Whole Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the Stalk

Whole Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the Stalk

To whom sourcing local ingredients is a major concern, brussels sprouts are no doubt a welcome treat during the colder weather season. I love those buddies! Their taste, first and foremost, their texture (especially when roasted, which lends it an incomparable nutty flavor) and not least their looks.

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...

Chocolate Coconut Stars (& Trees)

Chocolate Coconut Stars (& Trees)

Incredible how fast time goes by… I’ve been meaning to get into Holiday Baking much earlier, but life got in the way. December… Gotta love this season! So many plans, so little time. As it turns out, this Sunday was the first opportunity to simply bake something (not strictly necessary). So I got into the...

Two Turkeys Thanksgiving & Raw Butternut Slaw

Two Turkeys Thanksgiving & Raw Butternut Slaw

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...

Kale Cesar’s Salad

You darlings! I have to thank you for that overwhelming response to the design of the site and also the giveaway (still running until tomorrow, so make sure to enter a comment below the post). I would have never dreamed in my wildest dreams that anyone would be interested in receiving mail from me, but it...

Mulled Wine Gingerbread Bundt Cake

Mulled Wine Gingerbread Bundt Cake

  Normally, I’d be working on putting together The List for my Seasonal Bucket List – but this year, it just feels like we’re still so far away from Winter and The Holidays… Or maybe this year just went too fast? It sure was an eventful on. Normally, by this time, I’d be well into...

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).

Cherry Cardamom Pavlova

Cherry Cardamom Pavlova

pavlova! i don’t think this ever gets boring. clouds of meringues, tart, boozy cherries on top,  hints of cardamom… what’s not to like? in other words: i’m really into pavlova. i mean i wish i could be one. no! i really mean: i just really like pavlova. full stop. and i can’t wait for spring...

Kaiser-Schmarrn with Apple Sauce

Kaiser-Schmarrn with Apple Sauce

the odds are: i really like kaiserschmarrn, and i’ve praised its perks – i.e. comforting, sugary, sweet and basically everything you want from something to eat – at least once (though in my mind, it’s been far many times than that, really). and for those of you who have no idea what kaiserschmarrn is, here’s...

Winter Feast

Winter Feast

as much as i love to cook and entertain, i’m not complaining when i’m invited for dinner, either. especially at my mom’s. she’s a grat cook and i’m always happy when she’s in one of those ‘showing off’ modes, like she was pre holidays on that particular night. i’ve kept the pictures hidden way too...
