What’s For Dinner
Fresh From The Kitchen
Best Beef Bolognese Sauce made in the slow cooker because you have better things to do. 😉 I had pretty ambitious plans for my Thursday. A trip to a grocery store was one of them, but when I looked outside storm Doris was just picking up speed, and that got me doubting I wanted to […]
This One Pot Sausage and Broccoli pasta is giving me all the feels! This sausage and broccoli pasta has a cool story. I promise. A few years ago I was teaching groups of Italian teenagers from Bari. If any of you have any experience with teenagers, you will know they are not easy to get […]
If you haven’t made a crepe cake before, now is definitely the time! Ah Pancake Day!! Is it a holiday, is it yet another excuse to indulge? Who knows, and most importantly who cares, when you have a crepe cake filled with the most delicious blood orange blossom ricotta cream staring you in the face?!? Definitely not […]
Thinking of spending some time this winter in Prague? Here is how you can do it!! I’m a big believer in off season travel. Lower prices are a great start, as are smaller crowds. A place like Prague becomes hauntingly beautiful with a light fog or occasional snowflake. Should you be looking for a recommendation […]
These Filipino Noodles with Pork and Shrimp are simply to die for!! Filipino noodles with pork and shrimp aka Pancit Canton are very hot in our house right now. It seems that children simply don’t get tired of these moorish, salty noodles with crunchy vegetables and neither do we. I must admit I am slightly […]
Well hello, I am so happy you stumbled upon my blog. I am Julia and Vikalinka is my space to share bits of my life with the world. Incidentally, much of my life is taken up by cooking, due to very hungry children and occasionally hungry husband, so you will become witnesses to my culinary endeavours if you choose to stay around.

Beef Bourguignon is one of the few recipes everyone needs to know how to cook! So a whole week passed since I’ve started working from home, and so far I’ve enjoyed it much more than I’d expected. I love going though my mornings at a slower pace instead of dashing out of the door into the […]
This quick naan bread pizza will soon become the fist thing you turn to on Friday night!! This post is coming to you on Valentine’s Day, which is being spent quite unromantically. No, no, don’t feel bad for me!! I was 100% prepared for it and was planning to make up for the loss of […]
A sweet little bite of this chocolate cake truffle is all I want after my Valentine’s Day dinner! So let’s talk about Valentine’s Day desserts. I usually have grand plans and, even if I don’t make one myself, I buy something spectacular. The thing is though by the time we are done with our starters, […]
This Slow Cooker Thai Chicken and Wild Rice soup is just the thing you’ve been looking for! Do you know what a sign of ageing is? It’s when everything you’ve done, seen and tasted in your 20s is much more appealing than it used to be. It’s when you realise that “Bring Back the 90s” […]
Delicious Salmon en croute for two! So Valentine’s Day is coming up…Do you celebrate? And if you do, are you a going-out or a stay-in type of a couple? We definitely celebrate, and through the years we’ve done it at home much more than out. When we were young, childless and still in college we couldn’t […]
Well, this is a big moment for our site – the official launch of Vikalinka Travels! Since I, Brad, have been a featured character on the food blog for four years, it’s high time I piped up and made myself known. I’ll be largely taking ownership of the travel section, although you’ll be relieved to […]
