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.

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.

I was always interested in finding some new ways to use seasonal vegetables in particular manner. That’s why I like when vegetables and pastry are combined. I’m a big carrot cake lover, I like how pumpkin puree makes simple brioche more flavorous and beautiful, I really like any vegetable breads etc.
There was one recipe which I always wanted to cook, but I never had a chance to do that. Chocolate bread with courgettes. Sounds interesting, yeah?

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.

Strawberry season seems to never end. To be honest I would say that I wanted to make some flourless treats with strawberries, but few days ago I made amazingly crumbly cookies and I decided to mix these two parts. I made crumbly bars with strawberry filling. And yes, it’s absolutely not healthy, but damn they’re so good. I will increase my everyday morning jog, but I won’t give up on these crumble bars!

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!

First week of summer has started and I look forward to how many things I can do with all these seasonal delights. I try to catch every moment to cook something with berries. I like to eat them raw with honey and yoghurt mostly. But you know how heavenly berries smell when are baked? I can’t keep control over myself, honestly! The simplest thing I like to do with seasonal berries is making galettes! Read More

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.
