Veggie – lettuce tortilla wraps

Finally, a bit better lettuce has arrived in our local store. Veggie – lettuce tortilla wraps for dinner! I like to make a veggie – lettuce mix in one bowl and dressing in another. So, when assembling tortillas, first spread the dressing and then add the veggie – lettuce mix. A friend of mine can’t eat something like that. She […]

Mushroom Omelette

Thanks to our friend Aivar’s dad Aivars (Yes, they both are named Aivars) we have an opportunity to buy extra free range eggs! Also, we are lucky enough to have Janis Uncle that is also having free range chicken “farm” (about 10 chickens). Since Aivars (senior) started the “egg business” (I guess we are the only clients!) we have free range […]

Tuna & Avocado CousCous salad

Another breakfast idea from my heart & kitchen to yours! I had leftover tuna and half of the tomato from tortilla night, I don’t like throwing out food. So I build my breakfast around tuna and tomato :). Now, since girls are in the kindergarten and have balanced meals there (including breakfast) our morning gets lazy and calm. We can think […]

CousCous with Garlic dip for breakfast

Yesterday I had enormous breakfast (don’t know why I thought 1 cup uncooked CousCous is OK for 2, it’s not)! There was too much couscous and since it was delicious, I ate it all! Yes, all that BIG breakfast portion of couscous :). I know that oats are better but I can’t eat oatmeal all the time. Also, I don’t like sweet […]

Omelette with Pumpkin

If you have leftover pumpkin puree you can make Omelette with pumpkin. It’s easy and requires fewer eggs than a regular omelet. Also, this omelette I like better than one made with fresh pumpkin.       Love salty breakfast and Pumpkin Omelette isn’t exception :). Without further ado, recipe below! This recipe requires one quarter cup of pumpkin puree Ilze

Crabstick salad with Chinese cabbage

Sometimes Janis brings such “terrible” thing as crab sticks… which doesn’t have crab in it at all! But… when he did, I’m happy to make a bowl of salad or eat it “terribly” unhealthy on bred with mayonnaise :). Don’t say anything… I know… I know 🙂 If you are interested in the recipe, here you go: Ilze

Savoury Eggy Bread

Another breakfast simple savory breakfast food! This one even doesn’t need a recipe, but I will post it anyway. This is something my mom made for breakfast when bread got “hard”.  We never wasted food (we can’t afford that!) and now I don’t waste food cause I thought well! That is how I grew up – simple clean eating! Now people […]

Breakfast Cottage Cheese my style!

This is my favorite winter breakfast recipe! I love how leek gives “spring taste” to the quark/cottage cheese. Simple & quick breakfast idea. If you ask me I prefer savory breakfast and it’s hard to find inspiration online. It feels like everyone else love sweet breakfast. In our family cottage cheese/quark is main breakfast meal Ilze
