Roasted beef, potatoes & peppers

When I think of  a weekend dinner we used to have as a family at my grandmother’s house, this is it. My mother used to take me and my younger brother there each weekend our whole childhood. I remember playing chess with my grandfather, him teasing me I should start my dinner with Rakija –…

Roasted BBQ ribs, fries & coleslaw

With summer just around the corner, there are those recipes you just enjoy eating in the sun on a terrace in front of your house. One of those dishes for me are the roasted barbacue pork ribs with a side of fries and fresh coleslaw. Just so happens that friends of mine came from Canada…

Vegetable noodle soup

The best hangover cure for me is my mum’s Vegetable noodle soup. Just last week I went out on a Saturday night with some friends and after partying I couldn’t wait to enjoy some hot vegetable noodle soup my mum made for lunch the next day. There’s just something about having a spoonful of soup…

Creamy broccoli, green pea & chicken pasta

It’s another sunny and relaxing Sunday here in Zagreb, Croatia and you can just feel the summer that’s just around the corner. And while dreaming of the seaside, planning the perfect time to go on vacation, I decided to share this yummy recipe. I’m absolutely certain you’ll love it since it has just the right…

Dijon mustard grilled steaks & pasta with garlic mashed potatoes

When it comes to a great steak, it’s all about the perfect seasoning. For the last couple of months every time I’ve made pork steaks, I used dijon mustard combined with other seasonings as a basis for a spicy marinade. Turns out it’s an amazing idea, everyone loved it so far as it brings out…

Yogurt & peach pie

Spring is here and I’ve got the perfect recipe to enjoy the sunny weather and the bright colours revealing themselves all around us with every passing day. The best part of my week so far is the free weekend I got, off from work, so I could spend some time in the sun. Maksimir –…

Vegetable chicken curry

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter surrounded by their loved ones. This was the first time I worked on Easter, and had a free Easter Monday when all of my family came over. We made tons of food, so many different dishes and desserts, and had the best time. Mostly I had to play with…

Roasted ribs & vegetable rice

There ain’t nothing like roasted ribs on a hot weekend with friends. Must admit I love preparing them during summer vacation at the seaside, when all of my friends come over and we enjoy them with a couple of cold beers on the terrace in front of the house. Afterwards we go to the beach…

Fajitas & roasted potatoes

New job, new languages, new skills, new friends and good times that come with them – that’s just what March was and still is for me. Seems like this year is off on a good start and it’s getting better with every day. My favourite part is hosting dinner parties and hanging out with my…

Summer stir-fry

It’s funny how I always think of summer when the weather is bad outside or the temperatures are so low that they’re keeping me from going outside. As it turns out, Zagreb is covered in snow at the moment and temperatures are below 0. The only time I left my apartment this week was when…

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…
