NAAN - INDIAN BREAD


I took this recipe from "Show me the curry" blog. I must say that naan is came out perfect! Just like it should be.

CHAMEI: GREEN TEA CAKE WITH PASSION FRUIT MOUSSE


One of best things to do is reading blogs. One of the best is Closet Cooking (in my opinion of course). I found there recipe for Matcha cake (green tea cake). I had to try it! Green colour of cake is incredible!
I thought that perfect companion for green tea will be passion fruit, so my cake has different filling than Kevin's.
My friend's love this cake! I hope you will also enjoyed :).

Recipe for passion fruit mousse I found on MasterChef UK website.

ASIA'S APPLE PIE


When I was young we had classes at school called ZPT. We learned how to cook, sew, repair stuff. At one of those lessons we had to bake cake. My friend Asia shared with us her family's Apple Pie recipe.
Since that time I am baking it quite often. The best is with vanilla ice-cream.
