Welcome to my small little world of sweet treats. Passionate about baking cakes, cupcakes, truffles and eating them too! Having being exposed to such wonderful home-made treats from a very young age, I hope to bring across my passion and love for baking and creating new recipes through this site. All in all, this will focus on fun as well as healthy baking, decorating and everything else creative (could include my love for painting/sketching as well, so I could divert a little from my blog's title :)). Thanks for visiting!

Tortilla de Patatas (Spanish omelette)

Tortilla de patatas (Potatoes omelette). We first tried this in a tapas bar in Granada, Spain. It was refreshing, I have to admit the potatoes really blended well with the eggs. And we had it as a sandwich with a nice refreshing tomato mayonnaise sauce. It was yummy and hence worth a try! Hope you all enjoy this easy recipe!

Serves around 4 people

3 eggs mixed in with chicken/vegetable stock
1 large onion, finely chopped up
1 potato, either shred it into long pieces like what I did or into nice thin rounds (the latter is better)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cilantro for garnishing
Low fat mayonnaise and ketchup sauce for dipping

Saute the potatoes on low flame till it loses it's starchiness and starts to brown a little

Beat in eggs and chicken stock and to that, add salt and pepper

Add in the onions and cook till they brown slightly

Beat the eggs and stock mixture!
Let the tortilla cook on both sides just like a regular omelette. Fear not, it'll turn out fine and will be edible!

A few pictures from my vegetable and herb garden, something that has kept me busy the last couple of  weeks and explains me missing out on the blogging.

See I got distracted a bit, these little babies of mine do make me forget everything else. Anyways, another picture of the tortilla de patatas garnished with fresh cilantro. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
