Today I am going to explain how to prepare one of my favourite desserts, the cheesecake! There are different recipes, you can prepare a cheesecake using your oven or your fridge, I chose the oven recipe, it is the easiest cheesecake recipe.

Difficulty: Easy
Preparation time: 1 hour


250 grames Philadelphia cheese
3 natural yogurts (125 grames each one) 
3 eggs 
50 grames flour
150 grames sugar 
Butter for the mold


1. Pre-heat the oven at 175ºC.

2. Grease the cake tin with butter, sprinkle some flour and sugar around the cake tin and remove what does not stick to the butter. Keep the cake tin apart.

3. Mix in a bowl all the ingredients: cheese, yogurts (you can use a lemon or other flavour yougurt if you want), eggs, flour, sugar and beat it all with a hand-mixer until you get a homogeneus cream.

4. Pour the cream in the mold and put it in the oven. Let it cook for 30-45 minutes (it will depend on the thickness of the cake). If you see that it is getting brown, cover it with aluminium foil.

5. The cake will be ready when once you introduce a toothpick and it gets out clean.

6. When you take the cheesecake out of the oven, let it get cold and then put it in the fridge, there it is going to get the right texture.

And that's it! I like the cheesecake this way but, if you prefere it, you can serve it with some marmalade over it.

Enjoy it!

Vegetarian Moussaka

The moussaka is a tipical Greek dish with an intense flavour.
I have always like Moussaka but when I tried the vegetarian version I liked it even more! The way I explain here it's not the traditional one. It is prepared without bechamel, what makes it lighter but delicious!

Preparation time: 1 hour and a half
Difficulty: Easy

(For 4 persons)
1 Aubergine
1 Courgette
1 Onion
1 can 100 gr fried tomato
250 grames soft unripened cheese / Burgos cheese / or cottage cheese
50 grames grated Parmesan cheese
50 grames walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon oregano
A pinch of ground nutmeg
Olive oil


1. Cut the aubergine and the courgette in 1 centimeter slices. Put some salt over them and keep them this way for an hour so they give off the water.

2. Meanwhile, cut the onion. Put some olive oil in a pan and cook the onion until it gets ready.

3. Put the soft unripened cheese in a bowl with the oregano, cinnamon, a pinch of ground nutmeg, salt, pepper and a splash of oilve oil. Stir it until you get a homogeneous cream.

4. Crush the walnuts and add it to the mixture. Taste the mixture and if necessary, add salt and pepper. Keep it in the fridge.

5. Dry the aubergine and the courgette with kitchen towels. Fry it in a pan plenty of olive oil (or sunflower oil if you prefere it). When they are cooked dry the excess of oil with some kitchen towels. Add them some salt and pepper.

6. On a baking sheet put a coat of aubergine, another of fried tomato, then the onion, the cheese cream, the courgette and on top add some grated Parmesan cheese.

7. Before serve it, put it in the oven to gratiné the cheese.

Enjoy it! :)
