attention: lots of food pictures will follow ;)
So I'm still trying to make at least 1 new recipe each week. Some weeks I don't succeed some weeks I make several. It has been pretty warm here, so we mostly have light lunch (read sandwiches) and most evenings I'm just too tired to cook something new but just throw whatever is in the fridge together and improvise but I digress.
What did we have for lunch today? In fact the same thing as yesterday: pasta-salad
The recipe is very yummy. I pretty much followed it as written I only omitted the olives since I just don't like olives. I added mini mozarella-cheese balls instead. We were invited to a pot-luck and everybody thought it was a winner. I agree!
For something a bit more unusual:
Millet with cream
DH and I think, it's a winner too. As you can see I made it with cherries instead of strawberries but since I have tried the strawberry-version and it's great too. The only thing I would (and have) change is leaving the raisins off. Ours were way too hard and didn't enhance the taste at all...
I've been trying new baking recipes as well
This cake is called "Mole-cake" (no moles inside but cherries and bananas) because it's supposed to look like a molehill. The recipe came from "Dr. Oetker Freude am Backen"
The cake is very moist and spongy. Perfect.
And since I do love yeastdough. Apricotswirl-cake
Tonight I'm going to make soup using red bellpeppers and mascarpone... and next week will be baking-galore since the twins first birthday is coming up!
