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...

Giant Cupcake (1st Bday Cake Smash Session)

Giant Cupcake (1st Bday Cake Smash Session)

So our friends’ daughter and C’s god-daughter turned one last weekend. Cue: Smash The Cake! I mean, come one, you can’t be a professional Pinner and NOT have a Smash The Cake Session, right? So ofc I volunteered (read: forced everyone to be allowed) to bring a sweet little cake entirely dedicated to the little lady,...

Easter Fried Egg Pavlova

Easter Fried Egg Pavlova

If you’ve been a long time reader, you probably know I’m all about the cheesy things (both, literally and non-literally) and definitely all about the cute foods. Anything cute, dressed up, dolled up, decorated, whimsy, pink, unicorn-y… yeah, I’m sold. Point in case: this easter pavlova in disguise, pretending to be a simple fried egg....

Apfelwähe – Simple Swiss Apple Tart

Apfelwähe – Simple Swiss Apple Tart

One of the foods I love the most is Wähe – a Swiss version of the tart, that’s made with either fruit or vegs and some sort of a curd to hold it all together. My favorite version is sweet, of course (incorrigible sweet tooth, me). I like to make them with seasonal produce –...

Beetroot Chocolate Cake

Beetroot Chocolate Cake

I know I shouldn’t start every other post with a swear word… but GOSH! Time is flying! Little is already 12 weeks (three bloody months!) old and it’s a thought that drives me insane. Still enjoying every precious second that we have together while I’m still at home, full time, and can dedicate all my...
