Salted Preserved Lemons

Have you ever tried to pickle lemons? I’ve always thought that this makes no sense, since it is easy to buy them all year round. It turns out not all that easy. Having found out a number of Eastern cuisine recipes and some recipes by Jamie Oliver, where pickled lemons were used, I decided to try to make them and was not disappointed. Lemons turned into a fragrant spice and it was easy to use them in dishes right with the peel. Pickling lemons is easy. You just need to cut them to put into the jar and cover with salt. You can also add various spices and herbs so they get more fragrant. Then leave them for a few weeks at room temperature and everything is ready. Try it – you will not regret!

Easy To Make Apple Cake

Quite a funny story happened with this cake. My wife was going to bake it for the arrival of guests and prepared a dry mixture. Coming of the guests canceled at the last minute, and since I’m not a fan of apple baking and nobody was going to eat it, we decided not to bake the cake. And this bowl with dry mixture covered with foil was left. It stood on the kitchen table for a long time, about a month. This bowl was an eyesore. So, the cake was baked right before coming of other guests. Preparing this cake is very simple, so chalk up!

Mini Pretzel Sausages

I was already nostalgic about my school years and baked simple honey buns, and here nostalgia came back again. Although this is more about university years because sausage rolls for a while was the only eatable thing in our canteen. Their quality was certainly doubtful, but we got coming and going, so periodically ate them. Actually I did these sausages for guests with kids, so they became mini sausages.

Sweet Pickled Cucumbers

After a short absence I’d like to share a wonderful recipe of pickled cucumbers. They are a great snack for any table, so be sure to try it. Certainly it’s better to use seasonal cucumbers, but at other times it is possible to find decent ingredients. Preparing all is very simple, you just need a couple days to leave the cucumbers in the fridge.

Pull-Apart Cinnamon Brioche Bread

As I said, I am absolutely not a fan of sweet pastry. But I really like the famous cinnamon rolls (Cinnabon) and their variants. Actually this bread is one of such variations. The procedure of folding is somewhat different and the dough is different (I tried to make rolls of it, they are different from the original.) Dough, by the way, is the variation of brioche dough. It can be easily used for other sweet and airy pastry.
