Apples in a Robe

You will love this simple, old-fashioned treat from Bosnia.   We call it apples in a robe (jabuke u šlafroku) but you can find variations to this recipe under apple fritters, apple donuts, fried apple rings, apple ring pancakes and other similar names. These are easy and quick to make because you probably already have all the ingredients at home.  I love the contrast of textures – the crisp coating that Continue Reading…

PHOTO FRIDAY 28 – Tree 1

Call me weird, but I have a favorite tree. You read that right, a tree. It is located in the middle of a field some short distance from my town. It stands majestic and by itself. I can’t help but admire it. I could dig deep and find all kinds of reasons why, but let’s just say it is pretty. Even without its foliage it’s a good looking tree, or Continue Reading…

Beer and Cheddar Soup

Drinking your lunch is fun, but nothing beats eating your beer. It’s a good excuse to have it before 5 o’clock, don’t you think? What kind of beer you put in your beer and cheddar soup is totally up to you and your beer preference. If you love robust flavor use ale or go with something lighter, like a pilsner, for a more subtle hint. Too dark of a beer Continue Reading…

Peach Sangria Bellini

Cold drink in my hand for three years of blogging! That couldn’t go unnoticed. I’m back just to mark my bloggiversary and share this simple, but sophisticated cocktail with you. Peach sangria Bellini is my new-found favorite. I went through some lengths to find the Monin peach syrup. I stepped into every liquor store in town to no avail. In the end I ordered it online. Taking a break from Continue Reading…

PHOTO FRIDAY 27 – Coffee with Jas 3

All that’s Jas is taking a coffee break, as mentioned in the last post. I only had two cups today and I just might need a third one to keep me awake. I stayed up late last night. I was with my granddaughters while their parents went out on the town to celebrate my daughter’s big Three-O. I remember when I turned 30. The reality of getting old hit me Continue Reading…

My Thursday Favorite Things

Jetpack sent me a nice summary of my 2015 year in blogging. Chances are you got one too, if you are a blogger. I’m not big on keeping an eye on my stats but, nevertheless, it’s nice to have an overview of my best work and my fans. It couldn’t come at a better timing – you see, All that’s Jas is taking a break from The Thursday Favorite Things Continue Reading…

Mimosa

  There is no better way to make any occasion special than to toast with a glass of bubbly, am I right? Now, I’m not a big fan of champagne and neither is my husband. But we still want to make celebrations special. With this mimosa, we can. What I love about this recipe is that it doesn’t use orange juice, like popular mimosas. Mimosa I was so excited to Continue Reading…

PHOTO FRIDAY 26 – Matte Painting

Sometimes I feel like Dory from Finding Nemo. I forget what I was doing a minute ago and I move on to the next thing. Other times I’m a magpie. I get easily distracted by shiny things. So it goes. Shiny things in my case are mostly new crafts, techniques (like matte painting or fusing cakes) or other things I’ve never tried before. Hence, All that’s Jas – Jas of Continue Reading…
