Icelandic crepes

This is inspired by an Icelandic recipe that we got from my cousin’s dad. Icelandic crepes are so good and they work as waffles as well. It is a recipe I have been making since I was tall enough to reach up and flip the pancakes my self. Though I do not try to flip them in the air ever. They are really easy to make – the only time consuming part is the frying.

American Pancakes

American Pancakes are really good, and easy to make! And great for brunch as well as breakfast. I make them when I want to spoil people around me.  It takes about 20 minutes to bake the pancakes, so go wake the person you want to spoil up once the batter is ready and you cook them while they are in the shower – perfect.

Bowl of goulash and a homemade flute

Mom’s goulash

I adore goulash in the winter. It is warming and delicious – and it is the kind of slow food, that fills the house with wonderful smells throughout the day. This is my mom’s recipe, so it is by no means authentically Hungarian. This is the perfect winter weekend food. Perfect slow food for a cheep piece of beef and heaps of potatos. I also love making it over a campfire.
