• Steamed Blueberry Vareniki aka Pierogi

    Posted in Recipes
    These puffy steamed Vareniki are my mom's or maybe grandma's recipe. To this day, each summer my mother would makes these. I do remember visiting my grandma when I was little, and she would serve us the same vareniki, but they were giant. Maybe she made them that big because she had no time to make so many little ones or perhaps she liked it that way. They are not your common recipes, because...

    Posted in Recipes
    I know I've been killing you guys with this Farmers Cheese Cake all over the social media. It's been one of our favorite breakfast recipes lately. And, well, it was also a dessert and a snack... pretty much we ate it all through the entire day! The reason I love it is because it's so effortless and simple to make. It reheats well, and conveniently can be taken to work. We leave the house at 5am...

    Posted in Blog
    This blog is brought to you by... :) Tim and I love to travel. We typically try to get further away from home, so we can forget about all the daily chores.

      I first tried this recipe on the New Years Eve. My friend made it that night and I just loved it. It's not typical for salads to go first at a dinner table, but this was the case. I knew I had to share it with you guys, because there's no other way you'd understand my obsession. BTW - I don't like olives, but this salad is one of my favorites. Everything here just goes so well together. Tip: You...

      Posted in Blog
      Over the last few months I've been frequently talking about switching to a healthy lifestyle. I want to share a bit of my story, maybe you can relate. I've always struggled with my weight and have always been the "fat" one in the group. After having kids and reaching over 200lb mark during pregnancy, I figured that I really needed to do something about my weight. I tried losing the weight on a...
