   There are various recipes of shortbread. For the dough: 250 g margarine or homemade butter (room temperature), 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 cups flour, 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Homemade cottage cheese

   About useful qualities of the dairy product everybody knows. Cottage cheese so organically is perceived by our organism that is present in almost every diet and helps to maintain the slender figure.For the preparing of cheese, we will need 2 liters of milk, clean (gauze) cheesecloth, two pots, one belonging to another.

   Pour the milk into a saucepan, cover with a lid and put it in a warm place - near the stove or radiator - at a time during which the milk should turn sour. If you say, put the milk in the morning, you can be sure that by the next morning, it will definitely be ready, although it also depends on the quality of milk.
For taste, I add to the pan a couple of tablespoons of yogurt or nonfat sour cream. 

   Then a pan of sour milk I put in a large pan, but about the same height as the space between the walls of the pans fill with water.

            Now you have to put a pan with milk and water on low heat. 

   As the boiling water you will see how sour milk will depart from the edges of the pan, will deliver a yellowish liquid. You've got to urgently remove the pan from the heat, remove the lower pan and cool cake mix. Gauze you lie down at the bottom of the screen and carefully lay out a tablespoon of it starting material. The edges of the cheesecloth I associate with each other and hang the bundle so that it slowly trickled down to the serum. What remains on the gauze bandage and eat cottage cheese.

   Serving with a different types of jam is making cottage cheese lovely dessert :)

Marinated chicken drumsticks in the oven

  I consider that preparing the marinate by myself is safe instead of using ready marinate mixes. There is MSG (monosodium glutamate) in the most of ready to use mixed packages of spices. That's why it is better to blend spices at home, it's more natural and healthy.
   It is easy, but just you need to give time for marinating process. About 10 hours. So, I leave it to marinate it in the evening and cook next day in the afternoon. Meat of the chicken is soft because of it's marinated and view is very appetizing.

   For the marinating mix: salt, cumin, oregano, mint, coriander, basil, minced garlic, red pepper, black pepper powder, mayonnaise, vinegar, upon request, and squeeze the lemon juice. And before the baking I am adding slices of potatoes and pieces of butter. Bake it about 60 minutes at 180 °C.

Omelet or easy breakfast

It is a simple omelet, which takes about 10 minutes for preparing. For two persons you'll need 2 slices of the bread and mix of feta cheese, greens, sausage, 2 eggs and sliced cheddar cheese on the top. Baking time is about 5-7 minutes. That's all!
