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!

Pork stew with dried prunes

For the quick lunch or in case you don’t want to spend a lot of time near the stove, this pork stew if just for you. While it’s stewing, you can take your time and prepare salads or some side dish. No matter how suspiciously we looked into dried fruit and meat combination, here it suits perfectly. This time as a side dish we had brown rice, so do not be surprised that they look like dirty, but after all, healthier 🙂

Chocolate chip cookies with nuts and apricots

The first time I baked these cookies with my daugther. They were very delicious and very sweet. So next time I used less sugar, but they spread less while baking. Here I give you proportions with less sugar because I like when cookies are cookies and not candies 🙂 By the way, when I used hazelnuts my hubby said to leave them at home (didn’t let to take them to my work) 🙂 So it says everything about the taste of these cookies.

Quick Christmas fruit cake

This one was a little bit too sweet for me, but with unsweetened coffee it was great. You can substitute dried fruits with you favourites. For example I substituted some prunes with dried apricots and dates, also some of raisins substituted with dried cranberries. It’s really your choice and use all your dried fruit reserves.

Zucchini Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Dried Cranberries

A little bit not ordinary cookies. You can’t taste zucchini, just it’s green skin says that cookies has a secret in side. Next time I will use quick cooking oats, because now I used old fashioned and eating cookies I could feel hard oats.

Apple butter cookies with rasins

These cookies are universal 🙂 I baked them several times. And one time, when I found out that we don’t have nor apple butter, nor raisins, nor nuts, I improvised and cookies we make with plum jam and poppy seeds. They turned out grate too 🙂 So I decided that these cookies are perfect when I have some jam leftovers. By the way, I used unsweetened apple jam, so if you use sweet one, then I suggest to add 50 ml less sugar.

Oat muffins with dried fruits

I don’t know why but I look at baking with dried fruits suspiciously. But now I’m ashamed… I baked these muffins and ate half of them all by my self… Sour milk gave the taste of cottage cheese. Strange, but we like it 🙂

Dried fruits candy

Someone said that Sesame candies are very healthy 🙂 But they were wrong! These candies are really super healthy because they don”t need sugar – everything in them is natural (except coating). With the hubby we decided that next time we will make these candies smaller (about 10 cents diameter) and coat with melted chocolade.

Puffed rice with dried fruits

At first I was very sceptical about this recipe, because I thought that butterscotch and dried fruits won’t fit together. I was wrong and I am very happy about that 🙂 Dried fruits are perfect here, the dessert is not too sweet because of them.

Mini pie with pumpkin and prunes

These mini pies are very good way to use pumpkin or pumpkin puree. I and my hubby like them very much, but the kids do not. My mother asked to bake them because she wanted to take them to her work and that is the best proof to me that they taste great 🙂

Using a broad range of dried fruit, you can make good looking nice skewers. This time I used dried papaya (red), dried grapefruit (green), dried pineapple (yellow), dried strawberries (brown or dark red) and dried …
