Cottage cheese and rye flour balls, or cookies?

The author of this recipe says it’s cookies and in her blog they really look like cookies. In my case, they are balls and the texture is between cookies and buns. Therefore, we call them just balls. The first day they have crispy exterior and the next they are all soft. In my family, they are enjoyed in all forms. Just I have to hide some if I want to enjoy them next day. By the way, you can see from the ingredient list that all sweetness comes from just one tablespoon of honey, so in our opinion they are not cookies at all 🙂 But if you will enjoy them with a sweet drink, they will be perfect companions.

I still afraid to use rye flour in sweet baking, but these balls really fit here and encourage me to try other sweets with them.

Very delicious pancakes. Fluffy, very light. Just melts in your mouth. When I remember their taste I’m suffused with warmth and good memories of the weekend.

Buckwheat and cottage cheese pancakes

I had a lot of cooked boiled buckwheats after my daughter dinner, so I decided to try something new. And I was very glad when my hubby said that it tasted very good!

Wild strawberries with sour milk

Quick and easy drink or dessert. I made it for kids and they liked it a lot. It’s a pity that these berries were the last in our garden.

Cottage cheese and potatoes dumplings

At first I just wanted to make photo and upload it to Mano receptai.lt. But when my family tasted them, I understood that they are really good and they deserve to be posted here. I have tried to boil cottage cheese and potato dumplings without the recipe, bet they never tasted as good as these. I think the secret is good cottage cheese and potato proportions. So I really recommend to try this a little bit simplified version of dumplings.

Cottage cheese bake with couscous

We like cottage cheese bake, so I have already tried a lot of versions like simple cottage cheese bake, cottage cheese and pasta bake, cottage cheese and vanilla pudding bake and cottage cheese and rice bake. This time I tried with couscous. Everyone tastes a little bit different but we like them all. And it’s good to know that everytime I can choose by my refrigerator content.
