    Baking with kids: Cookies

      When kids are on their holidays they always demand sweet things don’t they? The “Mummy please can you make me some cookies/muffins/ice cream etc. I can help!” And you are like me the mother of a 5 year old you know that the help is not there for long – they get bored fast bless them. This time around she even help for longer and these cookies actually took longer than expected because her little sister wanted to participate as well so I end up holding her in my arms. This is a recipe we always use and is just great as a base! You can even add cacao…

  • Cream for the romanian biscuits

    A couple of days ago i posted a recipe for romanian biscuits. In the meantime i actually made a cream that goes with the simple biscuits. If you put this cream between two biscuits and then drizzle them with some chocolate then they become “fursecuri”.  I don’t think there is an english word that describes them but they are basically biscuits with cream. I took a picture with my phone so i apologise as it is not the best picture ever but it shows you how the biscuits should look like basically: Ingredients for the cream filling: – 250gr unsalted butter – 500 gr super fine sugar – 3 tbsp cocoa powder…

  • 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…

  • Carrot biscuits recipe

    Carrot biscuits

    Last weekend I baked carrot biscuits. Saturday morning I discovered that the carrots o had started to get a bit mouldy and something had to be done. So I start looking for a recipe. I found one on a Romanian website/forum but I think that the lady didn’t write all the quantities correctly as when all mixed everything was a bit dry. So I added a bit more oil and a bit more of others and I managed to bake some quite nice biscuits.   I know they might not be the best looking biscuits/cookies but my daughter and my hubby love them. They are not very sugary either so…

  • Milk chocolate cheesecake

    I’ve been in quite a mood for cooking and making cake this last weekend. Over the time I tried and developed this recipe for milk chocolate cheesecake. I remember that the first time I used dark chocolate but my husband and my daughter found it a bit too strong – chocolaty. But if you like chocolate – like me – add the darkest chocolate you can find. Ingredients: 150g digestive biscuits – Sainsbury’s own 45g butter melted – Sainsbury’s own 100 g caster sugar 120ml whipping cream 150g milk chocolate, melted and cooled 2 tablespoons cocoa powder mixed with a little hot water 1 tub cream cheese – Sainsbury’s own…
