Brioche Burger Buns

Brioche Burger Buns
Brioche dough tends to be heavy, as it is an enriched dough. This means that, in addition to the usual suspects to make bread, such as flour, water, salt and yeast, brioche dough includes egg, butter & full-fat milk. These buns, however, are light, airy, soft. So we have an enriched dough with a great taste, and not a heavy dough, with which brioche is usually made.
Making these homemade buns, with a neutral taste, so that they can be made sweet or savory choices and to enjoy them in many different ways:
Plain to accompany a meal or make sandwiches & hamburger. Since they are not sweet at all by choice.
Plain to accompany a meal or make sandwiches & hamburger. Since Cut in half and spread with butter and jam for a pleasant, hearty breakfast, they are not sweet at all by choice.
Filled with chocolate, praline, jam of our choice or chestnut cream spread, like the ones here, to make them more festive… and which are our preference for Christmas Day.
You decide, choose and make the most delicious fluffy brioche buns for incredible combinations.
Yours!

Merry Christmas!

Almond Pie-Birthday Cake

Almond Pie-Birthday Cake
Cake with Almonds, syrupy and flavored with liqueur. Whitened & grated almonds make this almond pie very tasty. The syrup at the end (and in the right amount) flavors it wonderfully and makes it tender, soft and delicious.
We made it a Cake / Birthday Cake because… because we like it that way… and to simplify the procedures we sprinkled it with a little icing sugar. Alternatively we can put almond slivers on top or just grated almonds.
Yours!

Hazelnut Cookies

We make beautiful hazelnuts, buttery biscuits and enjoy them with coffee and a book. They are consumed in moderation because they become really addictive, we can comfortably eat a lot of them, a lot!

We spend some quality time with our children, making these wonderful cookies together.

Zucchini Pie with Frumenty & Feta Cheese

Zucchini Pie with Frumenty & Feta Cheese
This is the perfect savory pie you can make when you have overloaded your refrigerator shelves with zucchini from the garden or just got a few more from the flea market or grocery store. The key to this recipe is that you have to completely squeeze the grated zucchini to remove the excess water, so that it does not end up being made into a soup. The rest is a simple game of synthesis of ingredients in a good, very good traditional pie sheet, to highlight the taste of a unique zucchini pie with Greek Feta & Sour Frumenty/ Trachana in Greek …

Little Aubergine Pies with Homemade Kourou Dough

Little Aubergine Pies with Homemade Kourou Dough
A Kourou Dough -yogurt dough- so pliable & velvety, which you will love for the comfort of its management. The pies are filled with whatever stuffing we like. Wonderful Aubergine Pies were made here, very tasty & fluffy and where the tender, grated, biscuit dough competes equally with the wonderfully delicious stuffing with eggplant and Greek cheeses, such as Gruyère & kasseri. The blue poppy seed gives them an extra click of flavor.
A suggestion for a snack for the morning coffee but also for a beer or… why not, with an easy drink and fruity wine, iced & dry Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie -the most popular variety of Italy- on our summer terrace with dear friends.
Cheers!

Fresh Apricot Clafoutis

Fresh Apricot Clafoutis
It's apricot time and I'm happy. I really love these round, juicy fruits, with the color of the sunset and the velvety skin. Few other fruits, when ripe, have such a creamy texture and strong aroma that I like to smell them with deep breaths, as if I had to store it in my memory.
I realize that there are several apricot recipes on the blog which means I always put them first when it came time… If we share the same enthusiasm came the right recipe for this year, so you can enjoy them uniquely in a delicious Clafoutis.

Healthy Banana Pancakes

Healthy Banana Pancakes
What is so special about this recipe? Well, let's start with the pancakes. They are extremely soft, light, healthy & fluffy like soft pillows! Roasted & crushed hazelnuts add a wonderful, crispy texture and the unique aroma of roasted nuts. The layers of caramelized bananas in maple syrup and brown sugar in the intermediate layers of the «tower», sometimes a little sloping to look like that of Tower of Pisa, add even more delicious, sweet and sticky flavors to these Pancakes. You just have to try them on to know what I'm talking about!
From above we decorate with whatever we like. If they are spring pancakes, we put antioxidant fruits of the forest, such as strawberries, raspberries & blueberries, which are among the superfoods, almond slivers & plenty of syrup.
Make a lot and fill, with these healthy Pancakes, children's plates with all the above and they will be amazing…
Yours
