Pear Tarte Tatin or Upside Down Pie

Days are getting shorter and nights are getting colder. It’s middle of October and middle of autumn for that matter, summer is long gone and it’s time for new recipes! Maybe that is why I woke up yesterday surprised with the cold air outside of my cozy blanket and right away I knew I wanted to make a warm fruity and comfort pie to balance out this unstoppable season change… well, and also to complement our dinner with a French dessert! So I decided to make a Pear Tarte Tatin that I tasted once in a French restaurant in Geneva :)

Good start of the day: Zucchini Fritata

Zucchini Fritata for Breakfast

Zuchinna Fritata

Until not very long time ago I belonged to that group of people, who only ate breakfast in hotels on a trip, or at work when I was working in a coffee shop and had an option of starting my day with freshly made granola and home-made yogurt. But most of the time I didn’t care to make myself breakfast in the morning at home, moreover I felt like if I eat in the morning (or until 2-3 pm for that matter), I would feel more hungry throughout the day. Oh, how wrong was I! After I started my 7-min workouts that turned into 15-20 min of daily exercises, I have completely changed my eating habits. Now I understand that eating a healthy breakfast gives you energy for the whole day, gives you strength for exercises and eliminates late-night food cravings after a light dinner.

So, here is an option for breakfast that can be cooked and eaten fresh or prepared in the evening the day before – Fritata with Zucchini.

Szarlotka, Sharlotka or favourite Apple Pie

You know that moment when your boyfriend’s parents or your parents, or friends who want to congratulate your with belated birthday, anniversary or someone else, unexpectedly calls you up on the weekend and tell you they will drop by later for a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon, and your fridge is half-empty and you have no desire to slave in the kitchen? Or if you’re feeling extremely lazy and craving some home-made dessert? Or if you have too many apples that your grandma gave you from her own garden? Well, or any other situation, when you have in your possession apples, some flour, couple of eggs and some sugar, and 10 min of your time.
