Zagreb steak

Zagreb is my city, it’s where I was born, where I live, work and go to school. Sometimes it seems like a boring city with so much potential, usually on those days when all of your friends have plans and you just wish you can pack a bag and travel somewhere far and exotic, but…

Leek stew

Every time my mom made this stew when I was a kid, I would always say “We just had it last week” and the fact was that we had it more then 3 months ago. I wasn’t a stew-lover and I hated it for years to come, but then something changed and I grew to like…

Steak & green bean salad

Green beans, since I was a kid, we’ve eaten them in stews most of the time. My mother prepared them regularly every two weeks and I wasn’t a big fan, I didn’t even like it when my grandma made them but I always remember breaking green beans in half with her. She would buy a…

BBQ skewers

Skewers have been used since man started preparing food over the flame. Easiest way to do so was to skewer meat on wooden sticks which were placed over the fire. Not a lot has changed since, people all over the world love kebabs and almost every country in the world has its own skewered dish….

Cheese & ham stuffed burgers

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows, ok that’s not true – I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows for years now. But honestly there are so many on my list, so I’ve turned to TV shows and stopped watching movies. My friends always joke that I don’t know any of the…

Pork chops with gnocchi in mushroom sauce

The first recipe I used wine in was my famous mushroom sauce. It’s also one of my favourite recipes and the one my friends always ask me to make when we go on a road trip to the seaside. The best thing is that my friend makes the best white wine from white grapes from…

Pork roast & potatoes

Tomorrow I’m going to the seaside, it’s been a long time coming. I’m mixing business with pleasure as they say, a bit of work on my projects, a bit of relaxing and a whole lot of cooking. The only thing I’m hoping for is good weather, sun in the sky, a cloud nowhere to be…

Steak filled with cheese, grilled pepper & zucchini

I love this recipe so much. It combines two of my favorite things, steak and grilled vegetables. As it happens, I had grilled vegetables for lunch today – grilled bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, onion and mushrooms, topped with olive oil, pressed garlic, a pinch of salt & pepper and aceto balsamico reduction. It is probably…

Grilled pork steak, croquettes and zucchini

Hey guys! So I know I’m not the only one thinking of food so many times during the day. I find myself going through recipes in my head while on my way to work or class driving in a tram. It’s been less than a month that I’ve been working at my new student job…

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…

Baked pork chops with pumpkin & oyster mushrooms

Pumpkin is the perfect vegetable, it can be used in so many recipes. It can be used in desserts like pumpkin pies or cakes. It can be cooked as a soup or a vegetable stew.  There are also delicious main courses, appetizers, even pumpkin cocktails or liqueurs. It’s lately that I started cooking with pumpkin,…
