Stuffed Baked Apples

Stuffed Baked Apples

I love plain baked apples. Stuffing apples with mix of dried apricots, raisins, apple pieces, seasoned with sugar and lemon juice and then baking them is a step up to plain baked apples.

Depending on apples, baking time will differ, you want to get apples soft but not too soft to lose their form.

Serve stuffed baked apples warm from the oven, reheated in microwave or cooled down as a dessert or snack. They also work nicely as a breakfast.

Rice, Milk and Raisins Porridge

Rice, Milk and Raisins Porridge

This is a breakfast food of my childhood: soft rice porridge cooked with milk and sweet raisins.

Round kinds of rice will probably work better for it, but any white rice will do.

Cook porridge on slow simmer. Don’t forget to stir while cooking, to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot and burn.

Amount of milk to use for this recipe will vary depending on kind of rice and how liquid you like your porridge to be. I used exactly 2 cups.

Carrots, Raisins and Ginger Salad

This is refreshing and somewhat spicy salad made with carrots, raisins and ginger.

It tastes great by itself, or with meat or poultry.

You can make salad more or less spicy by adjusting amount of ginger you use: more ginger will make more spicy salad.

Fresh Broccoli Salad with Raisins and Sunflower Seeds

Fresh Broccoli Salad with Raisins and Sunflower Seeds

Broccoli is one of vegetables I never tried before we came to US. Amongst other foods prepared of broccoli, fresh broccoli salads are pretty popular here.

And I think variation with fresh broccoli, onions, raisins, sunflower seeds and bacon crumbles is the most popular one.

If you wish to make salad lighter skip the bacon (obvious decision) and use lighter mayo.
