Traditional Czech Potato Salad (Paleo, Whole30)

Homemade Smoked Garlic Mayonnaise

Homemade Smoked Garlic Mayonnaise

In the middle of the week you might be probably too tired to even think of cooking. But what about just something simple what would uplift your dinner to the next level? Something that would fancy-up even meals as simple as sausage and veggies? Yeah, of course it’s mayonnaise. Because mayonnaise goes with almost everything. The other option is hot sauce. Now I’m not sure which one I like better. But since I started this article as a recipe for Homemade Smoked Garlic Mayonnaise I might as well finish it.

Did you ever try to make homemade mayonnaise?

Pho Ga With Zucchini Noodles

Pho Ga With Zucchini Noodles

Happy Monday people! I know, it’s a bit rainy here in Brisbane, not very happy. But I’ve got the solution. Because what can cheer you up better than a good hot soup on a rainy day? And if you follow my Instagram a bit, you will notice that I started a new little Monday tradition. Because the beginning of the week is usually when we have our days off. And as much as we both love cooking at home and working in hospitality, sometimes we like to relax a little from both and go out for lunch or dinner. We are still humans, right? Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that all of this and our love of Asian cuisine combined with my obsession with soups led to a thing I started called #phomonday.

Kangaroo-Beef Burgers

Kangaroo-Beef Burgers

Weekend is almost knocking on the door and for those lucky of you it means a well deserved time off. I will save myself this privilege for Monday and Tuesday. Which is actually a really great time to be off as there is less people everywhere. Which really suits my introverted self. However, back to the weekenders. I’ve got a great recipeĀ for you to try this weekend for Kangaroo-Beef Burgers. Because it looks like I’m adapting to the Aussie lifestyle slowly. Well, certainly when it’s about food and BBQ. But what is better than a BBQ with friends and family when the weather is so good? And what is better than a decent juicy burger?Ā  Continue reading

It looks like winter might be finally coming to Brisbane. After a long time we woke up to a cold and rainy day today. Well, the temperatures are still similar to an average summer in Czech Republic, so it’s not that bad. And not that I like it, but I guess we need the rain every now and then. And finally the cooler weather is a good excuse for me to cook more soups. So I’m gonna start the winter season with thisĀ Super Easy Leek And Sweet Potato Soup.

Whole30 Day 30 – This Is The End

Whole30 Day 30 - Lunch

Holy crackers, I made it! I didn’t die as I suspected. I survived all the 30 days without grains, dairy, legumes, alcohol and sugar! Instead of that I focused on whole nutrient foods, like meat and veggies, with occasional little treat in form of nuts and fruits. And it wasn’t so bad after all. What seemed really hard at the beginning turned out to be pretty easy over the time. The hunger faded away. The cravings got smaller. And even though I had 3 (sometimes 4) meals a day, I don’t have the urge to eat every 2 hours anymore.
