Hausgemachte Gemüsebouillon

Hausgemachte Gemüsebouillon

Auf Englisch fällt mir das Schreiben fast leichter… Dennoch dachte ich heute spontan, hach, ein Wechsel auf (meine Muttersprache) Deutsch macht doch eigentlich viel mehr Sinn? Ich hoffe, dir machen meine Inhalte nach wie vor Spass. Danke, dass du hier bist! Schon als Kind war ich kein so grosser Suppentiger (wie ich es eigentlich gerne...

Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle, Spätzli, Chässpätzli, Chnöpfli, Knöpfle, Spatzen… or whatever you might call them. They’re basically a foodie’s dreams (plural) come true. For those who do not know what I’m talking about – “Spätzle who?” – here’s a funny description I found: “a specialty from Southern Germany, made by boiling small lumps of dough made from flour...

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...

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...

Alpine, wintery Stew with lentils & sausage

Alpine, wintery Stew with lentils & sausage

To live in Switzerland and so close to the mountains feels like such a blessing. I’ve always liked to venture out into the snow and go skiing and snowboarding. And since I’m not under my parents’ roof anymore I love to go hiking (side note: used to throw a tantrum when I was little whenever...

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Now that the new year is adequately broken in, I can’t help but think how flawed some things are… Beautiful, but nevertheless flawed. Lately, I’ve been taking much care to be punctual, not to forget or lose anything, to take good care of my possessions, to always fold my clothes at night, to work hard,...

Family Christmas Eve Dinner

Family Christmas Eve Dinner

From the safety and peace of my couch, I am now already looking back on two fabulous Christmas dinners. Going through the pictures now, I can’t help but marvel at the beauty of it all. The chats, the laughter, the loud children’s voices, the merrymaking, the food (oh, blissful food) the decoration, the presents (not...

Christmas Cream Puffs with Vanilla & Cranberry

Christmas Cream Puffs with Vanilla & Cranberry

Last weekend I was in a bit of a cooking (and eating…) daze, all the time. We had our parents visiting for lunch on Saturday, which means we were prepping well into Friday night (or Saturday morning, if you like). I love to host guests for a festive, pre-christmas get-together, well before the actual Holiday...

Capuns Dumplings

Capuns Dumplings

Loves, I’m back! Busy weekend, busier week, but hey, we all know the glorification of busy is just so lame, so I’ll spare you the details… Hehe. Much better, instead: the Lindt Holiday Box giveaway is closed! Uhm, I mean: the winners have been picked! There were so many beautiful comments from you, I can’t...
