Knedlje from Croatia (plum filled)

2 Oct

Is this a dessert or a savoury delicacy? Well it’s up to you to decide! My mom’s friend, Zorica Made these delectable delights yes today at her home.She called me and asked me to come over to try a few.To my udder delight, I was blessed with delicious tasting Croatian morsels of knedlje!

These can be a dessert if you drizzle organic maple syrup all over them. Zorica liked putting organic cane crystals on top.She showed me a more savoury way of eating them too. She put a dollop of sour cream on top with the maple syrup which gave it a sweet and savoury taste.

Mango Cake with Passion Fruit Cream

28 Mar

This piece of cake was given to me.  The mango pieces and syrup and passion fruit cream was also given to me. So I cut the cake into a square then drizzled the mango pieces and syrup on top of the cake. Then I carefully put a dollop of passion fruit cream on top. Then another friend suggested a garnish of mint! So needless to say this was a community effort well worth it.
