Rainy day calls for a soup!


Rainy day? I would say it's a perfect time to make yummy soup! I started experimenting recently with  this recipe and it works out great - every time! Now the butternut squash soup became regular meal in our home. It is soooo delicious, creamy and very healthy for you. Its perfect for those cold days and nights. Bon appetite!

  • 2 shallots, thinly diced (~40 g)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbsp or 6 g)
  • 6 cups (840 g) butternut squash (~ 1 small butternut squash)
  • Pinch each sea salt + black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp (12 g) curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 14-ounce (414 ml) can light coconut milk
  • 2 cups (480 ml) vegetable broth
  • 2-3 Tbsp (30-45 ml) maple syrup (or sub coconut sugar)
  • optional: 1-2 tsp chili garlic paste

FOR SERVING optional

MAKE YOUR OWN BROWNIES



Are you thinking about what to bake for holidays? Craving some chocolate? You want something crunchy on the top but fudge and delicious inside? SOUNDS LIKE BROWNIES!!

Vintage Simplicity




























Are you dreaming about White Christmas all ready? Take a look of these photos and see if they can inspire you!



I visited this beautiful Florida home just recently and, i was AMAZED. Literally. This house belongs to an artist and antiques lover so every single corner is filled with vintage pieces. Everywhere i looked, i was in love at first sight.
Also, i got SOOO much inspired by this home style that i decided to upgrade my blog with INTERIORS category which means that hopefully in the future you will see more of beautiful houses that i am lucky enough to capture :)
Let me know what you think about that!
And enjoy the photos!

Da li već sanjate o Belom Božiću?Pogledajte ove slike i vidite da li će vas inspirisati!
Posetila sam skoro ovaj divan dom na Floridi i ODUSEVLJENA sam. Bukvalno. Ova kuca pripada umetniku i osobi koja je zaljubljenik u antikvitete tako da je svaki ćošak bio ispunjen vintage komadima. Gde god da sam pogledala, zaljubila sam se na prvi pogled.
Takodje, postala sam TOLIKO inspirisana ovom kućom da sam rešila da svom blogu dodam i sekciju entirijera što znači da ćete ubuduće videti još lepih kuća koje sam srećom posetila!
Pišite mi šta mislite o tome!
I uživajte u slikama!
