Crepes filled with brinza cheese

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, and it seems, if I had no kids, I could forget it. But not now, because my kids already said what pancakes I should bake for their school. And as always my mind is busy about ideas what I could make tasty to feed my family. These crepes takes it all – they are very delicious and very satisfying. And everything in preparation is very simple and clear. But every time I prepare them, all just start to fight for them. For me, it gives a lot of pleasure. Since it is very tasty, it is difficult to stop eating them, so I make them not very often but during Mardi Gras you really can treat yourself.

Pumpkin granola with chocolate chunks

Usually I make granola in summer, when it’s hot outside and no one wants to eat porridge. But when last week I tried new recipe for granola bars and I had only crumbs, my kids ate it just like usual granola for breakfast. And then they asked to make more granola. So I make my favourite at this moment granola. Kids’ favourite granola will have to wait a little bit. They enjoy this granola too, just for them I had to add chocolate with more sugar.

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.

Cottage cheese and corn flour pancakes

Last year for Christmas I bought the book Wheat belly, and I liked it so much that in January I didn’t give my family any wheat. At first it as very strange, unusual, but then we got used to it very quickly. But what I liked most – this gave me a kick to look for something new. That’s how I found these pancakes and this year we made them not once or twice. Sometimes I bake them as usual pancakes, sometimes in waffle iron. Both ways we like them. Every time these pancakes comes out very fluffy and light. And they spread in a pan a lot, so make space for them. And if you like to eat pancakes without any add-ons, I suggest to add a little bit more sugar or pour over them some tasty syrup.

Pizza waffles

When today children heard that will be these waffles for lunch, impatiently waited until they baked and of course waffles disappeared quickly. Daughter even after a dance session ate all leftovers. She literally licked the plate clean (I had to look carefully into the plate to understand that it was not washed out :)). But don’t think that some wild people live down here in our house, I have to mention that she licked the sauce with waffle, not with the tongue 🙂

Ground flax seed porridge

Lately, if we have bananas, I always make flax seed porridge. I like it very much. And if I add chopped fruits that are at the moment at home, and sprinkle with chopped toasted nuts – porridge comes out unreal! All my family enjoy this porridge, even the smallest and the largest. And I just love the fact that it is healthy and useful, and tasty.

Banana granola sugar-free and oil-free

nother name of this granola should be “It can’t be more healthy” 🙂 Now almost every sweet is too sweet for me, that’s why I liked this granola – it has only a mild sweetness. But making this granola you should use really overripe banana.

Hot pizza taste sandwiches

This weekend my kids were just amazing. They made these hot sandwiches alone, without my help. They even concurred their fear of the oven and the heat. The first day actually I helped them with the oven a little bit, but the next morning – me and my hubby had breakfast in bed, because my kids did everything on their one! Our eyes were wide open out of the pride what grate kids we are have. I love my kids!

Corn fritters

My kids just love corn. The first time I baked these fritter, they disappeared in a minute so there was nothing to photograph. Today I made some shots and only then invited kids to the table. And that was a good move, because fritters again disappeared in a minute. So if you or your kid like corn, I really recommend you to make them.

Oatmeal with banana and nuts

This morning was cloudy so it was a good time to cook this oatmeal. My kids don”t like simple oatmeal (or I just think that I still didn”t learn to cook it tasty), so I decided to make a little bit sweet but still healty version. Banana gives mild sweetness and nuts adds some crunchy texture. In the original recipe walnuts are used, but we don”t like them so I changed them to hazelnuts. At the end my little one asked next time not to add nuts at all. So decide by yourself to use or not to use nuts in your oatmeal.

Belarusian potato latkes

There are days when no egg are left in a refrigerator, and no one wants to go shopping. But this recipe comes to the rescue – these latkes are without egg. The taste doesn’t change from our ordinary potato latkes with eggs. So I add this recipe here that I didn’t forgot about this opportunity.
