Celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary!

This week we are celebrating our 3rd year wedding anniversary. My husband loves pizzas, sandwiches, cakes, ice-creams, and other sweet treats. So, this is what I prepared for him!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

Artichokes, pesto, prosciutto, and arugula pizza

Boston Cream Pie

I made everything from scratch: two layers of cake, pasty cream, chocolate ganache

Artichokes, arugula, prosciutto, cheddar, parmesan pizza with chili oil

I served the Boston Cream Pie with sea salt, chocolate ganache, chocolate sorbet and sauce!

Whole Wheat Penne with Green Beans, Roasted Red Peppers, and Fresh Herbs Salad

Sour cream Coffecake Muffins with Pecans and Brown Sugar

Butter lettuce and avocado salad with herbed goat cheese scoop

Salmon-panko cakes over sage-rice with yogurt-chives aioli

When it is rhubarb season, I love to bake this rhubarb cake with pecans :)

Rhubarb cake is moist, nutty, sweet, and sour at the same time. Delicious!

Bibb Lettuc and Avocado Salad with Ciabatta bread and Herbed Goat Cheese

Same salad, different presentation!

To make the cheese scoop, combine parsley, chives, salt, and pepper with goat cheese

If you add fresh lettuce leaves to the salmon cakes dinner, it becomes so much better!

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomatoes Pan Sauce over Casarecce with Parm Frico

The sauce is made with white wine. The acidity is balanced by the parmesan waffle!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Muffins, before baking!

Goat Cheese Muffins. They were so tasty, like mini corn breads!

My husband loved these cheesy muffins. I served them with soups and salads all week long!

The second time, I served the pork chop in a pasta bowl. All the juices were captured by the casarecce :)

I made mayonnaise from scratch and served potato wedges in a glass.

Our favorite pizza: roasted shallots, mushrooms, and prosciutto on a whole wheat crust.

Sugar snap peas risotto is the best ever. Sweet and crunchy, perfect complement to salty salmon cakes!

Plum preserves roll cake! The preserves were made by my grandparents few years ago...

I use my silicon mat to bake Mexican Chocolate Cookies

These cookies have cinnamon, black and red pepper in them!

A perfect afternoon snack: 2 cookies and a cup of cappuccino.

Sweet corn and summer squash soup. A velvety delight.

Sweet corn soup is great with goat cheese muffins!

Make your own pizza night. Mine is fresh tomato, mozza, feta, kalamata, chicken, basil!

His pizza is tomato sauce, homemade pork chorizo, parm, and cheddar cheeses!

Making Classic Walnut Boule

My French boule after it is baked: so nutty, soft, and slightly sweet!
