The Start

I am pretty sure I have made a blog exactly one year ago. But never started it. Until now.

It is a fresh start.

So... I am going to post my recipes, recipes I find extremely lovely, recipes I see some potentials in them but need some alterations and my stories behind every piece of recipe. Because one recipe is not only about directions how to make food. One recipe can bring joy, lots of fun, misery, sometimes even tears but most of all, it brings love. The love for food, the love for creating something new and different and the love that the people give us in order to show their gratitude. Because frankly, it is among the best things when we see the appreciation and the shine in their eyes when they dig in and taste the first bites...and then comes the familiar mmmmmmms... =)

Although for me not only the taste is important. Wherever I can use healthier ingredients, I do. Even if I'm making heavenly good brownies, like I did today. Not that it is less fattening..but it is certainly healthier when I use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. Or...I use 60-70% chocolate instead of milk chocolate. It will make it more intense and rich-flavoured. Everyone who has had some of it...well they just say it is the road to heaven =)

I will share the recipe =) bad thing I didn't take any pictures of it and there is not much left anymore...

Today I also made croque monsieur. It is basically a grilled cheese sandwich but not so usual. I saw this one in the movie It's complicated with Meryl Streep. Well, hers in the movie was waaay tastier looking than mine, but its was my very first try and my family liked it, all the same. I am going to play with the original recipe until I get what I love and then I will post it on here, too!

For now, I think I finish this entry...

  4. If you want to make sure that you are working on a great piece that will impress your teacher, then you should carefully pick a topic for your writing. This is especially relevant for compare and contrast essays which is at risk of failing if the theme is boring and banal.

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
