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. Green beans with pasta, lemon sauce and garlic crumbs! This dish is whipped up in about half an hour and therefore perfect for a quick after work dinner! Nonetheless the pasta looks just delicious. It is also very handy that […]

First tomato jam sounds strange, doesn’t it? I thought so, too. But then I had a large bunch of tomatoes, which needed to be processed and I thought why not try it? I’m open for experiments and when you make some research tomato jam isn’t the fancied thing in some countries, but an old hat. The jam tastes great with cheese! A really divine combination. And in winter you bring […]

Recently Snøfrisk approached me and asked, if I would like to create a recipe with fresh goats cheese (Indeed, this is an advertisment!). Of course, i wanted! I’m (fresh) goats cheese addicted! You might already noticed that, because I blogged goats cheese ice cream with strawberry swirls, pizza bianca with swiss chard and goats cheese, pasta with asparagus and fresh goats cheese, potato terrine with goats cheese, basil and pine […]

This zucchini salad with sheeps cheese, roasted almond flakes, lemon zest and mint is my discovery of the summer! I like zucchini a lot, but you have to prepare it properly. Roasting zucchini can make things worse. For this salad the zucchini are raw and peeled in long stripes. All ingredients convey a great freshness! The salad is just perfect for hot days and grilling! I took the recipe again […]

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 […]

It’s again time for one of my favourite vegetables: fava beans! Last year I already introduced you to fava beans with a quick pasta dish, today I have a wonderful tart with feta and the favas! Unfortunately I don’t have a garden anymore and so I cannot grow the beans myself, but luckily there’s a farmer on the market who sells this rarety. I do not use dried beans here! […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
