You know, as much as I’d like it to be true, baking is not my forte. I mean, there are times when everything goes perfect and you bake the cake you wanted all along. Other times the reality kicks in, proving that, well, a little bit more practice is needed. And nothing wrong with that. …

We were invited for dinner to our friends the other day, and somehow there is this unspoken rule that whoever is invited has to bring the dessert. Well, not sure this is entirely true, as wine is also a good idea. Something home baked has that personal touch though. I was planning on bringing some …

Do you also have days when everything what can go wrong, just goes wrong? For me this could be a perfect summary of last week. It has been so frustrating. Not even cooking helped, since even that turned out far from how it’s supposed to look like. But thank heaven for the weekend, as my …

The next recipe is a must for every banana enthusiast. I mentioned before that my company provides fresh fruits for its employees, but as it happens, from time to time, some of it gets left over. I don’t like throwing food away, so most of the times I take it with me and turn it …

You know, in my family there is this unspoken rule, that there has to be a cake, or some other pastry after dinner. It’s normally on Sunday around 3-4pm, where we all would gather with a coffee and a piece of something sweet and just chat. Whenever we visit our relatives we become very aware …

I remember, when I was a kid, my mum used to make ice cream. I can’t say if she used any ready made mix, but I remember she used lots of milk and a hand mixer. Sometimes she would let me do the work after she prepared all the ingredients. It tasted very milky (obviously). …
