Few weeks ago I published a recipe for tuna salad in my blog. Now in turn I made a quite similar salad from chicken. As I earlier said in the case of tuna salad, this kind of filling, easy-to-make and eaten cold salad fits very well together with warm summer days. Continue reading “Chicken salad”
When a little pug puppy joined us a few months ago we bought him some tuna to use as a part of his meals. Then it came to mind that we could of course eat it as well and not only serve it as dog food. Continue reading “Tuna salad”
Once again my darling old spouse brought me a new recipe with all the ingredients needed for making food out of them. He asked if we could try it. And forced I was, because the ingredients were already purchased and the recipe was quite interesting and easy to make. Continue reading “Zucchini and halloumi patties with smetana sauce”
These cupcakes are really tasty, though they do not look as pretty. Fortunately it has nothing to do with the taste. Cakes rise in the oven the way they want to and there are always some bulges in the middle. Continue reading “Gluten free coffee cupcakes”
The original recipe is from the blog lautasellinen rakkautta.fi. On that site the author mentions that her family values, loves and treats potatoes with great passion and that on their table potatoes could be served even every single day.
I absolutely do agree: one never gets bored with potatoes and they indeed can be made in so many different ways. For example oven-baked potatoes, cooked potatoes, potato wedges, garlic potatoes, röstis, mashed potatoes, casseroles and French fries. Each of them can be varied with herbs, spices or other ingredients. Continue reading “Oven-baked Rosamunda potatoes”
Ossobuco is an Italian dish, originally from Milano. Ossobuco or osso bucco is italian and means “bone with a hole”, a reference to the marrow hole at the centre of the cross-cut veal shank. Most often this dish is specifically made of veal shank, but you can also use pork or reindeer.
Traditional ways of seasoning include tomatoes, carrots, celery stalks, parsley, thyme, onion, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, wine, salt and pepper. Anyhow, you can by all means use more herbs to your taste, just as I have done. Continue reading “Ossobuco”
We have always called this food pot cabbage, although its name could just as well be cabbage soup… at least if there is some more broth used. Be it a pot or soup, good it is anyway! Continue reading “Pot cabbage / Cabbage soup”
There used to be one cat and a lot of mice in this house. The cat didn’t like beef and because of that there was no beef served at the table, only when the cat was away. Nowadays neither cat nor many mice are living here – just one beef loving mouse who could make beef steaks just as much as she likes. And it wouldn’t even be too expensive because one mouse can’t eat very much, even though she loves beef tenderloins and sirloins more than anything. Continue reading “Pepper steak and French fries”
It is easy to make a tasty meal from chicken and rice, whatever the method is to prepare it.
Chili pepper simmered with onion gives some extra kick for rice. Not very spicy, but enough to make it taste a bit different. And everyone can use as much chili as they want. Continue reading “Chili pilaf and chicken breasts”
In Finland makaronilaatikko (macaroni casserole) is one of the most popular home made traditional dishes. It was mostly festive food in Finland until the 1950s and it still is one of the casseroles to make during Christmas. Continue reading “Macaroni casserole”
