Menu: Serbia


This week I’m on the hunt to create a little balance in this, our freshly pressed New Year. I found exactly what I was looking for in Serbia. Our menu is equal parts comfort and nutrition, capped off with a ridiculously indulgent dessert.

(Do I need to defend that choice?)

In other news, I have huge, exciting, mega things going on that will affect our family (and potentially yours). I leaked a bit about it on our Facebook Page. More details as they come. For now, thank you for believing in this Adventure. From the bottom of my heart.

All recipes and meal review will be posted throughout the week.

Serbian-style Potato Musaka [Recipe]
Home-style goodness: potatoes layered with ground pork and a creamy yogurt and egg mixture. If it were up to my husband, this would be his entire dinner. Every night.

Serbian Salad [Recipe]
This cucumber, tomato, pepper, and onion salad is as simple as it is refreshing. The key is to top off your veggie mountain with a snowfall of cheese, preferably feta.

Chocolate Ice Cube Cake | ledene kocke [Recipe]
Chocolate sponge cake soaked in orange blossom syrup (or rose water, in honor of Valentine’s Day?), topped with thick vanilla custard, and a layer of chocolate. Oh my.

      Whoops, that’s because I haven’t published those posts yet haha. Sorry about that. Recipes will come over the next few days. 🙂

  1. Congrats on all the attention from Penzeys, Nat Geo, now the TV station, you’ve put so much energy into this, I look forward to the new recipes every week.

  2. I’ve been to Serbia once, when it was part of Yugoslavia, as my former husband’s family is from that region. Beautiful country, amazing food.

    I will be paying attention…

    I went to the Facebook page but could not quite figure out what the big news is all about, so I will patiently wait… I bet it is awesome and I am already excited for you!

      Oh, I wish I had known – I would have loved your input on the food 🙂 Have you tried any of these dishes? I made my status clearer on Facebook, sorry for the confusion!

      • The thing I loved the most in Yugoslavia was something called kaymac or something rather, I cannot quite remember. It is a spread made of milk fat and salt, that they use as butter on toast for breakfast. I simply could not have enough of it! Also a suckling pig roasted whole and all kinds of sausages and kebabs. Amazing flavors!

  3. This is very exciting news and I’m very happy for you! I’ve been following closely for a year now, and am looking forward to the last 43. So many of your recipes have made it into regular rotation in my house. Good luck with all of this! 😀
