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).

Zucchini taquitos

Mexican food is certainly one of my favourites. I never liked vegetables before I tried mexican way of cooking. I know it’s not really mexican what we eat, but I never tried the real deal, so this will do for me. I hope my (yes I can officially say it now!) brother’s in law sister and her husband move here from the States and open real Mexican restaurant 🙂 But until then, I give you my version of taquitos.

Mehiška hrana je gotovo ena mojih najljubših. Nikoli mi ni bila všeč zelenjava, dokler nisem poskusila mehiškega načina kuhanja. Vem, da to kar jemo, ni prava mehiška kuhinja, ampak nikoli še nisem poskusila prave, tako da bo ta kar dobra. Upam, da se sestra mojega svaka (zdaj uradno) in njen mož preselita sem iz Amerike in odpreta pravo mehiško restavracijo:) Ampak do takrat, je tukaj moj različica taquitosov.

Quick No Knead Bread

I never liked baking bread. It never turned out fluffy and airy, so I rather bought it. But when I was making a Czech dinner I wanted to make home made bread, so I could show my family the whole Czech experience. When I was browsing through internet I came across this recipe. It is easy and you don’t need to mess up the whole kitchen to make it. And the taste is surprising, because of the honey used.

Nikoli nisem rada pekla domačega kruha. Nikoli ni uspel puhast in zračen, zato sem ga rajši kupila. Toda, ko sem za družino hotela pripraviti češko večerjo, sem želela narediti domač kruh, za popolno doživetje. Ko sem brskala po internetu sem naletela na ta recept. Je zelo enostaven in za pripravo ni potrebno razmetati celotne kuhinje. Sam okus pa je presenetljiv, zaradi uporabe medu.

Garlic soup

I spent the holidays in Slovak and Czech Republic, more accurate we went on a road trip. From Slovenia to Vienna, Bratislava, Mikulov, Brno, Telč, Česke Budejovice, Česky Krumlov and back to Slovenia. I took a photograph of everything we ate, but they have such bad lightning in restaurants, so they are a bit blurry and underexposed. They eat a lot of meat so a vegetarian is often left hungry, not to mention if you are vegan. They put cheese on everything! What I ate almost every day is garlic soup or česneková polévka.

Božične in novoletne praznike sem preživela na Slovaškem in Češkem, bolj natančno, odpravili smo se se na road trip. Iz Slovenije na Dunaj, v Bratislavo, Mikulov, Brno, Telč, Česke Budejovice, Česky Krumlov in nazaj v Slovenijo. Fotografirala sem vse, kar smo jedli, ampak je bila v restavracijah tako slaba razsvetljava, da so fotografije bolj slabe. Jedo veliko mesa, tako da vegetarijanci pogosto ostanejo lačni, kaj šele, če si vegan. Sir dajo na čisto vse! Tako da sem skoraj vsak dan jedla česnovo juho ali česneková polévka.
