Carrot cake

When I told my friends at college that I’ll be bringing carrot cake to class they were apprehensive. Carrot cake isn’t as popular here, and many people never tried it. I must admit I was one of them until a few years ago when I stumbled upon a carrot cake recipe. I was interested how…

Chicken breast, potatoes & zucchini

Last Sunday my family came over for dinner. It’s been days since they visited and we all hung out. It was the perfect chance for me to play with my nephew and niece. They’re three and one year old and every time they come over they pull out all of my old toys. So not…

Bacon stuffed gnocchi with creamy broccoli

Here in Croatia gnocchi are very often served at the seaside prepared by many different recipes. Often served with tomato sauce or creamy sauces like quattro formaggi. When I traveled to Italy I always ate quattro formaggi gnocchi, from Venice to Padua and Bologna. While eating my way through one of those cities I discovered…

Fried sardines & Red bean salad

When making seafood dishes, especially fish, simplicity is key. I grew up eating grilled fish with just a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice so fish prepared this way is the best for me. Grilling fish on a simple grill, brushing it with rosemary covered in olive…

Chocolate hazelnut muffins

Hey guys! For me muffins are a starter cake, meaning before you want to try and make a cake, you can practice with muffins. If you get them perfect, you’re ready to make a cake. There are so many combinations of ingredients and recipes you can try out. Chocolate ones are the most common and…

Grilled steak and broccoli

Hey guys! With steaks it is all about grilling them perfectly, whether you like them raw, medium raw or well done. I love organizing barbecues with friend or family. Usually we all get together at my brother’s house where we grill meat in the yard, where we can all play with his kids. Or if with…

Creamy chicken wings

Hey guys! I got some time off from work and focused on cooking, discovering all the delicious recipes you post, meeting people from all around the world and of course seeing friends for beer. I also had time to plan a trip I’m going to in a few days, I’ll be going to Krakow for…

Grilled asparagus & broccoli

Hey guys! Do you ever find yourself racking your brain thinking about the side dish you’re going to serve next to a juicy rib eye steak or grilled chicken breast? Well it happens to me more often than I’d care to admit. But there is an easy, delicious and healthy solution if you love grilled…

Forest fruit cheesecake

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert, I love the combination of sweet cookies and cream cheese, especially if there are strawberries or any berries in the mix bringing that sour-sweet freshness. It is possibly the easiest cake to make and uses just a few ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge. My first cheesecake…

Steak filled with cheese, grilled pepper & zucchini

I love this recipe so much. It combines two of my favorite things, steak and grilled vegetables. As it happens, I had grilled vegetables for lunch today – grilled bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, onion and mushrooms, topped with olive oil, pressed garlic, a pinch of salt & pepper and aceto balsamico reduction. It is probably…
