  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 some sort of cucumber salad.
  3. 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 whatsoever. And now, the more carbs I have, the more I want...
  4. 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 of us celiac girls (no men allowed! ). And I, too, thought...
  5. 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 of which, do I have stories to tell! But not on a food thread...
  6. 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?
  7. 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 (with the chicken fat, of course! ) Cabbage slaw Homemade...
  8. 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. All gluten-free stuff here is unbelievably costly....
  9. 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! I would be willing to pay quite a lot extra for some things...
  10. Yes, it does. I have not taken the time to check what is in her almond flour blend...have you?
  11. 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. The only ones available are white rice flour and I did see...
  12. Happy Labour Day to my North American friends! Tonight I am making a simple mixed salad with a Dijon and red wine vinaigrette and fresh Balkans feta. Batter for rosemary socca (flatbread) is resting. I will drizzle with local olive oil and sprinkle with...you guessed it...local sea salt. Blackberry...
  13. Thank you! It is nice to be back. We have now had the internet up and running for a consecutive week! Yay!! Colleen, of course... if you would like Croatia pictures, I would be happy to email you some, if I am able to choose from the 873,601,274 we have! Hopefully you are all healthy...
  14. So sorry to hear about those of you suffering from illness. I hope you are feeling better, even at this very minute. Tonight we are having: Zucchini ribbons with roasted garlic and tomatoes Sweet and spicy meatballs Fresh Balkans feta with lashings of Istria olive oil, olives, tomatoes and...
  15. Hello from Croatia! We were without internet for over three weeks (long sordid tale) until now. But, tonight we had fresh octopus, squid and shrimp peka. Peka is both noun and verb and refers to the dish (ingredients) and cooking vessel. Peka is placing potatoes and other vegetables into a heavy...
