Farmers Cheese Breakfast Fritters {Sirniki}


If you ask me to name one dish that comes in mind from my childhood memories, without a doubt it would be sirniki (seer-nee-kee). They were usually made on weekends or mornings when there was nowhere to rush, and enjoyed leisurely over the breakfast table. Ok, who am I kidding; they were gone as soon as they hit the table as they were one of our favourite breakfasts :)

Easy weekday meal: {Sausage and Broccoli Egg Noodles}


 My life just got a lot busier. My almost 5 year old daughter started her first year at school (a squeal of excitement!), and I am the one who is doing majority of school runs and after school activities, with a toddler in  tow. And let me tell you, it is not always an easy task. In those moments I wish I could drive, which by the way is on my mile long to do/achieve list. But I am getting there, slowly but surely : )

Homemade Almond Milk Recipe

 I only ‘discovered’ almond milk sometime last year.  Don’t get me wrong, I knew that there is alternative to dairy milk, but, thankfully, having no allergies in my family, I was not interested in non-dairy milk.

 But seeing so many of lovely bloggers raving about almond milk, my curiosity took over and I decided to try it as well. I am not going to lie, at first I wanted to buy it. But when I looked at the price at my local store, all my desire disappeared. It costs almost €3 for one liter of almond milk, which in my opinion is a pure robbery  :)

Spicy Beef and Kidney Bean Lettuce Cups

Lunches nowadays are almost nonexistent for me. With one toddler and one four year old, there seems never time just to sit down and have a lunch.  And by the time I finally have a free minute to eat I am always starving and ready to wolf down anything. And I have to admit that not always it’s a healthy or wise choice.

Fried sardines with garlic, chilli and fresh herbs

Where did summer go? We are already half way through September and I definitely can feel chills in the early mornings. Although I enjoyed our summer a lot, I am happy to welcome the autumn.  

Past summer has been exceptionally warm this year what is very unusual to Irish weather and I bet nobody have expected that. Temperatures were reaching as high as 27C, and I have to tell you it was very pleasant change from what we would typically have.
