Dinner and Dessert! How many of you ladies cook home made meals at home? Well, I hope I'm not the only one! Besides having been trained to cook in school and having worked in a few kitchens I've always cooked at home or helped out with cooking. In the last year I've made so many yummy dishes at home by myself or with my boyfriend who also loves food and making it.
I decided I wanted a traditional lasagna with bechamel and lots of cheese and a tasty meat ragout inside! That I left to my boyfriend to take care of, while I made a lemon butter cake I saw on a blog!
|Home made Lasagna and lemon butter cake with glaze!|
|The meat ragout base! Made with mince beef, pork, canned tomatos, beef stock, wine, dried herbs, red onions, carrots and celery!|
|A creamy bechamel sauce made with roux (butter and flour), ricotta cheese and milk!|
|A layer of cheese of your choice!|
|A layer of instant pasta sheets! And then repeat!! Do the layers thin and do multiple layers!|
|The top layer should be meat, then 5-10 minutes before you want to take it out, cover the top with cheese and bake till golden!|
|Let it rest for at least 15-20 minutes so that it won't fall apart and then cut up and serve!|
|The finished beautiful but short lasagna! The dish was so big we only could do 3 layers!|
|Delicious baked pasta, tomato ragout bachamel and cheese!|
|My first lemon butter cake with a lemon glaze! I made this with a recipe off a blog!|
|The lemon glaze is made of icing sugar, grated lemon zest and lemon juice!|
|A yummy small slice of lemon butter cake for an after dinner dessert!|
|Dense, moist, tangy, buttery and sweet! I like cakes like this, I really don't like cream at all!|
|The cake is actually upside down! The top is on the bottom of the plate!|
|A photo with the lovely boyfriend with my first and very successful lemon butter cake! It was a super filling but yummy food night with the Lasagna and the cake!|
