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….

Burek 2.0

I’ve already posted a recipe for Burek about half a year ago, but Burek is a type of pastry we Croatians and all of the other people from Balkans love and I certainly think it’s a must-try if you visit any of these parts. Today you can find this type of pastry with fresh cheese,…

Pork belly & roasted potatoes

This is one of those days when inspiration doesn’t hit and you have to stay with what you know works. Pork belly and roasted potatoes are a classic dish, but when it comes to classics it’s all about the spices and seasoning you’re going to use to make them stand out. That’s what I did…

Gravče tavče

I had a chance to look after my niece and nephew this weekend, and it was crazy, both fun and exhausting. They are 3 and 1-year-old, just the time when they have probably the most energy and want to try and do everything. I didn’t get a minute to sit down, but that’s what I…

Nutella covered Blueberry & Milka pancake muffins

What is better than pancakes? – Pancake muffins! I love preparing cupcakes and muffins because they’re smaller versions of cakes and pies that I would usually make, and pretty easy to share with friends and family. At least once a week I prepare a different batch of cupcakes, and bring them with me to pubs…

Steak with vegetable & bacon barley

It’s finally Friday and I’m going out tonight! When going out, for me it’s all about having an amazing dinner before, to set the mood. Being happy about it, I prepared something delicious for dinner. This is already a good old classic in my home, but I just can’t get enough of these Dijon mustard &…
