Dos Gatos Kitchen - A culinary adventure blog

I am Yulia, a mother of 2 wonderful girls, a foodie and a food blogger and an IT Project Manager. I have been blogging for more than three years for various audiences. My kitchen combines lots of techniques and ingredients.

Yulia is a winner of Top 25 Foodie Moms - 2013

What's one of the first recipes you taught your kids to make?

I'm not sure it could be called "taught" :) My elder daughter helps me in the kitchen since she's 2. The first thing she prepared on her own is my special pumpkin pie filling - she was about 2.5 by then. By now she helps me with yeast dough, any kind of whisking to be done and cutting vegetables for the soup.

What's a delicious no cook recipe?

My favorite quickest ever tuna pate:
1 pack of Philadelphia fat cheese
1 pack of tuna in oil
1 tea spoon of capers

Place all ingredients into food processor and process until smooth texture obtained. Best with with freshly baked bread. Ideal for breakfasts or as a sandwich spread.

What's a great breakfast for a special occasion?

I'll be very traditional on this. It should be poached egg, smoked salmon, poached spinach, home-made bread, goat cheese, green salad. And of course, fruit or cheese crunch cake

Have a favorite summer pie recipe? Please share a link to your recipe.
