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
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
Today I want to share a recipe of interesting french pie – Quiche Lorraine. This is a traditional french pastry. It preparing from the simplest and chip ingredients. I think this is one of those pies, in which you can fall in love or be disappointed. I fell in love with quiche lorraine and cook it sometimes. The main ingredient in this pie is stewed onions! It’s taste like stewed cabbage, but softer. You can add or no the cheese, as your like. But the main rule – always cut the onion very thin, because in this case the filling was perfectly soft and creamy. Anyway, try it and you will be surprised what a wonderful are onions in the baking!

For me, spices are an important autumn attribute, same as rain boots for example, or a warm scarf, hot tea with honey, etc. I want to share this very autumn recipe of spicy plum jam with you. It smells so good, that a breakfast with this jam will be absolutely cozy and lovely, I promise! Read More
Sometimes there are situations when some friends or parents call you, and say that they will visit you right now. If I have only tea (it happens with me sometimes) it’s really problem for me, because I don’t like to host guests without treating them with something tasty. I have a couple of simple and quick recipes for situations like this! And I want to share one of them with you.
The beginning of August is too hot now! And I don’t even want to think about cakes. Fruit and berries, all I need now. I want to share with you a very simple but tasty and impressive dessert – roasted peaches with vanilla beans. I propose to serve them hot, with a scoop of ice cream.
I do love family traditions, especially related to cooking. In our family, there is one. It’s Sunday pancakes (precisely crepes, because i prefer thin pancakes). I can just wait for the weekend to decide what kind of pancakes to cook. And I want to share one of my favourites recipes of crepes. Today’s crepes are stuffed with chestnut mushrooms and blue cheese. They taste so delicate and smells amazingly thanks to blue-cheese.
I advise you to make the batter at the evening before, and in the morning only to bake crepes and put the filling, so you can sleep a little longer)
Tart Tatin is upside-down cake with caramelised apples. I don’t like apples in the pastry and this tatin with beets caught my attention. I never used them in baking, but now I fell in love with this tart. Sweet beets with caramel flavour on a gentle crust. I advice you to serve with sour cream or yogurt, they suit perfectly.To be honest, this is my first Tart Tatin and I can confidently say that it is quite simple to prepare, if done carefully. It can be a great breakfast or appetizer. You will not stay indifferent!
