Spätzle In A Hurry

By | From my kitchen, Savoury, Various, Vegetarian | No Comments

Spätzle, Spätzli, Chässpätzli, Chnöpfli, Knöpfle, Spatzen… or whatever you might call them. They’re basically a foodie’s dreams (plural) come true. For those who do not know what I’m talking about – “Spätzle who?” – here’s a funny description I found: “a specialty from Southern Germany, made by boiling small lumps of dough made from flour and eggs [cul.]” Since there…

Flower Pot Carrot Bread

By | From my kitchen | 6 Comments

  I love bread. Yes, I could basically live off it seven days a week, 24 hours a day (no intermittent fasting happening). But so far, the only bread I’ve dared to bake at home, on the regular, is: pizza (which, are we honest, isn’t really bread, because, PIZZA), Banana Bread (dito, it’s cake, right?) and my beloved no-knead bread….

Tea Squad

By | From my kitchen | No Comments

Remember when I introduced you to my new baby, aka my fab little tea machine, the MASTER.T by SPECIAL.T? Well, the machine has been used on the daily, ever since. And I wouldn’t trade it for gold! My new motto: the best tea – the best way. Okay, so I stole that one, technically. But it’s just so accurate. When…

Where the Easter Bunny lives…

By | Mamalife | One Comment

When I was a child, my mom used to love creating magic for us. Not a single childhood myth she didn’t cover with a perfectly curated web of “lies” (technically, but I stick to the euphemism “stories). She’d pull all the stops for ocasions like a lost tooth (she was an excellent tooth fairy) and magically made “Schoggiateler” appear (from…

Roasted Veggie Salad

By | From my kitchen, Vegan | No Comments

Unfortunately it’s still winter outside – but can we do spring inside? We can do it. I’m a big fan of “nose to tail eating”. And by that I don’t mean the pig’s tail (I leave these to my carnivore enthusiasts friends…), but instead imply that we should look at vegs that way, too! Because what works with meat sure…

Now that we finally have sunshine, it feels like spring is just around the corner. And while I haven’t missed anything during the colder season, the first warming rays of sunshine have been like a promise. And like every year, suddenly I’m in the mood for spring. It is so nice how a bit of warmer (not even necessarily good…

Waffles For The Table

By | Flowers, From my kitchen, Sweet | No Comments

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. So in order to indulge,…

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?

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

By | Various | One Comment

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…
