Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Finally it is apple-time again! You might recognize that I am just ignoring the fact that apples can be bought and eaten all over the year, but during fall they definetely taste best. That is why I am always looking for new recipes which involve apples. There are so many possibilities, no matter if pastry, cakes, chutney, juices, etc.. So there are no limits to the imagination. A few weeks ago I found a recipe for apple muffins and I was immediately on fire. I have never prepared muffins with apples before, and as I already planned to bake something to bring to work on the occasion of my birthday, these muffins were just perfect for that.

Tomato Tart with Creamy Balsamico

Today’s tomato tart recipe can almost be categorized as fast food. Not because of its ingredients, but because of the minimum in time that it takes to prepare it.

If you used handmade puff pastry, nobody wouls even think about naming it fast food, as it takes several days to prepare puff pastry on one’s own. Till now I’ve only made good experiences with store-bought puff pastry, it works well as well for savory as for sweet recipes. Beside the puff pastry, you’ll need only 4 ingredients to prepare the tomato tarts. The preparation is very easy and fast which is why I decided to make them last week when I had not much time for cooking. Warming these tarts up on the next day also works very well, so I usually take the rest to work.
