This is supposed to be Cuca, also one of my mother's cat. She is very shy and sweet. Black is certainly not the color of her soul.

I wanted to show you the end result of my colorful notepads.
I was looking for notepads to write my ideas or dreams, and then I thought I could make them myself.
I painted 4 watercolors that I covered with a plastic film and then I stapled some paper in each one of them.
Hope you like them.
This is the first part of this post.

I remember that my mother used to make, every now and then, apple strudels when I was a child. They were so delicious we devoured them in a few minutes.
But apple strudels are not so easy to make because you need to work a lot kneading the layered pastry. So, recently she came up with another version of her apple strudel that it only takes about 30 minutes to make.
The secret for getting such a speedy strudel is to buy the layered (puff) pastry. You can get it at any supermarket. Below you can see a picture of the one I bought in Mercadona (Spain). You can buy layered pastry (hojaldre) that doesn't raise or the puff version.
You will need:
- 3 granny smith apples.
- Some raisins
- Some nuts (optional)
- One coffee spoon of ground cinammon
- 5 big spoons of sugar
- 80 grams of unsalted butter
- The juice of half an orange
- Baking paper
Start by peeling and slicing the apples. Fry them in a pan with the butter until brown, add the sugar, the raisins, nuts, ground cinammon, and the orange juice. Mix all the ingredients very well.
Place the fried apples on the pastry.
Roll the pastry around the fried apples. Make sure to press the two opposite edges so that the liquid can't come out.
This is a very important step. Wrap the strudel with the baking paper. Make sure you close the ends. This will make the pastry softer and delicious.
Bake for about 25 minutes. Electrical oven at around 200 Cº/392 Fº.

Every year, when spring comes, I'm surprised by these roses. They can stand cold and hot weather and they are always beautiful. Here you have them last year. They are special to me because they live in my garden.

I went yesterday to run some errands, and I found these two little treasures in a boutique. I like the necklace woman so much, it's so cute. And, the owl is a perfect key holder to put in my handbag. You can't lose it. Have a nice day!
