• Moist Honey Cake recipe
    Moist, sweet and a bit sour honey cake. One piece is enough as it is quite filling. This cake is even better if it stays in the fridge for 2 days as it gets an even richer taste. Be sure to put a thick layer of sour cream mixture to get a delicious and moist honey cake.
  • Travelling to Paris – 5 days with French food
    The capital of love, guardian of famous art pieces and city of famous desserts – Paris. Paris is still in the top of the most visited cities in the world. This capital I visited at the end of November 2018, just before serious protests in Paris… In general the city did not leave a big impression, but the food, it did leave an unforgettable experience… Our small lunch at Louvre museum cafe. We were lucky as the waitress still gave us a morning snack deal which cost about 8-9 euros. It included hot beverage, juice and a pastry. I really […]
  • Creamy Roasted Bell Pepper and Tomato Soup recipe
    Super easy bell pepper soup which takes only 5 minutes to prepare. It is a comforting food which can be eaten all year round. Soup has a rich and creamy consistency with a bit of a sweet after taste from roasted bell peppers.Mascarpone can be changed to heavy cream or plant based cream if you’d like a dairy-free bell pepper soup. Roasted vegetables have a strong taste, but adding vegetable broth will give it a less intense taste. For this soup recipe I am using dry herbs, but it can also be cooked with fresh ones. If you choose to […]
  • Gluten-free Crepes from Buckwheat Flour
    Delicious, light and gluten-free buckwheat crepes! Perfect crepes for a weekend breakfast. They taste good even without filling, just add a bit of butter on the freshly cooked crepe and enjoy.Buckwheat flour is good for sweet and savory dishes, however for me it tastes better with savory dishes. Despite the word wheat, buckwheat is naturally gluten free, and high in protein.
  • Šaltibarščiai – Cold Beet Soup
    My favorite Lithuanian soup, perfect for hot summer days. In Lithuanian it is called Šaltibarščiai, which translates as cold borscht. Usually cold beet soup is served with boiled potatoes sprinkled with dill. However, it can also be served with fried potatoes, French fries or mashed potatoes. All depends on your taste. This pink soup recipe is more for those who like thick soups. Therefore, if you add milk it will be less thick and still taste good. Also, it is possible to use kefir instead of sour milk, but this one you will definitely need to dilute with milk, as […]
  • Japchae – Korean Glass Noodle recipe
    Japchae (잡채) or Chapchae is a Korean dish which translates to mixed vegetables. It is a very popular dish during Korean festive holidays and usually is served as a side dish, but a bigger portion will fill you up. Japchae’s serving is flexible as it tastes good both warm and cold. This dish is prepared with sweet potato starch noodles – dangmyeon or other cellophane noodles (also known as glass, fensi or bean thread noodles) which are made of starch. Japchae tastes slightly sweet and savory. It is combined with crunchy vegetables and beef, but you can also use pork […]
