Strawberry Ricotta Cream


I woke up early this morning. To start my studying session early. Well, as you can tell I am not studying! I just finished eating this delicious yet nutritious bowl of ricotta cream!
So, as I mentioned earlier I started eating like crazy healthily. It lasted for about a week. I mean the part where I didn't eat bread and sugar and all that stuff. 
Because, really. Who am I kidding? I'm a carb girl! I love bread with salted butter! So denying it from myself is not doing any good because portion control is key. If I don't stuff my face with the whole white bread then I'll be fine with that one (maybe two) slice of whole wheat bread. 
Oh and because I started eating really, really less it resulted me starving! Not at the time when I was in that crazy mode of IMGONNALOSEWEIGHT no matter what. No, it came after the first pounds went down and I got a bit calm that oh I can do it. 
So now, this weekend I also drank on that empty stomach... Not good, my friends, not good. Didn't take much to get a horrible hangover the day after. 
And a hangover is anything but good for a diet! Okay, I tried. I really tried restraining myself from my usual hangover foods like pizza, grilled cheese, well basically anything that has a ton of grease and calories! :D I ate salad. SALAD! Huh.. Such a weirdo. But wait, it gets weirder...
I went RUNNING! Crazy, crazy girl. I also did a 4mile run. Okay, more like walking half of the distance but still. I tried! So yeah, the next 2 days I gave in and didn't exercise at all.
I ate tiramisu, grilled cheese, mug cookie, cheesy omlette, white bread....ahhh. 

But yesterday, everything went back to normal. I studied like a mad person (entrance exam tomorrow! yikes!), ate less, ran and slept. Exciting life, huh? But oh well.

My main point is that if you are bored with oatmeal or eggs in the morning, try this ricotta cream! It's sooo healthy and packed with lots of protein! I added a ton of strawberries, sweetened it with a bit of maple syrup and voila! Diet-friendly dessert for breakfast!

Mash the ricotta with the yogurt, syrup and vanilla with a fork. You should be done in 5 minutes and then stir in the strawberry bits. Add a bit more syrup if you like it sweeter.

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. 
You really learn to appreciate things when you don't have a lot. …
