When we want to eat something simple, we often make a sandwich. When we prepare a fast supper, we often choose a sandwich. For breakfast when we have overslept? – a sandwich. As a result, thinking about sandwiches kills our appetite. This might not always be so bad, but sometimes we really need to eat. Today I would like to share with you a recipe for a slightly different sandwich. Instead of traditional vegetables, I recommend strawberry salsa, and rather than a slice of ham – a golden grilled slice of Halloumi cheese. Only one thing is missing – a fresh and fragrant bread roll.

Halloumi is a Cypriot cheese made with sheep's milk or a mixture of sheep's, goat's and cow's milk. It is semihard and so flexible that it is excellent for frying and barbecuing, and it is great fresh too.

Ingredients (for two people)
2 fresh rolls of your choice
2 big lettuce leaves
4 slices of Halloumi cheese
2 teaspoons of butter


Actually, I don't dig cool soups. My husband always complains that I serve them too hot. cold soups are the exception of course. Until now I have made cold beet soup with chard and a white cucumber-peppermint soup. My son doesn't like the first one. Pink soup is so unmanly Mrugnięcie

Recently, I prepared another version of my most summery soup. Creamy cold radish soup with a hint of garlic and thyme was refreshing and very tasty and only takes a moment to prepare. It is the best with new potatoes liberally sprinkled with dill. It is an excellent dish for a quick and easy dinner on a hot summer day. And it is only a little bit pink ...

The recipe comes from "Smaki życia" ("Flavour of Life") by Agnieszka Maciąg.

Ingredients (for 4 people)
2 bunches of radishes
1l of natural yoghurt
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of minced thyme
4 tablespoons of minced chives
salt and pepper


Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a dish which I prepare for my children on beautiful, sunny afternoons. They liked the dessert with rhubarb, strawberries, coconut crumble topping – but without flour and sugar – especially if I served it with their favourite ice cream. I think I will make it more often because as well as its excellent flavour it has a couple of other assets: you don't need any sophisticated ingredients, you may prepare it easily and fast, and you may use any seasonal fruit.

Ingredients (for 4 people):
3 long sticks of rhubarb
250g of strawberries
4 tablespoons of xylitol
4 tablespoons of butter
150g of desiccated coconut


Everybody in my home likes fish. I would prepare it more often, but it is not easy to find a fishmonger I can trust, where I may buy tasty and fresh fish. Today we tested one of the recommended small fishmongers. In this modest housing estate shop you can buy products from the river, lake and seas and also others from ecological sources. We were not disappointed and we will visit this shop often.

Today we had fresh fillets of red snapper on our table. Raw red snapper is light red, but after baking the meat is white and mild. I served it with green asparagus spears and an interesting tasting salsa with low-salt cucumbers. A big asset of this dish is its flavour, spectacular looks and that it only took 30 minutes to prepare. I like this kind of dish!

Ingredients (for 4 people)
800g of red snapper fillets
6 sprigs of thyme
3 sprigs of rosemary
4 cloves of garlic (unpeeled)
salt, white pepper
4 low-salt cucumbers
half a red pepper
half a chili pepper
2 cloves of garlic (peeled)
4 tablespoons of minced chives
2 teaspoons of honey
the juice from half a lemon


At last it is the strawberry season. Now the fruit not only looks beautiful but is tasty and smells like nothing else in the world. Again we will eat porridge with strawberries, noodles with strawberry mousse for dinner, strawberry cocktails for afternoon tea, and salad with strawberries for supper. Every year I go at the strawberry season with gusto, and after a few weeks I will be fed up and won't be able to look at this yummy, fragrant fruit.

For a good start, I recommend an excellent and healthy strawberry dessert with chia seeds. It is great after Sunday dinner, for afternoon tea, or, if you prepare them earlier, for an energetic, filling and yummy breakfast.

The inspiration for this dessert comes from "Smaki życia" ("Flavour of Life") by Agnieszka Maciąg.

Ingredients (for 4 people)
300g of strawberries
300ml of milk (it may be coconut milk or whatever you prefer)
honey or maple syrup
4 tablespoons of chia seeds
fruit and peppermint leaves for decoration


Everybody in my family knows that broth is my favourite soup. But when I think about cooking and eating it when it is 30C outside, I feel hotter. On these summer days I definitely recommend light and refreshing cold soups.

Until now I have made cold beet soup with chard as the base ingredient. My husband and my dad both like this kind of cold soup. Today I tried a new version of cold soup. Cold cucumber soup with natural yoghurt with dill and peppermint leaves was excellent. You may serve it with hard boiled eggs or new potatoes.

Ingredients (for 4 people)
800g of natural yoghurt
4 fresh new cucumbers
2 tablespoons of minced peppermint leaves
