Potato pancakes is a classical Polish dish. Fortunately, even during the most difficult times, potatoes, onion and oil have always been in the kitchen. In a few homes they are served with cream and jam, and there is a more satisfying version with meat or vegetable stew. In my home, we ate them simply with sugar.

My pancakes today were supposed to be dry. It was only a partial success because my son intimated that they come into the picture only with caster sugar. This time my daughter gave the sugar a miss. She demolished a whole bunch of pancakes with ... nothing.

For adults I propose something a little different: thick sour cream, smoked trout and dill. They were excellent. Prepare and try them. I recommend them!

1kg of potatoes
half an onion
5 tablespoons of flour
2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt
2 eggs
salt and pepper
oil for frying
on the top: 18% sour cream, smoked trout, dill


Today a proposal for these who appreciate a slightly less sweet dessert. Concededly, I use white chocolate for my dessert, but not too much. The desiccated coconut additionally softens the sweetness of the chocolate mixture, and the slightly sour taste of the blackcurrant preserve makes the flavour a bit more subtle.

My children, who are for me the most strict culinary critics, ate the desert to the last crumb, even though I made an "abatis" with bitter cocoa, which they don't really like.

Ingredients (for 5 people):
400ml of 30% sweet cream
250ml of mascarpone cheese
75g of white chocolate
4 spoons of desiccated coconut
300g of blackcurrants
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
12 oatcakes
1 tablespoon of bitter cocoa
fruit for decoration


I'm interested in what your mornings look like. Do you jump out of bed after the first sound of the alarm clock? Or maybe like me you fight an already lost battle against yourself, and with difficulty you stick your leg out from the duvet? And then? Quiet coffee, yummy breakfast, or maybe a daily steeplechase with the finish in front of the school entrance? And what are your dreams? Easy morning, maybe a bit later than usual, fragrant coffee, breakfast served and then tidied away by somebody nice? Morning without rushing and daily nerves... Most busy parents probably have similar dreams.

If you work or live in the city centre of Warsaw, at least some of your dreams could come true. The restaurant Aioli on Świętokrzyska Street helps with this. During one frosty morning we took advantage of its interesting offer. When we stood in front of the restaurant just before it opened, my son put his nose near to the door and said dreamily, "Mum, how beautiful it smells here. So sweet and coffee like."

The restaurant serves breakfast every day from 9am to 12am. Most dishes can fill up even a very hungry gourmand. Everybody can find something yummy for themselves. On the menu we found a very British breakfast: SAUSAGE & EGGS. It consisted of small sausages, bacon, fried eggs, grilled tomatoes with basil, pesto, baked beans, butter and aioli dip. This breakfast was especially appreciated by my very hungry son. My daughter was delighted because she got pizza with mozzarella cheese, prosciutto, spinach and egg. I was glad I also decided to go for BREKKIE PIZZA. It was extremely tasty.


Have you ever eaten avocado from the oven? Until today for me it has always been a salad ingredient or something to spread on bread. It never occurred to me to bake it. If you like avocado and have never prepared it this way – take a chance. Avocado stuffed with quail egg and decorated with smoked salmon not only looks beautiful but is also excellent. Serve it on lettuce with small tomatoes and sprinkled with lemon juice. Sometimes it is worth taking a chance.

For this dish you should choose a nice avocado without dents or dark marks. In the oven every blemish in the skin goes black and the dish doesn't look appetising. If you don't like smoked salmon, replace it with dried tomatoes or a large egg.

The inspiration for this meal comes from the Tesco website.

2 avocados
4 quail eggs
50g of smoked salmon or a couple of dried tomatoes
2 tablespoons of minced chives
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
salt and pepper


Today I would like to share with you a recipe for super lemon cupcakes. You can serve them with caster sugar, icing or cottage cheese crème. Add some fruit and you have a beautiful dessert.

And why are these cupcakes super? You need very few ingredients and they are so simple that we always have them in the kitchen. They are extraordinarily easy to prepare. The only activity apart from preparing the ingredients is mixing, and most of us can mix very well.

Only 20 minutes in the oven and you can eat. And the taste is also great; intensely lemony and super yummy. You must try them, because it is this kind of dessert which you can prepare when surprised by unexpected guests or when the children would like something sweet. All housewives know that sometimes recipes like this are worth their weight in gold.

Ingredients (12 cupcakes)
2 eggs
125g of flour
100ml of oil
100g of caster sugar
1 vanilla pudding without sugar
1 tablespoon of starch
1 teaspoon of baking powder
lemon peel and juice
1 teaspoon of lemon essence
