I used all parts of the beetroot during my cooking. I made a colorful spring salad where I put the beetroot itself and the stems. I blanched the stems and the leaves and I baked the beetroot itself. The end result is very tasty and it is also very healthy. This dish is a perfect choice, even if you have guests since it is served cold so we can prepare it in advance.
I have not even realized that my neighbor has chickens until he has come over and gave me some fresh eggs. I told him that in the future we shall buy the eggs from him and not from the store so we can be sure to always have fresh eggs. In the happiness of having fresh eggs, I decided to make for dinner one of favorite childhood dishes, homemade dumplings with eggs and fresh salad. We used to eat this dish around May when I was a child when you could already buy fresh salad at the vegetable shops. My mom has made this dish all the time so I learnt from her how to make dumplings that are not sticky. I had nice memories coming back when I prepared this dish. And the view that you have when the eggs are scrambled is not comparable to store eggs, they were beautiful yellow. Attention, this dish you must serve when it is ready, as it is best eaten immediately.
This is an excellent healthy snack between breakfast and lunch or just in the afternoon.
I like to bake pizza at home because it has a nice smell that brings an Italian mood into our kitchen. But it is also good to get rid of the leftovers of the fridge since we can put everything on the pizza just depending on our creativity. I had at home some beef at home (about 150 g), from which I have made a thick Bolognese sauce so part of the pizza I used that sauce. For the other part I have used some ham. I had some mushrooms, corn and a lot of cheese to put on.
In my childhood we used to eat this tasty, filling and cheap dish after a good soup at my grandma’s. I watched my grandma making the dough and then she did involve me in the formation of the dumplings after she rolled them out. Most of the recipes on the internet also have an egg added as an ingredient but I have learnt from grandma that it needs only cooked potatoes, flour and salt that makes this dumplings. Some people also add a bit of baking powder too, it brings them a little higher. We like to eat it pure only with some salt however it can also be a nice side dish with a thick beef stew or with roasts too.
I got to love hash brown when I was in the USA. They serve it for breakfast with eggs and bacon and sausage with some toast. Hash brown is basically grinded raw potatoes, what they usually bake in the oven. – But you can make it in a pot as well on the cooker. They bake it nice golden brown and cut it up for the serving. They normally season it with salt and pepper only. I have made it this time with a twist. I decided to add eggs and bacon to the potatoes and serve it together. This is how I made our Sunday breakfast and we had not even a toast with it. It was filling alone.
Here is a reform cake with walnuts, which is so simple to make. On top of all, it is especially good to make walnut cakes in the winter time since the oily seeds walnut contains as much nutrition as a main dish can. Besides, walnut is also good for our circulation and our blood pressure too, besides it is full of beneficial minerals. It has a high level of vitamin-E which is good for our skin. So we should use walnut for baking or just eat it with cheese and apple, they are a magic winter combination.
In winter we cannot get bored of soups. I would like to recommend you now a soup that does not only keep you warm but it is also healthy. You can also make it without sausage, I like to cook it in in a lot of soups in winter for its taste.
This is a real good healthy soup. I did not overcook the vegetables because this is how we like it.
So, this is going to be the a dish that will simply be amazing on the table at Christmas Eve, because our family members are going to love the taste. On top of all, it takes on time and effort to make it. Further more, it is a light dish, we can even have it if we are on diet, and this is also an advantage during the holiday feast.
