Double layer pumpkin cheesecake

To finish this year pumpkin season with a style I decided to make a pumpkin cheesecake. I’m not so much a cheesecake person in terms of cooking cheesecakes, but I love to eat them 🙂 Hard to believe, but it was the second cheesecake I had ever done in my life and the first cheesecake I’ve baked this year. No need to say that I was looking for something very exceptional. Recently I’ve received a pumpkin cake spice all the way from New York and I was so excited to use it. We don’t have it on sale here in Slovakia and it’s amazing that I have it on my shelf with spices now. ( 🇸🇰 slovenský preklad nájdete za anglickým textom)

Sourdough apple twist

After baking so many varieties of bread (and being excited about even more varieties I want to try) I was curious when I fond the recipe of some sweat sourdough baking that I would like to try:) This dough is absolutely amazing! The original recipe calls for pumpkin purée filling which I had already tried, but then I decided to try it with apples and it was even more exciting. I think that you can supplement apple/pumpkin purée with any kind of fruit purée you like. Also fillings like sesame or poppy seeds work nice. (🇸🇰 slovenský preklad nájdete za anglickým textom).

Greetings from Nová Baňa: homemade Bún bò nam bô recipe

Once I was told that I didn’t share cool recipes here. I asked, what kind of recipes could be considered as “cool” and got the answer “you have to share the recipe of homemade Bún bò nam bô”. Well, here is this recipe, am I cool now? If you decide to cook it, I have just one advice: never cook it yourself, as all this cutting work takes pretty much time and it’s much more fun to share these tasks with a company of friends. So invite your tribe and make “the Bún bò Nam bô” night 🙂 (🇸🇰 slovenský preklad nájdete za anglickým textom).

Marinated shark steaks

A fish dish for a change. Many of you asked if I am vegetarian because I mostly post vegetarian recipes here. No, I am not, just meat is not my biggest priority in the kitchen now and that’s why I am more focused on other dishes. However, fish is always a good idea, especially boneless shark stakes. The recipe is so simple 🙂 (🇸🇰 slovenský preklad nájdete za anglickým textom).

Roasted red pepper soup with cauliflower

I haven’t posted any recipes for more than a month and a half and it will not be changed soon for a number of reasons. The main and the most important one is: I’m going to cook and to shoot recipes for a new cook book project I’m involved to. It’s exciting but also very time consuming, especially considering that I’m going to make 2 recipes per week and also I have to keep doing my usual work. Well, it’ll be a challenge, but I still hope to find some time to update this page too. Before cookbook madness hasn’t started, I want to share a brilliant roasted pepper soup recipe. It’s surprising, but I’ve tried it only this summer for the first time, where was it hidden before?

Rhubarb, almonds and pears pie

Red rhubarb is finally at the season so I can bake one of the pies I have been thinking about since last summer.
A few comments before I share the recipe. It may be the simplest recipe I shared here, so don’t hesitate to cook it even if you are not an experienced baker. Then, it’s hard to define exact measurements as if you prefer, for example, more almonds, you can use more almonds and no one will judge you.
And also: you don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen cutting rhubarb into a pattern, just do it in the way you like. (🇸🇰 slovenský preklad nájdete za anglickým textom).

Garlic scapes cream soup

Last Saturday I had a short date with my childhood harvesting cherries from a tree in Zahorska Bystrica garden. Well, I’m glad  to say that I’m still good in it 🙂 I also noticed that garlic scapes have fully grown and it’s the highest time to harvest them too. It’s not a product from my childhood, but I was excited to cook it. I didn’t read any recipes, just took everything I found in the fridge that could  match garlic scapes and cooked a cream soup. Here is a recipe (🇸🇰 slovenský preklad nájdete za anglickým textom).
