About me

IMG_1789fix

Hi there, my name is Kristina 😉 a Slovenian that moved to Belgium for love <3 (oh so cheesy), where I now live with my boyfriend, Laurens, our cat Stevie and guinea pigs Pujs Mali & Wori Vlekkie. As I love the sea and hot sunny weather, the move was a little bit challenging, but so far I like living here and I love to explore Gent which is a really adorable city.

I would love to say that I was born in the kitchen or that I fell in love with cooking when I was 6 years old, but I won’t, because it’s not true. In my teenage years I considered cooking a chore, it was not until I moved out of my parents’ house that I discovered that I actually enjoy it and I especially like that feeling of accomplishment you get after you succeed in making something delicious.

Now, I love everything related to food – looking at pictures, watching cooking shows, reading food blogs, cooking, baking and of course eating and enjoying it! I always wanted to have my own blog, where I would collect my recipes and share them with family and friends. It took a long time before I put my wish to reality, but eventually I did and here it is.

I chose the name “Oh the Goodies” for this blog because of Laurens, as he says this every time I cook/bake something that he likes.

Somthing more about me:

  • I love mornings and I am a bit obsessed with breakfast – it can make or break my entire day.
  • I believe that a dessert a day keeps the doctor away (unless you are diabetic, then don’t do that). If you otherwise eat a healthy balanced diet of course, moderation is key.
  • Luckily, I also love working out 🙂 fitness, HIT and yoga are my favourite. But at the end I like any kind of sports and if there is something new on the market believe me I will try it. Except running, I would love to be able to run and enjoy it (I once even did), but everytime I go for a run I end up gasping for air like an elephant is sitting on my chest and that is just not nice.
  • When I am not in the kitchen, in the fitness or cuddling on the couch, I’m a PhD student, doing research on malaria.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like what you see!

Hej, moje ime je Kristina 😉 Slovenka, ki se je preselila v Belgijo zaradi ljubezni <3 (oh kako pocukrano), kjer zdaj živim s fantom Laurensom in našim mačkom Steviejem in morskima prašičkoma Malim in Worijem. Zaljubljena sem v morje in sončno, vroče vreme, kar je naredilo selitev malce težavno, kljub temu pa mi je življenje v Belgiji všeč in uživam v raziskovanju Genta, ki je res ljubko mesto.

Rada bi rekla, da sem se rodila v kuhinji ali, da sem se v kuhanje zaljubila, ko sem bila stara šest let, a ne bom, ker bi lagala. V najstniških letih mi kuhanje ni bilo ljubo, šele ko sem se preselila na svoje, sem ugotovila, da v njem dejansko uživam in še posebej mi je všeč tisti občutek ponosa, ko skuham nekaj slastnega.

Zdaj obožujem vse kar je povezano s hrano – slike, kuharske oddaje, branje kuraskih blogov, kuhanje, pečenje in seveda rada jem in uživam v njej! Vedno sem si želela pisati svoj blog, kjer bi dokumentirala svoje kuharske poskuse in jih delila z družino in prijatelji. Dolgo časa je trajalo preden sem si uresničila to željo, a sem si jo in tu je. 

Ime, “Oh the Goodies” v prevodu “Oh dobrote”, sem za blog izbrala zaradi Laurensa, ki to izreče vsakič, ko kaj dobrega skuham.

Nekaj več o meni: 

  • Obožujem jutra in obsedena sem z zajtrki – ti lahko naredijo dan lep ali pa popolno katastrofo. 
  • Verjamem, da slaščica na dan odžene zdravnika stran (razen, če si sladkorni bolnik, potem tega ne počni). Seveda v primeru, da sicer ješ zdravo uravnoteženo prehrano, zmernost je ključna.
  • Na srečo uživam v športanju 🙂 fitnes, HIT in joga so moji najljubši. Sicer pa uživam v vsaki aktivnosti in če je kaj novega na trgu, verjemi, da bom to preizkusila. Le tek je izjema, zelo rada bi bila sposobna teči in pri tem uživati (včasih tudi sem), a zadnje čase se vsak moj poskus teka konča s hlastanjem za zrakom, kot da bi mi na prsih sedel slon, kar pa ni prijetno. 
  • Ko nisem v kuhinji, v fitnesu ali se ne crkljam na kavču, sem doktorski študent in raziskujem na področju malarije. 

Hvala, da si se oglasil-a na mojem blogu in upam, da ti je všeč!
