Happy Friday y´all,

since Valentine´s Day is right around the corner and I have planned more content than usual for one of my favorite holidays I am starting today with these adorable treats – RED VELVET CUPCAKES. I love red velvet cake. It is my favorite flavor ever and probably won´t change.
First I wanted to make a whole cake but after thinking on how to serve it little cupcakes came in a lot more handy for this purpose.
The deep red of the batter and the soft and delicious vanilla frosting topped with tiny pink sugar hearts make them the perfect little cake to gift to your collegues, family, friends or even enjoy all by yourself. 
I have made red velvet cake several times but have never been a 100% satisfied and that was because of the color. If you have the wrong color when the batter is still raw it will turn out more pink than red and that is never what I was going for. It was back in August last summer when I found a food coloring paste from Wilton and it changed my baking forever. 
It it super high pigmented and it also has the consistency of jello so it won´t dilute your dough at all but color very nicely. I know it says icing color on the packaging but that works just fine.If you are also bothered by food color a lot you should get it. They have over 10 colors and I think they might be as good as this one.
 
Not only do I love the holiday because of its meaning, I also don´t mind that the color combination of pink and red is going to be even more popular these days.
 
What is your favorite cake ? Do you have one?

Food Friday – Soft + Chewy Oatmeal Cookies….

….

Happy Friday you guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am sharing another cookie recipe on the blog today. I usually don´t have any sweettooth but when it comes to cookies I am somehow out of control. The last cookie recipe I have shared was all over the internet and after I tried it I knew why. Be sure to check out the pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe here.

For today´s post I have tried these oatmeal cookies I have found on allrecipes. I wanted to try oatmeal cookies for a long time now because they are supposed to be and stay super soft and super chewy. And they where.

I made them exactly like the reicpe said but only baked them for 8 minutes. They came out super soft but they get harder by the time they cool so be aware of that.

One thing I would make different is the amount of sugar. It contains a lot of sugar and in my opinion it makes them a little too sweet. Not unbearable but for my taste a little too sweet.

Also the dark chocolate topping isn´t in the recipe but that is quick and easy made by melting it in your microwave (be sure to use couverture which is made for high temperatures otherwise your choclate will burn instead of melt).

Another awesome and super easy cookie recipe. Maybe you need a little sweet treat for the weekend and these cookies would be perfect.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

….

Happy Friday guys, 

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Post enthält Affiliate LInks-not sponsored)

I am finally getting back to my regular posting schedule. The holidays where crazy and wanted to cover so many Christmas themes. 

So for today´s recipe I rebuild a classic the way I like it most. The usual Piladelphia Cheesesteak Sandwich is made with another bread and some sauce and also red peppers. But I don´t lie red peppers at all.

Ingredients:

            – ciabatta bread
            – Provolone cheese
               – steak 
             – onions
              – green hot peppers

You can mix and match the ingredients however you liked but be sure to

– roast the onions

– melt the cheese

– roast the meat until medium

Enjoy your sandwich. It really is a delicious meal. All the flavours work together so great and the smoked note of the Provolone cheese completes all the flavors. 

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
