Chocolate chips scones

I like to experiment and Chocolate chips scones sounded like a great idea. So, I gave it a try and it turned out very good. I didn’t add any sugar as the chocolate is sweet and we eat them with jam. If you want more sugary scones, add 25g sugar.

For scones is important to have the right balance, as the dough should be wet. Use a kitchen scale, I use it every time when I’m baking scones.

Rhubarb and vanilla jam

I made melon and cinnamon jam and I loved it. Adding spices gives an extra flavour that makes it stand out. So my next preserve was a Rhubarb and vanilla jam. I love this one too, the vanilla has a subtle flavour and the slight sharpness of the rhubarb makes it special.

Beetroot and garlic soup

I bought a food processor in an attempt to add more veggies in my diet, especially raw ones and so far I’m doing great. One of the things I’m doing often these days is soups, most of them are ready in minutes. I add some veggies that I’m not very found of, like the carrot. The carrot and other similar veggies give a mild taste and they are easily overpowered by the others.

This is the first beetroot soup I’ve made and it turned out beautifully. It was ready in 5 minutes and it was delicious.

Pizza on the BBQ

Last year we’ve bought a pizza stone for the BBQ, but so far I’ve used it in the oven, see halloumi pizza. As is warm outside and we finally managed to refurbish the garden gate, we’ve added the bamboo screening. It was time for a BBQ. As I has almost no veggies, I told hubby I’m going to use the pizza stone for its real purpose. It was even better than expected!
