My first homemade bread.
I used a random basic bread recipe and twisted it. I substituted 1/2 of the white flour with chickpea flower. I threw in some seeds and nuts like linseeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, grains and baked it.
Honestly, simpler than I thought and more delicious.
My dearest fiend’s bridal party - a surprise boat trip at sunset along the south Bulgarian seaside.
The crew and boat were amazing and took great care of us, a bunch of tipsi wedding guests, maid of honor, mother of the bride, old high-school friends gathering from all over the world. We are sipping wine carefully because of the up-and-down movement of the boat and inevitably, roaring with laughter.
After we arrived back at the dock, the crew served dinner. The food was delicious and felt like home. Simple grilled mackerel fillets, potato salad with fresh dill, parsley, onions and olive oil.
The perl of the dishes is the fresh salad, named by the captain, who happened to be the cook as well, “Sailors’ salad”.
The savor of the salad comes from its methodology of preparation, not its simple ingredients. That, I was told by the captain of the ship. Beware of the technique he uses:
1. chop tomatos and spread them on the bottom of the plate.
2. sprinkle the tomatos with sea salt
3. chop onions finely and spread over the tomatos
4. sprinkle sea salt over the onions
5. slice cucumbers in cubes, layer them on top and DO NOT PUT SALT (emphasized the captain)
6. chop down green peppers and lay over the cucumbers
7. sprinkle with fresh dill and parsley
8. spray with red vinegar
9. grate 300g Bulgarian White Cheese
10. top the salad with olive oil, a lot
There you have it, the “Sailors’ salad” :)
The best cake I’ve had in ages, of course, it’s my grandmother’s. Two weeks ago I spet a nice Saturday at my grandparents’ villa. Among all the food they had prepared, was this simple, as my grandma says “rudimentary” cake recipe. Like all, true grandmas, my own relies only on her own eye and feeling about cooking. Therefore, I couldn’t obtain any detailed recipe, one to have the guts to share. I’ll keep it secret for know, at least till I try it myself.
Surprisingly edible raw chocolate, full of vitamins, minerals, and everything.
Fairly easy recipie too. I substituted the cocoa powder with finely grinded, raw, bio cocoa beans, to be even trendier. Nevertheless, I do not recommend this method, it is too time-consuming and I doubt the value added – just use the powdered cocoa as a normal person.
I also added more super foods like goji berries, raw pistachio and walnuts, raisins, dried cranberries and… that’s all
