The season for enjoying lunches in the open air has FINALLY arrived and this black rice shrimp salad with a simple vinaigraitte dressing is going to be the perfect, quick-to-make, tasty dish to bring to picnics and BBQs!
I used the rainy days to do some baking and make once again these delicious cocoa cupcakes topped with my dairy free coffee cream!
So, without further ado, let me tell you how the recipe goes
I wanted to make something scrumptious but easy, that could be offered after a lunch or dinner with family and friends, a dessert that wouldn’t absorb much time while you are already pretty busy preparing the main courses.
Today’s post rather than a recipe is an idea for a last minute meal, using what you have in the fridge and pantry.
In fact this is a dinner I put together the other night after getting home from work.
I opened the fridge, contemplating for a moment its content, you know, when you’re so tired you find yourself staring at things forgetting what you are even doing there.
One day my boyfriend and I were talking about sweets he used to eat before being diagnosed with his many food intolerances, years ago. And he told me: “Oh I miss the good old classic tart, you know the one with LOTS of jam in it? Apricot jam! Lots of it. That’s my kind of tart”.
Some mornings, especially when it’s cold and rainy outside, you wake up and you know you are going to need a comforting breakfast to start the day on the right foot and face all the work and errands and chores ahead.
Hi all and welcome back!
I hope you are having a great week! I for sure am so happy that days are getting “longer” and we can finally enjoy daylight until late in the afternoon again. To me this time of the year kind of feels like breathing again and having more time to do things after work.
Today I want to share with you one of our traditional recipes, more precisely it is typical of the region I am from, Liguria, a beautiful stripe of land between low mountains and the Riviera, in the north west of Italy.
So here we are with the last of my three ideas for the holidays menu and I won’t hide it: as much as I love the two savory dishes I previously posted (creamy baked pasta and veggie casserole), I couldn’t wait to get to the dessert.
As it happens pretty much with every meal, that is. Sometime I would have dessert even after breakfast. Yes I’m that bad.
And the fact I love cakes and chocolate and citrus fruits and this one has them all in each bite, might have a lot to do with my enthusiasm for this recipe too.
But let’s get to chocolaty business, my dear:
Hellooo! So today it’s time for my second savory recipe, hoping to help you in your search for gluten- and dairy-free ideas for the holidays menu.
This one is just as easy as my baked creamy pasta, because, you know, I have deep respect for my laziness at Christmas too.
So here’s how you make it:
