Today's recipe is for one of the quickest and most delicious soups I have eaten. This light coconut, spicy soup with vegetables and shrimps was served with wheat Chinese noodles, but it would be great with rice too. For connoisseurs of Asian flavours there should be fresh coriander as a bonus. For those who don't like it, I suggest sprinkling the soup with parsley or chives. It will taste a bit different, but still perfect.

300g of shrimps without shells
1 stem of lemon grass
a piece of ginger
1 shallot
2 cloves of garlic
1 chili pepper
1l of vegetable bouillon
1 teaspoon of butter
400ml of coconut milk
250g of fresh snap peas or green beans
coriander or parsley


I try to use my head when I go shopping. This is not only due to the prices; I just don't like throwing food away. However, sometimes I find products which I can't use in a simple way. Recently I found some beautifully packed slices of lemon with rum. The product isn't so unusual, but I couldn't find a way to use them. How many teas with lemon in rum can you drink? Especially if you don't like tea with lemon Mrugnięcie

I decided to use them in a cake. It was a great decision. Banana-chocolate cake with rum and lemon slices was really delicious. So how do you deal with unusual products?

Ingredients (bread pan)
3 ripe bananas
180g of flour
2 eggs
150g of brown sugar
30g melted butter
juice from half a lemon
50ml of rum
a fistful of chopped almonds
100g of chocolate drops
2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa
1.5 teaspoons of baking powder
0.5 teaspoon of baking soda
a pinch of salt
a couple of lemon slices in rum


Today I have an offer for those who don't like Valentine's Day. Poppy seed cake with piecrust hearts can be a sweet ending for a romantic dinner with candles or a simple afternoon tea without any special occasion. We don't have to have an occasion to eat something delicious and sweet at the same time, right? I think so, so I eat poppy seed cake every time I bake it, even if it is a normal weekday. This year, we will enjoy hearty poppy seed cake on Valentine's Day, but I think I will bake it again someday.

250 g of flour
125 g of cold butter
1 egg
4 tablespoons of caster sugar
poppy seed layer
400g of grated poppy seeds
100 g of butter
3 big tablespoons of flour
5 eggs
250g of sugar
1 teaspoon of almond aroma
dried fruit and nuts


Fat Thursday is the last Thursday before Lent. It begins in the last week of carnival when you can eat as much as you want without any consequences. I don't know what these consequences are exactly, but the calorific value of these sweet things is so big that we limit our sweet madness only to Fat Thursday and we eat less during the remaining weekdays. In Poland we eat a lot of Berliner doughnuts and angel wings, and most bakeries serve only these baked goods on this day. For a few years on our Fat Thursday menu we have had doughnuts and from this year – churros. So as you can see there are many ways to stuff our faces with sweet and fatty things.

250g of flour
25g of butter
125 ml of beer
4 egg yolks
a pinch of salt
caster sugar
oil for frying


Today I would like to share with you a recipe for a light and incredibly delicious dinner. The mixture of fish and my beloved risotto was a perfect bullseye, and it opened up new possibilities in creating more delicious combinations. Because the hardest thing is to have an idea. My idea today comes from Termomix's culinary book, but you don't need it (although I highly recommend it), because the recipe is easy and you can prepare it in traditional pots and pans. I recommend it.

4 fillets of cod
lemon pepper
2 tablespoons of parmesan
50g of rocket
50g of parmesan
2 cloves of garlic
50g of sunflower seeds
100ml of olive oil
a pinch of salt
