A thing millennials are interested in, apparently. But that aside, this is another 5 minute project meant to impress whomever. What you see here is the butter I made on the last post to which I added: orange-rosemary-sea salt, perfect for an extra kick to your chicken; thyme-lime, perfect for your eggplants and stews; sea salt, because one cannot not have enough sea salt homemade butter; rosemary-garlic, perfect for your potatoes; chilli-sea salt, perfect for […]

You don’t need to be any milkmaid to make your own butter. All you need is a jar and some heavy cream. Or a food processor if you didn’t break yours like I did. The recipe is pretty straight forward. You’ll need some heavy cream if you buy it from the supermarket or some high fat sour cream (smântână) if you can grab your hands on something organic and straight from the farm. And of […]

So few days ago, I was announcing a homemade produce series on the cheap and with ease on my Instagram (if you didn’t follow me yet you know what you have to do) and I promise you, it will be fun! It shouldn’t come as a shock that I do spend a lot of time in supermarkets, markets, bio markets and everything in between so I am familiar with produces and prices. And it just recently popped […]

If to remember, my summers as a child were smelling of roasted bell peppers, eggplants, fresh fried eggs, feta cheese, unbearable heat and fresh bread. Watermelon and lots of water. Tomato, onion and plenty of sunflower oil salad. Cucumber sticks with salt.  Smelly ice cubes, peace, freedom from parents. Little did I know that years later I will find myself feeling the same. Roasted bell peppers, eggplants, fried eggs, feta, unbearable heat and rye bread. […]

I truly admire people who can do cauliflower pizzas. Not do as in making but as in eating. I can’t. I tried, not my thing. So I switched to this hash brown instead. I mean, everyone loves potatoes, right? And parmesan cheese. And non heavily fried, non oily hash browns. With no further due, you’ll need: 2 potatoes 1 egg bread crumbs parmesan cheese salt pepper pinch of cayenne pinch of garlic powder pinch of […]

The recipe for the patty follows the one that I posted yesterday. The buns I made them myself but I wouldn’t be 100% confident in sharing the recipe yet, therefore I will come back to it another time.
