How do you deal with stress? Pre-travel stress in particularly? I must admit I don't do too well 😉 So instead just relaxing and enjoying the most beautiful Indian summer, I can feel how my muscles clench. It's ridiculous. I've been traveling enough to have an idea what to pack, how to pack and how … Continue reading Chanterelle breakfast (toasts and scrambled eggs)
Poppy seed roll (makowiec)
So after months of excitement, preparation, Christmas shopping, Christmas cooking, Christmas is officially over. Thursday was my first day at work after the Christmas break. Christmas decorations were taken down and Christmas tree was left naked in the corner. It was quite a sad sight. I feel in between seasons now, we had winter, then … Continue reading Poppy seed roll (makowiec)
Russian salad or just a veggie salad
I must confess to something. We've been talking here about Polish flavours like mushroom pierogi, bigos, etc. And it may seem to you I'm so into those flavours. Well I kind of am, but only a little bit. I told you I love potato based dishes, so most Christmases and Easters I would eat mostly the only thing that … Continue reading Russian salad or just a veggie salad
Egg Salad Sandwich
It's only Tuesday, but I already think about the weekend. One of the reasons I like weekends is because we can have time to have a slow breakfast. Usually, we eat sandwiches (open sandwiches, only now I realised that in English a sandwich is by default closed, when in Polish it's always an open … Continue reading Egg Salad Sandwich
I try to uncover the reasons why Polish cheesecakes are liked so much. I always thought it is hard compete with food people know and like, but it looks like it is the other way around. I usually experiment on my coworkers. They seem to like it, well they even demand for more. When I … Continue reading Strawberry cheesecake
Strawberry tarts with almond pastry cream
Summer finally arrived into Ireland. It's gorgeous. People already complain it's too hot. You can wear shorts in the morning and you are not freezing. The weather forecast displays a high temperature warning. It's so funny if you think that in some places in the world high is much more than 27°C.
Polish potato pancakes (placki ziemniaczane)
Before I will show you more photos from Italy (it takes ages to decide which ones I like most), let's cook something Polish. You know I love potatoes, I could probably survive on a potato diet without any other damage then getting fat. Polish cuisine has plenty to offer when it comes to this humble veggie. So far I only presented to you Lazy dumplings, but it's just a start.
I still can't understand the phenomena of this cake. For me it's a life-saver cake that uses leftover egg whites that always have too many. I needed to make this cake, as otherwise Tomek would ask me to move out, because we had like a ton of egg whites in the freezer. Other than that the … Continue reading Freckled cake
Tuna, egg and avocado spread
I feel bad. I haven't posted just for a while and then I became famous. Kind of 😉 Thanks to lovely Aoife from Can I has cook? I was recommended in Irish Independent! How cool is that? I reminded myself about my plans for preparing something special for St Patrick Day. I had at least a … Continue reading Tuna, egg and avocado spread
