Gratin dauphinois... by Raymond Blanc...

I've already made this dish once, but from a different recipe. This time it was my Hubby who made it and even though that it should be the same dish it was actually completely different one - as he used different recipe from a Raymond Blanc's book. It was very creamy and soft but even though it had great deal of cream and cheese it wasn't heavy at all!

Beetroot Salad with Cottage Cheese...

The recipe comes from the new Jamie Olivier's book '30 minute meals'. The whole TV series is fantastic. Thanks to Jamie we no longer cook/boil our potatoes in water but instead we're using microwave to do that - easier and simpler for only the 2 of us (which usually comes to about 4-6 potatoes). I just love beetroots so I had to give this salad a try. It's very fresh and light, perfect accompaniment to a meaty dinner.

Eggs with chanterelle mushrooms...

Got back from my holidays in Poland. Can't really say it was a proper holiday (came back more tired than before going...) - running after 14 months old Baby J, visiting family, friends, some necessary shopping and of course visit in a clinic to make sure that Baby #2 is OK. Baby #2 is in fact better than OK :) growing and healthy and I also know... it's a girl to! My Hubby is doomed :P he'll have to start sitting on the toilet... :P

Anyway back to the merit. So I had one of my all time favourite breakfasts in Poland. As I can't get those mushrooms here it was something I was craving for a looong time. It couldn't be more simply but it's so good and it reminds my about all those great summer holidays spent in the county at my Nan's.
All you need is some eggs and chanterelle mushrooms - I took advantage of my mother-in-law organic eggs from her own hens and freshly picked mushrooms :) YUM!
