My favourite season has started and it means that I will have a lot of time for new seasonal experiments. How I love the start of new season! I also will be glad to hear about your favourite food ideas! The fall season also means plenty of vegetables. Very rich, deep tastes of butternut squash, kale, cauliflower, wild mushrooms, figs, apples, pears, plums…

This is one of my mum’s recipes. I like making recipes which my mum used to make many years ago for my own family. Isn’t it magical?

While coming up with the next recipe for the blog I realised that I haven’t made cakes for a long time! I wondered what cake should it be and decided to make crêpe cake first time in my life. Because it seemed to be a very summer, easy, light cake but the main reason was that I adore thin crêpes.

Nowadays we can buy any jam we want in the supermarket. There are plenty of flavours: classic sweet and savoury, herbed jams, vegetable jams, etc… I can’t call myself a person who make a huge amount of jam every season, but there is always something magical in “jam-making” process. Something from childhood, which always reminds me my mum and those thrilling feelings that I’ve felt every time i opened a jam jar. Today I want to share a recipe of one of my favourite jams – peach jam. Absolutely simple to make and absolutely delicious to eat!

While talking about eggs for breakfast my two favourite ways to cook them are poached and scrambled. But I love to make every breakfast special. I never make two same breakfast in a row. That’s why I need a huge number of breakfast ideas. Frittata is not one of the boring options.

Summer is for simple and quick to prepare treats because you have so many things to do while the sun is shining and the days are so long. Last weekend was very hot in London and I didn’t want to bake anything, but I had beautiful berries from a farm market and decided to make simple pretty summer sweet cakes. I baked the easiest cookies in the world – shortbreads, made mascarpone cream and added the mix of fresh summer blackberries, raspberries, blackcurrants and gooseberries.

I honestly think that one of the best way to utilise summer berries are crumbles and cobblers. Because it is quick, it’s as much healthy as it could be besides raw berries and it doesn’t need your cooking skills. It’s a perfect way to make delicious dessert when your friends or parents call and tell that they’ll be here any moment.

Summer is perfect for one-day trips, picnics and just for enjoying a lunch sitting on the grass in the park. London parks are so overcrowded in this period. And it’s amazing!
Me, Nick and our beagle Chantal adore to go to the parks on weekends. I like to make lunch, pack it and eat it outdoors. More often I buy a few local cheeses, ham, fresh bread, jam and fruits. I also make wrapped food because it is easy to take it away. I never tried to make homemade wraps so it is my first flatbread. I want to say it’s a genius idea! Homemade flatbread are cheaper than in stores and are easy peasy to make. These flatbreads were made with wholegrain flour and without eggs. Just flour and yoghurt. And they are delicious trust me! It looks like I will never buy any wraps in the store again.

I don’t want to write a lot about scones. You know how much I like this kind of pastry because of their simplicity as well as their taste. Even if you are afraid to make pastry you might make good scones! Few days ago while deciding which recipe to share I thought that I have a lot of blueberries and I still didn’t make any berry scones. What else did I need?

Hi there! I haven’t posted recipes for too long and to be honest I miss it a lot. I’ve had an amazing holiday and now I feel like I might post recipes every single day. The first thing that I wanted to cook after returning was a pie. Flavour homemade pie filled with no matter what, but with crumble crust, and certainly sweet. As apricots are in season and I feel so “over-berried” now I decided to make an apricot pie. I made it with wholegrain crust and added some cinnamon to the filling. Frankly I don’t know what pie could be more cosy.
