In the kitchen _ January

When it’s cold outside, cloudy and grey, often one of the best things to occupy ourselves is by working in the kitchen: the kids love to participate; it’s a nice moment spent together, to transfer and share knowledge, to learn and laugh (most of the time); and in the end we have a useful outcome and the stove or oven keeps the house warm…

 
In these cold times, and especially during pregnancy, I often crave for food from my childhood.
And since I am half Czech and born very near to the Swiss border, I grew up with potato pancakes.
They are very famous in both countries and the recipes vary only little. In Swiss style they are known as “Roesti”, in Czech style as “Bramborak”.
We eat them with sweet cinnamon applesauce, with kraut or cabbage, and with tomato salad.
yumm!!
