It was scary, it was spooky and now it is over. Many of you grew up with the Halloween madness but for me it is entirely new experience. We moved to US in 2009 and didn’t celebrate until few years later. I can’t really say we celebrate now but we do try to participate […]
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.
When I was little I hated spinach. Or at least I thought so. Now, when I think about I didn’t really have a reason to hate it, because I can’t remember trying it in a first place (brussels sprouts on the other hand are completely different story). Much later in my life, […]
This is another taste of my childhood. For some reason, maybe because of the Holidays, maybe because I am getting ready for my baby’s arrival, I am making this sentimental trip to my childhood very often recently. Until now I have enjoyed variety of recipes from places where I have been […]

In case you wonder what farmer cheese is I will tell you. It is white soft cheese made usually from cow’s milk. You may find it in “healthy” section of grocery store, unless you’re somewhere in Eastern Europe, then you can find it in any grocery store. Maybe it is popular in […]
When I read that something is great and quick and easy I tend to be skeptical. And then I need to check it and see it with my own eyes before I believe it is true. That is why I am not sure what would be the best way to convince you […]
In Poland Russian Salad, which is known there as vegetable salad or just salad, is served during all mayor holidays and family gatherings. So recipe for two just doesn’t exist. Also each family prepares it differently and there is no bad way to do it, therefore if you wish to adjust the […]
This recipe is from my mom in law. Thank you mom! We (my husband and I) love it, so she always makes it when we visit. The proportions are enough for ~4 people, however we are (the two of us) fully capable of eating the entire thing. So if you really like mushrooms and this […]
