Prajitura aromata

Am facut de ziua copilului un tort special, o capodopera (ma laud) atat in ceea ce priveste gustul cat si prezentarea si m-am indragostit de blatul tortului – foile Joconde.

Reteta integrala, respectata cu sfintenie de aici.

Azi am avut chef de ceva dulce, dar nu foarte dulce, pufos si aromat. Asa ca am incercat o imitatie de foi Joconde aromate la maxim cu lamaie.

Am batut spuma 8 galbenuse cu doua linguri zahar pudra, zeama si coaja de la o lamaie, am adaugat o lingura mare cu varf de unt topit si faina cat sa iasa un aluat grosut dar curgator. Albusele le-am batut spuma cu inca 2 linguri de zahar pudra si apoi le-am amestecat cu restul aluatului. Am impartit ochiometric aluatul in trei si am copt la 180 gr cu ventilatie fix 12 minute fiecare foaie.

Am taiat apoi foile in jumatate (ca sa iasa mai inalt) si le-am montat ungand subtire fiecare foaie cu jeleu de zmeura (fara samburi) si cu crema facuta din mascarpone amestecat cu putin jeleu de zmeura.

A iesit asa 🙂

Un deliciu, aromat la maxim cu lamaie si placut de dulce.

Branza la presa

Prima am mancat-o asa ca asta e a doua 🙂

Facuta in vasul de inox, inca n-am reusit sa imi termin formele de lut dar o sa ma stradui 🙂

Acum sta cuminte sa se transforme in cascaval.

Salata improvizata

Ce te faci cand ramai fara salata la felul doi? Dai o raita prin balcon si vezi din ce poti incropi o salata.

Am gasit: ceapa, morcov, mar (in cantitati relativ egale) si un sfert de castravete ratacit prin frigider 🙂

Am dat totul pe razatoare, mai putin ceapa pe care am taiat-o pestisori. Am asezonat cu sare, piper, ulei si otet.

Asadar – salata!

Un deliciu !

Homemade immunity booster

We all know that vitamin C is the best immunity booster. At this time of year, when the weather is cold and dump, our immunity is getting a bit low. So I decided to make an immunity booster.

I used equal quantities of Lingonberries and Seaberries, added just a little bit of water and bring them to a boil until they got soft.

Then I sieved them to obtain a fine liquid

I got about 350 ml of liquid

Then I added 150 ml of honey

I put it in a bottle in the fridge and use it every day by making a large glass of drink.

I put a couple of tablespoons of this concentrated juice in a large glass and then fill it with water.

Super delicious and healthy 🙂 packed full with vitamin C and other vitamins – just perfect to boost the immunity!

Apple peels tea

Don’t throw away your apple peels, they make a nice tea 🙂

Just put the peels in some boiling water, add some spices of your choice, I used: cinnamon, cloves and mint powder and let simmer for few minutes until peels are soften and the spices have released their flavour and you’re done.

Sieve the liquid and add some honey for a sweet taste and some lemon juice, or just enjoy it as it is.

Nice, warm and full of vitamins drink suitable for these autumn days 🙂

Enjoy!
