Daring Bakers' April 2012 Challenge - Nazook -

Our April 2012 Daring Bakers host was Jason from DailyCondor. Jason challenged us to make Nazook and/or Armenian Nutmeg cake. I chose to make Nazook - Armenian pastry -. I did not make Nutmeg Cake, because I am not a fan of nutmeg in cake :( I enjoyed  making nazook. This challenge is so fun to make. I had a lot of choice for the filling - apple, chocolate....- I prepared traditional nazook with sugar filling.   One Saturday I decided to make Nazook with my son. I prepared the pastry dough, put it in the fridge for... [Lire la suite]

Twelve Mini Quiches

Twelve mini quiches for a perfect dinner. I love quiche, any quiche with bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes or salmon, quiche with spinach, zucchini or broccoli.....

Green Paella

Try this fabulous vegetarian paella! It's so good! It's a way to introduce more vegetables for my kids. This dish is really healthy. I could add more vegetables : fresh spinach.... I could also garnish this dish with 1 dried red chili pepper (crumbled)-just before to serve-, but I am sure if I did it, my kids would not eat. And would said, "oh no mom it's too spicy!" :( I used ground turmeric, instead safran. Turmeric is an alternative to the far more expensive saffron spice. The ground turmeric colored so well the rice. ... [Lire la suite]
