― Oscar Wilde

So let’s see my artwork for today: yobimé = yogurt-biscotti-mele (yogurt-biscuits-apples)


120 gr flour (manitoba) – farina
30-40 gr butter – burro
80 gr vanilla yogurt – yogurt alla vaniglia
40 gr sugar – zucchero
1 apple – 1 mela
baking powder – lievito istantaneo per dolci
Oven time – Cottura: 180°C per 20-25 minuti
Preparation Time/Tempo: 20-30 minutes

First: chop the apple in small pieces. Fate la mela in piccoli pezzi. La verità è che avevo una mela che dovevo consumare, e mi sono inventata la ricetta 😀 Ma fidatevi: sono buonissimi.

Then melt the butter – sciogliete il burro – and blend everything, until it’s a soft-but-compact dough. – Mescolate tutto fino ad ottenere un impasto soffice ma consistente. Modellatelo con uno stampino. – Shape it with a small mould or whatever you like.

Maybe I should have closed them up over the apple pieces, but they come out good anyway. Potete richiuderli sopra le mele… a piacere

Prima di metterli in forno, mettete un fiocco di burro sopra ogni tortina. Put a flake of butter on each one before cooking.

Did you know that George Lucas refused to direct Hair ? And what about Madonna and Bruce Springsteen out of the casting ? Ok, it was 1979 and I guess it was a challenge for Forman, to make this movie, when the hippy spirit was already gone. But Hair remains a cult movie, and the main theme is also something everybody knows

..although we have to recall who was singing it in the musical:

you can serve tea or coffee and they’ll be perfect. Also for breakfast.
