    Mini Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes-crop-vert

    Who said cupcakes should only be served as a dessert with chocolate, vanilla and some other sweet ingredients? Well, they make for a perfect appetizer as well if you combine the ingredients in the right way.
    Take for example, these chicken pot pie cupcakes, presented by Heather: many of us are a sucker for chicken pot pie as this is a real comfort food, and the fact that with only few ingredients and few time you can make an amazing appetizer makes you wanna try them even more.
    I have done them for New Year’s eve party and everyone enjoyed every bite of them! :D

    Bon appetite!

Avocado baked with an egg

Avocado baked with an egg

 

There is always an easy way to have a healthy, yet delicious meal, and avocado baked with an egg is one of these.
This breakfast looks like one you will get in a 5 starts hotel :) So why not enjoy a 5 stars breakfast right in your kitchen? :)
You will need few ingredients (1 avocado, 2 eggs, sausages, 2 slices of bread, cuckooflower, salt and pepper).
What I also like about this recipe is the fact that cuckooflower is used as one of the ingredients and how fun and colorful it looks.

Since I am a big fan of avocados, and I love how this recipe looks and sounds, I must try this as soon as possible. So for my next brunch I know what I am going to cook.
Such a brilliant idea!!

Pumpkin and sage soup

Roasted-Pumpkin-Sage-Soup

For me October is the pumpkin month. Maybe this is due to the approaching Halloween holiday.
So I thought to share some pumpkin based recipe…maybe you will find inspiration for the Halloween dinner party.

Not only that the pumpkin has a unique taste that work wonderful in soups, main courses of desserts, but also it is wonderful vegetable: full in beta-carotene, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C and E, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and fiber.
Due to the fact that is a seasonal vegetable (found in fall and winter) I say we cook it in as many way as we can in this period.

I will start with a soup recipe, easy and delicious: Pumpkin and sage soup

You will need:

  • 1,5 kg of pumpkin, pealed and with no seeds
  • 1,5 l of vegetable soup
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped sage
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 chopped onions
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • a few chopped strands of chives
  • black pepper

The recipe is easy and it will be done in almost an hour:

  1. Start by melting the oil and the butter in a heat resistant pan. Then add the sage and the onion and saute them for almost 15 minutes, until they soften.
  2. Now is time to add the pumpkin and stir continuously for 5 minutes. After these 5 minutes will pass, add the honey and the vegetable soup and and boil everything until the pumpkin is soften.
  3. Leave the soup to cool for a while then pass it in a blender. Add salt and some vegetable soup or water, if the cream is to thick.

Before you serve it reheat it. You can garnish it with some black pepper and chives.
For a much interesting serving you can choose to serve it in the pumpkin instead of a classic plate.

Enjoy!
