.: What’s this ?

Chocolate, lemon and ginger ? hum…. sounds those kind of weird dark Christmas things….

Well… yes, and it’s good !
Ho provato questo cioccolato Novi con limone e zenzero

be’.. è un po’ dolce per me che abitualmente mangio l’88% di cacao, però… mi piace un sacco. Sapete che ho fatto ? Ho comprato il cioccolato, sempre Novi, al 99% di cacao, e ho messo in bocca un pezzo di 99% e un pezzo di limone e zenzero… mmmm… e ho detto: what’s this ??!

 

.: if it makes you feel good

I know… I missed Christmas. Maybe it was wanted, I’m not sure. But what had made me feel good these days was pizza. Yes pizza again. Looks quite…. ordinary. But look: making pizza on your own can really make you feel good. So I did it once and I did it again.

Made the pasta: it is approx 150 gr of flour, then some water, olive oil, salt and most important the baking.

150 gr di farina – flour (30% manitoba)
lievito di birra – brewer’s yeast
olio evo – extra virgin olive oil
acqua – water
sale – salt

Then you put the tomato with some oil in it, on the pasta and start the cooking in the oven at 200 °C

The overall time is about 30 minutes, so, after 10 minutes or less (you have to experience with your own oven) you take it out and add the mozzarella and the toppings you like.

And this is my outcome

It does make you feel good.

Just the way Carly Rose says when she sings Nina Simone. Well I don’t usually watch X-factor or america’s got talent or things like those, but Carly deserves some of your time. Like my pizza.
