Polish Cooking

Pączki - Polish Doughnuts

Polish Doughnuts – Pączki

Traditional Polish pączki are fried but with my healthy recipe they are oven-baked, then filled with jam. Try my other recipe with homemade custard filling. Both are smaczny! 😋

Polish Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage Rolls

I’m sharing my Polish heritage with a simple recipe for cabbage rolls stuffed with ground beef and rice – it’s one of my most treasured recipes. 🇵🇱 They freeze well.

Custard Filled Pączki

Custard Filled Pączki

I love these! This is the same paczki dough as the jelly-filled “Polish Doughnuts.” The only difference is the filling. This version includes my recipe for homemade custard.

Haluski Cabbage & Noodles

Haluski Cabbage & Noodles

This is simple Polish comfort food you can make in 20 minutes. Cabbage and onions are fried and mixed with egg noodles. Try my sauerkraut version. (20 MINUTES)

Polish Chrusciki Angel Wings

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.

potato and cheese Polish pierogi

Polish Pierogi

My family recipe for Polish pierogi uses a delicious potato-cheese filling. Serve freshly boiled or lightly pan fried. (with sour cream and bacon bits – yes I said it!) 🇵🇱

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.

Zupa Ziemniaczana

Zupa Ziemniaczana / Potato Soup

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.

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 Gnocchi

Potato Gnocchi – Polish Kopytka (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.
