Last Saturday I was lazy and I didn't have any culinary ideas. When I asked my children what they would like for dinner, they answered "Pizza!". Strangely enough, this rarely happens nowadays. Unfortunately, they couldn't agree what should be on the pizza. I made the decision – otherwise I would have to add every kind of meat, ham, some shrimps and half a vegetable market.

Recently, asparagus spears have become a permanent product in my kitchen, so I decided that they would be the main ingredient of my pizza. I added to them some salami, two kinds of cheese and black olives. At first sight it is an unconventional combination, but it was surprisingly tasty. It was so yummy that my impressed daughter forgot to cover everything with ketchup.

ready pizza base
1 tin of tomatoes (cubed)
half an onion
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of oil
1 tablespoon of butter
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
150g of sliced salami

black olives


Even during the most intense heat we would like to eat something sweet for dessert. Usually, the first choice is ice-cream. However, even though it is perhaps difficult to believe, sometimes you are fed up even with ice-cream.

In this kind of "difficult" situation you should reach for fruit. Today I would like to share with you a recipe for fruit mousse with a hint of coconut. You should serve it strongly chilled. It is perfectly refreshing and supplements the microelements which we lose when it is hot. The sweetness of the dessert hinges on the degree of ripeness of the fruit. If you don't have perfectly ripe, juicy fruit, you may add a bit of honey or maple syrup.

Ingredients (for 4 people):
1 big mango
1 pineapple
400g of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
honey or maple syrup
fruit for decoration


Today I would like to share with you the recipe for small pies. I wanted to make the stuffing without meat, so I chose chickpeas. They are a rich source of protein, they reduce blood pressure and cholesterol level. They also have a low glycaemic level and the fibre steadies the sugar level in the blood. You should remember its assets and add it to your daily diet.


Serve the pies with your favourite dip and vegetables. They taste the best hot, but we discovered that they are great cold and you may also reheat them.

Ingredients (12 pieces)
1 pack of chilled French pastry
200g of chickpeas
half a red pepper
2 cloves of garlic
half an onion
4 dried tomatoes from olive oil
3 tablespoons of olive oil from the tomatoes
6-8 black olives
1 tablespoon of butter
2 tablespoons of milk


This recipe for coffee cheesecake has waited for its turn a long time. In winter we wanted heavier and sweeter cakes. The nearer the summer, the lighter our diet becomes, so cakes are also a bit less solid. Cakes with fruit, cheesecakes and cakes that require "no baking" are a great part of this trend.

This dessert, because of the shot of coffee, is better for adult gourmands. For children I recommend using Inka coffee (chicory coffee) or instant cocoa. If you add dry granular coffee to the cheese, you will find small colourful dots in the cheesecake. If you would like to make a smooth cake, dissolve the coffee in a spot of water.

The recipe for this cake comes from

1kg of grated curd cheese
200g of butter
150g of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of potato flour
4 tablespoons of granular coffee
150g of dark chocolate
150ml of 30% sweet cream
4 tablespoons of desiccated coconuts
fruit for decoration


Since the beginning of March I have been impatiently waiting for Spring. This year it kept us waiting a very long time. During the long May weekend we still had to bundle up. But finally it has come and for a few days we have been spoilt by sunny weather.

The spring is not only about changing our clothes. Many of us feel the coming warm days also changes our daily diet. We willingly reach for vegetables, fruit, cleansing cocktails and refreshing salads.

Today I would like to share with you a recipe for a weekend breakfast, with yummy green asparagus spears, which is both energizing and light. Serve it with slices of granary toast or without, and eat it slowly and lazily in nice company. I think that in spring the nicest thing is to enjoy the small pleasures.

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

Ingredients (for 2 people)
4 eggs
10 green asparagus spears
1 teaspoon of fresh minced rosemary
2 tablespoons of minced chives
4 tablespoons of grated mozzarella cheese
10 cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons of butter
salt and pepper
