Chorizo with potatoes

This is a quick and easy Spanish dish which has the taste of Pimentón which blends so well with the garlic aroma and the potatoes. For more spicyness I usually sprinkle some hot fresh pepper slices above. Other tasty dishes with Chorizo I prepare often are Fried prawns with Chorizo and Pizza with Chorizo, prawns and Mozarella.

Crunchy buttery cookies with chocolate chunks

Crunchy buttery cookies
These cookies are crunchy. And buttery. And salty. And all this makes the chocolate even more obvious and tasty. The recipe yields 8 cookies and this is the place I saw it.

Peach tart with fresh peaches and apricot jam

The recipe for this tart is from Marco Canora's book Salt to taste. This is one of the best cookbooks I have. The Italian-style recipes represent home cooking at its best, but the thing I like most about this book is that it sounds like a bunch of advices how to do everything in the best possible way. 
This tart is light, fruity and very fresh.

Fried roasted peppers with tomato sauce

Fried roasted peppers with tomato sauce
This light vegetarian dish is very common in Bulgarian homes at the beginning of autumn. The sweet taste of roasted red peppers, the spicyness from the garlic and the freshness of the rape tomatoes make it one of my favorites for October.
