So I’ve just created the best meatloaf ever. Da Best! At least the best one I’ve ever had. Well, I had a feeling that combining cheddar, bacon and jalapeno can’t go wrong. But it ended up even better than I could ever imagine. I could just keep eating this thing. It’s so juicy with so many flavours, it almost feels like I’m cheating on the healthy lifestyle with a huge badass cheeseburger. Well, I do every now and then but at home I try to eat as healthy as possible. Because I still believe that the balance is pretty important too. Anyway, if you are looking for an easy recipe for the busy week days, this is it. You can make one big meatloaf and enjoy it for several days, just switching the sides. At least that’s what works for me.
Weekend is almost knocking on the door and for those lucky of you it means a well deserved time off. I will save myself this privilege for Monday and Tuesday. Which is actually a really great time to be off as there is less people everywhere. Which really suits my introverted self. However, back to the weekenders. I’ve got a great recipe for you to try this weekend for Kangaroo-Beef Burgers. Because it looks like I’m adapting to the Aussie lifestyle slowly. Well, certainly when it’s about food and BBQ. But what is better than a BBQ with friends and family when the weather is so good? And what is better than a decent juicy burger? Continue reading
Happy weekend guys! And happy weekend cooking! Have you ever tried the Eggplant Lasagna Bolognese? I know that in the paleo / Whole30 community it’s already one of the typical cliches (still one of my favourites), but I still have friends and family asking me about this dish. So even if it’s not any mind-blowing novelty, I’ve still decided to share my own version of it. For me it’s a perfect weekend meal.
When you go to a Greek restaurant, which are your to go meals? I usually try to taste different foods as much as possible, but if I should pick my favourites, it would definitely be Moussaka, grilled octopus and last but not least Gyros. Chicken lamb or beef, give me all. Preferably as the whole set with some flat bread and Tzatziki too.
Anyway, by now you could probably notice that I am all about creating healhier (paleo-ish) versions of my favourite dishes. That’s why I decided to make a Chicken Gyros With Tzatziki at home as well. And I didn’t even miss on the bread. To draw in the detail I used Coconut Flour Savory Pancakes as the base for all the goodness which I am going to share with you below.
I always loved to try new meals and ingredients when possible. But it wasn’t so easy at all the times. Just so you know, I am from a small Czech town with 7000 residents, where the new is not accepted so easily sometimes. Just for example, apart from Czech restaurants, we have one Chinese restaurant and few pizza places in my hometown. And that’s as far as the curiosity of new things can get. I believe that these days it might be better and the young people are more open to the new flavours. But it will probably still take some time before the food mentality changes here.
As much as I love soups, sometimes I have to spare this feeling for stews too. Or pretty much anything with a bit of liquid from one pot. Curry or goulash attending the competition of a perfect meal as well. There is nothing better on a cold rainy day than a nice bowl of comforting hot food filled with as many healthy things as your pantry offers.
I love curry. All the possible versions of it. Meat or vegetarian, sweet or spicy, I’m for all. But let’s be honest, it can be quite a lot of work sometimes to make a nice curry at home. Especially when using beef or lamb the cooking process can take up to few hours. And that is exactly when Crock Pot comes in handy.
I had never tried Shepherd’s pie before I went to Canada few years ago. I hadn’t even heard of it. Wait what? Yeah, sounds unbelievable. I know.
But as I just love to try everything new it didn’t take long and I found this fixed star of western cuisine. And totally fell in love with it. With the beautiful simplicity surprisingly combined with lots of flavor. And primarily because I am the biggest fan of fast savory meals and this one just combines it all.
