15 reasons why visit Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, one of my favourite place to be, to live and to travel to. From the low-cost food, drinks, apartments you can rent out and public transport, to friendly people and so much to see, it’s the perfect summer, as well as the winter destination. The only thing I’m thinking of…

Pineapple, strawberry, banana & white chocolate cake

Well I’ve got a treat for all of you today! Here in Zagreb the wind’s been blowing like crazy, and I decided to spend my day in the kitchen, baking a cake of course. Pineapples and strawberries have always been one of my favourite combinations, there’s a small juice bar where they make an amazing…

Glass noodle stir-fry

It’s been a lazy Sunday so far and I’ve been binge watching Mindhunter all day. Immersed in the show I had to prepare something quick, easy and delicious, and that’s just what this glass noodle stir-fry is. When preparing stir-fry I always think about balancing out the flavours to get the perfect combination that any…

Lasagna 2.0

Last night as I was coming home from a night out, to my surprise and for the first time this season it started snowing in Zagreb. It didn’t take long until all the streets and rooftops of the houses around me were covered in snow, it was like a miracle. So the next day when…

Steak, rice & drunk salsa

It’s that time of the week again – Friday! What’s more fitting on a Friday than a recipe including alcohol, and this one certainly has it, both in the steak marinade as much as it has in the salsa. First time I stumbled upon a drunken salsa recipe, I was very interested how it would…

Cream cheese, poppy seed & apricot pie

Yes it’s that time of year again! – December is here and the Christmas market is up in Zagreb. Each street coming to the main square is lit up in Christmas lights, your taste buds go crazy at the scent of delicious food coming from the food stands at the market, you can hear groups…

Beef & Mediterranean vegetables fajitas

The perfect week for me would be if I could only eat tortilla dishes each day, of course always preparing various new and old recipes, my family wouldn’t agree and they wouldn’t even want to see tortillas in the house after the third day of my perfect week. I love tortillas as fajitas, enchiladas, tacos,…

Spicy chicken nuggets & mashed potatoes

This weekend I had no time to post a recipe, even though I have several that I want to share. I spent my weekend getting rid of a Friday hangover, with baking cakes, preparing a big family dinner for my nephew and helping out around the house. After the exhausting weekend I had, I was…

Vegetarian pizza

As it is clear from the title of the post, today I’m sharing my version of the Vegetarian pizza recipe. When it comes to pizza, for me the crust is as important as the combination of toppings on it. Every time I make homemade pizza, I always have to stop myself from using too many…

Turkey with chickpea risotto

Today I’ve just got the dinner idea you were looking for. I spent my day searching for a simple recipe for tonight’s dinner, and ended up making something totally unplanned. I didn’t use a recipe, but actually made one myself.. it’s a simple one so I certainly recommend trying it out. A bit spicy, a…

Tagliatelle with broad beans & asparagus (Vegetarian)

For the last few months I’ve made Vegetarian recipes more often than usual, don’t know if it’s about meeting more people who are Vegetarian or is it just because the Vegetarian dishes are so delicious. I’ve grown up in a moderately traditional family where we couldn’t even imagine having dinner without meat. Seems like all…

Blueberry & white chocolate cake

I absolutely love baking cakes, and winter holiday time is just the time to prepare some. When it’s cold outside, and I can’t see the street from the windows in my room because they’re covered in snow, that’s when I just want to lock myself up in the kitchen and bake cakes the whole day….
