We eat soup year round in our household – no matter if the weather is warm or cold, soup is one of the staple things I make each week – each week might be a different variety and the kids have their favorites but my favorite thing about them eating soup is the amount of vegetable I can get them to eat each day.
My son loves pierogi and we are lucky to have a really good pierogi place nearby. However, I decided to try and make some pierogi myself and I was surprised of how easy it is to make pierogi. Mine don’t look as polished yet but I can assure you that they taste delicious.
Tomorrow, October 8, is actually National Pierogi Day so what better timing to try making some?
I love salmon! It’s easy to cook and tastes delicious, my entire family loves it so it’s a win-win dinner option for us. It goes well with so many sides – my favorite include mashed potatoes, rice, farro, steamed potatoes, steamed veggies – or you can serve it over a salad; leftovers can be used in our Baked Salmon Patties recipe. This time I tried a creamy spinach sauce and we served it with Farro and a red cabbage salad. It was so good that I completely forgot to take a picture of the plated meal but i’ll do so next time I cook it.
A great idea for dinner or lunch these Baked Salmon Patties are delicious. You can serve them as an appetizer, over salad or in a bun. I made a yogurt – garlic – dill dipping sauce to go with the patties and they were a great success at the table. The fresh salmon can be substituted with canned salmon or even leftover salmon (already cooked)
With the holidays approaching it’s time we think about some easy breakfast ideas to please the crowds of guests.
As long as you have eggs you can pretty much make a frittata with anything you have in the fridge; we tried it with bacon, peppers, kale, goat cheese. So feel free to adapt to anything you have handy.
Chicken Paprikas is a great dinner idea and it’s pretty easy to make. This is definitely one of my kids favorite dish! Usually I make a double quantity of dumplings as they want extras.
I have this recipe from my mom but it’s a Hungarian inspired recipe and there are different variations so you can definitely make this your own and if you feel something else is needed, maybe you have a favorite vegetable you want to add or change the meat type go ahead. What makes paprikas a paprikas is the tomato sauce, paprika and the dumplings – those are an insanely delicious combination so keep those in your recipe.
With all the dressings existent on the market I still prefer a simple oil and vinegar/lemon juice dressing. Maybe I’m not used to it since we didn’t have any dressings while I was growing up, but I feel that the dressing takes away from the flavor of the vegetables.
