Chocolate brownie
How often do you treat yourself? DO you even do that? Usually my schedule is quite tight as I always work on few projects or I offer to much of my help to everyone. I never forget to treat myself after long day or after finished project. And you my dear friend don't forget to stop for a moment and prize yourself. If you have no idea for a small treat I will give you a hint. One of the greatest recipes. Chocolate brownie!

  • 260 g dark chocolate 
  • 120 g butter 
  • 35 g cacao powder
  • 5 g baking powder
  • 180 g eggs
  • 190 g sugar
  • 1 cup of white chocolate - melted (optional)

  1. Heat up the oven - 170°C.
  2. Melt chocolate in double boiler and when it's smooth add butter and mix well.
  3. In a small bowl mix chocolate powder with baking powder.
  4. Take off melted chocolate mixture and add eggs one by wine constantly mixing with hand whisk.
  5. Start adding dry ingredients to the chocolate spoon by spoon and mix well until all ingredients well combined.
  6. Move cake mixture to the square tin and  bake for 25 min. Check with a wooden stick if baked inside. If yes remove from the oven and let it cool in a tin. 
  7. Drizzle with white melted chocolate to get a nice effect.
  8. Remove from the tin and cut to the squares.
  9. Serve in the room temperature.

Thai red curry chicken with rice

Thai red curry chicken with rice
Hello Summer! Hello heat! June greeted us warmly! The whether is perfect and the island look like paradise! Claude are gone, sand is white again sand the water is soooo blue. Could dream about better  place to call it home. Some people says that the spice food is more winter’ish food but as I never followed crowd I can highly recommended also in a sunny day when the temperature hits the roof! Check my newest recipe for spicy red curry chicken with plain rice to achieved perfectly balanced meal!

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp of red curry paste (hot)
  • 200 g chicken
  • 200 g zucchini 
  • 1/2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp of sugar 
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • coriander leafs
  • 200 g basmati rice 
  • 1 lime
  • half red chili 

  1. Cook the rice according to the recipe on the package. Drain and set aside.
  2. Pour coconut milk into a medium pot and stir for 2 min over a medium heat.
  3. Add curry paste and mix until well dissolved.
  4. Cut chicken and zucchini into 1 cm chunks and add it all to the pot.
  5. Mix in fish sauce, sugar and water. Turn up the heat and let it boil for 10 min.
  6. Remove curry to the serving bowl. Garnish with coriander leafs, chili and lime wedges.
  7. Serve hot with some plain rice on side. 

You might thing I'm crazy but actually the spicy food is really helping during the very hot days. It raises your internal body temperature so it matches better with temperature outside. This will help your body to cool down.

If you are a vegetarian like my beloved friend Lisa you can try this recipe using a tofu instead of chicken or cheapie which is rich in protein.

I hope you'll love it.
