Shrimp scampi courgetti

Hello Everyone!

I know, I’m a bit late jumping on the courgette train. But better late than never, right?

I had been studying courgetti recipes for a while but never got a spiralizer. So many to choose from! I didn’t know which one to get. Until earlier this year when an electric one was in sale and was mine to take away at reduced prize, on top of which I was given an extra reduction at the till. I’m very happy with it and have used it many times. One of my favourite recipes using my spiralizer is shrimp scampi courgette, a recipe I’m sharing with you today. I hope you’ll like it.

Happy cooking!

Rosy pistachio tart

Hello everyone!

The recipe I’m sharing with you today, is another variation on the frangipane tart and the Zahoriktorte I posted a while ago.

I loved making those, so I thought I’d go for another kind, using a different nuts and jam and adding rose water instead of almond extract or vanilla extract.

I’m not a great fan of rose water and though having been careful as to how much to add, it was too much for me. Luckily for me, my colleagues at work have a sweet tooth and the rosy pistachio tart went down very well: they loved it!

I hope you’ll have a go at baking it. Let me know if you have.
Happy baking!

Cherry pie filling

Hello Everyone!

Would you believe me, if I told you I never had pie? Well I haven’t. At least not a sweet pie. I had a steak and kidney pie in a pub in Penshurst, England, a number of years ago. But a sweet one? Never!

A few weeks ago I thought I’d have a go at making a sweet pie filling and I did. I have used it in several dishes, but not a pie. That’ll be something for me to try soon.

In this post, I’m sharing my recipe for cherry pie filling. I hope you’ll like it.

Happy cooking!

Homemade pesto

Hello Everyone!

I’ve always been fond of pesto. I used to buy it but making it is really easy peasy, so I now make my own.

I love it on pasta, fish, as dipping sauce for my Italian kebabs, with chicken… and it’s very easy to make. Keep on reading and find out!

Happy cooking!
