Porridge is a permanent breakfast fixture in my house, as my youngest one has a bowl every morning. With buckwheat being one of his favorites, I often wind up with a surplus of cooked buckwheat. No complaints here, since the little guy inherited the love for buckwheat from his mama. […]
Saturday mornings are made for crispy waffles! Does anything in the world feel better than your kid going ‘mmm.. mom, this is the best’? Making memories, one meal at a time.. I always look for recipes that go well with 100% whole grain flour, which can be challenging to make […]

Waffles with the addition of farmers cheese (Russian tvorog) are the only kind of waffles I’ve been making recently.
