Clermont-Ferrand in 48 hours

Welcome to Clermont-Ferrand, the city which is, I guess, unknown to many of you. At least I can say that when I mention its name French people look at me in a strange way and can’t believe I once lived there and non French people usually never heard of it. Some time ago I saw a video Clermont-Ferrand in 48 hours made by the Tourist Organization of the city and I felt nostalgic. It’s been almost 7 years since I left this city where I lived for a year. This video reminded me of the days spent in Lecoq Garden where…

Chocolate Easter eggs

Happy Easter! Time flies so fast and Easter is already here although it seems like Christmas was only yesterday. Like during Christmas, everything is full of decoration, just this time with Easter decoration like yellow chicks, Easter bunnies and chocolate eggs that I just couldn’t resist and had to buy some of it for my home. I bought some decorations for the eggs that look like different animals and you just have to stick animals’ ears, nose and eyes to the eggs. Pretty childish, I know, but the eggs look so sweet, as you can see in the photo below. I have to admit this was the…

Spring lemonade with strawberries

Spring is finally here. I know very well that waiting for weekend, vacations, spring or summer is always a waste of time and life and that we should embrace every moment and seize the day, but I can’t control the happiness I feel when I see the blue sky, white flowers and feel the mild wind on my face. So, I’m sorry for wasting my life waiting, but dear spring, I missed you so much, thank you for coming! Spring brings us lots of strawberries that I love so much so I’m trying to use them in every recipe I can. I…

A perfect mix: Greek yogurt, granola, overnight oats and hazelnut butter

I have to admit one thing. Last couple of months I prepared only one breakfast every day. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not creative, or because I’m lazy in the morning or just because this breakfast is so perfect so there is no need to change it. I’m talking about the layered breakfast I already shared one recipe for. You can change and combine the ingredients as you wish or with what you find in your fridge. Maybe I am creative after all 🙂 Normally I put Greek yogurt as the first layer, then homemade granola (you can also…

Italian Tiramisu, so creamy and irresistible

I’ve always loved Italy. Somehow, every time I think about that country, my heart starts beating faster and I’m ready to jump into the first plane and go to any of its cities, drink a coffee in some Italian bar and wander through unknown streets. There is something in that language that sounds like a song, in the air, in their chaos, pizzas, pastas and creamy and irresistible desserts. When I think of Italy, everything starts to smell like coffee, the true Italian coffee, incomparable to any other. I always loved coffee, not the black one, but coffee with a lot of milk,…

Homemade Raffaello inspired balls

I don’t know if anyone remembers an old Raffaello commercial with a ballerina dancing in a theatre and, at the end of the show, her boyfriend comes and gives her a box of Raffaello. I clearly remember Raffaello as one of the first sweets we were able to buy in Serbia after the crisis in the 90s and, even though I didn’t like coconut that much, I loved the cream it was filled with and the whole almonds inside. And to me as a child that video looked completely magical and that’s why I fell in love with the sweets.  Raffaello was very popular in…

Amsterdam from my perspective

More tan 100 km of canals surrounding the city center shaping it like a horse shoe, buildings that look like Gingerbread cookies, tall and narrow with huge windows, hundreds of bykers that pass you by not caring about running you over, romantic atmosphere, smell of marihuana, cloudy sky and thousands of tourists, Amsterdam, the beautiful city in the North-West of Europe is all that. Relaxed Dutch people will let you peek into their homes as no one seems to care about curtains, you’ll understand that bicycles always come first because you’ll be more scared of them than of cars, you’ll see lots of…

Healthier version of Jaffa cakes

It’s been a long time since I last ate Jaffa cakes, actually I don’t even remember the last time. But I still remember the taste of the orange jelly between the cookie and the chocolate, the part I saved to eat last. Yes, I imagine you all know what I’m talking about, we all did it as kids 🙂 I used to love Jaffa cakes so much but somehow I completely forgot about them until couple of days ago when I decided to make its healthier version. I have this urge to make healthier versions of cakes I once loved and they…
