Ultimate cheesecake

No comments
American cheesecakes are the best. I have my favorite recipe that's always a hit...leaving us with no leftovers. But it takes 24 hours to make, so you have to plan way ahead. And wait...

When your turkey is already out of the oven, and the family gathering around the table, surprise everybody and throw a brownie together...

Ciambellone with apples

...or ring cake. Soft, delicate, little sweet, I mean - comfort food. For Hania, for me, for Julian.
Hania is swallowing a big piece now, just got back from school. Happy, she is. So am I. I had mine a minute ago.

Chocolate-almond little cookies

Nice recipe. All you need is chocolate, almonds, egg and sugar. And some spices: cloves and cinnamon.

Italian, I should add. The magic worked again. I had hands full today but the smell of chocolate made everybody feel good. The day is coming to an end. The cake is beautiful.

Italian rustic apple cake

I survive Winter thanks to apples. I eat a lot of apples. I wanted to research once if you can eat too many. I didn't get a straight answer.

Chocolate amaretti cake

It was a hit. It always is. Delicious, simple, fast and foolproof. What more could you want? I've made it so many times, alternating here and there a bit - always a success! A perfect dessert if you want to take something to your friends,  just like I did a couple of days ago. Nobody will ever be disappointed. And they will always want the recipe!

Cranberry cake with caramel-almond sauce

No comments
There is a crunchy crust on top, the cake is delicate and sweet, the sauce makes is all better. The outside is brown, the inside is yellow with red cranberries here and there. This dessert is exquisite, the sauce makes the cake look and taste refined.
