Świdnica, Poland

It wasn´t planed, but it was the nearest town in the area and we needed to get some cash from the ATMs.

Only as a stopover for some supermarket shopping or some lunch, otherwise forget about it.

Hotel review - Best Western Santakos Hotel, Kaunas, Lithuania

Never, ever, again.

We staid because of the high review marks received on, but reality has nothing to do with the pictures they put on the site.

First, they gave us a very old room with two small beds located in two separate chambers.
Then, we changed the room and they gave us another one (as old as our grandmother, no joking).

The facilities: the cold water didn´t work at the sink and the signs for cold and hot water were reversed.

The breakfast: pathetic. I couldn´t eat anything. The fresh cheese was old and had a bad odor, the fried eggs - the same story. Pastries a disaster as well.

Free internet connection and free parking places.

Honey biscuits with jam - recipe (step-by-step photos)

Ingredients for 20-25 biscuits:
  • 300 grams of flour
  • 90 grams of honey
  • 60 grams of sugar
  • 60 grams of butter
  • 1 egg
  • a pinch of baking powder
  • a bit of a lemon zest
  • jam for the filling

Melt the sugar with the butter and the honey over a slow fire. Then let the mixture cool for a bit.

Separately mix the flour with the lemon zest and the baking powder.

Add the liquid butter/sugar/honey composition and the beaten egg. Mix well until you obtain a non sticky dough

Divide the dough in two equal parts and put it in the fridge for one hour.

After one hour, spread one part of the dough on the table and cut your biscuits.

The biscuits will have two layers: the base layer on which you can put some jam in the middle, and the top layer which will have a small hole in the middle.

Now, put the biscuits in an oven tray covered with baking paper and let them in the preheated oven at 170 Celsius degrees for 10-12 minutes.

They are excellent in the morning with a coup of tea, milk or coffee.
