When I was a child, in Italy, there was a lollipop called “Strawberry flower”. This dessert reminds me of my childhood I love refreshing desserts and panna cotta: this combination seems perfect for hot season. Even if it may seem complicated because of many ingredients and methods, it is easy to prepare. No baking is required, so it is perfect for summer season.
I bake cookies almost once a week. I tried this different recipe of white chocolate cranberries cookies and I can’t tell you how chewy, tender on the inside and so delicious they are. My husband is a strict “only dark chocolate chips”, but these cookies are a gorgeous compromise.
Strawberries field: a recipe from the famous italian pastry chef Luca Montersino. (http://www.eataly.com/nyc-pastry/) A layer of soft limoncello sponge cake, a frothy strawberries mousse and a yogurt jelly. A fresh, soft and mouth-watering dessert. Strawberries come from my , but you can buy at the market. Hurry up, because strawberries season is going to end.
To celebrate our return, I wanted something rich, elegant and something with chocolate. Modern cakes, characterized by layers of different consistencies, give the result to seem a special day or occasion. About modern cakes I appreciate the delicate structure and soft and moist interior. The chocolate sponge layer adds a richness of flavour. Every slice is pure bliss.
When I was a child I spent several years in Puglia on holiday and Taralli (bagels) were my favorite snacks. Only recently I had the opportunity to taste them again, then I decided to try to make them at home. After several attempts, I found my perfect recipe: I replaced a portion of flour with potato starch to give more crispness. Tasty by themselves, perfect with a glass of Prosecco.
Simple ingredients, but do not under-estimate the power of butter, sugar and chocolate. Here, white chocolate, sweet and buttery for a delightful taste, especially together with tangy dried cranberries. I always recommend to chill the dough before baking, to have soft and chewy cookies. What can I say? To try.
I love cookies, every cookie, but Canestrelli are the ones I prefer. Traditional Ligurian cookies with a typical flower shape, Canestrelly are delicious, friable and buttery. But…….who does not know Canestrelli? Perfect treat for breakfast, delicious with a cup of tea or simply if you want something tasty and gorgeous.
Potatoes buns are beloved because of their lightness. The recipe is very easy to execute and loaves are fluffy and full of flavor, totally delicious, and with fresh, chopped rosemary in the dough, they are fabulous. These loaves are easy enough to make everyday but special enough to serve to friends and guests.
Crunchy cookies. The combination of heavy cream with the toasted sesame seeds makes the taste of these cookies unexpected and wonderful. Generally, sesame seeds generally are used to coat cookies, while here, they are in the dough. That’s the reason why the cookies are very, very tasty and luscious. Perfect for breakfast, for a tea break, or any moment during the day, expecially in Christmas holidays. To taste and enjoy.
Les Macarons, so famous and with a big reputation. What are Macarons? They are meringue cookies sandwiched together, with the most tasteful fillings. Only just a few ingredients to make the perfect cookie. They are not so complicated to make, they are made with Italian Meringue, but some steps have to be very precise and accurate. Even if you need several attempts to get the perfect Macarons, I suggest you, once in your life, to try. Being the second attempt, to make things a little bit easier, they are filled with raspberry jam. Absolutely perfect.
