Steak tartare is a dish which you can prepare with raw ingredients. Because I don't have a trusted place to buy fresh fish, I prepare steak tartare with smoked salmon. Old pros say that it isn't the same, and they are right, but I assure you that my steak tartare is really very tasty. It is refreshing, a bit spicy and regardless of how much I prepare, there is never enough.

A few months ago I prepared steak tartare with salmon, pickles and horseradish. Now I would like to share with you a different and lighter version with fresh cucumber, chili pepper and sesame seeds.

300g of smoked salmon
spring onion with the green part
half a fresh cucumber
chili pepper
the peel and juice from half a lime
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
salt and pepper
almond flakes and sesame seeds


The new school year is a fact. The children take on tests and homework and the parents solve the problem of packed lunch. The immortal sandwich and apple combination may get boring. From time to time we have to prepare something else. I think vegetables or tortillas with the kids' favourite stuffing are one great idea.

Today I propose millet groats pancakes with apples, which are an excellent idea for hot afternoon tea but are also yummy cold. I'm sure that they will be a yummy packed lunch for pancake lovers. Pack also some fresh fruit and your children will be delighted. Maybe you will have to prepare another portion for the next day for your children's school friends.

100g of millet groats
2 apples
1 egg
1 banana
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
4 tablespoons of flour


The courgette is my favourite vegetable. I always have it in my fridge. I use it for dishes with groats, and I make soups, salads, pancakes, cutlets and even muffins. Today I chose pâté. Recently we have been eating vegetable pâtés rather than meat ones. The courgette pâté is mild, easy to cut, and it is equally yummy just after baking as it is on the next day, provided there is some left to eat.

Ingredients (25cm cake tin)
700-750g of courgette
2 carrots
1 big onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of butter
2 eggs
100g of breadcrumbs
4-5 tablespoons of chopped parsley
salt and pepper


Alcoholic drinks definitely taste better with friends. We like beer during barbecues with the family, and we drink wine with our friends on holiday. After all, holidays are not only for children. After a day full of sightseeing and sunbathing, we usually drink local wine or we prepare holiday drinks.

In Italy we prepared drinks with our beloved Aperol. It could be classical Aperol Spritz, but you can also add it to other fruit drinks. Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a light holiday drink. I made it up as I went along, so I will just give you the ingredients without ratios. Add as many ingredients as you need for it to be as strong and sweet as you like. I usually add very cold watermelon to this drink. I don't like ice cubes because they thin the drink. You can add frozen pieces of orange or frozen grapes to cool down your drink.

watermelon (without the skin and stones)
lemon juice
orange juice
sparkling water (or other drink with gas)


Mexican chili con carne isn't a light and dietetic dish. But after groats, salads and porridge my family demands something unhealthy. In order to stave off a rebellion against healthy food, I sometimes give in and serve something like hot dogs, hamburgers or pizza. Today I chose chili con carne, but in my version I added thin, sliced sausages instead of minced meat. Baked circles of tortilla are an excellent ingredient of this yummy dinner. All appetites were satisfied, so tomorrow we will go back to rolled oats and kale crisps Mrugnięcie.

1 tin of tomatoes
1 small chili pepper
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion
1 tablespoon of butter
2 sprigs of rosemary
400g of thin sausages
1 tin of red beans
1 tin of sweetcorn
salt and pepper
grated cheese
