Potato pancake

Potato pancakes- perfect with goulash or sugar on its own. Crispy outside and soft inside-perfect potato pancakes. Easy to prepare but a little bit time consuming but definitely worth a try.

Hungarian Pancake

I was always wondering where this name is coming from… Well, interesting thing is that Hungarian pancake is not that popular in Hungary. Citizens don’t put together potato pancake and goulash.

Cauliflower “meatballs”

Cauliflower meatballs was my recent discovery. Very light and delicious dish takes time to prepare but I think it is really worth it. I did not really know how to call it. They are not really meatballs as they are without any meat. I have been thinking on creating a different name but it is…
