Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Hey

My pierogi are a variation of these but without yeast and indeed baked not dep fried. I do know a recipe for something similar to the ones you want. Will try and make them next weekend and let you know how they taste.

I will post recipes for baked ones and fingers tomorrow morning on my blog. Hope that's ok

ps. there is a recipe for polish pierogi on my website too but we are not using yeast in those either

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Looks like so many of us have been busy cooking and baking the past few days.

A couple of favourite soups: kaffirlime leaf vegetable soup and Berlin potato soup. Plus, mussels steamed/boiled with chopped parsley.

Thanks, Leni. Ask me for the recipe if you want to make any of them. I only ever make easy stuff; the most ´complicated´ food I make are curries but that´s only due to the great number of ingredients in tiny amounts.

looks so professional.. would you mind sharing the recipe ? I have never ever made it from scratch
Thanks
I used this one:

Don't use one of those huge Jack-o-Lantern pumpkins though, you want to use one of the smaller deep orange pumpkins with the slightly bumpy skin. You can buy them at Coop now.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

I know I have posted cookies before, but I just baked a double batch of dark chocolate/white chocolate chip cookies and they may be my best ever. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. I used multiple dark chocolate bars, cut into all sizes (some chunks, some slivers) and homemade vanilla in the dough.

With over 150 cookies to share, I am not sure what to do with them all... Any takers? Bribes are accepted in all forms.

If any are left on Thursday, they will make a (final) appearance at the Viadukt.

*Someone's* welcome home dinner, which included wild mushroom risotto (chanterelles, holla!), roasted pumpkin with brown sugar and butter, brussels sprouts in red wine balsamic sauce with pecans, and a nice lamb steak just kissed by a hot griddle.

Sarma,

Uncooked ground meat mixed with uncooked rice, onions and spices: salt, pepper, mint, basilico, oregano. Tomato and pepper paste.

Mix in a bowl and roll in Wine leaves. When ready to cook, put in a wok, cover of water with a bit of olive oil and slice of lemon, covert and let cook.

Miam miam... Takes time to prepared and takes no time to eat!

gorgeous. I just posted mine but i made it with cabbage leaves. yours is more dolomadis / doma.

I love curry, this is a potato curry.
I hate waiting for spuds, so I improvised.

Must say, I loved it. Others were less than impressed.

Next time I might just tip a larger in there as well

what is going on in there exactly?

Made semolina cake from the recipe given by Little Polka on this thread (minus the biscuit base and topping). I really like it, thanks. Third pic is with chocolate ganache (comfort food if ever there was any!).
Looks wonderful.

the picture doesn't do it justice, as it is taken with my crappy mobile which is unable to take proper pictures when there is no natural light. in reality the colour was just a bit lighter than the bought ones (in order to achieve exactly the colour and texture of the real ones, one has to use lye and i did not want to)
