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 […]

Fried potatoes – Latvian style

This is our comfort food! Childhood memories! Thursday – Friday nights at students dormitories kitchen. Why? Cause no money left for something else, good if you have oil and potatoes from home. So, this dish is the main cause, cause for others than Latvians it might look like a side dish :). So simple, that you might want to add ham […]

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.

I wonder is it hard to make tortilla at home?! Cause I’m buying tortillas and make the filling. Our favorite filling is tuna […]

CousCous with Garlic dip for breakfast

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 […]

Banana and Honey Muffins

If you follow my blog on daily bases you know I didn’t like Banana bread or banana “something” until I’ve tried banana muffins! The result was so Yummy that I decide to repeat that recipe and take it to the next level – for me, it’s a bit healthier version :). I loved the aftertaste of honey! Realy!   I can’t […]

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
