Lemon bars

My love for lemon is I believe now far-known. As many make and eat all made from chocolate, so I do with lemon. Lemon curd, i.e. lemon cream is quite challenging to make, but in this recipe I’ve simplified it so it cannot fail you. These bars are very refreshing and excellent for these spring days with summer temperatures. Easy to make and a very refreshing dessert. Preparation time: 30 minutes Ingredients: Base: – 85 g of ground almonds – 50 g of flour – 1 tablespoons of coconut – 25 g of coconut oil – 40 g of honey...

The healthiest salads

Since childhood we are taught that every salad is healthy and that we should digest as much greenery in our body as possible. And that’s all true.

However, this is the topic of some other text. This time I did a research on which of the green salads are the healthiest, have the highest nutritional value and why there...

Arduana’s Bundt Cake

Last month I started with a new section: Guest Chef Recipe. Ena’s Choco pralines were just the right bombastic announcement. In the meantime, I have made the Easter Bundt Cake when a minor disaster with the mold has occurred. When I saw this bundt cake at dear Arduana’s blog, I decided to give the mold a second chance, at the same time I am a big fan of bundt cakes. In the original recipe, the bundt cake differs only because instead of pumpkin seeds, Arduana used pistachio. And I had leftover pumpkins seeds from the Chocolate Tahini Bites, so I decided to use it. I...

Gastro review: Ferdinand dumplings, Belgrade

I know that as soon as you’ve seen the cover photo, you knew about what I’m going to write. We were recently in Belgrade and I shared a photo of Nutella dumpling on Instagram, which caused an overall enthusiasm. Certainly it cannot be measured with our enjoyment while we tried the very dumpling. Since we got there early in the morning, we waited for the rest of the dumplings in the photo to be made, so we could pack them in the box and bring it to Sarajevo. On the photo there are dumplings with almonds, pistachios, nuts, plums, blackberries,...

Chocolate Tahini Bites

Have you already made or eaten tahini paste? When I made St. Patrick’s Day Muffins, I used black sesame. I got left with a lot of black sesame, so I was thinking how to use it. From black sesame I made tahini paste, and then these energy bites. Easy to make, you eat them in two bites and try to eat only one. Preparation time: 30 minutes Ingredients: Tahini paste 200 g black sesame 4 tablespoons of olive oil Bites 80 g grinded hazelnuts 4 dates 100 g tahini paste (1/3 cup) 4 tablespoons of honey 3/4 teaspoon of salt...
