It’s autumn, and we start to enjoy the confort of our homes, it’s warmth, that everything it’s going to be ok feeling. You know! This dish, it’s perfect for those moments, when you need comfort food, a hot shower, a book, a good movie and a hug.

Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cinnamon and Chocolate

Pumpkin Bundt cake with cinnamon and chocolate

Pumpkin days are not over, yet! I still have a couple of aces up in my sleeve. I hope I will manage to convince you to do this Pumpkin Bread, that by the way, has chocolate in it… sooo… yeah! This cake was loved even by a pumpkin hater person. It seems that chocolate really makes things better. Hmm, i could survive just with that, that’s a nice thought! Dark chocolate that will melt in your mouth, that sweet and bitter taste, that makes you hate it and love it in the same time, and take another bite just to be ravished again. Gulp!

Quiche with Pumpkin and Gorgonzola

Quiche with pumpkin and gorgonzola

As you know this month it’s all about pumpkin! Sice i got a huuuuge pumpkin last year from my grandmother, and it’s still holding up – now in the freezer, i decided to cook something new everytime. It all started with a Pumpkin soup with garlic (recipe here), and it continued with this amazing Quiche with Gorgonzola in it. So you tell me, how can you not like it? It has smelly cheese!

But since this pumpkin journey  I discovered that the world is divided into two: the pumpkin lovers and there are those who hate pumpkin from the bottom of their souls. As it is Lex Luthor for Superman, The Mandarin for the Iron Man, Green Lanthern to Sinestro, Jonah Hex to Quentin Turnball… their nemesis!  Continue reading →

Pumpkin soup with garlic

pumpkin soup

This story begins with one year old pumpkin, that my grandma gave it to me – last year. It was a very big and heavy pumpkin, and until these days i didn’t know what to do with it. All i could think was a pumpkin pie, but i’m kinda sick and tired of the same pumpkin pie… so this year i have a plan! I think i’ll give it a try and bake a Banana Bread but with pumpkin, some Pumpkin cookies… and who knows what else. We’ll see! Continue reading →

No bake cheesecake with fruits

Cheesecake in a jar

I’m a sucker for easy recipes and cheesecake (touche pussy cat!) so, when Irina told me about this cheesecake recipe made by the brilliant people from My backing addiction , i said Hell yeah! You know, if you are a beginner in kitchen, you don’t want a million steps to follow to eat something sweet. And i’m not saying it’s not worth it, it’s just that sometimes you are lazy like a daisy, well for those days, you have this dessert.  Continue reading →

Baked French Potatoes with Parmesan

Cartofi frantuzesti2

When we moved in together, two years ago, this was one of the first recipes I cooked for dinner. I do not know why they call it “French”, maybe just to sound more pretentious, because they have nothing french. I can imagine a scene… Him: “Honey, what we have today for dinner?” She “Baked French Potatoes!” Him: “Ooooo, french you say!” So if you want to impress someone with a recipe, juat add the word french somewhere in your recipe, and there you have it, you’ll look like you know what you are doing.

Ricotta and Spinach Tortellini with truffle sauce

Ricotta and Spinach Tortellini with truffle sauce

Fresh pasta, truffle sauce and cream. It sounds good and it is delicious. Did I mention it takes about 10 minutes to make it?

Every time I make this recipe I start missing Italy, and Tuscany with its food (and prosecco hihihi), the views and the amazing places that I’ve been to.

Don’t mind me and my daydream, let me tell you more about this recipe: Continue reading →
