Roasted Veggie Salad

Roasted Veggie Salad

Unfortunately it’s still winter outside – but can we do spring inside? We can do it. I’m a big fan of “nose to tail eating”. And by that I don’t mean the pig’s tail (I leave these to my carnivore enthusiasts friends…), but instead imply that we should look at vegs that way, too! Because...

Waffles For The Table

Waffles For The Table

You know those types of people, who always order good stuff – pancakes, waffles or dessert – for the table? They’re my people. Simple logic: you want those waffles – and so does everybody else. They might just not be ready to admit it, or ready to indulge in so many calories, all by themselves....

Happy Roast Beef (Sous Vide)

Happy Roast Beef (Sous Vide)

For my long-time readers: you know how I’m not big on meat, yes? Some even say “she only does desserts and vegs”, ahaha. And I admit, it’s not entirely wrong..! I like to make a bird for Thanksgiving though (which I tooootally missed this year, ugh! Setting a mental reminder for next November, not to...

(Festive) Apéro

(Festive) Apéro

Do you remember the famous “Täschler” from Betty Bossi? I remember it clearly as an element of my childhood, right up there with the likes of Nintendo, the walkman and Double Dip. The Täschler was maybe the most prominent, helpful little household gadget of the nineties. Mamas all over the country would use it to...

Home Made Greek Yoghurt w/ Pumpkin & Spice Granola

Home Made Greek Yoghurt w/ Pumpkin & Spice Granola

As a humble but avid home chef, you keep on expanding your horizons. I love to venture into new foodie terroritories. So after having explored most if not all the cuisines of the world, baking up a storm and trying out many things from scratch (like stock, pasta, bread and more) there were always a...

Vanilla Tonka Ice Cream w/ Honeyed Peaches

Vanilla Tonka Ice Cream w/ Honeyed Peaches

I am a minimalist at heart, not needing much. Give me a pair of jeans cut-offs to live in all summer long, a swimsuit and an old pair of Birkenstocks, plus my daily dose of ice cream to survive in this heatwave – and I’m a happy camper. Ice cream equals happiness for me, simply...

Slow Cooker Posole Verde de Pollo

Slow Cooker Posole Verde de Pollo

As a lover of all things Anglo-Saxon, a slow cooker is high up on my (rather long…) wish list. Although we have never met – something tells me its truly missing in my life. True and sad story though: slow cookers just don’t seem to exist in Switzerland. Or at least they’re not really a...

Making my own Nutbutter

Making my own Nutbutter

Nutbutters have been on my list of favorite ingredients for years and years… And the domain is endless. Nutbutters are real multitalents, adding “oomph” to just about anything, from smoothies to porridge and müesli to desserts. To dip a slice of apple in almond butter…? Hmm, delicious. And they’re good spread on top of rice...

Introducing Solids, Part I

Introducing Solids, Part I

We were “en vacances” in the beautiful Provence, France. My aunt’s house has been my favorite vacay destination, ever since 1982. It’s a hidden, old gem with giant garden. Something about it being entirely non touristy makes it all the more special. And with bébé, I think it’s even better to have your own kitchen...

TV Snack Mix & Ramblings on Motherhood

TV Snack Mix & Ramblings on Motherhood

Over the past couple of months, I’ve lived the typical #momlife, with all the ups and downs you’d expect. Mostly, I’ve showcased the beauty of it. Like the cute chubby baby thighs, the smiles and giggles, the sweet clothes and toys, the active days on the go with the stroller, with baby sleeping soundly. That...
