Tuna and potado patties.

Tuna and potado patties.

I posted a patties recipe just a week ago but I’m here again with another kind because…

Because I love patties, meatballs and similar preparations: they are easy, you can feed a crowd with them, you can often prepare them in advance.

I made these tuna and potado patties for a nice collaboration with a big brand of supermarket called ” La grande I”, this is the supermarket I attend when I’m in Rimini, the one my parents in law always attend for the big grocery shopping.

In this moment of the year baking is, for many, more than a pleasure, it’s part of tradition.

Everyone deserves a good cookie at Christmas so here you are the perfect customizable recipe for everyone, vegan or not.

Why customizable?

After a quite long iatus I’m back.

I almost forgot this month’s date for Bloggalline’s recipe exchange, I’m really late this time but I have pretty good excuses…

Yes, excuses, I mean more than one: hubby cut himself on the hand, in the same point he cut himself only four months ago.

It means I have to work for both, I did it for the past three weeks and I’m pretty tired.

He cannot use his right hand so I have to help him washing, cutting food, writing…

Healthy pumpkin and ricotta savoury cakes.

Healthy pumpkin and ricotta savoury cakes.

I usually start my posts writing the Italian one, not today as today I’m writing for a special occasion, the first #IFBCX recipe exchange.

What is IFBCX?

It’s the official hashtag for International Food Blogger Cooperative Facebook Group.

A place where food bloggers from all over the world can cooperate, learn, share.

To know better each other I suggested a recipe exchange similar to the one I usually do with Bloggalline ( Italian food bloggers group).

Many joined it, even if not so many I’m used to with Bloggalline, I’m so happy and I had the chance to surf a very beautiful blog, Dani’s cookings, written by Daniela from Sofia, Bulgaria.

Pinza bolognese, traditional bolognese cake with jam.

Pinza bolognese, traditional bolognese cake with jam.

I’m really pleased to introduce you this cake, “ pinza bolognese“, this is my dad’s favourite dessert, is really simple and cheap, it comes from a very old tradition (first quote about this cake was in 1644).

In Italy we have a special name for this kind of cakes: “torte da credenza”.

It means “cupboard cakes” and includes all the cakes which last for days without the need of a refrigerator; it means cakes with no creams or custards, unmoist plum- cakes and bundts, ring shaped cakes.

Contrada dei nobili, Santarcangelo di Romagna, review.

Contrada dei nobili, Santarcangelo di Romagna, review.

A long time passed since my last restaurant review.

This is mainly because the new restaurants I visited since then didn’t catch my attention and my approval, not enough to be postd here.

This is what I was thinking about last night while I was going to one of my favourite places around and…

Oh I’ve never spoke of it, la Contrada dei Nobili!

Such a shame.

Kale chips ( or crunchy bat’s wings for Halloween).

kale chips

I know, kale chips are a thing at least since 2012, there is no vegan/ healthy/ fitness blog without this recipe on.

Kale is not a common cabbage at home, my mum did these chips for the first time some weeks ago and we all loved them.

I, so, arrive late, really late but I think they could be a great ” scary” alternative for you Halloween party as they pretty remember of bat’s wings.

We all know on 31th October every adult and every child eats a bunch of sweet and savoury junkies, giving a different treats could be a nice idea for the most food upstanding people, intolerants, vegetarians or vegans.

Gnudi toscani, Tuscan ricotta cheese and spinach dumplings.

Gnudi toscani, Tuscan ricotta cheese and spinach dumplings.

Back again with a recipe, as I told you I have some many new recipes to post I have the problem to decide what comes first.

But why should I decide and not you?

So I throw a survey on my Facebook page, I did it on saturday and so many joined.

It was a simply photo, I just asked to comment with a number:

All the recipes had their own fans but the number four won everything: they are “gnudi” vegetarian dumplings from Tuscany made of spinach and ricotta cheese.

Cuttlefish and peas with tomato sauce.

 

After many months the Bloggalline recipe exchange is back, as usual I have to say it’s an exchange made between Italian bloggers so you may not be interested into blogs writen in Italian but as usual I share with you the recipe I’ve chosen from my paired fellow blogger.

This month I’m paired with Chiara, she comes from Trentino but she is now based in Romagna so we share a lot and we also met in the past during a foodphotography class.

She has a lot of recipes from Austria/ Germany and Trentino on her blog, recipes I usually love a lot so I was almost sure about choosing one of them but then I saw the recipe of cuttlefish and peas in tomato sauce and I changed my mind in a flash.

Devil’s food cake, the perfect chocolate cake.

Devil's food cake

I’m on a diet and I keep posting dessert.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence.

Truth is I had the chance to make a couple of nice cakes because some weeks ago it was my birthday and I celebrated it with the family.

I also had the possibility to take nice (but not perfect) pics of some other recipes you’ll see soon on blog; I have material to work on, WOOT WOOT!!

I post this great recipe now because I wanted to write something about Halloween parties and recipes: it’s that time of the year and I love Halloween so much!!
