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 😉

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.

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!

Cottage cheese and potatoes dumplings

At first I just wanted to make photo and upload it to Mano receptai.lt. But when my family tasted them, I understood that they are really good and they deserve to be posted here. I have tried to boil cottage cheese and potato dumplings without the recipe, bet they never tasted as good as these. I think the secret is good cottage cheese and potato proportions. So I really recommend to try this a little bit simplified version of dumplings.
