Pork roast

Pork roast has always been my family’s go-to dinner idea when everyone was coming over, actually either pork or duck. My grandma used to roast duck and I loved it, I also shared a recipe a few months back and you can still check it out – Roasted duck. Seems like the tradition of making duck…

Pumpkin soup

I have to admit it is not a pumpkin season this time of year here in Croatia, even though you can find butternut in every supermarket or the organic farmer’s market nowadays all year round. Pumpkin is a vegetable I love using in my kitchen, and it wasn’t something you could find on my family’s…

Stuffed bell peppers

When was the last time you took a moment and looked around yourself, but really looked, with appreciation towards your surrounding, taking in all of the beauty that’s right in front of you? Did you ever feel like walking down the same street which you’ve been walking down for years, maybe ten years or more,…

Steak marinated in beer, croquettes & grilled peppers

I always wanted a boat. Each summer I would go to the seaside for more than a month, and there I would usually have friends with boats. From old wooden boats their grandparents owned to 60ft yachts some of them rented for the time they were in Croatia. I always had fun, either travelling by…

Grilled chicken, rice, sweet & sour sauce

I always loved Asian food, my sister was the one who first introduced me to it. Actually she didn’t, she order Asian food for herself and our mother, and since there were some leftovers I tried. It was the most usually ordered dish here – pork with bamboo and shiitake mushrooms. In the days to…

Hvar – the most beautiful island in the Adriatic!

Today I just found out I’m probably going to get another chance in September to go to the island of Hvar and Vis since my parents are going there for business and they invited me to go with them. If you’ve been reading my posts I’ve been sharing lots of photos from my vacation there…

Spinach, tomato & Mozzarella stuffed chicken

If only I could have this view in front of me every morning when I step out on the street. The smell of pine in a light salty breeze coming from the sea, the sky clear and blue and just a few steps to the beach. This is something I woke up to every day…

Vegetable soup (Vegetarian)

For the past three years I’ve been using Airbnb app for all my travels. I started using it on a recommendation from a friend and my first Airbnb apartment was when I went to Lisbon, Portugal three summers ago. The biggest benefit of it was that the apartments you can rent are almost 100% cheaper…

Steak, barley & green bean salad

Split, most of you probably heard of it if you ever visited Croatia because it’s the first stop for most of our tourists, being second largest city in Croatia and a¬†intraregional transport hub where you can catch a ferry to one of the islands in the Adriatic. But it’s not just a port, it’s a…

Zagreb steak

Zagreb is my city, it’s where I was born, where I live, work and go to school. Sometimes it seems like a boring city with so much potential, usually on those days when all of your friends have plans and you just wish you can pack a bag and travel somewhere far and exotic, but…

Crispy pork belly & pea risotto

Vacation! Finally the time for vacation came and here in Croatia we all love spending our summer at the seaside. I had some time off and for the last week I’ve been swimming and sunbathing all the way from Split to the islands of Hvar and Vis which are one of the most beautiful islands…

Leek stew

Every time my mom made this stew when I was a kid, I would always say “We just had it last week”¬†and the fact was that we had it more then 3 months ago. I wasn’t a stew-lover and I hated it for years to come, but then something changed and I grew to like…
