Tagliatelle with broad beans & asparagus (Vegetarian)

For the last few months I’ve made Vegetarian recipes more often than usual, don’t know if it’s about meeting more people who are Vegetarian or is it just because the Vegetarian dishes are so delicious. I’ve grown up in a moderately traditional family where we couldn’t even imagine having dinner without meat. Seems like all…

Green bean stew & spicy chicken wings

Here in Croatia if you have a grandma and you visit her at least once a week, you’ve probably experienced breaking green beans in half with her. My grandma played a big role in my life and I always visited her at least once a week, mostly on Sundays. During those visits I saw her…

Enchiladas

Broccoli cream soup

I love cooking on a rainy day. Usually when it rains I don’t feel like going out and then the inspiration hits. I browse for recipes, checking which ingredients are already in the fridge. Always take a piece of paper and scribble down all the ides that come to mind and it’s always hard to…
