134 Dreamy Rainbow Cookies

Kids-friendly, naturally dyed Dreamy Rainbow Cookies. As if baking wasn't fun enough!

Potato stamps to the rescue.

Potato stamping was by far my favourite activity in preschool, I always loved the ingenuity of the idea - how something pretty can be brought to existence from almost nothing.

133 Polish Poppy Seed Cake

I present you all strucla makowa, probably the most beloved (if not always realised) cake in Poland, which - if made well - will steal your heart immediately. 

132 Stained Glass Cookies

Edible Christmas ornaments that stole my heart. Who doesn't love stained glass?

When you wake up and the world is too beautiful to stay in bed, go for a walk!

On olives and Istria.

I like to think of Istria as an olive country: from whatever point you choose to look, you will probably see an olive grove, or an olive tree at least. And the olive oil there is, well, awesome.

A permission to be unruly.

Not many books can keep you up all night. This one will. Anthony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential. Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly". Enjoy the ride.

131 Tomato and Pasta Soup

Chunky, fresh, and very satisfying. This tomato soup with pasta is as comforting as summer gets.

Sunflower’s Wonders

Who doesn't love sunflower? It looks like sun, tastes like summer, and it has a pretty incredible history, too.
