Pinca bread

I know it’s not Easter, but I really love this recipe. In Croatia families usually among all the other food, because we really like to eat, serve Pinca bread. It’s sweet and soft bread with raisins in it, or if you prefer without them. It’s usually served with cooked Easter eggs, onions, radishes, cooked ham…

Poppy seed cake

When sharing this photo on my Instagram account (chefkreso) I was surprised when some of the users asked me if poppy seeds I used to make the cake were legal. I have to say here poppy seeds are omnipresent in cooking, when preparing bread or cakes, even in our traditional cakes our grandmas used to…

Chicken vegetable stir-fry

Give me a bag of vegetables and a wok and let the magic happen. Slicing and dicing vegetables always calms me down and nothing is better than a dish filled with healthy and fresh vegetables. Unfortunately the last few days it’s been hard to find fresh vegetables at the market because the weather conditions made…

Cheesecake with chocolate glaze

A delicious pie, who doesn’t like it? There is a tasty grandma pie as I call it – a traditional apple pie with cinnamon, as I remember it I can imagine the scent of freshly baked pie passing through the rooms of the house. There is also a scrumptious pumpkin pie – not so popular…

Fried hake & Red bean salad

Since I was a kid my parents made it crucial to eat fish at least once a week. Both of my grandfathers were from the seaside so a big part of my family is too. At the seaside in Croatia people eat a lot of fish, olive oil and all the amazing Mediterranean food. I…

Vanilla cherry chocolate cake

There is nothing better than the feeling when you bake a cake and it comes out just right. All that work with the cutting, and the slicing, and the stirring and the mixing is all worth it if your guests or family members enjoy every single bite of the cake you made. For me it…

Chocolate vanilla cookies

For some time I haven’t posted any recipes and finally I’m back. The story behind this recipe is that my grandma used to make these cookies. As I’ve mentioned before, she is an inspiration for me and there are so many recipes she showed me how to make and I hope I can share as…

Budapest Tropicarium & Szentendre (Day 3)

The last day of my trip to Budapest we decided to visit Tropicarium, an aquarium located in a shopping mall just outside of Budapest. I’ve visited a year ago the Lisbon Oceanarium, which just took my breath away so the expectations were high… well even though the Tropicarium wasn’t so grand and the expectations weren’t…

Budapest – the city of lights and architecture (Day 2 – Part 2)
