Today I offer you a very autumnal cake with pears and lots of caramel. Some people call it tartini tart or upside down tart, but it doesn't matter what we call it, because it will still taste amazing. Thin cake, fresh and crispy pears and everything put in a golden caramel sauce. If before serving it you sprinkle the cake with a bit of lemon juice and add vanilla ice cream or a spoonful of yogurt you will get a dessert fit for a king.

160g of flour
1 tablespoon of sugar
120g of butter
a pinch of salt
75ml of very cold water
Chop the butter with the rest of the dough ingredients. Add the cold water little by little and quickly knead into a smooth dough. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and leave in the fridge for an hour.

50g of butter
150g of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of honey
4 pears
1 lemon


In general I don't make preserves for winter. Maybe that's a mistake, and I should put some summer-autumn treasures into jars, but how would I find the time? My day is too short. During our last trip to the mountains, for breakfast our housekeeper served us an amazing jam with an even more amazing white curd cheese. We had no idea what it was made from. It turned out it was made from courgette. I can say that I had made a lot of dinner dishes and desserts using courgette, but never jam. Encouraged, I made it at home. Some bread, delicious white curd cheese, and a breakfast fit for a king is ready. The jam will have the same colour as jelly, to which you should add: lemon, pineapple, gooseberry, peach... The texture depends on the temperature. After taking it out of the fridge it will be jelly. Just heat it up a bit and it will be semi-liquid again.

1.5kg of courgette
200g of sugar
1 instant lemon jelly
juice and lemon peel


I haven't made muffins for a long time, even though my children and I really like them. The best are probably with fresh fruit. They are moist inside, crunchy on the outside. It's nice to pack a small surprise for school. This is what I did with the last two cupcakes which were left over after Sunday dessert. Vanilla muffins with red currants, white chocolate and macadamia nuts were a delicious bonus to vegetables, fruit and tortilla with ham. My children's smile was the best reward.

250g of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
150g of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
250ml of milk
60ml of oil
1 egg
2 fistfuls of red currants
2 fistfuls of macadamia nuts
12 pieces of white chocolate
a pinch of salt


Many people limit the amount of meat they eat or remove it completely from their diet. More orthodox people don't eat animal products at all. My recent unexpected guests are from this group. The visit went on longer than I expected, so I had to make dinner. My husband always complains that I buy too much, but this time he really appreciated it when after 20 minutes we had a colourful, remarkable dish, and I managed to take part in the social meeting (we have an open kitchen) almost all the time. Black pappardelle were beautiful with small tomatoes and chanterelles sauce made from coconut milk. I added a lot of parsley from the balcony herbarium and... everybody was amazed. Maybe with the exception of my dog, who looked reproachfully when I cut up his beloved parsley. I have to quickly plant some more Mrugnięcie


Ingredients (for 4 people)
600g of black pappardelle
250g of chanterelles
2 shallots
3 cloves of garlic
1 chili pepper
3 twigs of thyme
400ml of coconut milk
150g of cherry tomatoes
6 tablespoons of chopped parsley
2 tablespoons of parmesan (not for vegans)
2 tablespoons of sunflower oil
salt and pepper


My son is not a poor eater. He eats everything he gets, he tries new flavours and develops his palate. We also have a deal: he has to try everything – even dishes he doesn't like, because maybe he will change his mind. Thanks to that, a lot of controversial meals are back on the menu. My son's only weakness when eating is that food disappears reeeeeeeaaaaaaally sssssslooooooowly Mrugnięcie. You probably understand that it is very annoying in the morning, when we have to go to school. For some time I have been looking for dishes that will disappear quickly from my son's plate. Lately I took advantage of my son's love for pancakes. I prepared some small pancakes, which I served with yogurt, fruit and maple syrup. Immodestly I can tell you that it was a perfect shot. The breakfast disappeared fast. For sure it will often be on our table.

150g of natural yoghurt
1 egg
120g of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of oil
maple syrup, fruit and natural yoghurt for serving
