Cheese Cake Brownies

Cheese Cake Brownies

These might become your favorite brownies: soft, squishy brownies with a cheese cake filling.   Another recipe that will add a few centimeters to your waistline just by reading the ingredient list. But not to worry, this is the last cheese cake for the time being and I promise to try to post at least a couple of skinnier recipes during the next series. 🙂 But in the meantime, I…

White Chocolate Apricot Cheesecake

White Chocolate Apricot Cheesecake

Delightfully sweet and creamy cheesecake made with white chocolate and topped with fresh apricots. I hope you are not bored with me only posting cheesecakes this week! Well, if you like them as much as I do, you wouldn’t, there are so many ways of making a cheesecake, it can never get boring, in my opinion. This recipe is another one of our favorites. Originally made with strawberries, I decided…

Blueberry Lemon Curd Cheesecake

Blueberry Lemon Curd Cheesecake

Creamy and soft, no bake, lemon curd cheesecake marbled with blueberry pie filling. Another favorite cheesecake to start the week. This time the creamiest, softest cheesecake I have ever made, topped with homemade canned blueberry pie filling. A treat for everybody! This might also be the quickest, simplest cheesecake I have ever made. Main reason for that is the use of canned ingredients, ingredients I already had in the fridge/pantry,…

Chocolate Cheesecake

Chocolate Cheesecake

Nigella Lawson’s incredible chocolate cheesecake. This was my first chocolate cheesecake ever. After taking the first bite I was speechless. As I am now! I really have no words to describe how unbelievably good this cake was. I am a big fan of Nigella Lawson, I have almost all her books and there are quite a few recipes I cooked out of them. I love her books not only for…

German Cheesecake

German Cheesecake

Käsekuchen – the German cheesecake: light, creamy and topped with pearled meringue. I think I might have mentioned it before but, anyway, I will say it again. I think Germany makes not only the best bread there is on this planet, but also, when it comes to cake baking, the German bakers are just hard to top. Who hasn’t heard of the famous Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Gateau) the Zwetschgenkuchen…

Cherry Cheesecake

Cherry Cheesecake

Wonderfully creamy cheesecake topped with homemade cherry pie filling. Secret Recipe Club time again! My assignment this month was Jamie’s blog “Our Eating Habits”. Jamie is a coffee-loving mother of 3 children, a huge Christmas and Disney fan. What I found very interesting while reading her “Above” section was the fact that she’s homeschooling her children. It might not be of such an interest for American readers, but for me,…

Zucchini Beef Skillet

Zucchini Beef Skillet

A large skillet full of comfort food: zucchini, potatoes, ground beef and herbs. Easy, quick and completely satisfying. This is one of those meals put together on a Sunday afternoon, when you actually have nothing planned and you just start searching your fridge and freezer in search of something to eat. I actually plan our weekly meals, I love to do it every Saturday or Sunday evening, I like searching…

Vegan Zucchini Cashew Curry

Vegan Zucchini Cashew Curry

Vegan, creamy coconut curry with zucchini and chickpeas and topped with crunchy, roasted cashews. Another zucchini recipe, another curry, a good curry is one of my favorite ways of enjoying vegetables and vegan dishes. I am not even remotely a vegan, not even vegetarian, but still I try to keep our intake of meat to an acceptable minimum, so most of my cooking evolves around vegetables and at least twice…

Zucchini Beef Meatballs

Zucchini Beef Meatballs

Juicy, tender and delicious beef meatballs with zucchini and Parmesan. I am starting with a big statement today: these are the juiciest, most delicious meatballs I have made in a long time!!! No kidding!!! I make lots of meatballs: beef, pork, chicken, turkey, fish, then vegetarian with different grains, nuts, chickpeas, vegetables and so on. And to tell you the truth, I can get pretty enthusiastic with most of them and…

Mirror Glaze Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Mirror Glaze Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Mirror glaze chocolate zucchini cake, the sweetest way of enjoying your zucchini this summer. A nice chocolate-zucchini cake is a “must” for me every summer. I don’t often bake chocolate cakes, but every summer, when the zucchini keep coming and coming, I can’t resist putting some of them in a chocolate cake. It just has to be! So, the same this year. I saw this recipe on a German blog…
