Berry Crumble and Summer Throwback

written by Nives

My dear neglected blog,

This has been a long time coming but there is always either something else to do (can you tell I love making up excuses) that I’ve been putting off for a while, or I just don’t really know what to write/post, to be honest. I did lots of wallowing since the summer has ended and am mentally prepared to start doing things again (?or at least I really hope so).

If you’re following me on Insta, you could’ve seen that Lee and I have spent two months along the Adriatic coast, so prepare for a lot of photos. We have visited some old and some new places, and got to know the land a bit more, while catching Pokémon on the go. Our go-to breakfast was guac on toast (still having it almost every day tbh, 10/10 would recommend), and fave dessert – a berry crumble (video and recipe are waiting for you at the end of the post : ).




This pizza unfortunately looks too good to be gluten free, and my version of one wasn’t so presentable, but what’s important is that the pizza dough has risen SO good. At the end there was enough even for a loaf of homemade bread – nice and crispy on the outside, and super soft on the inside.



Falafel fridays were a great idea, but (sadly) never really became a thing, mostly because what was too real about it were – falafel farts 🙁

Some of the places we’ve (re)visited are Baška, Zadar, Šibenik, Trogir, Split, and Hvar island. It was so hard to pick the favourite photos, so there might be a couple of throwback posts in the future, who knows. Here are some of my faves!









Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the berry crumble!
