Family cooking book

I always had on my mind to create family cooking book.

We have a draw in our kitchen where I collect all good recipes hoping one day I can put them all together and create our family cooking book for my beautiful boy.

I think the easiest way to achieve it will be to use my blog to start working on it.

The book is going to be a collection of my mum's polish recipes, some great staff I have tried while traveling and from my hubby's family.

I will start with our favorite bfast recipe - my first one will be French toast with fruits.

It is actually my hubby's recipe he saw it one day on telly and start doing for me as a treat on Sundays very soon regretting it as I love it and he is sick of doing it every weekend.

It is very easy one for sweet tooth people.

All you need is:

* French brioche
* egg
* milk
* butter
* icing sugar
* fruits (best with apricots)

Slice brioche, soak in milk/egg liquid.

Fry on butter, serve with fruits and icing sugar

What my hubby does he slices apricot and put inside brioche creating little pockets filled with fruit, fries it and put in the oven for 10 minutes so apricots get soft and warm and this is the best way ever to do it.

... downside he does get grumpy as he doesn't like peeling and slicing apricots ...



  1. I love the idea of creating a family cookbook! Jordan’s mom gave me a few hand-scribbled recipes the last time we went home and we have a folder bursting with them on our kitchen window cill – just never had the time to put them all together! This French toast looks delicious… guess what I am having on Sunday!

  2. Patrzę na to zdjęcie, gdy w Polsce jest godzina 23-cia, i nie jest to pora na posiłek, ale ta przekąska jest taka apetyczna, że aż trudno się oprzeć łaknieniu :)
