Palecintas- Hungarian Crepes- and Jordan!



Yesterday, Jordan and I made two batches of these lovely little pancakes!  About 55 of them- we only ate about 8 of them- the rest are going to a diversification meeting at his workplace.  That is why HE made the second batch and cooked them himself.  I love this wonderful delicious treat- but making them by yourself is tedious.  So making them with him was a lot of fun and good times.



He had a good time, as well- even though I gave him a hard time about his first couple of tries and made him eat them rather than allow them into our pile of possibles for the dinner.



Here’s the recipe


3 whole eggs, beaten

1 cup milk, scalded, cooled

1 1/4 cup AP flour

1 tsp sugar

pinch of salt

1 cup of carbonated water(club soda)


add sugar and salt to eggs and beat up again.  Add small amount of milk to eggs, whisk, then add rest of milk and whisk until smooth.  Add flour- whisking continuously – about !/4 cup at a time, until batter is smooth .  Then add the club soda and mix together until smooth and slightly bubbly.

Heat up crepe pan until hot – water skidding across surface when you place a drop or two into the pan.  Drop a small pellet of butter- less than 1/4 tsp – into pan and turn to coat bottom, immediately  pour a little less than 1/3 cup of batter and turn skillet around to coat the bottom forming a thin pancake.  Allow to cook for about 45 seconds to a minute- the top of pancake should appear dry and then turn it over and cook another 45 seconds or so.



Spread with nutella, or creamed cottage cheese mixed with honey , or whatever you prefer in the center and roll up.  Then top with syrup or fruit or just confectioner’s sugar.

And enjoy!

In My Kitchen- November


I haven’t done one of these in months and I’m not really sure I’m really prepared to do one now- but I do have an interest in sharing a little of my kitchen activities…. so here goes!

In my kitchen…



I have a fresh supply of

organically grown wonderful

garlic from my cousin’s farm.

I went to the farm with my daughter in law and

grandsons, had a great visit

bought some garlic and my cousin, Marge,

gave me a bottle of dried garlic powder

to try in my mock boursin cheese mix.

In my kitchen…

Boursin cheese herbs

Boursin cheese herbs

I mix together marjoram,basil,dill,

white pepper, oregano,chives,parsley, and lots of garlic to make up an herb mixture to add to soft butter, cream cheese and a little Parmesan or goat cheese to make a cheese similar to Boursin cheese but is more to my personal taste.



Gourmet garlic- what a treat!

So I’ve kind of got garlic on my mind!
