Sweet potato quiche

Quiche is that one recipe that I love coming back to — it's easy to make, looks delicious and tastes heavenly :-) Plus, it allows me to come up with new fillings, which makes it very versatile!

Sweet potatoes are very smooth and creamy when boiled, then baked, and shallots add a crunchy texture. The combination of them is very mild and aromatic, so make sure you spice it up to your liking!

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.

Simple puff pastry

Do you remember these delightful ideas for folding puff pastry? This pastry dough is a miracle and the biggest accomplishment of French cooks. It's buttery in taste and fluffy, delicate and perfect for almost any baked recipe that is destined to impress. While this simple puff pastry is not as good as the original French recipe, it skips all that butter drama and difficulty, which will be a plus for less advanced cooks! Lightly knead the dough, let it rest in the refrigerator for some time and roll in one session.

Cinnamon rolls

This recipe is simply amazing — great right from the oven, delicious the next day and really easy to prepare. You can also upgrade it with nuts, raisins and whatever you like in your rolls.

Simple cookies

Day are shorter now, and the weather is colder as the autumn and winter approach, so it's a good idea to brighten your day with some crispy cookies!

This recipe is really easy and cutting out the cookies is much fun. And of course, then you're left with enormous amount of hot, aromatic cookies that you can share with friends and your close ones.

They are tasty while still hot, but will get better if you leave them on the counter for a day or two, because they will absorb some of the humidity, making them really delicate and delicious!
