Caldas da Rainha, Portugal

Here it is sold a precious secret : sweet "little kisses" - "Beijinhos". It's a confection of flour and eggs, with a crunchy sugar covering, small ball shaped. :yum:

This reminds me of the upper streets of Asissi, where the tourists don't go.

lol that is one of the first words I learned...

actually.. beijinhos e abraços... :giggle:

I say that every night to André :)

And they sound yummy :)

That is so sweet! You are sweet! :hug:

Well, they are yummy (lots of sugar! :dohtwo: ) We have Cavacas and Trouxas too, these are Caldas da Rainha's special sweets! Cavacas are big Beijinhos and Trouxas are made with eggs and sugar [link] Although this recipe says it's easy to do, it isn't...I wanted to show you the photo ;)

Ohhh you are too kind! :giggle: Thank you...lol

they look so good.. the link actually looks citrusy... like it's made with oranges or something... I know André drinks uhm.. Sumol.. but see.. I thought it was a juice until he told me what he's drinking is like soda lol He says I'll love it though ^^

The sweets sound delightful though.. I'm very much looking forward to them for sure! ^^

Egil21 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2009
No they are not citrusy, just eggs (how do you call the yellow part?) and sugar, but they go very well with orange :)

Sumol is like erm... Fanta, but better :XD:

:iconrettemichbabe:
RetteMichBabe Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2009
oh no, I read the recipe, so I know they aren't... :) They just look like they would be. They remind me some of marmalade :)

The yellow part is the yolk ^^

Yeah he said it's like a million times better than Fanta..and I love fanta so it seems Sumol will be heaven to me ^__^

Yolk! This is a new word for me! :w00t:

I just love eggs! And we have many cakes and pastry only with sugar and eggs :P

Yay for new words! :)

Eggs are good.. I love them best either poached or soft boiled actually, though if they are fried I love them best cooked over easy.. this just means that you cook until the whites are just done, and then flip them gently for a moment more.... I love the yolks still runny with toast! ^^

I love sweets...I'm looking forward to tasting more of them ^^

Oh God, stop it, stop it! I'm drooling here!:drool:

I'm going to fry eggs right now! I'm going to eat and it's your fault! I'm going to eat the toast, ham and some French fries!!!
:ohmygod: And it's your fault!
