Christmas if over, New Year and it’s new goals are set. So we have just to wait for another great festival – St.Valentine day. But Christmas stil is something special – because we spend so much time thinking about our family and friend. And I think that to give is more important in that day then to get.
This year I got a small present from Ineta from Gamyklėlė blog. Thank you very much – it was really sweet 🙂
And now a little bit about 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. So here it goes:

At last I made these little puppies too. My daughter asked to give her something that she could treat her kindergarten group children. So good mother rolled up her sleeves and started to word ? This work was only pleasure. Of course it needed some time but these puppies are really worth it.
Somehow I baked pancakes long time ago. So came the time when I started to miss them. And I guess my all family miss them too, because these polenta pancakes disappeared very quickly. If you don’t have polenta or lazy to grind corn groats, you can use corn flour. You just have to use more milk.
These bagels are really tasty and what’s more important – very quickly prepared. They didn’t live long – next day they were all gone, because they’re very addictive 🙂
It’s super easy but super good! I couldn”t imagine that I will like it so much. Before I tried this dough, dumplings at my house was really a guest. But now I prepare them with meat, curd or other chosen filling. My family likes it. I saw that Skanus gyvenimas prepared very similar dumpling dough but with eggs. I didn”t tried it yet, but sure it should taste even more better. But anyway, the recipe below gives very plastic, not sticking, unshrinkable dough. It”s a little bit like plasteline 🙂 And I just love it.
I bake this bread more then a year. But as always, the best recipes hardly reach the blog 🙂 Because I bake it very often and know all ingredients in my head. This bread is perfect. Really 🙂 After founding this bread I don’t buy any bread at store. Or maybe just in big gatherings when I don’t have time to bake more of this bread. 🙂
