"Knedle" means super-duper dumplings

It's all about fall. Rainy or sunny, full of golden-red leaves. It's all about pumpkin too.

But there's this meal. One of the greatest comford food in the world, which makes your stomach warm and happy. Polish knedle.

Yep, they're probably high caloric, but who cares? You can fill them with spinach and pretend they're healthy. Or with ham and parmesan or... whatever you want. Really whatever - sour or sweet.

I chose spinach and feta cheese. It's classic and delicious. The addition tomato puree makes them super special. Because who doesn't like the mix of tomato, spinach and feta?

So here you go. Tomato knedle with spinach and feta cheese. Aka super-duper dumplings.

500 g boiled potatoes
2 tablespoons tomato puree
1 cup flour
1 egg
300 g spinach
20 g feta cheese
2 garlic cloves
1 onion
olive oil, salt and pepper

 Garlic and onion cut into small pieces, add in a pan with heated olive oil. Add spinach, fry for a while, season with salt and pepper. Add feta cheese cutted into cubes.
Squash boiled potatoes, combine with egg, tomato puree and flour - it should look and feel almost like a cake dough. If necessary, add some flour.
 Knead the dough. Form a little balls from it. Flatten the ball, add a teaspoon od spinach filling, bind the edges and form a ball again.
Put in boiling (salted) water until they emerge from it.

You can serve them with butter or some meat, or salad. Just as you wish.


Garlic breadrolls

There's nothing better than eating hot, home-baked breadrolls for breakfast. (Well, maybe eating hot, home-baked bread, but lets save this for later.)

Smell, which fills your home is great, but this garlic butter taste... amazing. You can also skip adding garlic butter and have a regular breadrolls, but who wants that?

400 g all purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
0,5 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry yeast
1 cup (250 ml) milk
30 g butter (2,5 tablespoon)

Mix all ingredients together, leave covered for at least 1,5 hour. Dough should double the size. 
Divide for 12 parts. Form into balls, leave covered once again, but this time - for 30 minutes.  

Garlic butter: 

100 g butter
2 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons dry Boar's Garlic

back to school: digestive cookies

Wholewheat, healthy cookies.
They're not so sweet, but you can add more sugar or pour on them some melted chocolate.
Best part? You can eat them without feeling guilty or smuggle something healthy for kids and they won't know it.

Pack as a snack for little ones to school. Or... eat a cookie yourself. With milk. Because, why not?

175 g whole wheat flour
50 g all purpose flour
50 g grounded oat flakes or wheat brans
0,5 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
100 g soft butter
10 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons milk

Whisk flours, sugar, salt, wheat/osat flakes and baking soda. Add milk + butter and knead until you will have a ball of dough. Roll out the dough, so it'll be 4 cm thick. Cut with a form (5cm).

Bake at 180 C degrees or 350 F for 10-15 minutes.
