Easy Christmas baking ideas

Christmas is knocking at the door and we are all searching for easy baking ideas, so we can impress our guests, but also have fun.  Grab your friend or mother and get in the mood to start baking for Christmas, while being creative in the kitchen. Nothing can replace the scent of something baked in the oven, meanwhile you are having great moments with your dear ones. I have 2 recipes for you, an easy one and one more advanced done at John Baker ltd.
This first one involves a lot of flour so the cookies can keep their shape.

You can use Christmas shaped cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the dough or DIY by drawing your desired shape on a paper.
Mix the following ingredients:

♥ 150 gr melted butter
♥ 150 gr powdersugar
♥ 3 eggs ( 2 eggs for dough, one for decorating)
♥ 2 tablespoons honey
♥ 2 teaspoons baking soda
♥ For an intense flavor you can add winter mix ( e.g the one for mulled wine) or marzipan

♥Decorating sugar, for topping, optional

♥ Sprinkles, for topping, optional

PS: first whisk white eggs with sugar, then add the yolk and the rest of them.
When the mixture is homogeneous, add 500 g flour. Before decorating, you need to put a bit of yolk on each cookie, so that the decoration doesn’t fall.

Position oven racks in the top and bottom thirds of the oven and preheat to 175°C. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.Bake until the cookies become golden brown on the bottom,  about 10 to 12 minutes and then let them cool down.

I’d love to hear in the comments: what cookie recipe do you enjoy the most during Christmas season??

Essie Polish is one of the best nail polishes for my long, natural nails, which comes in amazing vibrant colors.  Check my Instagram Stories every day, so you can discover what’s hidden behind the other doors.

Chinese chicken in your kitchen

It’s Sunday and you don’t know what to cook? I have THE SOLUTION as I have a strong affinity for cooking and…eating. The talent isn’t heritage from my parents, even though dad inspired me about this recipe. The human need for eating helped me in discovering how much I enjoy spending time in kitchen.

Because my followers from InstaStory went crazy, while I was cooking, I have this delicious recipe of Chinese food.

You need:

-Chicken breast(400g)

-Vegetables (carrots, pepper, mushrooms, onion)

-2/3 tablespoons soy sauce

-2 egg

-rice

-condiments(salt, pepper,)

  1.  Cut the chicken into small pieces, put soy sauce, condiments and leave it to marinate for around 15-20 minutes
  2. Julienne the veggies (slice into thin strips).
  3. Cook rice following package directions. Set aside. Cover to keep warm. While rice is cooking, make veggie and chicken mixture.
  4. In a pan add  chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly browned and starting to cook through, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add chopped veggies one by one (last ones mushrooms) Stir frequently. Cook until veggies are tender and chicken is completely cooked but not dry, about 5–7 minutes.
  6. Add soy sauce mixture. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer until sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  7.  In a saucepan crack in eggs, stirring quickly to scramble eggs and then add the rice.
  8. Place the rice in the middle of the plate and then the chicken with veggies.
  9. Eat and congratulate me for sharing with you this recipe. If you please, send me your result 🙂
