When I was growing up, in the summer, cucumber salad used to be on the menu in our house almost daily. We ate it as an accompaniment to fried chicken or a roast, but I liked it the most with a simple Hungarian potato dish made with sweet paprika spice.
In Pozba, our small village in the South-West region of Slovakia, summer for me mostly means relaxing, but there is also working around our house and garden, visiting family and friends, and eating lots of delicious local foods.

Warm weather and ice cold lemonade – a winning combination. The preparation of this favorite soft drink is very simple. Dissolve some sugar in water, add lemon juice, and you are done. There are other ways to make it while using a healthier sweetener.

When you quickly want to prepare a simple dessert which is delicious and not very sweet, this could be it. The recipe is from Frame-by-Frame Quick & Easy, a visual step-by-step cookbook from the British series Love Food. The orange could be replaced with any kind of citrus fruit. In my opinion, the cream is best when served warm.
This cake uses a special, soft and moist, very dark brown sugar with a distinctive flavor, called muscovado sugar. You can substitute it with regular brown sugar, but you will lose the almost caramel-like molasses taste. The cake would still be wonderfully delicious.
