Welcome! This is the story of a kitchen passionate who loves to start her sunday mornings with homemade pancakes topped with loads of pure maple syrup. Simple recipes and quality fresh produce is what it takes to reach the happy result! My name is Elvira and I'll be cooking, baking, eating and taking pictures of what inspires me most. The idea is to chronicle recipe favorites taken here and there. I won't be making mine what comes from others, as credit goes where credit is due, so all sources will be cited. I hope you enjoy this blog, I'll try my best to keep it rolling!

QUARESIMALE Draw a slit down the middle, lengthwise, from ear to ear. Not all the way through but deep enough so that the bottom remains intact and the top opens to welcome fresh whipped cream. I warn you, it will be a messy affair no matter what. Unless yo...
