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.
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
on hot days, what’s really better than a refreshing, vegetable based meal? slightly chilled and light. or if it can’t be a popsicle (because we probably shouldn’t be eating ice cream all day long, sighs), make it a chilled soup, instead! without a doubt, i am a big fan of chilled soups… so far, i’veContinue reading
this spring, inexplicably, i haven’t gotten around to enjoying gathering my own share of spring’s abundance. as a self-declared “herbal witch” and a big fan of gathering – see evidence from former gathering sessions here, here, here or here – i feel so ashamed to admit i’ve never even picked one leaf this season. and i’m afraid many of the wildContinue reading
just in time for spring, trust on me to develop a diffuse kind of spring detox cleaning sensation. i want to throw everything out that’s superfluos, polish the candle sticks and silver, paint the walls a crisp, new white, wash every last bit of garment in my house, unfold and fold it anew, rethink everything.Continue reading
