Family Recipes

Last week when I was researching ways to preserve fresh figs, I stumbled across a lovely blog food for thought and let me tell you, I'm glad I did, because not only are Jelena's recipes beautifully presented but they are also delicious! I think once the lemons from the garden are ripe, I'll finally attempt to make a lemon meringue pie.How about these walnut and honey triangles? YUM!
Hollands corn rolls with ricotta, ham and cheese
I joked with hubby that I was finally going to learn how to prepare some of his Mom's favorite recipes. I just love this eggplant recipe, it's like a piece of artwork except it's edible!

1 aubergine (eggplant) 800g
3 large tomatoes cut in half then sliced thin
300gm of feta crumbled
3 garlic cloves finely chopped
cup of parsley
olive oil
basil (fresh or dry)

It's a shame hubby is now following the P90x program because he will be missing out on many delicious recipes. You can click here for more of Jelena's yummy recipes.


  1. Oh No!! Her site is not in English for me. Oh well, I'll have to just stare at those beautiful pictures and see if I can figure it out!! ^_^ By the way, I love the ones you chose!

  2. hmmm that lemon tart looks so good :)

  3. Elisa it is an honor to be on your blog and I hope soon you start your own food blog, exercise the Croatian that you are learning (you got Google translate now it is easier now) and share with us recipes from your heritage.

  4. oh wow it all looks yummy x

  5. Debbie, don't worry, there is the English translation at the bottom of the post, first her language then English.

  6. Jelena, thanks again for sharing your recipes. You have given me a great idea. Especially now that we are growing jalapenos! I just need to find the flour for corn tortillas and I will be a happy Mexican girl!

  7. The eggplant is beautiful! My husband is always staring at his set of p90x...but until staring turns into movement, it's eggplant time. :)

  8. Leigha,
    I joined hubby for one day of P90x and I was so sore the next day! It's tough and takes alot of motivation, but once you get started, it's sorta of 'addicting' to exercise.
    Let me know how the recipe turns out!

  9. yummy! i might try some of these recipes to. Aubergine looks great, the corn rolls, ..and the triangles! where can I see the recipe? looks delicious!
