Quite easy fish cakes that you can make using ordinary products. Expecially good for using mashed potatoes leftovers. We don’t like fish very much, but this dish we liked even a lot 🙂 Next to this fish cakes you’ll have to serve only salads. I also liked sprinkling these cakes with lemon juice.

Kukurūzų salotos

Corn salads

This salads were prepared by my kids 🙂 And it’s simple but really goods. Tomatoes and cucumber gives freshness, and potatoes – satiety. My kids ate without onions, because they were the chefs 🙂 But for adults I recommend to add onion springs.

Fish spread

This is something that don’t require cream cheese. I try not to by it if I don’t know where I will use it. So my desire to prepare some spread with smoked fish every time ended without nothing. Until one day – I was searching for something in book “Beata kitchen” (lithuanian food writer) and I saw this recipe. Then I ran to my hubby and told that this will be for lunch. This was really good. At first I didn’t use all lemon juice, but then we added everything, because the tastes are really well balanced.

Potato and leek soup

It is getting cold. And when it”s cold, we need something warm. So I thought about thick soup. This recipe I chose because I had leek that was sadly looking at me from the fridge, and other ingredients I had on hand. And preperation like almost in all my recipes – easy and quick. But when I tasted this soup I understood that there is something really special – I liked the thyme very very much. Even my hubby agreed with me. So this soup was added to our favourite soup recipes.

Belarusian potato latkes

There are days when no egg are left in a refrigerator, and no one wants to go shopping. But this recipe comes to the rescue – these latkes are without egg. The taste doesn’t change from our ordinary potato latkes with eggs. So I add this recipe here that I didn’t forgot about this opportunity.

Potato salads with sour cream

I know that potatoes doesn’t sound very summery, but it’s quick and only that matters to me now. Just have to mention that I asked my hubby to boil potatoes and eggs while I was at work. 🙂
