Homemade Chickpea Hummus

Got a can or two of chickpeas stuck in the pantry? Or boiled a cup too many of garbanzo beans and looking for creative way to use them? Try this homemade hummus recipe.

It takes about 5 mins to make and you get a fresh batch of hummus to eat with your favorite vegetables, pita bread, chips or for further use in other recipes.

For this recipe I cooked beans from scratch. If you do the same save some of the water beans are cooked in and use it instead of water in this recipe.

Beer Pork Roast

Beer Pork Roast

Perfect pork roast made of few ingredients: turns out juicy and tasteful. It is pretty easy to cook, doesn’t require much cooking skills if any at all.

This pork roast tastes great warm fresh from the oven, as well as cooled down. Pairs well with roasted vegetables or a salad.

Marinating will require few hours and can go over night if needed.

Tomato and Cheese Stuffed Pork Loin

Creative way to stuff pork loin – slice it up like a “book”, marinate, put tasty ingredients in between “pages” and then roast.

I stuffed pork loin with tomato slices, shredded cheese and sliced thin garlic cloves for a hint of spice.

For this recipe meat is marinated for about 12 hours before cooking. So allow some time for that, you will not be disappointed.

Baked Cod in Tomato Sauce

Baked Cod in Tomato Sauce

Perfect recipe for pretty much any white fish: easy to cook and turns out tasty and juicy.

I used cod here. Marinating cod in lemon juice helps to bring out nice texture and make sure it is soft.

Sometimes cod can torn out chewy after cooking, but it is not a case with this recipe.

Pair baked cod with boiled or roasted potatoes and a glass of nice wine for a romantic dinner.

Beef Potato Mushroom Casserole

Beef Potato Mushroom Casserole

Not the fastest recipe to cook, but it is definitely worth trying: two layers of potato and beef mushroom stuffing in between, all dressed up with sour cream sauce – tastes delicious fresh out of the oven. And also reheats well.

I used ground beef for this one, but any ground meat will work as well. Just use the one you like.

If you have a mandoline – use it, otherwise make sure potatoes are sliced in equally thick pieces for even cooking.

Mushroom Curry

Mushroom Curry

Quick and easy no meat mushroom curry. I could probably get away with using curry powder, but for this recipe I used actual mix of spices.

That way I could can play with spiciness and taste a bit every time I cook it.

Mushroom curry tastes great with boiled rice, or boiled barley. I even add it to salads sometimes to spice things up a bit.

It is really pretty fast recipe to cook and very tasty.

Jäger Sauce (Mushroom Hunter Sauce)

Jäger Sauce (Mushroom Hunter Sauce)

It took me couple of tries to get close enough in recreating a recipe for Jager Sauce which I tried in local German restaurant.

I must say I love how it turned out: creamy, mushroomy with a hint of wine and a little more than a hint of smoked bacon.

Traditionally, Jager Sauce is being served with schnitzels.

And I found it works great with meat roasts and fried meat, as well as with any kind of potato sides.
