Cheesy Spinach Omelet


I ran out of my favorite oatmeal mix which consists of oat, rye, wheat and barley flakes. They are so healthy and taste okay too ;) So now I got a new one, it is oatmeal + wheat bran. I made it as I would have made it my normal oatmeal and it tasted disgusting. So nasty I had to throw it out. But this action left me still hungry. My temptation to eat eggs won me over so I headed to the fridge to get some eggs and then a super duper genius idea hit me. Why not throw some spinach and cheese in my omelet? That was probably my best idea this week (since it's Monday morning)... It was so delicious I couldn't praise it enough while eating. I was like ooooh-aahhh it is soooo good! It is nothing really special but its simplicity is the one that makes it awesome!

Cheesy Spinach Omelet
makes for 1 person

2 eggs
3 leaves spinach- I used frozen spinach: 2 small balls
1/2 cup cheese - I used Gruyére
Herbs de Provence
salt

Whisk the eggs and add a pinch of salt to them while you heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan. Add the spinach leaves, if you're working with frozen one then sprinkle it lightly with salt and cover it with a lid. If it absorbed all the oil, add a spoon of water and cover it until it is completely cooked. Then add the whisked eggs. Sprinkle it with Herbs de Provence. Wait a few seconds (don't stir) and then add your cheese. When the top looks semi cooked, about a minute later, push one edge of the omelet to the center. I flipped it one more time and when it looks cooked on both sides, slide your eggs into a plate. Bon appetite!

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.
