Tortellini Soup

Soups have become a staple in my kitchen. Not that I make soups that often but I love it when someone else makes them for me! :) Today was the exception when I decided to make some delicious minestrone like soup that is filled with many yummy tortellinis! I really am no good at making soups but this time I got it right! Actually, more than right :) I am completely smitten with this recipe! So light on the stomach yet so comforting. The ideal winter lunch for me :) Hope you'll like too!

Tortellini Soup

2 packages of cheese or meaty tortellini
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 carrots - diced
1 onion - minced
200 grams mushrooms - cut into smaller pieces
8 sausages - cut into pieces
1 can of beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
about 5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
dried oregano
dried basil
parmesan cheese

In a large pan, heat the oil and add the sausages, onion and carrots. Saute them until they get soft. Season with salt and pepper. After 7 minutes, add in the mushrooms. Stir occasionally. Sprinkle them generously with the oregano and basil. Cook for another 5-7 minutes.
Transfer the sausage-vegetable mixture to a large cooking bowl. Pour the broth and tomato cans on them. Bring the soup to a boil. Add salt to taste. 
When the soup is simmering, add the beans and tortellinis to the soup. Cook as long as the package indicates. Mine took about 2 minutes.
Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy :)

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!

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
