This week we invited some friends out for supper to thank them for helping out last October. We set up the Fondue since we haven’t done that in a while and it’s a lot of fun. You can eat while you talk and not stuff yourself like crazy. The challenge was dessert because one of your friends is living gluten free.
This year I had no time to make anything special for Valentine’s Day because I am teach that very day so no time for romance. However, last year I made a couple of things and I’d like to share them with you.
A week or so ago I talked to my mother in Germany and she told me what she made for Christmas. In our family, Christmas supper depends on the person who is hosting it. So each year will be different. She told me what her dessert was and since we are invited over to a friends house I thought I would make the same dessert: Panna Cotta.
I always wanted to make some Truffles but never got around to do it. Several pages like Sumptuous Spoonfuls have some lovely ideas on how to go about it. So here I am, making Truffles.
I was fairly busy the last days, not with cooking and baking but with other stuff. I barely had time to actually sit down and take care of pictures and posts. Sorry about that. However, I do have a couple of things lined up for you. Lets get started on a fairly simple supper or lunch dish: Potato Gratin.
Sometimes a recipe asks for only half of the egg, either egg white or egg yolk. That’s ok if it’s only one but if you end up with a lot then you run into a problem. I already had a solution for the egg yolk: chocolate pudding. But what does a girl do if you have a lot of egg whites left over?
