I'M BACK !!!!

 

‘I’M BACK and I’m NOT going

ANYWHERE!’

 
Hello my friends! How are you? I have missed you all soooo much!

In case you were wondering, I am still alive! Mostly!

      I have written nothing and commented on nothing and done absolutely nothing but "light and easy" posts and that was just to ensure you that I haven't given up on my blog. That is something I couldn't/wouldn't do.

      First I owe you guys an apology for my prolonged silence. I didn’t mean to be gone for so long, but life happens. These past 3 weeks have been bumpy - a lot of things came up in my life and they were coming at me non-stop!  It was a combination of crazy hectic work, emotional roller coaster and a family medical issue that required my full attention. Sure things haven't settled down yet and I'm still in recovery, but I'm back to blogging and so eager to share my ideas and the events happening around my life and around the world.





      Oh, how I missed blogging. It has become a part of my life (a good, fulfilling, recreational and stress relieving part!) Writing posts with varying themes and reading other posts while commenting. Yeah!!! The pleasure of it! And I missed you my dear readers/friends and your comments!



 
      I want to take a minute to thank you all for being patient and continuing to visit, read and subscribe despite my absence! Trust me, even though I haven't been able to write anything, I still checked in daily. I am amazed by all of you and so very grateful for your support. Thank you! Your loyalty has been duly noted.

Let me just tell you that lots are coming up, so stay tuned!
 
Well, as I said, I'm back and I'm bearing gifts. "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts!" Hahahaha!
 
Here's  my delicious gift - a recipe for 'mosaico' dessert. A very popular, especially for kids, sweet treat that is very easy to make.
 
 
 
Ingredients:
  • 1 vase of nutella creamy chocolate spread
  • 24oz. of unsweetened chocolate (2 bars)
  • 2 packs petit beurre (appr. 450gr sweet butter cookies)

petit beurre biscuits
  • 1 cup of fresh milk
  • 1 1/2 tbs butter                             
  • 1 shot of cognac or rum       
  • grated walnuts (optional)

Break the chocolates into pieces, melt in a double boiler or in the microwave, and add the milk, nutella, the butter and the cognac or rum (and the optional walnuts).
 
Grind one pack of biscuits into a relatively fine state and break the rest into larger pieces. Add them into the chocolate mixture. Then spread the mixture onto a baking parchment paper. Try to roll the mixture (with the help of the paper) into a log. Keep it covered in the baking parchment paper and also cover it with aluminum foil. Refrigerate until solid cold. 
 
After it's been cold we can also glaze it with chocolate or dust lightly with sifted confectioner's sugar. Decorate (or not), cut slices and serve. It's de-li-cious!!! 



 

I look forward to hearing from you!!!

  1. First of all, welcome back! Hope all is well and looking forward to hearing whatever of these past few weeks you're willing to share.
    Second, I know you lived in the US so I can ask you this: what are you referring to when you say biscuits. I assume a fairly plain cookie like a vanilla wafer, not a cracker?

  2. Thanks Karen! The biscuits I'm refering to in the recipe are sweet butter cookies. I corrected the recipe and added a photo of what a petit beurre is.

  6. Welcome back to the blog-universe. Don't feel so bad, I left it for about a full year - really missed it though, but we all know family has to always come first.
    Glad you are back up and running!

  7. Welcome back, Vicki! I'm happy you were able to tend to your real-life issues. Those should always come first. That said, I'm glad you're back to the blogging world. You were missed!
    Your recipe looks delicious. My husband's grandma was Dutch and loved petit beurres. They have them here in the cracker/cookie aisle. And Nutella. Everything tastes amazing with Nutella!
    Have a wonderful day :)
