Asian bowls

Hi everyone! September is here, summer is coming to an end, and since I’ve returned from the seaside it’s been raining non stop. At moments there were ice cubes falling from the sky, making me think of spending my time at the beach, sunbathing and swimming in the sea just a week ago. I’m a…

Asian – European wok

For the last year, as I’ve mentioned before in my posts, I’ve been learning Chinese, and I have to say I’ve fallen behind while working on my other obligations. In a few weeks I should continue with my studies, but not sure how much I remember. The reason why I started it in the first…

Stir-fry vegetables & rice (Vegetarian)

While staying at the seaside, I had a chance to see some of my friends, catch up, swim & sunbathe with them and hang out. Some of them also came to the coast from Zagreb, like one of my best friends who came to stay with me for a few days. As she is a…

It felt like there was no other…

Chicken vegetable stir-fry

Give me a bag of vegetables and a wok and let the magic happen. Slicing and dicing vegetables always calms me down and nothing is better than a dish filled with healthy and fresh vegetables. Unfortunately the last few days it’s been hard to find fresh vegetables at the market because the weather conditions made…
