As you might noticed before I like cocktails. In my opinion this years trend is bourbon and gin and for me the cocktail of the year is the julep! A julep isn’t a just a julep. It should be something extraordinary, too, so I created this pineapple julep with mint sugar! So delicious! I think pineapple is just the perfect juice for cocktails and mint is such a great herb, […]

Summer time, pickling time! Well, I already told you so, didn’t I? I can’t say it often enough ;). The second year I made pickled cucumbers, because the batch of last year was THAT good! Seriously you won’t consider buying pickles again! The only flaw: you have to wait one month until they are infused and are ready to eat. But hey, then you can enjoy them all year long!  […]

Summer, sunshine, ice cream! It will be especially refreshing with some goats cheese ice cream with strawberry swirls! Goats cheese in ice cream? Yes, that’s possible and taste delicious! The subtle flavour of goats cream cheese harmonizes very well with fruit. Besides strawberry, raspberry or cherry would also be great. According to the season this ice cream can be modified easily. On the photo I used my latest bargain from […]

This pasta with green asparagus, fresh goats cheese and lemon is my favourite dish these days! It’s prepared super quick and I’m a sucker for asparagus and goats cheese! The combination of both is divine in any way! Buy asparagus as long as it is still in season, in that case you’ll always have an emergency dinner at home! Besides green asparagus I’m a lover of goats cheese! It’s a […]

Rhubarb jelly was a true discovery for me last year and since then I cannot imagine my jam pantry without it. I prefer mostly jams, which feature the main flavour of the fruit and not ones that are mixed with five other fruits and ingredients. I want to taste every ingredients and assign it properly. Therefore I do not favour four-berry-jams and stuff like that. Rarely there is a combination […]

Finally it’s rhubarb time again! First thing I made with the first rhubarb was my beloved rhubarb crumble, but then I wanted to make something new and different. But that’s not so easy! Everything was already known to me and the recipes were all so similar! And I already had tart, cake and muffins with rhubarb on the blog. So Saveurs link to its best rhubarb recipes just came right! […]

Finally it’s time again for quiche! It’s a potato quiche with wild garlic, to be precise with wild garlic pesto. I’ve already seen and baked this quiche last year, but I blogged not 1,2, but 3 rcipes with wild garlic, then the season was over! And so I blog about it today! I can always enjoy some quiche, they are so delightful: crispy dough filled with delicious vegetables and topped […]

I love the messengers of spring time: wild garlic, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries! It’s easy to make a lot of delicious treats of wild garlic, but the essence is best to enjoy with wild garlic pesto or some scrumptious wild garlic butter! Today we make pesto and in no time you have an amazing pasta dish on the dinner table which tastes like spring! A more eloborate dish which is […]

If you are lucky you might get some late blackberries and peaches for this delicious gluten-free crumble. Unfortunately I didn’t managed it to blog earlier, but as it fits with the gluten-free theme at the moment and as the combination of peaches and blackberries is that good (I wasn’t convinced at all before) I had to blog it nonetheless. I found the recipe in the gluten-free girls aka Shauna James […]

Pesto always rocks! And as you might noticed it doesn’t always have to be just basil (which is annoying, anyway, if you don’t have any basil at home). I already introduced you to cauliflower pesto, pea pesto and swiss chard pesto and today we are again in the vegetables section and it will be yellow! Beautiful yellow corn pesto! Maybe you don’t know what to cook with corn anyway, except […]

My favourite soup! Ok, my favourite soup with carrots. But this recipe is one of those I’m using again and again every year. After the zucchini glut we now have a carrot glut! Recipe recommendations anyone? Besides using up some carrots, this soup is just the right dish after autumn showed up here. Spiced up with some coconut milk and cumin and then puréed finely this soup is a delight! […]

I love mexican food! And in my opinion everything is better with cheese! So quesadillas must be my favourite dish of all mexican food ;). Until recently I thought quesadillas are a lot of work, until I made them myself and realized they are so easy! And you can pack a lot of leftovers from the fridge in them! That’s awesome, too! Of course, those quesadillas would be even better, […]
