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.

Sandwiches with cottage cheese and greens

This our new breakfast. It’s quick, easy, fresh and tasty. Now the weather is too cold for smoothies, baked eggs are boring and my family doesn’t eat much sandwiches. But these are different because greens brings freshness. So if you are bored from sandwiches with ham or cheese, you should try these.

Rye bread sticks with flaxseeds

Healthy snack that all my family enjoy. I baked them twice. First time whole flaxseeds I added on top of breadsticks but they easily dropped of, so next time I put them inside the breadsticks and we like it that way.

Rice bake with curd

Lately my family doesn”t want any bakes. But this recipe was the only one that I liked and wanted to prepare for the Rice week. I said that I”m gonna make it you like it or not 🙂 And only when I saw how my family was eating this bake I remembered that rice and curd are the most favourite ingredients so this bake had to be a hit from the beginning. And one more point for this bake – it”s just slightly sweet. That”s why I heard compliment from my hubby. He said that this bake is probably the best that he ever ate 🙂 So you look at the last piece of bake 🙂 and it disappeared very quickly after I did some shots.

My all family enjoyed them and 12 was enough only for three people, but not four 🙂 So next time I’ll have to prepare double portion that everyone cold be happy. 🙂
