BBC Recipe App – Blueberry Lemon Cheesecakes

Yes, my last post is a while ago, but that doesn’t mean that I have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks. I will take this week to update with some posts, because I have been taking tons of photo‘s, probably the reason why I didn’t take the time to sort and adjust them….

Let me start with my new addiction: the BBC GoodFood Cake Recipes App for Iphone.

Besides the fact that the app works well, is easy to use and has well explained recipes with also nutrition information, it has amazing looking photo’s of all the deliciousness of the recipes it contains. So, whenever I find myself having some time, like sitting in the bus or when I can’t get to sleep, I browse through the yummy sweeties.

When I saw the recipe for “Blueberry Lemon Cakes With Cheesecake Topping” I knew I had to make these first. So, when we went over to a friend for an english sunday lunch, I decided to provide a sweet for my friends.

And I’m glad I did, these little cheesecakes with blueberry, have a fresh sweetness, which are a delight to anybody who you serve them to.

I bought some lamps to improve my (blog) photo’s, I made these great photo’s. So sorry if I just over-posted with photo’s but I just couldn’t choose.

For those of you who don’t have the App you can find the recipe here

Enjoy!!

Monday Brownie Blues & A vitamin power juice

mondaybrownies4 - copyright @ LosAngelasLast Monday was a public holiday, my boyfriend went to play golf for the afternoon.

The house was quiet and it rained softly, a whole afternoon to be filled. I put Norah Jones and decided to start off with a vitamin-power-juice, I always put throw in something different depending on what I have in the fridge or freezer, here is what’s in this one. 

5 oranges – always a good basis 

2 red grapefruits – I just love their tangy fresh flavor

1 lemon – because they burst with vitamin C

Handful of blueberries – just because I had some left from the pancakes 

handful of raspberries (frozen) – they add a fresh taste, but also gives it nice pinkie color 

handful of mango pieces (frozen) – I always add mango, cause of it’s nice sweet taste and it add a thickness too

For that evening I was going over to my friend N for dinner, so I wanted to bake dessert, extra dark brownies with pecans and the last of the blueberries. I used darkest chocolate I could find. 

As you can see, they look pretty good, I can tell you that they smelled pretty good too…. unfortunately they didn’t taste pretty delicious, too dry and a bit too bitter too….. This calls for a remake!!!

I did found this recipe, for dark brownies if you would like to make them yourself.

Enjoy & Good Luck

Blueberry breakfast pancakes (and some with chocolate)

Every time I when I browse through other blogs or cooking/recipe site and I see these pancakes I think “oooh, I really have to make these one morning”

Well, this morning was a slow morning and it was raining, the prefect blueberry pancake moment. Of course it would not have been me, if I would not also slipped in some chocolate somewhere….

These are extremely easy to make, what you need it is:

200 gr selfraining flower                 a pinch of salt

1 tsp baking powder                           1 egg

300 ml milk                                          a tbsp of butter

a handful of blueberries                    a handful of raisins

some finely chopped chocolate        butter of oil for frying

The full recipe I got on the BBC food website: but when I made to batter I divided it two bowls, in one I added the blueberries and the other the chocolate and raisins.

So easy to make and absolutely delicious!

Enjoy, and have a nice weekend!!
