Chinese Chicken Drumsticks

My ideas for the dinner party often come too late, so I'm always in a hurry. This time, believe it or not, I have prepared the recipes a week before for this event. Pork is on the menu every time we meet with my family and I needed a little chicken touch. :-) This recipe is well known all over the world but as I do with all my recipes I've changed it a bit. :-) Now this recipe is more like Rosvitha's chinese chicken drumsticks.

Mac and cheese (with a little sprinkle of bacon)

There is so many varieties of this dish so I bring you one of mine. Of course, the tastiest one. :-) You need time just for cooking the macaronis or pasta (any sort you like) and in the meanwhile prepare the sauce. This is a quick lunch and the lunch that you can bring to work. The best thing is that you know exactly what it consists of. The others will be jealous and will ask for the recipe from you. Let this recipe be the trigger to new ideas for this meal, so give your own recipe!

Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Mmm, so sticky and sweet irresistible cinnamon rolls. When they came out of the oven, the kitchen was already filled with cinnamon aroma and my son couldn't resist so he took one roll and started eating it right away. Don't ask me how he looked like! :-) Well, I love those roll muffins just like the ones with jam or nutella or my favorite pecan rolls. I won't tell you that it's easy to make, just follow the steps and treat yourself with these wonderful muffin bites!

Flourless Cake Bars

Do you like nuts and chocolate combination in cakes? Off course! Who doesn't? I have made these bars for New Years Eve...just to put something sweet and delicious on the table. It came out like the best cake ever. A little bit chewy and melts quickly like a winter ice cream, leaving pecans to boost your energy up. It's not too complicated to make but it's worth every minute of your time.

Bundt Cake - Panettone

I really like the combination of chocolate, nuts and dried fruits. In this cake, I have found that perfect mixture coated with shiny chocolate glaze. Sometimes, this cake is called Panettone cake or Gugelhupf cake, depends of the origin you're coming from. Perfectly moist, melts in your mouth and leaves small delicious parts to chew with pleasure. I have often read in recipes that all those fruits must be chopped roughly, but if you chop them finely, tastes combine better so the pleasure is complete. I have to admit that this is a simple cake to make if you have enough time for chopping all those fruits, chocolate and nuts you have prepared. So, start chopping and bake this cake to indulge yourself.

St.Lucia Buns - Saffron Buns and Cheesy Buns

With these buns I would be dragging a parallel between cultures. In my area, Lucia buns are called Luca buns and more like without saffron... :-) We use cheese and salt instead, and they have a different meaning. Those eye shaped Lucia buns are sweet and all about illuminating the day which is the shortest day in the year. The other ones are salty and served to relatives - for the living and for those who passed away. The nickel in the bun brings the richer upcoming year for the one who finds it.

Bell Pepper Peperonata

If you adore peppers just as I do, you will love this extra simple, a few ingredient dish. This is only a basic peperonata which can be enriched with a lot of seasoning or by adding onions, garlic, eggplant or 1-2 eggs to make a delicious and light meal. If you like it chili, use one tiny chili pepper to indulge yourself. Serving this delicious meal comes with mood... I was in a mood for chicken nuggets in a shape of a dinosaur. My son was so happy - for the dinosaurs - off course! :-)
