Potato soup with homemade dumplings is a reminder of my childhood because it was one of the few dishes that I loved. I still love it, especially because it can be cooked quickly. For better taste, I add sour cream. In addition to the simplicity of this soup, the advantage are the modest groceries that…

Juha od krumpira s domaćim knedlama

Juha od krumpira s domaćim knedlama je moj podsjetnik na djetinjstvo, jer je bila među malobrojnim jelima koje sam voljela. Volim je još uvijek, pogotovo zato jer se može brzo skuhati, a za puniji okus joj dodajem i kiselo vrhnje. Osim jednostavnosti i brzine, prednost juhe od krumpira s domaćim knedlama je ta što sadrži…

Kroštule

Recept za Kroštule dobila sam od prijateljice s otoka Krka, a naziv originalnog recepta njezine mame je Kroštuli. Vidjela sam da postoje i hrskave Kroštule koje bih isto voljela probati, no ove su mekane, jer se u njih stavlja prašak za pecivo pa narastu za vrijeme prženja. Iako izgled ovih Kroštula podsjeća na Poderane gaće…
