Tart with apricots, almonds and thyme

I have been a bit quiet recently. I have had no time (and didn’t take the time) to write news posts, take picture of dishes and write recipes. I think it’s the first time since I started the blog that

Aubergines and dried apricot pasta

The picture is not great but this was a yummy combo!  I was not sure it would be good when I added the dried apricot in the pan with aubergines but those two make a surprisingly good match. The sweetness of

Fava beans, dill and poached egg

Welcome to heaven…with this amazing recipe from Darya! I have never been disappointed by her recipes from Middle East (well by any of her recipe actually) but this one deserves a special attention. This Baghali Ghatogh is a Iranian recipe. it’s really

Apple and blackberries tart

I’m not sure blackberries are really in season, especially since the ones I bought were unequally sweet and tasty. So I thought the best way to use them would be to put them in a tart and I was quite

Cantonese sponge cake

This cake is very light and perfect to end a summer diner with some fresh fruit coulis. It is apparently quite famous in Hong Kong although it comes from the Malay community in Singapour. You don’t necessarily need a steam

Baked eggs on vine leaves/ Oeuf cocotte sur feuilles de vigne

Version française ci-desssous This a bit an unorthodox way to have vine leaves but it’s very good! I was inspired by the « brunch in a mug » recipe from the great website Sorted but instead of using beans, I have used the

Strawberries and oat bars/ Barres à la fraise et à l’avoine

Version française ci-dessous Amazing for breakfast with a cup of tea (oat and tea… how British is that?!)! I couldn’t make them very presentable because not firm enough. It’s most likely because I have replaced the sugar with honey and

Peas and Stilton pasta

That’s unfortunate I have not used fresh peas for this recipe as I must admit you lose a bit of their taste when using cooked peas. The mix with Stilton is however very nice and makes very creamy pasta. The dish

Spicy tempeh/ Tempeh épicé

I had already tried (and liked) tempeh but this recipe is really convincing. If you are vegetarian, forget the boring tofu and start cooking this fermented soya. It has a nice nutty flavour and wonderfully absorbs the taste of other ingredients.

Carrot cake

Version française ci-dessous I had this recipe in the list of the hundreds (thousands??) of cakes I want to bake once since a long time. It’s a classic and although it often comes with icing, I just made it « naked ».

Petits gâteaux à la crème de café et chocolat

Avocado pasta/ Pâtes à l’avocat

Version française ci-dessous These pastas are a bit decadent but absolutely delicious. I have made sort of pesto with avocado, parmigiano, basil and walnuts and finished to cook the spaghettis with this fatty mix (it’s good fat :D). Delicious! Ingredients
