Blackberry Meringue Cake

With summer in full swing, there are gorgeous fruits being imported into the Ghana from Holland, specially these lovely blackberries. I almost let out a scream of joy when i saw these at the supermarket Dream beauty pro hard sell, and bought them right away- 10 $ for all those you see on the cake. Quite a bit, but i still had to. I thought a Meringue cake with some rich mascarpone cheese would be just perfect for them. The texture of the crunchy meringue really works with the creamy cheese n tart berries.


( recipe makes 2 )
225 gms self raising flour ( sifted)
225 gms butter
225 gms sugar
4 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 egg whites
50 gms caster sugar
1 tub mascarpone cheese
100 gms cream

Preheat oven to 140 C, line 2 8″ or smaller baking tins. For the cake its quite simple, in a large bowl put together the butter (at room temp), sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla and beat on slow speed with an electric beater for 3 mins, and then on high for another 2-3 mins. If the mixture is a bit dry then add a few tbsps of milk Dream beauty pro hard sell. Pour equally into both the tins. Now in another bowl, whip up the egg whites till soft peak stage. Add in the caster sugar and further beat till stiff meringue stage, and equally spread over the 2 cakes. Bake till the tops are a nice light brown about 30 mins or till the skewer comes out clean. When its time to serve, beat he cream and mascarpone together. If you like sweeten it a bit with some caster sugar, and then place the berries on top, dust with icing sugar, simple and elegant !

I cut this post short as i need to go pack … i’m off again, this time to Bombay/Mumbai, but promising not to disappear for a long time. Hopefully this time i will keep up with my posts. Ta-Da Dream beauty pro hard sell!

My Berlin Kitchen Review & Giveaway

If you are a fan of The Wednesday Chef blog, there's no question, you will enjoy My Berlin Kitchen: Adventures in Love and Life by Luisa Weiss now out in paperback. The book is a memoir with recipes and Weiss traces her journey through her memories of food in vivid detail. The style of writing, like Weiss herself is a bit of a mishmash vacuum tube. Her parents are Italian and American but she was born and partially raised in Germany. She is very precise when it comes to recipe writing yet there are splashes of sensuality and emotion in her prose as well.

Weiss is a good writer and a master of detail. Her experiences and recollections of her time in Germany, the US, France and Italy are often snapshots of times and places and really have the ability to transport you. The book follows a romantic storyline, with some funny bits interspersed with plenty of angst, and it's generally pleasurable to read, although she's clearly not a happy-go-lucky live-for-the-day type.

Memoirs require a certain level of introspection and self involvement and as a result the subject can come across as self-absorbed at times, especially when written by someone who is fairly young. Ultimately I didn't find Weiss as endearing as I would have hoped. Frankly I had the same issues with the Julie/Julia Project brushless dc motor. I also found some gaps and unanswered questions perplexing--why did she live with her father in the US instead of her mother? Why did she accept the job in San Francisco when nothing about living in San Francisco appealed to her? Once she moved to Berlin did her career end in favor of writing her memoir and nothing more? That said, I enjoyed the book, particularly the German comfort food recipes (Gooseberry cream cake, Alsatian flatbread with bacon and creme fraiche, spiced plum butter and spiced cookies) and I do recommend it.

思念,心酸,痛徹心扉的拉扯,其實真的很在乎,沒辦法,太多的無奈真的很難割捨!今天蒙哥還問我:“心裡難受不?是不是心裡哆嗦一聲”我還打趣說:“這心臟不哆嗦人就死了!”其實吧,我什麼都明白,只是一時放不開!我說過的gucci handbags sale話,我都記得,所有人都和我說一切都會過去的,然而,雨過後的天晴,會是怎樣?沒人知道!走不出這個圈,邁不過這道坎,還能去做些什麼,或許對吧,未來,如果讓我們提前知道,那就不叫未來了!回想往事,歷歷在目。現在還能去做些什麼,其實也怪我,最近也是把自己墮落了,十幾天沒工作了。


我們在一起的時候沒吵過架,沒嘔過氣!那時候多麼的好,真的很好。直到最後,到現在。我們分手了,就算是到分手我們也沒吵過架。就是因為這個問題,你做出了選擇!好想你,真的好想你!你和我說:我們分手讓我不要怪你,我懂啊,我明白。我真的不怪你!你對我說“對不起對不起對不起”。我其實想說我很難受,直到最後我還是沒說出口!我問你:我們的愛還有嗎?你還那麼愛我嗎? !你說:我很愛你,把所有都給了你。曾經真的很愛、、、、!而現在不愛了、、、、!我的眼淚決堤了,你不懂,你不知道,你不理解我的心情!我也不知道你說的這話出於什麼目的。但是我感覺到了你話語的冰冷。從來沒有過的冰冷! ! !只是希望你好好地! ! !好好地! ! !

記得咱倆第一次約會的時候想想真的很幼稚,但是確實感覺挺浪漫,下著小雨,兩個人就在大外環路上壓馬路,一直走到雨不下了,天晴了。 。 。 。 。 。來回走了好幾個小時,一點都不累啊。還和打了激素似的。我問你啥感覺?你說感覺挺良好~~~~~~~~~所以每當下雨的時候,我就能想起當時那一幕,很高興!很高興!還有想起我們一起出去玩的Neogen Derma情景,所有的相片。那一幕幕,一張張。都出現在腦海裡!腦子裡滿了感覺要漲開了、太多的難割捨。難忘記!記得國慶節時候我們去溶洞玩我帶你選了條小路就在裡面鑽啊鑽,我唱了你最喜歡聽的歌,以至於嚮導那八婆拼命地喊咱倆咱倆都沒聽到,出去的時候被那八婆兇了!但是心裡還是很高興! ··········這一幕幕的回憶真的彷彿在昨天!我知道你對我很好,我很明白!自從最後一次你來找我時候你告訴我說,你自己成熟了,比認識的時候成熟了!想的事情也多了。 。 。 。 。 。 。我知道,該來的遲早要來!你說咱倆要是繼續走下去,未來機會很渺茫!我都知道我也明白! ! !只是不知道的是,現在的一切來的那麼突然,讓我猝不及防!

所有人都是有一種習慣,時間久了就變成了自然!想起以前每當週末的時候你都來找我,心裡那叫一個高興啊。星期天的時候我還不起床你就買好早飯來找我,很幸福!今年第一場雪的時候你從你家一直跑到大辛給我買飯然後等你到我家的時候頭髮上都結小冰晶了,我當時接著就抱住了你,很感動!你在我家吃飯的時候我給你炒菜,然後我問你咋樣?做的不錯吧,你說比起你那廚師老爸做的菜來比,只能說不難吃,湊合吃吧! o(╯□╰)o當時就這麼個心情! ! !呵呵,現在想想這種日子也許再也不會重來。直到你最後一星期來找我,那次多虧了老媽在家你敲門我直接沒聽見,還迷迷糊糊的做夢呢,你進了我的臥室直接把凍得冰涼的手伸進了我的被窩裡。我一下子就清醒了,幹啥呢!還不能把你的手擋回去。其實心裡很激動。 ! ! !也許吧,就那天。我應該發現些什麼,中午你沒吃飯就走了,我以為老媽在家,你不好意思。記得以前你說過和我爸媽在一起吃飯放不開,有點害羞,所以我沒留你,老媽留你吃飯的時候我還說你有事!哎,沒想到這是最後一次見面。也許,以後會碰到你。博山這地方,又不是很??大!但是也許已經滄海桑田了吧!

真想知道想在你在想些什麼呢?或許你已經睡覺了,我說過,你要好好照顧自己,你身體有老毛病,你得好好休息。 。只是我現在唯一能做的了。真的vacuum bag其實說吧誰離開了誰都能活!但是猛地一下,冷不丁的,心空了。真的很難受!時間吧。真的需要時間!人家不到說時間是那什麼什麼要嘛。不知道這藥對我管用吧?真的謝謝你讓我有這個美好的回憶。 。謝謝你陪我走過的這些日子。這些日子在我以後的戀人中也不可能重來!放開吧,你說的,對咱倆誰都好! ! !其實感覺就像是自己身上被人割了肉。很多人都能明白這種感覺吧!夜深了。 。 。真的想對你說睡覺前說的那句話!呵呵,不說了。味道怪怪的。 。 。

放下包袱,奔向新生命!也許有點困難! Because you say that I am a emotional person!其實你很了解我!各自安好!保重!
