Breakfast Blueberry Smoothie

I love smoothies!! I don't even know if there is anyone who doesn't :) We can do sooo many variations, make it indulgent or rather healthy or just stick to the king of smoothies: banana smoothie :P
I went on a cleansing in February and since I didn't have a juicer I drank healthy smoothies instead of carrot and other vegetables juices. I can tell, I wouldn't have lasted the cleanse if I was drinking those amazing carrot-apple-celery juices hahahahaa
But with delicious smoothies of all kinds....Bring it on!!! My favorite was pineapple-banana-orange. Soooo good!! I simply cut the fruits into smaller pieces and added to the blender with some water. Great for breakfast if someone usually doesn't eat or like breakfast because it doesn't make me full just drinking itself. But this blueberry smoothie really does!
Since I added plain yogurt (I used Activia) and some milk to the blueberries and blended it together. Ice goes really well with it, too! Oh and for sweetening I used some cane sugar syrup, around 1 or 1 and a half teaspoon to a 4 dl smoothie but honey or agave syrup is great, too! It just depends on how one likes it. I like my smoothies to be a little sweet but mostly sweet from the natural sweetness of the fruits.

I can never have enough blueberries! They are so rich in antioxidants and vitamins...And so less in calories! Perfect for smoothies and pancakes and outmeal and waffles or just fruit salad...Ah I can never get enough. Too bad Hungary doesn't really have any, if so it's so expensive! So i just eat the frozen version...

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB.
