Pita Bread with Tuna Salad

Sometimes in summer, we like to have little picknicks or have a meal outside, that you can easily bring along. This was always a snack our mother would make for us and we all loved it. And we really like the pita bread that was just the little bit different than normal bread.

See what you need to prepare here:

Quiche with Goat Cheese & Figs, Prociutto, Honey & Walnuts

We are enjoying our lovely family vacation in the beautiful house of my in-laws in Tuscany. They not only have a great pool, donkeys, a tractor (yes, all the things my little one adores), but also fig trees in the garden. And lucky enough – we just harvested the last figs of the season! So what else could I have done than directly prepare a meal with them included?

American Cheesecake

My husband is a cheesecake lover – ranging from the German “K√§sekuchen”, which has a more fluffy consistency, to the classic American Cheesecake version. And as it was his birthday lately, of course one of the cheesecakes needed to be made for the birthday table. The good thing about the American Cheesecake is, that it doesn’t need the oven, making it a lot nicer to prepare in hot temperatures.

Mascarpone Cream with Berries

Here is the recipe:

Remember not too long ago I posted a similar dish? Well I pimped it a bit, well actually a bit more than a bit. Some additional different ingredients combine this to a taste explosion in your mouth. Oh yes, you definitely want to try this out!!

Tomato & Feta Salad with Pine Nuts

Simple salad, looks beautiful and tastes deliciously summery! To be honest, I more or less scattered together what I still had in the house, having been too lazy to go grocery shopping and the result was great. Plus the Swiss national colors for the 1st of August national day!! Happy birthday Switzerland!

Bircher Muesli

Don’t know how it is with you guys, but if I would let my son choose any meal he’d like, first thing would be pasta (just with butter and Parmesan cheese), second definitely would be home made Bircher muesli. He just adores it, must-have being lots and lots of raisins! Perfect as a healthy start to the day as breakfast, but also ideal as a snack in the afternoon (or even dinner, if your kid convinces you!).

See how the simple recipe goes here:

Caprese Salad with Artichoke Hearts

Loving this typical Italian caprese salad, this time I prepared it with a little twist: With artichoke hearts for the “green” instead of the typical basil leaves. Once again super simple, easy and fast to prepare and just delicious. Definitely worth a try, especially if you like archtichoke hearts as much as I do!!
