Stuffed peppers, yummy ;)

Hello, dears! Stuff peppers are one common dish in all Balkan countries, but there can also be different variations of the recipe. 
For the following recipe, the cooking time takes approximately 1h and 20min so the peppers get soft. 

The ingredients: 

- 6 big peppers
- 600 gr ground meat - mixed pork, beef) 
- 100 gr rice
- 1 egg
- 200 gr sour cream 
- 200 gr tomato sauce/puree
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots 
- spices: salt, pepper,paprika, dill, parsley


We prepare all the ingredients, wash and cut the peppers, taking out the seeds, grate the carrots and cut the onion. The rice also needs to be boiled, not completely though. 




We mix the carrots, onion, meat, rice and spices in a large bowl. At the end, we add the egg and we continue to mix for a short while.
Then the fun part begins: stuffing the peppers :)



For the sauce in which peppers will boil, we need to mix the sour cream, tomato sauce, salt and pepper.


We arrange the peppers in the pot and we add the sauce:



We cook for at least 1h, on low fire. To see if they are ready, just take one pepper out and check under the "lid" :)

We served ours next to a very fresh salad, with dressing made of yogurt and a bit of oil olive ;)

Bon appetit!

Kiwi cake

Helloo! It's time for something sweet and easy to bake, especially during weekend. 
I bought some kiwi recently and since they were taking awhile to get ripen, I decided to bake something with them. 
So here is the cake I made with them, and also a vanilla pudding. 


Ingredients: 
- 1/2 pack of butter - 100gr
- 200 gr flour
- 100 gr brown sugar
- lemon essence
- baking powder
- 8 medium size kiwi 
- 4 eggs

For pudding - yes I cheated: I bought an already pack but to make it better, you can add some butter, brown sugar, and of course milk - 0.5l. 



As usual, separate the egg whites from yolks and mix well in 2 bowls. Also I peeled and cut the kiwi into smaller pieces. 




For the dough part, mix everything and carefully add the egg whites at the end. place the baking paper in the tray and pour the dough easily, adding the fruits. 

I pre-heated the oven at 150 °C and the cake was baked at 200 °C during 1h.
And the result looked like this: 



Or like this, when I finally took it out: 




I couldn't help it and ate a piece immediately :) 







Bon App├ętit!
