Drove  for 4 hours forth and back and almost got roasted in my car even if I have used the A/C! Super sunny day, first day I had star by putting shorts instead of trousers!

Onion rings with aioli

Onion rings with aioli
The May started for me very poorly. My computer have broken. I was not able to take, store or edit any new picks. As I was super used to my old beautiful Mac which spent with me last 5 years btw - I've tried to go an extra mile to get it fixed. Nothing worked unfortunately. The piece which was broken exceed the value of the computer. Thankfully I was smart enough to regularly back up the data so I didn't loose my five years achievement. Sad and with the tear in my eyes I had to say goodbye to my sweetest apple and I had to get a new one. Lucky enough I had to only upgrade my computer to the newer version but I am happy that I can work on the same bases.

I would like to introduce you to my newest recipe - Onion rings with aioli.


  • 1 egg
  • 200 ml olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp of white wine vinegar *(optional) 
  1. Separate the yolk from white and place in the bowl, add pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. By using a hand wish mix egg with seasoning and constantly mixing start adding oil by pouring slowly. It is the same way you would wish a paste for mayonnaise. 
  3. Peal garlic and press into the bowl with creamy paste. Mix all well. Optionally you can add a table spoon of vinegar to get a sharper taste.

Onion rings

  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • cold sparkling water
  • pinch of salt
  1. Cut onions into large slices and divide it to rings. 
  2. In a large bowl mix flour and baking powder with water using a hand whisk. (We are looking here for butter a bit thicker then pancakes mixture).
  3. Bring your oil to 180°C temperature.
  4. Coat rings with butter one by one and place straight into the hot oil.
  5. Fry until golden.
  6. When ready remove from the oil onto kitchen towel to remove the access of oil.
  7. Serve hot with aioli and green garden peas. 

I hope you will all enjoy it.

I am super happy to be back. As I promised myself I will continue my adventure with blogging no matter what I am back and ready to follow my dream.
