Spinach Farfalle


Today I was in need of a quick and delicious lunch. You see, Thursday is the day I picked as my "study day". Because basically, this is the only day I actually sit down and start working on my thesis. I have to finish it by middle of April and I'm nowhere I'd like to be at by now. So I didn't want to spend all my time on cooking so I figured a nice pasta dish will do! And oh it did! 
It is very filling and tastes so creamy and summer-y. And I do love these aspects on my plate :) I was ready with this lunch in 30 minutes!

Spinach Farfalle
serves 6 people (or even more)

500 gram Farfalle (bow pasta)
12 balls of frozen spinach
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 cup ham, diced
1 small container (200 ml) heavy cream, I used Hulala (non-deary cream) 
1 cup vegetable broth or water 
salt, pepper
basil
shredded cheese

Bring water to a boil in a big pot. After that, add the pasta and 2 teaspoons of salt. Cook it until al dente, about 8 minutes. 

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bigger skillet. Add the ham and cook it for 4 minutes. Add in the frozen spinach, peas and vegetable broth or if you don't have any, use the pasta's water. Season with salt and pepper. When the vegetables are soft, add in the cream and bring to a boil. Tear the basil leaves or use dried basil and season the sauce. Add the cooked pasta in it and cook it for another 3 minutes. Serve it with shredded cheese on top. Enjoy :)

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…
