  1. That'd be 9:30ish here, sometimes 8:30 when lunch was light and dinner is going to be more substantial. Lunch is around 2pm on weekends. Somewhat earlier on workdays as we eat at work.
  2. A basic frangipane - egg, almond flour, sugar, a bit of flour, almond extract. It feels like the top crust of a brownie (or at least those with a thicker crust), but almond falvored.
  3. Recent summer desserts. Panna cotta with campari syrup, nectarine, orange zest, vanilla. Plum cake with frangipane topping. Plenty of nutmeg, brown sugar, some cinnamon, some almond extract and vanilla. + Ice cream. Various sorbet and blender ice creams. This one is strawberry and campari. Unpictured: strawberry and sour cream, mango and coconut, mango yogurt and cinnamon. Thai milk tea with tapioca (condensed milk). Vanilla ice cream with pecans and whisky.

    Life and work gets in the way of me being engaged here lately, though I'm still stalking here and there. Here's some of what I've been cooking. Spaghetti with pine nuts, olives, capers and raisins, olive oil, breadcrumbs. Thai herbal soup (makrut lime, galangla, ginger, lemongrass, dill) with spiced matzo ball. Rigatoni in cherry tomato and cream sauce with onion, pecorino and chives. Cold beetroot soup with coconut cream and thai curry paste, cucumbers, edamame, rice noodles, egg, Thai basil, scallions, ginger. Apples and rice noodle salad with peanuts, toasted dried shrimp, peanuts, fish sauce, lime ,sugar, chili. Baby eggplants and onion stuffed with rice, flavored with baharat. Bamia bi zaitoon - okra in tomatoes, garlic and olive oil. Labneh. Mushroom dan dan noodles. Baked pasta with cheese and kimchi. I haven't noticed until now, but seems we are in a pasta/noodle mood lately.
  5. Made a smoothie of mangoes and a little coconut cream, pandan extract, ginger, brown sugar, rose water, cinnamon.

    I had Festonati for the first time today. Didn't even knew it exists. Quite nice, like improved rigatoni, and I love rigatoni.
  15. Blintzes filled with farmers cheese, lemon zest, vanilla and raisins. I wanted to brulee it, but couldn't find the torch I'm sure is laying somewhere. So I ended up grilling them. Not exactly the same result, but still tasty.

Chill a bit and pour the lemon juice, water, brandy and extracts on top. Prepare an oven with a water bath, preheated to 190dC. To make the cake batter, mix the yolks, ricotta, sour cream, yogurt, starch, vanilla, cinnamon, zest and salt. Mix well. Separately, whisk the egg whites and sugar and soft, flexible peaks.
