Sicilian Caponata is something like the better ratatouille (sorry, Frenchies). It’s more clever and more versatile at once. I love that it’s also eaten and enjoyed cold and on its own, not just as a side. I wish i could grow all the vegs that go into it in my own backyard. Those super pretty squashes, theContinue reading
Phew… So my blog was down for a little while. a couple of days of sweating and worrying, but really, not much harm done. Nevertheless, I’m so relieved! And with that, I’m celebrating with a frozen, ready to head pizza from migros, hahaha. So classy, so classy. Yup, me. And also, this made me realizeContinue reading
As introduced to you some time back, I had the honor and the pleasure to work with Kuoni on my favorite drinks for an “elsewhere” inspired Cocktail Hour. You already saw and maybe tried the Peaches & Roses Bellini, which is one of the best treats whenever the occasion arises to host a fabulous brunch! So simple to stir together, too,Continue reading
There’s something about chocolate that always makes me see the output (read: the chocolatey goodness i just created) in a monochromatic way. Why? Because the Black and White scenes offset the chocolate’s beautiful, luscious dark, chocolatey brown even more. What normally appears to be just a dark brown color shines even more on an otherwise bland blackContinue reading
Some might associate spring or summer with the loveliest flowers, but for me it’s always been Fall… Just look at those mighty Sunflowers! Huge! And right in front of my mom’s house, in the middle of the city, on an underestimated little field. The abundance of flowerful colors – Sunflowers but also Dahlias and thoseContinue reading
Although fall is definitely my favorite season – how can anyone not love it? it’s not as cold as the winter, it’s not as scorching as summer and it’s not as unpredictable as spring… And that’s just for everything that it’s not. Apart from the fact that it is also a lot of really good things…
“Gone fishing in the middle of nowhere” – how does this status update sound to you? It was what we actually and honestly did this summer during one blissful week: Fishing in Finland. Looking at the pictures now i feel a pang of longing.
I don’t know about you, but leisurely weekends spent going for intricate cocktails are just the best. Bonus if it’s at a nice bar (i especially like english inspired interiors or ample hotel lobbies to go with my Amaretto Sours).
Summer isn’t all but gone yet – despite the much chillier mornings and nights – but i’m already craving darker, moodier, more comfort oriented foods. If only for the looks. And what better to fulfill this mood than dark, intense, naughty chocolate?
I simply can not walk past zucchini flowers – or any edible flower, for that matter. Zucchini flowers always leave me strangely torn between wanting to embrace them and on the other hand leaving me to feel sorry for the zucchinis that are bereft of their beautiful accessories… I tend to ask the zucchinis nicely ifContinue reading
Hello and welcome on F&F! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Scarlett and I love to elevate the everyday with honest, simple food.
