Plankstek a la Julia

Recept, Speak up! / Permalink / 0
Today was my first attempt of making a Plankstek. I used, as you can see, mashed potatos, fillet mignon, bacon, asparagus, tomato and once it was ready to eat, I poured some of Jensen's bearnaise sauce over it. Absolutely delicious!
 

Gambas al ajillo

Recept, Speak up! / Permalink / 0
This is one of my favorites from the Spanish cuisine! So simple to prepare and delicious to eat. Serve it with a piece of baguette to dip in the flavoured oil. Basically what you need is large shrimps, garlic, olive oil, a little bit of spanish pepper OR cayenne pepper and a bit of parsley to decorate it with when it's done. The only disadvantage of it is that you'll stink of garlic afterwards. But in my opinion, it's totally worth it! ;)
 

Peanutbutter cup

Recept, Speak up! / Permalink / 0
I've always had a thing for Reese's peanutbutter cups. Unfortunately, they're really expensive and therefore I also rarely buy them. The other night, I had insane cravings for these delicious thingies, so I decided to bake them myself. Why, OH WHY, haven't I done this before? It was so simple and it tasted exactly the same as Reese's.
What you need is peanutbutter (preferably some really creamy one), 200g milk chocolate (I guess you can do it with dark chocolate as well if you fancy that), icing sugar (you'll need as much so you can easily make a little ball of the peanutbutter without having it all over your hands, I think I had like 1dl) and mini cupcake cups.
So,  melt the chocolate. Put some chocolate in the bottom of the cups (not all of it since you'll need to cover the peanutbutter too!) and put them in the freezer for 10 minutes or so. Mix the peanutbutter and icing sugar while the chocolate is cooling. Put  a nice little ball on top of the cool chocolated, push it down a little, and finish off by covering it with some more chocolate. Let it cool in the fridge at least an hour before eating them. And voila! You've just made your own, ultradelicious own Reese's peanutbutter cups!
