Grilled plums with Greek yogurt & Pistachios



When I first saw this recipe I thought it was a good looking dessert.
But it is not. At least if you (like me) consider dessert as a sweet
treat....:) So I would not call this a dessert... Then what is it? Try
it and decide for yourself - I don't know :) It can be a gourmet
snack... or an interesting side dish for fish or meat... Anyways, it is
worth a try for sure! It takes about 15 min.

Mix balsamic vinegar, sugar, little salt and freshly ground black
pepper in a saucepan. Heat to boiling on medium-high. Reduce the heat
and simmer for 5 min or until reduced by half. Remove from heat and add
plums (cut in half), stirring to coat.
Place plums on hot grill, cut sides down. Grill until charred, brushing
vinegar mixture onto plums halfway through.
Divide plums among 4 cups, top with Greek plain yogurt. Sprinkle with
pistachios and honey. Garnish with mint.

(works well with other fruits such as peaches, apricots, nectarines. Try
substituting pistachios with almonds, pecan, walnut, etc....)


Az ujsagban meglatva, foto alapjan jokepu deszertnek gondoltam. De a recept alapjan rajottem, hogy nem az!:) Marmint, ha a deszertet edesnek definialjuk - marpedig en ugy!:) Ez nem edesseg - de akkor mi? Nem tudom....probaljatok ki, dontsetek el magatok! :) Lehet csak egy rafinalt "nasi", vagy husok, halak melle erdekes koret...15 perc kb az elkeszitesi ideje, ugyhogy mindenkepp erdemes kiprobalni!

Egy serpenyoben keverj ossze balzsamecetet ( 1dl sacperkabe) izlesszerint cukror, frissen orolt borsot. Kozepes homersekleten forrald fel, majd csokkentve a homersekletet meg kb 5 percig kevergetve vard meg, mig felere surusodik. Ekkor forgasd bele a nagyszemu ringloszilvat,(4-5db) amit elozoleg kimagoztal, felbevagtal. Vagott felukkel rakd a grillre, addig susd, mig szep csikos lesz, kozben locsolgatva az ecetes keverekkel. ( Par perc az egesz, tulgrillezni nem szabad, megtottyad:))
Szedd oket szet poharakba, kanalazz rajuk sima (esetleg vanilias) gorog joghurtot, locsold meg mezzel es szord le orolt pisztaciaval. A mentalevel mar csak diszites!:)
Lehet varialni a receptet, mas gyumolcsokkel pl oszi-sargabarack,korte, pisztacia helyett, mandula, mogyoro, dio...(mez helyett en agave szirupot hasznaltam) Jo etvagyat:)

Dear Friends,

I'm kindly asking you to check this wonderful fundraising event out where we are raising money for the tornado stricken Joplin. There are 31 ( glassimo is in #19) baskets available to win. We want to make sure you know that every $1 counts. It is estimated that it will take over 3 billion dollars just to get Joplin cleaned up before they can even begin to rebuild. So, whether you can give $1 or $1,000 know that it all makes a difference. Please read about how you can donate and win. Thank you all for your generosity. Together we can make a difference in these people's life.
Thank you all and big thank you to Brittany who made this happen.

Custom order


I made these two serving plates as a custom order. If you are an artisan you know that custom orders are always challenges because the client is not able to see the product before it is finished. (At least this is true for glass art)  Will she/he like it - or hate it...? My client who ordered these plates said that she likes what I do so technically I got a free hand ... but we talked it through: talked about colors, shapes, styles... She ordered two colorful, modern plates a la Glassimo. :) Because these plates will be on  shelves close to each other I've decided that I would use same colors but different patterns - so they wouldn't fight each other:) Now I'm excited and crossing fingers ....I hope that she will like it!:)


Ez a ket talka  egyedi megrendelesre keszult. Aki dolgozik megrendelesre tudja, milyen kihivas ez, hiszen a kliens csak a vegeredmenyt latja ( Uvegnel legalabbis ) ....ugyhogy ott az izgalom, hogy tetszeni fog e?:)....Ennel a munkanal szinte  teljes szabadkezet kaptam, de termeszetesen megbeszeltuk a stilust, szineket nagyvonalakban...Szines, modern talakat szeretett volna a megrendelo, a la Glassimo. :) Mivel  egymashoz kozeli polcokon fognak lakni, ezert ugy dontottem, hogy azonos szineket hasznalok mas mintazatban....Igy remelhetoleg nem fognak veszekedni!:)  Remelem sikerult a feladatot megoldanom, s hetfon boldog tulajdonosahoz koltoznek a talak!

Sunday Morning at the Dog Beach









What can be more relaxing activity than taking your dog to a beautiful dog beach?:) Gorgeous weather, sunny day,  dark blue ocean, light blue sky, cute dogs, friendly owners - laid back atmosphere... So, we took our dog Gussy (Gizi) to  Dog Beach in Del Mar.  For most dogs it is a paradise.... For our dog? Well..... not really.:)  She is not a water-loving type:) To be more precise, I think she is scared of the sound of the ocean...( She is scared of hot balloons, too, which have  similar sound) So, the minute we arrived to the beach, she started to pull back.... back to the car or wherever, she wanted to be anywhere but there...:) We tried many tricks to get her closer to the water - not much luck.... You could tell she wanted to play with other dogs but had no courage... So we took her a little away from the ocean to the quieter little bay.... and slooooooowly she started to explore the water....:)  Testing, testing... should I, could I.... yes...... maybe not.... not sure, but I might...
I know it might be in her blood, not all dogs love water - we don't want to force her, but she might enjoy it a little sometime in the future....:) 
But she DOES like sand... so after she got a little wet she rolled about in the sand with smile on her face!:)  Great! Now you have to take a bath at home, too buddy!:))


Mi lehet relaxalobb,mint kutyankat levinni a kutya-srtandra?:) Napsuteses vasarnap reggel, sotetkek ocean, vilagoskek eg, jatekos, jopofa kutyak, baratsagos gazdak....
- laza atmoszfera....Szoval, vittuk Gussy/Gizi kutyankat mi is!:) Legtobb kutyanak ez maga a paradicsom....Nos, a mienknek nem egeszen!:) Finoman szolva, o nem egy vizi-kutya tipus:) Hogy utalja e a vizet vagy csak fel tole ezeddig meg talany....Ugy tunik leginkabb az ocean hangja, amitol igazan fel. ( Legballonoktol is fel, azok is hasonlo bugo-zugo hangot adnak). Ahogy megerkeztunk a strandra a mi kis beszarink mar fordul is vissza!:) Olyan erovel tud ilyenkor huzni, hogy arkokat as a homokba!:) Probalkoztunk mindenfele trukkel, hogy kozelebb vigyuk a vizhez....Semmi sem mukodott....Ezutan atvittuk egy csendesebb obol-szeru reszhez, s itt naaaaaaaagyon lassan elkezdte tesztelni a vizet.....: Menjek, ne menjek? Talan igen.....vagy megsem? Nemistudom, jo lenne, jo mokanak tunik.....nem, inkabb nem.....De, megyek....(lasd kepek:)))...
Tudom, nem minden kutya szereti a vizet, azokat gondolom nem hozzak a strandra:)....De nala meg nem egyertelmu, hogy csak fel e vagy tenyleg total viziszony....
Nem akarjuk eroltetni, de hatha egy kicsit megbaratkozik a vizzel.... !?:)
Amit viszont nagyon szeret, az a homok!:) Igy, miutan nagy batran bevizezte a bundajat , hatalmasakat hempergett a homokban, persze ott, ahol az a legfeketebb...:))
Nem baj pajti, most akkor otthon is furodnod kell!:))

Portland,Oregon

A year ago I wrote about Portland, Maine. This time we spent our anniversary in Portland, Oregon:)  The distance between the two cities is 3,191 mi (5135 km). ( It is funny and sometimes confusing here in the US that several cities have the same name but it is a topic for another post)

In this Portland  we got lots of rain - we cannot complain though - this just the way there.:)It is raining, just stopped raining, almost raining, before rain/ after rain....- I think locals have a big wardrobe full with raincoats in different styles - it is a rainy culture here!:) I DO love rain, but 8-9 rainy months a year maybe a little too much even for me!:) Anyways, rain can't stop people here. It did not stop us either from exploring the city as much as it was possible in few days. Portland has been referred to as one of the most environmentally friendly or "green" cities in the world. We really enjoyed a light-rail which is free and  was made in the Czech Republic!  We almost felt at home !:)
In this city sometimes I felt in Europe, sometimes in San Francisco, New York... or many areas reminded me San Diego too... Because of the large amounts of rain everything is amazingly green, flowers are blooming like crazy... I like the city 's free spirit, the  artsy, crafty, friendly neighborhoods, and that it is the home of Bullseye Glass... etc.... Oh, and  the food cars!!!:) They are in every parking lot offering ethnic foods - a great alternative to the commercial fast food... So cool!:)
This is another great city - I feel blessed to have a chance to visit it - even for few days. Few days to remember. If you are interested I'd like to  share a few pictures here.
Happy weekend everyone!

Egy evvel ezelott irtam Portland, Main-i kirandulasunkrol. Az iden is Portlandban unnepeltuk a hazassagi evfordulonkat, de ezuttal Portland, Oregonban. A ket varos kozott kb 5100km a tavolsag.
( Az kulon tema, hogy az USA-ban tobb varost hivnak ugyanugy,ami idonkent bonyodalmakhoz is vezet...:)
Ez a Portland nagyon esos - nem volt ez most sem maskepp. Hol epp rakezdte, hol elallt az eso, hol keszuloben ,hol nyakunba zudult - de egyfolytaban valamilyen formaban jelen volt! A helyieknek szerintem esokabatbol van a legtobb a ruhatarukban, kulonbozo alkalmakra varialva!:) 
A rengeteg csapadek kovetkezteben  persze minden csupa zold, virag zuhatagok mindenfele...Nem hiszem, hogy sokat kellene locsolni.... 
A varos amugy is  az egyik leg"zoldebb" varos vilag viszonylatban is. Nagyon figyelnek a kornyezetvedelemre - egyik peldaja a varosi villamosok, ami ingyenes, kenyelmes, tiszta es cseh gyartmany!:) Orommel villamosoztunk, kicsit mintha otthon lennenk!:) ( Szegeden is jo villamosozni!:))
Egy nagyon helyes-kedves varos ez, sok szabad szellemu emberrel, muvesznegyedekkel, keptarakkal, kavezokkal, antik boltokkal, piacokkal....es itt a Bullseye Glass otthona is!:)
Jaa, es a sok Uvegtigris!!!:) Minden parkolo tele ezekkel a "bufe kocsikkal" , mintha a vilag minden Uvegtigrise kivonult volna - lattunk ormeny, mexikoi, kinai, koreai, gorog, thai, stb arusokat, akik uj ertelmezest adnak a "gyors-eteleknek". Mennyivel jobb ez, mint a Meki!!! :)
Jo lesz erre a varosra is visszaemlekezni, orulok, hogy lathattam!:)  Akiket erdekel, nehany kep itt.
Szep hetveget Nektek!
