Pan fried cheese mekitsas

Have you had breakfast yet? Probably yes, but I would still like to share with you my cheese pastries (mekitsas), for which I used Radka Dimitrova’s recipe in the Facebook group “I love to cook”. You can cut them into squares, triangles, rhombuses or clovers 🙂 In fact, it almost doesn’t matter, because they will always be so delicious. One tiny warning – I prepared…

Pork neck steaks in a pan a la Gordon Ramsay

Meat, steaks, meat, steaks … We cook them so often, but I’m not sure we know very well how to prepare them juicy and melting in your mouth. This is how great chefs like Gordon Ramsay do it. On a pan with thyme and garlic. Well, since I don’t like much meat, and these steaks were quite thick, I preferred to finish them in a…

Quick spelt flour bread

I don’t have much experience in making bread and pastries from flours other than white. I think that a different approach is needed. So when I saw a picture on Facebook of a bread, posted by our friend and cousin Anelia Shishkova, I immediately asked her for therecipe. “You eat and lose weight”, Anelia said. I’m not sure about the second, as the bread disappeared…

Ayle Cocoa Pastry

One day I saw on pictures on Facebook of my former colleague and a very good friend Emilia Slavova making an unknown for me dessert – Ayle Cocoa Pastry. I’ve never heard of it and I was very intrigued. An interesting combination of flavors and textures! And the ice cream supplement is my idea. It definitely softens and changes the texture! Well, here it is!…

Classical Meat Lasagne

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like lasagna. This legendary dish tempts big and small. And, of course, it’s a big challenge for people who consider themselves cooks, especially for culinary bloggers like myself 🙂 I have wanted to make fresh pasta for a long time. On the one hand, I didn’t have the courage because I was not sure of the final result. On…

Bagharj – traditional Armenian pastry

The preparation of this cake has a long history. A few months ago I was reading the book “Living forward” by the young Armenian writer Narine Abgaryan. Typically for her writing style, the stories and fates of her characters catch you by the throat. Maybe because somehow the fate and suffering of the Armenian people very much remind me of the Bulgarian one. So as…
