.: 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

.: I never dreamt

..I could make a tart with two different kinds of jam. A volte avete due vasetti di marmellata aperti… e così… you can make a double-taste tart

it’s just another rendition of the classic jam tart

250 flour – farina
125 sugar – zucchero
3 yolk + 2 eggwhites – 3 tuorli e 2 bianchi
120 gr butter – burro
baking powder – lievito per dolci
marmelade (plums) – marmellata (prugne)

180°C for 30 minutes

decorate as you like…. cook and serve.. your wicked tart

.: Since I’ve been ‘cooking’ you

This is an old love… una ricetta che non facevo da un sacco di tempo, ma che amo molto…

a classic which I like to manipulate… slightly change… always love: my crostata with mummy’s marmelade

250 flour – farina
125 sugar – zucchero
3 yolk + 2 eggwhites – 3 tuorli e 2 bianchi
120 gr butter – burro
baking powder – lievito per dolci
marmelade (plums) – marmellata (prugne)

180°C for 30 minutes

whip the eggwhites – montate i bianchi a neve, poi mescolate i tuorli, lo zucchero e il burro fuso – then add the yolks, the melted butter and the sugar. Bio eggs !!!

when you have mixed them all, keep a little back to put in on the top later – tenetene un po’ da parte per metterlo sopra la pasta, dopo

tenete anche un po’ di pasta da parte per la decorazione – save some dough for decorating the top – stain the pan with some butter and add some flour on the surface – imburrate e infarinate la teglia, poi stendete la pasta – then lay the dough, put the egg+sugar+butter on it and then the marmelade

have fun with the decoration, then put it in the oven: 180°C for 30 minutes and you’ll have this old-love-delicious-tart

since I’ve been loving it….

.: Either way I win

When it’s saturday night and you don’t feel like goin’ out, you may want to treat yourself with just the classic comfort food… and I did it.

Tenderloin and fries… the simplest cuddle you can give to yourself… you’ll never change..this truth

and what else ?… a perfect home made tiramisù…

Either way I win… don’t you think so ?
