Polish Cooking

Zupa Ziemniaczana

Zupa Ziemniaczana

It’s potato soup but my dad called it Zupa Kartoflana. Mine is a simple recipe that takes just 30 minutes. For the Polish experience, stir in some sour cream before serving.

Pączki - Polish Doughnuts

Polish Doughnuts – Pączki

Traditional Polish pączki are fried but with my healthy recipe they are oven-baked, then filled with jam or my favorite: homemade custard. They are smaczny!

Polish Chrusciki Angel Wings

My mother, Zosia, taught me to make these delicate Polish Christmas cookies. They simply melt in your mouth and make a stunning presentation.

I’m sharing my Polish heritage with a simple recipe for cabbage rolls stuffed with ground sirloin, rice & mushrooms – it’s one of my most treasured recipes.

Polish Pierogi

Polish Pierogi

It takes just a few ingredients to make healthy, home-style Polish pierogi with a nice potato-cheese filling. Serve boiled or lightly browned.

Polish Potato Pancakes

Polish Potato Pancakes

Potato pancakes don’t have to be greasy… or hard to make. My simple, easy recipe uses a food processor and there is a trick that I use that makes these the best ever.

Polish Hunter's Stew - Bigos

Polish Hunter’s Stew (Bigos)

This is Polish peasant food at its best. Sauerkraut, cabbage, mushrooms, beef, and pork are slow cooked for 2 hours for a hearty pot of comfort food.

Beet & Cabbage Borscht

Borscht may be better than chicken soup for recovering from a cold or dehydration. I always devour this complex and delicious soup full of health building minerals.

Best Poppy Seed Roll Recipe

Poppy Seed Roll (Polish Makowiec)

A traditional sweet Polish holiday bread filled with poppy seeds, citrus peel, and almonds. The recipe is easier than you think. Make it once and you’ll be addicted!

Potato Gnocchic

Potato Gnocchi (Polish Kluski)

There’s no place you can buy gnocchi as good as homemade. It only takes three ingredients to make the most tender dumplings, great with any sauce.
