Roasted Tomato and Garlic Soup

Friday, September 18, 2020

Homemade roasted tomato basil soup with fresh tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and caramelized onions is my favorite. It's delicious, flavorful and the best on a cold rainy day.
What you will need:
Tomatoes, lots of them
two garlic cloves
1/2 onion
olive oil
salt and pepper
1 cup of vegetable stock
½ teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon vegeta
garlic toast and parmigiano cheese for serving.
How to make it:
Heat oven to 375. In a oven safe dish put tomatoes, garlic and sliced onions. Drizzle olive oil, generously season salt and pepper, bake for 30-40 min.
In a saucepan add roasted vegetables (make sure to push out garlic out of shells), add vegetable stock, dried oregano and vegeta. Bring to boil.
Reduce the heat to low and let sizzle for 10 minutes.
Using an immersion blender, blend soup well.
To serve, garnish with parmesan cheese and garlic croutons, if desired. 
 








OOTD - The Ruffle Midi Skirt

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

This ruffle midi skirt (I worse the set here) has been of my favorite pieces and I can’t wait to transition it to fall. I was drawn to the color and, of course, the ruffle but I was sold by the elastic waist (like who doesn’t its so comfortable). This pretty blue print skirt works well with crop tops and tees but will work well with turtle necks, oversized sweaters and doors for colder days.

OOTD - Wide Leg Pants Outfit

Monday, September 14, 2020

Wide leg pants are a fun pant option for summer, but they can be a little tricky to style. I am a slim or skinny pant style generally but there is somethings so elegant about wide leg pants. I generally pair wide legs pants with a form fitting top but decided to opt out for a sheer lose top.

Krofne (Bosnian Donut)

Friday, September 11, 2020

All over the Balkans krofne are made with slight differences, depending if your are In Bosnia, Montenegro, Serbia or Croatia but the idea is the same - deep dried dough covered in sugar. This recipe works every time, but makes SO MANY krofne.. not that is a problem or anything/
What you need:
4 cups flour
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
3 tablespoons caster sugar
1 cup warm milk 
2 egg
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Zest of one lemon
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Icing sugar for decorating
How to make it:
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the yeast and 1 teaspoon caster sugar in ½ cup (150 ml) warm milk and let it foam for 15 minutes.
In another large bowl, whisk the eggs, remaining caster sugar, oil and vanilla sugar until fluffy.
Add the flour to the yeast mixture and add the lemon zest.
Using the dough hook, start kneading the dough at low speed.
Gradually add the rest of the warm milk. 
Knead for 1 minute and finally add the salt.
Increase the speed of the stand mixer and knead at medium to high speed for 5 minutes.
At this stage, the dough should be sticky but compact and must come off the edges of the bowl.

Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and continue kneading by hand while rolling the dough.
If necessary, add a little flour to obtain a smooth, non-sticky dough.
Cover the dough with a cloth and let it rise for one hour at room temperature and away from drafts.

Cut 2-inch (5 cm) circles with a cookie cutter and place the circles, spaced, each on a circle of floured parchment paper.
Assemble the rest of the dough and form new donuts until all the dough is used.
Let the donuts rise for 15 minutes at room temperature and away from drafts.

Add about 6 cups of oil into a medium-sized deep-frying pan and heat to a temperature of 350 F (170 C).
Slide each circle of dough into the hot oil and fry the donuts on both sides while maintaining the oil at a temperature of 350 F (170 C) until they are golden brown.

Place the fried donuts on paper towels.
Generously sprinkle icing sugar onto the donuts.

OOTD - Animal Instinct

Wednesday, September 9, 2020

There’s no denying that animal print is having a moment, it’s everywhere. While I am print averse a simple top or a sweater paired with any animal print looks so chic. I love this skirt because it so comfortable.

OOTD - Easy Fall Outfit: Jean Shorts + Sweaters

Monday, September 7, 2020

 

One of my favorite Fall outfit combinations: a cozy sweater and jean shorts. I love this time of year, when it’s still warm, but starting to be chilly but still warm enough for bare legs. Pairing a sweater and shorts seems off, but I think the key to the look is finding the right shorts and pairing them with the right type sweater. I find that high waisted mom styles tend to be best, paired with over-sized sweaters.
