147 Steamed Yeast Doughnuts with Cocoa Filling (Parniki)
Who doesn't like doughnuts? The problem with them, however, is that they are quite unhealthy, or heavy at least, as most deep-fried foods are. Parniki - the light-as-a-cloud steamed doughnuts that my Mum have been making since as long as I can remember - are my idea for dealing with doughnut craving.
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.
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.
131 Tomato and Pasta Soup
Chunky, fresh, and very satisfying. This tomato soup with pasta is as comforting as summer gets.

Simple summer dessert, and a perfect way of using up the abundance of summer fruit. Have yourself a crumble!
124 An Impromptu Apple Pie
Apples, raisins and almonds packed into individual pastry cases, topped with almond crumble. Delish!
123 Springtime Simnel Cake
Moist, aromatic and light, this traditional Easter cake will change the way you think about fruit cakes. With an added marzipan layer in the middle, and a layer of marzipan on top, it surely is a showstopper!
