Pumpkin Mac’n’Cheese

I had a really big craving for mac n cheese for over to years now. I even went to the states and never managed to eat some. So a week ago I had a jar of pumpkin purée left and didn’t know what to make for dinner. Then I had the brilliant idea of making a pumpkin mac’n’cheese and it turned out so good! I mean really good. I was really surprised as I thought it might be a bit too heavy but it was just the right balance. It’s the perfect comfort food for the chilly autumn days. … More Pumpkin Mac’n’Cheese

Salad Topping Two Ways

As the weather is getting warmer my cravings are shifting towards fresh fruits and salads. But as we all know well, they don’t keep us nourished for a whole day – that’s why I like to add little bits and bobs to my salads. Mostly it’s roasted veggies, some sort of cheese or eggs. But I also love to add seeds and nuts, even though I do find them a little boring when plain. That’s why I came up with two salad toppings! I made them for my mums birthday brunch and her guests loved it! … More Salad Topping Two Ways

Creamy Wild Garlic Pesto

So it was spring equinox and our forests start blooming and getting all green again. This means a very happy me! Obviously I had to go for a long walk to fill my lungs with that fresh spring air and soak in all those soft sunbeams. On our way trough the woods, we passed a spot, where my brother and I used to drive around with our bikes. It’s such a magical place with a lot of very small paths and every spring it was filled with a ton of wild garlic and flowers. We harvested quite a bit of the garlic on the way home and I made a fresh garlic pesto that night. I think it tasted even a bit better, because it was from this magical childhood place. … More Creamy Wild Garlic Pesto

I really recommend doing your own research into that – it’s really interesting and inspiring. … More 5 Flavor Winter Salad

Olive tapenade and Tomato pesto

When I was younger my family and I used to go to Greece once a year. Every fourth year we stayed at a hotel on Kefalonia that was owned by a very lovely Greek and Swiss couple. Their menu was great and I had many favorites. They had a phenomenal melitzanosalata (an eggplant dip), great tzatziki and something similar to calzone, that was just mouthwatering. If I remember right, they had one with olives and one with tomatoes and they are the reason why this recipes are coming your way!
It has been several years since I last was there, so it might be that my recipes are far from the truth but nevertheless delicious! … More Olive tapenade and Tomato pesto
