Zucchini patties (Vegetarian)

Zucchini patties are probably the easiest dish and recipe you can make. Last week my 8-year-old cousin was over at our family dinner and he prepared some himself. Not only are they easy to make, they are most delicious, especially when you add some Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese. The best way to serve them is with…

Stuffed cheesy calamari

I’m sharing this recipe today because in my family we always prepare seafood dishes on Friday, so this is a great option for tomorrow’s dinner. Either it’s fish, clams, or squid, I’m always looking forward to that time of the week when I get the chance to prepare a seafood dish. Don’t know if it’s…

Spicy chicken nuggets & mashed potatoes

This weekend I had no time to post a recipe, even though I have several that I want to share. I spent my weekend getting rid of a Friday hangover, with baking cakes, preparing a big family dinner for my nephew and helping out around the house. After the exhausting weekend I had, I was…

Pork belly and polenta with mushrooms & chickpeas

Are you sick and tired of always preparing the same side dish, most usually potatoes hundreds of different ways? Are you looking for something new, a recipe that will seduce your taste buds and open your eyes to new ideas?.. – Well this Polenta with mushrooms & chickpeas has certainly opened my eyes, and showed…

Vegetable pie (Vegetarian)

Many of my friends are vegetarian so they’ll be happy to see me posting and sharing this simple and delicious recipe. I’m also glad to be sharing it with all of you since it is so tasty and even those of you who aren’t vegetarian would be full after enjoying a pie like this. I’ve…

Beef tomato pasta

This weekend was a great one. On Saturday both my niece and my nephew came over for a visit after I prepared dozens of pancakes, some with chocolate, some with strawberry jam, plumb jam and even raspberry jam. All of them I got from a friend who makes fruit jams and they’re one of the…

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…

Bacon stuffed gnocchi with creamy broccoli

Here in Croatia gnocchi are very often served at the seaside prepared by many different recipes. Often served with tomato sauce or creamy sauces like quattro formaggi. When I traveled to Italy I always ate quattro formaggi gnocchi, from Venice to Padua and Bologna. While eating my way through one of those cities I discovered…

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…

Tomato & onion omelette

This is probably the easiest recipe, but the best recipe if you’re late for work or your class and haven’t had your breakfast. As I mentioned before I’m not a big fan of it and I regularly skip it, simply because I’m usually always in a hurry, running of to college or working. I know…

Seafood lasagna

I know most of you love lasagna. Layer upon layer of freshly chopped tomatoes mixed with ground meat covered in melted cheese. Makes your mouth water just imagining taking a bite out of it. But have you ever tried seafood lasagna? I must admit, I was also taken aback when I first saw the title…
