One of my favorite pastas is the traditional Hungarian cabbage pasta. In my childhood, I always ate it with sugar, but in these days sometimes I prefer the peppered version. I serve it as a second course after a hearty soup. It’s a perfect comfort food, especially on a rainy day.
While visiting Sacramento in the end of September, during the lunch breaks of the 9th International Food Blogger Conference, I got a chance to walk in the city. Besides enjoying the weather and the walk itself, I enjoyed the public art displayed along the streets.
It wasn’t the first time that I visited Sacramento, the capital of California. But it was the first time that I got a chance to explore it on my own, even though I didn’t have too much time to do so.
“Have fun!” said my husband, as I headed to the precheck security line at SeaTac airport on a Thursday evening. I usually don’t fly alone, we like to have trips together, but this time I was going to have the weekend adventure on my own.

The signs were all there for some time: The article I read about them, their tasty baguette, which I bought in the Little Lago Grocer close to my school, and the crispy but not too buttery chocolate croissant – hiding bittersweet Valrhona chocolate – I ate from the selection of their morning pastries a friend of mine brought to a school meeting one day.
This is a tart which won’t disappoint you! Every time I baked it – whether for ourselves or for our friends – it was received with great enthusiasm. I adapted the recipe from Mai magyar konyha by Tamás Bereznay (the title translates into English, word-by-word, as Today’s Hungarian Cuisine).
There are many different ways to enjoy Prague, to be a tourist in the Golden City, the Czech capital. The city is the place of my college years; I feel at home here. Let me share with you some of my favorite walks on the cobblestone streets, seeing some of the famous sites.
After a short break in baking and blogging, I’m back in the kitchen, and sharing a recipe on this blog. Today’s morning treat is a simple scone served with my favorite jam from Emily Luchetti’s The Fearless Baker.
