The following special bread came to mind when I was planning to bake a variation of Soda Bread. Continue reading
With plenty of juicy summer fruits available, I usually end up buying more than can keep fresh. One of the solutions for this “problem” is to incorporate such fruits in quick and easy to make breakfast muffins, like the ones you see here.
These light, moist and tasty muffins can also make a great snack for lunch, or any time you feel like having a not too sweet fruity snack. Try them and enjoy. Continue reading
Eggs cooked with tomato sauce are known in many cuisines. In most recipes, the tomato sauce is heavily spiced and cooked for 15-20 minutes before the eggs are added. While very tasty, the dish can be quite heavy, especially if served for breakfast.
Here is a quicker, and in my humble opinion, fresher and tastier, version.
These quick and easy to prepare corn muffins, are the perfect breakfast or brunch bread. They are moist and crumbly, savory and a bit sweet and hot at the same time, and with the added sausage and goat cheese, they make a meal on their own. For brunch, or light lunch, serve them with a green salad, or with a bowl of light soup.
Fresh cranberries can be now found in the market, and I’ve been playing with ideas for using them other than in the traditional cranberry sauce. In the muffins here, the cranberries are pureed whole, along with other good ingredients like almonds, orange and bananas.
This light, fresh and tasty bake is quick and easy to assemble. It can be served warm or cold, as an appetizer or a vegetarian entrée, or cut into small cubes and served as finger food. Continue reading
Poached eggs with yogurt is a familiar dish all over the Middle East, especially in Turkey. There are quite a few variations for the sauce itself, but in all of the recipes I have come across, the eggs are poached separately in water and only then are added to the sauce.
This recipe is different, as I’ve decided to use the yogurt itself as the poaching liquid for the eggs. Continue reading
This fragrant, not overly sweet bread, is a great way to start your day. It contains a fairly small amount of oil, fresh and dried fruits, fiber from unblanched almonds and whole wheat flour, and to top it all, even the coffee and milk are already in! Continue reading
When you see at the store a bunch of beets with the greens still attached to them, you know they are as fresh as it gets. Nevertheless, the fresh greens are not just an indication for the beets’ freshness; they are also edible and tasty on their own right, so it makes even more sense to buy the bunch.
Here, I have used the bunch to create two dishes: a colorful roasted beets salad and savory beet greens cheese patties.
Both dishes go great together, but you can, of course, serve each on its’ own.
