Breakfast

Whether it’s a special occasion, or just the weekend, one of these breakfast ideas will be the best part of waking up!

What’s in season

From cakes and quick breads to pies and pancakes, everything benefits from the sweet and spiced flavor of pumpkin.

Great idea for Halloween and Thanksgiving!

How cool is this? Use the pumpkin as the serving bowl for this Rice and Vegetables dish. If you don’t like rice with fruits, substitute meat instead, and add different herbs. Rice can be replaced with potatoes too.

Autumn is here…

Keep warm as the weather turns cooler with these easy fall recipes!

Slow cooker (crock pot)

Slow cooking allows flavors to steep and blend together. It circulates heat and liquid so food stays moist.

Kartofdzhyn

Kartofdzhyn- the pie stuffed with potato and cheese. These popular Ossetian pies are baked with different fillings and often prepared on holidays. In Ossetia they traditionally serve three pies on a plate and only on days of mourning – an even number. These pies are a cult food in Ossetia and have ritual significance.

Love my garden

I love gardening so much, it makes my world beautiful. I have a vegetable/herb garden, flower gardens, fruit trees and berries. When I am outside I feel happy, too bad we don’t have nice weather all year but when we do, we are gardening! 😉
