Author: Aušra

Date:

Tomorrow is Monday… Lately half of Sunday I usually spend preparing meals for the coming week. And the best start of the week – a light and healthy lunch. These salads we prepared a few times and I can say that we like it with boiled raw buckwheat, but you can use what you have, or what you like more. Here I present you our version.

Mexican minced meat and bean chilli. Can be prepared very quickly. We were afraid that beans will blanket out other ingredients, but we were wrong and I am glad about that. We wanted something hot, and we got it 🙂

Cherry cake

Before baking this case, I couldn’t decide – it’s a cake or a pie. But when I baked it no questions were left – it’s really a cake and the good one. Crispy top, tender egg while layer and sour cherries makes very good combination. But if you are afraid of sour cherries, you can use preserved cherries. The next time egg white layer I will make smaller or will use bigger cake form (now I used 24cm). I know, the photos are horrible, but I had to do some photos in a rush, because I try to bake less sweets and the next time this cake will be baked after long time.

Pasta Puttanesca

Quick and easy dish. That’s what I need for supper. I liked that there is no cheese. But I don’t know about my hubby. He is the cheese lover, but eating this dish he didn’t mentioned cheese. So I don’t know he was satisfied with the meal or just tired repeating that he needs cheese 🙂 Any way – the dish is good and classic.

Raw buckwheat and sunflower porrigde with fruits

Let’s start this new year eating healty! Especially when it does not requires a lot of effort, it should not be difficult to prepare it. I really wanted to try raw buckwheat, and when I bought them for long time I could not decided what to do with them. When accedentally I discovered this recipe, quickly it was prepared for breakfast. And yes, at first you will be tired of chewing it, but I think it’s good because you will have to make time for eating. You can not put quickly this porridge in your stomach and go, you will have to sit, chew and think about your life – it takes time. Fruits can chosen according to your taste, but I like the kiwi and ginger combination and ripe bananas provide enough sweetness, so for me it has enough sweetness even without honey or agave syrup. But you can always choose your favourite fruits and adjust sweetness by your taste buds.

Pasta with cheese and tomatoes sauce

Author: Aušra Date: 2013-04-30 This pasta is very warming because of the chilli pepper, so if you eat with your kids, be ready to hear that it’s hot. My kids said so, but ate anyway …
