Gotta admit, me and oats was a tedious love. Me, a true Romanian that I am, couldn’t eat anything but eggs for breakfast and I still do sometimes. Not sure how many of you travelled to Romania but we do love eggs. They are that food staple that doesn’t ever miss from one’s fridge. And we love them so much we buy them in big packs, 40 eggs per pack or more. So yeah, me […]

Thank you Yotam Ottoloneghi for existing and for sharing this recipe with us, the humble world! As much as I love walnuts, my bf is allergic to it so I switched for a mix of pistachios and cashew nuts instead. The rest of the recipe is the same, maybe with a little bit more sugar and some added lemon juice in the filling because for some reason all of my ingredients were salty AF. Oh […]

I feel like this post needs to be bilingual (Romanian below, btw), mostly: because translating the name of it would be wrong (Moldavian martyrs – who wants to bake martyrs, right) because naming it in Romanian and presenting the recipe in English is wrong too. This recipe is a once-per-year type of recipe and we do it for the 9th of March. On 9th of March we celebrate 40 Christian martyrs who got persecuted for refusing to pray […]
