Malabi is an Israeli dessert that looks like our budino. It is sweet, creamy and prepared with rose water or orange flower water. I don't like rose water because of its taste and above all its smell, so I prepared my version of malabi with orange flower water.

In the East this dessert is served with walnuts. I make a mousse with mango for it and decorate it with fruit. I must say that this version is really yummy and very glamorous. If you like the smell of rose water, make the original dessert with it and with walnuts. Maybe only to form your own opinion of it.


Ingredients (for 4 people)
400ml of rice-coconut milk
200ml of 30% sweet cream
2 tablespoons of caster sugar
50g of rice flour
1 teaspoon of orange flower water
1 mango
1 teaspoon of gelatine
fruit for decoration


The appearance of a dish is just as important as its flavour and fragrance. A contrasting mixture of beautiful colours, interestingly arranged ingredients and an aroma wafting over the plate further stimulate the appetite. Every housewife and mum knows that the arrangement of ingredients on the plate can tempt a fussy little eater to eat the first bite and then maybe he won't notice that he has eaten everything. It is for this reason that we arrange bits of fruit like they're flowers, pretend vegetables are train wagons and draw smiling faces with ketchup on sandwiches.

And we adults also more willingly reach for a beautifully served dish than for a formless and drab meal. Of course, we don't have enough time every day to prepare a masterwork on the plate, but tomato with basil leaves, scrambled eggs with chives or cottage cheese and radishes always look more inviting than without these additions.

Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a dish which tastes great and looks equally beautiful. A yellow omelette with juicy green spinach and fiery beetroots is irresistible. I like such combinations. And you?

3 eggs
A fistful of spinach
100ml of milk
1 tablespoon of butter
salt and pepper


Sometimes everybody has an off day. Adults can find a way out of this situation, but when young people get back home chopfallen, it's Mum who has to help. On not too difficult days yummy dishes usually cheer my son up. In this situation I prepare creps, pancakes or doughnuts. With every pancake his face grows happier and happier, and the world turns out not to be as gloomy as he thought. Finally, after a calm talk he can again face reality.

Today I would like to share with you the recipe for pancakes which lift the mood. Served with thick chocolate sauce and juicy pomegranate, they are excellent even if you are in high spirits. Things could always be a little better.

220ml of vegetable milk
200g of flour
1 teaspoon of caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons of melted butter
1 teaspoon of orange essence
1 teaspoon of orange peel
chocolate icing, maple syrup or vanilla cream cheese


Sometimes, there are dishes which every housewife prepares. Maybe this is something to do with fashion or a special occasion during the year – before Christmas everybody prepares dishes with herrings or makes dumplings; before Easter we bake Easter Cakes or meals with meat; and before Fat Thursday we fry doughnuts or angel wings. Before the summer holidays everybody is trying to lose their winter tyre of fat and on the Internet there are porridges, healthy desserts with chia seeds and salads. Sometimes I also succumb to this fashion.

For some time in many ways the Tunisian shakshouka has tempted me. The literal translation of the name of this dish means "big mess", and really it is one of those meals which tastes better than it looks. In the original recipe shakshouka consists of tomatoes, onion, pepper and eggs. I also added to my shakshouka some garlic, chili pepper and courgette. In the summer season I recommend using fresh tomatoes; right now tinned tomatoes are a good choice. This dish isn't photogenic but it doesn't need to be. It delights with its lightness and flavour, and that's enough for me.

Ingredients (for two people)
1 tin of tomatoes
1 red pepper
half a courgette
half a chili pepper
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion
1 teaspoon of sweet paprika
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon of butter
2 eggs
a fistful of minced parsley
a fistful of minced chives


When I was a child, one of my favourite dinners was potatoes or buckwheat with fried egg, dill and cold kefir. I still love buckwheat groats. Now I willingly reach for vegetable milk. I choose goat yoghurt and cottage cheese instead of dairy products.

Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a dish which stole my taste buds and heart. The combination of ingredients seems surprising, but the dish looks unusual and tastes extraordinary. In any case try it for yourselves. If you don't like goat cheese, use whatever you like best instead.

The recipe comes from

Ingredients (for 2 people)
1 glass of raw buckwheat groats
a pinch of salt
half a medium courgette
1 small pomegranate
a couple of blueberries
4 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds
150g of goat cottage cheese or thick yoghurt
3 tablespoons of linseed oil
