Minced meat and cabbage pie with curry and apples

This pie may look strange at first, but we tried it twice and we liked it. Apples gives sweet and Tabasco – spicy tastes. And this pie doesn’t require eggs, so the filling is not so solid but it’s not crumbly also. I and my son liked the pie crust – it’s with whole wheat flour, so it crumbles a little bit more than usual with only white wheat flour, but it has some charm in it.

Braised green peas with carrots

This recipe looks so simple, but we found it just this year. And it’s already in top of our favourite recipes. Maybe for someone there’s nothing new, but me and my hubby didn’t eat this dish in our childhood, so it’s new for us. Now when we need quick dinner or supper, we braise all frozen vegetables the same way, and always it comes out really very very delicious.

Salted crackers with flax seeds

I made the decision that my family like flax seeds. I baked these crackers don’t know how many times, but every time they end in the same way – we can’t stop eating them and they finish at the same day. Even today my little man can’t stop eating them. But they are not sweet so I let him enjoy them.

Beet and tuna salads

One more salads that are very good in autumn or in winter or anytime while don’t have any fresh greens. You can mix everything in a bowl, but I think it’s beautiful and more quick to serve them layered in plates. The next day I prepared them without tuna, and they got a lot of compliments from my kids.

Crispy coleslaw

For a few years I was looking for cabbage salads that my family enjoyed. And this is the one – I made them maybe 5 times or more. The secret I think is celery. Remember, we don’t like it, but this time I think it’s essential. So I want to remember these salads till the next autumn or winter and that’s why I add the recipe here – the safest place for the recipes I know 🙂

Chicken breast with homemade tomato sauce

Sometimes even when at home there is only a few products, you still can prepare satisfying meal. For this one you only need to buy canned tomatoes and chicken breast, other products – I guest almost everyone have at home. But I have to tell you this time you will have to spend some time preparing tomato sauce, but it’s worth that. I like it even more than store bought. But my kids don’t agree with me 🙂 But everyone has the right to choose.

Chocolate banana shake

One more healthy recipe that I found in books about healthy living. It’s without diary products – that was one good point for me. Another thing – it’s with flaxseed. I’m trying to use them more in our daily family diet. So I almost ran to the kitchen and mixed it. I really recommend to let soak flaxseed meal in water for a few minutes, or your shake will be with hard small parts. But if you will be patient – shake will be very thick and creamy.

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.

Lemon chicken

Chicken is quite often prepared for lunch or dinner at our house, so it’s not surprise that I try to find new recipes with it. Till now I haven’t tried chicken with lemon. But this recipe is with mild lemon taste and is not very sour, so all my family enjoy it.

Pillaf from Rustam

This is my favourite pillaf recipe. After I found it I don’t seek any new anymore. I like it because it doesn’t use tomato sauce or ketchup, because real tomatoes are used. But if you like ketchup, you can use it anyway. Sometimes I adapt recipe for my hubby and add only small carrot, sometimes I don’t add bell pepper at all. But sometimes I do everything by recipe, because I think proportions given are just perfect.

Balsamic green bean salads

Spring is near so we should start cleaning our freezers. We love green beans and every year I prepare a lot of them for the winter. But almost always the best dish for me and my daughter is fried green beans with butter and bread crumbs. Until now! Maybe this delicious salads are very tasty just for me and my hubby, because dressing has a really strong taste. But kids also eat these salads, just amount is not very big 🙂

Minced meat and cheese bake

This dish is perfect when you have minced meat prepared for meat balls but you don’t want to stand near the pan. It can be prepared in advance and put in a refrigerator. Then even my hubby can bake it. My family just loves this bake, maybe it’s because of the cheese, but I love it because of it’s simplicity.

Chinese chicken salads

These salads are so easy to prepare, that you just have to make them for your lunch in the office or for a light dinner. By the way, chicken breast boils very quickly – just boil water with seasonings, put chicken breast and boil for 10 minutes. And that’s all. So you see, even with chicken breast boiling these salads are super quickly made.

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.

Yoghurt cake with peaches

I made this little one for my beloved husband on his birthday. We usually don’t celebrate birthdays but this year decided to do it different way and invited relatives. And we got equally 12 people – and the cake is exactly for 12 servings. But the cake is really big, so I guess we had a little piece left for next day breakfast.

Minced meat, onions and caraway seeds stew

This stew doesn’t require much of your time, it just needs time to braise. I think freshly baked buns would be perfect here, but I had no time for them, so we ate with white bread. Original recipe calls for a lot more caraway, but I adjusted the amount for my family taste. Also be careful with the salt if using stock or you can end up with too salty stew (as I do sometimes 🙂 ).

Baked chicken livers with onion and tomato sauce

From the childhood we all know that livers are very healthy to eat, but knowing doesn’t mean that you do it. One day I decided to make chicken liver pate and they were very delicious but I had some liver leftover and started to look for some new recipe. I found it in one of my favourite books and it looked very similar to the dish that my mom used to make when I was a child. So I gave it a try and me and my hubby enjoyed it a lot! Sadly but my kids didn’t understand us and didn’t eat. But anyway now this recipe is one of my favourites, because it’s so quick that for making and eating it I spend less than an hour.

Lavash chips with blue cheese sauce

Almost every weekend we try to do something tasty. It doesn’t have to be sweet. So this time I suggest you lavash chips with blue cheese sauce. You will make them in half an hour for sure. And they are really healthier option for patoto chips.

Some my notices. When you sprinkle lavash with salt – be careful, because cheese sauce is quite salty. If you are afraid that onion greens will fall of the chips – don’t be, they really don’t fall that easy. Also, I noticed that super markets sell lavash from a few companies, they are a little bit different in thickness. So I recommend to use thinnest – chips will be more brittle.

Chocolate yoghurt

Monday is a hard day, but anyway I want to share with you this dessert recipe. It’s so simple and quick. My all family enjoy it. But we all agreed that with milk chocolate it’s better, because dark chocolate gives some bitterness and yoghurt becomes unsweet for our tastes.

Cauliflower and egg salads

Lately people started to switch potatoes with cauliflowers. I saw how people make “potato” mash from cauliflower, and then I saw “potato” salads with cauliflower. We like cauliflower, so why not to give it a try. I made them for lunch and you know – it was really nice to get message from my hubby “Thank you, it was really delicious”. So I opened my lunch box and tasted them – I really enjoyed them. The main thing – don’t over boil cauliflower, it should be a little bit crispy. And if you don’t like mayonnaise, you can use sour cream or natural yoghurt – I tried with them when I was out of mayo. Just you will need to add more seasonings, and maybe add a few drops of lemon juice or vinegar.

Cheese sticks

I’ve heard a lot of compliments on these sticks. And they were tasted not only by my family, but by a lot of people in my mother’s relatives gathering. From this amount you will bake a lot of cheese sticks, so when I saw it I devided it in halves and the first half was baked the same day for the gathering. The second part was baked next day only for my family. So what can I say… You should really wait and let rest dough in a refrigerator, because next day they were lighter and moister. By the way, I made half with caraway and in another half I omitted it. I liked both variants, so you decide by yourself to use caraway or not.

But weekend is beginning and I will make some good treats for my whole family anyway. But you can try this coffee 🙂

Pasta with corn

This dish is a winner for my kids! It’s very very quick and super simple. Even kids can prepare it. But I save it only for the time when I’m very tired or don’t want to stay in a kitchen for a long time. This dish is a little bit sweet because of the corn, maybe that’s why kids like it. But I have to warn you – make it only if you really like corn. My kids like pasta and corn so much that they even don’t notice that there is onion too 🙂
