Christmas recipe: Chocolate muffins with mascarpone cream

xmas

Dear and beloved readers, as the celebration marathon is just around the corner, I decided to share this AMAZING muffin recipe. Christmas, for me, is that time of year, when you want to spend time with your beloved ones: family and friends. It is that time of year when you forget bad things and you look ahead with hope and grace. Christmas is when you share the most delicious recipes, thus these muffins will fit perfectly to the twelve-dish Christmas Eve supper for dessert. So with all my hope, I am sharing one of my favorite chocolate muffin recipe, that my sister Liucija discovered recently.

First of all, this is the list what will you need for approximately 15 muffins (for the measurements I used 200 ml glass):

Muffin molds, 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of cocoa, 1 cup of milk, 2 eggs, 50 ml oil, 1,5 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt;

step2

1step

So what we should do with all of these ingredients? For the muffins: Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl, except eggs and salt.

step3

step5

step4

If you want to feel the chocolate pieces in muffins, chop the dark chocolate into little pieces and pour them into a bowl.

step7

Mix the eggs and salt with a mixer for about 5 minutes until they become dense and their volume increases 3 times.

step6

Pour the eggs into a bowl full of mixed ingredients and…

step8

MIX MIX MIX !!!!step9

The dough can be very liquid. Pour the dough into muffin molds with 2/3 ratio and put them into 180 degrees oven for about 30 minutes.

step10

While the muffins are heating up, it is time to make the magical MASCARPONE CREAM! What will you need for IT cream:

250 gr. mascarpone cheese, 250 ml. sour cream 35%, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 3 tablespoon sugar (or at your own taste of choice). Mix the sour cream with sugar and lemon juice, carefully incorporate it into mascarpone.

step11

Lets see how the muffins are doing…

step12

After approximately 30 minutes….

step13

Decorate cooled muffins with mascarpone cream in confectionery syringe and put some more decorations if you want…and…

step14

There you have it: Tasty chocolate muffins with mascarpone cream.

stepfinish

The warm muffins and refreshing mascarpone cream makes the ,,golden middle”: not too sweet and not too bitter. When the muffins are ready, you can make some tea, coffee or cocoa drink. Speaking about tea or coffee cups…another little thing that I want to share with you guys, is the most recent purchase from IKEA, home furnishing store. I am very happy for these two wonderful cups. The long neck of cup makes it very cozy to drink tea or coffee and the price is very affordable. There are three colors of cups: white, pink and nude. I grabbed pink and nude, because for my eyes, pink and nude looked very cool.

I DON’T NEED MY PAST TO BE IN MY PRESENT. Injekcija 2014

On December 10th, I rushed to the Nacionalinė Dailės Akademija to see the finalists for the upcoming Mados Infekcija fashion show. I am 38 weeks pregnant, and i should not stress, drive a car or walk too much, but the curiousity made me drive as fast as I can to this event. There, i met my friend Lithuanian blogger Absentta Gorelova (www.absentta.com) and other bloggers too. We were standing in the press zone for about two hours, and then we went to see the show.

1 2 3 13 111

The show was perfectly structured, the runway was compositioned unique and the aura of the show was amazing, although, not all of the collections were my ,,sense of style”. The show was divided into two parts of the runway show, thought, I had a change to see just the first of it: 7 collections. All of them were interesting, but my favourite was just one. A colletion by a Russian girl Rufina A. Lagutina is about a brave and valiant young women, radiating a good mood. She creates her own destiny and starts a game with her appearance.

4 5 6 7 8What I loved about this collection – COLORS and the style of clothing. It made me want to try the Russian designer clothes, and in my opinion, that is a key to a great designing – when other person wants to try their piece.

Another designer… I can not remember her name.. But what I really like is her first model and the coat.

9 10 11 12The major idea of this collection: each piece is different AND same. The words ,,I don’t need my past to be in my present” were the words of wisdom! That is also another reason why I LOVED this jacket so much.

So, taking everything into consideration, the very first part of collections (that i saw) were really inspiring and interesting to watch.. Some collections even made me cry because of the music picked and the main idea of the designer concept. If you were one of those, who saw all of the collections, you can guess WHICH designer made me cry… :) Looking forward to Mados Infekcija in March!

ADVANCED STYLE – Documentary on Aging with Fashion and Brilliance

advanted

So yesterday I was at pre-movie premiere (the premiere of this movie is today, friday, but i was at early premiere, that was yesterday) called ,,Advanced style”. In Lithuanian language it’s called ,,Amžinai Stilingos”. This movie was developed 5 years! How long! It was directed by Lina Plioplyte, a lithuanian woman. ,,Street style photographer Ari Seth Cohen and director Lina Plioplyte dive into the personal lives of New York City’s most fashionable women over 60. In an industry obsessed with youth, these older women dispel conventional ideas about beauty and aging and prove that with age comes grace, confidence, boldness, flair and new, unimagined opportunities for fame and fortune.” The trailer:

,,Advanced Style” was shown at Forum Cinemas Vingis in Vilnius, the movie duration was about 1 hour, and it was perfectly selected time for that kind of documentary movie. I did not get bored at any stage of the film. This movie caught my eye for the main reason – simplicity. A basic older women life and their world outlook on life in fashion is the main idea of the movie. I was fascinated by those older women manners, their outfits, the combination of different layers and patterns. In some ways, it may look a little ,,too much” of colors and different styles integrated into one outfit, but overall these women looked amazing. I loved their attitude, their sense of style. And in my mind I was telling myself: ,,this is how I will look after 50 years” :D

So overall, I highly recommend to see this movie to everyone. After seeing it, you only have positive minds for the upcoming day :)

Never stop dreaming, Amen.

Yes, I am pregnant and proud of it!

_DSC7930

There has been a lot of discussions about whether I put in the public eye or keep it to myself. After a month or two, I decided that YOLO (you only live once) and I immediately posted an instagram photo of me in the beach, holding my hands on the belly. After that post, I got a lot of questions like ,Are you pregnant? What is happening? How long?’ And so on. Even the total strangers had courage to ask me when I am giving birth, is it a boy or a girl and so on. And this part was so funny for me :)

After that, i just kept posting some photos of me, my belly, presents that i got for my baby and so on. It is such a fun activity, for real.

stuff

So the gynecologist guess is that I am expecting a BOY. But you never know who’s gonna pop out of ya… I have always told my girlfriends that if i had a child, the first would be a boy… so, lucky me! We got so much presents from our dear friends, family, we are all very excited for this new chapter of my life and everybody is waiting for him to arrive to this beautiful world.

My pregnancy, so far, was excellent. No pain, no morning sickness, no nothing. Just the belly growing and some kind of a monster kicking inside of me.. hehe :) I can tell you, that he is a strong one, he kicks to my ribs so hard, that i even feel the pain sometimes. But it is a good pain.

Today is the 35th week of my pregnancy, i gained almost 12 kg. My legs and my hands are as thin as I was before. And that is sad because I really wanted to gain a lot more then 12kg, i have always been the most thinnest girl in the entire world…Somehow, I feel more energetic then before. I can clean the house or have a photoshoot that lasts all day, or go to a trip. Every day I want to do something useful for me and my baby boy, and that is great, i think.. :)

The most incredible feeling so far is that every second you remember that you are carrying a new human being in you. The first feelings of the kicks or hiccups, the laughter when you feel your baby’s feet pass through the entire belly is priceless.

Malta |Marsaxlokk Bay

Marsaxlokk Bay It’s one of the five cities of ,,must see” list if you’re staying in Malta, a stunningly beautiful traditional town with a harbor full of traditional fishing boats.This place is so quiet, charming and colorful at the moment you see it! The view in the harbor is amazing, the smell of fish and the sound of the water makes you feel the highest relaxation level from all the year… Spend a couple of hours here to enjoy this charming place! And for sure,after a minute you just easily can’t past throughout all these lovely,cozy restaurants as well.IMG_9697IMG_9699IMG_9698

,,La Nostra Padrona”

We selected this restaurant from the dozen or so others by the side of the harbor for little other reason than the appealing colors of the table and chairs – orange and blue – I’m glad we did.We had been looking for somewhere to cool off and the air conditioned interior looked appealing. However, it was full of a coach load of tourists so we sat down by the water instead. With the breeze off the sea it was actually really rather nice.The staff were helpful and friendly.IMG_9661

Frutti di mare misto:Seafood platter consisting of mussels,clams,prawns,fazolari. Calmari and octopus cooked in garlic,white wine and herbs.

IMG_9658

‘A la Carte’ menu includes Mediterranean dishes, a selection of Fresh Meats and various specialities of the Chef.We ate fresh sea food,fish which is  delivered daily right from the boats, a selection of fresh fish and shellfish is always guaranteed.

IMG_9660IMG_9659

We also tried:Pepata di cozze|Sautéed black mussels,fresh pepper,garlic,tomato,white wine,lemon and fish broth.Spaghetti Marinara |Sardines,mussels,clams,Cray fish,baby squid,tomatoes and sage.

IMG_9662

And for the end i have a special secret for all of you!If you’re one of only who really appreciated this article and maybe in the middle of your heart you thought to visit Malta don’t pass throe eight or ninth kiosk on the main buss stop of Malta (Valletta bus station) the old women with the a small belly can serve you one of the best ,,Pastizzi and Qassatat”in Malta – Pastizzi are some of Malta’s favourite snacks and you can find stalls or bars that sell them everywhere. They are made of ricotta cheese or a green pea mixture stuffed inside pastry. Qassatat are almost the same, but made of a lighter pastry and round, instead of diamond-shaped. Take these two delicacies with you as you walk or drive in Malta.

    So as the Scot Adam’s said:“I love you all my readers like a fat kid loves cake!”

Scuba diving at Blue Lagoon.

    Dear readers, have you really thought that the first article about sunny Malta was the main experience i really wanted to tell you ? My second part  is full of activities,funny and of course delicious  moments of incredible  August week !

 So let’s begin IMG_9630

SCUBA DIVING

One of the best experiences of my life so far!.So we went all along the coast  and decided to  scuba dive which was the one big thing we wanted to do while staying in Malta. So we looked around and found some cozy place to start learning how to diving -Exiles bay.At the next day morning we took another bus and went to Comino island Blue lagoon…

IMG_9499  IMG_0616IMG_9707IMG_9549

BLUE LAGOON

First impression-terrible,offule ,discussing ..Too crowded, I was terrified about the idea that everyone was pissing in that water ..I felt like i wasted all day …But my friend kicked in my ass and pushed into a salty water and we plunged over the huge cliffs and finally we been alone among the sea..I even saw a jellyfish ! So after a long day there I think this is a very nice place to visit, if you’re properly informed.

IMG_9471IMG_9470

Situated between Malta and Gozo, the smaller island of Comino is a paradise for snorkelers, divers, windsurfers and ramblers.Only 3.5 square kilometers, Comino is car-free and apart from one hotel, is virtually uninhabited.The island’s main attraction is the Blue Lagoon. In summer, this sheltered inlet of shimmering aquamarine water over white sand is very popular with day-trippers.Comino is also worth a visit in winter, and is ideal for walkers and photographers. With no urban areas or cars on the island, one can easily smell the scent of wild thyme and other herbs.

IMG_9703IMG_9609IMG_9603IMG_9599

So, yes, it’s a beautiful lagoon, clearest waters ever, but there is no much activity going on. I understand many people are some what disappointed, but keep in mind that it’s the smallest of the Maltese Islands and it’s mostly rocky, so not much to do….

With the passion of traveling ……..
