Cabbage and Carrot Salad

Fresh and tasty. This is not a recipe from my grandad's book but I had to share it with you. You simply have to try it!! We often use a combination of cabbage and carrot in salads, but not with mint. Simple recipe with such a special and exotic flavor.

It's that time of the year. The cookies season :) I made these in a lent version, I used margarine instead of butter. They turned out a bit flat but still tasty.

Homemade Whole Wheat Bagels

homemade bagels

Bagels are my favorite breakfast. With some cheese, tea or jam. This is the first time I'm making them at home. And I made a healthy version using whole wheat flour and some flax seed. They are tasty and crunchy and not to mention that perfect baking smell in the house.

Very simple recipe for a delicious apple cake. It's easy to make and even easier to eat :) It has no dairy products or eggs so people fasting can try it.

Stale-Bread Pizza

stale bread pizza

I don't like throwing bread away . Even when it's very old I take it to the balcony so the birds can eat it. This is a great recipe for when you have some bread that is a couple of days old, and, of course, for when you don't feel like making the pizza dough and still would like some pizza taste :)
