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 &…

Chilli con carne tortilla stack

As it gets colder outside I love preparing those hot saucy dishes, like Chilli con carne, that are the pure definition of Comfort food. My family enjoys it, and actually my sister was the one who shared the idea of adding bacon to the recipe for that smoked delicious flavour. I always picture myself with…

Seasonal salad with Balsamic dressing

When it comes to lunch or dinner, salad of any kind is unavoidable on my menu. Lettuce is mainly what I prepare and I buy one each day at the local farmers’ market. For the last few years I’ve been adding arugula to it, or lamb’s lettuce, radicchio, baby spinach or some of the fresh…

Rump steak & barley

Every time I would leave for a competition in swimming or diving when I was a kid, and then after as a teenager, I would always have a wish which dish my mother would make me when I return home. My competitions were usually out of the city, especially when I started training diving and…

Lava cake (Gluten-free)

Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. When it comes to gluten it is generally referred to proteins that can be found in wheat flour, so people who have Celiac disease can’t eat different pastry products,…

Chicken, pineapple & vegetable stir-fry

Usually this would be a perfect summer recipe, it has all of the fresh and colorful ingredients you can find at the local farmer’s market during summer, but I needed a dash of color for one of these gray autumn days. Today you can find some vegetables at the market all year round, no matter…

Bacon wrapped & Mozzarella stuffed pork tenderloin

For the last few days I haven’t posted any new recipes, have to admit I spent my time looking for a new job, hanging out with friends and working on some other projects. Honestly I really missed out on writing new posts, editing my recipes and sharing them with all of you wonderful people out…

Spicy chicken, broccoli & mushroom spaghetti

I don’t know if you know but the first mention of pasta was around the 5th century AD, and it refered to dried pasta that could be prepared in boiling water. It’s believed that the first forms of long and thin pasta, such as spaghetti, were first made in Sicily 700 years after the first…
