The grapefruit is an amazing vitamin bomb. It is a rich source of ascorbic acid and beta-carotene which strengthens the immune system. Red fruit have the most ascorbic acid. They are also the most bitter and so they are more rarely chosen than other strains. Grapefruit are an important element of a slimming diet - they are dietetic and speed up the metabolic rate. Additionally, they are low in cholesterol and regulate blood pressure.

We have to remember that grapefruit juice can interfere with the absorption of drugs. If you want to add this fruit to your diet, ask your doctor for advice. If there aren't any medical contraindications, you can eat this yummy fruit. Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a snack, a starter for a rich breakfast or simply a dessert. Caramelized grapefruit with maple syrup and cinnamon will steal your hearts.

1 grapefruit
2 teaspoons of brown sugar
half a teaspoon of cinnamon
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
3 tablespoons of almond flakes


We start to celebrate Shrovetide from Fat Thursday. Tuesday - known in Poland as "herring day" - is the last day of Shrovetide and carnival. It is a day on which we can have a royal time before Lent. In Poland the name of this day comes from one of the Lent dishes – herrings.

Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a dish with herrings – it is a recipe for anyone who likes herrings as much as we do. You can prepare mini shortbread bowls for "herring day" or any other day. You could also use the idea for the stuffing as a salad. Use as many ingredients as you need for your meal.

version 1
French mustard
herrings in oil
Dice the apple and fennel. Mix them with the chopped chives. Spice it up with the French mustard and honey. Stir. Cut the herrings into small pieces. Put the salad on the bottom of some shortbread bowls. Put the herring pieces on top.


Borscht is one of our favourite soups. My children like it with small dumplings the most. This version can compete only with borscht with pasties. Sometimes I prepare small, yeasty pasties with sauerkraut which my children call "kapuśniaczki". They are time-consuming because the yeasty dough has its own requirements.

Today I would like to share with you the recipe for quick pasties with French pastry with sauerkraut. They were excellent. I also recommend preparing them with lentils, which also go very well with borscht.

Ingredients (20 pasties)
1 pack of chilled French pastry
2 tablespoons of milk
2 tablespoons of sesame seeds or nigella
0.5kg of sauerkraut
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
200g of smoked bacon
1 teaspoon of caraway seeds
2 tablespoons of butter
salt and pepper


Everybody who every day wakes up early oversleeps at least once. I don't like such mornings. I know how much time I need to get my children and me ready and deviations from the routine cause a nervous atmosphere. Recently my daughter overslept. She ran to and fro nervously between the bedroom and bathroom, and didn't go into the kitchen once. It is obvious that if a teenager has to choose between washing and eating, she chooses the first one.

My housemates don't go out without breakfast, so this time I decided to help my raging daughter and prepared breakfast for her. It had to be a fast dish which she could grab and without wasting a second go to school. She only called out, "Thanks mum!", gave me a farewell peck on the cheek. There wasn't time for more.

It is ridiculous to talk about the recipe for this dish. The breakfast consists of a croissant (it may be a roll), a lettuce leaf, a slice of ham, scrambled eggs and chives. Everybody, even those who don't like the kitchen, has their own recipe for scrambled eggs. For this breakfast prepare scrambled eggs the way you like them or according to the amount of time you have.

2 eggs
1 teaspoon of butter
leaf of lettuce
a slice of ham
1 tablespoon of chopped chives
salt and pepper


Breakfast should be the most important meal of the day. During the week it is difficult. People who wake up at the last minute and quickly drink a cup of coffee know it best. During the weekend when we have a bit more time, we more often celebrate our breakfast. We enjoy each other's company, cooking together and eating slowly. We like languorous mornings.

Today I would like to share with you the recipe for breakfast omelette with green peas and smoked salmon. My daughter likes this combination the most. You could leave out the smoked salmon or you could have smoked ham instead.

Ingredients (for one big omelette)
3 eggs
3 tablespoons of milk
2 tablespoons of Parmesan
4 tablespoons cooked green peas
1 tablespoon of butter
100g of smoked salmon
cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons of capers
2 tablespoons of chopped chives
