The pasta is ready in no time and tastes just delicious! Seasonal soulfood […]

You might already heard of the phrase one pot pasta. Either positive or negative. I always wanted to try it, since I saw it the first time on the blog of Lottie and Doof. Unexplicably, I’ve never managed to try it. Over the winter I wasn’t eager to cook at all. But something warm to eat every now and then would be nice. And then the new book One Pot […]

I looked for a recipes with green beans and I got some good recommendations on twitter, thank you! Juliane hinted me some blog posts of her, which attracted me immediately.

It is also very handy that […]

Before asparagus season is over again I have to provide you with this wonderful recipe for an asparagus salad with spätzle and crispy parma ham! It’s too good and great for hot days! And if it is not a hot day you could also serve it warm ;). I adapted this recipe again from Harry Eastwoods A Salad for All Seasons* which has an amazing range of delicious salads for […]

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 […]

This pasta with radicchio and bacon is definitely made for the category “quick and easy”. I love it especially, as the radicchio adds a whole new flavour, also I can’t resist pasta and bacon! This meal is a favourite of me, but as it is with quick meals, you don’t have time and mind to take a pretty picture. So this time forseeing I scheduled it for lunch ;). Yep, […]

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. […]

Originally I wanted to submit another pesto to Peggys Event Rapsölution. But how it happens, my idea didn’t work on the foreevening of the event, of course. Moreover my Nikon striked. Doesn’t go well these days. But I always have some posts waiting in line and I noticed that I still have the perfect recipe. Lucky me! So I’m now submitting this awesome pesto made of carrot tops and pumpkins […]

I’m admiring fava beans in a lot of english food blogs or cookbooks, but I’ve never seen them here in Germany! So last year I gave it a try and grew them on our field to satisfy my curiosity. I liked them very much and found them funny, too! It’s funny, that I discovered them last week in Rothenburg on the farmer’s market at the only vegetables stall there! I […]

Today I’m presenting a true classic on the blog: an italian lasagne with minced beef!  Lasagne is real soulfood, but you need some time for the preparation. Today I’m showing you my version of a lasagne with minced beef and béchamel sauce. Basically it is possible to make a lasagne from everything, so you can also make a lot of vegetarian versions and get creative about that! But every now […]

Besides green asparagus I’m a lover of goats cheese! It’s a […]
