Lasagne

by Sofia   -   in Cooking

Lasagne is one of those recipes like bolognese, everyone has their way of making it. It may be your parents recipe or even your grandparents recipe. I love my dad´s bolognese so much and luckily my husbands tastes very similar and now shares the number one spot with my daddy´s. My lasagna recipe is from a cookbook called Gant in the Kitchen. It is one of my favourite cookbooks. Very randomly so, as it is from the interior & clothing company. It has so many classic recipes and some a bit more contemporary ones and they are all so good. One of our favourites is the vegetarian gruyere lasagna. I have made both the veggie version and then I have made a more classic one with minced beef. I have used gruyere but also substituted the cheese for a bit mellower ones like emmenthal & cheddar. And we turn it in to an ” alpine” lasagne on our ski trips by using the gruyere and then even adding raclette cheese on top. It has a very strong scent but it is the best thing after a day on the slopes! I have made the tomato sauce from scratch with the juice & tinned tomatoes and I have used store bought marinara that I have seasoned with the herbs in the recipe. It always turns out so delicious. When I serve it with meat I just substitute the mushrooms for minced beef and still keep the aubergine & the carrot in the recipe. They just make a difference. It is a bit more work than your average lasagne but well worth it! Enjoy! I´m sharing it as it is in the book but feel free to use my fast track tricks and substitutions!

Do you have something fun planned for the weekend? We are baking for a charity bake sale with the girls on Friday evening. Saturday morning we are also decorating some cupcakes. Saturday night we will get all the girls from Cotton Candy´s class for a sleepover. It´s her birthday party this year. They will decorate pizza for dinner ( just make the pizzas ahead or buy frozen and cut cute shapes of ready sliced cheese they can add on it right after it comes from the oven and get some fresh herbs too like sage, oregano and basil).We will do milk shakes with sprinkle covered rims on the glasses. And soda, because it´s a birthday party. I baked some mini bite sized cupcakes and the cutest cloud sugar cookies with little faces on them.

Frappuccino

by Sofia   -   in Cooking  Good things for kids  Party planning

Lupailin jakaa Pinterestistä löytyneen copycat Starbucks frapuccinon ohjeen jonka perusteella meidän frappeista tuli ainakin herkullisia. Teimme juhlissa tosiaan useampaa eri makua mm. suklaa, caramel ja mansikka. Mansikasta tuli ihanan pinkkiä ( laitan siitä kuvan tänään insta stooreihin joten näet sen täällä) mutta juhlahumussa nappasin kuvan vain yhdestä valmiista annoksesta. Nämä onnistuvat erinomaisesti myös kauramaidosta ja vegaanijätelöstä tehtynä, sekin tuli testattua! Mikään ihan kevyt sokeriton juoma tämä ei ole vaan todellinen herkkupommi. Varsinkin ilman kahvia kyseessähän on lähinnä kermavaahdolla kuorrutettu pirtelö. Kuvissa näkyvän annoksen on tehnyt Hattaran luokkakaveri joten tämä frappuccinojen tekeminen sujuu todistetusti hyvin myös toka- ja neljäsluokkalaisilta.

I promised you a frappuccino recipe and you are getting it! They are so easy to make ( and basically milkshakes). You can make them with or without coffee.

Frappuccino

1 cup milk

3/4 cup vanilla ice-cream

1/2 cup crushed ice

1/4 cup ice-cream syrup/sauce ( strawberry, caramel, chocolate etc.)

whipped cream on top

Just blend it all in an electric mixer, pour in a glass and top off with whipped cream and a bit more syrup. You can even add sprinkles. So yummy if you are 8 and love all things sweet, cute and fluffy.
