Aubergine mini pizzas

So this post is totally dedicated to my 2017 summer, which I spent mostly on the island of Vir, Croatia. Almost a month, I was away from home, enjoying the sun and the most beautiful Adriatic sea, cooking all kinds of recipes – mostly with the homegrown vegetables we had at our vacation home. That…

Family barbecue & 2 year blogiversary

2 years ago today I started my blog. Well, actually I just got registered and started writing posts and recipes almost half a year later, but this is the official date. Since then I’ve posted around 200 recipes, I’ve got around 1200 amazing bloggers following my blog and most importantly I still enjoy writting every…

Zucchini patties (Vegetarian)

Zucchini patties are probably the easiest dish and recipe you can make. Last week my 8-year-oldĀ cousin was over at our family dinner and he prepared some himself. Not only are they easy to make, they are most delicious, especially when you add some Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese. The best way to serve them is with…

Stuffed calamari

This morning Zagreb was covered in fog, like a cold blanket it settled above the streets and crawled in between the buildings. I could feel the cold air trying to get in through the windows of my apartment, while I was trying to find the sun they said was coming out today. Unable to find…

Zagreb steak

Zagreb is my city, it’s where I was born, where I live, work and go to school. Sometimes it seems like a boring city with so much potential, usually on those days when all of your friends have plans and you just wish you can pack a bag and travel somewhere far and exotic, but…

Enchiladas

First time I tried Mexican food was when I went to a Mexican restaurant in Zagreb. At the time there were only two or three restaurants serving Mexican food in or near Zagreb and this one was for a long time my favourite. First of all when you entered it looked like a pirate ship,…

Pear cheesecake

When preparing a cake I always think of which ingredients and flavours to combine, experimenting in a way and getting a really tasty result. But all cooking is experimenting in a way, either you are repeating someone’s experiment by following their recipe or you are creating yourself a new delicious dish to surprise your guests….

Potato casserole

Everyone had that moment when they opened their fridge and started staring at it like it’s the TV wondering what to make for lunch or dinner. I’ve had the same thing happen to me a number of times and every single time a delicious dish came out of it. I just used the ingredients I…

Lasagna

My first lasagna was when I was a kid and we used to go to so many restaurants during the summer while we enjoyed vacationing on the island of Hvar. There was a small Italian restaurant in the town of Stari grad with wooden tables and benches where you can sit with the family and…

Apple cheese tart

I love making pastries, and desserts, and cakes. Usually I’m the one who gets the last piece of the pie, but I enjoy making it, just for the smiling faces around me who really love what I make. For a few weeks now I couldn’t find time to make a proper dessert because of work,…

Cheese & ham stuffed burgers

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows, ok that’s not true – I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows for years now. But honestly there are so many on my list, so I’ve turned to TV shows and stopped watching movies. My friends always joke that I don’t know any of the…

Steak sandwich

I’m always thinking of or looking for an interesting new lunch idea. There are so many bookmarked recipes I’ve got, there are those printed out just waiting on my desk, even the ones I’ve singled out in different cookbooks my mother bought. Even then I’m just stuck and can’t decide on what to make. But…
