Today is my absolutely happy Sunday! We’ve got up very early (if only you knew how I love early mornings!) packed some food into backpacks and will come out soon for the all day long walk in the park.
I really love walking. Yesterday I walked 7 km with my beagle Chantal and today I want more!
Fresh air, blackbird’s singing, Nick’s smile, my dog’s barking, picnic on the grass… these things make me an absolutely happy girl. Nothing is better than to eat some homemade food outdoor. In most cases we take some french and english cheeses, fresh bread or croissants and fruits. Sometimes I make wraps (with green salad, salmon, cucumber and hummus is my favourite) or just sandwiches.

What do you know about the perfect pie? What it should be for you? My main pie-rules are: the pastry is melting-in-your mouth, not over-dry filling, crispy crust. I usually make pies for breakfast preparing dough at the evening before. I make filling and bake my pie in the morning. It saves a lot of time.
You can find some my most loved pies in this blog and today I want to write some words about my perfect spinach pie!

What products do you have at home anytime? My answer will be eggs, butter and milk. I also have flour and sugar in my cupboard. It turns out that I always have crumble in my kitchen! Flour, butter, sugar and berries are all we need for it!
Crumble is a traditional British baked dessert, which consists of berries or fruits and shortbread crust.
Today I want to share my simplest sweet recipe. One thing I’ve changed, I’ve replaced all-purpose flour on whole-grain and I have got an amazing result! You can see it yourselves.

I am a big vegetable lover! That’s true! I like to roast seasonal vegetables and serve them with different dips. I love to make green salads: it’s always like a game for me, which vegetables to combine for next time. But let’s talk about roasted vegetables today.

Hi, guys! How are your holidays going? I hope they are amazing, because it’s the best part of the year and the most magical days. I remember how much I waited for it in my childhood. I don’t know what I loved the most – delicious dinner or my parent’s gifts. But now I am still waiting for winter holidays as a little girl. So, I want to wish you Happy Holidays! All the best for you and your families, my friends! Read More

Generally I’m not a “pancake-fan”. But there are lazy days (a few times in a month), when I want to make the simplest and more quickly – prepared breakfast. My choice is the pancakes with berries. Why? Because it’s simple.  Read More

Yesterday the first snow has fallen. I love the feeling when you’re already awake and know that it’s snowfall outside. And you run as quickly as possible to see that you’re not wrong. I love feeling of warmth and coziness, when people run somewhere in a hurry and you are going to make some coffee and have breakfast. I always have some “lazy” recipes for days like that. Today I’ll share one with you. What you know about crumble? Juicy fruits and berries, baked with a crispy crust. But not all crumbles are sweet. This one is with pumpkin and chorizo. Read More

Yesterday, when buying products at the store, I saw ugly, very ripe bananas, and decided that I want to bake a banana bread for breakfast! After all, people won’t even consider buying these unsightly bananas, but they don’t know that they’re ideal for baking! Banana bread has an intensive banana-caramel flavour and a perfect crisp!
Well, for those who dislike to wash the dishes same as me, this recipe is like a godsend! Because all you need for baking is one large bowl and a spoon. Enjoy! Read More

These weeks were so cloudy in Kiev. I like such weather but more than it I like to bake something aromatic and eat it with cup of warm tea or coffee (I prefer a few cups of cappuccino, much more than it’s normal). I like savoury pastry and after my good experience with english scones (I shared ones with herbs there) I decided that it would be great to mix some dried tomatoes and feta in scones. This scones are perfect for men’s breakfast with ham for example or cream cheese.
My Nick enjoyed them. Also they would be an excellent addiction to your hot soup! I hope you enjoyed this recipe too! Read More

I adore the pumpkins! This colour, smell, useful properties…this list can be infinite. Some time ago we were gathering pumpkins on the parents’ garden and I’ve decided that it would be a good idea to bake smth new with pumpkin. And so I’ve chosen a classical french brioche. It’s a french pastry, which is often served with some butter and jam for breakfast. And a cup of coffee of course. So I added some pumpkin puree to the classical recipe and got a brioche with amazing yellow colour and very delicate pumpkin flavour! Read More
