Raspberry pie

There are chaotic days in which 24 hours seem a few in order to finish all of the tasks and then, there are the Sundays. Those Sundays in which the main word is slowness, in which you can regenerate your soul just thinking about yourself, concentrating just on what you  want to do without restrictions, without the clock ticking the time, without the phone disturbing the rest. those mornings in which you have breakfast in bed, with the soft breeze that filters through the windows and the morning fresh light that floods into the room.

A piece of pie, a cup of coffee, a fresh flower and Sunday starts like this… in a  slow way.

I leave you the recipe for this quick and super easy  pie  that, I’m sure, will win over you.


Ingredients for a spring pan size 20 cm

200 gr flour 00

100 gr  sugar

100 gr  butter of good quality cold from the fridge

2 yolks

1 orange or lemon peel

200 gr  raspberry jam (or your favourite taste)



  1. Mix flour and sugar. Form a hole in the middle and add the yolks, the butter in little pieces and the peel of the lemon. Mix the ingredients to combine them. Form a ball, cover it with a transparent wrap and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Put it in the spring pan. Turn the oven on on 180°. Take 2/3 of the dough, extend it in the mold creating a low shell. Perforate the dough with a fork.
  3. Add the jam.
  4. With the dough left and a rolling pin, prepare  little stripes to form the grating. (sometimes I prepare the pie excluding this part, the jam will be dryer but still good)
  5. Cook in the hot oven for about 25/30 minutes. The cooking  time varies according to the oven. When the crost on the edge becomes golden you can  take that out of the oven.
  6. Let the pie get cold on a grate before take it out of your pan.

You can taste this pie  as soon as it’s ready but also after some days (you can conserve for some days but only if you hide it in a safe place because as soon as you taste it it will be gone right away)



Tarte au chocolat fondent

For a special event you need a special cake.

I got my recipe from a foodblogger of mine I love the best : Enrica alias Chiarapassion.

Her amazing blog has tons of incredible repices and, when I need  surprising menu, I always go there.

My special occasion is Linda’s graduation after her year in an Americal high school. I wish I could have sat first raw with my eyes glistering with tears being a proud mum. She faced her wonderful and  sometimes difficult year acting with determitation, being brave, curious and finding beauty everywhere. She left her comfort zone to achieve her dreams. She learned so many things , she got a new amazing family, new friends, new culture, new way to look at things but, above all, she acquired new awareness : Your only limit is you.

A cup of tea, a slice of cake in front of a desktop admiring Linda’s graduation day : a new unforgettable memory time of this icredible 2016/2017.

Think Happy


Happy !

….but I’m gonna tell you about this in my next post.
