The old school bus arrives in my tiny village. I’m going out on the last station with a too heavy bag that I can’t wait to get off my back. While I walk those few hundred yards to my house my nose usually becomes red as Rudolf’s and my toes are cold because my feet […]
“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.” Margaret Fuller Guided by this saying, ladies, and gentlemen, I solemnly open a new subcategory on my blog (red ribbon, snip!), under the name “Photography”.

Do you know how excited I am about the fact that this recipe is finally up on my blog? So much that I’m doing my happy dance while I’m writing this to you! Brad knows it. It’s strawberry season. Homegrown strawberries can be found at, literally, every step in Zagreb. With their alluring scent […]

When you want to treat yourself with something totally irresistible and hedonistic, you should make this dessert. To me, this could easily become a treat for those moments in which you are so proud of some of your personal success that you want to pat yourself on the back.

This cheesecake proved to me that the cake can be both beautiful and little messy but still look and taste great. How to make a cake […]
