No-bake chocolate cake aka my mom's bd

As it was my mom's birthday I tried to make no-bake chocolate fudge cake for one more time. The recipe was already published here. This time it wasn't as sweet as the first time, because instead of semi-sweet chocolate I used 100 g of 70% cacao chocolate and only 200 g of semi-sweet chocolate. Also I didn't add any sugar. Tasted so much better!

 And this is how we gift-wrapped my mom's present.. ;) She loves that piglet from my former Etsy store - Mother Seal designs!
and this is at super yummy Uzbek restaurant....

Celebrating the first day of work, whoop, whoop! Unfortunately the only glasses we have are huge wine glasses, but that doesn't change the wonderful taste!

Oven baked potatoes - easy, interesting and very tasty


All you need is:
-potatoes
-sesame seeds
-rosemary (I replaced it with thyme)
-cumin seeds
-sweet paprika powder (I used it experimentally and it came out just fine)

Heat the oven to 225C.
Wash potatoes and cut them in halves (leaving the skin).
Sprinkle the spices and seeds on little plates.
Dip the  flat sides of the potato halves in spices or seeds.
After that oil the skin of the potatoes.
Prepare the pan laying it with parchment paper and place the potatoes onto it with the flat sides up.
Bake for 20-25 min or until soft.

Bon App├ętit!
