Halloween desserts

I know I don’t write as much as I used to but life is crazy with a 15 months old kid and classes. Luckily we did have time for a Halloween party :D( this was the 6th year in a row). Last year I made skull cupcakes ( check them out) and this year it…

my lentil soup

This is more or less the recipe my mom taught me when I started living on my own. I hope you like it and that you can find the ingredients easily wherever you live. Spicy pork sausage (chorizo) Catalan blood sausage (butifarra) 1 small ham bone Raw white bacon (tocino) 14oz of lentils 1 tomato…

Halloween Cupcakes

My mother-in-law gave me a lekue present for my birthday to make skull chocolates and this was the perfect time to use it for the first time. As always I used Nestle already made dough but this time the lemon flavor. Then I made a vanilla buttercream for the topping (though I don’t know why…

Se que esto no es realmente una receta porque, de hecho, he usado masa para…

Doraemon Cakepops

My little cousin turned 3 on the 26th and we threw a party with his friends. I have been making cupcakes and cakepops for his and his brother’s birthday for quite a while now and, since he likes to watch Doraemon, one of my older cousins, Mercè, and I made some cakepops for them to…

Blackberry Muffins

Since I was little I have always liked blackberries. They grew in the abandoned pieces of land of the street where I live and I recall getting stomach aches from eating too many. The other day some friends and I went for a bike ride and I found some blackberries along the way. I gathered…

Spanakopita

This recipe is very dear to me. It’s quite international because it’s a Greek dish that an Indian girl showed to me when we were living in the United States. (Thank you Nandita! 😉 ) Its name is Spanakopita, which in Greek means spinach pie. This is how I like to cook it for two…
