Super quick summer Lunch


I'm a huge fan of pasta, tomatoes and food that is so fast to prepare. And what if I combine all of these aspects? Win-win. It was yummy and healthy and so easy. Perfect for a summer lunch. We have basil in our garden and what's better than fresh basil? Ah....It wakes up the food, it gives the tomato sauce a nice kick. Enjoy :)

Spaghetti with Pancetta-Tomato Sauce

1 package Spaghetti - whole wheat preferably
1,5 purple onion - chopped
fresh garlic
pancetta or bacon chopped into small pieces  (as much as you'd like)
4-5 tomatoes - diced
olive oil
salt, pepper, italian herbs
1 cup fresh basil - chopped
pecorino or parmesan cheese

Bring water to boil seasoned with 3 teaspoons of salt, when it is boiling add the pasta. WHILE the water is coming to a boil heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat, add onions, garlic, pancetta and saute for about 8 minutes. Add in tomatoes. Cook for 15-20 minutes and add 3/4 cup of the pasta water and the basil leaves in. Add in your pecorino cheese and stir.  Drain your pasta well and add to the tomato mixture. Toss well. Check for seasoning, add salt if necessary and garnish with a little more cheese.

    I was after a few lines of code where the server would automatically escape/filter POST data before inserting into database. It turns out that mysql_add_slashes() does the job but it causes more problems than anything and it is not advisable to use this function and it has been discontinued since PHP 6.0 - ماکان بند

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…

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…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
