So here we are at the end of September and sure enough, on the East Coast of the U.S., pumpkin everything is around us. From the famous Starbucks pumpkin latte (have never tried it, sounds too sweet for my taste), to pumpkin spice yogurt, cookies and ever beer, not to mention decorations like this one below!

It has been a while since I have shared a recipe. Lately, I have not had that much time to think meals through and document all recipes worth sharing. But stay put – plenty more mouth-watering recipes will be coming in the future. Once a week, I make a veggie curry, a favorite during these colder days.

Serbian food is all about winter comfort, although some consume it even when it is not that cold outside. Our winter break was the perfect time to indulge in warm, tasty bites typically served in Serbian traditional restaurants called “kafana“.

One of the so called “food heaven” moments happens when we have this amazing pasta for lunch or dinner. It just invokes this “happy tummy” feeling, especially if consumed with a glass of good Cabernet.

Going back to work after taking almost a year-long break feels great. However, I knew I had to come up with a strategy that would still ensure that we all eat some good quality, home cooked food. For instance, my kids are not fans of school cafeteria food and prefer home packed lunches. I, myself would always rather eat a dish I prepared then a restaurant or cafeteria meal (unless we are talking about a really nice restaurant). Not only is it usually more healthy, but it also saves some $$$. Continue reading
