Doing something different today than paper, inks and stamps! It's still being creative but with different ingredients!
I have developed a love for Cookery - that is a miracle! Never been drawn to this before. Jamie Oliver is my favorite chef and I watch him and take notes when I can. He thinks and cooks in such a logical way - refreshing! DH and the boys are loving it.
This is a recipe I make at request as it is very popular now in our house, from Jamie Oliver.
A cheesecake dessert.
To tell you quickly how its made:
Crush a handful of hazelnuts and warm in pan - add 50gr butter, when melted, add 8 ginger cookies which have been smashed. This is the bottom which goes in four glasses.
Add a reasonable layer of lemon curd.
Stir a tablespoon of icing sugar in 500 ml crème fraich (sour cream), add 5 drops of vanilla essence or use a teaspoon of vanilla paste.
Add on top of lemon curd. Use a tin of pears (optional) which you add to form layers with the crème fraich.
With a sharp knife pulling towards you - shave off chocolate flakes from a bar of chocolate and put on top to garnish. Thats it! Put in the fridge to set.
(sorry I don't know the weights and measures in any other language, so you will have to take a rough guess by looking at the photo if you might be interested!)
There is a story behind these glasses. My DH, as do my sons, love beer. But the beer glasses kept getting broken and it was time to replenish our stock. There was a Garage sale going in the town next to us, so we decided to go take a look one Sunday. René found two boxes of beautiful beer glasses, for just ten euros! I use this box for my desserts as I love the shape, they taste just that little bit better in a real glass like this :)
If anyone gets inspired to make a card using the photograph with the four glasses on a tray, first one will receive the above shown stamp from Hero Arts called Cut Out Flower.
