• Steamed Blueberry Vareniki aka Pierogi

    10 months ago

    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,...

    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...

    This Coconut Granola Snack is to die for. I haven't had snack bars in a while, but with this Coconut Granola Snack, I lost my selfcontrol.

    These bars are pretty high in calories, but at the same time, they make a pretty healthy snack. All the nuts and oatmeal will keep you full for hours.

  • Potato Mushroom Breakfast

    2 years ago

    Ukrainians are known for eating potatoes in almost every one of their meals. Even though I've lived longer in U.S. than I have in Ukraine, I still have a weakness for traditional Ukrainian foods. We don't eat as much potatoes as we used to, but when we do, they are a real treat.

    I especially love this dish, because of all the mushroom and bacon flavors, seriously, so delicious. And it'...

  • Quick Buttermilk Waffles

    Let me just say, I am a lazy cook. That is how I am still able to make homemade meals. I cheat and mostly use very simple recipes because I am so darn busy. Can anyone relate to me? Kids yelling in one ear, laundry in another and dirty floors bothering your feet.. I am sure we can all relate!

    This waffle recipe is THE RECIPE I used for every cabin trip and a lot of weekends. It is so...

  • Quick Berry Coffee Cake

    3 years ago

    Last week when I prepared this coffee cake, it was gone within minutes. That weekend, breakfast turned out fancy, my cup of coffee was tastier with this cake and especially kids loved it. They were not very happy when we ran out the cake, so I figured that I should surprise them again. They loved it!

    In this recipe I am using raspberries, but you can replace them with any other berries...
