Ingredients: 400g flour 1/2 pack baking powder 1 pack vanilla sugar 3 tbsp sugar 1 egg 250g melted butter jam for the filling For the chocolate frosting: 4 … Continue reading

While We Were Out!

As this winter the snow does not seem to be willing to come to us, we had to go chasing it somewhere else. Luckily we only had to go as far as Austria to have fun in the fresh snow : ) Naturally, open air fun helps boost hunger, so we also enjoyed some delicious meals! Of … Continue reading

Puff Pastry Sausage Bows

This is another frequently used recipe by me, a big favourite of my Mr and my whole family, while one of the easiest ever salty snack recipes, moreover it only has 3 (or max. 4) ingredients. Did I mention it is fast and cheap? Oh, and by the way, a perfect snack for the upcoming … Continue reading

Apple-Chicken Salad

It is time to post a  recipe about something much more resolution friendly, don’t you think? 😉 Anyway, I found this great recipe after looking for some nice salad idea with apples (as I got a thousand-year old – okay, well, a month old) apple from my grandmother the other day). I had to think … Continue reading

Although I do not have the exact recipe they used there, I think we managed to recreate it quite well! Ingredients: Pineapple … Continue reading

Although it is “only veggies” it is quite satisfying – not only for women 🙂 Stuffed Mushrooms Ingredients: 6 bigger mushrooms 1/2 zucchini … Continue reading

Tuna Casserole

I have to say, this recipe surprised me the most positively in my whole life. Without exaggeration! Sounded easy, relatively fast and a good variation on pasta with tuna (that we do quite often – with corn, onion, tomato sauce and tuna). I never thought these small changes in the list of ingredients will make … Continue reading

Cocoa Rolls

We LOVE cocoa (or chocolate) rolls. Store-bought, home-made, perfect snack for both me and my Mr 🙂 However as an enthusiastic baker, I prefer the home-made versions, that’s why I was over the Moon when I found a recipe that is really simple and works! These can be frozen and re-heated as well, however we … Continue reading

Greek Meatballs

I found this great and simple recipe on a foodie blog that is very close to my heart: any time I browse the recipes I feel like I’m on that gorgeous island of Crete (the blog belongs to a Hungarian lady living in Crete with her family). She shares Hungarian and most importantly Greek recipes, I have tried many of … Continue reading
