Kaiserschmarren omlette

This thing is t-h-e best omlette that I've ever had. And I had many ;) It's delicate, tender and frankly... it makes me feel that we are perfect for each other ;)

It's really simple to make you feel that way too!

1 egg
1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of milk
1,5 tablespoon of castor sugar
1 small or medium apple
1 teaspoon of butter 


Peel off the apple skin, and cut it into small pieces.

Whisk the egg whites with sugar.

Mix the milk, egg yolk and flour (it's important to make sure there are no lumps of flour left). Pour it into a bowl with whisked egg whites, add apples. Mix carrefully until the dough is one colour.

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Pour the dough on it, cover it up and wait till the bottom isn't liquid.
Then flip it, wait about 3 minutes, cut it into smaller pieces, and... eat!

You can serve it with maple sirup, castor sugar or like it is originally served in Austria with plum jam.

Florence & The Machine

Florence has one of the most beauiful voices.
Their songs are like a surgery on open heart.
When I listen to her singing I have no words,
this is just perfect!

 Take rucola and wash it carefully, than you can shake it in sieve covering the bottom with a bowl or something.

Next cut up all the ingridients into about 1 cm pieces. Add it all to rucola.

Then sauce: pour olive oil to an empty glass, then throw couple of basil leaves and pressed garlic and of course salt and pepper- not much, just a pinch of each.

Mix it well, then pour into a bowl with all other ingridients, and mix all together.

Last night we watched "Gasland" frightening documentary about natural gas.
 pic from

This movie shows how little a minority means to the world. In this case minority of people affected by hydraulic drilling. It's really disturbing also because Poland may be the next GasLand. I don't want to wake up one day and smell gas from my water and find it flammable.

If you didn't watch it-do.

smth like Pischinger Wafer Cakes

Today is a very special day for me cause for the first time since I moved in to my boyfriends apartament and his parents visited. So you'll understand when I'll tell you I was a little stressed :)

I figured the way to a man's heart is through his stomach so I decided to do something sweet. I mean I know his parents and I like them, but I had to show his mum that I'm taking care of him :) Normally I would bake something but since I don't have an oven it is really hard to do ;).

But there's plenty of dessert that don't require baking one of them is Pischinger Wafer Cake :) It's really easy to make and looks quite nice!

You'll need:

150 g shelled walnuts

150 g dark chocolate (I've used with 70% cocoa)
125 ml cream 30%
175 g of sugar
25 g of butter
1 box of wafers 

***given values ​​are approximations, taste it and then you can increase the amount of chocolate, or sugar to make it how you like it the most etc.

Step by step (oh baby!:) :

1. Start with walnuts. You have to grind them. Grinding is tricky - you can go two different ways : you can grind walnuts thoroughly so you'll get a smooth paste. You can also grind them less thoroughly, leaving some larger pieces, which then will make the wafers more crunchy. But the mass will be harder to spread. I left larger pieces... And I don't regret it! :)

2. Next heat up the cream.

3. When the cream starts boiling, reduce the heat, add butter, sugar and chocolate.

4. Mix it till it's smooth and all ingridients are combined.

5. Pur half a glass of it- it will be the glaze.

6. Then add 120 g of walnuts (rest will be used to sprinkle the sides) and mix everything up.

7. Leave it to cool.

8. Take the wafers and spread the mass over them evenly. Remember about the edges! So proceed with five layers. 

As soon as they are ready, cover the cake with aluminum foil or some baking paper, and then put something heavy and flat on it (I used an atlas, and on top of it I put a pot of water for example :)) Wait 2-3 hours for the cake to merge .

Then you have two options again :) You can leave it in the size you have or divide it up to smaller pieces - that's what I did.
Next we take the pieces, brush it with chocolate glaze, and sprinkle the edges with walnuts. Unfortunately you'll have to wait a little longer - put the pieces into the fridge for about an hour. In that time the glaze should harden.
Then.. you'll just have to eat it!
