  1. Hey Sibella….I don’t know where to start with these recipes they all look so good!…I have made challah bread,but not poppy seed so I will start there.God Bless You

  2. Sibella.. Greetings from a fellow Bosnian in Tampa, Florida. My name is Igor and I am 28. Not up until recently, (about a year ago) I honestly did not care for cooking my self because as you know, bosnian parents and grandparents spoil is in the kitchen and I never had a reason to cook my self. Well, everything changed when I met my girlfriend who happens to be Jamaican. Her name is Kara-Kaye 🙂 Anyhow, to make a long story short, she fell in love with my grandmas (fatima) cookings. Especially Grah. So one day, jokingly I told her that she would need to learn how to make Grah if she ever wants to live with me lol. And well.. she smiled and said all men in Jamaica cook and if I expect for her to cook for me, that train has to go both ways. So, being someone who NEVER made anything more than a sandwhich, she slowly started to teach me how to make basic things like Rice, fried food, and simple stuff like that. Of course my mother and grandmother were laughing when I approached them about teaching me how to make bosnian food but eventually they realized that I am a changed man. Guess what?? I ENJOY COOKING! omg! I love it! Kara-Kaye and I have started cooking together a lot.. and we usually cook jamaican or bosnian food and sometimes we combine it. I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE! I am still trying to master GRAH and so is she.. and even though I believe we will never match my grandma’s cooking, I do believe we will get close to it. LOL… Your website is very insightful, user friendly and your recipe’s are amazing and I am following them a lot to make some great dishes. Thank you for such great website and keep rocking with all your dishes. Btw.. She recently started learning how to make “Musaka” and it is so awesome to see all this culture in one kitchen. I am pretty much awesome at making Jamaican curry oxtale and it is so delicious. While in the mean while she is attempting to make Musaka with my grandma’s assistance and the way they two communicate in a language I cannot even understand its too cute but very beautiful to see. Food brings people together and your site is full of positive comments and people and I wish you the best of luck.

    Sve naj bolje i pozdrav iz Floride!

    1. Hello Igor,
      Just found your comment today and it just made my day! 😀 Thank you so much for sharing your story, it’s really inspiring and a proof that if there is a wish, there is a way! It’s really great that you and your girlfriend can now enjoy cooking together all the Bosnian and Jamaican dishes. HOW GREAT IS THAT!!! 🙂
      I am so glad you’re enjoying my site! For the next year I plan to add more cooking recipes, and not only baking. For grah (as for pita) you will need a little more practice and every time you make it, it will be better.
      Thank you again Igor, for all your kind words, they have truly inspired me to do more and better and YES, food does bring people together! Please feel free to contact me if you ever have any question and I’d sure be happy about any comments too.

      I wish you the best of luck in your relationship, new found passion in cooking and in everything you do! 🙂

      Hvala puno, i tebi takodje lijep pozdrav iz Indijane!


  3. Hi Sibella, my husband is from Bosnia and I made your Grah recipe and he was in heaven. It came out beautifully! We just received a package of bosnian smoked meat from his brother in law which made it very authentic. Do you have a recipe for Tarhana? Or potato chorba? Thank you!

    1. Hello Melissa, thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! I am so glad that grah turned out so good for you. My plan is to post tarhana recipe soon. There are different ways of preparing potato chorba. If you tell me a little bit more, maybe I can find a good recipe to share. Thanks again! Happy New Year! 🙂

  4. Hello Sibella! Fantastic site and Fantastic food you make. Couldnt be more easier to learn. Can you please add bosnian baklava one time? Sadia Hussain

  5. Dear Sibella,

    I love your recipes! My boyfriend was born in Zenica and last year we went there for visiting family. I loved all the food, but it’s hard to find good recipes untill I saw this blog.
    Do you know a good recipe to make gibanica? Don’t know if this is the right spelling ?

    Regards, Michelle from Holland

    1. Hello Michelle,
      Thanks for writing and nice to meet you! 🙂
      Yes, gibanica is the right spelling. It’s a type of pastry that we also refer to as pita, with a difference that gibanica is made with the layers of phylo dough and cheese. I do have a recipe for the phyllo dough which you can see in my recipe index. The only thing you would have to do differently is you would need to let your phyllo dough dry a little and then cut into the size of your baking pan and then layer it 2-3 and then cheese filling in between and repeat until both, dough and filling are gone. You may try also using store bought phyllo dough which will make your job much easier! 🙂
      Glad you stopped by!
