Vegetable noodle soup

The best hangover cure for me is my mum’s Vegetable noodle soup. Just last week I went out on a Saturday night with some friends and after partying I couldn’t wait to enjoy some hot vegetable noodle soup my mum made for lunch the next day. There’s just something about having a spoonful of soup…

Creamy broccoli, green pea & chicken pasta

It’s another sunny and relaxing Sunday here in Zagreb, Croatia and you can just feel the summer that’s just around the corner. And while dreaming of the seaside, planning the perfect time to go on vacation, I decided to share this yummy recipe. I’m absolutely certain you’ll love it since it has just the right…

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…

White wine Mussels & garlic bread

It’s been so cold for days now in Zagreb and all I’m thinking about is summer and spending my time at the beach or swimming in the sea. Every time I think of summer, delicious Mediterranean recipes pop up, either it’s fish or other seafood, I love it all, especially as I’m used to preparing…

Grilled steak topped with mushroom sauce & fries

For the last few days I’ve been helping out my dad with a big job in his firm and it’s the longest time in a while that I stayed out of a kitchen. I also didn’t have time to stop by my blog and share this recipe that I’ve been keeping as a draft for…

Coleslaw & red pepper salad with balsamic vinaigrette

Simple Tuesday calls for a simple recipe, and that’s just what this salad is. Most of the traditional main dishes call for a simple salad as a fresh addition to the meal, either it’s fresh lettuce, lamb’s lettuce, arugula or even coleslaw, tomatoes and any other seasonal vegetable. And what would a salad be without…

New Year’s post – Grilled Adriatic bream

For the last day in the amazing 2017 I prepared an equally amazing recipe that showcases Croatian fresh products and simple delicious cuisine. 2017 was an incredible one for me: I went to Krakow, Poland on a road trip with six of my friends I visited the island of Vis and Hvar where I used…

Bratwurst & cabbage pasta

I hope everyone had an amazing and warm Christmas with their family or people they love. I must admit I had one of the best ones yet. I spent my Christmas in Budapest, first time away from home, and even though I missed some of the traditional dishes I’d usually have prepared at home, I…

Pineapple, strawberry, banana & white chocolate cake

Well I’ve got a treat for all of you today! Here in Zagreb the wind’s been blowing like crazy, and I decided to spend my day in the kitchen, baking a cake of course. Pineapples and strawberries have always been one of my favourite combinations, there’s a small juice bar where they make an amazing…

Steak, rice & drunk salsa

It’s that time of the week again – Friday! What’s more fitting on a Friday than a recipe including alcohol, and this one certainly has it, both in the steak marinade as much as it has in the salsa. First time I stumbled upon a drunken salsa recipe, I was very interested how it would…

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…
