    This is my sisters recipe for Oreshki, she is a really good baker (Makes the best Pyana Vishnya Cake, I got to post it one day).
    So we came over to her house and we ate whole lot and took some home. It’s perfect for me because if I had them at home it would be me and my older son eating most of them (check him out in picture). I completely have no self-control when it comes to bakes...

    An idea for this dessert came from one of the foodnetwork magazine. Besides pinterest, instagram and bloggers, I often look trough magazines for food ideas.

    This little treat has everything I love, a nice strong shot of coffee, ice cream, hazelnuts and topped with dark chocolate. After having affogato I always get a nice kick of energy.

    Updated March 11, 2013.

    I love baked goodies. This is my go to recipe when I am trying to eat a bit healthier. Not that I am suggesting this as a healthy dish.

    Oatmeal cookies are filling and so delicious. I like both versions, butter or applesauce. The ones with butter are more crunchy, while the ones with applesauce are a little chewy.

  • Black Tie Mousse

    Every time we go to Olive Garden I promise myself that I will save space for dessert but nope, never happens. I had horrible chocolate craving, I just wanted to load myself with dark chocolate, and I don’t really have sweet tooth. All my hard work paid off at around 10pm when I was eating this huge slice of cake, it was all worth it. I loved this cake. It does take little more time and has...

    I found this recipe on one of the Russian recipe websites. I always struggled with rolls; they would break and never stay together. This roll is very moist; cake is so soft. Great roll to make when you don’t have much time on your hands.

  • Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

    6 years ago

    Chocolate dipped strawberries may look too complicated to make. The secret to a very easy dipping is to use chocolate melts, not chocolate chips but melts. They are sold in most craft stores or even Walmart. They chocolate runs very smooth and when it hardens its still easy to bite into.

    This is a very common cake in a Slavic kitchen. It has an amazing flavor from the caramel cream, loaded with walnuts and prunes. The cake is very simple to make, if you follow instructions, I promise you it will turn out amazing.
