I’m a great, unconditional fan of porridge. Some may hate it, but I certainly love it. It’s my staple breakfast which I eat on average 5 times a week – usually in the 5-minute, no-cook office breakfast version. It does its job and tastes great, but I’m always more than happy to use a chance to cook my porridge. Being in the festive season, I decided to create a Christmas version of my favourite breakfast. Here’s a recipe for my perfect festive, warming, aromatic, gingerbread porridge!
You probably know it already, but I’ll say it just in case: Christmas is just around the corner. Some of us have already finished their Christmas gift shopping. Others, perhaps, still haven’t even started. Whichever group you belong to, you might want to add some original, simple DIY gifts to your list. The idea I’m bringing you today will be perfect to use as a gift for someone who loves to bake. It’s very flexible too, so you can easily adjust it to further personalise this little present. The thing I’m talking about is a DIY cookie mix in a jar.
Hey everyone! Christmas season is almost there – and that means we’re in the heat of trying to find the perfect gifts for our nearest and dearest. Last year, I compiled a huge list of ideas for Christmas gifts for him, her, parents, grandparents, a list of stocking fillers and more! Here’s a shortcut to all parts of the guide – I hope you find them useful! 🙂
Today – the 2nd of February – marks the official end of Christmas in my country’s culture, tightly connected to religious aspect of Christmas (you can read more about our traditions here). This day makes a perfect occasion for my big Christmas-released project to be released for the first time. I’ve gathered all of my Christmas recipes, craft and gift ideas and inspirations that have already been published on this blog, added those that are still yet to be published (that’s right, I didn’t manage to post all of my Christmas adventures in December and had to schedule some for 2019) and arranged them all into a festive book. It took a lot of work, but it’s finally ready and available to download right now, for free, for everyone!
Christmas may be over, but winter certainly is not! In fact, it looks like it’s only just begun in my country – the temperature dropped from around 10°C at Christmas to -5°C last night. So although Christmas is now far in the past, the season for mulling whatever’s in our eyesight is still going strong. So I got that idea – what if I tried to mull some tea? I quickly jumped into action, and here’s the result!
Merry Christmas to all of my followers! No regular content today or tomorrow, I’ll be back on Thursday. Enjoy your Christmas cookies and cakes! Continue reading Merry Christmas!
Ho, ho, ho, ho! Santa Claus is coming to town! Or… is he? Apparently, not everywhere.
I suppose all countries have their own versions of popular holidays, making them unique and different from other places. In terms of Christmas, Poland has a lot of traditions, most of which you most likely won’t find anywhere else. Here’s a list of fun facts for you! A quick little read for this busy weekend, presumably full of hectic preparations.
I think I can now officially close the season of Christmas cookie decor. I still need to bake two cakes (I’ll do that a day before Christmas though, they have to be fresh!), but when it comes to cookies – which can be baked and decorated in advance – they’re all done and dusted. I thought I’d share a recap of all my Christmas cookies from this year. Well, maybe not all – I made hundreds of gingerbread cookies – but I have photos of all types of toppings I used. This will be lovely to return to in a few months, to reminisce Christmas time.
Staying in the Christmas spirit – it’s time for a simple recipe for those who don’t have much time but want to get in the festive spirit through festive food.
A simple gingerbread mug cake! Ready in under 5 minutes.
Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas, everyone! I believe we can all agree that Christmas season is very much here, officially. And although there’s nothing wrong in eating all of the delicious festive food every once in a while, I know for a fact that those trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle on a daily basis might find it difficult to keep the right balance around holidays. Here are a few ways to minimize the bad effects of a Christmas feast. Which, by the way, isn’t as bad as you might assume! I’ve recently posted about 5 real health benefits of Christmas food – make sure to check it out in case you’ve missed it!
