Persimmon time of the year is here! Don’t you just love persimmons? Oh, juicy, sweet, delicious fruit that can be combined in endless sweet and savoury dishes. Many people told me that they just love to eat them raw, as they are, but me, as cooking all day as I do, am always pondering some […]
The silliest thing about this salad is that French salad, in this form, doesn’t exist in France. Only in Croatia. I know, it doesn’t make much sense. But it is so. This hearty “fit for all” side dish is made in all Croatian regions. There is not a holiday anywhere in my country without a […]
It was a quiet day. As quiet as cabbage can be. And fennel too. I wasn’t always on familiar terms with fennel, must admit. My Grandma didn’t have it in her garden and when it was brought my attention to it some decade ago, I turned away my nose in a frown. Don’t you like […]

Except me, because here and there and buckwheat everywhere, and I still kept avoiding it like Green Eggs […]

I did clean and garden, but not quite because of spring but because of all the dust and stuff you don’t want to know but am sure you also […]

Stir fry is one of those inventions that I embraced with all of my heart and cooking pots. I mean, what is there not to like? It’s fast, it’s easy, it’s always packed with great veggies, spices, and condiments and plays equally well as a main and side dish too. And what’s even better, it […]
There’s nothing simpler than pasta and garlic on some olive oil, but how about some broccoli on top? Yup. And that’s all to it. After all that holiday cooking, it’s time for a little break, don’t you think? For dishes that have nothing much about it’s recipe and are done in a sec? Ones that […]
