Autumn is coming really quickly and with it the moment I hate – the clocks changing to winter time. This situation ruins my mood before and long afterwards. In the 21st century changing the time makes no sense, so I am waiting for the year when the last week of October won't be associated with longer nights and stealing one hour from the already shortening daytime. Because the media is already telling me that in one month we have to change the time, I decided to cheer myself up and prepare delicious autumn rolls with plums and chocolate. This time I didn't use crumple topping. I decided to decorate them with white chocolate and crumbled pistachios. These subtle in taste, not-so-sweet striped rolls remind me of Tigger from the Winnie the Pooh movies, and they always make me smile.

Ingredients (8 buns)
250g of flour
7g of dry yeast
1 egg
75g of sugar
125ml of milk
40g of butter
a pinch of salt
4 big plums
8 teaspoons of plum stew
8 pieces of white chocolate
white chocolate and pistachios for decorating


Meat and vegetables in curry have always been one of my favourite lunch dishes. Usually I prepare chicken, turkey or duck. This time I found an easy and tempting recipe for cauliflower in yellow curry in one of Jamie Oliver's books. Pineapple pieces are an interesting added ingredient. I changed the ingredients a little bit to suit my family. Jamie's recipes are easy and delicious regardless of whether they are shown in a book or film. I think that everybody can manage to prepare them. This recipe didn't disappoint me. Not that much work, short preparation time and the result was delicious. Add some rice and this easy and satisfying dish is ready Uśmiech

1 cauliflower
1 tin of chickpeas
1 tin of pineapple
2 tablespoons of yellow curry paste
1 tin of coconut milk
500ml of vegetable bouillon
2 cloves of garlic
1 shallot
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
4cm piece of ginger
1 chili pepper
1 bunch of parsley
1 tablespoon of oil
1 teaspoon of butter
half a teaspoon of curcuma

In Warsaw if I want fish I most often buy salmon. I prepare it fried, baked or steamed, and sometimes when I want a smaller portion, I add different things and make fish balls. My children eat all these dishes very quickly. Lately, because of Children's Day, I made salmon in lemon sauce. To this day it is the winner in the "fish dish" category. Recently, it has a new challenger. Lemon salmon in caper sauce with broccoli puree amazed my family. I recommend this dish, because it looks beautiful and it tastes even better.

Ingredients (for 4 people)
600g of salmon with the skin
1 tablespoon of clarified butter
12 slices of lemon
lemon pepper, dried dill and salt
Clean the salmon, spice it up with some lemon pepper, dried dill and salt. Leave in the fridge for one hour. Melt the butter in a pan, put two slices of the lemon into it, and put the pieces of salmon onto the lemon. Put another slice of lemon on each piece of salmon. Fry the fish.

caper sauce
3 tablespoons of capers
150ml of 30% sweet cream
1 teaspoon of mustard
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of chopped chives
salt and pepper


Making use of the last days of the strawberry season, I prepared a quick lemon cake with this fruit. The weekend can't be without any dessert, and there is nothing better than fresh homemade cake that smells wonderful and you want to eat it all at once. Sometimes I have to make an effort to hide it from the dessert monsters in my house, to make sure they will eat it for dessert and not as a main course. It is a pity that the season for fresh fruit is ending. We have to wait another few months for more gifts from our gardens.

210g of flour
120g of brown sugar
80ml of oil
250ml of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of lemon peel
1 teaspoon of baking powder
a couple of strawberries
caster sugar


The store shelves are full of many varieties of tomatoes. I like the fleshy and sweet "raspberry" tomatoes, but I also buy other kinds. They look beautiful on the plate or in salads and sandwiches, and each variety tastes a bit different. Today I would like to share with you the recipe for tomato carpaccio. This glamourous and very yummy dish is made with simple ingredients: tomatoes, olives, and feta cheese, but you have to admit this salad is special.
The idea comes from the newspaper "Moje gotowanie" ("My cooking").

3 different types of tomatoes
100g of feta cheese
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper
olive tapenade
50g of pitted black olives
1 clove of garlic
a couple of almonds
a piece of chili pepper
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper


Tabboulleh is also known as Lebanese salad and is a classical Middle Eastern dish. Customarily it is made with bulgur and diced vegetables: tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, garlic and pepper. This salad is spiced with salt, pepper, lemon juice and chopped parsley and peppermint.

Today I would like to share with you my recipe for tabbouleh. I used quinoa instead of bulgur. I also added avocado and a bit of chili pepper. Lebanese salad is an excellent dish for a hot day. It is great just after preparing and on the next day you can take it on a trip or for lunch at work.

Ingredients (for 2 people)
100g of quinoa
1 avocado
1 red pepper
2 tomatoes
3 small fresh cucumbers
1 shallot
1 clove of garlic
half a chili pepper
2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of chopped chives, peppermint, parsley and basil
salt and pepper
