Sweet lemon cottage cheese rolls + Quick raspberry sauce

It is that time of the year again, when all I want to do is put lemon into everything and more importantly, when I want to eat cottage cheese rolls all the time. They’re a nice middle between a comforting yeasty roll, which has a more wintry feel to it, and a fresh, lemony filling, that screams spring.

And while I was going through my recipes, I realized that I haven’t shared this re-do of an old favorite yet. I have no reason not to, I actually want all of you to have a roll for breakfast tomorrow, because it’s Sunday, so why not?

Simple radicchio pizza with egg

Did you know that it was national pizza day in the USA about a week ago? Well, I didn’t. I jumped on Instagram as I do every day, especially late in the evening or in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep, and everyone was posting pizza pics! And when you have multiple accounts posting the same thing you know something is up. And so it was.

I know that there are a lot of days in a year dedicated to different foods, all over the world, but in my curiosity to see just how many special days we have I decided to look it up. This page on Wikipedia seems like it has the best list, even though I’m still a little nervous anytime I mention Wikipedia as a reference for anything. It was one of those websites we were pretty much forbidden to use at Uni, because it’s not edited or proof-read as a book is. If you mentioned it in an essay, a professor gladly pointed that out as a bad thing.

Buttery plum pie bites

I was going to start this post by telling you all about plums and how they’re the best thing you can have during this season, and how I didn’t even like them as a kid, but then life happened. And now I don’t feel like writing about plums anymore.

I got a call from a card management center and the woman on the other end of the line informed me of some odd transactions made with my Visa card. I didn’t notice anything myself, so I was shocked by it all. And confused and by the end of the day pretty pissed.

Card fraud when I’m really careful? When I rarely even use the card? When there are codes you need to enter that are supposed to protect you? What the hell? Well apparently this shit still happens and it can happen to anyone.

The best easy pizza dough

I talk so much about pizza around here (and everywhere else), I thought it was about time I shared a proper pizza dough recipe. Although I did share one ages ago, before starting this blog last year, but I have since removed it because it was just an archived post from my previous let-me-see-if-I-can-blog blog. A few of you may remember it, but if you don’t, don’t feel bad about it. I don’t.
Anyway, this is one of my Basics posts I want to do. Because if you’re like me and you like to cook, chances are you have a few basic recipes you always use, for making pizza dough, perfect crepes or basic pasta. If you don’t have the recipes, I hope you find mine helpful. There are many pizza dough recipes out there, which is wonderful and that’s what I find fascinating about cooking. How so many people can make the same thing but it’s still unique to them, everyone has their own version or way of doing it, and here’s mine.
