Polish Mama Cooks


Hi, welcome to my blog! 

I'm Monika, mom of two amazing children, physical therapist, ski instructor and also a self tough home chef and blogger.

I was born and lived in Poland for 25 years before I moved with my 6 month old son to the US. My childhood I spent living in Kraków and in mountains. Since I remember I have been traveling and spending my time with my family learning different cultures through food and cooking. 

​This blog is a place for me to share how I cook, travel and live as a Polish mom, in my completely new American life. Moving to another country and learning a new culture is always difficult, and starting life from scratch and getting comfortable with it might be overwhelming.

My hope is that my blog can provide you with some inspiration in kitchen to explore fusion between Polish and American cuisine, show you activities to do with your kids to explore their Polish heritage, and show you family destinations ideas that will nurture  Polish and American culture.

Cooking, traveling and exploring your neighborhood are the easiest, most delicious and fun ways to learn. That is why I want to share with you recipes, places to travel with kids and similarities and differences in Polish and American culture.
