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?

I’m kind of a quiche-obsessed person. Because I think it’s a very good nourish breakfast, like a breakfast 3-in-1. It’s also such a fun thing to choose pie filling. Fish or meat, or just vegetables… Vegetable pies are my favourites (like Spinach-Feta pie or Quiche Lorraine).
I’m not a vegetarian, but I don’t eat meat very often. To be honest, I forgot when I ate red meat the last time. That’s why I’m a huge fish lover!
Yesterday while thinking about what to make for breakfast I decided to make quiche with white fish. I added a bit of asparagus because it’s in season and I always have it in the kitchen.

Rhubarb is a fairly new friend for me. I didn’t know about this plant a few years ago. But someone had given me a slice of rhubarb pie and it was love from first bite! Then I thought that was an apple pie, it tasted very close to apples. I started to search everything with and about rhubarb and try different ways to cook it.

I told you so many times how much I love courgette fritters, did I? This is one of my top-5 breakfast things. I make courgette fritters at least twice a week. I never get enough of them. Also they are so easy to make! It should be a healthier version with oven-roasting, but I like to fry them on non-stick pan and always add some dill or chives. I recommend to serve courgette fritters with soured cream or creme fraiche. Have a look!

I like to interpret classic recipes into new ways by adding unexpected ingredients or changing type of flour for example. I enjoy those daring experiments. The result surprises me every time, and in most cases I’m satisfied with it. That is when I share my results with you. So thank you for your support and experiments, they inspire me much more. But there are also some classic recipes which I love and respect and I would like them to be in my blog.

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.

All the best for you and your families, my friends! Read More
