We have moved!

Yes, I finally made the decision to move my blog! You can find it here.

Res je, končno sem se odločila, da prestavim blog! Najdeš ga tukaj.

Feta Cheese in Olive Oil

I am a big cheese lover and I like to know what I am eating. So when I bought Feta in Olive Oil I loved it, but wasn’t sure what was in it. So I decide to do it myself – to save money and make it just as I like it. Another thing I decided is to move my blog. I am not sure when I will do it, for now I am only reposting there. I am doing this, because there I will have more options with posts and advertising my blog. What do you think? Which one do you like more?

 

Sem velika ljubiteljica sira in rada vem kaj pojem. In ko sem kupila feto v olivnem olju, sem se zaljubila, vendar nisem bila sigurna, kaj je notri. Zato sem se odločila, da jo naredim sama  – da privarčujem in jo naredim točno tako, kot mi je všeč. Še ena stvar, za katero sem se odločila, je, da prestavim blog. Nisem sigurna kdaj, za enkrat samo še enkrat objavljam vse objave tam. To delam zato, ker imam tam veliko več možnosti za objave in oglaševanje bloga. Kaj ti misliš? Kateri ti je bolj všeč?

#1 No more plastic bags.

Another post before posting a recipe. Today I will have enough time to cook properly and photograph in great light conditions. This week was just another busy week at school and work. So if you would like to know how we eliminated plastic bags, please continue reading!

#1 Nič več plastičnih vrečk

Še ena objava pred novim receptom. Danes bom imela dovolj časa za pravo kuhanje in fotografiranje v super svetlobnih pogojih. Ta teden je bil še en naporen teden v šoli in službi. Če želiš vedeti kako sva se znebila plastičnih vrečk, prosim nadaljuj z branjem.

The Zero Waste Home

I found The Zero Waste Home blog a few days ago. The Johnson family have lived zero waste life since 2008. I belive anyone can and should minimize the amount of trash we produce every day. And this blog have inspired me to take action and try to make our home zero waste. I was lucky that my boyfriend thinks it is a great idea and is keen on helping me. I would like to encourage every visitor to go visit Zero Waste Home blog and be inspired to change his/hers lifestyle.

Waste the Johnsons collected in one year! / Smeti, ki so jih Johnsonovi zbrali v enem letu!

[vir]

Pred nekaj dnevi sem našla The Zero Waste Home blog. Družina Johnson živi življenje brez smeti že od leta 2008. Mislim, da vsak lahko in bi tudi moral minimalizirati količino smeti, ki jo ustvarimo vsak dan. Omenjeni blog me je navdušil nad idejo in odločila sem se, da poskusim tudi za naju ustvariti dom brez smeti. Vesela sem, da se moj fant strinja z mano in je pripravljen pomagati. Rada bi vse moje bralce spodbudila k obisku Zero Waste Home bloga, da jih ta inspirira, da tako kot midva, spremenijo svoj življenski slog.

February

This month is a very busy one for me. It all actually starts in January with my younger sister’s birthday, followed by my own, then my aunt’s, my cousin’s wife’s, my cousin’s, my mother’s, my mother’s in law (to be), my sister’s in law (to be), my grandad’s and finally my brother’s in law (at leat this year since he is born on 29th of February). Not to mention I just got a new job, the school started again and I’m still working as a make up artist as much as possible (this is after all what I want to do in my life). This is why today I am posting pictures of what I have been doing for the past week. No recipe this time.

Februar je zame zelo naporen mesec. Vse skupaj se začne že januarja z rojstnim dnem moje mlajše sestre, sledi moj, nato od moje tete, od bratranca žene,  od moje mami, bratranca, od fantove mami in sestre, od mojega deda in na koncu še od sestrinega moža (vsaj letos je tako, saj ima rojstni dan 29. febrauarja). Poleg tega sem dobila novo študentsko delo, začela so se predavanja na faksu in poskušam čimveč delati na področju ličenja (to je konec koncev stvar, ki jo želim početi v življenju). In zato danes v tej objavi le nekaj slik, kaj sem počela zadnji teden. Tokrat brez receptov.

Lavender Cookies

This has been an amazing week! My first submission to FoodGawker was approved and then two to Dessertstalking and one to Photograzing. Views per day jumped so high I’m near to 1500 clicks to my blog (remember two weeks ago it was 500?). And I have become obsessed with the quality of my photos, not just the quality of the recipes. That is way it took me so long to post something. I’m just not pleased with everything I make and I try and try again, until I have something I am proud of. And I finally made it. So here are amazingly tasting Lavender Cookies!

p.s. Do you think I did a good job?

Za mano je neverjetn teden! Moja prva predloga/prijava na FoodGawker je bila sprejeta in nato dve na Dessertstalking inše ena na Photograzing. Dnevni ogledi bloga so poskočili tako visoko, da sem sedaj blizu 1500 klikov na blog (pred štirinajstimi dnevi sem bila šele pri 500!). In postala sem presej obsedena s kavliteto fotografij, ne le kvaliteto receptov, in zato je trajalo tako dolgo do nove objave. Nisem več zadovoljna z vsem kar naredim in se zato trudim in trudim, dokler ne dobim nekaj, na kar sem ponosna. In končno mi je uspelo. Tako, da vam predstavljam Piškotke s sivko!

p.s. Se ti zdi, da mi je uspelo?

Valentine’s Day Mousse

Valentine’s Day is coming very soon now. I’m not a big fan of this day, but still I like to do something to show my M. how much I love him. He won’t be getting this dessert, because he reads this blog (at least he says so), I still have to think of something for him. But for those who don’t know how to surprise their loved ones, here is a yummy delicious recipe for Vegan Raw Raspberry Mousse.

Valentinovo so zelo hitro približuje. Čeprav nisem velika oboževalka tega praznika, vseeno rada naredim nekaj, da pokažem M. kako močno ga ljubim. Ne bo dobile te sladice, ker bere blog (vsaj pravi tako), zanj se moram še nekaj domisliti. Ampak za tiste, ki ne veste kako presenetiti svoje ljubljene, poiskusite s temle receptom za vegansko presno malinino kremo.

Birthday cake for my sister

My little sister celebrated her birthday a few days ago (actually now we are the same age for 5 days, but I can still call her that). My present to her was a cake. She is a huge fan of chocolate and since the last cake I baked turned out so delicious, I had to make it again. This time without the mint, because she doesn’t like it. So this cake was made with the same recipe, only the chocolate is normal cooking chocolate. And this time I decided to do some ganache. To read more about it click on read more (captain obvious).

Moja mlajša sestrica je pred nekaj dnevi praznovala rojstni dan (sicer sva trenutno enako stari za 5 dni, ampak jo vseeno lahko tako kličem). Moje darilo zanjo je bila torta. In ker je velika oboževalka čokolade in ker je moj prejšnji podvig s pečenjem torte tako dobro uspel, sem jo morala naresti še enkrat. Tokrat brez mentola, ker ne mara okusa. Uporabila sem enak recept, le čokolada je bila brez mentola, navadna jedilna čokolada. In tokrat sem se odločila še za preliv. O katerem pa izveš več, če klikneš spodaj read more.

Double Chocolate Sour Cream Cake

Today is a National Chocolate Cake Day! So I wish you all some cake eating! I baked this cake two days ago, not knowing that such a great holiday is coming.🙂 It was simply made because I celebrated 500 clicks on my blog. For which I wanted to thank you, my lovely readers! So I give you Double Chocolate Sour Cream Cake with a twist!

Danes je Dan čokoladne torte! (vsaj tako pravijo) Torej, želim vsem vam vsaj košček! To torto sem pekla pred dvema dnevoma, ne vedoč, da je prihaja velik praznik.🙂 Bilo je preprosto zato, ker sem praznovala 500 klikov na moj blog. Za kar sem se hotela zahvaliti vam, moja ljubi bralci! Zato vam dajem Dvojno čokoladno torto s kislo smetano in presenečenjem!

Oven baked potato fries with scallion and sour cream

I was sitting on a train heading home from audition for opera (no, I’m not a singer and I’m not a musician🙂 can you guess what I am?). I was starving. And a half hour drive is a perfect time to think about food! So I came up with this recipe. It is similar to something I ate in Slovak Republic, something with potatoes, tin foil, sour cream and some spices. But mine turned out to be way better (not that I would want to brag).

V pečici pečen krompir z maldo čebulico in kislo smetano

Sedela sem na vlaku in se peljala domov iz avdicije za opero (ne, nisem pevka, tudi del orkestra ne🙂 lahko kdo ugotovi, kaj sem?). Bila sem sestradana. In tiste pol ure do moje postaje, je idealen čas za razmišljanje o hrani! In tako sem se domislila tega recepta. Je zelo podoben nečemu, kar sem jedla na Slovaškem, nekaj s kropirjem, folijo, kislo smetano in nekimi začimbami. Ampak moja verzija se je izkazala za veliko boljšo (ne da bi se hotela hvaliti).
