Beef hunter-style with caramelized vegetables and fried potato dumplings

- Comments Off on Beef hunter-style with caramelized vegetables and fried potato dumplings -

Beef hunter style used to be one of my childhood’s favorite dishes and it did stay so, because my dad used to make it always very tasty. I wanted to show you with the platting that from this dish you can make out a real festive dish. My hunter style beef is different from others in that I serve also caramelized vegetables (the same as there are in the sauce) with it.

Cottage-cheese scones (salty)

- Comments Off on Cottage-cheese scones (salty) -

This is not a low calorie snack but its advantage is that it can keep another day without getting dry. I recommend it for Easter for finger food for your family and guests. But of course we can prepare it any time we like. To make the dough is quite simple, and while you are baking it, you will have an inviting smell in your kitchen.

Layered kale – with a bit of a twist

- Comments Off on Layered kale – with a bit of a twist -

I am keen on kale. It is an excellent source of calcium and Vitamin A besides, it has also a high content of Vitamin B. The darker its color is the more intensive its taste is and the higher its chlorophyll content that is the hidden sun energy and source of life. Kale you can get all the year round and you can make so many different dishes out of it. Now I recommend you a simple layered kale that is not only colorful and good looking dish, but is is really delicious.

Tomato-based vegetable soup with hand-made dumplings

- Comments Off on Tomato-based vegetable soup with hand-made dumplings -

This dish brings good memories of my grandma. And of course the half done aluminum spoon that she used to make the dumplings with, as the spoon got half size (half of it was basically gone) by the dumplings making… Already the smell of my grandma’s soup was attarctive, but the taste was just incomparable. This can be a main dish for people on fasting. But the others will not miss meat from this vegetable soup dish either.

Kale & potatoes with meat balls

- Comments Off on Kale & potatoes with meat balls -

Kale & potatoes used to be not one of my favorite childhood dishes but by now I got to like it so much that I make it quite a lot. My German husband does not like our Hungarian style vegetable sauces so to him I always „sell them as a thicker soup. This vegetable sauce is special because I thicken it with its own vegetables and some sauce with a help of a mixer.

Pizza

- Comments Off on Pizza -

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.

„Pampuska” (oil-fried potato dumplings)

- Comments Off on „Pampuska” (oil-fried potato dumplings) -

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.

Pancakes

- Comments Off on Pancakes -

Pancakes is one of my temptations. Whenever I smell it getting made, I immediately have a desire for it. And for me the filling does not matter, I like it all. I have quite a routine in making them, it takes me a short 20 min. However, I like if the dough can rest a bit before frying them.
