A Fighter Jet in the Sky Cake

I can’t believe my little baby has just turned seven! I guess he is not a baby anymore… It seems like he was two yesterday. We’ve been busy lately with all the planning and celebrating (that’s why I’m not always… Continue reading →

Coconut Financiers with Tropical Fruits

I bake with coconut often. This is the only nut my kid can eat. And besides, I like the taste. For these financiers I went with good quality dry papaya and pineapple as a topping, the ones that can be… Continue reading →

Hippo Cake

This is my attempt to recreate a girl’s favorite toy in a cake form for her 3rd birthday. I don’t exactly know why this creature turned out looking so sad. Maybe the fact that I was making it at 2AM… Continue reading →

Focaccia filled with Cheese and Salame (Focaccia con la Ricotta)

There’s something savory for a change; something rustic and delicious in its best Italian simplicity. You can call it a filled focaccia or pie. But either way, the main point remains the same. There are two layers of soft yeasted… Continue reading →

Roasted Strawberry and Thyme Sherbet

And here’s the sherbet I mentioned earlier. It tastes fresh (despite the roasting) and feels creamy (despite the egg yolks absence). I’ve already blogged how much I’m in love with the roasted strawberries. The roasting can turn even grass-like tasting… Continue reading →
