Dijon mustard grilled steaks & pasta with garlic mashed potatoes

When it comes to a great steak, it’s all about the perfect seasoning. For the last couple of months every time I’ve made pork steaks, I used dijon mustard combined with other seasonings as a basis for a spicy marinade. Turns out it’s an amazing idea, everyone loved it so far as it brings out…

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…

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…

Spicy chicken, broccoli & mushroom spaghetti

I don’t know if you know but the first mention of pasta was around the 5th century AD, and it refered to dried pasta that could be prepared in boiling water. It’s believed that the first forms of long and thin pasta, such as spaghetti, were first made in Sicily 700 years after the first…

Penne with Gorgonzola, baby spinach & walnuts (Vegetarian)

Creating and planning vegetarian dishes is easy if you have inspiration. It’s also easy to be vegetarian if you know how to cook and prepare delicious dishes consisting of colorful and flavorful vegetables.

Asparagus pasta (Vegetarian)

Since I made this dish for my family, probably months ago, I just couldn’t wait to post the recipe. Asparagus is a vegetable so rich in flavour and couldn’t think of a recipe where I don’t like it. It was probably faith, but the day I cooked this dish, a friend of mine brought me…

Vegetable soup (Vegetarian)

For the past three years I’ve been using Airbnb app for all my travels. I started using it on a recommendation from a friend and my first Airbnb apartment was when I went to Lisbon, Portugal three summers ago. The biggest benefit of it was that the apartments you can rent are almost 100% cheaper…

Lasagna

My first lasagna was when I was a kid and we used to go to so many restaurants during the summer while we enjoyed vacationing on the island of Hvar. There was a small Italian restaurant in the town of Stari grad with wooden tables and benches where you can sit with the family and…

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…

Creamy chicken wings

Hey guys! I got some time off from work and focused on cooking, discovering all the delicious recipes you post, meeting people from all around the world and of course seeing friends for beer. I also had time to plan a trip I’m going to in a few days, I’ll be going to Krakow for…

Beef stew

There always comes a day in a week when I crave for something more than fried or grilled food, then I turn to stews. I must admit I wasn’t a big fan until a few years back and now there almost hasn’t been a stew recipe I haven’t tried. It can really be called a…
