I don’t remember my Grandma using pumpkin, it was not popular those days. It became popular only recently, my sister would cook spicy oriental version of the soup, with curry powder and chili. I decided to cook delicate Baked Pumpkin Soup, milky, buttery, with a hint of garlic.

Mushroom Barley Soup is a great seasonal food idea for Autumn. If you happen to get fresh wild mushrooms you need to try it. The add of barley makes the soup more filing and comforting in chilling weather.
In September my friend Agnieszka took me to her old Summer place at the end of small Masovian village. She did not go to this place for few years, it appeared that a lot of young trees have grown there, most of all – spruces. How surprised we were to find a lot of Slippery Jacks all over the place:)
