About me

Hi there!
My name is Magda and I’m a blog addict. I started my first blog in 2004. I went from personal blogging to photoblogging to food blogging. I find that blogging is a great way of learning new things, challenging yourself and meeting amazing people.

I’m a Polish, currently living in Dublin Kraków.

I still try to define what this blog is about, so bare with me, but in general I would like my blog to be about sharing the experience. I try to share things I would tell my best friend about. So I like sharing recipes, as food is one of my favourite topics, I find it amazing, there are so many different angles, layers, it says so much about us as society, and I can talk about it forever.

You will find different types of recipes here:

  • sweet, because I have a sweet tooth,
  • healthy, because I try to balance the previous point,
  • Polish, because I’m Polish and I feel people don’t know enough about Polish food.
  • Did I mentioned I love bread?

I also share some photos from my travels. There are so many beautiful places I would keep in my mind.

I’m not a native English speaker, so if anything is unclear or you have any questions just ask.

Wyślę Ci maila z odpowiedziami, nie obiecuję, że dam radę w tym tygodniu, bo ten tydzień mam masakryczny, a weekend wyjeżdżam, ale na pewno na początku przyszłego tygodnia. I dzięki za komentarz.

    Congratulations on an impressive site. The stories and personal information give context to your recipes. Your great photographs bring your site to life but of course the star is your selection of wonderful recipes. I find your site is very easy to navigate and your placement of photographs entices the visitor to visit your recipes. I live in Australia and through your site it reinforces my belief that we are all a part of the same global family. Thanks!
    I am trying to collect traditional recipes for global and local festivals. Could you recommend a recipe that could be prepared to celebrate Polish Independence Day and could I have permission to use it on my site? I would acknowledge that it is your recipe and provide a link.
    The link to my website is http://www.allaboutcuisines.com and I have your site listed on the following page http://www.allaboutcuisines.com/recipe-sites/poland
    The goal of my site is to encourage people to try new cuisines so that they can get a better understanding of the world’s diverse cultures as well as helping people prepare and taste new food. My site does not sell or generate income.

    Best Regards

      Hi Paul,
      these are very nice words, thank you. Yes, feel free to include my recipe as long as you link it back.
      Polish Independence Day is a tricky holiday as we don’t really celebrate it with particular food. For that reason I would recommend Honey Cake http://magdascauldron.com/2012/12/honey-cake-miodownik.html It’s a rich, festive recipe, so it will be perfect to celebrate Independance Day

    Masz naprawde wspaniala strone; wlasnie siedze w domu, troche przeziebiony, i mysle upiec te twoje almond gingebread cookies. They’re quite elegant/simple/beautiful… and your photography is a feast for the eyes! I’ll be sure to bookmark your site for the future. Best regards, Dawid (originally from Kolbuszowa, now living in NYC). Wesolych Swiat!

    Hi Magda,
    I was browsing Poland on Google maps. I stopped in Krakow and visited a bakery’s website. I was looking at photos of their wares, when I saw “Hedgehog Cake.”
    Looking for translations and recipes, I found you.
    Could you please tell what hedgehog cake is, please? I saw it on the website for Cukiernia Wadowice.
    I love to find restaurant websites and read and learn other countries cuisine.
    Thank you,
    Rebecca in Southwest USA.

      Hi Rebecca,
      I needed to check what hedgehog cake is. There was a cake I called a hedgehog but it was totally different from what I’ve found on the bakery website. Because this is the cake you mean http://cukierniawadowice.pl/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/jez.jpg ? They say it’s poppy seed and coconut cake. It has a sponge with some poppy seeds and two types of cream, one with cocoa and second with coffee. I’ve never tried or made this one, but in Poland we have many cakes like these. I found a similar recipe here http://www.mojewypieki.com/post/makowa-panienka It’s my favourite blog.
      Happy exploring :)
