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...

NYE, Gravad Lax & Celery Consommé w/ Pancake Noodles

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...

Roasted Gazpacho with Sourdough Bread

Roasted Gazpacho with Sourdough Bread

I’m maybe the biggest fan of chilled soups there is. Why not? They’re (often) easy to make, flavorful, healthy, refreshing… And if you have only some imagination, it’s pretty a versatile way to feed people during the warmer months. And here’s another one: a gorgeous roasted Gazpacho with sourdough bread. Wes, it’s as good as...

Chilled Tomato Soup with Cumin

Chilled Tomato Soup with Cumin

Whenever there’s a chance to visit a farmer’s or flower market, I’m game. I like the hustle and bustle of the wee hours, the stalls being set up, people chatting and exchanging a few words with the cheese supplier of their choice. It’s time standing still. It’s like a mini vacation in an otherwise busy week....

Pineapple & Cucumber Gazpacho

Pineapple & Cucumber Gazpacho

on hot days, what’s really better than a refreshing, vegetable based meal? slightly chilled and light. or if it can’t be a popsicle (because we probably shouldn’t be eating ice cream all day long, sighs), make it a chilled soup, instead! without a doubt, i am a big fan of chilled soups… so far, i’ve...

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).

Springlike Watercress Soup

Springlike Watercress Soup

for some, working out is the main source of energy, and for me it occasionally is. though recently i’m much more into “slowing down” while exercising, not pushing my limits. i.e. ballet and yoga do the trick. so graceful and cute – or much rather admittedly ridiculous and lots of fun, those ballet classes for...

Simple, Brothy White Bean Soup

Simple, Brothy White Bean Soup

whenever spring is remotely in sight, trust on me to skip the heavy down coats in favor of candy-colored, whisper thin layers. that would be me, rattling with my teeth, as soon as i step outside. the starry blanket and a hot cup of tea our my true best friends in this seemingly – but...

Veggie Wonton Miso Soup

Veggie Wonton Miso Soup

i made my own soup before i even knew how to spell it. at my montessory kindergarten, there was a proper oven and stove, one that really worked and heated up nicely. i was totally fond of the thing and volunteered in making soup for all of the kids, on every occasion. some 30 (cough)...
