Tarte au Fromage (French goat cheesecake)

I found an amazing French cookbook dating back to 1943. One of the recipes that I would like to share with you guys today is Tarte au Fromage, French cheesecake that made in the Pitou Charante region of France. It is a light (definitely lighter in comparison to NY cheesecake made of cream cheese and cream) and just a little bit sweet tart made from goat cheese which is placed in an extremely hot oven for 15 minutes to create the burnt looking top and then turned off to finish cooking the pastry in the residual heat. Doesn’t Β it sound like an awesome experiment to try out? πŸ™‚

Homemade peach creamsicles

What could be better than homemade ice-cream treat? These are easy, delicious and super healthy. Juicy peaches with a swirls of real, fresh cream and a little bit of condensed milk will sure satisfy your sweet tooth. Fresh peaches are a great source of antioxidants, vitamin C, and minerals such as potassium, so while these end up being a late summer staple in my home- it is one that you can feel good about giving to your kids too! Enjoy your sweet summer guys πŸ™‚

Coffee crepes with creme fraiche and peaches

Juicy golden peaches and crΓ¨me fraiche conjure up the sweet taste of summer. They are delicious and sweet as the filling for these light coffee-flavored buckwheat crepes. This recipe is lighter than the one I used to make Russian blini. I serve these crepes for breakfast, lunch or sometimes as a dessert after dinner. Enjoy πŸ™‚

Pierogi with potato, cheese and Hungarian sausage

You don’t have to be eastern European to love this ultimate comfort food. I grew up making pierogi with potato, cheese and bacon bits filling. Steam it and serve with sour cream. They are good on next day as well; just warm it up by frying quickly on the pan. You could make it with different fillings but one of my favorite ones are mushroom, sauerkraut, meat and potato or sausage and potato. Give it a try πŸ™‚Β
