.: I don’t need no doctor

Hard times, we all know. Stiamo in casa, speriamo, incrociamo le dita. We cross fingers, we stay home, we hope for the better. Speriamo non ci serva un dottore. Allora… mele.

150 gr sugar – zucchero
2 eggs – uova
200 gr flour – farina
baking powder – lievito per dolci
milk – latte
butter – burro
mele

oven – cottura 180°C around 30 minutes

Cut the apples in slices. You can wet them in lemon juice or in some cake liqueur (in Italy we often use Sassolino)

Mix sugar and eggs. Add flour, baking powder and a bit of milk if you feel it’s getting too thick. Then oil your pan with butter, put the dough inside, decorate with the apple slices and put some small pieces of butter on top. Oven will do the rest… a humble pie to keep doctors away

.: Get it while you can

Yes, it was good. Maybe it wasn’t perfect and I could have baked it a little more. But.. as you can see… nobody complained. Instead, they got it while they could.

In this world, if you read the papers, darling,
You know everybody’s fighting with each other.
You got no one you can count on, dear,
Not even your own brother.
So if someone comes along,
He gonna give you love and affection,

I’d say get it while you can, yeah,
Honey, get it while you can, yeah,
Honey, grab it while you can,
Don’t you turn your back on love, no, no, no.

When you’re loving somebody, baby,
You’re taking a gamble against some sorrow.
But who knows, baby,
‘Cause we may not be here tomorrow.
And if anybody comes along,
He gonna give you love and affection,

I’d say get it while you can, yeah!
Honey, grab it when you’re gonna need it!
Yeah hey, hold it while you can,
Don’t you turn your sweet back on love,
No no no, no no no no no!

Ah! Once I had me a man,
But I didn’t know enough at the time
To count my blessings, no no,
But I wish he could see me crying today,
‘Cause his love don’t feel to listen.
And if anybody comes along,
He gonna give me love and affection,
Yeah, hey!, Hey! Yeah! Hey!

Get it while you can, yeah!
Honey, get it while you can, yeah!
Honey, get it while you can,
Don’t you turn your back on love,
No no no, no no no no.

Get it while you can, yeah!
Honey, grab it while you can, yeah!
I said, hold on to that man, love,
Hold on to that man whole,
Yeah, get it, want it, need it,
Get it, get it, hold it, need it, want it,
Get it, need it, want it, hold it,
Get it, squeeze it, love it, touch it,
Use it, need it, want it, get it,
Need it, want it, hold it,

Yeah hey, get it while you can, baby,
Yeah hey, get it while you can,
Honey, don’t you go and turn your sweet back on love,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Era buona… come una canzone di Janis 🙂

Ok cuocetela 5 minuti in più, però è buonissima anche così… e poi io l’ho riscaldata una seconda volta prima di servirla: in forno a 50°C per pochi minuti.

.: Maybe

Maybe
Oh if I could pray and I try, dear
You might come back home, home to me
Maybe
Whoa, if I could ever hold your little hand
Oh you might understand
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe dear
I guess I might have done something wrong
Honey I’d be glad to admit it
Oh, come on home to me!
Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe yeah
Well I know that it just doesn’t ever seem to matter, baby
Oh honey, when I go out or what I’m trying to do
Can’t you see I’m still left here
And I’m holding on in needing you
Please, please, please, please
Oh won’t you reconsider babe
Now come on, I said come back
Won’t you come back to me!
Maybe dear, oh maybe, maybe, maybe
Let me help you show me how
Honey, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah
Ooh!

Avrei potuto scegliere anche “Get it while you can”… e forse la troverete in qualche altro post, perché ultimamente mi sono (re)innamorata di Janis e sono nel mood…

Comunque il succo è che ancora non ho tagliato una fetta, e quindi non so… maybe the cake is good, maybe not… I don’t know yet, but….. ma probabilmente sarà squisita, perché ho fatto la prova dello stecchino prima di toglierla dal forno.. eh eh… in ogni caso vi regalo la ricetta di questa delizia: torta di mele con ricotta, mascarpone e noci, yes apple pie with ricotta, mascarpone and nuts, here is the recipe

250 gr di ricotta
250 gr di mascarpone
200 gr di zucchero (sugar)
250 gr di farina (flour)
1 bustina di lievito (baking powder)
3 uova
10 noci (nuts)
liquore per dolci o limone (liqueur for cakes or lemon juice)

Riscaldate il forno a 180°C e tagliate le mele a fettine, bagnandole con liquore per dolci o soltanto limone se non volete mettere alcool.
Montate gli albumi a neve (questo è un optional), poi unite la ricotta e lo zucchero, mescolando bene. Unite poi i tuorli e il mascarpone; poi le noci tritate e la farina.
Versate tutto in una tortiera imburata e infarinata. Guarnite con le fette di mela e mettete qualche fiocco di burro sopra.
Cuocete a 180°C per circa 50 minuti. Dopo 40 minuti controllate infilando uno stecchino, che deve uscire asciutto *_*

Warm your oven to 180°C and cut the apples in slices, then let them in some liqueur or just lemon juice if you do not want alcohol in it.
Whip the eggs white stiff (this is optional), then add the ricotta and the sugar, mix it well.
Then add the egg yolks, the mascarpone, the grinded nuts and the flour.
Pour everything in a baking pan after putting some butter and a veil of flour on the inner surface.
Decorate with the apple slices on top and put some flakes of butter here and there on top.
Bake at 180°C for abot 50 minutes. After 40 minutes try and insert a toothpick and see if it comes out dry *_*

Maybe… I’ll tell you how good it is… maybe not
