From the Farm

The other day, my friend, Lisa, showed up at my doorstep with a bag of treats. She had with her fresh milk and farmer's cheese. She had spent the weekend at her dacha (cabin) and it just so happens that her neighbor has a cow. The milk came in a glass jar and it took me all of walking to the fridge before I guzzled some down. So this is what milk is supposed to taste like!

I wanted to make something with the farmer's cheese and I figured what better than syrniki. I followed my recipe (found here) and the result was better than I could have imagined. We all know that fresh is better than not, and this was no exception. My sryniki came out more flavorful than ever. 

I even experimented by putting a teaspoon of raspberry jam in the center of a couple.

I've been making oatmeal with the milk and it's udder perfection ;) A big thank you to Lisa and her neighbor's cow!

I am in love this tin that I found at the grocery store the other day.

Tyler and I can't seem to get enough pomegranate seeds. We must be craving that vitamin C.

If you can get your hands on some farm fresh produce, try making something that you've made before, and notice the difference in taste.  As they say, "Once you go farm, you never go back." (That's a thing right?)
