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....

Love & Light

Love & Light

Winter time childhood magic. What ingredients are your childhood winter memories made of? Mine for sure include: candle light, heavenly baking smells from Mami’s cookie sessions filling the house, oranges, clementines and cinnamon included in every meal, the Samichlaus visiting at home, writing wish lists to Santa, the twinkling lights and the tree, and of...

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...

Autumnal Checklist

Autumnal Checklist

With every new season I am accutely aware how time flies. E will be two (as in: years old!) in December. And although the days are long, the years really are so very short. Time flies even more with kids. So I’m making an effort to always live in the now and celebrate everyday. Make...

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 –...

Two Turkeys Thanksgiving & Raw Butternut Slaw

Two Turkeys Thanksgiving & Raw Butternut Slaw

How does “Two Turkey Thanksgiving” sound to you…? Our friends hosted their annual Thanksgiving fête last Sunday, and because their guest list is ever growing, two turkeys had to be made. So Günther (the 10th!) was joined by Hildegard (the 1st). And I, as the closest (geographically) and their neighbor, had the honor to roast...

Flammkuchen with Goat’s Cheese, Butternut & Shiitake

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 realize...

Apple Fritters & Fall Flowers

Apple Fritters & Fall Flowers

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 those...

Curried Coconut Lentil Soup

Curried Coconut Lentil Soup

though the weather has been wonderful, thirty-something years’ worth of experience tell me that this current swiss summer weather likely won’t stay forever… something tells me it will soon make way for proper, spring-like unpredictability. that’s what i’ve grown to know (and love, kind of).
