Dutch piadina turnovers.

I’ve found the time to add another flag on the map of my “turnovers world tour “.

Maybe you remember the American ones or the French ones, all of them are made with piadina dough plus a filling which remembers the chosen country.

This time I had hemp flour at home: thinking about hemp then about drug is a very short step: you have to know that hemp has a long tradition in Romagna area too, in the past almost all the fabrics in Romagna were made with hemp.

Grapefruit Sour IPA sherbet.

Grapefruit Sour IPA sherbet.

This is another recipe I created for Cantina della Birra, a shop online dedicated to beers of every kind and nation.

As their blog is in Italian only I’m free to share on mine the recipe in English.

English is the brewery from where the beer I used comes from: Siren Craft Brew, Berkshire.

Pompelmocello is a great IPA, perfect for summer, so I decided to enjoy it into a fresh sherbet, the perfect dessert for a summer dinner.

Spelt salad with cherry tomato, arugula, Parmesan and balsamic vinegar.

Hot summer, nasty summer.

I have a lot of issues, hubby had a work incident and can’t work so I have to work for both.

No time for cooking, no time for writing.

I’m only posting what I have settled in the past months.

I hope holidays and then fall will close this awful period.

This recipe is easy and part of our standard summer weekmeals, I’ ve tried this for the first time years ago in a bistro in Santarcangelo called Ottavino.

Pecorino cheese and black pepper buns.

Pecorino cheese and black pepper buns.

I made this recipe for a lovely contest about sourdough sponsored by a good mill, Molino Dallagiovanna: unluckly I didn’t read part of the rules and I didn’t take a picture of the recipe with the flour bag so I cannnot enter the contest with this recipe.

No matter, I have another good idea but this recipe is too good and I have to post it on blog.

Piadina turnovers with German filling.

Piadina turnovers with German filling.

I’m back after a long iatus, I had things to do, end of the school parties, work, hot weather struggle…

I don’t know if you remember my project about piadina turnovers filled with fillings inspired to different countries.

I did the Icelandic ones, the French ones, the English ones, I’m working on Dutch ones and today I’m posting here the German turnovers.

I made a big big mistake as you can see in photos: I had to make and shoot four different recipes, I was in a hurry and I took the wrong flags to decorate the photos.

Quick gluten- free chocolate dessert.

Quick gluten- free chocolate dessert.

I made this recipe using a ready made gluten- free brisée dough from Buitoni, a famous Italian food brand.

It was a sponsored post as I sometimes work with brands.

Cookies you see are made with that brisée, you just have to take your favourite brisée or puff pastry (gluten- free) and use that.

Chocolate cream is so quick and easy you can make it whenever you need a treat, no matter if you’re celiac.

Sweet and salty peanut biscuits.

Sweet and salty peanut biscuits.

We had a lovely saturday with Lorenzo’s classmates and their parents: scavenger hunt, lunch in the country, chats and laughs.

At home I worked hard because I had no time to housekeeping douring the week; now I’m on the sofa, watching Dexter ( I know, not a new serie but I have to recover some good series from the past) and I have the time to work on this post for tomorrow and thinking about a gluten- free recipe I have to do for a partnership.

Nigella Lawson never miss a hit we can say.

This recipe comes from “ How to be a domestic goddess“, it’s so easy you can make it with children too and those sweet and salty peanut biscuits can stay crisp for days in an airtight box.

Homemade milk candies.

Homemade milk candies.

Every Italian child used to eat Galatine, candies made with milk powder.
They are still a hit among usually eaten candies, I still love them a lot.
I had this recipe wandering around my “Image” fold, it’s a very easy recipe but I’ve never found the time, or the willing, to do it even if I needed this to get rid of some powdered milk I had because I made these milk buns.

Pumpkin and apple spiced chutney.

I’m having a long week end with my son, all alone as dad is out of the city.

We went out by bus, stopped at the park, called a classmate and his mum to play together then we had lunch in a place near the park.

I also met at the restaurant a classmate of mine I didn’t see in uhm, I think twenty years.

Orange sauteed carrots.

Orange sauteed carrots.

This recipe is slightly different from others you can find on blog.

Or at least photos are different: this is because the recipe has been done for a partnership with a famous pots and pans Italian Brand called Moneta and its pan collection Pantone inspired and a supermarket chain.

I’ve been asked to choose a color from some Pantone shades, I’ve always loved blue and I had to enhance this color and I decided to use its complementary color, orange.
