Oh goodness, another puncake recipe

Thank goodness, another pancake recipe!  To make brekkie is one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen all savoury and sweet mixed up, a pinch of this and a pinch of that.. yum yum and so it goes.. Do you like to make pancakes or eat them only ?Have I told you that the first recipe I ever cooked  was pancakes? I remember grabbing one of my dad’s cookbooks a Summer evening  and be like I’m gonna go for this pancakes recipe. Then the whole family was eating a bunch of those little fluffy pancakes I made for the very first time in the back of our yard,  it’s been about eight to night years ago. One time in the kitchen was enough to fall in love with this very special kind of art, at that point I didn’t even know, but here we are now making these…

Ingredients:

  • 2  1/3 Cups flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vailla extract
  • 3 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 pomegranate
  • 2 teaspoons greek honey

To make this darling all you have to do is  mix the flour water and vanilla extract for 5′. Then add a bit of butter in your pan and once heated up  pour one spoon of the mixture (use a round ladle). 1-2 minutes to each side is more than enough. Place in a plate and continue the same prosess. It must make about 10-15 of these. Once ready top with honey, powdered sugar, pomegranate seeds oh! and a good warm coffee.IMG_0053.JPGIMG_0057.JPGIMG_0059.JPG

Quick pizza dinner for friends

Pizza with  friends is like one of the best things evaaa!  Kinda a spontaneous and very quickie dinner for one very special friend.  I love this  light pizza crust so much, so easy, so light, so perfeeecccct. I actually used to go for the very fluffy ones in the past but this has changed the last few months. So, no a big deal just some flour, tomato sauce and… and..let’s see.

Ingredients:

  • 2 2/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • sea salt
  • thym
  • oregano
  • pepper
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons parmezan
  • 3 mozzarella slices or any kind of soft cheese you prefer

The salad is my favourity lettuce and pomegranate salad. Some lettuce, tomatoes  in cubes, pomegranate seeds, vinegar cream, seeds and ta taaa! Oh! not to mention that I also made some crouton from the pizza dough. They were a succsess!! All I did was to make little balls from the leftover pizza dough after I mixed it with some herbs and pepper. Then I poured a tiny bit of olive oil on top of them, place them in baking paper and put them in the oven for 20 minutes to 230 degrees. To help them cook faster cut 1/2 of them in the middle with a knife. # playwithyourfood.

Pizza dough Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl mix the flour and warm water for about 1 minute. Add a pinch of salt, pepper and plenty of herbs. Mix well with your hands and use extra flour for your hands if needed.
  2. Now get your rolling pin and make a thin and light crust. Make sure that your dough is not stiky. If it is try to add a bit of flour on the rolling pin as well.
  3. Put some baking paper on the tray and pour a teaspoon of olive oil. Place the crust and then top with all your ingredients.
  4. There is not a right or wrong way to do this. I only would suggest that you mix the tomato sauce, cream cheese and herbs together and you spread the mixture on top of the dough before adding any other ingredients.

This is a Monday post and this week I want to start with a big “Hello cold, hello rainy days and beatiful fresh air”.  Any of you counting down days for Christmas? Am I in such a hurry? But it’s Christmaaaas  I waited a year and so for it to come back. I’m thinking next week we gonna go Cristmas shopping together, decorate the house and start trying out Cristmas treats and recipes. Can’t wait, can you?

This recipe is so easy that I’m not gonna give you directions below, I’m just gonna talk it throug! Let me know if you prefer it that way / or if you don’t 😋

  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small cucumber
  • dry oregano

To make this darling you need some good, smooth jazz music on and warm coffee on the side. Start with preheating the oven to 250 degrees. Cover your tray with baking paper and add the tomatoes in there. Oh top them with some fresh or dry oregano, it’s worth it. Place in the oven for 15 minutes or so. In a pan put the slices of bread to give them a more crunchy tecture then add the cream cheese, cheese, peal you cucumber aaaand here’s coming the good one! Poached egg! To make your poached eggs do the following: Boil some water in a small pot, once bubbles start showing up remove from the heat.
