I have to admit, I don’t feel guilty of being lazy. I didn’t put a new post out for ages but it doesn’t mean I wasn’t cooking or baking , oh no. I was baking and cooking like a maniac!
Let me explain what was going on which made me not being able to write about it…
First, there was a Jubilee celebration and everyone went mad for britishness in their cakes and desserts. I have to admit, I’m guilty of that as well.
I made cakes, simple little desserts…
Then I went to Italy, which as I mentioned before, is my idea of heaven and if I lived there I would die of gluttony.
So there was a lot of eating involved…and not to mention drinking…
And then it all went back to normal.
Next subject will be gluten free biscuits and hazelnuts meringue.

Risotto is one of my favourite dishes. I can’t say my absolute favourite, like I can’t say what my favourite film is- there is just too many amazing ones to choose from.
Here’s the thing though – if you ever go to a posh restaurant where waitresses look like models and you sit on uncomfortable but beautiful to look at chairs, you won’t find anything vegetarian on the menu apart from mushroom risotto. And it’s always the most horrible dish you can ever try and you have to pay for it (honestly, they should pay you for making you eat it). It’s either undercooked or overcooked, looks like grey blob and is tasteless. Trust me, the only good risotto I ate was the one I had in Italy or at my sister’s.
