As you could probably see, this blog is not working anymore.

I`m keeping it the way it is since some of my favorite recipes are here. So, this blog will stay as it is, and hopefully it will be useful to people who stop by.

So, that`s it. Goodbye :)

Flourless Brownies

brownies

Since it`s passover, and I was asked to bring a flourless dessert to some Seder, I thought that brownies would be the perfect dessert. I was trying to find a recipe that did not include matzo meal or other flour substitute.  I found this recipe, by the lovely Nigella Lawson, that included ground nuts Рjust what I was looking for.

This recipe is an perfect replacement for the ordinary brownies, and also have a great nutty flavor. Also, it is a one bowl recipe, a thing that makes it just perfect. With these few ingredients, you get a very, very rich result.

To make the brownies look perfect after cutting them, I suggest, as I do with all brownies recipes, to put them in the fridge for at least two hours, and only when chilled, cut then into squares. Though it is not suggested in the recipe, I stored the brownies in the fridge, and served them just out from the fridge.

Almond Cookies

This recipe was in my “to do” list for at least two years. It is the kind of recipe, that you know that you want to make right when you open your brand new cookbook. There was something about this recipe, although it is not sophisticated, that attracted me. I`m happy to say that this was a great success, and I would defiantly make these again.

These are lovely cookies. I can`t think of any other description for them. They have the most delicious lemony taste, and the crispy almond coating, really gives it this extra something.

You`ll be surprised of the quantity of the cookies that this recipe makes (don`t worry about that, they`ll disappear before you even notice). Just  make kind of tiny rolls, even if it may look a bit small, trust me on that one. Also, make sure to bake the cookies until golden, you want the almond coating to be very crispy.
