Winter time means kale time. It must’ve been 4 or 5 years ago that I first had kale salad. It was a delight. Ever since it’s one of my favorite winter salads (next to my other two favorites – chicory salad and the good old lambs lettuce) and I’m always looking forward to it. I love to put a sweet component and a touch of color into my salads – so here you have it: kale and raddicchio rosso with cranberries and nuts. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! … More Colorful Kale Salad
In autumn and winter food tends to be more orange and brownish (hello there pumpkins and potatoes) but I really wanted to have some color on my plate. I saw a recipe for green spinach crêpes on the Green Kitchen Stories Blog and as I really love crêpes I thought it was a wonderful idea to color these usually brown pieces of deliciousness. Right now beets are popping up at the local farmers markets and I found them to be the perfect addition to my batter. … More Beet Crêpes aka Pink Omelettes
A big part of what I do in the kitchen is experimenting. I rarely follow a recipe (besides when I want to make a soufflé or something similarly difficult). Lately I’ve been reading about the different flavors, how the enhance each other and where the different cultures take them from. I really recommend doing your own research into that – it’s really interesting and inspiring. … More 5 Flavor Winter Salad
Every year when we visited our great grandmother around Christmas she used to serve us Russenzopf. It’s a traditional cake in western Europe and I love it with my whole heart. It’s perfectly moist (you probably know by now that I love moist cakes), it has a delicious hazelnut filling and is a little sour on top – just how I like it. I was pretty proud how my own take on it turned out – very close to the original. If you want to treat yourself to this delicious cake, give it a go! … More Vegan Russenzopf
Every year I’m really exited for citrus season to start. I love the smell and taste of every single citrus fruit, but oranges do hold a special place in my heart. Probably it’s my fathers love for them, that he passed on to me. Every winter he would buy big bags full of oranges and store a few of them in the fridge, because they taste better cold. During advent season I squeezed the peel so it would squirt into the flame of the candles, that we lit up every night. What a wonderful scent!
So now that we started selling oranges at the market I of course wanted to make an orange cake – and so I did. I’ll promise you – your house will smell delicious (and you’re taste buds will also be delighted)! … More Vegan Orange-Ginger Cake
When I got the offer to bake for MaxMoriz I immediately knew, that I want to bake chai-muffins (hello all my fellow chai-fans), but since it was only October I had to wait a little until it gets colder. As you can tell from the pictures below, I tested the recipe, when it was still warm enough to picknick outside. But now finally the time has come to share the recipe with you. So here they are – hearty pre-christmas apple-chai muffins! … More Vegan Apple-Chai Muffins
