Little Pastry Appetizer with Funghi Porcini & Truffles

I can’t believe I haven’t been preparing this so much earlier. One of the most simple yet delicious appetizers that are prepared in no time! You only need a square sheet of puff pastry and a spread of your choice (I happened to have Funghi Porcini & truffles spread in the house). And you are just about done. Will definitely repeat with a artichoke spread or just a pesto with cheese sprinkled on top…

This is how you do it:

Yellow & Green Stuffed Round Zucchini

The summer is finally here and next to bbq-ing nearly every day (or eating a delicious and light salad), sometimes a little variation is needed. These round zucchinis are a fun alternative to the lengthy ones I usually buy. But when I stumbled upon these beauties, I wanted to give them a try. And here goes…

Burrata with Fresh Peaches & Pine Nuts

With the warm temperatures I always enjoy eating a cool and light dinner (or starter). I had a similar dish at an invitation of friends and recreated it with a little twist! This fruity, nutty mixture with the creaminess of the Burrata is a delight for your taste buds. Hope you like it as much as I did! Hmmmm….

Pasta with Pesto Rosso

Pasta is just one of the best inventions ever. Just plain with butter and parmesan cheese or with all the variations of sauces that are possible. This Pesto Rosso is a very nice alternative to the typical “normal” pesto Genovese. It’s great as a dip with some crackers or grissini, as well as on pasta. Simple to make and ideal to store for a few days in the fridge.

Potato & Bacon Roses

The BBQ Season has finally started and our BBQ space is mostly occupied with meat in some sort. So I actually like preparing the sides in the oven. And these beautiful potato & bacon roses make a great side dish – not only tasty, but they beautify the table too. They are quite simple to make, so give them a try!

Asparagus Tonnato

Not sure about you, but I for myself love Vitello Tonnato. And this adapted version is delightful. Fairly light (mixing cream cheese with mayonnaise) and perfect to have as variation for the asparagus season. Did you know that white and green asparagus have the same origin, just one sees the sunlight and the other doesn’t? Crazy nature. But delicious in any case!

Prosciutto, Mozzarella & Sun-dried Tomato Appetizer Skewers

I am a great fan of mozzarella, tomato and basil (and avocado ideally), but wanted to prepare something a little different as an appetizer. Instead of fresh tomatoes I used sun-dried ones and added a slice of prosciutto last. A great taste explosion in your mouth, easy to prepare and just delicious. Give it a try!
