Cream Pies with Caramel Topping

I watched on TV a similar recipe from Jamie Oliver a few days ago. These pies are really very easy to make and they are delicious in taste. I added vanilla extract in the cream filling and I increased the baking time, since I found out that the puff pastry needed a bit more time to be baked than the original recipe.
Below you can find all the steps in making the recipe. I hope you like it…!

The recipe goes as follows:

Cream Pie with Caramel Topping, baked in oven

For the pies
425gr puff pastry (1 square sheet)
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbspcinnamon
For the filling
1 cup of fresh milk
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 tspvanilla extract

Kolokassi (A traditional Cypriot Dish)

According to my taste this is a delicious casserole meal.  According to my father's opinion, this is just something to fill in stomach.  I think its worth trying it…

Here are the ingredients and the method of preparation:

Ingredients 1. 1kg pork cubes 2. 1kg taro (kolokassi) 3. 5 sticks of celery, chopped
4. 2 large onions, finely chopped
5. 1 cup tomato juice
6. ½ a cup of hot water
7. Salt & pepper to taste
8. Greek Olive oil for frying
9. 1 tsp lemon juice

Preparation Method
- To prepare cut the ends of kolokassi and peel the skin.
- With a wet towel clean it. Never wash kolokasi with running water.
- With a sharp knife, cut across (2 cm thick) halfway then break off. Repeat to the end. Note: if slices are cut all the way across without breaking off, the vegetable will melt while cooking.
- Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and brown the meat (8 -10 minutes).
- Transfer onto a dish.
- Gently fry onion in olive oil until soft then add the kolokassi and celery.
- Fry all together for 5 - 1…
