Super Bowl Pizza.

At this point i would shout...GO COLTS...but...now i have to wear women underwear and pay a few bucks just cause the Saints decided to stomp indianapolis defense...but well...enjoy this home-simple nice pizza.

What you need.

Pizza Dough (oven preheated to 325 F)

-900g Flour
-21 g of yeast
-27 g of salt
-450 ml of water (aprox.)
-150 ml. olive oil.

You can make it the traditional way by mixing all the ingredientes in the "Volcano" shaped flour and start mixing all the ingredients together...

Or put it in the kitchen Aid and let it work the dough aprox 8 to twelve minutes...

-105g caramelized onion.
-150g fried bacon

Once the dough is done,you will add te caramelized onion and fried bacon to the dough and mix it all real good, you really want to distribute this into the dough, otherwise there will be parts of the pizza with AND without onion and bacon and you dont want this to happen,believe me...

Tomato sauce

-1 kg of fried cherry tomatoes.
-3 cloves of garlic
-Some cooking herbs (about 20 grs of basil,rosemary,thyme etc...your choice.)

Blend it all together!

Pizza topping.

-100 g Salami
-2 bell peppers(colors and flavor are your choice,i prefer 2 green peppers and a yellow one.)
-70g white petit mushrooms.
-350 parmesan or manchego cheese
-Some garlic

Once you got the pizza dough ready put it in a hot spot and let it fermentate for about 30 minutes or until the dough doubles the size. (see the size of the dough at the top of the post and look at the size of this one,it doubled its size in 25 minutes or so.)

Put some olive oil on a tray and with a rollpin extend the pizza dough and put it in the oven for about 15 minutes then take it out.

Pour the tomato sauce all over the pizza along with the mushrooms,peppers and cheese

Leave it in the oven for 45 minutes or until the dough is tender and crispy (325 F)

GO INDIANAPOLIS COL...oh...screw it...anyways...Bon appetit!

New york-espresso chessecake truffles.


De ahí, de esa alma que emana el brillo mortal atractivo sale la inspiración, son noches de agonía por una naturaleza simple y realmente estupida creación...tiene todo, me reta intelectual y sexualmente...

"Because the thing about love is that we can't control whether we get it, but we can control whether we give it."

Lisa Scotoline.

What you will to buy...
-5 8-oz. packages cream cheese at room temperature
-2 cups sugar
-¼ cup all-purpose flour
-¼ teaspoon salt
-5 large eggs
-2 egg yolks
-Vanilla pod
-¼ cup heavy cream
-Boiling water as needed
-1/2 double espresso (about 15 ml.)

- a pinch of salt


First you will beat the cream cheese to make that creamy
creamy texture and then you will add some sugar,beat it well to incorporate all the sugar in the cream cheese...

Then you will add the flour to the mix and beat a little more...

The twist
is the Espresso,just watch it cause if you "overdose" the espresso the flavor not only will be too overwhelming but the cheesecake will lose texture,you can counter this with a little flour...just watch it thats all.

After adding the eggs (one at a time)add a vanilla pod,a pod for crying out loud not that chemical thingy called vanilla extract.

Put the mixture on a springform man,cover it with some aluminum paper and put it on a waterbath (the waterbath will add a moist environment to the oven)

After and hour and a half insert a toothpick on the center,if the toothpick comes out clean its done otherwise leave it in.(the recipe took me about 1 hour and 45 minutes)

Heres a tip:after the cheesecake is ALMOST done,turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake in, the cheesecake will cool gradually...if you take the cheesecake out of the oven as soon it is done it will crack,leave it in the oven for about 2 hours and then onto the fridge the whole night mate...trust me

New york-espresso chessecake...

Once the cheesecake is cold,start making "pops",insert a lollipop stick and then put them in the freezer,the recipe makes about 60 lollipop sticks

Make a chocolate ganache and dip the cheesecake truffles,take em out (the temperatre of the freezed truffle will rapidly freeze the ganache.) and store in your fridge for about 2 days max.
