My story with “I Could Kill For Dessert” started when I was looking for a macaron recipe on the internet. I found the video in which Dani explained, with all her sweetness, how to make this recipe so temperamental, and passing it in such a didactic and fun way. Not only did I watch this video but everyone who was available at the time. I didn’t stop there, I went to test it of course, lol and to my surprise they all went super well !! Why did I say to my surprise? Because I am used to testing past recipes in other places and that only work there lol, and the result at home is disastrous!
Well … talk aside, I know that after that there was a big love affair between the site and me, because I couldn’t drop it for anything! If he needed a prescription … he would run to see if there was one; if not, (begged) for the face to see if Dani would post it for me! And it was like that, after some time communicating, participating in the live program … that I decided to make an indecent proposal to be able to be part of this wonderful story that I am so proud of, which is I Could Kill For Dessert.
Here I am today to present you with a super nice and relaxed place for any time of the day, where you have breakfast to Happy Hour. I thought of many known places in Rio to bring you, but wanting to get out of the conventional, I went to Santa Teresa, a place with one of the most wonderful views in Rio de Janeiro – because the most beautiful is seen from my city Niterói lol – which is famous for places with great gastronomy and cozy environments.
Cafecito1 My menu was focused on dessert, so I only ate the salty to taste the dessert lol but it’s super worth the salty, I’m eager to go back there and eat the smoked trout with red onion and a sauce that I only eat to know. In addition, I ate with great friends who they did the favor of being with me in this very difficult task: a gorgonzola cheese sandwich with finely chopped red onion and pepper jelly! Amazing… it combined it all in a super fresh and tasty ciabatta bread, and no less important and unforgettable was the cheese brie with a very high quality honey.
cafecito2 Finally, a slice of what I call it cake without topping, with nothing, but with a childhood flavor, apple with cinnamon and the grand finale was what we were super curious to know if the brownie with pepper jelly was good.
Guys … super easy to reproduce with the wonderful recipe for the “softest brownie I’ve ever eaten” by Dani and, for the jam, I will give my recipe that I use for everything when it comes to pepper jelly. But if you don’t want to have a job … stop by the Cafecito located at Rua Paschoal Carlos Magno, 121 in Santa Teresa, whose environment is all good! Hope you like it!
