There is great news, friends – the number of spam messages on my blog has drastically increased recently, and I assume that means my blog is gradually growing. Haha. Sure, I’m kidding, but that’s a part of this exciting process, right? I remember the second week of running the Havoc when one night I saw 5 people being on the blog at the same time! I was so pumped! That’s okay that one of them was the admin – me – and 3 bots. The bots should be counted too:)

Have you ever had that embarrassing situation when you had the pictures and recipe to share with, but you couldn’t come up with an idea for your post? I mean it’s always a way to write something like: “Hello, World! Let me introduce to you a stunning dish. Pudding – Alice. Alice – Pudding“, and so on. That could work out indeed. But I’ll reserve this ploy for those sad days I run out any decent ideas at all.

Rhubarb Compote Greek Yogurt

Rhubarb Compote Greek Yogurt  | Havocinthekitchen.com

There are some foods you don’t particularly notice being a child or teen, but then, almost all at once, start to be obsessed with. My next food story is about gorgeous rhubarb, friends!

Being a child, we had a lot of rhubarb my parents used to grow in our summer cottage. I guess they might haven’t cultivated it – once planted rhubarb doesn’t need you attention. It just gradually conquers and annexes the surrounded territories. I could have enjoyed it during summer time if I had had any developed palate, but I just took it for granted. Perhaps it was the way too tart for a kid. My mom would make some kind of rhubarb drink and pies, and that were basically the only two things.  I don’t know what happened, but then for a number of years it disappeared from that garden and quite soon we wouldn’t have that cottage as well.

Chocolate lavender Glazed Cake Donuts. Revelations, part 2

Chocolate Lavender Cake Donuts (5)

Hello, World, and happy National Doughnut Day!

Indeed, I didn’t know about such a glorious day, but I was lucky to have some unpublished pictures. I haven’t made any donuts for 67 days and a couple of hours. Just saying :) I’m not going to be talking about these donuts any long because it’s the time for some new revelations.

It’s always interesting to me how people start cooking. In my case, everything seems to have started all of a sudden. At least I don’t remember any attempts to cook before that significant day.

Chicken, Mushrooms and Blue Cheese  (2)

I adore the book “Three Men in a Boat” by the English writer Jerome K. Jerome. It’s just a hilarious book, in my book (haha sorry for playing with the words). When I was a boy, I would read it over and over, sure the translated version. Unfortunately, I haven’t read it for a long time.
