In The Mood For

{flowery tea sets for this season's breakfasts}

Last week ended on a very bad note with my cell phone falling into the kitchen sink while full of water  and soap what caused  me to loose hundreds of photos not yet backed up [live and learn - the hardest way] and most worringly all the contacts I had [don't even ask!]. I was bummed and really sad for a few days, but then my mom's birthday on Tuesday somehow kept things on perspective and made me focus my full attention on what really matters. I'm glad it's Friday again, there's another celebration party to attend on sunday, a new episode of GOT to be watched cozily in the comfort of my home, time to work through a stack of new books and indulgent treats on the oven. What are you guys up to this weekend? Wish you a good one! I'm in the mood for...

Spicy Stewed Rabbit

Rabbit only needs a few ingredients to be transformed into a delicious one-pot meal, perfect for fall or winter or for dull weather as this week's forecast  of rain and temperatures dropping. Succulent chunks of rabbit are slowly stewed in a richly flavoured spicy sauce that's perfect to be served with boiled potatoes or vegetables, rice, French fries or, in this case, toasted bread. A delicious hearty dinner for a chilly evening.

  • 1 rabbit
  • 3 onions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 packet of tomato concentrate
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • 5  chilis
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 1/2 a cup white wine
  • 1 cup eater
  • salt
In a pan put the onions  cut in slices and the minced garlic and add the extra virgin olive oil. Let it heat a bit and then add the tomato, the bay leaf, the chilis and season with salt. Stir and let cook for a bit. Add the chopped rabbit and mix it in the sauce. Add the wines and the water and let cook for about 45minutes, until the meat is super soft and tender. Then toast the bread and display it in a plate and serve the rabbit on it.

Baked Condensed Milk Tart & Dark Chocolate Ganache

If you're into a scrumptiously delicious baked treat today, for a special reason or none at all, this is the one! The creamy, flavourful filling contrasting with the crusty puff pastry is a match made in heaven. It tastes amazingly, looks great,  is rather easy and quick and it involves really low cost, which makes it simply irresistible! Not for the weak of heart though! ;)

  • 1 can of bakes condensed milk
  • milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 packet cream
  • 1 dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
