Earlier, I mentioned here on the blog, that the tulip doesn’t occupy a very prominent place among my favorite flowers. However, from time to time I can hardly get enough of their beauty. I am astonished at their diversity, both in color and form. There are close to one hundred species and thousands of breeds of tulips.

Chocolate orange cream – Csokoládés narancskrém
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.
The beauty of tulips – A tulipánok szépsége
I let these tulips speak for themselves. Hagyom, hogy ezek a tulipánok önmagukért beszéljenek.
Chocolate muscovado banana cake – Csokoládés banántorta muscovado cukorral
This cake uses a special, soft and moist, very dark brown sugar with a distinctive flavor, called muscovado sugar. You can substitute it with regular brown sugar, but you will lose the almost caramel-like molasses taste. The cake would still be wonderfully delicious.
It’s spring! Beautiful! – Tavasz van! Gyönyörű!
Once it’s sprinkling rain, other times light breeze, and more and more often bright sunshine. Flowers, flowering trees – whites, pinks, yellows, reds, blues, and purples. The smell and the colors of spring. Pictures instead of words.
Seattle’s new floating bridge – Seattle vadonatúj úszóhídja
Seattle has a new bridge! We’ve seen it being built for five years. Today was the grand opening. The new SR 520 floating bridge – built by the Washington State Department of Transportation – is the longest in the world, 7710 feet. It’s designed to last for 75 years.
The sunny Green Lake – A napsütéses Green Lake tó
Spring break, day 3: Walking clockwise around Seattle’s popular Green Lake in the morning around 8 a.m. Reading the different signs around the lake and noticing the fishing boat and the friendly ducks. Not too many people. Beautiful flowers on my way back to our house.
