When I was a teenager my constant diagnose to everything used to be ’’a major respiratory disease”, therefore I have quite a few tips for you whenever
you feel like you’re starting to get sick:
Classic recommendations are usually to sleep a lot, drink lots of water and wash your hands as often as possible. But there are few more things to try.
Your goal is to boost your blood flow and digestion in order to ‘’sweat the sickness out’’. The safest choice is probably a sauna.
You might think that if it isn’t some deadly disease it’s not worth your time to take action…- wrong! My family believes in garlic and its ‘’superpowers’’. Nb! We are talking about real strong garlic, not some mild Chinese… 🙂
Some people put it in their nose or pillow BUT… being sick gives you a wonderful excuse to enjoy some garlic bread with lots of dip sauce. Also, feel free to try a combination of cheese, garlic and mayo on a slice of black bread.
Delicious Cottage cheese and white chocolate cranberry cake with twist.

I made biscuit/sponge dough, because I love this. But you can replace it with butter dough. Find recipe. Butter dough is more firm and you get little bit better layers.
My cake is juicy and because of chocolate is very sweet. Usually I do not eat and like very sweet food. So, I added cranberry jam to balance sweetness. Cottage cheese gives texture and little saltness to complement all this sweet taste.
