Cocoa dusted hazelnuts


Author: Aušra

Date:

Once girls from Kaunas invited me to join small party called “50 cocoa shades”. I scrolled a lot of recipes and tried three of them, but only one was the one (others were good enough to eat, but just it). These nuts are very contagious – you start to nibble and forget to stop. They are not too sweet, you perfectly taste hazelnuts, so I liked them very very much.

Burokėlių, anakardžių ir fetos sūrio salotos

Beetroot, cashew and feta salads

Don’t know why but this autumn I’m hooked on beetroots. Every weekend I boil some beetroots and through the week I incorporate them in our dishes. And then story repeats. When I wanted for dinner something light, I prepared these salads. By the way, this recipe in the book is called carpaccio, but I think it’s more salads, and the name is more usual and not so fancy 🙂 . Family girls enjoy them, the big boy ate them and just said that more balsamic vinegar would be better, and the little boy as always, prepared some theater and then ate them, just without enjoyment. So I remember these salads as they are fit for girls 🙂 And I prepared very similar salads with hazelnuts, and they were very good too. So as always – don’t be afraid to experiment and correct ingredients by your refrigerator or cupboard products.

Double layer cake with dough balls

This cake really deserves your attention! It’s looks very beautifully, but it is prepared from really simple products that you maybe already have in your fridge. My kids saw how I’m working with these photos and asked to bake this cake again. I think it’s the best evaluation 🙂

Šokoladinis kremas

Chocolate spread

This spread I found accidentally. But the simplicity was intriguing and I gave a try. Even my hubby, who doesn’t like cocoa, agreed that it’s very good. So almost all last week at school my girl ate sandwiches with this cream and peanut butter. And today I had to prepare this spread again, because it was very good with a freshly baked bread for me too 🙂

Braziliška kava su kakava

Brazilian coffee with cocoa

Weekend is a perfect time for relaxing with this sweet and delightful drink. I say it’s almost dessert. So if you like coffee and cocoa, give this drink a try.

Migdoliniai vištienos piršteliai

Almond chicken fingers

These chicken fingers are very good. A lot of spices are used in the recipe, but the combination is perfect. Only cayenne pepper you should add according to your taste. When I prepare this chicken to my children, I add only half of it, but in the original it is used twice as much. Fingers are prepared very quickly, and the most exciting thing that it doesn’t need time to marinate, and later you don’t have to stand near the pan. For your health – it’s only for the good. We ate this chicken already many times, sometimes just as fast food – with some sauce and pickles or oven ​​fried potatoes. This time we had it for dinner with some vegetable stew, ordinary enough, but still everything was good and we liked it.
