Pumpkin Cheesecake

I’ve been wanting to make a pumpkin cheesecake since last year, but for any different reasons, I couldn’t, so finally, I made it. It was so delicious, definitely a keeper. I had many many recipes for this cheesecake, and wanted to try them all, but finally, I decided that the first test would go to Jamie’s recipe, althought I ended up changing it a little bit. And it was a great adventure, the oven caught on fire! Anyways, read more about this later in the post…..

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

So, you know me. I love soups, no matter what time of the year it is, I just love them. Anyways, so I looked for a creamy soup, that wouldn’t need a lot of cream or cream cheese or greasy stuff, but that used very little milk. And I also wanted something healthy, and I found Jessica‘s recipe and couldn’t resist. I swear, as she also did, it’s sooooo goood!!! And so comforting… anyways, give a try and tell me how do you like it!

Onion Soup

I’ve been craving for onion soup since months ago!!! And for any different reasons, I wasn’t able to make it before. So I made it, and believe me, it was delicious! I remember some years ago, my sister and I made one in our grandparents’ house, and we enjoyed it so much. Anyways, I checked many recipes and in the end, I decided to make my own recipe.

So, I used:

  • 1/2 stick butter 
  • 6 small onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup of red wine
  • 1 L beef broth
  • 4 bread slices
  • cheese mixes (Gruyere)
  • salt and pepper

In a large pot, melt the butter. 

Slice the onions.

Add chopped garlic, salt and pepper.

Cook until the onions are soft and caramelized, around half an hour. 

Add wine…

…and simmer until the wine reduces. 

Add the beef broth, simmer again and cook for 15 minutes. 

Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Place soup in ramekins and place them in a baking sheet.

With a drinking glass, cut circular (or any shape) pieces of toasted bread and top the ramekins with them.

Sprinkle slices with cheese. 

Broil until cheese melts and gets golden brown, around 5 minutes.
And enjoy!!!
