‘Taiji’ cheesy pie

This is my friend’s recipe adapted by myself to utilize the excess of homemade yogurt and cheeses. It seams to be a bit weird combination: sweetened batter and savory filling. But eventually it gets very tasty, tender and a bit crispy around the edges.      Ingredients Batter 400 ml plain yogurt 80 ml olive oil…

Glazed chocolate orange spicy cake

I love peppers, and season meals with dried chili pepper flakes, powder or fresh chilies at any given chance. Cayenne pepper is just fantastic! I made this hot-and-bitter orange-flavored cake for my friends yogis. We had last May yoga practice at the seaside before my short trip to the mountains. A  graceful cat just had drawn…

Herb cheese spirali cooked in the instant pot

For such baked pasta you can use whatever you’ve got in stock. My curiosity was all about making it in the instant pot.

Banana cottage cheese pudding cooked in the instant pot

My mom likes to cook in a super-duper multi-purpose kitchen tool called the Instant Pot. She says it’s a godsend when you want fast and easy, besides healthy meals.

Orange cottage cheese pudding

My friend’s bake! That was a hyper pleasure to receive this delish bake on a seemingly ordinary day! Thank you Eugenia!!:) The hardest part here is to supreme oranges creating pith-and-membrane-free segments (Eugenia told me that processed only 1 orange since it’s time-consuming). As an alternative you can use preserved orange supremes.        Ingredients 500…

Strange things happen.        Ingredients 1 onion, chopped 4 medium potatoes, cooked, peeled and…
