Sweet sweet life

As I am having an extremely hard final tomorrow, what better can I do than blog? Right? :D Actually, I am just having a break before going to my garden with my notes, articles and tan while opening my mind to all the highly interesting stuffs I'll be needing in order to pass... But what is sweeter than studying under the sun, soaking all the vitamin D and warmth and happiness?? :) Oh right! iced coffee! Which I'm sipping contentedly, and it all makes me think: Life is Great! As we already know from KFC hahahaaa

This sweet mood makes me want to post some pictures of my baking in the past month. Recipes won't be included since I really shouldn't procrastinate (too) much. But I will say that baking is one of the best things in life! It has creativity, productivity, functionality, joy and above all love! The only thing that makes me say no to baking (other than saving up money) is that I perfectly know that if I bake, then I will eat, too. And way too much sugar is definitely not the best. So I just keep to eating healthy and hopefully sugar-free in the weekdays and I allow myself to indulge in baking something delicious in the weenend! The only problem is that I always forget to take pictures of most of the things I make...Oh well...

German Chocolate Cupcakes
It was a present and all I can say...Everyone loved it! Although I am really not a fan of cupcakes...At all. But these were heavenly. So moist, and the frosting inside...Perfect. Even though, one is like 15000 calories :D


Vanilla Cheesecake Bites with Chocolate ganache
I got addicted to bake not muffins in the muffin form :) These are not the prettiest, for sure, but tasted so good! My family don't really like cheesecake (why, why oh why???) but they absolutely loved these. Not the traditional cheesecake taste and with the ganache...Oh MY. Lovely.


A Hungarian dish
It is like cinnamon rolls, only a lot more time consuming...The rolls are filled with thick plum jam and then poppyseeds were coating them and when they are ready to be served I made an orange-vanilla sauce to put it on...They were yummy.


And who doesn't love mojito?? :P

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…

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P
So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utterly deliciou…
