Let's start by showing how they look like!

If you are looking for appetizers easy to prepare, that's what you should go for!!!

Ingredients: a round pizza dough, mozzarella cheese, black olives, tomato sauce, EVO oil, garlic, oregano and salt.
What really makes the difference (that's my opinion), is to prepare the sauce a good 15-20 minutes before using it.
I put the tomato sauce in a bowl, then added 2 soup spoons of EVO oil, 2 or 3 peeled garlic cloves (that you'll imperatively remove before seasoning the dough), 3 pinches of dried oregano and 1 small pinch of salt. I've mixed the all thing twice while preparing other things.

I cut the mozzarella in small cubes, pit the olives and cut them in pieces. I spread the sauce and added the mozzarella and olives on top. I rolled the pizza dough.

Cut 3 cm large slices...

...and put them in silicon moulds. To do this, I've rotated by 90°C each slice and opened-up the upper part. 
20 minutes in the oven (that I've pre-warmed @ 200°C) and they are ready to be eaten.

A quick guide to candle making 🕯️

Finally, temperature lowered and I managed to prepare a set of candles for this fall.
Candles are great for any occasion!
Halloween🎃, Xmas🎄, B-days🎂, romantic dinners🥂 or relaxing nights🌃. You can keep 'em for yourself or give them to family and friends as gifts!
If you've never made candles before, but you're eager to try, here you have 10 basic steps to follow.

This is not a comprehensive guide and does not pretend to be a candle-making course.

1) weigh the wax  Do you want to know more about waxes? Follow this LINK
2) Melt it in a double boiler (bain-marie). Stir every now and then...    ⚠ Do not boil the wax ⚠ Neverever place the container with the wax directly on the stove!
3)  At this point, you can add some color HERE, you have a post on candle dyes.

Remember: the final color of your candle depends on the wax too! For example, soy wax iswhite at room temperature and for this reason, it gives back pastel-like colors. A trick to check the final color: drip some melted wax on a…

Fire vibe soap: recipe, tricks and links to technical videos

I have mixed two techniques in order to obtain different patterns, one on the inside of the soap bar and one on the top.

Here you have the links to the original videos showing the techniques: 1) Tilted tiger stripe swirl 2) Multi-mica Taiwan swirl
Since I run out of castor oil, I had to modify the recipe shown in video 1) as follows  😅
Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
