Simple tomato risotto

These days, I am on a strict budget. I am training myself to feed a full house on a single income. A 6 month old baby, a large dog, a cat and myself. Since I became a parent, I instantly learnt to put myself last. So when it comes to my dinners, after doing all…

Caponata

Well hello again! We have just gotten back from a break in Lanzarote. It was good to get away but also great to get back. Back to my routine and keeping my mind busy. Lots of inspiration for the blog, recipes to come. But when I got home and talked to friends and family, people…

Best ever Guacamole

I love avocados! I love their texture, their smell, their taste and their colour. I just love them. When I was pregnant, the only thing I wanted to eat in the first few months was an avocado with cottage cheese and salt and pepper. And now for some unexplained reason, I am just craving them…

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….
