The next recipe is a must for every banana enthusiast. I mentioned before that my company provides fresh fruits for its employees, but as it happens, from time to time, some of it gets left over. I don’t like throwing food away, so most of the times I take it with me and turn it into a cake. Read More

I don’t know if it’s me, or the Winter, but the last few weeks I have been feeling rather.. well, sleepy and more or less in energy saving mode. My motivation, or better said the lack of it, even got as far as the kitchen. So after keeping my cooking as simple as it gets, which mostly consisted of salad or just a sandwich, I thought it is time for something a little bit more fancy.  Read More

I hope you are enjoying Winter as much as I do. I have been covered in snow for the good part of this year, and mind you, the year just began. Well, more like I had to go away to see the real Winter, but who wouldn’t want to wander in waist-deep snow in -20C temperatures? Read More

Now that Christmas is over, it’s on to New Year’s Eve. It’s still 3 days left until then, but occasionally one can already hear firecrackers fired outside. Reminding that it’s time to decide how one wants to spend this evening. We decided to spend this New Year’s Eve with only few people, and I already know I’ll serve something lighter. Read More

I have showed you an idea for a festive Christmas dinner, and today I’m going one step further, to show you something for the dessert. In my family, since I can remember, we used one ingredient which had to be included in all, or at least most, sweet things during Christmas. It’s poppy seeds. Read More

The first snow fell and the world starts looking like a winter wonderland again. We really enjoy this time of the year. Everything look so beautiful, well, at least as long as there is snow, and one can observe the first preparations for christmas. We already visited one christmas market and enjoyed hot glühwein with our friends. Read More

Do you know it’s 4 weeks until christmas? Time flies, I tell you that. In September I was a little bit annoyed seeing all the christmas decoration on the shop shelves, as I thought it was too early. But now, end of November, I’d say it’s about time to start baking gingerbread cookies. I, traditionally now, started with these chocolate cookies, and although I’ve already made several batches, there is not much left to munch on. Read More

Over the years of cooking and tasting new things and flavours, my list of favourite dishes is steadily evolving. One thing however didn’t change. And it’s the love for this soup. It was my favourite when I was a kid, and it didn’t change ever since. My mum used to make it from time to time, and it was the real highlight for me everytime we had it on the table. Read More

4The weather outside seems to be THE topic these days. It’s grey, rainy, windy and everyone is expecting snow. And it should fall soon. When I started wearing my wellingtons around beginning of October during the rainy days I was met with rather amused faces. Well, nobody is laughing now.

Coming home and deciding what to cook, our thoughts fall mostly on comfort food, something quick and warm. Read More

I’ve been meaning to bake brownies for some time now. And this week offers perfect opportunity to do so, since we have two days off during the week, Tuesday and Wednesday.

I’m not as lucky as most of my colleagues to have holidays the whole week, and working on Monday felt like in a post apocalyptic world a little bit. Read More
