Apple Pie

25 Nov

I have always wanted to bake desserts with apples and specially an apple tart. But I kept postponing it since dealing with doughs is quite challenging and I don’t usually cook with it, even though I love eating doughs alot, and breads. But this time, I said I’m gonna do it. Of course, after some “sticky-fingers” moments, I succeeded to form a nice dough.

I enjoyed alot preparing this apple pie. And I’m gonna try other recipes with apples and cinnamon. I love cinnamon alot. I add it to a cup of tea, sprinkle it on top of pancakes with honey.

I enjoyed baking and eating this apple pie, it is delicious, has simple ingredients, and distinct flavors.

Celery & Blue Cheese Soup

That was the time to try it. So I went to the market and got the ingredients I need to make this celery and blue cheese soup and afterwards, headed to the kitchen.

The recipe calls for Stilton cheese but I couldn’t find it so I got another kind of blue cheese. I like this spotted blue cheese, I find it exquisite, original. I added some croutons to the soup, yummiii.
