Just before Christmas I wanted to stop by, add a recipe and share some thoughts with you.

Stopping by – a tick.
Adding a recipe – a tick (in a second)
Sharing – in progress :)

Christmas cakes are almost ready. One cheesecake is still in the oven… but almost done.
Not sure how it’s with you but I’m literally surrounded by sweets! How can I say no to them? Well, I can’t. And I don’t want to.

But coming back, I’m here to wish you beautiful Christmas. Full of peace.
I guess that’s what we all need the most nowadays. I’ve noticed so many people wishing peace to each other. We lack it, that’s for sure.
When I look at myself… last six months… I don’t know when it’s passed. I really don’t know. I’m trying not to waste time. To use every single hour, every single minute of the day… and still, something is slipping through my fingers. I can feel it.

Pay attention to little things. Keep your eyes open.
It’s good to see things. It’s better to notice them.
Good to listen. Better to hear.

Have a beautiful time.

Tiramisu

I’ve just realised there is no Classic Tiramisu recipe on Sarenka… What the…
Need to change it, right now!

My Tiramisu is really soaked… And when I’m saying soaked, I really mean it :) That’s the way we like cakes and desserts here in my family :) The cake should be soft, wet and mouth-watering. And that’s how this Tiramisu is :)
I made the cream without adding whipped egg whites. That is why, it was a bit more dense in its consistency. If you want it to be even more creamy and delicate, just add the whipped whites… and that’s all :)

The pictures may look a bit chaotic. It’s because they were taken in a hurry… Tiramisu started disappearing faster than I expected :)

To me, a perfect choice for Father’s Day :)

It’s decided!
We’re changing Sarenka’s profile!
Butcher-like it will be ;)
That would be something, right?

While looking through some recipes on Moje Wypieki, I found information about Dorota’s favourite blog… It made me really curious… That kind of recommendation speaks for itself. I had to check on it!
It turned out that ChilliBite is a really yummy blog.
And the idea of making Chocolate Salami appealed to me the moment I saw it :)
What is more, only after some time did I get to know that this bar is also one of the traditional desserts of Portugal! Isn’t it nice? You know my adoration for this language :)

Well, a real piece of chocolate meat for you :)

It looked so tempting and classy in the pictures… And the combination of coconut and chocolate seemed so perfect… And… Well, everything was for making this cheesecake :)
Indeed, everyone was saying that it was a real taste bingo :) Uff, what a relief ;)
I think that this is the mousse that does the trick. It is so delicate and delicious.

As you can see, my longing for cheesecakes has been growing stronger… So maybe… another one is the nearest future..? :)

3 BIT

Like this popular candy bar. At least the author of the recipe says so :) Personally, I’m not so sure because… I’ve never eaten 3 BIT! :) But if the bar is as good as this cake, no wonder people all over the world like it so much :)

3 BIT cake… Hmmm, what can I say..? It is SWEET! But you know, dulce de leche – sweet, vanilla pudding – sweet and whipped cream… well, it’s not a secret, it’s sweet too :) So the cake is total sweetness :)
And I think I have noticed an interesting thing…I’ve got a complete weakness for cube cakes. All of them I had a chance to make and eat were really really tasty :)

Still in two minds whether to make it or not? Let me tell you another thing – you don’t have to use your oven to make 3 BIT! Now, that is convincing, right? :)

The original recipe you can find here but don’t ask me how long it waited to be made… Because it was too long ;)

Do not ask me how many cookies I’ve made recently… A lot :)

These ones I made… just because :) For unexpected cravings :)
Just out of curiosity, I’ve checked how long it took me to make them. 10 minutes of preparation + 15 minutes of baking. Nice, isn’t it?
I used thick granulated sugar, which gave a nice crispy effect :)
Worth, really worth :)
