Beet-Pickled Deviled Eggs

The person developed the recipe for Deviled Eggs must have been a genius!

Who does not love Deviled eggs? We do!

Indeed, they are easy to make, diverse and so delicious. They are just a perfect appetizer for any occasion. Moreover, they are “a must” appetizer for almost any occasion, aren’t they?

I’ve been cooking Deviled Eggs for many years, and so far I’ve tried a number of options.

However, I haven’t tried much more options yet.

Spinach Pancakes

Do you like pancakes, friends?

I guess most of you will answer “yes”.

What could be better than a stack of warm and fluffy pancakes for your Sunday breakfast (or better late brunch?). Well, maybe some lace crepes.

Just imagine this picture: pancakes or crepes and a few lovely toppings of your choice. What would you choose? Fruit preserves or maybe a handful of fresh berries? Or what about lemon and sugar? Or would you love to opt something simple and hearty like butter and honey? Or let’s have “dolce vita” and top them with dulce de leche – that would be so dulcet!:) Would you pick a common North American combo of bacon and maple syrup finally?

– Hi there! My name is Ben…

– Hi, Ben!

– …and I’ve got to confess. I am…no, no I am not addicted to alcohol, though.

Indeed, my flaw is quite an issue for a blogger. I am a bad blogger :) I am not talking about the content, its quality and amount since it’s difficult to evaluate yourself. So you should be my strict critics. I think I am doing quite okay for a beginner though.

Hello, World and thanks for all your congrats!

I feel, I feel you would love to ask but hesitating. Congratulations on WHAT?!

This month I am having an anniversary. Last year, somewhere in March, I tried my first green smoothie ever!

Yes, I have always been a sluggish guy. Besides, I had been raising a skeptical eye at green smoothies for a few years. They did scare me.  I used to be disgusted by an idea of having something green to drink, even though I LOVE spinach and other green stuff.

That ridiculous disgusting behavior is in the past though.

Have you ever cooked one meal few times in a row?

That is happening to me now – two days I’ve been making polenta for my lunch, and I’ve got a feeling I am going to repeat this tomorrow. To be fair enough, I have made the different toppings.

Have your ever had a period in your life which was marked by cooking a particular dish for a long time?

This has always been an issue.

Roasted Blood Oranges, Feta and Hazelnuts Salad

Hello, World!

I have just figured out a new sign.

The formula is simple: once you feel the end of the blood oranges season, you are getting more and more panicky. It is such a peculiar feeling I cannot even properly describe. It is not about being panic indeed. It is more about being anxious because you have not worked with blood oranges that often yet. In other words, you are not sick and tired of using them yet, but they are about to disappear. It’s a very disappointing fact, isn’t it?
