I think everybody likes muffins. They are easy to prepare and each time you make them the toppings and ingredients allow you to magic up a new glamorous and tasty dessert. There is another good thing about muffins. They are excellent for packed lunches, and you can also take them with you to work or on a trip. My children like them very much, although usually the tops of the muffins disappear in a trice, along with the icing, whipped cream and fruit. The rest of the muffins go in different ways.

Today I would like to share with you a recipe for muffins with wheatmeal, cranberries, cinnamon and millet groats, which make the cookies nice and crunchy. The muffins are great on their own, but you can also prepare icing for them with whipped cream, chocolate and bits of fruit.

I found the recipe for the muffins in an excellent mine of healthy and tasty dishes http://naszakasza.dietmap.pl.

240g of wheatmeal
40g of millet groats (dry)
4g of baking powder
2g of cinnamon
100g of butter
100g of brown sugar
2 eggs
120ml of milk
75g dried cranberries
a pinch of salt


In one of the books about hygge – the Danish view on happiness – I read that the fewer ingredients a dish has, the less compromise there is on quality. For most extremely simple dishes it is the key to success. Doesn't bread taste best crunchy with fresh country butter, and aren't tomatoes the best with fresh leaves of basil sprinkled with sun soaked olive oil? We can find many examples of great, simple dishes which are prepared with just a few excellent quality ingredients.

Today I would like to share with you a simple dinner dish, which is excellent as a light supper. Its main ingredients are buckwheat groats, dried tomatoes, feta cheese and basil. A dish composed in such a way is excellent. You can enrich in accordance with your own tastes. I added olives, roast sunflower seeds and a little raw sesame oil.

Ingredients (for 2 people)
100g of buckwheat groats
6-8 dried tomatoes
150g of feta cheese
a fistful of fresh basil
10 olives
3 tablespoons of sesame seeds
2 tablespoons of raw sesame oil


Crepes are a cherished meal of my son. He loves them absolutely, and if they are served sweet, it is all the same what I add to them. I may, for example, sneak as much fruit in as I want – they vanish without trace. I serve crepes with cottage cheese filling and decorate them with bits of fruit and chocolate sauce.

Today I propose crepes served inside out. The fruit and dark cocoa are inside, and the yoghurt or cottage cheese is decoration. These brown crepes smell sweet, the chocolate looks extremely decorative and tastes wonderful. My son's admiration when he saw and smelled the freshly fried crepes is the biggest reward for my idea and execution.

300g of wheatmeal
300ml of milk
300ml of water
100ml of oil
1 egg
3 tablespoons of dark cocoa
pinch of salt
4 big apples
3 tablespoons of xylitol or brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of butter


Today something Mediterranean. Bruschetta – an excellent Italian snack, which is perfect as a weekend breakfast or light dinner. Basically, it is toast sprinkled with olive oil and spread with crushed garlic and served with tomatoes and basil. In the past it was a simple meal for olive planters – hard-working people, doing a few hours of repetitive work, toasting pieces of bread over the fire, sprinkling them with olive oil and salt.

I have eaten this dish with dried tomatoes, but in my opinion it tastes better with fresh sun-smelling tomatoes. Try both versions and choose your favourite. You can beef the bruschetta up with avocado, mozzarella cheese or olives and prepare according to your own recipe.

1 ciabatta
1 big tomato
100g of mozzarella cheese
half an avocado
1 clove of garlic
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper


Although late summer has the promise of autumn, I like the last warm days, when the sun is beating down and you can find fragrant vegetable-fruity treasures in orchards and gardens.

In my opinion the winter (which I don't like ) has already gone on for far too long, so I would like to share with you a recipe for very simple cookies, fragrant with the warmth of the last summer days. Apple mousse, with a hint of cinnamon wrapped in French pastry, looks beautiful and tastes and smells even more beautiful.

I found the recipe in the Lidl on-line cookery book, and its master is Paweł Małecki. In his hands even the most complicated confectionary challenges become yummy desserts. However, this recipe is so simple that I decided to face it. You should try it too. Your family will be delighted.

1 pack of chilled French pastry
4 apples
60g of brown sugar
6g of cinnamon
25g of butter
caster sugar
