Welcome to Polish Housewife
If you enjoy food, especially with an international flair; if you enjoy seeing new parts of the world and learning about their cultures, traditions. . . and, of course, their food; you’ve come to the right place.
I love preparing food for family and friends, and I also like to trying new things – experimenting in the kitchen.
When searching online for recipes, more and more often, I found what I wanted on a food blog rather than on a corporate site such as Epicurious or the Food Network. I loved the generous use of color photos and the personal stories that accompanied the recipes. I felt like I got to know the blogger and that it would be fun to hang out in the kitchen with them. After following a few blogs, I decided to join in. I started writing Food is My Love Language in 2009.
Shortly after that, my husband began working in Poland. Uncertain about what Poland and that job would be like, we both spent a lot of time commuting back and forth for a year. That was exhausting and crazy. Six months later, I left family, friends, and a job that I loved behind and joined my husband full-time in Poznan, Poland. That was the beginning of my second blog, Polish Housewife – the story of our adventures in Poland and travels around Europe.
In 2014, I combined the two blogs with a more modern, flexible format. I kept the Polish Housewife name because it was shorter; it just made a better url. Here you find our culinary and cultural adventures, in Poland, the rest of Europe and at home in the United States.
