Vegetable noodle soup

The best hangover cure for me is my mum’s Vegetable noodle soup. Just last week I went out on a Saturday night with some friends and after partying I couldn’t wait to enjoy some hot vegetable noodle soup my mum made for lunch the next day. There’s just something about having a spoonful of soup…

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…

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…

Spicy beef stir-fry with rice noodles

Every time I’m busy and I’ve got a fridge full of fresh vegetables, I choose stir-fry for lunch or dinner. It’s the easiest and most flavorful dish you can prepare with any combination of ingredients in practically no time. I also love spicy food, and a few months back I bought the large extra hot…

Bacon & carrot barley and steak

I’ve shared a couple of versions of this recipe, just because I love this dish and can’t get enough of it. As a kid my grandma was the only one who even cooked with barley and she always used it in her Bean and smoked ham stew. Growing up and cooking on my own I…

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…

Steak, rice & drunk salsa

It’s that time of the week again – Friday! What’s more fitting on a Friday than a recipe including alcohol, and this one certainly has it, both in the steak marinade as much as it has in the salsa. First time I stumbled upon a drunken salsa recipe, I was very interested how it would…

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…

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 &…

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…
