Ooops. Last time I told you I was going to get back to posting regularly but another month flew by like the blink of an eye. I am mostly spending my days with my now 3-month-old baby boy. Playing, laughing, walking in the park and of course feeding him. Oh, he loves that! But it’s time for mommy to get at least a little bit of the routine back. I know it will never be the same, but I am a strong believer that a baby doesn’t “end” your life. You can still...

Guess who is back (for good this time)! I am really happy and proud to announce that just few days after I posted the last recipe (on October 2nd at 0:05 am to be exact) our beautiful little son Adam arrived to this world!

This is our first baby so it has been an extremely excited and busy (obviously) few months for us. Only now I am starting to get my rhythm back bit by bit and trying to spend some time in the kitchen again. Of course I won’t be able to...

Apples here, apples there, apples everywhere! Local markets are flooded with fresh juicy apples – red, green, yellow… It’s that time of the year when nature dresses in beautiful colors and invites us to enjoy again the fall baking season! And, what’s an autumn season without a warm slice of apple cake?

I can’t imagine it without this homey and comforting cake, brimming with juicy apple slices in every single bite. It’s one...

This summer was quite busy for me, so this blog hasn’t got the attention it needed… but I have a really good excuse this time! We’re expecting our first baby in October so I’m totally overwhelmed with all the gear we need to buy! To be honest, today I felt a little bit guilty about leaving my readers without saying anything… I just needed something to dissolve my guilt and I hope these donuts will help me to do that.

Making a berry crumb cake is one of the “must do” things during the summer months. Don’t say anything. I know, it’s another recipe with strawberries. Gotta say it’s one of my favorite berries and I always want to make as many creations as possible before the season is over – starting with this bread and ending with this salad. How about you?

This time I wanted to test the combination of strawberries and cherries. It’s...

Asparagus wasn’t my favorite vegetable when I was a kid, but I have come to love it now. That vibrant green color, a tender-crisp texture and intense rich flavor that is nearly impossible to describe are a sure sign of spring and summer. My hubby still doesn’t learn to appreciate asparagus, but I know he will!

One of the easiest way to make him love this veggie is by preparing him a good meal with it for dinner. This creamy pasta is exactly what I...

Summer is my favorite season of the year. I love green nature, fresh, home grown veggies, herbs (I’m already growing basil on the windowsill in my kitchen), fruits and berries, cold refreshing drinks and fruity flavored ice creams when the temperature starts rising… But really, who doesn’t love these things?!

I made these mini hand pies over the weekend with freshly harvested rhubarb and strawberries. Honestly, I go crazy over the combination...

Let me present you the perfect appetizer for a spring time gathering. This gorgeous asparagus and goat cheese tart is so easy to prepare and I always receive compliments when I serve it. Trust me, anyone can make this, no matter how bad you think you may be in the kitchen!

I love using puff pastry for all kinds of recipes, especially for quick and easy appetizers like this one. It just makes the perfect crust – light, flaky, tender and flavorful. All without...

Who doesn’t love a juicy burger? My family definitely does. Let me tell you, these pork burgers are blow-your-mind good!! Taking that first bite, your mouth is flooded with the sweet and sour barbecue sauce which is the key ingredient into making these burgers successfully satisfying.

Just look at this photo… What could be a better proof than this juicy, tasty and totally scrumptious burger in front of you? This burger not only tastes good, but it’s...
