I'm back :)

Evo mene natrag nakon 7 magičnih dana provedenih na putu tj. na godišnjem odmoru :) proputovali smo našu obalu od Zadra do Dubovnika sa stajalištima u Međugorju i Mostaru :) smješteni u Podacama svaki dan smo se vozikali i otkrivali nova mjestašca , malo smo se i okupali makar je već rujan i more je malo hladno ali mir i tišina na plaži su bili nevjerojatni :) i vrlo vjerojatno odgovorni za moja crvena leđa od sunca :D

Here I am again, after seven magical days spent on the road (on holiday) :) we traveld our lovly coast from Zadar to Dubrovnik  with additional stops  in Međugorje witch is a  sanctuary in Bosnia and Hercegovina and a nearby town Mostar witch is magical :) we were staying at the house in a small place called Podace and we drived every single day in an other place :) we were also bathing a little bit though its september allready and the sea is a little bit colder but the peace and silence on the beach were amazing and probably responsable for the sunburn i got :)

The begining of the Makarska riviera 


The amazing colors of the sea at a little town Primosten

Very beautiful and unique flowers in Podaca

The magical town in Bosnia and Hercegovina - Mostar

I also cooked something, but that in an other post :)

The beach i got the sunburn :) it was so special, just the sea and the wind, and the both of us :)

And for the end a beautiful sunset at the riviera :)

I kako sam obećala, pravila sam danas Domaći Bounty jer nisam mogla doći na posao sa godišnjeg odmora bez da svojim dragim kolegama malo zasladim život :) u malo drukčijoj okrugloj verziji - i pravljenje njih je odličan način da se riješite stressa :) barem meni :)

As i promised i made again the home made Bounty bars this time little different as cute little balls :) because i couldn't come to work from a holiday without bringing something to sweeten their lives :) and i discover that making and decorating them is a great stress realese :)





Nadam se da sam vam barem malo dočarala ljepote naše obale i da ćete uživati u slikama :)
Uskoro malo više postova sa novim slasticama ali i ponekom slanom poslasticom :)

I hope i managed to show you a little bit of our Croatian coast that many call the most amazing coast in the world and that you enjoy the pictures :)
In the future there will be many more sweet posts with cakes and cupcakes and sometimes also a salty post :)

Do tad..... pozdrav iz Dubrovnika :) (želim natrag)

Until then..... greatings from Dubrovnik (want to go back there)

:) byby :)

Home made Bounty :)

Dugo me nije bilo, dosta stressa na poslu, pakiranje za godišnji (što podrazumijeva brdo pranja i peglanja)  i tolika želja za kolačima a nikako vremena....prije nego odem na godišnji željela sam s vama podijeliti ovaj savršeni recept za Bounty čokoladice koji se po ničemu ne razlikuje od originala, osim što je malo bolji hehe :) recept sam dobila od Vanylice sa Coolinarike a fotke su stare tako da čim uhvatim vremena slažem nove :) 

It took me a while until i managed to make a new post, there is stress at work, packing for my vacation (that considers a lot of washing and ironing)  and a big wish for something sweet but not much time for making it....before i take off i will share a great recipe for home made Bounty bars witch show no difference to the original one, maybe it's just a little bi better. I got the recipe from Vanylica from the Coolinarka and the photos are old but as soon as i'll have some time i'll make them again :)

 

Sastojci :

1 dl slatkog vrhnja
300 g šećera
250 g kokosa

150 g tamne čokolade
80 g margarina

Ingredients: 

1 dl cream
250 g butter with cream flavor
300 g sugar
250 g coconut flour

150 g dark chocolate
80 g butter



Priprema:

1. Šećer i margarin otopiti na srednjoj temperaturi a onda pojačati da provri.

2. Kad provri dodati 250 g kokosa i dobro sjediniti.

3. Manji protvan obložiti masnim papirom za pečenje i izliti smjesu.

4. Staviti u frižider na 2 sata da se stegne.

5. Dasku za rezanje obložiti papirom za pečenje da se ne lijepi kad se bude rezalo. Odvojiti kolač od rubova protvana i prevrnuti na dasku te skinuti papir.

6. Rezati čokoladice u željenom obliku, kod mene su bili kružići, jednom čak i štapići i staviti u hladnjak dok se priprema glazura.

7. Čokoladu i margarin rastopiti na pari.

8. Preliti ih ili umakati u čokoladu te kad se ohlade poslužiti. Ukrasiti po želji.


Preparationes :

1. Melt sugar and butter on a medium heat and then make the heath high so the mixture boils.

2. When it boils add 250 g of coconut flour and mix well.

3. Put baking paper in a smaller square pan and pour it in.

4. Put in the fridge for 2 hours and let it get hard.

5. Prepare the cutting board and put some baking paper on it so it doesn't stick when you cut it. Remove the hard mixture from the pan on the board.

6. Cut the shapes that you like, i made little circles this time, and sticks the other time. Put the shapes in the fridge until you prepare the frosting.

7. Melt the chocolate and butter on a steam bath.

8. Frost, let it cold, decorate and serve as you wish!




I adore them so much....mmmmmmm.......

Obožavam ih......



Prekrasna pjesma Hrvatske pjevačice Martine Vrbos "Ostaješ sam".....današnja inspiracija :)

I da :) prošla sam ispit i sad jedva čekam kraj smijene i putujemooooo :))

Želim vam svima ugodan tjedan, tj. ugodne dane kad mene nema i očekujte brdo finih slastica kad se vratim :)

A beautiful song from a Croatian singer Martina Vrbos called " You stay alone".... My inspiration today :)

And yes, i passed my exam thanks for all crossed fingers, so i'm waiting for my shift to end and we are off to the coast!

Wishing you a great week, and all days that i'm away and be prepared for many new sweets and pictures when i'm back :)

Bon apetit,

Picking plums today :) branje šljiva :)

Nakon noćne smijene i buđenja oko 14:00 sati odlučili smo popodne provesti u voćnjaku i nabrati malo šljiva da ponesemo prijateljima :)  bilo bi više slika da je baterija mobitela potrajala :)

After a night shift and waking up at 2 pm we decided to pick some plums from my garden for our friends :) there woulb be more pictures if the cellphone battery lasted longer :)






My darling picking the fallen plums :)




HAPPY MONDAY (or tuesday) EVERYBODY :)

Plum pie goes wrong (or not?) - Čudna pita od šljiva (ili ne?)

Ovu subotu odlučila sam praviti neki kolač od šljiva pošto doma imao brdo šljiva pa je moj izbor pao na recept objavljen u jednim dnevnim novinama. Recept je izgledao super, normalne namirnice ništa ekstra a rezultat? Grozno.... niti se ispeklo dovoljno dobro, podloga je bila tvrda, teška za rezanje a punjenje su zapravo bile samo šljive i malo šećera, i ukupni dojam nikakav.....trenutno učim i imam neke obaveze pa nemam vremena napravit neke preinake na receptu pa vam trenutno dajem sami slikice kolača koje isto tako nisu nešto jer sam isprobavala drugi fotoaparat...očito subota nije bila in niti za pitu niti za fotke ali barem smo se navečer zabavili na svadbi .... nadam se da će se kroz ovaj tjedan to popraviti :) i brojim još 8 dana do godišnjeg odmora i odlaska u predivnu Makarsku :)

This Saturday I decided to make some kind of a plum cake because at home, in our garden we have a lot plums everywhere so i tried this recipe from our daily newspaper. It looked so easy, the ingredients were very common, everything you probably have at home, and the result? Dreadful. It wasn't baked well, the pie bottom was very dry and hard and thin, it was hard to cut it and the pie filling was basically plums with a little bit of sugar...sooo disappointed ....this week I have exams so i'm learning and working full time so at the end of the week i'll try to perfect the recipe so now i'm just posting the pictures of this  - gone wrong - pie....and the pictures are not so good either because i tried a new camera witch was a little bit heavy to handle...so it wasn't a good Saturday for pie and photos but at least we had a good time at a wedding later that night :) hopping this week it will all change....and i'm counting 8 more days until my vacation on the beautiful Adria coast :)

Plums from my garden


Ready to be baked, allready looks suspicious...

The baked pie, looks dry...but the colors were nice...

The plum let out a little bit of juice but nut much...


Taking picture, trying the camera...

The next Saturday i'm trying again!
Ako imate bilo kakvu ideju kako recept malo poboljšati, dali možda šljive preliti nečime pa da bude sočnije ili nešto molim u komentare :) hvala!

If you have any idea how to improve this recipe please let me now in the comments, maybe to put some mixture over the plum to make it all a little bit softer...

We were here  3 years ago and soo happy getting back there :)
Have fun this week and keep your fingera crossed so i pass my exam :)

Ugodan radni tjedan svima i držite palčeve da prođem ispit!
