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.

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
