So it’s been a while since my last post, but my job and my sista kept me busy, really busy…
For the weekend we still found time for some delicious Halloween Treats:
Halloween cookies which tasted great!!!
The recipe is from the book
Cooking Up a Storm: Recipes Lost and Found from The Times-Picayune of New Orleans by Marcelle Bienvenu
And Pesto Swirls:
Take 4 Tbsp pesto, your favorite yeast dough (mine was 250 ml water, 1 package dry yeast, 380 g flour, 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar, 1 1/2 tsp salt, 1 Tbsp olive oil), roll out the dough about 1/4 inch, spread the pesto on it, roll up, cut into 1 inch slices, put them on a baking sheet, bake at 400°F for about 15-20 min…
It’s a perfect appetizer, great with wine or sangria.
This is one of these recipes that you know for so long, but never tried it. Last week my sista and I talked about the weekend and what to cook and she said: “Hey we have got some pesto left, what could we use it for?” And I remembered this recipe and she was “Pesto swirls? Yeah great idea…have we every made some? I know the recipe but I can’t remember eating them?…So at last here they are…
So that’s it for today.
Maybe I ‘ll have more time next week….then I will show new old photographs, cook tamales and bourbon chicken and talk a bit about Star Wars and our last Halloween cakes….
See you soon and have a nice time!!!
