Arancini

Even though it’s been a few days since I came back home from the seaside it’s like I’m still there. The perfect blue sky without a cloud in sight, and a golden sun waking me up every morning. Even the wind in the cold streets of Zagreb reminds me of a light salty breeze coming…

Mozzarella roasted potatoes

After hiking all day yesterday today came the results, not as much as I expected, but still there was some muscle pain. Oddly it just made me want to go hiking again, and talking with friends we made a plan to go again next weekend. It’s a great opportunity to spend a day surrounded by…

Forest fruit cheesecake

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert, I love the combination of sweet cookies and cream cheese, especially if there are strawberries or any berries in the mix bringing that sour-sweet freshness. It is possibly the easiest cake to make and uses just a few ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge. My first cheesecake…

Steak filled with cheese, grilled pepper & zucchini

I love this recipe so much. It combines two of my favorite things, steak and grilled vegetables. As it happens, I had grilled vegetables for lunch today – grilled bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, onion and mushrooms, topped with olive oil, pressed garlic, a pinch of salt & pepper and aceto balsamico reduction. It is probably…

Cheesecake with chocolate glaze

A delicious pie, who doesn’t like it? There is a tasty grandma pie as I call it – a traditional apple pie with cinnamon, as I remember it I can imagine the scent of freshly baked pie passing through the rooms of the house. There is also a scrumptious pumpkin pie – not so popular…

Pizza

There is nothing better than sharing a homemade pizza with your family. There is something about it that makes it better than ordering in. Looking for the toppings in the fridge, grating cheese and ham, slicing mushrooms and making the tomato sauce surrounded with warmth and love of your family home in winter, Christmas songs…

Zagreb steak & pea risotto

I love Zagreb, it’s where I was born, where I learned how to drive a bicycle, where I had my first birthday party and where I’m still living and spending days studying for my Bachelor’s degree in Robotics & Mechatronics. Zagreb has a lot of beautiful places and hidden spots, where you can find great food…

Cheeseburger

Mouthwatering, delicious hamburger! Everybody is looking for that one, that will change the way you see food, that will take you to another world, with the perfect taste. I’m also one of those people trying out hamburgers in every restaurant in Zagreb or any other country I have visited so far. But true love is…

Mushroom & leek tart

Don’t know about you guys, but when cooking I always try to use vegetables that are as fresh as can be, bought at the local market. There you can find a lot of local vendors selling their homegrown vegetables and fruit, from tasty tomatoes to crisp lettuce and sweetest strawberries you’ve ever tried. I already…
