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…

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…

Secret Dinner – Vegetarian Adventure

For a few weeks now I was thinking about a way to present my cooking and my dishes to friends who don’t have as many chances to taste the different combinations of flavours I come up with. Then an idea popped up that I could make Secret dinner parties once or a few times a…

Stuffed mushrooms

There are many ways to prepare stuffed mushrooms, from using different ingredients for the filling, to preparing them in a vegetable based sauce. I’ve prepared them through the years many times and I try to use different filling every time I do, so this is one of my favourite versions you can try out. It’s…

Roast chicken, potatoes & mushrooms

Since the weekend started and here in Croatia we usually have family dinners on Sunday, I have to share this delicious recipe for a family dinner with all of you wonderful peeps. Tomorrow I’ve invited my brother and his family over for dinner, and since I’m his younger brother, his kids love me. From the…

Asian bowls

Hi everyone! September is here, summer is coming to an end, and since I’ve returned from the seaside it’s been raining non stop. At moments there were ice cubes falling from the sky, making me think of spending my time at the beach, sunbathing and swimming in the sea just a week ago. I’m a…

Asian – European wok

For the last year, as I’ve mentioned before in my posts, I’ve been learning Chinese, and I have to say I’ve fallen behind while working on my other obligations. In a few weeks I should continue with my studies, but not sure how much I remember. The reason why I started it in the first…

Spring rolls & red bean dip (vegetarian)

For a year now I’ve been learning Chinese. I have to admit it was not mine idea, but fortunately I got into a beginners group and loved it. In the beginning it was hard to keep up with all the characters and grammar rules we learned, but one step at a time and it all…

Oven baked gnocchi with chicken in vegetable sauce

For the last few weeks I’ve been planning a trip to Italy. A country I have visited many times, traveled for my swimming competitions there, been there with friends and family, even went shopping there. But probably the most important reason why I come back every time is food. I admit there were a few…

Chicken vegetable stir-fry

Give me a bag of vegetables and a wok and let the magic happen. Slicing and dicing vegetables always calms me down and nothing is better than a dish filled with healthy and fresh vegetables. Unfortunately the last few days it’s been hard to find fresh vegetables at the market because the weather conditions made…
