Recipe: Leek and Cheese Quiche

Just for the fun of it, try saying the title of this post really fast ten times over:)

I've tried out this recipe yesterday evening with a friend and it turned out to be one of the most delicious things we have ever baked together. I highly recommend this recipe when you've really run out of all ideas and you're tired of meat-and-potatoes or pasta or salad-only meals. This quiche easily feeds four to six people, so make sure that you invite friends over for dinner:)

300 g flour
2 eggs
200 g softened butter
1 tsp salt

2 tablespoons butter
1 small sliced leek
50 g blue cheese
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
80 -100 g ordinary cheese, can be Swiss
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
4 eggs
200 ml heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix the ingredients for the crust in a large bowl by hand until you have a smooth dough. Form the dough into a ball and wrap in a silver foil. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 230 degrees Celsius (450 F).
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a big circle. Fit into fluted tart pan with a removable bottom and trim the edges. 
  4. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and saute the leeks until tender. Spread evenly over the bottom of the pie crust.
  5.  Beat together the eggs and heavy cream in a large bowl. Add the blue cheese, Parmesan and Swiss cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Spread over the leeks.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the heat to 165 degrees Celsius (325 F) and continue baking for 30 minutes, until the crust is lightly browned and a knife inserted in the center of the quiche comes out clean.

Bon appetit,

Blogger Meeting. Sort of.

The reason why I'm saying this is because Ema (left) is not technically a blogger. But she has a really cool Facebook page, Ema Bavcon Art, that you can check out and like. Ema gets and buys all kinds of vintage trinkets on her travels and flea markets and then she puts them together and-hello, you've got a new unique piece of jewelry.

We met for a cup of coffee to celebrate our successful giveaway we had hosted together in September. It was really fun just to chat with her about everything, from life to blogging, to makeup, because among other things, Ema is makeup artist for MUD cosmetics and that profession has always fascinated me. I mean, what woman doesn't enjoy speaking the delicious language of makeup?

Thank you Ema for hosting this giveaway with me, we have to do this again, it was fun:)

Vintage Photo #1

I have been rummaging through our old family albums and I found some crazy good photographs that I've decided to share with you guys. This is one of my favorite photos: the angle of the camera here is quite original, considering the fact that in the 1950s, most of the photographs were frontal.

If you take a closer look at the photo, you can see the interesting texture of the wooden surface of the canoe; isn't the used wood look incredibly beautiful? It gives such a wonderful rustic feel, I just want to run my fingers over it.

Also, I think that the girls (who are twin sisters by the way) wear really cute matching dresses, I don't know why, but it reminds me a bit of The Sound of Music:) I love that scene where the von Trapp children run out of that oppressing mansion into the streets of Salzburg in their matching playclothes singing the do-re-mi song. An unforgettable scene!

Hope you found this vintage photo as inspiring as I have:)

The Most Delicious Chocolate Cake Recipe

This chocolate cake is, take my word for it, the best cake in the world! I just can't get enough of it. And it's so easy to make! All my friends and family are always hungry for more:)

Luckily it's very filling, so you don't need to cut very large pieces;)

You'll need:
-cocoa powder, to dust
-125 g of butter
-375 g of high quality dark chocolate
-a cup of brown sugar (I actually used white and only half and it's just as good)
-1/4 cup of almond flour (if you don't have it, it's okay to use plain white flour)
-5 eggs
-2 tbs of milk
-1/4 cup of single cream
-vanilla essence
-baking paper
-silver foil
-baking pan with removable bottom

1. First, using a pastry brush or paper towel, brush softened butter evenly over the bottom of the pan, being careful not to leave any uncoated, shiny spots. Because this cake is very thick and fudgy, stick pieces of baking paper on the buttered edges of the baking pan like this:

2. Bring a small amount of water to the boil in a saucepan. Turn the heat down to a slow simmer. Place your heatproof bowl (I used an ordinary glass bowl) containing your chocolate and butter to snugly fit on top. The base of the bowl must not touch the simmering water. It is the heat of the steam that is used to melt the chocolate not the water. Stir the chocolatey-buttery mixture until melted. Turn the heat off.

3. Add two drops of vanilla essence, or more, depending on how strong it is, add the milk, the single cream, the sugar and the flour. Stir until smooth.

4. Wait till the batter cools down a bit, then add the eggs. Stir until smooth.

5. Bake for 40 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.

6. Wail till it cools down. Cover with silver foil and refrigerate for 2 hours.

7. Dust generously with cocoa powder.

TIP: Dip the knife into hot water before cutting this cake as it is very sticky!

Bon appetit, everybody!

Ljubljana Street Style #2

Taking pictures of what people are wearing is my favorite thing in the world. I totally get a kick out of it and it tends to last for days:) I get inspired, I meet new and interesting people, and I also have new material to work on for my blog:)

What I love about street style is that the clothes are worn by ordinary people, not by some bulimic airbrushed models you would come across in a gloss magazine. They look imperfect but they are also more real, and I feel I can relate to them more. I guess you could say they are perfectly imperfect:) which is what I love about street style. That is also the reason why I'm blogging about it.

So here are a few fashion tips from the streets of Ljubljana:

Mix two completely different patterns:
leopard print and stripes in this case.
