They say “eat your greens” – and God knows it’s not always easy. At least for me. Some days, I feel like healthy eating comes naturally to me. Other days… not so much. Not that I’m always just craving sugar and fat. But often times, unhealthy options are the easier choices. They’re at display, usuallyContinue reading
They say that you’re technically a grown-up at age 18… Well, I don’t know about you, but I most certainly wasn’t a grown-up at 18. To be honest, I’m still not sure wether I’d actively call myself “grown-up”, even now. First, this term leaves no room for imagination. It’s such an unforgiving term. Maybe IContinue reading
To whom sourcing local ingredients is a major concern, brussels sprouts are no doubt a welcome treat during the colder weather season. I love those buddies! Their taste, first and foremost, their texture (especially when roasted, which lends it an incomparable nutty flavor) and not least their looks.
You darlings! I have to thank you for that overwhelming response to the design of the site and also the giveaway (still running until tomorrow, so make sure to enter a comment below the post). I would have never dreamed in my wildest dreams that anyone would be interested in receiving mail from me, but itContinue reading
Summer always causes me to chase that je ne sais quoi “summer feeling”. This easy-breeziness, that you somehow lose at the tender age of 14, and that you only seem to be able to compensate with an indecently expensive vacation to a place that can be summarized with words like: “luxury”, “retreat”, “beach front andContinue reading
I’m maybe the biggest fan of chilled soups there is. Why not? They’re (often) easy to make, flavorful, healthy, refreshing… And if you have only some imagination, it’s pretty a versatile way to feed people during the warmer months. And here’s another one: a gorgeous roasted Gazpacho with sourdough bread. Wes, it’s as good asContinue reading
Whenever there’s a chance to visit a farmer’s or flower market, I’m game. I like the hustle and bustle of the wee hours, the stalls being set up, people chatting and exchanging a few words with the cheese supplier of their choice. It’s time standing still. It’s like a mini vacation in an otherwise busy week.Continue reading
zoodles are the perfect summer meal. they’re light and carbfree and with the coconut milk just a little bit exotic. everything i need for my current itchy feet and wanderlust. i can’t wait for our vacation in august! i really need a break from everything here – work and busy blogging weekends and projects. itContinue reading
although my wardrobe is pretty much stripped to basics and monochromatic tones, i still like color in my home. the fastest way to add a pop of color is with flowers, surely, or a couple of seasonal decorative pillows and throws.
i’m obsessed with rare foods… it’s like my personal challenge to find ways to incorporate them into a meal (that you would actually want to eat). so when i discovered einkorn, i knew it had to be turned into something equal parts simple and special. to make a risotto with the grain seemed like aContinue reading
