Asparagus frittata. A good choice for any time.

  1. A few asparagus spears,
  2. Four eggs,
  3. A tablespoon of butter,
  4. A tablespoon of cream,
  5. Two tablespoons of  Parma cheese or Pecorino,
  6. Salt and pepper,

Blanch asparagus in lightly salted water for 1-2 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Whisk eggs in a bowl with cream and cheese and season with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook over low heat for 5-8 minutes, or until almost set. Place under a hot grill and cook until golden. Two portions. Yummy!

Sweet confiture from seasonal fruits. It’s so easy!

I promise a delicious addition to toast, pancakes and desserts in 15-20 minutes!

Buy more than usual seasonal fruits such as strawberries, cherries, raspberries, small plums or apricots. Remove the stones, if necessary, and cut fruits into smaller particles (except raspberries). Put straight into the medium-hot pan and stir. When they soften and release the juice, increase the heat and reduce the sauce. After a few minutes, add a few tablespoons of sugar to taste, stir and ready. Insert immediately into the scalded jars and close them.
The rule is simple, the less on the pan, the faster you reduce juice.

Pudding with wheat grits, elegant dessert or a quick breakfast?

I have tried both Arabic and Indian version and I have to admit that the dish tastes the best as my European grandma made it.

  1. Four or five tablespoons of wheat grits
  2. A cup of milk
  3. One tablespoon of butter
  4. Two tablespoons of cane sugar
  5. A bit of salt
  6. Jam or confiture, dried or fresh fruit, cinnamon

Heat the milk, add the wheat grits, sugar and butter. Carefully boil, stirring continuously, keep cooking like this for two or three minutes. Place the pudding on a plate, decorate with fruit or confiture. I like cinnamon and dates.
