I think everyone knows the feeling when you want some sweet snack. It may be easy to grab a cookie, however when you read labels of store boughten cookies, with the list of odd ingredients you probably leave them on the supermarket shelf. At least I would do. And go back home to bake something myself, so I know what is in it.
When the other day I found myself in the sweet tooth mood, I decided to do some baking. Something sweet, something good and something free of gluten. A scrape of the bowl tasted promising, and when I got taste of the final result it was like: “Oh, I will make this again!”

For this cake you will need:
100 gram sugar (granulated,

Sometimes you want to make something different with ground beef. So I looked at my storage cupboard for ingredients and came up with these oriental style litte meatballs. Perfect meat dish with oriental  meals, but these also make nice snacks. Ofcourse they can be served with a potato-oven dish as well.

For 18-20 meatballs you will need:
500 grams ground beef
1 onion
6 heaped tablespoons dessicated coconut
almost 1 teaspoon (Celtic) seasalt
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
a little milk or a few tablespoons of beaten egg
1 dessertspoon peanutbutter (optional)
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil

You will also need:
a wooden board, a frying pan with lid

They are made this way:
1. Peel the onion and cut very fine.
2. Mix all ingredients but the coconut oil well together. Shape them in little balls the size of a pingpong ball.
3. Melt the coconut oil in the frying pan, when quite warm add the balls, and fry them for a few minutes until they are browned. Lower the fire, poor a little water to the pan, cover the pan and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes until they are done. Turn the heat higher and remove the lid for the last few minutes so the balls get a bit crunchy.

Torn cake

This is an old Transsylvanian recipe to make a sour cherry-mocha buttercream cake which is perfect for special occasions such as birthdays. It is a cake made with traditional ingredients; it is a bit of work to make the cake but the result pays for all the effort. Apart from the bakingsoda and cream of tartar there are no chemical additives involved. This cake should be made a day in advance to get a good consistency as well as nice blended flavours.

There is a story behind this recipe. The Hungarian Anna Maria Vitális (now 86 jaar of age) from Kezdivásárhely (Targu-Secuiesc) makes this cake at family birthdays, and it is from her I got it. She told her grandson Sasa, who loves this cake, how to make it, and he noted it down. Although he didn’t have any particular knowledge of cooking- and kitchen terminology (while on college he learned how to make simple meals with a special skill for fried eggs), he managed to translate it into English for me. Then it was my turn to adjust the translation to a recipe form.

You will need:
For the cake:
4 eggs
250-300 grams sugar
10 tablespoons water
100-150 grams ground nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazel, this is optional)
