Vacation time! Well, almost. This year we decided to relax a bit in Italy in the west coast. Good food, hopefully good weather, fun and relax. Those are at least my expectations. 2015 was so far pretty lame for me. I got fired, summer did not really come in Sweden: we are still fighting to have half a day around 20˚C. So, I really need some good time to boost my mood up! I am also trying to help myself: Maria suggested me to start baking. I am interested in a slightly different kind of sweets: pastry chef and patisserie. I have tried to do some macarons. I will post next time the results. I think that for a newbie, they are not so bad.
This time we have those very nice Blondies from Maria. I have to confess it was the first time I have ever eaten a blondie. I didn’t even know they existed. Brownies are very famous but blondies! Plus, the only blondie I have ever known and appreciated (apart women of course) was my sparkling, fresh, appealing beer. She always pleases you without asking anything back and never cheats on you (Word of Homer Simpson). Amen.
For me the blondies world was totally new, but you know me now: I like to try new things. So, in front of me there were “Blondies with White Chocolate Lime Sauce” and juicy, freshly picked, red strawberries.
The first question was: how to eat the whole thing? I tried with a bite of blondie. Well, nice texture, like the muffin one; it does not go in pieces, which is a plus for me but… so far, citing once more Mr. Simpsons was kind of booooring!! The flavour was good but not intense like a brownie: something was definitely missing.
Then, I tried the strawberries with the white chocolate sauce: excellent but we already know that strawberries and chocolate goes hand in hand. By the way, strawberries in this season in Sweden are S-U-P-E-R: they are exploding of flavour and you cannot stop eating them: they are like mature cherries, one leads to the other. Regarding the white chocolate sauce, I have to say that it was remarkably thick and creamy. It could lay very well on the tip of the spoon, just like Nutella does.Coming back to our dessert, shall we try one last approach? We don’t want to leave things undone, you may regret it! I decided to give a small bite to the brownie and eat a spoon of white chocolate lime sauce together: well, now we are talking! They complete each other. The chocolate sauce misses some nice solid texture and the blondies miss the flavour kick but together they are simply fitting. I declare you wife and husband! Hey, wait! We need witnesses to this marriage: the strawberries! Don’t fill the mouth eating a whole strawberry! Just bite half of it and it provide a fresh, fruity shift. Now, your mouth is ready for the honeymoon!
