Aubergine mini pizzas

So this post is totally dedicated to my 2017 summer, which I spent mostly on the island of Vir, Croatia. Almost a month, I was away from home, enjoying the sun and the most beautiful Adriatic sea, cooking all kinds of recipes – mostly with the homegrown vegetables we had at our vacation home. That…

Family barbecue & 2 year blogiversary

2 years ago today I started my blog. Well, actually I just got registered and started writing posts and recipes almost half a year later, but this is the official date. Since then I’ve posted around 200 recipes, I’ve got around 1200 amazing bloggers following my blog and most importantly I still enjoy writting every…

Weekend road trip to island of Krk, Croatia

Croatia has one of the most beautiful coasts in Europe, from beautiful islands, hidden beaches, party spots and the crystal blue sea. Island Krk is the second largest Croatian island in the Adriatic, but the most populated one. Situated in the bay of Kvarner, near Rijeka, it offers everything from historical sites to beautiful beaches…

Mixed Mexican salad

About a week and a half ago I shared a recipe for Tortilla chips crusted steak, and in my opinion the best side dish to a delicious steak like that is a fresh mixed seasonal, in this case, Mexican salad.  As I’m watching the snow fall outside my house, here in Zagreb, I couldn’t think…

Creamy pepper chicken

I’ve got some awesome news… I got a new job!! 😀 It’s temporary one for now, as I’m planning on returning to college for my Master’s degree in September, but it’s great, the people are fun and the whole work environment is wonderful. So I’ve been working for the past week, from noon till late…

Tortilla chips crusted steak

Tortilla chips are my favorite snack! I always get the most spicy ones and they’re my must-have when bingeing a TV show on Netflix on a Sunday afternoon. It just happens that Grace and Frankie are back for their 4th season on Netflix and I got everything set up to watch them later today. This…

White wine Mussels & garlic bread

It’s been so cold for days now in Zagreb and all I’m thinking about is summer and spending my time at the beach or swimming in the sea. Every time I think of summer, delicious Mediterranean recipes pop up, either it’s fish or other seafood, I love it all, especially as I’m used to preparing…

Zucchini patties (Vegetarian)

Zucchini patties are probably the easiest dish and recipe you can make. Last week my 8-year-old cousin was over at our family dinner and he prepared some himself. Not only are they easy to make, they are most delicious, especially when you add some Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese. The best way to serve them is with…

Spicy vegetable salsa & steak

I always wanted to have a big garden with lots of different vegetables I could grown any time of year. Unfortunately that’s just a dream at the moment since I live in an apartment building near the city center. There are a few friends of mine who live just outside the city, and they all…

Grilled steak topped with mushroom sauce & fries

For the last few days I’ve been helping out my dad with a big job in his firm and it’s the longest time in a while that I stayed out of a kitchen. I also didn’t have time to stop by my blog and share this recipe that I’ve been keeping as a draft for…

Spicy beef stir-fry with rice noodles

Every time I’m busy and I’ve got a fridge full of fresh vegetables, I choose stir-fry for lunch or dinner. It’s the easiest and most flavorful dish you can prepare with any combination of ingredients in practically no time. I also love spicy food, and a few months back I bought the large extra hot…
