We like pancakes. My son likes them with sugar regardless of what kind of pancakes I prepare. Today I decided to encourage him to eat some pancakes with something else. I prepared spicy vegetable pancakes. Unfortunately, I underestimated my son. For him, sugar goes with every kind of pancake. The rest of our family ate them with natural Greek yoghurt. I think that they would be excellent with stew, cucumber salsa or fresh salad.

One of the ingredients of these pancakes is nigella, which is increasingly in our kitchen. As well as the taste properties, nigella can be used as an alternative to pepper. Reportedly, it also has healing properties. It has a soothing effect on gastric mucosa, protects the liver and the kidneys and helps alleviate allergies and skin problems. Additionally, cauliflower acts as a decoration in pancakes with millet groats.

The recipe comes from www.naszakasza.pl

Ingredients (15 pancakes)
100g of millet groats
200g of cauliflower
4 tablespoons of wholemeal flour
half an onion
a clove of garlic
3 teaspoons of nigella
2 eggs
salt and pepper


One of our friends said recently that he doesn't cook for himself. He eats what his wife prepares: sometimes it is something healthy and other times something yummy. It was a joke, of course, because his wife cooks really well, but this sentence is now in our friendly canon of jokes.

Inspired by our talk about groats, flakes and healthy food, I prepared a dessert which combines excellent taste and healthy ingredients. The original recipe comes from the Lidl cookery book. I would like to share with you my version of this dish. I recommend Crème brûlée with millet groats to everybody who counts calories. It is mild, not too sweet, wonderfully creamy inside and with an incredible crunchy crust on top. That's why we love crème brûlée, don't we? I prepared a cranberry-orange preserve to offset the sweetness of the dessert. The whole dessert looked beautiful and tasted perfect.

Ingredients (for 4 people)
crème brûlée
100g of dry millet groats
350ml of almond milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2-3 tablespoons of brown sugar (3 additional tablespoons for the sugar crust)
juice and skin from one orange


Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a snack which you can grab and eat "on the go". I know that it is unhealthy. We should celebrate eating and eat calmly and with deliberation. However, sometimes the day is too short for everything on our schedule and we still have to eat. Admittedly, we can sin and go for some fast food, but it is healthier and tastier to prepare something quickly in our own kitchen.

Today, camembert cheese and cranberries in a fresh, crunchy roll take the lead role. It sounds easy and yummy, doesn't it? Try it and get on with your day Uśmiech. Today I used a homemade cranberry preserve which was left over from dessert, but if you like you can buy your own.

2 fresh rolls (your favourite ones)
150g of camembert cheese
1 handful of lettuce
2 teaspoons of butter
2 teaspoons of pine nuts or sunflower seeds
100g of fresh cranberries
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
100ml of apple juice


I feel cheated by the weather. I am still waiting for the golden Polish autumn, which is my favourite season, and I have misgivings that this year I will not get it at all. A few faint sunny moments can't replace the powerful autumn high, which warms the air and paints the trees golden and red. Instead we have a depressing, rainy low, changing the beautiful, rustling leaves into not so beautiful mud.

If the weather doesn't help us, we need to find another way. Good, fragrant coffee, meeting friends, a shopping spree – choose something for yourself. I have an offer for people who need good, sweet food to make their day. I invite you to enjoy a very chocolaty oreo cake. The recipe comes from www.kulinarnamaniusia.pl.

Ingredients (15cm cake tin):
100 g of flour
1 egg
60g of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt
40ml of oil
40ml of milk
80g of dark chocolate
1 teaspoon of baking powder
6 oreo cookies


Even though I would like to change the situation, the winter is coming. Sooner or later there will be sharp winds, frost and unpleasant moisture. I don't know how you like to warm up at home, but on the first cold day I dust off my home recipe for hot and yummy winter teas.

You can use my recipe or come up with your own proposals for fiery mixtures. Only one thing should be the same: your favourite tea must be strong and hot.

Ingredients (for 2 teas)
8 cloves
a piece of cinnamon
2 grains of cardamom
4 slices of orange
2 teaspoons of honey
your favourite tea
50ml of raspberry juice or 30ml of raspberry juice and 30ml of raspberry liqueur
