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

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!

139 Uszka, tiny dumplings that are love.

As long as there are people who care enough to commit a good few hours of their time to prepare foods that, apart from sustenance, are there to bring smiles on the faces of their loved ones, the life is worth living.

Not a fan of sweet lunches? These pierogi with wild bilberries might be able to change it!
