Food is love (culinary post)/ Hrana je ljubav (kulinarski post)





Often baking is a spur of the moment thing for me. Usually I decide all of the sudden that I'm in mood for preparing cakes and get down to it. That was the case last Sunday. I've made so many cakes (about 2 kg ) that I had more then enough to share with friends and family. Food is there to be shared, food is love ...well, it is if you ask me. That reminds of a story...About a decade ago I moved to Dubrovnik for work and   rented a house with a friend in a small village near Cavtat (a small city near Dubrovik). When we had time me and my roommate would prepare all kinds of dishes. When I made cakes I often took some to the landlady who lived with her family on the floor above us. Later on, my formal company send me to Italy and my parents came to pick up my stuff and pay the rest of rent. My mother was very surprised when the landlady told her about all the cakes I used to prepare. 'I didn't even know my daughter can cook', my surprised mother said. Truth be told, I'm still keeping some of the things I know secret. There should be a bit of mystery in one's life, don't you think?

Na pravljenje kolača često se odlučim u trenutku i odmah na to prionem. Tako je bilo i prošle nedjelje kada sam napravila stvarno puno kolača (oko dva kila), više nego dovoljno za podijeliti sa prijateljima i obitelji....Hrana je stvorena za dijeljenje, hrana je ljubav...pa i je, ako se mene pita. To me podsjetilo na to kada sam se zbog posla prije desetak godina  preselila u Dubrovik i  živjela sa cimericom u malom selu pored Cavtata. U slobodno vrijeme svašta bismo nešto spremale za jelo, a često sam kolače nosila gazdarici koja je sa obitelji živjela kat iznad nas. Kasnije me bivša firma poslala u Italiju, a roditelji su mi došli po stvari i platiti ostatak stanarine. Moja majka je bila jako iznenađena kada joj je žena rekla o svim kolačima koje sam znala pripremati. "Al moja ćer zna kuvat?", zapitala se moja iznenađena majka. Biti ću iskrena, nikad ne otkrivam sve što znam. Uvijek treba biti malo misterije u nečijem životu, zar ne?

  9. They look delicious.x I can totally relate to that, I wouldn't say I love baking cakes but there are days when all of a sudden I want to bake a cake! Most of the times those cakes turn out to be the best ones.x My mum and everyone in my family still believes that I can't cook, even though I've been living on my own for four years right now:) Have a lovely and relaxing weekend dear.x

    1. torte...tu i nisam neki maher, držim se nekolicine, nisam nikad baš neku kompliciranu probala ispeći...ali naravno volim ih jesti:) Meni je muž meštar za pizzu i to mu rado prepuštam, nisam neki ljubitelj pizze brzo mi dosadi, pa je ne volim ni praviti. Mene kuhanje opušta, ali daleko od toga da i ja nekad ne poželim slobodni dan od kužine:)

  16. My grandmother makes similar cakes. Your story makes me giggle because my mother made a similar quote to yours about me and cooking when I was younger, xoxo.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
