Cheese sticks

I’ve heard a lot of compliments on these sticks. And they were tasted not only by my family, but by a lot of people in my mother’s relatives gathering. From this amount you will bake a lot of cheese sticks, so when I saw it I devided it in halves and the first half was baked the same day for the gathering. The second part was baked next day only for my family. So what can I say… You should really wait and let rest dough in a refrigerator, because next day they were lighter and moister. By the way, I made half with caraway and in another half I omitted it. I liked both variants, so you decide by yourself to use caraway or not.

Pasta salad with grean peas and tomatoes

Very simple recipe. Parents like it because it’s really quick and kids like it because it’s delicious. Almost everyday I find myself thinking about how to encourage my kids to eat more veggies. These salads are one step closer to my wish. My kids didn’t even noticed chopped chives 🙂 I repeated this recipe several times and both times kids said the same – it’s really good!

Sandwiches with tomatoes and olives

One more our breakfast recipe. Taste reminds pizza’s, when I added basil leaves. These sandwiches you will prepare very quickly but the taste will give you a good start for the whole day.

Lietiniai su brinzos sūriu

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.
