These mini pies are very delicious and warm, and cold. I thought I will miss meat, but I didn’t. I thought to bring them to work for lunch, but I couldn’t because we ate them all for breakfast…

Buttermilk pancakes

So I get up and go to the kitchen to bake pancakes. Because all kids like pancakes and it’s really easy to bake.

Polenta padengta viščiuko filė

Chicken breast coated with polenta

I wanted something new, not usual to us. So I prepared this chicken and I’m happy about that. At first the process looked very difficult and long, but in one hour everything was finished and we could enjoy the meal.

Vyšninių pomidorų tarta

Cherry tomato tart

Sometimes happens that you buy something and forget where you were planning to use it. The same happened with cherry tomatoes. So I used this easy recipe. I was surprised when my hubby liked it, because he doesn’t like basil and oregano.

Šokoladiniai sviestiniai sausainiai

Chocolate butter cookies

I chose them because in the recipe it was written that they don’t spread. Yes, it’s correct. But I expected more crunchy, and they were soft. But they hole the form very well and are really delicious. I gave them as a present in my job. They disappeared in minutes 🙂 And I was asked for the recipes.

Lavašo traškučiai su mėlynojo sūrio padažu

Lavash chips with blue cheese sauce

Almost every weekend we try to do something tasty. It doesn’t have to be sweet. So this time I suggest you lavash chips with blue cheese sauce. You will make them in half an hour for sure. And they are really healthier option for patoto chips.

Some my notices. When you sprinkle lavash with salt – be careful, because cheese sauce is quite salty. If you are afraid that onion greens will fall of the chips – don’t be, they really don’t fall that easy. Also, I noticed that super markets sell lavash from a few companies, they are a little bit different in thickness. So I recommend to use thinnest – chips will be more brittle.
