milk jelly with watermelon and blueberries
b0123934_8202642.jpg

Tons of vanilla icecream left in the freezer? No problem.
Today's dessert is not only easy-making and delicious, also excellent method to consume that gigantic 4L-almost-I-dont't-know-what-to-do icecream bucket!
You can also call this dessert 'panna cotta', I'd think.

[ingredients]
vanilla icecream 400g
skim milk 320g*
gelatine powder 8g**
water
your favorite fruits

[preparation]
1. Combine vanilla icecream and skim milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, until icecream melts into the warm cream. Do not boil.
2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together hot water and gelatin, whisking until gelatin dissolves.
3. Whisk gelatin mixture into cream mixture until thoroughly combined.
4. Remove from the heat and pour into ramekins or glasses. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight until set. Top with your favorite fruits. Serve.


* You can add more or reduce. More you added, more sweetness went out.
**8g is a minimum amount to set jelly. If you prefer harder jelly, add some more gelatine.

saffron and basil breadsticks
b0123934_9305835.jpg

Since I found out that the saffron was used for these breadsticks, I'd have loved to try out this recipe. I had a small cylinder of saffron for a long time, which I bought last year, and had little chance to use them since then. Do I have other ingredients, like a uh....fresh basil? Yes, it's in the pot(without withering unusually, not yet at least). Perfect!

These were easy to make and tasty. And saffron's delicate flavour and its colour make these bread so special.
I adopted this recipe from 'Fat-Free Italian Cooking"(author: Anne Sheasby).

granola bars

The hearty and crispy granola bars are always my favorite.
They could be the fast breakfast, or handy for lunch boxes. If you regard these as snack, the chocolate chips or marshmallow can be added for more flavor.

The recipe to be continued......

plain soda bread

I think a soda bread is the answer to make in the busy morning, like today, when running out of bread in the pantry or no mood for pancakes nor cereal, especially if you prepared a delicious jam one day before....

I baked the pain de seigle again. Today I added some buckwheat seeds and millet. I LOVE this kind of hearty bread, the one that contains grain, even if I eat 2 or 3 slices at lunch, I don't feel guilty at all.

vanilla icecream with hazelnut tuiles

The weather forecast says we'll be having a real hot summer this year, but so far so good. Very mild summer to me. But, it's a little bit different story to my husband and two boys, they say the heat makes them worn out and exhausted! Yes, they truly look tired. Ok, how about some cold goodies to refresh yourselves, then ?

My computer was a real headache these days. It took such a long time to open even the first page! Visiting my favorite sites, typing in, uploading the pictures were almost impossible. Apparently it's bugs' doing. I know it's time to get new one, but I'm just waiting till September for some reason. Another 3 more months..... till that time, please behave yourselves, my dear bugs!
