Happy Roast Beef (Sous Vide)

By | From my kitchen, Savoury | No Comments

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 forget the turkey shenanigans) or…

(Festive) Apéro

By | From my kitchen, Savoury | No Comments

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.

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, to always be polite and…

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 even… A giveaway is something…

Sicilian Caponata

By | Savoury | No Comments

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, the yellow and the green one,…

Ricotta Stuffed Zucchini Flowers

By | From my kitchen, Savoury | No Comments

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 if they do not mind too…
