Cinnamon roll!

We don’t have Cinnabon roll in Italy and that is such a shame!!

Since I love them so much I Tried to make it. There are a lot of recipe on the website, but I choose this one

The only thing I did differently was to put half dose of sugar in the filling, I have to say it was the perfect choise since it’s already really sweet!

They were really good, the dough tasted the same than Cinnabon roll, the frosting was close to the original one, but the filling didn’t convince me….

The real one is more “creamy” inside, it seems like there is some chocolate….but I haven’t find any recipe with chocolate so i tought I was wrong…but next time I’ll melt a piece of chocolate with the butter and I’ll spread it all over the dough before adding the cinnaon/sugar thing.

What do you think?

broccoli risotto

I was studying when I realized I had only 20 minutes to prepare lunch….

So I’ve made this risotto with broccoli which came out so tasty, healty and easy do to!

Here is the recipe:

first of all you have to bring some water to boil into a saucepan and put in some broccoli cut into lenght

in the mean while chop some shallots and put into a pan with just a little of extravirgin olive oil (1tbsp or so)…cook until the shallots are softened (I use to add a little of water so I can avoid to use too much oil)

now you can add the rice and pan-toast it… add some  white wine and let it evaporate

ok, now you can add a little of the water  where  we were cooking the broccoli….once it evaporates, cover the rice with water as well as the broccoli …

ok, don’t touch it!! let just evaporate the water and when it’s almost done add 1 tbsp of turmeric , black and white pepper and some greated parmesan cheese…it will turn out so creamy…

Buon Appetito 😉
