The raspberry season is finished. Occasionally, you can buy quite nice fruit. Though they aren't as cheap as in the summer, I got tempted and bought a box. Some of the fruit was eaten at once by my children – raspberries are one of their favourite types of fruit – I used the rest in some oat-banana muffins. My home again smelled of summer. What a shame that the next raspberry season will be in a year's time. Oat-banana muffins are also excellent without fruit or with a different seasonal fruit. Now you could use apples, pears or plums. Make a note of this recipe and in the future make some muffins with raspberries, strawberries or blackberries.

200g of banana
140 g of flour
40g of rolled oats
70g of brown sugar
50g of butter
50g of natural yoghurt
1 egg
1 teaspoon of baking powder


The autumn is in full swing. It is getting colder and colder, the days are shorter and the leaves are more and more colourful. Though it sounds picturesque, I am not keen on it. The autumn leads to the winter and I don't like it. The only asset of the colder days is yummy food. Now it isn't so light and fruity as in the spring and summer. Now we eat more sumptuous, fragrant dishes full of seasonings which warm us up.

Today I would like to share with you the recipe for such a dish. It is a goulash, but I prepared it a bit differently because I used mincemeat. The chili pepper, ginger, herby pepper and cumin impart a warming character to it.

500g of mincemeat
2 carrots
1 parsley root
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 chili pepper
a piece of fresh ginger
1 tin of red beans
1 tin of tomatoes
2 tablespoons of oil
1l of bouillon
1 teaspoon of sweet paprika
half a teaspoon of herby pepper
half a teaspoon of cumin
2 tablespoons of chives


In my home the beginning of the autumn smells of apples. Cakes, apple pies, tarts, desserts – I have prepared everything at least once. Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a swift dessert – apples in French pastry. They are perfect if you don't have a lot of time. Unless you are a cake master and you make the French pastry yourself. I used the finished product. I made the cookies to give my busy daughter a helping hand. Then she told me that with these cookies even "Pan Tadeusz" might be a good idea (the book "Pan Tadeusz" is a poem by Adam Mickiewicz. It is one of the most difficult set books in primary school).

Ingredients (6 cookies)
1 pack of chilled French pastry
2-3 apples
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 tablespoons of orange juice
3 tablespoons of milk
3 tablespoons of brown sugar


Sometimes in salads it's a case of the fewer ingredients the better. Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a grand, simple and colourful salad. The main ingredient is green beans. You can use ordinary green beans. Because of the fact that my husband did the shopping, I had to use 'mammoth' green beans. In fact the only difference is the width of the pods. Green beans are a rich source of folic acid and fibre. They are light and have a low glycaemic index, so they are recommended for people suffering from diabetes. Nuts are an interesting ingredient of this salad – use your favourite nuts. The second ingredients is a red onion. Pickle it in lemon juice and maple syrup. You can use the pickle as an ingredient of the sauce for the salad.

0.5 kg of green beans
100g of raspberries
100g of feta cheese
1 small red onion
4 tablespoons of lemon juice
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
2 tablespoons of olive oil
a fistful of cashew nuts
parsley and peppermint leaves
