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…

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…

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…

Bratwurst & cabbage pasta

I hope everyone had an amazing and warm Christmas with their family or people they love. I must admit I had one of the best ones yet. I spent my Christmas in Budapest, first time away from home, and even though I missed some of the traditional dishes I’d usually have prepared at home, I…

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…

Chicken cabbage stir-fry & barley

As mentioned in a post last week, I love using my wok and preparing stir-fry. I always use a different combination of ingredients and spices finding new delicious combinations of flavours. I got the idea of using cabbage in a stir fry when I went to this small but fairly popular restaurant near the busy…

Sarma & mashed potatoes

Here in Croatia it’s all about tradition. We have much to offer, from beautiful nature like all of our national parks, picturesque villages, breathtaking views of the coastline, of course our crystal clear sea and there is also food. We love to eat, and we show it by our delicious recipes. Sarma may not origin…

Asian bowls

Hi everyone! September is here, summer is coming to an end, and since I’ve returned from the seaside it’s been raining non stop. At moments there were ice cubes falling from the sky, making me think of spending my time at the beach, sunbathing and swimming in the sea just a week ago. I’m a…

Grilled chicken breast & orecchiette with cabbage

We live in a fast paced world where we do hundreds of things a day, often not thinking what we eat during those 10 min we have for ourselves. This recipe is just one of those recipes you need when you’re busy and don’t have time to cook lavish lunches or dinners. Chicken meat is…

Grilled bream and cooked vegetables

It’s said that eating fish at least two to three times a week is absolutely necessary for your health. I don’t eat fish because it’s necessary, I eat it because it’s delicious. There is always fresh fish at the market and there is no excuse not to cook it. Preparation: 10 min        …
