Well, many things have happened these past week. One too many doctors appointments, which are not going to end until maybe 2 weeks, I hope.. An unfortunate death in the family. My sweet uncle lost his battle against prostate cancer. My mother was a wreck and everybody felt sad for the whole situation and for seing her like that.

Anyway, it looks like we are going back to normal, slowly, whatever normal is. I have been working on a project for a web site and that has taken me some time away from my relaxing kitchen. But, I’m finding my way back. And while I was thinking what to do next, I remembered that I had some poppy sees left in my pantry. Instantly I started to crave poppy seed lemon muffins.

I don’t have [yet] my own recipe for these delicious pieces of heaven so I looked for one that it didn’t call for enormous amounts of flour, and this one was suitable for what I was looking for, even thought I tend to change the recipes a little here a little there, they turned out great. I know it’s in Spanish so let me know if you need me to translate it for you.

The Butter cream icing is one I’ve got from here. You can browse this website and find the one you want to try/like the most.

What a day..

I know I have been neglecting my blog and my blogroll friends as well, but I have been really busy.  Starting on  Thursday. It was “Teachers appreciation day” here in Argentina, yeah same day as 9/11, so while the rest of the world was grieving I was thinking how many years have gone by since that day and baking cupcakes for Victoria’s teachers. So my attention was pretty much everywhere. Specially because since we moved back to Argentina I have never made butter frosting here and you know elements are different anywhere you go, so I’ll have to be careful not to screw it up and I didn’t have a lot of time. But I’m glad to say that the 8 cupcakes that went to school that day turned out Great!! I’m really proud of myself, haha

And then in the afternoon she had a birthday party. And let me tell you that should go totally by itself on another post, because I want to make an affirmation here.  There are sometimes when even people talking on the same language have no idea what the other is saying…so I’ll leave it there for now…

On Friday my oldest sister (I need to make a post just about my family..you’ll be surprised) her 3 boy, me and my sweetie pie, went shopping to one of the biggest malls around. It huge!! It’s so finely design that everytime I leave I feel I still didn’t see everything..So I need to come back, ya know.

anyway, if there is one thing I love about my sister is that she enjoys food as much as I do, actually my two sisters do, so, after some shopping around we felt hungry enough to feed the children so there we went.

After so many years of cheeseburgers, they don’t enticed me no more.. so I look for more ethnic choices, I will try anything just once, except for something I need to add to my list of no-no’s. So, we ended up here and boy were we glad we did!! A little taste of gourmet France in your mouth, delicious, superb, exquisite, soft, super yummy, fresh…
My sis had 2 quiches, the girl can eat, one with smoked salmon and broccoli and the other with leek and Roquefort, amazing both. I had a Chiavarina (Sandwich) with meat, tomatoes, arugula and a really soft mayonnaise, it was also amazing. Followed by two tarts, fruits and chocolate. Do I really need to say anything else?
