Sesame candy

I put a star on this recipe long time ago in Google Reader, but only Tasty weeks encouraged me to try to make my first candy 🙂 They were delicious – disappeared in a few minutes (maybe because I make only a quarter the recipe). Nice! 🙂 Tomorrow I have to look for another candy recipe. And meanwhile I can say that these candies are like kozinaki with a mild flavour of honey. And they are not very hard (in a fridge they became crunchy).

Sesame candy

Time needed:
Yields: 30 candies
Calories: 85 kcal / candy

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsps. black sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (I used white sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

  • Prepare two baking sheets (The source recommends to butter them, but I didn’t do that).
  • In a large skillet toast the sesame seeds on medium heat until golden and aromatic (Caution, they get burned very quickly if not stirring).If using both light and dark sesame seeds, toast them separately so the changing color is more obvious. Set aside.
  • In the same skillet, mix the remaining ingredients.
  • Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring continuously, then let boil for 2 minutes, still stirring.
  • Remove from heat. Working quickly, stir seeds into the sugar mixture.
  • Transfer immediately to the baking sheet, cover with another baking sheet then using rolling pin make thin, even pieces. Let cool a little bit.
  • Take off the top baking sheet and cut with a knife in desired shape candies.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Store in layers separated by wax paper.
  • Enjoy!

Edible playdough

My kids like to play with homemade playdough. Every weekend they play in the kitchen while I’m preparing something tasty. But one time when I saw my kids sitting and smiling with green mouths, I understood that something was wrong 🙂 So I made decision – prepare edible playdough. The recipes was selected long time ago, but time to prepare it came only now. It’s very easy to make and tasty to eat – if you like peanuts and sweetness. But don’t do my mistake, don’t prepare full amount, devide in half or even more. We ate a lot, but it still is on my pantry. Now it hardened, but we break some chunks and eat like candies. After a great play you can make small balls and dip in the melted chocolate – and you will have great candies.

It’s a very quick dessert or snack. It’s my style 🙂 And the ingredients are only a few. But it’s a pity that in Lithuania we can’t find puffed rice, only in Poland…

Healthy oat cookies

I didn’t even imagined that they can be so popular 🙂 I just wanted to bake some cookies 🙂 But unexpectedly my coworker asked for the recipe and one guy (who also tasted these cookies) even a few times repeated that they are really good 🙂 What could I want more? Only that you tried them 🙂 It’s really easy but so good!

Sesame chicken with garlic sauce

Easily prepared chicken with a mild taste of sesame. My family liked it. Just don’t make mistake like me – don’t fry chicken on a very high heat – it burns very quickly 🙂 But chicken was good – baked but not overbaked, tender and juicy. And the garlic sauce is very easy, but my hubby liked it a lot 🙂 As always in my family – the easier the dish, the better my family evaluates it.

Bread sticks with paprika and sesame

Very good snack. Kids came from the kinder-garden and ate only these sticks till none was left. I had to hide some for photo session. I baked them already two times. The first time I rolled sticks in sesame seeds, but the next day I had joy cleaning all house with vacuum-cleaner from the seeds 🙂 The next time I put sesame seeds inside the dough and it was more practical and the taste didn’t differ very much.
