Print this pagePrint this page

As I currently have a little time, I had been looking on the web yesterday. Looking for new, exciting ideas, inspirational meals that I have never tested before, to treat my loved ones with. Searching for quite some time yet couldn't come across any interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I found this delicious and simple treat simply by luck at ambitiouskitchen. The dessert seemed so delightful on its photo, that called for immediate action.
It absolutely was simple enough to imagine how it's made, how it tastes and just how much my hubby might want it. Mind you, it is extremely simple to please him in terms of treats. Anyway, I visited the webpage and followed the simple instuctions that had been accompanied by impressive graphics of the method. It really makes life much easier. I can suppose it's a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots in the midst of baking in the kitchen because you typically have sticky hands therefore i sincerely appreciate the time and effort she put in for making this blogpost .
With that in mind I'm encouraged presenting my own recipe in the same way. Thanks for the idea.
I had been tweaking the main recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I have to mention it had been an incredible success. They prized the flavour, the structure and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the middle of a stressful week. They quite simply demanded more, a lot more. Hence next time I'm not going to commit the same mistake. I'm likely to multiply the quantity to make them happy.

Ensaladilla Rusa is a Spanish potato salad served as a tapa through the entire country of Spain.
Ever since I will remember, whenever we would visit Spain, my Abuela Rora would have a spread of our favorite foods made for us upon arrival. It always consisted of fresh baked bread, Spanish chorizo sausage, jamon serrano, olives, and ensaladilla rusa. She'd also pick up a few 8oz bottles of coca-cola and one American" she thought we'd enjoy. 12 months it was ketchup - another, salsa.
We never did actually use the condiments in Spain but since she had heard that children from the states enjoyed them she ensured we had them. Isn't she sweet? Yes, I love her.
My Abuela Rora makes the best ensaladilla rusa. Creamy and silky from homemade mayonnaise and sweet and tender from cooked carrots and fresh from the plaza peas.
When I was 11 years old I sat down with my Abuela Rora to write down her recipe (as most useful as we could since she doesn't use measurements) on the back page of my cruzada (crossword book). It's one of my most treasured books that I still have today as it has my Abuela's recipe and holds a sweet memory.
With my last sweet sugar snap peas, I decided to utilize them to make her recipe.
It never seems to taste as luxurious since it does in Spain, however , it's still irresistible plus one of the best summer salads.
