Soul Fishing's Picks for the Summer 2012

Ok, right now, it's pouring in Ljubljana and I wanted a bit of sunshine and color. I am in love with tribal pattern, which are really hot this season, and anything colorful or beaded, that's why I created this collage. Dude, I want to have all this stuff soooo badly! 

Have a nice Thursday, and I hope it's not rainy,

A Trip to Bled and Bohinj

I have to admit that I don't really go to the mountains, I was always attracted to the seaside, you know, sandy and sun-kissed beaches. Besides, all the tourists always go to Bled and Bohinj and that sort of kills the fun for me. But this time I gave it a shot and I made a little trip with three of my friends up north and I was really surprised at the green and serene countryside, the awe-inspiring mountains that have been here for thousands of years. All in all, if I had to choose a word to describe the beautiful natureI would choose: tranquility.

 The picturesque Bled lake with the island in the middle. It's the only lake in Europe with an island.

 The island has a church on it and if you make a wish, ring a bell and of course pay 5 euros, your wish will come true;)

 My lunch:) at Gostišče Erlah (Eng: the Erlah Inn), I recommend it

 This is a typical Slovene dish: ajdovi žganci z ocvirki. The grayish stuff is made of buckwheat flour and mixed with water and cooked, and those golden bits on top are pieces of bacon. Very tasty and filling.

This is the best beef stew I have ever had in my life. Friggin' delicious!

Another really typical Slovene dish, it can be served as a side dish or as a dessert, in my case I wanted a dessert - štruklji. Please don't ask me to translate it. These are made of curdled cheese and walnuts. Yummy!

 Then we made a stop at Bohinjska Bistrica. The river was just so beautiful! Like something from Lord of the Rings.

 The Bohinj lake
 A typical Slovene Alpine house.

I am really happy that I went up north to the mountains. The fresh air, the lush greenery, it's so quiet and peaceful, it's so relaxing!

Hope you enjoyed this post,

Take care,



TUTORIAL: How to clean your silver jewelry


I think that silver jewelry is really big this season. Silver jewelry, well, any kind of jewelry can get tarnished with time, so I thought it would be a great idea to show you guys how I clean my silver jewelry. The best thing about this ''cleaning'' bit is that it is eco-friendly, bio-degradable and dead easy. I swear.

Here's what you'll need:

- silver foil
- a big glass bowl (it has to be made of glas)
- baking soda

1. Put the silver foil into the glass bowl, silver side up 

2. Put the jewelry on the silver foil

3.Sprinkle soda powder on top

4. Pour boiling water on the jewelry

5.Wait 5 minutes. It's possible that the jewelry will start to slightly smell of rotten eggs. Don't worry that's just the tarnish. And I promise you that the smell is not so overwhelming that you would have to run out of the kitchen;)

6. Polish the jewelry with a soft cloth. And there you go:)

BEFORE (the butterfly is tarnished (brownish color) on the edges)
AFTER (the butterfly is squeaky clean:))

Hope you found this post helpful:)

Have a happy Thursday,




A New Recipe: Mini Fruit Tarts

I haven't done a recipe post in a while now, so I believe it's about time to get started.

For 12 mini tarts, you'll need:

300 g flour
1 egg
90 g powdered sugar, it can be brown or white
200 g softened butter

300 ml milk
1 package of powdered vanilla pudding (the best if dr. Oetker)
80 g powdered white sugar
120 g softened butter
300g of any kind of fruit, the best fruits are: peaches, apricots and any kid of berries
jelly dressing for cakes

    1. Mix the crust ingredients and really squish them with your hands (this should give you a feeling of immense enjoyment, if not, you're doing something wrong;))


    2. Form the dough into a ball like in the bottom picture:  


     3. Cover the ball of dough with silver foil. Once the dough is wrapped thoroughly in foil, let it rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
    (This would be a perfect time for you to have a glass of rose or pinot noir with a friend or your honey)

    4.Take the dough ball our of the fridge and roll it out using lots and lots of flour. Take the baking mini tart models and cut the dough into circles.


    5. Put the dough inside the models and press it firmly into the model.

    6. Take a fork and poke holes into the dough.

    7. Set the oven to 200C and bake for 10 min till the ends turn golden brown.

    8. When it comes to making vanilla pudding just follow the instructions on the package and when the vanilla pudding is almost done and it's nice and hot, just add butte to the mixture, it will make the cream even creamier. Yummy!

    9. Cut the fruit, I used sweet pears and juicy apples, 'cause I had run out of all other fruit:S

    10. Pour the vanilla mixture on the top of each tart. Decorate it with fruit and pour over the jelly mixture.

    And voila! You've got yourself mini tarts! Good job!

    Now you're probably wondering where the heck is the cake-coating jelly? Well, t turns out that I bought the wrong kind in the supermarket and when I realized this, it was too late. But I promise you, it's just as delicious without the jelly:)

    Have a sweet Friday,
