Salted cake is one of our family favorites. It is pretty easy and turns out great with salad and soup. Easy to prepare and eat while standing in a crowd and makes a perfect school snack!
I used parsley, pepperoni chunks, green pepper and feta cheese. Actually, I used different toppings each time. Grated potato, mozarella cheese, bell pepper, olive..and also different herbs like mint, basil, oregano. Create your own topping. You can get as creative as you want. It's the the fun part.
Keep the left over in the fride. After a couple of days, you will still enjoy the taste of it. We ate most of it the day after.
3 large eggs
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/3 cup flour
salt and pepper
1 tsp garlic /minced
feta cheese /crumbled, black olive, green pepper (sliced)
2 handfulls of fresh parsley(or mixed herbs-basil, chive and parsley) chopped
1/2 cup chopped pepperoni
Preheat the oven to 350 F
Mix the egg, oil and milk in a bowl. Add salt, pepper and garlic.
Add the baking powder to the flour in another bowl and combine it with the egg mixture. Finally, add half of the herbs to the dough. Place it in a bread pan and top with the rest of herbs, cheese crumbs, olives, green pepper and pepperoni on it. Hmmmmm. Smells delicious while baking. Serve the cake cold and sliced on your Thanksgiving table.

I used to love stopping by Panera Bread in New York . Especially winter time and having their yummy creamy potato soup. Last week I came up with my own version of this soup:) I believe that the carrot gave extra benefit and taste to it.
potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 small carrot, cubed
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese or sour cream (room temperature)
Pepperoni (cubed) or Bacon/ cooked and crumbled/ 3 slices or more (optional, but makes it really good, especially pepperoni and bacon lovers like my son)
Combine chicken broth, potatoes, carrot cubes and spices in a small pot. Boil until potatoes and carrots are tender. If you like your soup smooth, here is a little tip: Smash some potato cubes for thickening. Add cream cheese. Keep stirring until the cheese melts. Ready to serve. Sprinkle a little pepperoni or bacon over each bowl of soup. Extra pepperoni this time for Aria!!!

After my mom passed away, we moved to the next city which my sister and brother live in. April brings new things to my life every year!
Zoey was barely breathing when she got back home and slept all afternoon until Aria was back from school.
Last month of school year! What a tough winter it was! Can't wait for hot summer days. Sun, beach, stepping on sand, ice-cream, ice-coffees and Pina colada!! Spending time with family members, good friends and also good food, yummy recipes from yonca's kitchen :-)
You're all welcome!
Anything I forgot?
