My potato experiment!

Potato life on Mars!

Do you remember the time I had written a humoristic poem on the weird sprouted potatoes I had forgotten in my balcony for two months? (I still have to work on my photography category & insert the photos back in!) well, my potato plant experiment finally ended a few weeks ago & I decided to share the happiness & pride in my labor with you today… bear in mind that it was grown in a pot, I “babysat” it indoors once the cold settled in and not even organic fertilizers were used all along ­čÖé

It was more for the fun than the quantity gained (which wasn’t much) my grandchildren & I had a ball of a time guessing… creating suspense & wondering if anything had come out of it, for all we knew there could’ve been nothing under! The thrill of the surprise was one of these special moments we cherish deep inside for a long time…

Easy Party recipe (Part 2) Multi-purpose EASIEST 100% natural dough recipe!

Marble cake

Do you remember when I posted quite a while back this brilliant dough recipe where it can be used for practically anything? From chocolate, raisins, poppy-seeds, lemon, coffee, carrot, almond or English fruit cake… anything your heart desires! All needed is to stamp it with your own creativity ­čÖé
It is sugar-egg-coloring-additive-free & as usual with extra virgin olive oil & 80% wholemeal spelt flour but you can change it to un-natural if you prefer.
I had then posted my dried fruit version in a cake & muffins possibility, now I’m introducing to you the photos of the marble, chocolate & raisins ones but as I’d baked it the same day & didn’t have time to let it cool down and be refrigerated, they crumbled a bit so, my apologies for that!

For the flavors I put a little in, eg. cocoa & give it for someone to taste & add more if necessary.
