Semolina Dumplings Soup

Semolina Dumplings Soup - Supa cu Galuste - Roxy's Kitchen

While I’m learning how this motherhood thing works I’m also trying to come up with healthy baby foods for my 8-month old. I just made this soup for him last week and OMG, he devoured a whole bowl of soup (baby-sized bowl of course!). He loved the dumplings but be careful when you make them… […]

Homemade Chocolate Bars

Homemade Chocolate Bars / Ciocolata de Casa - Roxy's Kitchen

If there is a recipe that reminds me of my childhood (in the late ‘80s) is the one for Homemade Chocolate Bars (Ciocolata de Casa). Our parents had to line up for hours to get basic food items such as milk, eggs and bread and sometimes the stores would run out of them before they […]

Breaded Eggplant

Breaded Eggplant

I love eggplant in all shapes and forms but my favourite two recipes are the Eggplant Salad from this post (it’s more like a dip) and this Breaded Eggplant recipe. I used to plant, grow and harvest eggplants in my grandparents’ garden so maybe that’s one of the reasons why I love them so much. […]

Lard Cookies / Fursecuri cu Untura

Filled Walnut Cookies

Filled Walnut Cookies

I have been looking for a cookie press like my mom used to have for so long. I found a walnut shell mold from House on the Hill, another mold from Golda’s Kitchen that you can place in the oven, but nothing like my mom’s cast iron mold. You can definitely use the other two […]

Roasted Peppers Salad

Roasted Peppers Salad / Salata de Ardei Copti

I really enjoy the taste of roasted peppers and this salad is certainly a family favourite. It’s also a very healthy choice, low in calories and a great source of fiber and vitamins A and C.  You can serve it as a light meal or a side dish. Yummy, just writing this recipe makes me […]

Marinated Red Pimento Peppers (Gogosari in Otet)

Marinated Red Pimento Peppers

Making marinated ruffled pimento peppers has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember.  As I was browsing through my parents old canning books a few weeks ago, I found out that peppers are best preserved in vinegar diluted to 3% acidity. So for 1l 9% vinegar you have to […]

Country-Style Pork Soup (Ciorba Taraneasca)

Country-Style Pork Soup / Ciorba Taraneasca de Porc

We’re back from our three-week vacation in Romania… we had a super busy schedule but can’t complain. We spent some quality time with our family & friends and visited many beautiful places – Danube Delta surpassed all! I have truly missed cooking and blogging but I’m ready to come back :). I have so many […]
