Heute ist Julia von Chestnut & Sage zu Gast, die einen wunderbar einfachen Snack mitgebracht hat, der auch bei absoluter Kopfleere schnell gemacht ist. Chestnut & Sage versprüht eine helle Leichtigkeit die ich total gerne mag. Julia kenne ich außerdem auch persönlich und es ist jedes Mal eine Freude sich mit ihr über Bloggerthemen, aber auch über ganz normale Sachen zu unterhalten. Nicht nur, dass wir auf einer Wellenlänge sind, […]

To lift myself from my afternoon energy valley I need some snacks, so that I do not rely on cake, sweets and so on. I remembered that in my childhood there where these little energy balls (it was the whole grain era, my mother indulged in!). In my childrens cookbook from my childhood I found this genious recipe, which is made in a pinch and tastes splendid like hazelnuts! 1 […]

I know I told you that the spätzle asparagus salad would be the last asparagus dish for this season, but I changed my mind ;)! As I was on vacation in May I had to indulge in the rest of asparagus season and this lukewarm asparagus salad with nuts and orange is so unbelievable good, that I cannot wait until next year to tell you the recipe! Since ages this […]

Last year in October I was at Neue Heimat in Berlin. There was a small street food market with live music. It was really beautiful and they had some interesting food to sample. Main dishes were quite boring, but the snacks and the cocktails were exciting! They had a stall with cocktails made with tea, which were awesome and a stall with raw food, which had amazing raw chocolate brownies! […]

Last year I made a batch of barbecue sauce with peaches. Unfortunately I couldn’t manage it with the peaches last summer and so in autumn the barbecue sauce in stock looked very meager. Then in November I was invited to a whisky event and after that I was able to experiment with the smoky Single Malt Whisky Ardmore. And nothing fit better than to refine my barbecue sauce with that […]

After the gluttony of Christmas and New Years Eve people want to concentrate on healthy, light food. Ok, some people. It’s not that I don’t like salads. I love salads that have a lot of going on in texture and where only little leavy greens are involved. The big problem with salad is that they are cold. Not good for someone like me who is freezing a lot. The good […]

Some time ago I told you that I love to have breakfast. Just, I don’t have time for that. I want to sleep instead. At least in the week. So mostly I eat a yogurt at work and that’s it. That’s ok, but not the best. And because I’m a bit fastidious demanding about yogurt (don’t buy the big brands, no fruit pieces, no softened granola, no artifical flavours, so […]

I already wrote that I have so many ideas what to to with the chai spice I mixed. One of these is this homemade chai almond milk, of which everythings is homemade, including the almond milk! I just didn’t grow the almonds ;). Nut milks are one of these hipster milk alternatives, which you can see everywhere these days, especially in all those hip hipster cafés with fair and hand […]

You have some carrots left from making the awesome carrot top pesto? Then this is the right dish to use them: oat porridge with carrots, coconut and orange! At the weekends I love to have a rich and cosy breakfast. But I’m really bad in deciding what to make. Rolls with a large range of toppings, waffles, pancakes, crepes or another totally different breakfast creation? This time I made porridge […]

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! […]
