We’ve been very busy this week. Welcomed kind of busy but still I am looking forward to some down time this weekend. And to something uncomplicated for dinner tonight.
Sometimes I do things in reverse order. I buy something and then think what to do with it. So one day I saw this beautiful fish [...]
Recently I came to a conclusion that I may love summer but prefer Fall. And Spring. Generally weather that doesn’t make you a sweaty mess and lets you enjoy outdoors. Days when I can open a window and actually feel a breeze coming in are the best. Being curled up on a coach with [...]
It is always hard to write after a break. We got back from Poland this week and I am still trying to fight jet lag and get back into my routine. Not easy. Especially the jet lag part.. But it was so much fun to see our family and spend some time together. Eryk [...]
I found this recipe here when I was desperately searching for a quick sweet tooth fix. Not only there is no baking involved, but also no pans, molds, gelatin and such are needed. And, if this wasn’t enough to fall in love with this recipe – there are only [...]
It took me sometime to get this recipe right. My mom and grandma were making it frequently (I love it!), but sadly I never really paid attention so when I moved out of the house – and to another continent – and one day craved my favorite beets I was at a loss.

I may sound a little bit chaotic today so please forgive me. I didn’t get too much sleep and now I am trying to type as fast as I can to squeeze it into the nap time. Funny thing about the nap time, in this house at least – you never know how long [...]
I get distracted very easily. Even now I took a brake after writing this sentence. Ok, it is not always this bad, but to say at least – distraction is not something unfamiliar to me. Sometimes it is because there is so much to be done that I get overwhelmed and don’t know where to [...]
I still cannot get over the excitement that I have an ice cream maker. It is nothing fancy but it is pink and it makes delicious ice cream. And since we’re still in July, which is the National Ice Cream Month (I learnt it his year!) the more reasons to put it into a [...]
Above you can see my attempt to depict the gift Eryk received last Thursday. First thing Pawel asked when he saw it was why there are hot dogs on a truck. He either was very hungry or I seriously need to work on my drawing skills…
Some days are better than others and I [...]
