Greek roasted vegetables (Briam)

This is one of the dishes I've discovered after I moved to Greece two years ago. When I came here I've started researching recipes and asking people about food their mothers used to make. I wanted to learn how to cook "greek" and bring some of the traditional tastes to my new greek home.
As I found out, briam is a variation of another greek dish called "tourlou", or at least this is how it functions in my cookbook now.
Briam acquires taste in time, so usually I make enough for 2-3 days - and basically we could eat it everyday for a week and won't get bored with it.

Chocolate birthday cake with mascarpone coffee cream

What would be a birthday without a proper cake?
As the day was getting near I've been thinking of some delicious treat to celebrate my significant other's birthday.
Since we both love chocolate the base was pretty clear, but I wanted to combine it with something slightly bitter, light and delicious so it came to mascarpone based coffee cream with slight addition
of cherry and apricot marmalade.
