Perfect Rhubarb custard pie

Jodi! Compliments from my kitchen to yours! Your Rhubarb custard pie is delicious! It really is perfect! My family loved it so much that I had to ask neighbors for more rhubarbs :). This recipe is from Jodi’s blog lifeinbetween.me with small adaptation. Ilze

Crêpe or Thin Pancakes

In Latvian “plānās pankūkas” (thin pancakes) but most of the people know it as Crêpe. These are my favorite pancakes. I remember how mom used to bake them… rarely (maybe once a month, or so)! If she baked them every week it won’t be special! So, this morning I got up at 6am because of Helmī. After she fell asleep I […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Very Free Range

A few days ago we were visiting Janis uncle and talked about how easy/hard is to keep free range chickens for eggs. I know I’m not that type of person who can remember feed animals every day, and clean after them… As kids, we have rabbits at my grandmother’s house. Me and my brother we gathered food for rabbits, cleaned […]

Happy Chickens & Happy Kids

I enjoy living in the countryside. Yet we don’t have serious gardens or greenhouses or animals…. Even chickens! But still, we manage to eat good food! And by good food, I mean local food! And “very” local 20 kilometers around us! We are buying everyday food like cauliflower, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, beans, peas, and cabbages etc from […]

Cauliflower egg bake with cucumber salad

We like savory breakfast better than sweet. Only Sundays are sweet thanks to pancakes.  And even on Sundays, we start with bread and cheese or something savory and then ends up with delicious pancakes. Today we had veggie breakfast: cauliflower egg bake with cucumber salad. Savory breakfast idea Ilze
