I know we’re still in October but it is never too early to start working on Holiday gifts, right? Few days ago I’ve stumbled upon this post at the Love & Olive Oil and thought – what a fun idea! Of course I signed up right away because who wouldn’t want to [...]
For a long time I didn’t even bother to try brown rice. I thought cooking it was complicated and time consuming, and that final result was not worth the fuss. Let me add that these assumptions were just that. Assumptions. Because I had never really cooked brown rice before [blush].
I am a [...]
This week I finally managed to get to our baby yoga class. It was a lot of fun, as always. Eryk was trying to sit up always when it was time to lay down. Just ignoring everything around and making his little crunches. So cute. Then when it was time for mommy (entire [...]
Okay. This one is a big one. And I am not talking about these DELICIOUS apple chips. Today for the first time EVER I am using pictures taken by me. Me and no one else. And yes, my husband still loves me and is willing to keep doubling as my photographer but I decided that it’s [...]

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.
The last few days were intense ones. My sister came to visit and we’ve been having a lot of fun, visited Minneapolis (city I adore) and spent some time together. It has been almost a year since her last visit so there was a lot to catch up. Plus – this was the [...]
