Clementine marmalade

(2 jars)


20 clementines 
400 grams of  granulated sugar 
One lemon the juice

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Peel the clementines detach the quarters and cut them in half.

Place the fruit in a saucepan, add the sugar and sprinkle with lemon juice.
Split the vanilla pod in half in lengthwise and save the grains contained and embed the pod  directly to clementines and mix.
Bring to the boil, then make stew over medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring regulary until complete absorption of the juice.
Look is enough thick or let by 5 minutes more.
When cooked remove the vanilla pod and if you want give three shots-dipping blender to obtain a homogeneous texture.

(I don't used the blender  , only continue stirring the mixture all the time and when  I saw  the jam was a good texture turn it off.) But you can use if you prefer.

Lemon curd Ice cream (helado con crema de limon)

Really I love all  desserts  with lemon, for years my favorite dessert was Lemon pie (and still) and I saved this recipe for many weeks  
Finally I made some days ago.
Was amazing and all here loved so much.
This homemade no churn ice cream is perfectly smooth and creamy.
And the lemon curd make this a perfect dessert.

Adapted from  :Life tastes Good


4 servings

1 1/2 cup heavy cream chilled
3/4  can  sweetened condensed milk 
Lemon curd  (recipe below)


Make the lemon curd in advance and have it chilled and ready.
Chill your bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer about 15 minutes.
When is nicely chilled. add 1 1/2 cup of heavy cream to the bowl and whisk on high until soft peaks form.
Soft peaks are formed when you lift the whisk attachment out of the cream and it leaves a peak with the tip bending over. 
The time it takes to create soft peaks will vary depending on the speed of your mixer but would be only by onw or two minutes.

Then gently fold sweetened condensed milk to whipped cream until combined.
Carefully spoon 1/2 whipped cream mixture into a loaf pan. Top with several dollops of lemon curd and gently swirl with a knife.
Give it a taste and add more lemon curd as desired.
Spoon the rest of the whipped cream mixture into the loaf pan and top with several dollops of lemon curd. Again swirl the Lemon curd into the ice cream.
Give it a taste and add more lemon curd.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer until solid. (about 3 to 4 hours) Serve and enjoy.

Lemon curd

(I find amazing this recipe because is make in microwave)

1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup sugar
3 eggs beaten
1 tablespoon lemon zest

In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt 1/4 unsalted butter in the microwave (about 45 seconds). Add 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice, 3 eggs, 1 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon zest.
Whisk until ingredients are mixed.
Place the bowl in the microwave and cook on high power for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and whisk throughly. The mixture will still be thin, but the whisking is key so be sure to whisk after each heating.
Microwave again for 30 seconds and remove and whisk well.
Repeat this process 3 more times until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Once the mixture is thickened and creamy like custard allow it to cool.
When is cooled you can use or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Soufflé au fromage (Cheese souflee) Souflée de queso

I love soufflés  , but a long time I didn't make.

 Cheese  souffle was one  my mom usually  made at home and I loved.
I did it in individual portions because it is much better to serve everyone their portion!

They  are great for brunch, light night supper for two or as a versatile dish with a salad.

 Adapted  and translate from :  750 grammes (French site)


 (5 servings)

60 g   flour
50 cl milk
60 g of butter
salt and pepper 
grated nutmeg
6 egg yolks
6 egg whites
130 grams grated cheese 
(gruyere or cheddar)


Melt the butter in a saucepan. Once it is melted, add    flour, stir and cook for 2 -3 minutes over low heat. 
Stir occasionally.

Meanwhile, butter the molds with softened butter .
After  2-3 minutes pour the milk into the pan and stir.
 Increase a little fire and season with salt, pepper and grated nutmeg and stir.

Bring to a boil then remove from heat and stir vigorously.
Then put the pan on heat again for a minute while continuing to mix. Get out of the fire.
Add the grated cheese and egg yolks while stirring.
Put this mixture into a bowl.
Beat the egg whites  with a pinch of salt  until stiff but not dry.
Put half of whites in the preparation and mix gently .
This gesture will help keep the lightness of the whites.
Do the same with the second half of whites.

Preheat the oven to 180°c. (350F)
Turn the souffle mixture into the prepared ramekins 
Put the ramekins or molds over a baking sheet .
Bake 20-25 minutes or until the tops are puffed and centers appear set.
Serve inmediately.

I live in  Santiago, Chile but I live in the countryside about almost 10 years. Is about 1 hour from Santiago, Im married, and have twins a daugther and son and they are teenagers now.

2.Food photography tips or 2 useful kitchen tips.

I dont know, I read a lot about all so I love Pinterest where you can see a lot of pictures and recipes.

The light is all.
