I was never a big fan of sandwich with eggs, I thought it is too heavy for breakfast. Yesterday I decided to go for something different than my usual fry up brekkie with baked beans. I decided to make a bagel sandwich with eggs, fried bacon, and cheese! Now this is what I call the ultimate breakfast… Continue reading Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
I think everyone know I’m slightly obsessed with bacon. I cook it at least couple of times a week but what most annoys me the fact that frying it on the pan sets of my smoke alarms and they go on and on like crazy until I find a stool high enough to reach them,… Continue reading How to bake perfect crispy bacon?
Sometimes I struggle when it comes to breakfast ideas and don’t get me wrong I like porridge, open sandwiches and full English but sometimes I crave for something different. I remember my Mum making delicious and fluffy fritters called “racuchy” with apples so I thought this is it, I have to make them. Going through… Continue reading Apple & curd cheese fritters
Another recipe using beetroots, I hope you guys are not bored yet? But I just couldn’t help myself!

My Nan used to make the best beetroot relish.

When I was a little girl, I used to hate beetroot relish,… Continue reading Slow Cooked Beetroot Relish
I was asked to make a cheesecake with raspberries but without actual raspberry bits inside, well not a big deal! I’m not a fan of heavy dense cheesecakes but this one is definitely one of the best ones I had and picky eater I made it for said it’s apparently “the best cheesecake ever” –… Continue reading White chocolate raspberry cheesecake (with raspberry sauce)
I used to eat a lot of salads and I’m not talking salads with lots of lettuce and crispy veggies, I’m talking about heavy salads with a lot of mayo and sometimes weird combination of vegetables / meats. This is basically what ends up on every Polish table during some kind of celebrations either “name… Continue reading Broccoli, feta cheese and ham salad
When the time comes and I incredibly miss my Mum, times where I feel like packing all my stuff and going back to Poland I cook something that brings me just a tad closer to home. I don’t really like does days, they are not the greatest times ever but they happen. From time… Continue reading Pasta with cottage cheese, bacon and onion.
I’ve been craving cauliflower for a while now, when I saw someone posting a recipe for creamy cauliflower soup I thought it is time to make my own. I have not used my soup maker for a while so it all screamed “you have to make it!”. I remember my Mum’s cauliflower soup with a… Continue reading Soup Maker recipe: Chunky cauliflower soup
Not so long ago me and my friend went to Greece for a girly long weekend, we choose Zante Island. Greek cuisine was mostly new to me (apart from salad, which wasn’t actually similar to how the real one is made!) so imagine how excited I was to try new things! Tirokafteri is a spicy feta… Continue reading Tirokfateri – Greek Spicy Feta Cheese Dip
