Nutella and Chocolate Chip Wafers

Nutella and Chocolate Chip Wafers

Do you have some Nutella at home?  These wafers are so easy to make and they require only 3 more ingredients: sugar (better if brown), 1 egg and chocolate chips.  No flour required, so they are a great gluten-free option!  They are really crispy and will make everyone happy.  I loved them, but as I…

Melting Moments with Passion fruit Buttercream

Melting Moments with Passion fruit Buttercream

After a very Italian recipe, today I am back with something from my new country.  I have discovered these amazing cookies only recently and I simply adore them.  Melting Moments do really melt in your mouth, the moment you take a bite!  They are similar to shortbread, but they are even more buttery and delicate. …

Brutti ma Buoni

It’s been a while since I have posted one of my Regional Italian recipes, so I think it’s time to publish one.  This is a recipe that is very dear to me, as it is one that we would often make at home when we had some egg whites left over from other recipes.  It…

Troll Cookies

Troll Cookies

Today’s post is about turning a failure into a success story. I had seen some beautiful cookies on Pinterest that looked just like snowballs.  They were covered in icing sugar, which gave the illusion of fresh snow.  So, I had no doubt that I wanted to make them for my daughter’s Frozen party and they…

Coconut Tiramisù in a Jar

Coconut Tiramisù in a Jar

Oh Tiramisù, how much I love thee!  I must admit I have had my share of terrific home-made tiramisù while growing up.  Back then it was mostly the classic coffee flavoured version, and I have always thoroughly enjoyed it.  Then the fruity versions started to appear, mostly made with peaches and strawberries.  I like those too,…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love Chocolate Chip Cookies??  I fell in love with them at 17, when I visited the States for the first time… I had never eaten them before.  Cookies in Italy were different: crunchy and delicious, but different.  The Chocolate Chip Cookies I had in the US were chewy and sugary and oh so…
