This year I would like to focus more on the ingredients and recipes of my place, Bologna, and surroundings.
As you may know my city offers a lot speaking of good food and I want to share it, especially the less known preparations like the one I am posting today.
If you make a Cookie Advent Calendar you cannot miss the most iconic Christmas cookie recipe: gingerbreads!
I’ve never made them before, I’m not fond of spices but they really worth a try!
Of course web is packed with gingerbread recipes but I used the one from my favourite British baker, Paul Hollywood!
Hello my dear readers and welcome to my crazy project: a cookie recipes Advent Calendar!
Why is this so crazy?
Because I had to make 25 different kind of cookies, take 25 different pictures, write 25 Italian posts and 25 English posts.
It’s a lot of work, trust me!
We are starting another week of quarantine.
This time we will be closed too and we will not allowed to even have a walk around alone if not very near home.
It will be very, very hars and hard because hubby and son aren’t made to be alone without anything to do but we will manage, I am sure.
I cooked and baked a lot in the past days but, as we and hubby share the laptop, I had no chance to keep it long enough to write a double post.
I am trying to do it now, I start with the recipe of a lovely, easy, tasty cake cooked bain marie which make the cake very moist.
It comes from this book:
I don’t own this, I would like to buy it but Amazon ( and it’s a good thing!) don’t send anything which is not ” vital” ( from pantry to office supplies or cellphone chargers) anymore.
I will buy it when all this will be over.
So how do I reached this recipe?
We are back from holidays and we yet don’t feel like we have ever been.
Lot of work, lot of rush; after month without a home fitness chance I decided to give in with gym: five days a week of course or it doesn’t work.
I AM DEAD.
I didin’t have the chance to cook a lot after our return, only a dessert for a family meal last sunday.
I took the recipe from a magazine and it turned out… AWFUL.
