Martina and I met each other during Fiesta Friday. I am not sure when’s the exact date, but I could not forget when she entered holding these Peach and Honey Mini Bundt Cakes and I immediately ran to her – to say ‘Hi’ of course… and okay… to take some of those gorgeous cakes first and foremost. 😀 Nope! I will not lie and I will not be ashamed to tell you that. 😛
I have heard so much of Martina [from the gossips] during FF, but they are good talks – one of them is that Martina loves to help people. I even remember those film crew people she had prepared lunch for – oh, what a kind-hearted she is.
For my second guest blogger, here’s Martina @ Make, Shake and Bake –
When Jhuls needed some help to cover her absence in September, I knew I was going to volunteer. Then you ought to know, Jhuls is a very special lady. She introduces “new bloggers” and shares tricks and tips about food and cooking weekly. I find that very admirable, then let’s be honest, who else would spend so much time to do such a lovely thing? So of course, I want to help if I can. My pleasure. 🙂
I decided to do some cooking for a change. I had a few weeks off work in August and plenty of time to not just bake but try some cooking for a change. I don’t feel quite at ease when I cook just yet. I guess baking is more natural to me. But when a recipe works, it is ever so pleasing and I felt this wasn’t bad at all. So I hope you all enjoy!
This is a huge batch and I froze over half of them. But they usually have even a better texture if you boil them from frozen. It keeps them more together.
I topped my Gnocchi’s with some fried zucchini, cherry tomatoes and basil, tossed together and topped with Parmesan (in case you were wondering. 🙂 )
Wow! You must have worked for too long for this, Martina. Where did you get the patience? 😀 I could see that this is an easy recipe, but time consuming. Gnocchi is just one of those recipes that I want to try. Thank you for sharing this to me and to everyone. Thank you for being my guest – I am so honored to have you and I am so grateful to you for helping me out. ❤
Enjoy this meal, lovely friends! 😉
