Salt Cured Egg Yolks

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

If you love eggs, here is something that will rock your world! I'm one of those people who could eat eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner - in all shapes and forms. They are easy to make, very nutritious and incredibly satisfying too.

Anyway, a few weeks ago Balazs and I went out for dinner and I had pasta with grated salt cured egg yolk that elevated a rather simple dish to an incredible level of richness. So, ever since that night I’ve been totally intrigued by those little suckers.

Supposedly besides adding a great texture to different dishes like avocado toasts, salads, pastas or fried rice, they are actually very easy to make at home too. There are a few different techniques, from basic to a bit more time taking, but regardless of the way, the end result will blow your socks off!

P.S: Fancy more?
P.P.S: Plus, 15 nifty food tricks that will blow your mind!

Skirt Crush




Uh-oh, till last night the desire to wear a metallic gold skirt have never crossed my mind, but then around midnight I spotted Darja’s recent go-to uniform and here we are! Oh boy, this must be one of the most lust-worthy looks I’ve seen in a while - a daring yet feminine gold pleated midi skirt worn with a cool leather jacket, tomboyish loafers and a simple white tee to perfection!

But the question is, would you be brave enough to sport it?

P.S: When I grow up...
P.P.S: Turn your back on me.

Food Stamps

Tuesday, May 24, 2016







Ingenious! Lisa Sorgini is a brilliant Australian photographer, who cleverly created this rather unique series of somewhat accidental collages featuring old National Geographic magazines and food from her own kitchen. I love the cheeky undertone, the playful vibe and the implied meaning of every single of those pairings.

Which one is your favourite?

P.S: Pop!
P.P.S: Plus, a bit of this, a dash of that and a whole lot of those.

Rose petal & cardamom kulfi




Since the weather has been pretty great lately (with the exception of this morning's rain), I’ve been making all sorts of popsicles and frozen goodies to indulge in. One of my favourites is Reza Mahammad’s rose petal and cardamom kulfi aka traditional Indian ice cream that does not contain any eggs. Have you tried it?

It’s one of the creamiest and richest mixes I’ve ever made and probably my favourite as well - especially when you add that extra crunchy texture of crushed pistachios on top. Here is the recipe if you're planning a dessert for this upcoming Holiday weekend. It's easy and delicious, while looking incredibly impressive too!

P.S: The perfect sore throat popsicle.
P.P.S: Plus, a few more java-licious popsicles.

Driving through Iceland



Iceland is one of the top spots on my travel wish list and photos like this fuel the desire to visit it even more so!

About 18 months ago, Michalina Okreglicka and her husband packed up their entire life and moved to Iceland. Instead of taking a plane, they filled up their trusty car and hit the road hoping for a little adventure. While driving, Michalina realized how uniquely beautiful, calming, almost therapeutic, and ever changing the Icelandic landscape is, so she started to capture it for memory, which quickly became her favourite way to take photos.

Blimey, just looking at those images makes me feel like I’m in that car with her, taking in that raw beauty, one turn at a time.

P.S: Remember this?
P.P.S: Plus the most mesmerizing ice cave, ever!
