The best Vegas treat was at a place called Lobster me.


Great Pizza in Victoria BC

14 Jun

This pizza is absolutely amazing! It’s a fig and prosciutto with a chiffonade of basil. Where can you find it, you ask? At the Beachhouse restaurant. The flavour is amazing with the slight sweetness of the dried black mission fig and a drizzle of balsamic creme.  We ordered three pizzas today they were fabulous!

Koi Restaurant in Vegas

The best fish dinner I ever had was at the Koi restaurant in Vegas at the Planet Hollywood Hotel. Brittany Spears orders 4 Hibachi fusions on occasion from this restaurant. She lives in one of the suites currently while performing her concerts. Other celebrities that visited here were J-Lo and more!

The dish on the left is a Miso infused Black Cod with Wild mushrooms and asparagus. There was also a superior miso reduction on the side! The dish on the right was salmon with  a miso glaze with morel mushrooms.

Roast Pork from the Spit

Croatians love roast pork from the spit. My family and I enjoyed this delicacy at a recent Croatian church luncheon.

Good Friday Lunch

19 Apr

Baba Marija has the best Good Friday Lunch every year. This year she cooked for 14 people! She made prawns, breaded sole and ustipke (a popular Croatian dessert like a donut hole).

Everyone loves her clam chowder! It is in the large pot in the photo below.  It was the first to be eaten! So it was hard to get a photo of it since we were all hungry! Maybe next year!


Food Product Review

14 Mar

I received this box full of cookies in the mail the other day from Queen B Kitchen! Inside the box there four flavours of gluten-free dairy free and Non-GMO and whole-grain cookies!

The flavours are double chocolate, chocolate chip, lemon coconut, and orange pumpkin seed.  My favourite is the chocolate chip and the lemon coconut but this is my taste, which one is your favorite? I recommend these cookies because they are crispy and delicious.


A Salad Made in Croatia

9 Mar

We stopped in a town called Krapina, famous for its Roman Baths. In this small town, we discovered a nice restaurant near the museum where the neanderthals are displayed. After enjoying this lovely salad, wine and chicken, we went to explore the caves, a short climb from the restaurant. We stood in the caves and pretended we were back in time and wondered what it was like for the cave dwellers.

A Date for Dessert

20 Jan

Date Nut Bar Cake  with drizzled Bernard Callebaut Chocolate and Rosca De Reyes Ring Cake with Dates

The date nut bar cake was enjoyed  by my family. My son Jure is cutting out sugar from his diet so this inspired me to create a recipe where there was mostly natural sugar. The third photo  of the Rosca de Reyes Cake was made by my friend Male  to her house for a lovely coffee and other goodies to share in the celebration of this wonderful Mexican tradition. The celebration involves finding a baby Jesus in the cake. If you find the baby jesus then you need to host a party. Well I found the baby Jesus and now I’m getting ready to celebrate the epithany.
