I’ve been busy…will tell you about it soon.
It’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry about that…I’ve been so busy with various projects, namely a new one called Fifteen Questions. I am editing the site with my friend Tobias from Berlin who also loves food and music. Anyway, … Continue reading
I am having a cookie conundrum. I made my usual choc-chip cookie, for the umpteenth time, and lately I have been taking special care to measure out the butter and peanut butter, to get a more consistent result. Now I … Continue reading
When ever I make mash potatoes, it never turns out to be perfect. There’s usually lumps, sometimes it’s a little too dry or wet. When I make macaroni it doesn’t always turn out the same either, some times it’s good, … Continue reading
It’s a busy week. Mum and Dad have been helping me organise our Croatian food stall at the school’s Summer Fair. We’re going to be selling cevapi rolls and oblatne, a Croatian wafer cake. I’ve had a devil of a … Continue reading
I couldn’t let this week go by without a Jubilee mention. Queen Elizabeth II has reigned for 60 years – a milestone the world will most likely never see again. I love it how all the longest reigning monarchs of … Continue reading

I am a huge fan of Mexican food but I am usually disappointed whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant.
I have been to my fair share of Mexican eateries and often find them over priced, miserly with their portions and lacking in ambiance.
Until I discovered the Flying Fajita Sistas in Glebe, NSW.
I can’t even remember how I found it, a friend I think and I remember taking my playgroup mums there for our end of year party.
Needless to say it was a huge success and I have been back many times over the years.
It is a stand-out establishment for many reasons. It has a wonderful ambiance. The waitresses wear pretty, Mexican tunics and the decor is typically colourful and cheery but not in any way cheesy or contrived.
I just get the sense that when I enter this place, it is run with love and care and this makes all the difference.
Of course the food is excellent, consistently so. Every time I go I get the same quality food and every time I enjoy it with relish.
Stand-out choices on the menu are anything containing the Achiote pulled pork. It is so tasty and succulent….
The Queso fundido dip of charred tomato and ancho chile salsa melted with cheese is amazing.
The corn chips are specially made and super crunchy and they go so well with all the dips.
All of the dishes are generous portions and priced reasonably.
But wait there’s more…they serve THE best margaritas, here’s a taste;
The Sistas – Traditional margarita; house tequila, triple sec, lime juice shaken or frozen
The Classic – Sour Margarita with 1800 Blanco Tequila, shaken only
Top Shelf – Patron Silver Tequila, Patron Citronage, Fresh Lime, a bit of Lemon and some sweetness
And the desserts are also worth trying, if you can fit them in.
I am terribly sad that I won’t be visiting The Flying Fajita Sistas any time soon… this is definitely something I miss about Sydney.

Prigradica is the swimming place for the people in the town of Blato, tourists in the know and anyone lucky enough to stumble across it in their yacht or dingy.
This is the view from our balcony. I spent every night sitting out with AT, sipping beer and sampling the local snack treats. For some reason they LOVE peanut-flavoured chips over there.
Despite the fact that I was sick for half the holiday with an awful sore throat and ear ache, we had a great time.
Highlights were Dad’s birthday party on the farm property of a relative, night swimming, family dinners and AT’s birthday cake.
While I was gone, Lurpak Australia announced the winners of the Lurpak Baking Challenge. Look out for the recipes cards of the winning recipes in a Woolworths near you.
There will be another exciting Lurpak-related news item this week. So watch this space.
It’s good to be back and I can’t wait to tell you about what I ate in Croatia.
