ok
Sunt din Bucuresti,tata a avut restaurant
Mititei se faceau in fiecare zi si le duc doru
Am ceva de adaugat Ca sa fie putin picanti
Se adauga Ardei usturat ,zeama-ardei se taie marunt,
Se pune intr-un ibtic cu apa,se fierbe la foc mic
Se adauga dupa gust
Usturoiul se piseaza ,cu sarea pana devine aproape lichid
Iar gratarul se unge cu "Grasime de vaca ,-o bucara cat mai mare
Se infasoara ca un pamatuf,gratarul inchins se freaca de cateva ori
Cu acesta grasime va da un gust aparte,cand se intoarc mititei
trebuie uns din nou ,the restul asa pregatesc si eu

Anon, Multumesc mult de ajutorul pentru a face mititei mai buni:). Apreciez mult! Imi place tare idea sa fac mititei picanti. Si cred ca gretarul uns cu grasime de vaca face pentru un gust aparte! Nu am incercat sa pisez usturoiul cu sare, dar merita incercat, mai ales pentru cei care le plac mai mult usturoi:).

Multumesc mult pentru sugestii si vizita. O zi placuta!

1My husband and I travelled in Romania in August 2013. Beautiful people and country. For a special dinner party back home I tried some of Ellie's recipes -- Cozonac, Mititei, Ostropel and Salata de Varza Rosie -- all fantastic. Great directions and pictures on recipes. THANK YOU, Ellie

My husband and I travelled in Romania in August 2013. For a special dinner party back home I tried some of Ellie's Romanian recipes -- Cozonac, Salata de Varza Rosie, Ostropel and Mititei. ALL WONDERFUL. We had such a good time -- Roger and I sharing some of our adventures and sharing food with family and friends. THANKS.

Ellie said...

Nellie, Thank you! So happy you enjoyed making the Romanian dishes... it made my day just knowing you tried the recipes:). Thank you so much for your feedback, I really appreciate it! It means a ton to me that you took the time to write... glad you stopped by:)!

Dear Ellie!!! I´m so happy that I found your Blog….
My parents were Romanian I miss them so much especially my mother and her cooking!!!… I cry every time when I look at the telephone and can´t talk to her…
On saturday I have invited the ambassador of Romania and his wife… Looking for Romanian recipes I found you!!!!
I´m going to try several of your recipes!!!

Ellie said...

Anita, I am so happy you stopped by.:)! I can only hope that you find the recipes somewhat similar to your mom's cooking. I definitely can't promise it's close to your mom's recipes, because mom's cooking is always best... but maybe they can be a good starting point... and as you cook, you can easily adjust taste to your liking.

Boy, having important Romanian guests will be a challenge... but cook from the heart! Would love to hear what dishes you prepare. Wishing you success... and thanks for stopping by, it was good to hear from you! You are always welcome here:)....

For quite a long time now i have been quietly visiting your websites devouring your recipes, pictures, stories etc.I always come back for more. I'm never quite satisfied...because if I'm away from home, your site brings me back home in my kitchen where I love to cook for strangers, friends and family.and if I'm in my kitchen you always inspire me to cook dishes that absolutely and undoubtedly thrill all of my senses.So the million dollor question is why am I writing you all this right now? Well, God had it in store for me to come to Montana and I'm here NOW! In Kalispell for a full week and I'm speechless, well, I was the first day I arrived here.it's like you wrote in your entries, it's like in your pictures. It's like I dreamed in my dreams a thousend times over the years, it's that awesome and great. it's like I'm home pe Valea Sambetei in Muntii FagarasuluI in case bunicii:-) Thank you Thank you for all your hard work, dedication and passion.God gifted you and I and many of us with skills and acknowledge and heart and so many other things so we can do what we do best and yes, HE also blessed us with husbands who are always happy to try our dishes and support us no matter what.God bless you and your family.I love what you do, I love who you are. I'm forever your fan. ANA

Ellie said...

Oh, Ana... my eyes watered when I read your kind email. Thank You! Thank you for your kind words, they warmed my heart with thankfulness to the LORD for people like you.

I really appreciate you stopping by and sharing. I am so glad God uses my blog to inspire and bring you memories of your growing up years in Romania. Was thrilled to hear that you made it to Montana!

Montana is indeed a beautiful state... just these past several weeks I've been in awe with the changing colors... such a beautiful sight to behold... the red, orange, yellow and green leaves signaling that Fall has officially arrived. I never tire of the different seasonal changes here.

May God continue to use your cooking talent to serve others. And as you said, HE gave us the cooking to be used for HIS glory.

May you enjoy the rest of your vacation here in Montana... God bless your hands in the kitchen as you lovingly take care of your family.

And you are always welcome here to read, try a recipe or two or just to reminisce about your beautiful time in Romania. I always love to hear from my readers:). Much love to you!

I am in awe of the photos of Montana. I think you live in Paradise.
I came to your site when I discovered the Japanese Milk Bread Recipe. I search for recipes on the Internet almost daily because I love to Cook/Bake and try new Recipes.
I wanted to try it out your recipe because I have a Friend who has a Daughter-in-Law who is Japanese. My friend - is a Real Estate agent searching for a house for us. So when I saw the recipe for Japanese Milk Bread I sent him the Recipe because he loves everything Japanese after visiting there a few years ago. I am English born Canadian but lived in an Acadian Village for several years - Isn't t great how all our cultures and languages are coming together from your Recipe Site? I will be trying the Japanese Milk Bread soon.
Thanks for this website. Your Love and Devotion to the Lord shines out in your words and recipes. How different from many other sites. And it is a reminder to me of how I have neglected the Lord in my life lately and how I need to focus on him with ALL MY HEART AND SOUL. Was it God who led me to your site to lead me back to him - I would say yes. It touched me so much. It was his unmistakable hand - a gentle reminder of what I can yet do for him in my life if I once again give it over to him.
God Bless...
Stephanie in Acadian French Canada (New Brunswick)

Stephanie,

God bless you... and thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to write such an encouraging comment! It was such a delight to hear from you. I was simply touched with your comment, and I know the Lord used you to strengthen my faith in Him. He is ever so kind to let us know how He sometimes uses us in ways unbeknownst to us. I am grateful to know that the blog has been of help to you, not only in searching for recipes, but as a reminder to draw nearer to the Lord God(which is of eternal importance).

It was so good to hear from someone who lives in the beautiful Acadian Village... I can only imagine the beauty there and quietness you are surrounded by. God's handiwork is indeed everywhere:)....

I sure hope you enjoy making the a Japanese bread... it is wonderfully light and airy. My husband and I have had the privilege of visiting Japan twice now and it is one place I would love to visit again. Hopefully your friend's daughter in law will enjoy a slice or two of the bread:)... how fun to hear that you love to cook and bake!

Stephanie, I pray the Lord will direct your heart and soul to grow in the knowledge of Hin through His Word... that you may be a Light unto Him there where He has placed you. May He richly bless you... and thanks again for stopping by!
