This is the cake I prepared for my Thanksgiving dinner this year. I chose it mainly because of rosemary in the recipe. It sounded so intriguing for me, as I am not used to use it in desserts.
Besides, this recipe doesn’t require mixer and can be put together in 20 minutes [...]
Yesterday was my first Thanksgiving that I actually cared for and prepared for. You must know that when one moves to a new country it takes a while to get used to new customs, holidays, and well, new culture. For me it always starts with this longish period of time when I try to [...]
Recently soups are my favorite dish. Maybe it is because I feel tired most of the time and perspective of cooking is not always as appealing as I would like it to be, or maybe it is just my laziness. Who knows. Regardless, the neat thing about soups is that they can [...]
Hello All! So last week I decided to participate in my first bake sale. The cause was good, and I thought it was also a nice occasion to see if I can bake efficiently for more than two people I don’t know about results yet, although I hope everyone was happy with [...]

This class includes lectures from the top chefs that reveal their secrets and share [...]
When I was writing the cucumber post in July I didn’t think it will be the last one before a long brake. As a matter of fact I was planning to be more active and bring some changes to What’s on the Plate. But then nausea hit me so hard I was not able to [...]
You may have noticed that blog has slowed down recently. I am working to change that, but to give you some explanation – I am just not really usable lately. But, as I said, I am working on it! So please bear with me little longer.
This salad is very quick and [...]
