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. Oh wait, there’s another thing, the age-old problem that the whole batch might be sitting happily in your tummy before your girlfriend even lays… Continue reading January cookies / Siječanjski keksi / Talvikeksit

Lingonberry cheesecake / Torta od sira s bobicama / Puolukka juustokakku

Guess what? Tilli & Ružmarin will soon be growing in the same herb garden / We’re putting all our eggs into one basket / We’re continuing like two peas in a pod.

Panna Cotta with Balsamic Strawberries / Panna cotta s jagodama u balzamičnom octu / Panna cotta balsamietikka mansikoiden kera

There’s something special about the way this dessert shakes and wobbles as it is set in front of you, suspended in a magical phase exactly half-way between liquid and solid. Spoons simply disappear into the panna cotta sphere as if there was a magnet hidden somewhere in the creamy depths. It can be as simple as this… Continue reading Panna Cotta with Balsamic Strawberries / Panna cotta s jagodama u balzamičnom octu / Panna cotta balsamietikka mansikoiden kera

Banana Bread / Kruh od banane / Banaanileipä

The winter has marked its arrival with a heavy dusting of snow, and along with it comes the need for comforting recipes. With the dropping temperatures also come mornings when you just don’t want to get out of bed, torturous times when the bedroom floor becomes an icy trap. A way to make these days better… Continue reading Banana Bread / Kruh od banane / Banaanileipä

Ultimate Carrot Cake / Torta od mrkve / Matin porkkanakakku

Imagine how good this cake has to be if it managed to convert Tilli who wasn’t really a dessert person and Ružmarin, who thought a dessert without chocolate is just not one worth making. We successfully avoided carrot cake at cake shops for quite a while, but when Tilli’s dad introduced us to this little… Continue reading Ultimate Carrot Cake / Torta od mrkve / Matin porkkanakakku
