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 […]
I was affraid of cantaloupes as a child. Not because someone hit me in the head with it but in the nose. Not in the way you might think, but the scent would hit me hard everytime my Grandma cracked this yellow baseball open. So I ran. And my Grandma really loved cantaloupes and I […]
Well, of course baked potatoe salad is nothing new, letalone some recipe, right? In Croatia people would say, “To je topla voda”, which means, “That’s warm water”. Meaning, that’s invented long time ago. So yes, baked potatoe salad is warm water in terms of invention and originality but I’ll rather think of it as a […]

Don’t you just love nectarines? I do. I literally can’t stop eating them. I like them firm and not ripe at all. You know, when you take a bite and it kind of cracks. That’s my kind of nectarine. That’s my kind of any fruit, I guess. I eat fruit when it’s just about to […]
You know about Kimchi, right? If not, like not so long ago me, do find out! Because Kimchi not only has a great taste and so many health benefits for you, but also gives endless opportunities for you to play with: have it all ready in your fridge when you don’t know what to […]
I was feeling a bit low earlier today and I thought, what would my Grandma say. And she’s been at St. Peter’s for almost 20 years now and even if she did say something that I could use in this specific situation, I don’t remember it anymore. But one thing did came across my mind: […]
There’s been much debate these days about naming recipes. Namely, when you make something inspired by something that is not quite like original stuff and how far can you go when naming your recipe.
