Moment of truth… I have to confess something… I’m a chocoholic, yes. My name is Magda and I’m a chocoholic. My story starts a loooong time ago… when I got my first milk chocolate bar, who is the culprit for starting me on chocolate? …

Since I met Cookies, he is making my lunch for work (which I appreciate very much). Without him doing it, I would have to get up another 10-15 min earlier… which means around 4:30am 0_o. Yes I willingly moved my working hours to 6:30-2:30pm. Yes, I’m crazy 😉 but I’m home faster, no traffic and no rush hour crowd, which I believe is worth getting up couple minutes earlier… You don’t want to be in the Radom train in the morning, day or evening… So, back to Cookies and my lunch… sometimes I try to make it easier for him and prepare myself some salad the day before that lasts usually 2 days. One of my favorites is Crab Stick Salad that I ate at my colleague Anna’s party. I don’t think it can be easier than that 😉 hehehe and it makes quite a nice amount of healthy carbs, protein and some greens too. It’s only 4 ingredients, if you cook the rice nicely salted you don’t even need salt or pepper to spice the salad.
I thought it wouldn’t be possible… This is POST #20! It’s no wonder nor a mystery that we like pizza. We ordered humongous 4 seasons pizza from Biesiadlowo and enjoyed every piece ;-). Since I don’t have oven at the moment I thought cooking a …
Blueberry Cobbler by Melissa
Since I presented this idea of sharing recipes to my friends, I’m getting plenty of response’s 😉 Today I present recipe for a Deep South dessert with blueberries prepared and written by Melissa who lives in Redwood, Mississippi.
As friends from all over the world (0_o I hope, ok?) look at my blog, I let myself recount ingredients and degrees to metric system.
Well, I started off trying to think of a dessert that would be simple, not take too much time in the kitchen, and be about as idiot proof as it comes. That led me to one of my favorites, Blueberry Cobbler. Now, I know what you are thinking, “Wait a minute, don’t you have to make pie crust and roll out all that dough for a cobbler?” In this recipe, I am pleased to say, “No!”
You will need the following ingredients:
3 medium (or larger) eggs
3 cups ( 550g) of Blueberries
2 cups (220g) of sugar
1 stick (110g) of butter or oleo
4 or 5 slices of day old bread (white)
Preheat oven to 350 (175C) degrees. I use a Pyrex 11” x 7” glass baking dish for this recipe. Coat the inside of the dish with a non-stick cooking spray. Place berries in your dish. Pinch bread into small pieces and arrange over the berries. Make sure all of the berries are covered by the bread. Melt butter then add the sugar and eggs. Stir thoroughly until mixed well. Pour the mixture over the bread covered berries. Be sure that all bread is coated with the butter mixture. Put in the oven for 45 minutes. After removing the cobbler from the oven, let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
I have also made this cobbler using fresh strawberries and peaches. I hope you enjoy a little taste of the Deep South!
Until next time, take care of yourself and each other 0_o
Nibbly little thing for lunch
Lately I was asked if I only cook dinner meals, since I constantly think what to eat for any of my meals. I’m posting something for lunch, that I got the idea for by standing in the store in front of a cooler full of different kind of cheeses…. It‘s a small and tasty salad with blue cheese – Cookies doesn’t even want to try it 0_o, he says: “I ain’t eatin’ that moldy shit, Woman!” (I love it when he tries to use a southern accent 0_o). He just simply doesn’t know what he is missing… Blue cheese mostly is delicate in flavour and adds some nice bite to the delicate lettuces and mix of tomatoes. Yesterday I was able to buy a nice mix of cherry, strawberry and heart tomatoes that are different shapes and colors, and these are what made the salad look just pretty ;-). With an ingredient like blue cheese, the salad doesn’t need fancy dressing – so I made just a classic vinaigrette.
As usual, “if you ain’t eatin’ that moldy shit” 😉 you can just add cubes of cheddar or any other sharp flavour cheese or even chorizo or salami.
Ingredients for 1 😉
50g (almost 2 oz) blue cheese
2 handfuls mix of lettuce
½ red onion
handful mixed tomatoes
handful seedless grapes
3 tbsp oil
2 tsp apple (or white wine) vinegar
1 tbsp dijon mustard (any yellow will do)
pinch of fructose (or sugar)
salt and pepper to taste
Arrange lettuce on the plate, cut cheese into small cubes, tomatoes, grapes cut in half and onion into feather like pieces and then layer all of the ingredients up on the lettuce. Easy, huh?
Add the ingredients for the dressing to a jar and shake thoroughly until it starts to emulsify. Pour dressing on top of the salad and serve after 5 minutes rest. If you like, pour yourself nice glass of favourite wine and enjoy a few minutes of pleasure 😉
Until next time, take care of yourself and each other.
P.S. Madzia – no parsley this time 0_o but I’m still going to use your comment 😉
