Spiced pumpkin, cranberry & goat cheese tarte flambée


Delicious & easy fall food as a starter to share or a 1-person dinner

I just love to make tarte flambée. I swear, I could make & eat it almost every single night, because it’s quick and easy to make and simply delicious.

It’s (almost) pizza, has an amazingly crispy bottom that only takes 3 minutes to prepare, you can top it with anything you like and baking time is 10 minutes, which makes it incredibly quick.

Aromatic baby spinach, grape and gorgonzola quiche

grape gorgonzola & spinach tart 2

Comfort food quiche for cold & grey fall days

The weather has been cold and grey lately, so I’ve been looking for something with some stronger flavors. Also, I really love baking things when it’s cold outside, because the oven warms up the whole apartment, it smells delicious and since I admittedly make a mess in the kitchen while cooking it’s good to have time to fix that😛

Since I’ve been going around the countryside and seen amazing grapes I decided I should integrate them into a recipe. And what fits better to grapes than cheese (and walnuts)?

Oh-so-healthy & delicious fall-flavored carrot muffins

Soooooo I tried did a little experiment with this recipe. My intention was to create muffins without any butter or sugar and to replace these two by healthier, more nourishing ingredients. And for the dough, this wasn’t a problem at all, because I just used avocado instead of butter and dates instead of sugar. I’m really impressed with the result: super moist, carrot cake spiced muffins with a little twang from the lemon-lime drizzle. Continue reading

Fruity apricot & raspberry dumplings in roasted hazelnut coating


Fruit, more fruit, soft dough and a nutty finish: a Bohemian-Austrian classic newly interpreted

Austrian’s love their cooked pastries and since a friend of mine brought me fresh apricots from his grandmother’s garden I thought I should give apricot dumplings a go.🙂 Now, I’m not too much into doing everything the way it has always been done, so I added a little twist (it’s fantastic, trust me!).

Indian-style fish cakes with sweet & spicy tomato chutney

Fish cakes-1-3

Indian curry, sweet & spicy chutney and cooling yoghurt

This recipe has been on my mind for quite a while now, but you know how it is, life’s busy and somehow I never managed to sit down and poor it into a new blog entry. So I’m happy to finally be publishing another post🙂

I really like this dish, because the flavors complement each other perfectly and the chutney is – also as a stand-alone – brilliant. You have Indian-inspired curried fish, soft potato, and this warming sweet & spicy tomato chutney with a hint of coriander that aligns well with the curry flavor. Carrot and peas give it a certain lightness and adding a dollop of fresh natural yoghurt  and some cooling cucumber on the side to balance everything beautifully.  Continue reading
