Seed Book – the book of seed packets

Hi all, I wanted to find a way to carry my seeds to the garden a bit more easily. And also to close the opened seed packets a bit better. And I think I found it. I saw on Pinterest how some people store the seeds packets in the photo album, and thought “Ah, that’s Read More >

Propagating Sedum from leaves 🍃

Hi all,this year we sold our old house. And I wanted to keep some of the plants that I had there. Namely Sedum Neon. I really like the bright green-yellow leaves with the bright pink flowers. Since I could not carry the entire plant with me, I opted to carry the leaves. Small, compact, fits Read More >

Mushroom Goulash – goulash with mushrooms

Hi,this is one of the quintessential autumn comfy foods that I cook every year. Since we would go picking mushrooms in autumn, I associate fall with mushrooms. And thus crave this dish. It is a Croatian version of goulash, and uses bacon as a main fat. On fat rendered out of bacon we brown the Read More >

Musaka – low carb family recipe

Hi,I recently realised that my family does musaka or moussaka differently than the rest, or at least the greek restaurants around me.

(Re)Filling the pillows

Hi all,I was a bit tired of constantly buying new pillows and decided to renew some old ones by re-filling them. This process is the same as for filling pillows from scratch. The only difference is that if you are filling new pillows you won’t have to mix the fillings. You will just stuff the Read More >

We fixed our tool shed roof – sort of

Hi all, The first winter storms peeled away our tool shed roof, and we had to fix it. Well, we did fix it, but we are not 100% sure we did that correctly. Today we had an extra-strong winter storm with hurricane winds, so if this roof withstood that, then we’re golden. I made a Read More >

Halloween punch

Hi,for our Halloween dinner party I wanted to make a cocktail. But since we were planning to have wine accompanying every dish, it sounded wise to make something alcohol free – thus halloween punch. I wanted it to be pomegranate based, and it turned out that half pomegranate half sour cherry is the way to Read More >
