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 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…

Creamy pepper chicken

I’ve got some awesome news… I got a new job!! 😀 It’s temporary one for now, as I’m planning on returning to college for my Master’s degree in September, but it’s great, the people are fun and the whole work environment is wonderful. So I’ve been working for the past week, from noon till late…

Spicy vegetable salsa & steak

I always wanted to have a big garden with lots of different vegetables I could grown any time of year. Unfortunately that’s just a dream at the moment since I live in an apartment building near the city center. There are a few friends of mine who live just outside the city, and they all…

Mexican steak & vegetables stir-fry with rice

I love Mexican food, or versions of it. For some reason I always associate it with lots of vegetables, spicy dips and hot sauces, and of course tortillas. In this case there are no tortillas, but there are colorful vegetables and the spicy flavor. This is my go-to dinner idea when I have a fridge…

Coleslaw & red pepper salad with balsamic vinaigrette

Simple Tuesday calls for a simple recipe, and that’s just what this salad is. Most of the traditional main dishes call for a simple salad as a fresh addition to the meal, either it’s fresh lettuce, lamb’s lettuce, arugula or even coleslaw, tomatoes and any other seasonal vegetable. And what would a salad be without…

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…

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,…

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…
