Carrot and cottage cheese bake

Spring is here – calendar tells it, but outside is still cold. Anyway, my eyes automatically turns to warm colours. Carrots are full of warm orange colour and they are perfect for us today. In this bake, I used oat bran and it gave the bake a little bit grey colour. So if you want to make colour of the bake brighter – use semolina.

Kama flour cookies with chocolate

This time I used whole spelt flour, just because whole wheat four I couldn’t get in our store. And measured everything in grams because it’s more convenient for me. I was surprised that I had to use more flour that it was noted in original recipe. Maybe it’s because of spelt flour. So I suggest to add spelt or wheat flour gradually and to see if more is needed.

Cottage cheese and rye flour balls, or cookies?

The author of this recipe says it’s cookies and in her blog they really look like cookies. In my case, they are balls and the texture is between cookies and buns. Therefore, we call them just balls. The first day they have crispy exterior and the next they are all soft. In my family, they are enjoyed in all forms. Just I have to hide some if I want to enjoy them next day. By the way, you can see from the ingredient list that all sweetness comes from just one tablespoon of honey, so in our opinion they are not cookies at all 🙂 But if you will enjoy them with a sweet drink, they will be perfect companions.

Cottage cheese and boiled potato bake

Potatoes and cottage cheese – it’s always a great company. So why not to combine them in to a bake. It can be prepared within a few minutes. I found this recipe in Russian magazine about child-caring, but significantly changed by our observations: original recipe asks to slice the potatoes, but we prefer grated because it distributes better; original asks to pour more milk, we prefer the more eggs, and this bake comes out stronger. For us our experimentations came out super tasty. So, honestly, I urge you to try it too 😉

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.

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.

Beetroot, cashew and feta salads

Don’t know why but this autumn I’m hooked on beetroots. Every weekend I boil some beetroots and through the week I incorporate them in our dishes. And then story repeats. When I wanted for dinner something light, I prepared these salads. By the way, this recipe in the book is called carpaccio, but I think it’s more salads, and the name is more usual and not so fancy 🙂 . Family girls enjoy them, the big boy ate them and just said that more balsamic vinegar would be better, and the little boy as always, prepared some theater and then ate them, just without enjoyment. So I remember these salads as they are fit for girls 🙂 And I prepared very similar salads with hazelnuts, and they were very good too. So as always – don’t be afraid to experiment and correct ingredients by your refrigerator or cupboard products.

Cottage cheese and zucchini bake

I make this bake with my first zucchini that grew in our garden. In my archive I didn’t find the recipe that I could follow, so I fantasized a little bit and make bake with cottage cheese and zucchini. My family enjoyed it a lot. And even when I baked it again, all disappeared in one sitting. So please, bake and enjoy it too!

Cinnamon chips with fruit salsa

Dessert came out really good. Someone put fruit salsa on cinnamon chips, someone ate fruit salsa with teaspoon next to the cinnamon chips. Kids ate all leftovers and looked for more cinnamon chips, but unfortunately… they were all gone.
