“why don’t you write in the blog?”, kept the boy asking me through the whole winter. and i was just making up silly excuses every time he came up with that question. but when recently my gorgeous sister asked me out of the blue “what’s up with the blog? you haven’t posted since ages!”, i was like “yeah, why really?” so right there on the spot i thought myself “people need my blog! i should share more often.”*  * i just imagined this funny picture…Continue Reading “crackers”

it is officially fall. it’s time for more cooking and more tea drinking. i actually like fall, mostly because of its beautiful colors. to celebrate the new season i prepared something tasty and colorful – my favorite pancakes, except this time they’re… purple! i found the recipe here and because i have a soft spot for everything purple, i didn’t wait too long before making it myself. официално вече е есен. време е за повече готвене и повече пиене на чай. всъщност харесвам есента, преди…Continue Reading “purple pancakes”

as it comes to food almost nothing could beat a good homemade traditional dish. like liutenitsa. try to make your own following your grandma recipe and you will never want to buy it again. i actually have never made liutenitsa by myself, but this dip reminded me so much of its taste, so i had to share it. it is just yummy! стане ли въпрос за храна почти нищо не може да обори добрoтo домашно приготвенo традиционнo ястие. като лютеницата например. опитайте да направите сами,…Continue Reading “traditions with a twist”

watermelon smoothie with lemon / динена лимонада ever since i have tried watermelon smoothie after one amazing summer music festival on the beach a couple years ago, i am amazed by the fresh taste it has. this summer i found myself preparing it very often, experimenting with the little special flavors i add like honey, fresh herbs (i’ve tried also adding basil, it turned out really nice) or other fruits. for this one i got the inspiration from a facebook status of a blogger, that…Continue Reading “watermelon”

weekend treats… love them! especially breakfast. this one brings the spirit of my childhood. french toast. when i was a kid my mother and grandma used to make them now and then for breakfast. oh, this golden, mellow, sweet deliciousness! in my family we call it “ggi-ggi-paa-paa” [gee-gee-pah-pah, i guess]. haven’t made french toast myself till now. i tried to make it healthier by using soft rye bread and coconut butter. it’s pretty simple: beat two eggs, roll the bread slices in the eggs and…Continue Reading “ggi-ggi-paa-paa”

lately i found myself looking for simplicity pretty much everywhere i could. wearing no-fuss outfits with clear, simple lines. eating simple meals. not complicating things too much. yep. when you start feeling that life kind of gets too complicated, simplicity is all you want to stick too. напоследък търся простотата почти навсякъде – семпли дрехи с изчистени линии, простчки ястия , ежедневие без излишно усложняване. дам. когато започнеш да мислиш, че животът е сложен, някак подъсзнателно се стремиш към всичко това. recently i bought a…Continue Reading “simple”

eating a plant-based diet with fresh, real foods – veggies and fruits, nuts and seeds, legumes and very little dairy is probably one of the best things you could do for your body. the cleanness in its every dimension is wonderful. each spring i found myself wanting to be somehow new and clean. i start from my very own home – my body. cleaning my body and mind. trying to make the right choices as it comes to food. this means eating A LOT of…Continue Reading “clean and green”
