I finally had a chance to go to the woods and find some branches to make this little decoration I was planning for, hope you like it :)

Tiramisu muffins

Not too sweet, not too ordinary, just yummy! I will surely do them again soon!

Recipe from here:

For 10-12 muffins:
  • 110 g butter
  • 110 g  brown sugar
  • 110 g flower
  • half of tea spoon of baking powder
  • half of tea spoon of baking soda
  • 1 spoon of cacao
  • 2,5 tea spoons of instant coffee (in powder)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 spoon of Amaretto
All ingredients should be in room temperature. Flower, baking powder, soda and cacao put together in a bowl.
Whip the butter in the mixer until it becomes fluffy. Add sugar and keep mixing. Add both eggs, one by one, mixing until all ingredients combine. Add coffee and keep mixing.
To that, add all the dry ingredients that you prepared before and steer it with a spoon.
Put the dough into the muffin forms, bake 20-30 min in  180ºC.

The cream on top I did in other way than in the original recipe. I simply created same cream that I do for tiramisu dessert:
  • put 4 big spoons of mascarpone into a bowl
  •  mix it together with 1 egg yellow and some sugar (as per your taste)
  • whip one egg white separately, and when it becomes stiff, add it to the rest of the cream, steering delicately

Statement piece

How do you like my new painting? 
Believe me, I know it is of considerable size but I could not resist it as I was hoping the colours will play really nicely with the rest of the room.

And how I experienced its considerable size is that I had to wait for it for over a month as no car in the family was big enough for the painting to fit!

New start?

...and a new favourite painting!

I have been recently looking at Saatchi online and this painting I liked so much that I have had this page opened for three days now in the browser :) Once I share here - I guess I can close the browser! The painting is from artist called Zek who lives in Izmir in Turkey. This just one more person that I like and admire that lives in that city (big hug, Hayrushie!)
