Walking in Prague – Prágai séta

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.

Sweet potato and butternut squash soup – Édesburgonyás sütőtök-krémleves

Earlier on this blog, in the introduction of my cauliflower soup recipe, I mentioned that once I read advice about not cooking soup for a big crowd because it would generate too many (extra) dishes that would need to be cleaned.  A few weeks ago, I purposely went against this advice because I wanted a soup as the first course for the lunch that Steve and I were hosting for my lovely mother-in-law’s 88th birthday.

Two-colored sandwich cookies – Felemás

By now, you might have noticed that I quite often cook and bake from Hungarian cookbooks.  Many recipes from these books I’ve used multiple times, since some of these books I’ve had for a long time.  However, today I am presenting a recipe from Sütemény és torta by Mari Lajos that’s new for me. This is the first time I baked these little sandwich cookies.  Half of the cookies have light color, half of them are dark from added cocoa powder.

Lemon maple granola – Citromos juharszirupos granola

As you probably know, making your own granola is one of the easiest things you can do in the kitchen.  You actually don’t need a recipe if you keep the 6:1 ratio of dry and wet ingredients in mind.  You might recall reading about this in one of my earlier posts of crunchy maple nut granola.  However, today I do recommend that you check out this new recipe.
