Chocolate Crinkles

Stunning beautiful cookies! It was the first time that I prepared crinkles and I’m really amazed from how easy and quick was this recipe ! The result cannot be beaten and really recommend to try this recipe. Imagine that the cookies could be frozen before baking and baked in small batches when needed. Note: if using a fan forced oven, like myself, I recommend to reduce the baking time to 11-13 minutes.


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch process)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter (at room temp, 1 stick)
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Golden Turmeric Chai Latte


As I checked the ingredients I was not completely sure that fennel seeds would not be to strong for this beverage. At the end I decided to all all the spices and some brown sugar as sweetener. After boiling and letting this soak, I sieved the mixture into two cups and …. WOW…. this was delicious! I almost forgot to say that I used soy milk for this delicious beverage and we enjoyed it very much!


1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cinnamon stick (or quill)
1 star anise
1 teaspoon fennel seeds (crushed)
1 teaspoon bean paste (vanilla)
500 ml milk (or can use soy or almond milk, 2 cups)

+ brown sugar to taste

Turkish Pomegranate Molasses Salad Dressing

This is wonderful dressing for green salads and much more!
In my case my greens were zucchini and green pepper. I still had some pomegranate seeds so I added some to the salad as well. 
For the dressing I used all the ingredients including the sumac and the dried mint, both from a Turkish shop 🙂 !
The pomegranate molasses is perfect to balance the sourness of the lemon juice, vinegar and sumac!
Letting the sauce sit for about one hours makes turn it even more delicious!


1/4 can(s)lemon juice (fresh)
1/4 colive oil
1/4 cbalsamic vinegar
1/4 cpomegranate molasses
1 clovegarlic, minced
1/2 tspdried mint
1/2 tspsumac (optional)
1/2 tspsalt
1/2 mediumred onion, finely chopped
ground black pepper, to taste

Indonesian Chicken

At least 5 stars for this recipe!
For the marinade I used the ingredients as described and for the soy sauce I used the salted Indonesian one.
I made the same quantity of marinade, but we were only 2 today, so I used 2 chicken breasts.
After marinating about 2 hours I grilled the meat and I boiled the marinate to make it save again.
I placed the almost done breast in a mold with the marinade in the oven at 80°C until my husband arrived (about 30 minutes). For serving I topped the meat with green onions and chopped red pepper.
The chicken was amazing good and so soft. A real must to try!


1 tspcrushed red pepper flakes
1 Tbspfresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 Tbspfresh lime juice
2 Tbsphoisin sauce
1 Tbsplow-sodium soy sauce
3garlic cloves, minced
4boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 oz. each)
