What’s in season

A delicate member of the onion family, with a hint of garlic. Chopped chives can go with nearly any dish whenever you want the flavor of onion without the bite. Great ingredient for fish and meat, rice, soups and salads, chicken or egg dishes, especially on baked potatoes.

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.

Spring is in the air! Celebrate warm weather with a casual-yet lovely- spring dinner!

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata are chicken breast cutlets coated in flour, fried and served with a sauce of butter, lemon juice, white wine or broth and capers. Simple ingredients, but the result are great, delicious, and tasty!

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

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! 😉
