Father’s Day


To be honest I like the idea of Father’s Day, this special day when all the eyes are turned to them, when they get some extra kisses and hugs and receive presents and spoil. I don’t like a fact that it is really used in commercial purposes, but that is the other story…
All the week I was helping kids to make present and at the end I think it was really worth time and effort. We made small simple presents with a lot of love and my contribution to present are these simple blueberry muffins we are going to eat together today 🙂

Para ser sincera gosto da ideia do Dia do Pai, este dia especial quando todos os olhos estão virados para eles, quando eles recebem um beijos e abraços extra e recebem presentes e mimos. Não gosto do facto de ser usado com intuitos comerciais, mas isso é outra história…
Durante toda a semana ajudei os miúdos a fazer o presente e no final acho que valeu mesmo a pena o tempo e esforço. Fizemos uns presentes pequenos e simples com muito amor e a minha contribuição para o presente foram estes muffins de mirtilho simples que vamos comer juntos hoje 🙂

Um dos meus blogs preferidos sobre comida é o ‘Cannelle et Vanille’, que tem grandes receitas e excelentes fotografias.
Portanto… há uma semana, quando vi os Lemon,Pistachio and Millet Cakes da autora, estava apenas à espera de uma oportunidade para os fazer.
Aqui está, a minha versão de amêndoas 🙂

Depois do fim-de-semana soalheiro que tivemos, a única coisa em que podia pensar era numa sobremesa óptima e leve.
Alguns morangos do Príncipe Real e aqui está… um final perfeito para um fim-de-semana cheio de sol.

Pizza bread

Usually when I make pizza at home I use to make bigger dough ,the rest of it I use to make this lovely small breads (I use muffins tins).Last time, for topping, I used some mix of seeds and spices friend of my brought me from Israel but you can use your imagination and invent ,you can’t make mistake!!

Vanilla Cookies

Last week I spent some time going through my mother’s recipe book. I found some more great recipes and between them I notice recipe of these vanilla biscuits my grandmother was famous for.

Reading a recipe I almost felt vanilla scent of her house, her house was never without them.

As I use to be a big fan of them, I have feeling my kids will get there also.
Today, as soon as we enter house they asked me to eat ‘mini biscuits’ 🙂



Raspberry Tea Cakes


You know these days when nothing goes good…I had one of them.
Last night I decided to make some Raspberry Tea Cakes for collecting money for centre MIMAR.
First I drop full bowl of raspberry glaze, it was all over the kitchen.
Then when I succeeded to finish them I just needed some of icing sugar, opened my kitchen storage and realised I don’t have any of it….and it was 7:30 in the morning…finally my neighbour saved a cause and I finished them.
Went to the car..no car keys…but…at the end cakes came to their destination and I hope we will collect a lot of money and give our contribution for this centre.

Chocolate cupcakes

Spending days with family for me means spending time around a desk and food.
Meals all together, chatting, coffees, cakes… going out for a drink…all of that.
This time I also spent some time preparing some of my favorites and last night it was with my sister.We decided to made some chocolate cupcakes, mainly for kids…but these cakes were special..mixes with a lot of laughs, talk… full of emotions…we had such a great time preparing them together.

Zagreb

Whenever I go to Zagreb I feel like little kid in the candy shop.
There you can find such a variety of cake shops,coffee bars, that is really hard to decide in which one to enter.And then…when you enter…which cake to choose…well…for me it was really difficult.Luckily I was with my sister so I could try her cake and eat mine :-).

Our first choice was Millennium with great icecream


and then Torte i to with great cakes


Just great!!!!!

Going back home….

My mother, as probably majority of mothers, knows perfectly what are my favorites dishes.Moment I tell her that I am going back home for a visit she starts to plan what is she going to cook and prepare when I am there.

First minute I come on the door ,I have to sit to eat and it is like that until I leave.

And…I love that,because ..there are things that I really miss:

my mother cakes

to go to bakery and don’t know which bread to buy

the world best icecream

…..and a lot more.
I am trying to charge my bateries until the next visit…..
