Crepes filled with brinza cheese

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, and it seems, if I had no kids, I could forget it. But not now, because my kids already said what pancakes I should bake for their school. And as always my mind is busy about ideas what I could make tasty to feed my family. These crepes takes it all – they are very delicious and very satisfying. And everything in preparation is very simple and clear. But every time I prepare them, all just start to fight for them. For me, it gives a lot of pleasure. Since it is very tasty, it is difficult to stop eating them, so I make them not very often but during Mardi Gras you really can treat yourself.

Pumpkin granola with chocolate chunks

Usually I make granola in summer, when it’s hot outside and no one wants to eat porridge. But when last week I tried new recipe for granola bars and I had only crumbs, my kids ate it just like usual granola for breakfast. And then they asked to make more granola. So I make my favourite at this moment granola. Kids’ favourite granola will have to wait a little bit. They enjoy this granola too, just for them I had to add chocolate with more sugar.

Raw buckwheat and sunflower porrigde with fruits

Let’s start this new year eating healty! Especially when it does not requires a lot of effort, it should not be difficult to prepare it. I really wanted to try raw buckwheat, and when I bought them for long time I could not decided what to do with them. When accedentally I discovered this recipe, quickly it was prepared for breakfast. And yes, at first you will be tired of chewing it, but I think it’s good because you will have to make time for eating. You can not put quickly this porridge in your stomach and go, you will have to sit, chew and think about your life – it takes time. Fruits can chosen according to your taste, but I like the kiwi and ginger combination and ripe bananas provide enough sweetness, so for me it has enough sweetness even without honey or agave syrup. But you can always choose your favourite fruits and adjust sweetness by your taste buds.

Cottage cheese and corn flour pancakes

Last year for Christmas I bought the book Wheat belly, and I liked it so much that in January I didn’t give my family any wheat. At first it as very strange, unusual, but then we got used to it very quickly. But what I liked most – this gave me a kick to look for something new. That’s how I found these pancakes and this year we made them not once or twice. Sometimes I bake them as usual pancakes, sometimes in waffle iron. Both ways we like them. Every time these pancakes comes out very fluffy and light. And they spread in a pan a lot, so make space for them. And if you like to eat pancakes without any add-ons, I suggest to add a little bit more sugar or pour over them some tasty syrup.

Pizza waffles

When today children heard that will be these waffles for lunch, impatiently waited until they baked and of course waffles disappeared quickly. Daughter even after a dance session ate all leftovers. She literally licked the plate clean (I had to look carefully into the plate to understand that it was not washed out :)). But don’t think that some wild people live down here in our house, I have to mention that she licked the sauce with waffle, not with the tongue 🙂

Ground flax seed porridge

Lately, if we have bananas, I always make flax seed porridge. I like it very much. And if I add chopped fruits that are at the moment at home, and sprinkle with chopped toasted nuts – porridge comes out unreal! All my family enjoy this porridge, even the smallest and the largest. And I just love the fact that it is healthy and useful, and tasty.

Banana granola sugar-free and oil-free

nother name of this granola should be “It can’t be more healthy” 🙂 Now almost every sweet is too sweet for me, that’s why I liked this granola – it has only a mild sweetness. But making this granola you should use really overripe banana.

Hot pizza taste sandwiches

This weekend my kids were just amazing. They made these hot sandwiches alone, without my help. They even concurred their fear of the oven and the heat. The first day actually I helped them with the oven a little bit, but the next morning – me and my hubby had breakfast in bed, because my kids did everything on their one! Our eyes were wide open out of the pride what grate kids we are have. I love my kids!

Corn fritters

My kids just love corn. The first time I baked these fritter, they disappeared in a minute so there was nothing to photograph. Today I made some shots and only then invited kids to the table. And that was a good move, because fritters again disappeared in a minute. So if you or your kid like corn, I really recommend you to make them.

Oatmeal with banana and nuts

This morning was cloudy so it was a good time to cook this oatmeal. My kids don”t like simple oatmeal (or I just think that I still didn”t learn to cook it tasty), so I decided to make a little bit sweet but still healty version. Banana gives mild sweetness and nuts adds some crunchy texture. In the original recipe walnuts are used, but we don”t like them so I changed them to hazelnuts. At the end my little one asked next time not to add nuts at all. So decide by yourself to use or not to use nuts in your oatmeal.

Belarusian potato latkes

There are days when no egg are left in a refrigerator, and no one wants to go shopping. But this recipe comes to the rescue – these latkes are without egg. The taste doesn’t change from our ordinary potato latkes with eggs. So I add this recipe here that I didn’t forgot about this opportunity.

Omelette with cheese

I know, I know this is not some super stunning recipes, but this omelette is baked in our house almost every week, or when no bread we have at home, or when sandwiches starts to get boring. My kids don’t like simple omelette or baked eggs, but this is with cheese. And it buys my kids 🙂 Usually I prepare it without recipe, but I don’t like recipes without measurements so I give you exact recipe.

Cinnamon toast

These were our breakfast today! They are just perfect – sweet, crunchy and very very delicious! If you like cinnamon like us, you will like these toasts too. I prepared them the quick way – just mixed all ingredients and didn’t wait untill sugar melts. Maybe it would be just more tasty, but time was my enemy and I had not much time becaue kids were already hungry.

Spanish omelet

This is our new best breakfast. We baked it I think even four times. And understood one thing – it’s really good with tomato and sour cream sauce. Maybe it would be great with green salads too, but this combination we will try only in the spring.

Chocolate-Coconut Granola

A few weeks ago I started to think that it would be good to make chocolate granola. And one day it was time for that. Although it’s more cocoa granola than chocolate, but anyway, it was good combination with coconuts.

Cream waffles

When I found this recipe I was so exited that baked them a few weekends for breakfast. Cream makes them frangible and even when they are cold they stay very tasty. I bake half of the portion but it’s enough for two kids and two parents for the light breakfast. I really recommend you!

Cottage cheese bake with vanilla pudding

We just love cottage cheese. But in the long time we were tired of the same cottage cheese bake. So when I found this recipe I knew I have to bake it – I have pudding mix packet bought long time ago. It is really a good way to use it. My kids loved it. And I prepared half of the recipe, but soon I had to repeat it 🙂

Granola with honey

Granola that smells honey, but very crunchy and addictive like sunflowers. Everytime I prepare it, half of it I eat alone – without milk, just like crunchy cookies. Even my hubby loved it, just honey is not recommended for him, so next time I will prepare it with golden syrup instead of honey. And I like this granola without any mix-ins!

Sardine pâté

The tastiest pâté for my family. After I prepare this pâté, the others became not suitable for us 🙂 I think this is becaus of lemon given freshness. Just don’t put lemon juice too much. We lowered the amount of them, and we can’t get enough of this.

Eggs with a cream

Tasty and easy 🙂 Put ingredients to the forms and while baking in an oven, you can go wake up your family. I prepared them already two times, but both times I over-baked it a little bit and the egg yolks were strong. But neglecting that we liked it, especially my hubby liked the eggs with a feta. And my parents said that these eggs are very solid.

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.

Russian pancake baked in an oven

The first pancake that baked out grate. Others that I’ve tries were some how not good – too much milk, or too much berries. But this time pancake was fluffy, and tender. Only next time I’ll try to bake it in a larger form, because this time it came out very thick and that’s why taste was like curd bake but without curd 🙂 But it’s tasty, easy and quick. And you don’t have to stand near the pan.

Polenta pancakes

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.

Crepes stuffed with broccoli and cheese

I’m very excited when the recipe which I chose to prepare is admitted 110 percents. I wanted to make these crepes all week long, but all week I had no time to spend in the kitchen. And only this weekend the time has come 🙂 I’m very glad that I made only half portion because if there were more than four crepes I couldn’t stop eating. The filling is so light, with the gentle taste of broccoli and very nice taste of cheese. My hubby said he wasn’t hungry but ate one crepe and was very excited 🙂 The next time I will not make our usual crepes with cheese filling, but give a little bit more time and make these crepes.

I learned how to make this sandwich from my friend which is living in Norway almost for two years. Every time she comes back to Lithuania, she doesn’t forget to visit us 🙂 The last time she visited us with her norvegian friend, they found the same pickled prawns like they buy in Norway. So they showed us how to make this easy sandwiches.
