    Romanian biscuits

    This is a recipe that my grandmother used sometimes to make biscuits. Very simple and with not many ingredients but it tastes delicious and can be moulded and decorated in different ways. Ingredients: – 3 eggs – 3 cups of sugar ( I only put 1 1/2 cups of sugar as I prefer them not as sweet) – 3 cups of oil – 6 cups of plain flour (you can add one more if you think that the composition is too runny at the end though) – the zest of one lemon – one teaspoon of baking powder – the juicy of half a lemon – one teaspoon of vanilla…

    My world

    I never been the best in doing things, Every time I had a project like knitting or drawing at school my mum use to help me and basically do it for me. I don’t even know how to hold a needle in my hand to tell you the truth. I tried to stitch but things just don’t come nice out of my hand… When it comes to drawing…oh dear the only things I know how to draw are a house and a flower. If you ask me to draw anything else….then my drawings are just ridiculously funny! One thing I always enjoy doing though was cooking. And when I become…

    Baking cupcakes

    Last week my daughter and i experimented baking and decorating cupcakes. We were not very successful because we forgot about the cupcakes baking in the oven and they end up a bit dry. Thanks God that there was enough icing and decoration to put on them and cover them up. My daughter love eating them though: I used a basic cupcake recipe from a book i bought from a charity shop by not a known author. So here it is: 115g margarine 115g caster sugar 115g self-raising flour 2 eggs All you need to do is mix all the ingredients into a bowl and beat until smooth. After separate the…

    Very quick blueberry muffins

    We had this box of blueberries for a while in the kitchen but hubby and boogie didn’t really fancy eating them so I decided to bake some muffins instead. If I wasn’t on a diet I would’ve probably eat them by now but blueberries are not allowed at this rage in my diet. So as I was preparing the dinner, I thought about mixing the ingredients for these muffins as ŵell. Quickly I googled the recipe on my iPad and found this easy recipe on the Good to know website. You can get the ingredients from there. I didn’t really follow the exact measurements and the order of mixing the…
