Hi all,I thought I had already written the recipe for Cream of Mushrooms Soup. Appears not. Let’s correct that. This is one of the first soups I got from my Grandmas cookbook. Or cook-notebook to be precise. It was written by hand in her notebook, that had many of delicious recipes. Some of them I 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.

Halloween punch

Whole sour cabbage – TAKE 1 – discovering the recipe

Beet gnocchi – Gluten-free & naturally pink!

Hi,last year for our anniversary I made beet gnocchi. Apparently, hubby loved them so much that they will now be on our menu more often. They are best accompanied by simple butter sauce. Be it browned butter and sage sauce, or a white butter sauce, similar to Alfredo. Since they are delicate and sweeter tasting Read More >

Christmas lasagna – a homemade, tasty treat

Hi,while lasagnas are not a traditional Croatian fare for holidays, we are making our own family traditions. And since we love lasagna, we decided to make an extra decadent version for our Yule/Christmas table. We make everything from scratch – the green pasta, the meat sauce, and the bĂ©chamel. This is an all hands on Read More >
