Today in my kitchen I am “going back in time” and cooking one of my favourite dishes the way it was cooked in the 1920s. This year leading cooking appliance brand Stoves UK is celebrating 100 years. I was wondering what people cooked back then. Today we usually cook something simple and comforting using all kitchen appliances we have – starting with a good cooker, so making dinner for my family doesn’t take more than 30 minutes usually. I was looking through the 1920s recipe book and found that most of the recipes that we cook today are similar, but the way of cooking was usually longer, people used less ingredients, etc. Sooo today I am cooking Potatoes au Gratin with Cream the way it was cooked a hundred years ago!

Hi guys! As you know my blog was nominated as a finalist for Cucina Blog Award 2018 and I can’t tell how happy and exited I am! First of all I want to say my big “thank you!” to all of you for your votes, kind messages and support! You are truly amazing! Just a few days left before the ceremony and I can’t wait to meet all the beautiful people at the event in Milan. Meanwhile as a thank you, I want to share this beautiful Rhubarb Upside-Down cake recipe. I hope you like it! A friend of mine recently went to a baking class that she found on a website like FBOI and I told her to try this recipe out. It’s safe to say that she absolutely loved it and it’s sent her on a baking frenzy! Even if you’re a beginner baker, this cake is super easy to make.
There is nothing better on a cold winter day than a hot wholesome soup. I love cooking soups especially during colder months. Mushroom soup, cauliflower cream soup and borsch (beet soup) are my favourite. I wanted to share this recipe of Roasted cauliflower and chickpea soup because we need to survive until the spring, right? And what is the best way to do it? Right, cooking and eating comforting food. I made this soup with a kale pesto and I think it’s pretty cool to combine two kinds of plants of the cabbage family (cauliflower and kale) in one meal. I hope you will like it too!
When Anya (golubkakitchen.com) sent me a message that she would like to send me a copy of her new published cookbook “Simply Vibrant” I was very exited because I loved her blog for a many years since I only started my food journey. Anya makes beautiful and in the same time simple food which is mostly vegan and plant based. I love her clever ideas about the cooking process and ingredients combinations! Although I am not a vegan I like cooking vegan friendly food and finding unusual substitutions for basic ingredients. So there are a lot of reasons why I have put “Simply Vibrant” cookbook on my kitchen bookshelf.
These crepes are not only very attractive but also are so simple to make that I actually made them using just one hand and holding my baby in another one. These crepes make an excellent quick lunch or breakfast. They’re also one of my favourite options for the kids’ lunches.
I love spinach because it is an excellent source of vitamin K, zinc, folic acid, magnesium, iron, calcium and vitamin C. Should I tell more?
