Creamy pepper chicken

I’ve got some awesome news… I got a new job!! 😀 It’s temporary one for now, as I’m planning on returning to college for my Master’s degree in September, but it’s great, the people are fun and the whole work environment is wonderful. So I’ve been working for the past week, from noon till late…

Spicy beef stir-fry with rice noodles

Every time I’m busy and I’ve got a fridge full of fresh vegetables, I choose stir-fry for lunch or dinner. It’s the easiest and most flavorful dish you can prepare with any combination of ingredients in practically no time. I also love spicy food, and a few months back I bought the large extra hot…

Beef & Mediterranean vegetables fajitas

The perfect week for me would be if I could only eat tortilla dishes each day, of course always preparing various new and old recipes, my family wouldn’t agree and they wouldn’t even want to see tortillas in the house after the third day of my perfect week. I love tortillas as fajitas, enchiladas, tacos,…

Rump steak & barley

Every time I would leave for a competition in swimming or diving when I was a kid, and then after as a teenager, I would always have a wish which dish my mother would make me when I return home. My competitions were usually out of the city, especially when I started training diving and…

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…

Spicy beef & vegetable stir fry

First time I made stir fry I didn’t even have a wok to cook it in. I searched for a recipe, since a friend of mine told me I had to try it out, you have to understand it was years ago when such dishes weren’t even on the menus of restaurants in Zagreb. After…

Roast duck, potatoes & pumpkin

Every time someone mentions roasted duck I think of Christmas or Easter or any other occasion my family gets together and hangs out. I have to admit, there is rarely an occasion that we all really get together, because my brother has a family of his own and my sister has her family. When we…

Ground beef, tomato, potato & bell pepper casserole

I can feel the summer in the air, the hot nights when you just can’t get any sleep, the days when you’d rather be inside the house with the AC turned on. We in Croatia spend our summers at the seaside, where most of us have our vacation homes. For the last five or six…

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 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…
