As Halloween is just around the corner it's time to bake something with pumpkin. Or squash.
We have been stocked with some new costumes, have carved some pumpkins but saved couple of ones  for later, and decided how to decorate the house this year. The boys always want new creative design,  creepier and more frightening stuff and I can hardly resist. So with this tart the Halloween baking season has already started  and the boozy, scary, dusty sweets are coming shortly. So just stay tuned if you dare! Boo!

Hello Autumn! You're my second favourite season after spring. I love all your hidden treasures You got: apple, pear, wild mushroom, quince, swiss chard, fig, and grapes. I have dozen of ideas spinning in my mind what to do with all of them. Have some fabulous recipes that I cook specially just in this season like wild mushroom risotto, baked camembert with figs, or pork loin with roasted grapes. But this time  wanted something new with apples. Even if we all love apple pie, I didn't have too much time to bake that. So opted for a quickly made, moist and lovely Apple Bundt Cake poured with salted caramel. It was an absolutely amazing choice for tea time! Go for it.

Pear and chocolate go pretty well together anytime at any occasion. This is my ultimate upside down cake recipe which works well with any summer fruits and yellow sponge. The sponge (both the yellow and chocolate) is super moist, full of flavour and can be whisked in under 20 minutes. Now that pears are in season and so inviting sitting in the wooden farmer's boxes on the market that's a good reason to turn your oven on.

The first sign of real summer is that I'm not willing to turn the cooker on. And the other day it happened as a Hot alert has been placed when the predicted temperature was above 30 degrees. Can You believe it? It's not a typical english weather  even if I'm happy with that. It's perfect time to serve cold beverages, make home made ice creams, or get ready for a nice picnic.
This Green Gazpacho recipe is a brilliant choice on any hot summer days.

I haven't been here lately.... but it doesn't mean I didn't cook. I did!
But I have been working on a new magazine for a client and dealing with my two active boys somehow seem weird. Now that the weather turns warmer they want to stay outside all the day, just like me. So have time hardly to come and share my recipes, even if I always take shots. Therefore I was happy when discovered Steller website, where I can post the photos and the recipes. It's faster to create stories in their user friendly app and to be honest I really like to surf among beautiful stories with so many amazing photos by talented photographers from all over the world. Just have a look at them! If You fancy join them please follow me :-)

And here is my Panna Cotta recipe with Amaretti Biscuits:
