Easter Fried Egg Pavlova

By | From my kitchen, Sweet, Various | 6 Comments

If you’ve been a long time reader, you probably know I’m all about the cheesy things (both, literally and non-literally) and definitely all about the cute foods. Anything cute, dressed up, dolled up, decorated, whimsy, pink, unicorn-y… yeah, I’m sold. Point in case: this easter pavlova in disguise, pretending to be a simple fried egg. Does it get any cuter?

Soft-Boiled Eggs w/ Asparagus Soldiers

By | Various | No Comments

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 in different versions and fruit…

Grilled Artichokes with Fava

Do you know that yearning for spring sensation…? I’m still very happy about the snow (on the mountain peaks, mainly, where I plan on going skiing next weekend again, ha). But at the moment, all I want is fresh greens and soft flowers. Blooming nature! Young sprouts! Daffodils! Peter Rabbit! And peas, wild garlic, herbs, asaparagus, strawberries, radishes… Spring is the…

this spring, inexplicably, i haven’t gotten around to enjoying gathering my own share of spring’s abundance. as a self-declared “herbal witch” and a big fan of gathering – see evidence from former gathering sessions here, here, here or here – i feel so ashamed to admit i’ve never even picked one leaf this season. and i’m afraid many of the wild things are already a bit…

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 grown-ups.

Carrot and Banana Loaf with Cream Cheese Frosting

somehow i’ve been craving carrot cake these past couple of weeks, and never got around to making one. easter was kind of like the inofficial deadline (i take the rabbit’s calling pretty seriously). this time around, i deviated from my standard carrot (only) cake, adding banana. and guess what? it was pretty good, very moist and naturally sweet. the cream…

Linguini with Barba di Frate

having some time off over the easter holidays was so good for body, mind and soul… i took the “time off” quite literal, in that i unwound and enjoyed time with friends and families, and did not much else, really. needless to say, there was a lot of feasting involved, too. i’m feeling a little overindulged (if that’s a proper…

easter has always been a serious business at our house… especially when i was a kid, my family would plan the easter egg hunt meticulously. most years, we were at my aunt’s & uncle’s house in the south of france with a huge pine forest as a garden. hunting for chocolate meant we were stuck in that forest for hours…
