Green Smoothie Bowl

A great breakfast on the go if you make it a smoothie, or a super pretty a bit more filling one if you make it as a bowl. Not too sweet either and packed with fibre, omega-3, protein, vitamins and minerals. And the color is just so pretty. It’s works great if you make it…

“Concrete” cake

Before returning back to Slovenia and getting back to all the whisking, piping and scraping that a cake requires, I wanted to refresh my caking skills and see some of that lovely Australian sharp edges being crafted on one in action. Luckily, one of the most inspiring cake decorators, creating under the brand The Don’t…

Coconut & Mango “Ice-Cream”

Every month or so I accidentally make a breakfast that I then like way too much and become obsessed with it for a couple of months, making little variations on it. The latest was this breakfast ice-cream/frozen smoothie bowl for which you actually need only 3 ingredients and they’re all pretty good for you. It…

Kombucha

  One of the amazing things I got acquainted with here in Australia is definitely Kombucha. Not only it is super refreshing and delicious but has numerous amazing benefits as well. It is detoxifying (hello glowing skin and good-bye hangover), an amazing probiotic restoring the balance in your body (works amazingly after antibiotic treatments),  immunity-boosting…

Green Smoothie

This veggie smoothie is my new favorite way to start a day, so refreshing, hydrating, and an amazing way to get the proper dose of greens into the system. I used to be a bit afraid of putting too many veggies in smoothies and juices and started this one with some mango and orange juice…

The El-Nido Salad

It was a couple of years ago, on the Palawan island in the Philippines, where travelling with my family we have stumbled upon this amazing little cafe/restaurant in the town of El-Nido. Almost never does it happen that we would go out to eat in the same place twice while travelling, but this place was just…

Multi-Grain Porridge

I’ve posted this recipe quite a while ago but have been giving it some different spins and found this version that I like best, so here it goes, the updated one… If you ever run out of breakfast ideas and you want to include some more whole grains in your diet you may want to give…

Vanilla Crescents

  Summer may be in full swing here in Australia, but if this is the first December, January, February etc.  you’ve spent living on the Southern hemisphere it’s hard to completely forget the little winter notions these months bare. And one of those traditions are definitely these almond/vanilla crescent cookies. Covered in the little bits of icing…

Crunchy, Healthy Granola

One of my favorite things on the breakfast menus here in Sydney are definitely all the million different granola/fruit/yoghurt combinations, and I’m always super inspired to see all the various ingredients the chefs pair together. But it all starts with a nice granola base, and what better way to have it whenever you like than…

Mermaid Cake

Finally got those marble macaroons right, and what better way than to put them on a cake with turquoise marble drip. Chocolate cake, dark chocolate and raspberry filling, dark chocolate mousse on the outside and white chocolate turqoise colored drip. And the macaroons? Dark chocolate ganache, to make them nice and firm to decorate this…

Pumpkin-Filled Ravioli with…

…home-made tomato sauce, crispy sage, pancetta and chesnuts and topped with some parmesan and buffalo mozzarella. Oh and the pasta dough alone has a bit of beetroot in for some extra flavour and color. Talk about all the amazing autumn ingredients combined with a touch of summer. The ravioli alone are a whole another topic…

The Best Autumn Crumble Ever

What  do you do when you have some almond croissants filling left in the fridge and too many ripe pears in your garden? You put Apple Crumble and Pear Tart with Frangipane together and are absolutely amazed by the result. Definitely the best crumble I’ve ever made, and definitely worth those extra minutes of preping the pears in advance for…
