For my graduating students – Végzős diákjaimnak

Just a few more days, and 54 of you, seniors in my three Advanced Placement Calculus AB classes will be gone from my classroom.  You will start a new and exciting journey in college or will travel the world for a while.  Wherever you will be, please don’t forget this great group that you were part of.  I know, I won’t.


Summer cake – Nyári torta

My birthday present with the gift note “Happy cooking and happy blogging!” arrived on Friday afternoon.  I could not have been happier!  The newest Nigel Slater cookbook A Year of Good Eating: The Kitchen Diaries III, sent from Great Britain, ordered by my son.  Thank you, Dávid!

When you quickly want to prepare a simple dessert which is delicious and not very sweet, this could be it.  The recipe is from Frame-by-Frame Quick & Easy, a visual step-by-step cookbook from the British series Love Food.  The orange could be replaced with any kind of citrus fruit.  In my opinion, the cream is best when served warm.
