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…

Spicy vegetable salsa & steak

I always wanted to have a big garden with lots of different vegetables I could grown any time of year. Unfortunately that’s just a dream at the moment since I live in an apartment building near the city center. There are a few friends of mine who live just outside the city, and they all…

Mexican steak & vegetables stir-fry with rice

I love Mexican food, or versions of it. For some reason I always associate it with lots of vegetables, spicy dips and hot sauces, and of course tortillas. In this case there are no tortillas, but there are colorful vegetables and the spicy flavor. This is my go-to dinner idea when I have a fridge…

Beef & Mediterranean vegetables fajitas

The perfect week for me would be if I could only eat tortilla dishes each day, of course always preparing various new and old recipes, my family wouldn’t agree and they wouldn’t even want to see tortillas in the house after the third day of my perfect week.

Chilli con carne tortilla stack

As it gets colder outside I love preparing those hot saucy dishes, like Chilli con carne, that are the pure definition of Comfort food. My family enjoys it, and actually my sister was the one who shared the idea of adding bacon to the recipe for that smoked delicious flavour. I always picture myself with…

Grilled chicken salad

Fried sardines & seasonal salad

Yesterday I had my first Secret dinner party, and two of my specially picked out guests came over. I was cooking all day and preparing dishes one after the other, in the end I had no time to post a recipe. In one of my next posts I’ll be sharing all about the Secret dinner…

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,…
