The place I like best in this world is the kitchen. No matter where it is, no matter what kind, if it's a kitchen, if it's a place where they make food, it's fine with me. Ideally it should be well broken in. Lot's of tea towels, dry and immaculate. White tile catching the light (ting!ting!)...

And from my kitchen today, please, let me offer you a tiny cup (tazzina) of coffee and a paprika truffle.
This is also a nice idea to recicle all those cookie's crumbs in your jar or to finish that food angel cake, without whipped cream!

Chocolate truffle with paprika
1 cup of polverized cookies (or cake or...)
3/4 cup of cocoa powder
1 yolk
1tbs room temperature butter (maybe just a little more)
2tbs of sugar
1 shot of Grand Marnier or similar
a pinch of paprika
a pinch of cinnamon
a pinch of red cayenne pepper
1/2 pound semisweet chocolate

In a bowl mix together the sugar with the butter and the cocoa powder.
Then add the yolk, the cookies, the spices and the liquor.
With a teaspoon pick a little "dough" and give it a ball shape. Put those chocolate balls to chill in the fridge. In the mean time melt the semisweet chocolate in a double boiler (or in the microwave). Dip the trouffle in the chocolate and sprinkle it with a little paprika. Let them dry on a parchment paper.
Store them in a nice paper box and keep in the fridge.

With some flowers, could be a nice gift for "Mother's Day".
