So, I thought it’s time to share a nice Christmas cookie recipe with you, since it is only less than two weeks until my absolute fave holiday, yay! I developed this one years ago by just putting together some different recipes and these cookies have been one of my faves so far! The cookie itself is not too sweet which the plum jam redeems just perfectly. This year, I tried them with raw brown sugar and rolled oats flour (in order to make them more digestible and a little healthier) which fit just perfectly. The cookies got a little darker in color and the taste got soooo much better! Continue Reading
I love a good spoonful of crunchy home made granola, how about you?! I first made it myself, because my former roomie’s creations smelled sooo amazing! She gave me her recipe and I’ve improved my granola baking skills ever since. Today, I have a special winterly granola for you that contains all the winter spices like cloves and cinnamon. Happy munching!
As it’s getting more christmassy every day now, I’d like to share my favorite Christmas market dish with you! The German name is ‘Handbrot’ which could be translated by hand-bread (if you like it badly translated, otherwise just call it stuffed bread…). It’s basically fresh rye bread, traditionally stuffed with ham, cheese and mushrooms (which can be replaced with pretty much everything) and topped with a dollop of sour creme. This is really popular in Germany, be it as a midnight snack at your fave music festival in summer or, as I mentioned, to keep you warm at a Christmas market in winter. It’s a great snack to bring for parties and to have with your friends after or before a long night out or for dinner with a nice cup of hot mulled wine! And for the second Advent week, I’ll show you how you can make it yourself : ) Continue Reading
I am a huge fan of yeasty buns, cakes and breads! No matter the season, there is always something delicious to be made with a nice yeast dough! Whether it’s a plain braid for easter, fruit cakes in summer and autumn (with rhubarb and strawberries or with plums…yum!) or this stuffed braid for Christmas season! Or breakfast rolls, bread or pizza at any time ; ) For this recipe, I used my classic easter braid recipe and added a veeery nice stuffing (attention, rum involved) that I made up and also some baking time. This recipe is really easy and the outcome is beyond delicious! Continue Reading
Who doesn’t love a juicy piece of a classic American carrot cake? I have figured out the perfect recipe and literally no one has ever not liked it! The cake is super soft and delicious and the vanilla-cream cheese-frosting is very rich but still tastes light and smooth! It’s one of my most favourite recipes when it has to be something special but not fancy… But please try out the recipe yourselves : ) Continue Reading
who likes cooking seasonally?! Well, I do and it’s yellow turnip season and here’s my amazing recipe for yellow turnip stew, which I created last week. Continue Reading
I wanted to share this recipe for such a long time, but never had the chance to take nice photos of it, until last week, when I made this Tarte Flambée for lunch instead for dinner (for the light)! Tarte Flambée is a French pizza-like tart with a very thin bread crust and originally topped with sour cream, onions and bacon bits and baked for a short period on very high heat. And it’s delicious!!! And so quick and easy to make. I reinterpreted it autumnally with cottage cheese, spices, pumpkin, apples and fresh arugula and I make it at least every two weeks throughout the season.
When the weather turns cold and the leaves begin to fall down, I love going for long walks in the forest, wearing a warm wool sweater and walking beside my loved ones and collecting leaves and chestnuts. When we get home, we love sitting in front of the fire place, warming up on some hot pumpkin coconut soup and see what each of us found in the woods. Continue Reading
the recipe I’m sharing today is my heavenly creamy millet porridge. It becomes extra creamy by adding some almond butter and extra juicy by stirring in apple compote. The tahini and maple drizzle makes it almost a dessert and upgraded it to my new fave food! If you are into porridge and healthy, comforting food, you should absolutely try this recipe : ) Continue Reading
I have something really nice to share with you today! This really really easy parsnip soup is perfect for autumn: it’s warming, creamy and comforting and just sooo delicious! I topped it with some of my quick Arugula Pesto and some toasted sourdough bread sticks. The best thing is: you only need five ingredients for this! Let’s see how it’s made… Continue Reading
