 On one of the few times I tried to make a brioche, it grew, looked impeccable, but had no taste. Because I forgot to put salt in it. :))) It’s just that this year I discovered some candied fruits

Ep. 87 – quince stew

I wanted to brag with the food that I made with these two little hands…. only that my father was not impressed at all and he is the only one who appreciates the classic quince food in our family. ? So today we have a classic recipe, in a slightly disastrous version. ? The recipe

Ep. 76 – pickled salad

I don’t know about others, but when I think of pickles, I salivate instantly! :)) It is true that due to global warming we no longer consume so many pickles (or because we no longer drink alcohol ?? ?), but Xmas cannot come if we have not made at least one pickled salad. ? Well,

Ep. 72 – blackberry jam

Well, first of all, in order to implement this super delicious recipe – and slightly bitter :)) – you need organic blackberries, picked with your little hand from your friends’ garden. You have no friends with the garden, you have no recipe. ? Secondly, you need gelling sugar – because we only like disastrously fast

Ep. 64 – biscuit salami (chocolate salami)

Well and what do we have here? Biscuit salami. ❤ Childhood dessert, comfort food, de-li-ci-ous, are all synonymous for the same thing, an easy dessert to make, whose recipe I learned in secondary school. Yes, I had some kind of cooking/ housekeeping classes from which I didn’t learn much, except the recipes for biscuit salami,

Ep. 62 – meatball soup

In the local culture, the classic meatball soup (or cousins, as we call it – is a Romanian language joke) is a test for the informal citizenship exam.
