“Witches” Iced Tea

“Witches” Iced Tea

Summer. A simple word, filled with so much meaning. And now that we’ve had a taste of it, we want more! We’re waiting in the wings to tick things off our summer bucket list. On the very top: picnics for every meal! Of course, a nice home-made iced tea is the star of every al...

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....

Provence, 2018

Provence, 2018

One month away as a family. Away from home, away from work, away from old habits and ruts. Not that we needed an escape from our everyday life as it is. But a change of scenery air is still good, every now and then. To give you new perspectives, inspire, intensify the family bonds. To...

Vanilla Tonka Ice Cream w/ Honeyed Peaches

Vanilla Tonka Ice Cream w/ Honeyed Peaches

I am a minimalist at heart, not needing much. Give me a pair of jeans cut-offs to live in all summer long, a swimsuit and an old pair of Birkenstocks, plus my daily dose of ice cream to survive in this heatwave – and I’m a happy camper. Ice cream equals happiness for me, simply...

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...

Chocolate Ice Cream & Home Made Cones

Chocolate Ice Cream & Home Made Cones

Hey Lovers of all things pretty! I’m back to this (strangely strange) space. Hello, blogosphere, it’s me, the foreigner, just checking in. And I brought chocolate…! To compensate and win you over, you know? Kind of. Lol, no, honestly. I hardly remember how to do this thing called “blogging” anymore. It’s been wayyyy too long...

Sicilian Caponata

Sicilian Caponata

Sicilian Caponata is something like the better ratatouille (sorry, Frenchies). It’s more clever and more versatile at once. I love that it’s also eaten and enjoyed cold and on its own, not just as a side. I wish i could grow all the vegs that go into it in my own backyard. Those super pretty squashes, the...

Marinated Zucchini Salad

Marinated Zucchini Salad

Although fall is definitely my favorite season – how can anyone not love it? it’s not as cold as the winter, it’s not as scorching as summer and it’s not as unpredictable as spring… And that’s just for everything that it’s not. Apart from the fact that it is also a lot of really good things…

Wild Blueberry Galette & Fishing in Finland

Wild Blueberry Galette & Fishing in Finland

“Gone fishing in the middle of nowhere” – how does this status update sound to you? It was what we actually and honestly did this summer during one blissful week: Fishing in Finland. Looking at the pictures now i feel a pang of longing.

Chococo Popsicles

Chococo Popsicles

Summer isn’t all but gone yet – despite the much chillier mornings and nights – but i’m already craving darker, moodier, more comfort oriented foods. If only for the looks. And what better to fulfill this mood than dark, intense, naughty chocolate? [gap height=”20″]
