My Nan used to make the best beetroot relish. In Poland we serve beetroot relishes as a side dish, typically on a Sunday with either fried chicken legs or “mielone” mince meat patties (like a meat loaf with shape similar to fish cakes). 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

Tirokafteri is a spicy feta… Continue reading Tirokfateri – Greek Spicy Feta Cheese Dip

If I’m right the name “Saganaki” comes from the clay pot the dish is cooked in, so it’s important to specify what kind of Saganaki you would like to try. As I expected, it was absolutely delicious… Continue reading Greek Prawn Saganaki
This is no secret that I love bacon……a lot of bacon actually, so this should not come as a surprise. I’m sharing with you today this delicious French classic, great combination of savoury shortcrust pastry, eggs and bacon! It’s great served either hot or cold and if you have any leftovers it will make a perfect… Continue reading Quiche Lorraine
If you follow me on Instagram you probably noticed that I recently posted a photo of my quick dinner/lunch to work. I thought it would be good if I post a quick and easy recipe for dinner or lunch you can take to work the next day. I don’t always have a time to set… Continue reading Instagram lunch recipe – vegetarian curry / wegetariańskie curry
Are you guys as much into Instagram as much as I am? I love it and for a big part of my blogging break I was a bit more active there. I like it more than any other social media channel right now for a simple reason – it’s easy to use and more engaging… Continue reading Instagram lately!
