ROVIGNO IN PICTURES



I finally found the time to look into gigabytes of pictures from our magical summer road trip. First stop on our way to Italy was beautiful Rovigno, Croatia. We spent only one night and the next morning in this lovely city, it was short and sweet.

The beginning of our summer journey- waking up in the cutest little apartment, having breakfast on the green lawn in our front yard, watching people passing on their way to the beach, butterflies in my stomach, new city awaits us, direction - old city of Rovigno! :)






A walk through the old town, coffee, ice cream, and lots of photos! :) Unfortunately, I don't have much to write, because I spent only few hours here, so I'll let the photos do the talking. I can only say that this city is full of charm, with lots of lovely nooks of the old city with access to the sea and that we definitely have to come back some day!




Now we must go, Venice awaits us!

RAINBOW SNACKS



When it gets cold and gloomy outside, I love to get cozy with a good movie and enjoy the wonderful smells coming from the oven. Add some rainbow colors to that and a rainy day becomes pure enjoyment. :)


Here's a recipe for the rainbow snacks so we can share this delight. :)

You will need:
* 200g flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
50g butter
100gr soft cheese
* pinch of salt

Preparation:
Mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir well.
Add the egg, then stir.
Add butter (at room temperature) and stir.
Add the soft cheese, then stir.
Now is the time to get your hands dirty, knead until the dough becomes compact.
Separete the dough into as many pieces as the colors you want to have.
Add the first color in the first piece of dough and knead until the color is spread evenly. Given that the dough will become sticky as you do this, you need to sprinkle a fine amount of flour on the surface on which you are kneading. The dough should become completely compact, it should be greasy and buttery but not sticky. :)
Repeat with each color.
It is up to you how you mix the colored dough and the shapes you make for your pastry. Warning - it looks very tempting before baking, but be patient. :)



You can, of course, use the recipe for your favorite pastry, the important part is that there are colorful crumbs falling around. :)


Enjoy! :)
