It happened already a few times – I lost ALL my data. Either my hard disk just died on me, I forgot to save something, or kept things on multiple devices in multiple locations, which is not good either. I’ve learned my lesson and now I back up my stuff and click save frequently […]
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 […]
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 […]
Not so long ago I was having a nice lunch in our local diner. This nice lunch ended with an unexpected dessert that I ordered without enthusiasm, because what special can be about chocolate Guinness cake? Not much I thought. It is just chocolate cake, right? So there it was, sitting […]
Gingerbread is an inseparable part of Christmas baking. Its dense texture and spices bring warmth and comfort to the winter afternoons. This recipe has become one of my favorites.

Besides, this recipe doesn’t require mixer and can be put together in 20 minutes […]
As a dietitian I like to know how many calories food has. I forget the number 15 minutes later, but still, I like to know. However sometimes I wonder what’s the point? Wouldn’t blissful ignorance be better? 🙂 Oh.. I am not making big deal out of it. It is just a […]
I like poppy seeds cakes and buns above all, but my second favorite additions to desserts are apples. I love trying new recipes and discovering new flavors and textures. It is incredible how many different ways there are to mix apples, flour and eggs and maybe butter.
This cake hides a surprise […]
I wish my notes and comments were more wordy (yes, I would consider this a positive thing). I could then tell you that this tart smells like almonds, is crunchy almost like a cookie, and pears are very refreshing addition. I would tell you all that just in many more words.
Poppy seed cake is my favorite of all cakes. You can just ask any of my family members and they all will tell you the same. Also all of them used to hide it from me. Can you believe it? Now I am big enough 😉 to make my own poppy seed […]
