What aho cooks at home. From Polish comfort food to curries she remembers from travels.

155 Tomato and Ground Ivy Salsa

My sister's homegrown tomatoes, a bit of olive oil, a bit of onion, salt, pepper and the star of the show, ground ivy - and the perfect summer salad is ready!

154 Rice with Strawberries and Cream

Before strawberries disappear completely this year, here's a recipe for an old-time classic, a dish that many kids in Poland know all too well - and either love or hate.

150 Apples with Ginger, Orange and Walnuts

When maple syrup is out of reach, this apple, orange and ginger compote is ready to save your morning pancakes.

148 Best Breakfast Hummus

Changing our attitude to food can go a long way, and with a good breakfast, eaten in a good company - our days can become a little sunnier.

146 Sour Cucumber Soup

How to explain a liking for this rather acquired taste? For the 4-year-old me, zupa ogórkowa was synonymous with a treat: something I know I'll enjoy, and what is also nourishing and healthy. Or so I was told.

145 Porridge with Dark Chocolate and Pears

It's healthy, it's nutritious and it is another idea to #freeyourcupboard this spring. Healthy can be delicious!

144 Wild Mushroom and Rice Cabbage Rolls

Gołąbki, as that's how cabbage rolls are called in Poland, are perfect comfort food for early spring: the green of the cabbage invokes freshness we all so crave at this time of the year, and the earthy, steaming hot filling gives comfort, much sought after on still-chilly early spring days.

142 Sweet Cottage Cheese Dumplings (Pierogi Leniwe)

It takes less than an hour to whip up these little cushion-like dumplings. Served with a bit of melted butter, some sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon, they are a foolproof mood lifter. At least for me.

141 Silesian Potato Dumplings (Kluski Śląskie)

Kluski śląskie are one of the foods that you either love or hate, but in this case, it's down not to the flavour, but texture. A bit gummy, a bit chewy, I have always thought of them as pretty fun: they are quite bouncy for a dumpling!
