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...

Soft-Boiled Eggs w/ Asparagus Soldiers

Soft-Boiled Eggs w/ Asparagus Soldiers

I love breakfast. And though I’m not a brunch person, I think breakfast is a good time to invite people over and to come together for an informal, healthy, strengthening meal to kick off a happy day. Easter around here is made for brunching, people go all out on the display, featuring Zopf and eggs...

NYE, Gravad Lax & Celery Consommé w/ Pancake Noodles

Happy New Year & welcome, 2016! May it be a year filled with light, love and lots of good food for you. They say you can make new year’s wishes until the 6th in Switzerland, so I guess I’m still on schedule. We celebrated NYE with a couple of friends in our home with a...

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...

Chocolate Coconut Stars (& Trees)

Chocolate Coconut Stars (& Trees)

Incredible how fast time goes by… I’ve been meaning to get into Holiday Baking much earlier, but life got in the way. December… Gotta love this season! So many plans, so little time. As it turns out, this Sunday was the first opportunity to simply bake something (not strictly necessary). So I got into the...

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...

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...

Hot Chocolate Bar & Giveaway (closed)

Hot Chocolate Bar & Giveaway (closed)

Ever since I had the first (proper) hot chocolate (memory) from real, melted chocolate (and, quite needless to say, not just from powder), I was hooked. There was no going back. I used to sip on such a rich, “real” chocolat chaud in the beautiful town of Aixe en Provence, in the South of France,...
