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.

Fried hand pies with cottage cheese filling

Sometimes my body doesn’t like combination flour+meat, but in those moments we can substitute meat with cottage cheese and make delicious hand pies. 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. 🙂

Quick Christmas fruit cake

This one was a little bit too sweet for me, but with unsweetened coffee it was great. You can substitute dried fruits with you favourites. For example I substituted some prunes with dried apricots and dates, also some of raisins substituted with dried cranberries. It’s really your choice and use all your dried fruit reserves.

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.

Favourite granola bars

For real – this is my favourite granola bars. I like especially to substitute 1 tablespoon of brown sugar with molasses sugar. My all family also likes them for snack and everytime these bars are gone, they miss them.

Cocoa dusted hazelnuts

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.

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.

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 🙂

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.

Cucumber and eggs salads

This simple salads are from kids recipe book (only one of a huge amount). But they really suitable for parents, just double or triple the quantities. If your little one is like mine and doesn’t like salad leaves, cut them in small chunks – it worked for my kid and he ate and didn’t noticed them.

Spicy almonds

The first time I made them for Christmas presents, but they are really good, so sometimes I prepare them just for us. They good for a snack or next to the cold beer. The last time I made them I put just a little bit less cayenne pepper, and my kids enjoyed them too.

Banana bread pudding

On the weekends we like to watch TV show “I can cook”. In other words we record it and watch when we like 🙂 One day I decided that it’s enough just to watch this showing, we need to take some action and prepare something. So we chose this banana-bread pudding. The next weekend I bought all needed products and measured everything. Then I invited kids to the kitchen to do everything what was needed to prepare pudding. And we really had a very good time 🙂 There were some troubles for kids, but I just reacted calmly and the mood of everyone was saved 🙂 Even dad said that this dessert is very good. We agreed that if we had some ice cream it would be even better, but even by itself it was very good 🙂

Gluten-free poppy seed cake with lemon glaze

For those, who still have left poppy seeds from Christmas. For those, who is seeking gluten-free cake. For those, who adore poppy seeds and lemon combination (it’s really worth trying!). This cake is really delicious, despite it contains only a few ingredients. I used 17cm diameter form, but original suggested to use 19cm diameter form. You should decide what size you will choose by yourself 🙂

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.

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.

Cold beetroot soup with sour cream

The summer is over, but we still can enjoy cold beetroot soup. I prepared it a few weeks ago, while we still had our own cucumbers and beetroots. I’ve never prepared this soup with sour cream, but it’s really good. So from now on I think I won’t by expensive sour milk that is made specially for this soup, but will buy cheaper and add some sour cream. Because it’s delicious too!

Yeasted pancakes

Autumn is coming very fast, so in the morning I started to search for cozy warming food. These yeasted pancakes are one of that kind of food. These pancakes were my second contact with yeasts, maybe that’s why they associates with cozy food.

Raw banana and peanut butter smoothie

When I saw this recipe, I knew – I will do it because I had all ingredients by the hand, even almond milk. And I can say that this is more dessert than smoothie, because it’s very dense. It was perfect for my hubby, who hates cow milk, and this smoothie he liked very very much. I think you can try cow milk instead of almond, but it won’t be raw 😉

Chicken Piccata

I adore lemon in all dishes, maybe except in yeasted buns 🙂 And I am very happy that my family feels the same. Long time ago I prepared chicken Piccata by Forelle recipe. This was also great, just there is sauce more and lemon more 🙂 I guess the best would be the combination of my and Forelle recipes – more sauce and lemon juice in moderation.

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 🙂

Buns with cottage cheese

I bake these buns everytime I have some cottage cheese left and want something sweet but at the same time simple. And the next day I just love to warm them a few seconds in the microwave – then they smell like newly baked. Really good!

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!

Tortilla

We just love tortillas. I tried this recipe more than once. Every time disappears very quickly, because my kids and me just eat them warm plain. My hubby doesn’t adore pastry, but he enjoys eating tortillas with some filling. So I really recommend to try – it’s simple, quick and better one hundred time than store bought.

Pie with chanterelles

Brinza cheese bake

When I saw brinza in a store, I bought it without thinking. But it rested in a fridge for a while. Then I searched my recipe archive and found one recipe with this cheese. So I prepared this dish the same day. My hubby liked it, even a lot 🙂 Children ate a lot too, so I think they liked it too. The taste reminded us stewed curd lasybones, which we like the same as marmots 🙂 The next day I sliced left overs and fried with a little bit butter in a pan. Kids liked it too. So I think this recipe has full right to be in my blog 🙂

Fruit and cottage cheese dessert Softness

Refreshing and easy dessert with the last strawberries. To say the truth, I prepared double portion so I had to use wild strawberries too in companion with strawberries. Definitely I will prepare this dessert with other berries or fruits. This recipe is from my children recipe archive. So if you add mild and sweet fruit, you can surely sweeten kids stomach. Just I really recommend to chill before serving – because then cream becomes stronger.
