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…

Tomato noodle soup (Vegetarian)

Tomato soup always reminds me of my grandmother, as many other recipes do. She had a few signature dishes and as a kid I would spend my weekends over at her house where she would show me how to cook. Even if I didn’t ask I would always see her rolling out the dough or…

Pumpkin soup

I have to admit it is not a pumpkin season this time of year here in Croatia, even though you can find butternut in every supermarket or the organic farmer’s market nowadays all year round. Pumpkin is a vegetable I love using in my kitchen, and it wasn’t something you could find on my family’s…

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…

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…

Chicken vegetable stew

The cold days are behind  us, at least they should be since it is middle of spring but for a few days now it’s been colder than some days in March. At one moment you can’t see a cloud in sight and the sun is up, and then in the next everything changes and the…

Green pea soup with crispy bacon

Last week I was at the seaside taking walks on the beach and enjoying every ray of sunshine, but returning to Zagreb it took me a few days to adapt to the low temperatures that welcomed me back. It’s even hard to believe that a day ago it was snowing near Zagreb and this part…

Tomato soup

For Easter and a last few days I’ve been to the seaside. I went there to work on my college project but I also took a chance to relax and enjoy fresh air and the sun in the sky. That familiar scent of pine trees, a light breeze coming from the sea charged all of my…

Broccoli cream soup

I love cooking on a rainy day. Usually when it rains I don’t feel like going out and then the inspiration hits. I browse for recipes, checking which ingredients are already in the fridge. Always take a piece of paper and scribble down all the ides that come to mind and it’s always hard to…
