Chanterelles with oven roasted potatoes

To tell the truth, this dish last year ate even my hubby! And agreed that it not only looks great, but taste the same way too. To bake potatoes in the oven takes time, so sometimes I change them with boiled potatoes. However, if you are not in hurry, you should really try to bake them in the oven. It is more tasty that way.

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.

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.

Hearts and carrot stew

If the past time was a healthy recipe, now it’s the cheap one. After all, you need to have all kinds of options. I made this stew for three times because we couldn’t decided we like it or not. The second time I made it, carrots had too strong taste and we didn’t like it. So choose young, crisp and tasty carrots and everything will be fine. Our children do not eat this sort of misunderstandings , so me and my hubby enjoyed it for lunch. And the last time it was so delicious that we ate more than we should. 🙂

Home-made burger with Havarti cheese

When outside is so hot that no one wants to cook, but you get hungry anyway. Thus, in the late evening, when the weather began to cool down at least a little bit, we heated our hand-made grill and cooked burgers. Meat preparation is described below, and then all is left – to make your burgers to your taste and preferences. We used rolls, lettuce, tomato slices, several kinds of sauces and of course cheese. Burgers turned out incredibly tasty, perhaps because of the cheese, maybe because of grilled rolls, or maybe just because we did them at home after a very long break. They tasted even better than those bought for sure.

Meatballs in spicy sauce

When I saw this recipes I immediately wanted to make them. The main reason – meatballs are baked in an oven, so you don’t have to stand near the stove. I made them already a few time and both times they came out really good. So I just need to add this recipe hear in my blog. You should try them too 🙂 By the way, when I made them, I didn’t have bread crumbs, that’s why I used oat brans. But it didn’t change the taste, just made meatballs healthier.

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!

Almond chicken fingers

These chicken fingers are very good. A lot of spices are used in the recipe, but the combination is perfect. Only cayenne pepper you should add according to your taste. When I prepare this chicken to my children, I add only half of it, but in the original it is used twice as much. Fingers are prepared very quickly, and the most exciting thing that it doesn’t need time to marinate, and later you don’t have to stand near the pan. For your health – it’s only for the good. We ate this chicken already many times, sometimes just as fast food – with some sauce and pickles or oven ​​fried potatoes. This time we had it for dinner with some vegetable stew, ordinary enough, but still everything was good and we liked it.
