Mama Pia Cake

Try this cake. It's so wonderfully delicious!

This is my favorite salsa and a must whenever I make Mexican food or want to snack on tortilla chips.

Perfect for any Mexican meal! Use this as a filling for burritos and tacos or as a topping for nachos.

Zen background in display frame

Inspired by a page sent to us by our dear friend Susi Niederberger I set out to rework the display frame. The goal was to use vertical sticks, loosely placed, and randomly placed horizontal sticks to create a zen-like backdrop, on which to display just a few select photos.

A plate with meringues

This is the first time ever that I successfully baked meringues. The trick is to bake them for a long time in low heat. I usually bake everything on 400 F. No wonder the meringues looked good from the outside but fell right into themselves when I took them out of the oven. This time around they were in the oven for 40 minutes on 300 F and were perfect!

Image of a bowl with Roasted Yams Summer Salad

This is a potato salad I love. I am not a potato salad person, but I had a big potato and yams I had to use up. Since it was a very nice and warm summer day I decided to try out a new recipe which I found in Barbara Kingsolver book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle". Off course, because it is me, I can't let a recipe stand how it is, I had to change it. It is very yummy!

The blackberry bushes growing along the fence of my apartment complex are overflowing with ripe berries, so I froze half of the ones I picked, intending to keep them for use in smoothies and/or berry pies/crumbles in the fall. But when craving a cold dessert on a hot evening, I decided to try making a sorbet out of them. It was absolutely delicious!
