Daring Bakers - Lasagne

Domingo, Março 29th, 2009

The March 2009 challenge is hosted by Mary of Beans and Caviar, Melinda of Melbourne Larder and Enza of Io Da Grande. They have chosen Lasagne of Emilia-Romagna from The Splendid Table by Lynne Rossetto Kasper as the challenge.

The main part of the challenge was to make the pasta for the lasagne, a spinach egg  pasta. First, I was quite afraid of the result, but it came out fine.

I followed the bechamel  recipe, but the ragu was made only with pork. Check the recipe in the hostesses’ sites.

Thank You!

AracneDesigns no Viva La Moda

Sexta-feira, Março 27th, 2009

Recentemente foi lançado o desafio a alguns artistas, o de apresentarem trabalhos  com potencial para aparecerem na revista online de moda, Viva La Moda, coordenada por Gilbea.

Decidi (AracneDesigns) apresentar um conjunto de brincos e anel que felizmente foram seleccionados. A fotógrafa Isis fez um excelente trabalho.

Recently I (Aracne Designs) had the challenge to create some items for an online magazine called Viva La Moda, edited by Gilbea. I made a pair of earrings and a ring and submitted to their appreciation. Fortunately,  they were chosen and photographer Isis made a wonderful job.

The photos with my items are below.

Cupcakes

Quinta-feira, Março 19th, 2009

Recentemente descobri que entre servir um bolo banal e apresentar bolinhos individuais, a diferença é enorme. Temos o mesmo trabalho, usamos a mesma receita, mas… os olhos também comem.

Pois bem, há tempos apresentei uma sugestão de cupcakes de caramelo que provam a minha teoria; hoje recomendo um site que poderá servir de inspiração para muitos lanches, festas e chás.

Trata-se de Cupcake Royale, uma loja em Seattle que também vende bolinhos online. Claro que nem todos podemos encomendar, mas podemos usufruir das fotos fantásticas para criarmos os nossos próprios cupcakes.

Recently I found that between serving a common cake and presenting cupcakes it’s a lot different. We have the same recipe, the same time spent but it can be a surprise to our guests and family.

As an example I have my caramel cupcakes, but a place where we can all be inspired it’s Cupcake Royale. It is a place in Seattle with lots and lots of cupcakes with different colors and flavors.

Although not all of us can order from them, it can be a fantastic inspiration to all our culinary adventures.
