My Tiramisu

Recently enough I was out to dinner. I always think a good judge of a restaurant is their Tiramisu. Low and behold it was on the menu and of course we had to share a portion just to finish the night off properly. It did not live up to my expectations! It was good but…

Mid week moments…

Today I’m feeling a little bit blue. Well not blue but deflated. The week started off with such gusto that now after just two days I’m beginning to feel like I’m in slow motion and the week can’t go quick enough. Yesterday D and I attended some of our closest friends wedding. Such a great…

Granny’s 99th birthday…

So this week has been super busy. We are exhausted but it has been a lovely week too. On Tuesday it was my granny’s 99th birthday. On Wednesday it was my father’s birthday, on Saturday we had a barbeque which as I was working I was about an hour and a half late, which meant…

Date Night

Every few weeks or at least once a month, we try to have a date night. It’s not that we don’t always talk or do things, but we make a conscious decision to sit down and have a proper meal, some wine and a long romantic dinner. Sometimes we go out and sometimes I make…

Dinner 4 one!

Tonight I dine alone. Basically this means I can eat whatever I choose, which while still somewhat in a lazy mood, I am making a Gnocchi and Fontina bake. A slightly more pleasing version of mac and cheese. D isn’t too fond of Gnocchi or Fontina for that matter so tonight I feast on my…

Cookie goodness…

After a few days of feeling a bit blue, I finally have a day off. I always get my Sundays off but lately I have been working right through the rest of the week and today I got to sleep in and have the house to myself. Hurrah! And when I got up (finally) I…

Feeling oh so lazy…

Is it totally awful to just want to curl up on the sofa and have some noodles or cheese on toast?? Well that’s the mood I’m feeling.┬áToday, no foodie insights or inspiration, just a whole lot of fear! It has been three weeks now and I feel that I started off quite well and have…

The Ultimate Bread

Despite having just been to Poland, I am actually going to just write up our favourite recipe at the moment. We simply cannot get enough of this tomato bread. My father (hi dad) arrived this morning to stay with us. As mentioned before, he cannot have any salt in his diet, none whatsoever. My family…

Na Zdrowie!

It is official, I survived my first Polish wedding… (I should actually say we survived), all be it a little sleep deprived, a little bit fatter and possibly still a little bit drunk! I did not get as much as I was hoping for with regards to recipes (sorry dad, no Barszcz) but I did…

Whats in the fridge?

I cannot believe I will be without my kitchen for a whole week. What am I to do? I am hoping to take lots of notes and pictures of Polish food and come up with some interesting ideas and a reminder of home for D. Seriously, no cooking for a week, I am feeling sad….
