It’s January again, it’s dark and gloomy, and quite honestly, we’ve run out of more fun stuff to do. Our usual excuses for not blogging are falling flat now that there are no outdoor events to attend. No street food also means we are back to our usual ways of non-stop cooking and thinking about food, we just… Continue reading Parmesan crust pie / Engleska pita s parmezanom / Piirakka parmesan taikinalla

January cookies / Siječanjski keksi / Talvikeksit

There is one really bad thing about oatmeal cookies. Those whole five minutes when you’re supposed to be waiting for them to firm up after pulling the tray out of the oven.

Fig Pizza / Pizza sa smokvama / Rapea pizza viikunalla

Hidden inside every kitchen and waiting to make the most delicious pizzas is a traditional Italian wood-fire oven. Where is it you ask? Have a look around your kitchen, what do you think? Here’s a hint, its under your stove-top and doesn’t seem all that exciting.

Chilly Cucumber soup / Osvježavajuća juha od krastavaca / Viileä kurkkukeitto

  When we cannot go to the beach for a weekend escape from the heat in Zagreb we think of all types of different ideas to stay cool while the temperatures rise. As much as we love the sauna we prefer not to have our apartment turning into one every time we use the oven. Putting… Continue reading Chilly Cucumber soup / Osvježavajuća juha od krastavaca / Viileä kurkkukeitto
