Espresso and Frangelico Mousse  

Espresso and Frangelico Mousse

I know I have said this before, but puddings and cream based desserts like mousse are my favourite.  I would always pick them over cake or cupcakes.  And you all know how much I love espresso… I could easily have 3 a day!!  So, this Espresso and Frangelico Mousse is just up my alley.  Frangelico…

Irish Coffee

Irish Coffee

As Paddy’s Day is fast approaching, I thought of sharing a classic recipe: Irish coffee.  You know I love my coffee and I generally have espresso (better yet, macchiato), but on a cold winter’s evening, I love to indulge with something more.  Irish coffee is simply delicious and very easy to make.  It is the…

Coffee and Vanilla Liqueur

COFFEE AND VANILLA LIQUEUR

Like every year, I made some edible gifts to give my friends for Christmas.  Last year, I had successfully made some Bailey’s Irish Cream, so this time I wanted to experiment with other flavoured liqueurs.  I love Kahlua, so I thought I would try that.  I found lots of recipes and in the end I…

GELATINA DI CAFFÈ – COFFEE JELLO

I have been blogging for almost 3 years now and when I look back at all the the things I learnt, I almost can’t believe it.  I am talking about cooking techniques and also about computer skills and photography!  But what I am the most grateful for are the friendships I made along the way. …

Coffee and Kahlua Gelato

COFFEE AND KAHLUA GELATO

Today’s recipe is a spin off of my Bailey’s Ice cream.  Actually, I wanted to make Bailey’s Ice cream and got all the ingredients for it… until I realised I did not have enough Baileys!  Aaargh!  That’s when I looked inside my liquor cabinet and saw Kahlua!  Mmmmm I love coffee gelato, it is actually…

CHOCOLATE, ESPRESSO AND CHILLI MOUSSE

Have you already decided what to serve to your loved one tomorrow?  If you haven’t, or are still undecided, look no further.  I think I may have the answer for that, at least as far as dessert goes.  I have always wanted to try and make something with chocolate and chilli… I know, it sounds…

GRANITA AL CAFFÈ CON PANNA

I am very excited about sharing today’s Regional Italian recipe.  You can easily guess that this week’s region is Sicily… granite (plural for granita) are the quintessential Sicilian breakfast, especially in summer.  There are so many flavours, it is hard to choose only one when you sit at one of the local cafés… my favourite…

ICED ESPRESSO

I love coffee… well, I am addicted to coffee.  Not to the brewed coffee but to espresso.  I restrict myself to no more than 2 a day, but I could drink so much more.  Only the smell of a freshly brewed espresso in the morning sets the day in the right direction.  You know what…

“CAT’S TONGUES” BISCUITS – LINGUE DI GATTO

These biscuits are a classic of Italian cuisine.  Every pastry shop sells them and they are very often served with ice cream.  Their name literally means “cat’s tongues” as their shape and size resemble a cat’s tongue.  I simply love them… they are thin and crispy and the aroma that they create while baking takes…
