Foody Thursday - Chocolate Valentines
Posted on Thu, 03 Mar 2016, 10:20:00 AM  in Just for fun,  Happy Houses,  Recipe,  Tiny chefs
Tags:,  ,    

Here is what me and Alissa made for our boys this Valentine's Day  - chocolate Valentine's

We baked a basic chocolate sponge - the one from the package, where you add 3 eggs, cup of water and 1/3 cup of oil.

Then, we cut out hearts of various colour using cookie cutters

For filling and decoration - basic chocolate ganache + whipped cream + sweet cherries

 

Chocolate Ganache

250 grams semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup of whipping cream

1/3 cup of butter

Put all the ingredients in a glass bowl, microwave for 2 minutes, mix well until even, let cool, whip with a mixer for 3-4 minutes

 

Whipped Cream

2 cups whipping cream + 1/2 cup icing sugar - beat till steady peaks

Fill the pastries and decorate up to your liking

I was not allowed to decorate - Alissa did it all!

Foody Thursday - Warm Quinoa Salad
Posted on Thu, 25 Feb 2016, 08:55:00 AM  in Just for fun,  Happy Houses,  Recipe
Tags:,  ,    

It is all about healthy eating now, right? Some "healthy" recipes you come across just make you want to quit healthy eating once and forever. This one is not one of those :) We actually made it up with kids, then ate it, then made it again to take pictures. And kids are picky eaters....

2 cups of pre-cooked quinoa (we had a mixture of white and red quinoa)

1 bunch of green onion

1 can of red kidney beans (rinsed)

1 yellow bell pepper sliced

 

Dump it all at the same time into a wok or high frying pan and stir fry with some oil (we used grape) until it is warm all though.

 

Add salt, pepper, tea spoon of soy sauce.

 

Bon appetite!

Posted on Fri, 19 Feb 2016, 08:10:00 AM  in Recipe
Tags:,  ,    

Baked this one a while ago - found pictures today. May it bring a bit of summer and sunshine to your homes! Classic and always trendy - vanilla sponge, whipped cream, strawberries and chocolate. Enjoy!

 

Step 1 - Lets bake a basic vanilla sponge  (I doubled the recipe for my cake) 6 eggs 1 cup of sugar 1 package of vanilla sugar Beat up with a mixer till steady peaks Fold in 1 cup of sifted flour Bake in a mold covered with parchment at 180C until edges are golden and middle of the cake springs back when pressed Let chill and cut into 2 or 3 layers

 

 

Step 2 Beat 2 cups of heavy cream and 1/2 of icing sugar till steady peaks We will use it as filling and as icing!

 

 

Step 3 - fill the cake, ice the top and sides, cover sides with cookie crumbles

 

 

Step 4 Decorate the borders using a parchment bag with a star tip

 

 

Step 5 Cut fresh strawberries (do not remove stems) and spread them like a hand-fan. Decorate the cake with the "fans"

 

 

Something like this!

 

 

Step 5 Decorate with some melted chocolate!

 

 

Step 6 - Enjoy!

Yay, Foody Thursdays are back! Very easy to make dessert that could also be used as filling for cakes and pastries, and I will show you how next week, but for now - Cherry Cheese Dessert!




We will need:

1 cup whipping cream
1 cup soft cheese - tvorog
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 cherry syrup

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth and puffy. Use pastry bag to transfer to your serving plates, decorate with fresh fruit, berries, chocolate crumble.

Enjoy!

Foody Thursday - Little Mermaid Cake
Posted on Thu, 22 Jan 2015, 02:30:26 PM  in Just for fun,  Happy Houses,  Recipe,  Design
Tags:,  ,  ,    

Known and loved by many polish honey layered cake - this time in the shape of Little Mermaid. As many of you know, I don't take orders for the cakes anymore - no time baby! But for my favourite niece's birthday I am prepared to stay up all night :)

Little Mermaid Cake



Recipe for the layers and filling could be found here - 3D Guitar Cake

Little Mermaid Cake is a variation of traditional Barbi Cake. I just don't like barbies, only real dolls :)
We will need to bake quite a few circular layers of different diameter for the skirt - same idea as in Guitar Cake.
Make a whole in each layer using a cookie cutter or a drinking glass and stack them up from biggest to the smallest alternating with cream filling
Mermaid Cake - layers

Mermaid Cake - layers2
Make the stack as high, as your doll's waist, or a little higher
Ready skirt
I am using a usual rubber doll - it will need to be thoroughly washed, hair must go up, the bottom part must be wrapped in food grade plastic - cling wrap here
Wrapping a doll
Now the doll is ready to put on her skirt!
Inserting a doll

Doll in a cake

The skirt still looks quite ugly - we will need to cut the excess using serated knife and smoothen the skirt up using left over filling and a spatula
Smoothing the edges

And one-two-three - have fun decorating! We used regular marshmallow foundant, cut marshmallows, sprinkles and creamcheese frosting for the bottom frills of the skirt!

Also, our doll was holding a candle in each hand, as my darling niece turned 2!

Cheers!

Comfort food for the cold ugly winter weather - will keep your tummy warm and your face smiling!

Mushroom Casserole



Here is what we will need:

Crust:

4 eggs
300 gr sour cream - this is about 1 cup
200 gr mayo - about 3/4 cup
salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups all purpose flour

Just put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. You will sure see the recipes where you are supposed to sift flour and baking powder, then mix other ingredients in a separate bowl, then beat the eggs in yet another bowl. Just tell me please, what little elf is going to come and wash all those crazy bowls? I tried it -  same taste, same effect. So, why bother?
Mushroom Casserole - Dough
2.  Peel about 6 large potatoes, slice and fry with lots of sunflower oil till half cooked

3. Mushrooms sliced - 3 cups, fried with 2 large chopped onions, salt, pepper, thyme

4. Grated cheese - 2 cups

5. Get out your casserole baking dish and grease it well.

6. Layer 1 - half portion of the dough
Mushroom Casserole - Dough2

Mushroom Casserole - Preping Mushrooms and Potatoes
Layer 2  - potatoes
Mushroom Casserole - adding layers
Layer 3 - Mushrooms
Mushroom Casserole - adding layers2
Layer 4 - Grated Cheese
Layer 5 - remaining dough
Mushroom Casserole - adding layers4
7. Bake at 180 C for 40 minutes, then at 200C for another 10-15

8. Voila! and Bon Appetite!

Foody Thursday - Beef Squares
Posted on Thu, 04 Dec 2014, 10:13:13 AM  in Happy Houses,  Recipe,  Etobicoke
Tags:,    

I can bet your quests will never guess what are you serving them! Easy and fast to make, tasty and unusual - beef squares. Beef could be substituted with any other ground meat - turkey, chiken or even ground fish. As you would see on the pictures-  made by Alissa - yes, those tiny hands are not mine - so, you have no excuse for not trying them!

Foody Thursday - Beef Squares - Ready to go



We will need some ground meat mixture - same as you do for burgers

I had 2 pounds ground beef, 2 large minced onions, salt, pepper, quarter cup of water.
We will also need some waffle sheets - No Frills has them, I am not sure about other stores.
Foody Thursday - Beef Squares - 2
Spread the meat mixture on to the waffle sheet, cover with another waffle sheet, repeat.
Once you have about 4-5 waffle layers - cut into 2-inch squares
Foody Thursday - Beef Squares3

Dip squares into a mixture of lightly beaten egg and some salt.
Foody Thursday - Beef Squares4
Cook on the frying pan with some oil, flip when nessessary until golden on all sides.
Foody Thursday - Beef Squares - 5
Serve with your favourite side
And don't tell your guests and family what they are eating - make them guess and have fun!

Поварята - Пельмешки и Русский
Posted on Sun, 26 Oct 2014, 11:38:00 AM  in My services,  Just for fun,  Happy Houses,  Recipe,  Etobicoke,  Toronto,  Tiny chefs
Tags:,  ,  ,    
Пост на русском - для наших дорогих бабушек и дедушек. В клубе "Поварята" - пятое занятие. Поварята уже многому научились, но желание стряпать у них пока не пропало


Tiny Chefs - Class 5



На пятом занятии поварята готовили пельмени - месили тесто, готовили фарш, раскатывали, нарезали, лепили и варили. Снова плакали от лука и примеряли свои новые поварские колпаки.

А еще, благодаря нашей замечательной маме Катюше, у нас состоялось первое занятие по русскому языку!


Небольшой видео отчет


И фото

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 -RUSSIAN
Катюша и поварята вместе читают сказку

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 -RUSSIAN 2
И пробуют писать прописью

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 1
Наш самый младший поваренок

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 2
Это ничего, что скалка почти размером с поваренка - главное желание творить!

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 3
Научилась сама - поделись с подружкой!

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 4
Вырезаем кружочки

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 6
Пельмешки не совсем идеальны - но сделаны своими руками. Нашему самому старшему поваренку - всего 10

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 7
Скорей тащите еще кружочки!

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 9
Когда работаешь с мукой, никогда не знаешь, где эта самая мука может оказаться

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 10
Ловить рыбу может всякий - а вот чтоб выловить из кипятка пельмени - нужен талант

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 11
По пельмешке на ладошке

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 12

Tiny Chefs - Class 5 13
Что главное для растущего организма? Главное вовремя подкрепиться!

Tiny Chefs Club Meeting - Class 5 - Speaking Russian, Trying on Chefs Hats and Making Pelmeni
Posted on Sun, 26 Oct 2014, 11:23:49 AM  in My services,  Happy Houses,  Recipe,  Etobicoke,  Toronto,  Design,  Tiny chefs
Tags:,  ,  ,    
Class 5 with the Tiny Chefs was outstanding! The main event - our wonderful, creative Mom Katya started Russian Class with Tiny Chefs. Yes, this is the language we speak during our classes, some better, some not that much, but this is not the point - now all the little chefs have the opportunity to perfect their reading, writing and speaking skills along with hearing some amazing stories.
Other event, not as significant as the previous, but still fun - Tiny Chefs got their new Chef Hats - don't they all look amazing?
And then we cooked a bit and had fun eating what we cooked, and even played some soccer afterwards!
More pics and video below

Foody Thursday - Eggplant Towers
Posted on Thu, 16 Oct 2014, 09:39:30 AM  in Just for fun,  Happy Houses,  Recipe

Excellent appetizer, could be prepared in advance and refrigerated or served right away.

Eggplant towers



1. Cut eggplants into circles, add salt and set aside for 30 min, grill or fry in oil. Transfer into marinade

2. Marinade: 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, 1 tbsp honey. Set aside for a couple hours

3. Built your towers by alternating the circles of eggplant, tomatoes and mozarella. Decorate with fresh basilic. I had no basilic on hand - so parsley it is!

4. Add salt, pepper and some left over marinade

5. Enjoy!
