I enjoy cereal and oatmeal for breakfast but sometimes the usual morning grub gets boring. I don’t always have time to prepare an omelet and I don’t like grabbing breakfast bars on the go. I find that the bars are never as satisfying as a home-cooked meal and always leave me hungry by 11:00 am. This recipe is great since it’s easy and can be prepared in advance. You freeze it and simply reheat it on your way out the door.
These blintzes are made up of light and fluffy crepes with a thick filling of cheese that make them delicious and impossible to stop at just one.
Ingredients for Crepe Batter:
3 cups of water
3 cups of potato starch
Ingredients for Cheese Batter:
4 containers of cottage cheese
3/4 cup of sugar
Mix the Crepe batter ingredients together. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into a frying pan and cook the crepe until solid. Then flip it out of the frying pan onto a plate. Once you have cooked all the crepes, mix together the cheese batter ingredients in a large bowl. Fill the center with some of the cheese mixture, and fold over the sides to form a blintze. Repeat until all blintzes are formed. Heat up a frying pan and cook the blintzes. Serve with jam or sour cream.
My mom’s got the best brownies on the block. It’s one of the reasons I don’t dread Pesach, I know there will be something delicious to nosh on. My sister Rivky has taken my holiday favorite and created something even more decadent with it. This cheesecake brownie is so amazing, you will want to make it all year round!
This dish is a fav of both adults and children for it’s creamy goodness. If you want to make it a healthier meal for the fams, throw in broccoli or cauliflower after mixing the cheese in, right before baking it with the crumb topping.
Hanukkah, the holiday of all things fried and delicious is upon us! Much like children who wait for the holidays to unwrap presents, I eagerly anticipate the festival of lights so I can bite into powdered jelly donuts and fried potato latkes. While I usually try to eat a balanced healthy diet, I always give myself the green light on Hanukkah to indulge in all things sweet and savory. When you eat good year round, it doesn’t feel very bad to nosh when the holidays come around! That said, this year I decided to try and make the usually greasy pancake a bit lighter. This is the healthiest recipe I could come up with that still screams eat me cuz I have been fried for Hanukkah! I like the extra crunch the panko crumbs add, however if you really want to cut out any extra “pounds” you can leave them out as well as the potatoes and only use 2 eggs. Personally, I would rather have a smaller portion of something that tastes great then a full serving of something low fat.
You know when you make something that you just can’t stop eating? Well for me, this is the recipe! It’s a pasta salad with a zing to it that I love! Today, we served it at my cousin’s bridal shower and it was definitely a hit. It can be served hot or cold and lasts for a few days in the fridge (although it’s best served fresh).
