  1. Simple green salad with fresh Balkans feta cheese and local capers. I am making a sort of Mediterranean vinaigrette. This afternoon I made Parmesan and garlic biscuits which will go nicely with the salad.
  2. I have a wicked craving for chile con carne so am making a big old pot of it. Right now. It will pair perfectly with bay-infused Jasmine rice and homemade garlic cheese biscuits. This is our high-carb cheat night. Will probably make...
  3. Good morning! Thank you so very much for your love and concern. We are indeed just fine. Our house did flood once a few weeks ago and we are having more trouble with leaks and seeping through the floors but nothing like others are going...
  4. Ever since coming to Croatia in May, we have sort of fallen from the low-carb lifestyle a bit and I can really feel it. Strangely, we have not gained any weight but I crave carbs as I used to...when I was doing my best, I had no cravings...

    What's For Breakfast Today?

    This morning I had toasted homemade sorghum bread with homemade blackberry jam on one piece and local chestnut honey on the other. Mmmmm!!!
  6. Tsk, tsk. You girls are very, very naughty. Lisa, I forgot to email you pictures. I would love to add you to the living in Croatia emails. There is soooooooooo much to catch up on and tell. Perhaps I should start emailing a group...
  7. Irish, for some reason I am unable to reply to specific posts...strange. No idea why but noticed it happening perhaps a week or two ago. But you simply MUST come, it is not optional. Clothes are. It is Europe, after all. Speaking...
  8. Until four months ago I lived in Alberta and can empathize with you and your plight. Waiting is always difficult, especially in Canada, where waits are many months long and feeling like an eternity.. The longest wait I endured was 18 months...
  9. Lisa, thanks for your willingness to sacrifice luggage space for me! Clothes shopping here and in Slovenia and Italy is very good...you and I are really going to enjoy ourselves. How big are your suitcases?
  10. Another gorgeous, bright and hot day here in Croatia. Yesterday I made the following so today is encores: Herb butter roast whole chicken (they actually look like chickens here with beautiful yellow skin and fat) Roast potatoes...
  11. Sorry, I was confusing...almond meal is impossible to find here (though I did find it in Italy but it said it contained wheat!) and almonds themselves are those prices I quoted above. Strange, as almonds are grown here! But most are exported...
  12. Ah...I got a bit lazy. If only I could find some almond meal or at least almonds that cost less than 5 euros for 125 g! Many recipes require 2+ cups of it which would be about the equivalent of about $15+ USD for the almond flour alone...
  13. Yes, it does. I have not taken the time to check what is in her almond flour blend...have you?
  14. Ruth, strangely enough I found the same recipe last night...and cannot wait to try it! These rolls really do look light and fluffy. Trouble is, here in Croatia many ingredients are impossible to find, including most flours and starches...

    Eating Out Overseas

    I live in CroatIia and while it is a gourmand's dream, if you get off the beaten path, be prepared for blank stares. But most are great at accommodating as there are often naturally gluten-free options. Clarify cross contamination issues...
