Fresh Cheese Pancakes

Last weekend we woke up wanting to have pancakes for breakfast, so we set to work to prepare these with fresh cheese, which we saw in Isasaweis' blog and we loved the idea.

Ingredients for 6 units:
- 8.8 oz of fresh cheese
- 1 egg
- 2 heaped tablespoons of flour
- 1 splash of semi-skimmed milk
- Salt
- Olive oil

- Place the fresh cheese in a glass suitable for the blender and crush it.
- Add it to a large bowl along with the egg, the flour, a pinch of salt and the splash of milk.
- Mix well with some rods until you get a uniform and light dough.
- In a small skillet, pour a few drops of olive oil and, when hot, put half a ladle of the mixture and simmer until it sets.
- When it is golden, turn it over with a spatula and brown on the other side.

Bon appétit!

Welsh Rarebit in Crock Pot

This recipe is a typical snack of the United Kingdom for several centuries, there are many varieties, but we bring you the traditional one so that you can prepare it at home with a slow pot (in a normal pot it would also be very easy to make, but you should be looking the pot while cooking).

- 7 oz of cheddar cheese
- 1.5 tablespoons of old mustard
- 3.5 oz of toasted beer
- Ground white pepper
- Bread

- Grate the cheese or cut it into very small pieces.
- Place it in the bucket of the Crock Pot.
- Add the beer, mustard and a pinch of ground white pepper.
- Mix all ingredients well.
- Cook 1h and 30 minutes in HIGH.
- Cut the bread into slices and toast them until brown.
- Mix well so that the cheese is completely melted and served on toasted bread.

Bon appétit!

Ingredients for 4 units:

- Add the liquids to the large bowl and start mixing until you can no longer work it in the bowl.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the countertop and start kneading until the dough no longer sticks in your hands (about 5 minutes), since it will have gained elasticity.
- Sprinkle some flour through the bowl and place the dough inside.
- Cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit for a couple of hours (it will double its volume).

Zombie bones

This year we had not made yet a new recipe for Halloween, although last week we shared with you the best we had prepared for other years, which are equally original and fun, but you know that every year we like to prepare some different, and this year we have a very easy dessert.

- 5.3 oz of cookies
- 2.65 oz of butter
- 1 tablet of white chocolate special to melt

- In a chopper, crush the cookies until they are powder.
- Heat the butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until it melts completely.
- In a large bowl, carefully mix the butter and cookies until the cookies have been well impregnated.
- Make a bone with the mixture, you will get several depending on the size you want to make (we made a large one, the one in the photo, and several smaller ones).
- Place them on a plate on a sheet of baking paper, so we prevent them from sticking and it will be easier to take them later.
- Let them stand in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Heat the white chocolate over a low heat to the water bath (if you do not have a special container to do it, you can heat a little water in a saucepan and put a metallic bowl on top, placing the white chocolate inside) until it melts.
- Mix with the help of a rods to make sure it is completely melted.
- Place the bones on a rack and put a tray or large bowl under.
- Pour the liquid white chocolate over the bones, so that the leftover falls into the large bowl or tray and is not wasted.
- Let cool to room temperature and then in the refrigerator until serving time.

Bon appétit!

Roast Chicken in Crock Pot

Today we are going to prepare a delicious roast chicken in our slow cooker "Crock Pot", which you know that we have it recently and we do not stop cooking with it. The chicken is very good, very soft and tender, the only thing that is not as roasted as in the oven, it is more white, but the taste is much better. We do not have an oven, but if you have, you can finish the cooking by putting it 5 minutes on the grill to get it more brown.

- 1 whole chicken
- 1 large potato
- 1 onion
- 3.5 oz of white wine
- Salt
- Pepper
- Olive oil

- Wash the potato and peel it together with the onion.
- Cut the potato into slices of half a centimeter approximately.
- Cut the onion into julienne.
- Place a base with the potato slices in the pot and make another onion base on top.
- In a small bowl, mix a drizzle of olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper.
- With a kitchen brush, paint the chicken with the oil on both sides.
- Place the chicken inside the pot, with the breast facing up.
- Pour the white wine over the chicken.
- Cook for 6 hours at high temperature.

Bon appétit!
