Chocolate Macarons with Mascarpone Cream and Salted Caramel

The first time I heard about that salt and sweet combo in desserts or sweets was in the 90’s sitcom “Friends” when Ross offers Phoebe a salt water taffy. Her reaction was “What the mother of crab is up with this stuff??? Oh god, is it a gum, food? What is the deal??? Oh, that’s nice… May I try the pink one?” And I was just thinking “Salt water what??? Taffy? Salty candies??? Ehhh!”. But on the other side, I was fascinated and it made me that curious that this scene stuck in my head over years. I mean I am talking about a sitcom from the 90’s and I still remember that scene! But unfortunately I never had the possibilty to try of that salt water taffy here in Germany.

If someone would ask me about the concept of this blog I could not find an exact answer, because i have not a real concept yet. Well, it is right that everything on this blog indicates it is going to be a food blog. But honestly i do not want to be comitted. It should be more a “everything that makes me happy”-blog. And standing in the kitchen (not all day of course ;-)) for cooking and baking is one of those things that makes me happy. I love to cut vegetables after work or whisk ingredients for cake on my weekend and leave all negativ thoughts behind me. It’s just relaxing for me…

Peach and Yogurt Mini Pavlovas

During the last few days I spent every free minute working on the blog layout and new logo. And I tell you I am a complete beginner at all that web stuff and have no idea about graphic design. Maybe you can imagine how much efford it took. But on the other side i am a little bit proud of myself, because before i start this new little project (an own blog) i could not believe that i can manage all those things by myself. Well, I was a little bit concerned about missing the right moment for posting the recipe for these fluffy and airy dessert (or cake?) named Pavlova. Because it’s allready September, Autumn is just ahead and meringue, peaches and yogurt somehow sounds summery, doesn’t it?
