I am the first to shout “here”, if there’s mexican food involved. I love tortillas, quesadillas, tacos and co! For this delicious “fingerfood” I reduced the beans in a smoky spicy tomato sauce. On a bed of lettuce the beans will melt the cheese and are topped with sweet, sour and creamy avocado. It is a dream! If you have tortillas at home it is so easy to whip a […]

Crispy, fluffy rolls and in between a luscious filling? Perfect everyday, right? Like these meatballs subs. Meatball subs are meatballs with tomato sauce in a sandwich roll. To round off the colours and for soothing my conscience I added a few leaves of fresh spinach. Done! To balance the spicyness of the meatballs and the tomato sauce I used chipotle chili flakes, because they are smoked, which tastes divine! If […]

Paneer is an indian cheese, which can be used in indian dishes instead of meat. I’ve never seen it for sale anywhere, but now it is so very easy to make it yourself! The cheese is perfectly firm and doesn’t fall apart whilst cooking. It’s wonderful in indian dishes and when I’ll find the perfect dish with paneer I’ll definitely let you know! Until then try familiar indian dishes and […]

This risotto with black rice from the po valley and saltwort (barba di frate) is full of Italian ingredients and flavours and you might as well find it on an Italian menu. I just got inspirated from what I had at home at that moment! The black rice is also perfect for other rice dishes. I picked it up in a deli named Eataly. You already might know Eataly from […]

Recently I was in Italy and of course I shopped a lot of groceries there ;). I discovered some italian specialties , like cima di rapa. When I see something special like this I have to buy it! What I will do with, I’ll figure out at home. In this case I made an easy, but very delicious pasta dish, which features the cima di rapa perfectly! Cima di Rapa […]

Sometimes two great coincidences happen at the same time: I was able to pick up some organic limes and Deb of smitten kitchen blogged a recipe for key lime pie! I had to bake this pie immediately, since I love limes and pie! The only thing missing for the perfect pie is a pie dish in the right size! But it would have taken too long to buy one first. […]

After making my own wheat flour tortillas I wanted to make corn tortillas, of course. After a bit of research it turned out more difficult than expected, because you nead a special flour, called masa harina. Masa harina is a special treated corn flour which is nixtamalizated. Nix-ta-what? Nixtamalization is a traditonal Mexican process, which is already used since 1500 BC and improves the baking properties, inhances the flavour of […]

Maccharoni and cheese are like sea and salt, fish and chips or potato dumplings with sauce. A perfect pair, which belongs together. And like dumplings with sauce this is true soulfood! I wanted to give you this recipe for such a long time, but I never managed to take a good photo. This meal is so easy and you only need simple ingredients that are mostly at home after all. […]

Autumn is here and therefore it’s time again to cuddle up, drink warm tea and cook with pumpkins, apples, pears and quinces! In summer I avoid chocolate because of the heat, but now it’s time again to make delicious stuff with chocolate. So I recommend you a blanket, a good book, a warm cup of tea and a slice of this scrumptious creamy chocolate tart. I discovered this recipe in […]
