Pancakes with Golden Syrup

I’ve made this pancakes a dozen of times by now, but I didn’t manage to blog about them until now. I’ve never had pancakes before coming to London. Not sure why, but probably because I used to make crepe when I was home, as my grandma and my mother before me did.

But since they say: When in Rome act like Romans :), I had to try and make some pancakes, and now I’m so in love with them, that I actually never prepared any crepes in a long time..

Now that I think about it maybe I should..soon..some savoury ones – with salmon, chives and creme cheese, or chicken and mushrooms? We shall see.

So many people enjoyed them, and I think now it’s time for me to share the recipe with you. To be honest I am not really sure where I found it but it works just fine for me.

Bacon and mushrooms muffins

I have to admit I was pretty busy at the office these past two weeks, so I neglected the blog a lot..sorry about that..I wish I could stay home and write my blog instead of going to an office and sit in front of a laptop, but I can’t for now…maybe soon :).

I still cooked though, and I have some new pictures and a recipe from the Hummingbird bakery cookbook to share with you :).

Here a picture of the lovely tasty muffins before we start working:

Salmon and risotto for dinner

Risotto… seemed to me just impossible to cook for a long time it..I was so afraid of it that I couldn’t bring myself to even try ..

But this time I did it..and it was so delicious but probably slightly overcooked.. I will be more careful next time..

I paired it with some honey and whole mustard glazed salmon and it was just perfect for dinner ..look:

I just wanted for so long to do homemade hummus, but never did it..mainly because in Romania it seemed hard to find Tahini paste..which is very important to have a really tasty hummus..

But London has lots of stores where you can find the magical I bought some..and went home to prepare a hummus which we served together with olives, cheese, grilled artichokes and some chorizo .. a very multiethnic dinner if you like :), but a really tasty one.

Beef steak with watercress, rocket and baby spinach salad

I have to tell you that we really looooove beef J. We love the taste, the looks and the fact that our livers appear to be happier with it compared to pork..

So once a week we have beef, usually steak because it takes a couple of minutes to be ready, it’s tasty and it’s suitable for dinner, for some of us …concerned about their weight… 🙂

So this week’s beef steak was a mustard beef sirloin with a crunchy salad. Just look at it..
