Yesterday I went to the farmer’s market and I got 6 fresh local zucchini. I absolutely love zucchini and my favorite way to eat them is to slice and sautée them with garlic. However, since I got 6 I though I would try both sweet and savory dishes so I used 2 for our potato and zucchini soup for lunch today, 2 went into our zucchini and feta cheese fritters (recipe coming next) and I am saving the last 2 to make zucchini doughtnuts tomorrow.
One of my favorite dips and this was a good dish for my youngest (2 years old) to eat a good amount of garlic at the start of the cold season.
It was my husband’s birthday this weekend so I gave another try to one of the most delicious and popular cakes in Romania – the Diplomat Cake. A combination of fruit and bavarian cream layered with lady fingers soaked in fruit juice. This is definitely a must try!
My grandmother used to make this dish pretty often, especially during lent. As a child I was not too found of it but now I like it and, to my surprise, my kids also enjoy eating cabbage and noodles, especially my three year old daughter.
Still looking for the perfect side dish? Rice pilaf is the one and what a versatile food you can add any vegetables you have in the house, add cheese, walnuts, anything you have on hand and it’s great.
I had this recipe for a few months now and I tried it few times with different jams. My family loves it and this is one of those desserts that you make and can enjoy for the rest of the week with a good cup of coffee. A delicious combination of cake, jam, meringue and walnuts.
Another great dessert for the season. Really easy to make and the kids enjoyed having this snack at school.
Usually made with beef, this salad is a staple appetizer in Romania and is usually served for Easter and Christmas.
Fall is approaching so here is the perfect recipe for the apple picking season.
