Tasty Bites with Homemade Anari/Ricotta Cheese (Gluten Free)

In my previous post I described how you can make the cheese.  Well, in this one you can find a delicious, light snack, very easy to make and gluten free!!

Although there is a list of ingredients in the recipe, the two main ingredients you need to have at home are Ricotta or Anari Cheese and eggs.  All the rest are herbs and spices.  You can omit the spices and herbs you don't like or add a few more...  Either way I am sure you will love every single bite of them!

  1. What a gorgeous snack! I love the way you've displayed these :)

  2. Wonderful snacks!
    I haven't had the chance to make the cheese yet (we have a big holiday coming - Passover....) but once I make the cheese, the next thing will be these snacks.
    I love cheese-snacks anyhow!! Very much so

  3. At first I thought this were sweet rice, but ricotto? WOW! Sounds delicious and you make it look mouthwatering with those gorgeous photos!

  4. Woah, best snack ever! I could definitely eat a bunch of these little beauties! :)

  5. These look delicious. I made something similar "anthotyro bites" a couple of years ago but since I did not add eggs I did not bake mine.

  6. Yummy snacks! Looks tasty & love the way you've presented them so elegantly! :)

  7. I just had a sesame-seed snack today, but it wasn't as good as this looks. I love the way you displayed the preparation method in pictures--and in such a compact way. I've been trying to perfect that technique but haven't mastered it yet. Big Kudos!

  8. Yummy cuties... :) And what a beautiful picture with leaves. I used to make my own farmers cheese that is very similar to Anari, and your posts inspired me to start doing it again.

"Κοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου" (από την Ήβη Λιακοπούλου)

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
