Few days ago Environmental Working Group released Food Scores Rate Your Plate app. If you do a quick internet search you’ll find many apps and website that claim to help you eat better, loose weight and feel younger. I am sure that many of them are useful and provide good information but for most part I am [...]
Apple cakes remind me of my Grandma who made the best apple cake ever. I remember how lovely our house smelled when it was baking in the oven and how quickly it disappeared. Quite often the cake didn’t even make it from the pan to the serving [...]
My kitchen is cluttered and I am not proud of that. It has started quite innocently – just a few magazines neatly stacked up in the corner. I was totally planning to read them, try recipes and recycle them afterwards. Until I didn’t. Next month came and with it next round of magazines. I [...]
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 [...]

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 [...]
