Hi there! Today I am taking a break and let Pawel show off his skills 🙂 Zapiekanki (or mushroom & cheese melts) are one of his favorite dishes that he prepares for us when we crave comfort food or just want to indulge. Or when we don’t have much time to cook. Enjoy! ~Monika
I like eating potatoes. I really do. They’re my ultimate comfort food and my quiet indulgence. Just think about it – is there any other food that undergoes similar transformation during cooking as potato does? It goes from unattractive, to say the least, covered with dirt bulb to golden, crispy fries, silky smooth mashed potatoes, […]
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 […]
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 salad is very quick and […]
Although I really like sauces, cheeses, meats and potatoes (well, I was raised on traditional Polish diet, wasn’t I :)), during summer I tend to pick lighter menu more often. And I say “more often” because quitting potatoes altogether is out of the question. Especially new potatoes prepared with butter and some […]
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 […]
Finally spring has come to town! I am so happy seeing grass get grinner, listening to birds singing and actually having some sun during the day. So, to celebrate green time of the year I roasted some asparagus. It is easy, tasty and healthy! Oh, and quick!
The recipe was adapted from […]
This dish is super quick, especially if frozen peas are used. It can serve as a main dish (this recipe yields two main dish portions) or as a side dish, a tasty prelude to something special. If you ever visit Spain I recommend you to taste it there if you get a […]
