' Little kitchen - little grissini!

Little kitchen recipe for baking grissini!

Happy Friday little chefs!!!

Today we got something super easy, but super yummy for you! Grissini - they are Italian bread sticks...you might know them from Italian restaurants and they are really easy to make yourselves!

Ready?! Ready!!!


1 tsp dry yeast
250g flour
1/2 tsp salt
125ml lukewarm water
1 Tbs oil

Knead all the ingredients together and keep kneading for at least 5 minutes until your dough turns all soft and elastic. Put into a bowl, cover with a dry and clean dish towel and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.

Divide dough into 24 parts and roll them out into long and thin grissini. 

Place grissini on a tray lined with baking paper and brush them with water. You can optionally sprinkle them with parmesan or sesame seeds or anything else that comes to mind if you like.

Bake at 200°C for 15 minutes.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Monday everyone!

So, I had another little swap going on in which we were supposed to create a wee little beach/ocean themed dumpling pouch for our swap partner! Hooray - what a lovely summer theme, right?!

I made my dumpling using Mollie´s lovely little sea shell from the 50 States Stitching club, it was a perfect fit!

Here´s one side of the dumpling...

' Little kitchen egg roll!

Little kitchen recipe for making an egg roll!

Hello little chefs!!!

Its Friday again which means we will be cooking today! Hooray!!!

So let´s make some yummy egg roll, shall we?


We will need:

4 eggs
125g flour
500ml milk
salt and pepper 
ham for the topping (or whatever else you might fancy!)

Stir together eggs, flour and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Line a baking tin with baking paper and pour the batter in.

Bake at 200°C until the batter seems to puff up and starts to take a golden yellow color, this will take about 20 to 25 minutes depending on the oven.

Take the tin out of the oven - careful, it´s hot!!! - and put some slices of ham on top. You could totally use different toppings like tomatoes, tomato sauce, herbs, cheese, cream cheese...the sky is the limit!

Roll it up and enjoy!!!

Enjoy your lovely dish and have a great weekend!!!
