.: Probably me

What? you need energy ?… ok… eggs and cheese………

Very simple recipe: mix an egg, grated parmigiano-reggiano, some breadcrumb and more cheese cubes if you like them

then fry and turn…eh eh.. turning is the difficult part

and what about making it perfectly round ?

Well… energy will flow with any shape 🙂

I hate to say it
I hate to say it, but it’s probably me
You’re not the easiest person I ever got to know
And it’s hard for us both to let our feelings show
Some would say I should let you go your way
You’ll only make me cry
If there’s one gal, just one gal
Who’d lay down his life for you and die
It’s hard to say it
I hate to say it, but it’s probably me

.: Time is the enemy #2

The post is long (finger on wheel!), but the recipe is quick. Theme is time. Word pun? uh! La ricetta sarà breve e anche molto buona, ma il post è lungo, quindi… dito sulla rotellina ! This is an invention and I think is great. I loved it! I will call it fritcake. I’ll tell you why below. La chiamerò fritcake.

Do you think you know what time really is ? I do not. I feel Time is the most mysterious and unexplicable thing in the universe. And still it seems to dominate our lives. I would say it is our Master, in the sense that it controls us and it teaches us about the meaning of life. Il Tempo dovrebbe chiamarsi Maestro, perché domina le nostre vite e può insegnarci come trarne il meglio. Il Tempo non aspetta, non può essere rallentato, né controllato, e dovrebbe essere la moneta universale, dato che il suo valore non ha eguali. Look at this video: none of those people, running and  hurrying to their business, is anymore on this planet, and nothing they did could prevent them from passing away. Think about it.

In fact we give much importance to the time we need to cook something. We would love to have something cooked in just a second. Ci piacerebbe avere ogni pietanza pronta in uno schiocco di dita. But, we must consider that cooking itself is a pleasure, and it is something that makes us appreciate more the meal. So it is ok to favour quicker recipes, but remember that taking a bit more time for cooking is not wasting time, but rather gain some pleasant time. Cucinare vuol dire avere il piacere di creare qualcosa di gradevole, e quindi non è tempo sprecato, ma più spesso, tempo impiegato in qualcosa di piacevole e creativo.

Allora, la chiamerò fritcake perché è un mix tra una frittata e un pancake. E non potevo chiamarla omelepancake, no ? Fritcake = frittata (omelette) +pancake.

I didn’t feel like cooking much and I didn’t feel like cooking meat, so: eggs. But I also wanted some sweet taste, so, no classical omelette. Avevo voglia di dolce, quindi…. ingredienti:

1 egg – 1 uovo
yogurt (1 spoon * 1 cucchiaio)
potato flour (1 spoon) – farina di fecola (1 cucchiaio)
grated bread (1 spoon) – pangrattato (1 cucchiaio)
Asiago cheese
cinnamon – cannella
sliced almonds – mandorle a fette (optional)
(sweet) butter – burro

Chop the cheese in small thin slices * tritate il formaggio a fettine piccole e sottili. * Whip the eggwhite * montate il bianco a neve

Blend the yolk with the cinnamon and the yogurt * Mescolate il tuorlo con la cannella e lo yogurt

Add the flour, the grated bread, the cheese and the almonds * Aggiungete la farina, il pangrattato, le scaglie di formaggio e quelle di mandorla. * Finally add the whipped eggwhite * Infine unite il bianco montato a neve

Fry in a pan greased with little butter: be careful, will burn easily * friggete in una padellina con poco burro: attenzione, frigge subito

The result is a fluffy slightly sweet omelette with a soft cheesy heart. I am really happy with it! * otterrete una frittata leggermente dolce, gonfia e con un morbido cuore formaggioso. Sono entusiasta!

And now, for those who wants to be amazed… e ora, se volete deliziarvi con le meraviglie della fisica… l’esperimento delle fenditure è una delle cose più sorprendenti che possiate ammirare, anche se non amate le scienze o la matematica. The double slit experiment is something you might love, even if you are not fond of science or math. And delayed choice quantum eraser it’s even weirder. It’s the magic of the universe and the mystery of Time.

The universe always holds surprises!

.: By chance

By chance I have some baked ham, by chance I have some minced meat, by chance I have some cheese and an egg 😀  Per caso ho del prosciutto cotto, del macinato, formaggio e uova. Cosa posso fare ?

Polpette ! What is different ? I added the baked ham inside

The difficult part is turning them and not burning them

by chance, I made it !

Everybody love to be surprised when things happen by chance, so …

Even when we know it might be a fake or a masquerade, we love it anyway.

And did you know we must thank a motorcycle accident (Bob Dylan 1966) and a honorable discharge (Jimi Hendrix 1962) for This ? Chance.

.: Close to my fire

E’ stata una giornata un po’ pesante. A busy day… and I’m tired. So when you want to cook something easy quick and tasty, you have two choices: either an omelette with extra cheese, or some lemon and ginger chicken.

Ok, you already know both, but this is a suggestion for an easy dinner when you’re tired. I have recently talked about my ginger & lemon chicken, but I will remind you what it’s all about: you just put the chicken pieces in a pan with oil, lemon and ginger, and fry them. I also added some rosemary this time.

Another very quick recipe is omelette. You mix an egg with grated cheese and grated bread, plus you add some pieces of your favourite cheese. I added some Asiago. It looks like a simple omelette

ma quando la tagliate… but when you cut it…

you find a soft heart

This is what you can do… close to your fire


.: Fry and fry again

Non vi sembra di sentire sempre gli stessi suoni ? Over and over again… same sounds… anyway sounds good.

Ingredients: eggs, cheese and various thing. Cooking: fry.

Example 1: frittata con straccetti di salame. Salami omelette

sorry I ate it before taking a pic.

Example 2: zucchini, Asiago cheese, 1 egg,some more parmesan and bread crumble

take a pan and go


Example 3: carrots, zucchini, egg, flour, bread crumble. Frittelle di carote e zucchine

cut vegetables

and if you are good, you will put some salt on them and let them lose their inner water. Se volete fare le cose per bene, mettete del sale grosso e lasciatele perdere l’acqua.. altrimenti vi ritroverete questo pasticcio di olio che bolle…

Comunque sono venute buone lo stesso 😀

“Fritta è buona anche una ciabatta”
