Every Sunday Joe and I eat breakfast together. Mostly it's him preparing the meal as I am so NOT-a-morning person. But when a miracle happens and I'm fully awake to be able to cook, I make pancakes. Once I was reading a cook book I had on my bookshelf for years (!) and found this apple pancakes recipe.

October is here so I figured out it's just about the right time for some fall decor ideas. Are you guys ready for one of my small DIY projects? 

Living in a rental apartment often means you are limited to decorating only inside. This was the case for me ever since I moved into an apartment in a multi-family house. I really wanted to add some touches to the outside but the only thing I could work with was the door wreath. I spent hours on pinterest looking for some ideas until I figur...

My go-to fall outfit was featured on Simple Moments Stick today! If you're looking for fall outfit ideas make sure to check this post with over 25 bloggers sharing their fall wardrobe inspirations.

Unfortunately for some of us - the summer is over, at least here in Boston. If that's the case where you live, you've probably started thinking of new outfit ideas for the coming season. I loved that during summer all I needed was a pair of shorts, nice top, and flip-flops. Or...

Few months ago I started a blog series about living abroad. Those of you who've tried it already know how great it can be, traveling to new places, getting to know new culture, languages, and people. In the first part I've shared how it all began for me. Today in the second part I will write more about the things and moments I enjoy most about traveling and living abroad.

Discovering new places? Don't I have anything new to say? This one is so obvious! Once you start...

Since June 2016 the summer around here was totally different then ever before. During my many months of living in Boston, every day after work I was home alone, sometimes bored, sometimes busy, always trying to do something useful with my long evenings. It worked this way until my Joe changed his job. Free time now equals so much more then just sitting at home by myself! Thanks to these new circumstances we had a wonderful summer and really enjoyed the time we spent together.

Today's recipe is a simple vegetarian lunch option with very easy preparation. Zucchini fritters.

I usually start thinking of this recipe when I notice the zucchini in my fridge have been lying there for quite some time now and could use some meal participation. I know I shouldn't have food in my fridge which is not assigned to a meal (why would I buy the zucchini if they were not on the list?). But it happens because I'm only human and do exercise impulsive buying from time to time.

Good thing abou...

I'm pretty sure everyone of us has been there - trying to lower your grocery bill. At the end of the month you're looking at your grocery spendings and you're wondering if you've been feeding the entire high school football team. How else could you explain the insane amount of money you spent on food?

The first step in cutting your grocery bill is the hardest one. Until now you've been telling yourself that it's imposible to spend any less money on food. You persuaded yourself that you're shopping...

This weekend I found and tried an amazing recipe for an avocado spread. Even though I'm a fan of avocados and I know how healthy they are, I never used them in recipes. Avocados were not very usual to see when I was growing up and I tried them for the very first time only year or two ago. I've liked them ever since but only ate them sliced on a buttered bread. Nothing fancy and worth sharing, I know.

Then I found this totally simple recipe and I dare to say I'm not going to eat sliced avocados...

I've been making homemade turnovers for some time now, usually simple triangle shapes, but I wanted to make something special for Valentine's Day this year and made them in the shape of heart. However the problem of this shape are leftovers. So I took the small leftover piece of puff pastry dough, put a little filling inside and closed it on the top. I didn't expect much but it turned out perfect.

That was the time when I realised the possibilities of puff pastry. Why should I stay with regular tur...

Have I ever mentioned that I hated vegetables when I was little? I really did. From all the different kinds of veggies all I would eat was green pepper, corn, fresh pea, cucumber, carrot, and sometimes lettuce. Of course I hated when my mom wanted me to eat some other type, which wasn't very often, as she didn't like veggies that much either. So each time when she would make for example fried cauliflower for the family she would also make something else for me to eat.

I'm not sure when exactly this...
