Making my own Nutbutter

By | From my kitchen, Vegan | No Comments

Nutbutters have been on my list of favorite ingredients for years and years… And the domain is endless. Nutbutters are real multitalents, adding “oomph” to just about anything, from smoothies to porridge and müesli to desserts. To dip a slice of apple in almond butter…? Hmm, delicious. And they’re good spread on top of rice waffles, crackers and bread. Or,…

Avocado Rose (on Toast)

By | Various | 4 Comments

Whenever I see a good DIY project – which happens a lot when you’re a Pinterest addict, like me – I think to myself: “oh, I want to try this!”. I will bookmark it lovingly and archive it under my crafts boards. But then, the likelyhood and truth is I’ll probably never start anything, really. The reason is. well, I’m…

Sticky Rice w/ Coconut Cream & Mango

By | Various | One Comment

When I think of my last proper (read: longer than a weekend, backpacking and free like a bird king of) travels, I think of 2003 (you guys!) when I travelled to Thailand. It was so fabulous! Busy Bangkok and beautiful beaches. And the food… OMG! Da best. Thailand got me forever hooked on coconut, curries, rice in all shapes, exotic…

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…

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…

Whole Roasted Cauliflower w/ Sumach & Flowers

They say that you’re technically a grown-up at age 18… Well, I don’t know about you, but I most certainly wasn’t a grown-up at 18. To be honest, I’m still not sure wether I’d actively call myself “grown-up”, even now. First, this term leaves no room for imagination. It’s such an unforgiving term. Maybe I also kind of want to…

Two Turkeys Thanksgiving & Raw Butternut Slaw

By | From my kitchen | One Comment

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 one, in my own oven….

Romanesco Couscous with Pomegranate

By | From my kitchen | 3 Comments

Super scrumptuous – while at the same time raw, paleo, vegan, glutenfree (and basically all the other freaky things)…? I’ll take that, please! Why have I never thought of making Romanesco Couscous – or Cauliflower Couscous, for that matter – before in my life? How was I even able to exist without it? Okay, maybe a teeny bit melodramatic of…
