Berry meringue bars

I need to learn a lot. I’m still surprised with other people food choices. When I was baking for Great Irish Bake (more about it in Caramel Cheesecake post), I was trying to find one recipe that would be a little bit different from what I usually bake, after all it was a special occasion. It […]

Focaccia

Baking bread is addictive. Every bread book says so. I don’t know what it is about, but even though bread is fussy and doesn’t always turn out as it should it’s the most satisfying of all bakes. I bought lately a few cookbooks. Apparently nature needs balance, so even if I restricted myself from buying […]

Caramel cheesecake

I was thinking about joining The Great Irish Bake since I’ve read about it on Adrienne’s blog two years ago. The Great Irish Bake is a biannual event organized by Temple Street Hospital Charity to raise money for the children’s hospital in Dublin. You know I love baking, but I’m terrified of organizing events, I never […]

Spritz cookies

Tomek complains that stories on the blog are not related to the presented recipe. Well he is right, but what can I do, I don’t have a big philosophy behind every recipe. I love food, I think that food is part of us, part of society, culture, art. By looking at how you eat, when […]

Philippines – idyllic El Nido

For some of you El Nido could be paradise. It is all about sun, beach, palms, super fresh seafood, tiny, secluded islands, beach bars and no big hotels in sight. What more would you like? Unfortunately it wasn’t that simple for me. El Nido and Philippines are for me like a cute, charming guy, who […]

Apple muffins

I want it to be spring. It is almost here, the days are longer and flowers on my way to work open more and more everyday. There is a beautiful magnolia tree that blossoms so nicely, but I don’t know how it is possible when it’s still so cold most of the times. On Friday, […]

Healthy no bake refrigerator cookies

I used to have a blog where I was trying to stop the moments, I mostly managed to stop moments from my walk to or from work. I still do it on Instagram. There are million photos of my favourite bridge and beautiful Dublin sky, a few photos of cats and random photos of bread. I […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! It’s our third St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland. During the first one we did proper touristy things, so we went to the parade, but once that’s checked we are above it ;) It was exactly the same in Krakow. You know it yourself, the more touristy an event is, the least […]

Moist beetroot chocolate cake

I’ve finally managed to go back to reading. When I was younger books were my favourite way of entertainment, but then there was no internet, so it was just easier not to get distracted. Nowadays I spend too much time looking at Facebook timeline, where nothing interesting happens and it is so easy to forget […]

Philippines – Rice terraces

So here we go, after reading about some bit and pieces on our destination we are finally went to Asia. We all live in weird times, don’t you think? We see photos and videos of destinations on the internet, or in the tv, often we even know people who went there, even if that’s on […]
