My version of chicken pot pie

This is my own invention I must say and the only reason  I am calling it a pot pie is because it is in a pot and it has a crust 😀 It is also one of my most delicious inventions. The good thing is that you can make it in any quantity you like…

French omelette and the best toast

French cooking and recipes have generated some of the most exquisite tasting dishes in the world. While the Italians cook for pleasure and don’t put too much worry in it, sometimes I feel that with french recipes you are constantly expected to deliver exact quantities to the gram, an exact amount of stirs or temperature…

Egg salad sandwich

One of the things that can make the work day more pleasant is lunch. Not only because it goes hand in hand with a break, but because of the oportunity of bringing something delicious and home made into the office, which will definitely bring your energy and positive outlook back. Here is an office lunch…

Cream cheese frosted cupcakes

Cupcakes are something we all love. I do not believe that I will ever meet a person who will tell me “I don’t like cupcakes”, it is like saying “Puppies aren’t adorable”! So once last month, when I was just recovering from some bad cold that put me in bed for couple of days I…

Homemade sushi

The sushi is one of those things that look really hard to make, but when you start doing it it turns out it is a real pleasure! The traditional Japanese sushi consists of rice (or shari) with vinegar, sugar and salt and raw fish. In time, however, it evolves and becomes incredibly diverse meal everywhere…

Caramel-walnut pie

Caramel is my enemy. I don’t know if it is because it scares me or because I don’t understand it. I think it is the latter. If I see a recipe that includes caramel, i know there will an extremely stressful moment in the cooking process, during which I will ask myself: Why am I…

Classic Bruschetta

I have been to Italy once, and that was enough to fall in love with the place, the people, and most importantly – the food. It is really hard not to love Italian food. It is simple, it is amazingly delicious and contains enormous amounts of heart and soul. I have always thought that bruschetta…

Berlin

An eventful place Berlin is. You can feel many different things when walking the streets of the German capital. The things I felt the most were hospitality and the spirit of tradition and togetherness. Berlin was not in my bucket list if I have to be completely honest, but this is one of these cases…

Villa Rosiche – the place to fall in love

If you asked me 5 years ago, I would tell you, the place to fall in love is positively and only New York. However… If someone asked me “What is better than New York?” my answer would be –  a bakery where you can get lost in a bite of cake or dessert, where everything…

The corporate culture and its ups and downs

Working in a big company has always had its pros and cons I think. And while the pros are something we cannot disregard, the cons are also not worth turning our backs on. What am I talking about?  What pros and cons, it is just a job that needs to be done in order for…

Rome

Me and my cousin have a tradition. Once or twice a year we arrange a trip to somewhere neither of us has been before and we spend 4-5 days walking around, sight seeing and being exhausted walking 25-30 kilometers a day (because we have an unspoken rule not to use any sort of transport during…

My first trip to London

Back in April this year, me and my significant other arranged a four day trip to the UK. This being both of our first time in London, it is safe to say we had a list of (more than) 50 places we wanted to visit, it is also safe to say we barely managed to…

My Day-off extravaganza tomato sauce spaghetti

Once upon a time, when I would go to school and that was were my responsibilities ended, I would have half a day to my own easily. During that time, because of my love for pasta (of any sort), I learnt how to make the best tomato sauce to go with spaghetti and I would…

Angelico’s portobello mushroom sandwiches

During all my visits in Washington DC there was always a place where I loved to eat. Sometimes once per visit, and sometimes almost every day depending on how long I’d stay. My favorite thing there was the portobello sandwich which is entirely meatless, but has the amazingness of the best steak sandwich you’ve ever…

Vietnamese Summer Rolls

Months ago I was out shopping for groceries and I saw a pack or rice paper. I said to myself “I can do something awesome with this! “. So here I am, after watching maybe a thousand videos about how to make these rolls I found out there is no “classic recipe” in this area,…
