Hash brown pizza

Homemade Foods / Uncategorized

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 […]

Lately I have found myself rather nostalgic about my roots, my culture, my food, my everything that shaped me in what I am today. I have found myself digging for old Romanian recipes, reminiscing old tastes, trying to recreate, to rebuilt those memories. I do miss my country but as I best know it, as a cabin lodge, somewhere on top of a mountain or in an isolated village where daily struggles can’t reach. Nor […]

Summer is here. We don’t really wanna cook but if we do, we cordial. And if you don’t necessarily know what cordial is, it’s this sugary drink made of pretty much everything flavorful, paired really well with sparkling water, or even better with alcohol. It’s super simple to make, it has ingredients you have lying around the pantry and seasonal products easily available in supermarkets. But, before drinks ingredients: 300 grams sugar 300 ml water 1 […]

The recipe is super easy and you’ll need: 1 cup cooked black beans 2 strings of spring onions 1 clove of garlic 1 egg handful of dill dash of cumin […]

Small city. Home of Philips. Unexpectedly great food scene. This is how would one summarize this city in the Netherlands. Really lovely. Super cool. Musts if there: Downtown Gourmet Market, here: http://www.downtowngourmetmarket.com  A super cool place. Rather small for what I expected but really well thought, overall not a classic Market Hall but a cozy, kind of like a big family restaurant with everything. Compared to other Market Halls where you chose your own stand, you […]

Since we’re on a we’re-eating-healthy(ier)-from-now-on kind of thing I came up with this lovely and easy salad, made up pretty much from roasted seasonal veggies and a little bit of protein. This is a vegetarian recipe, but by all means you can turn it vegan by either skipping the egg and the cheese entirely or by replacing them with some cooked beans or lentils. As I mentioned, the recipe is pretty easy, it has roasted […]
