Dinner

Yellow & Green Stuffed Round Zucchini

The summer is finally here and next to bbq-ing nearly every day (or eating a delicious and light salad), sometimes a little variation is needed. These round zucchinis are a fun alternative to the lengthy ones I usually buy. But when I stumbled upon these beauties, I wanted to give them a try. And here goes…

Burrata with Fresh Peaches & Pine Nuts

With the warm temperatures I always enjoy eating a cool and light dinner (or starter). I had a similar dish at an invitation of friends and recreated it with a little twist! This fruity, nutty mixture with the creaminess of the Burrata is a delight for your taste buds. Hope you like it as much as I did! Hmmmm….

Pasta with Pesto Rosso

Pasta is just one of the best inventions ever. Just plain with butter and parmesan cheese or with all the variations of sauces that are possible. This Pesto Rosso is a very nice alternative to the typical “normal” pesto Genovese. It’s great as a dip with some crackers or grissini, as well as on pasta. Simple to make and ideal to store for a few days in the fridge.

Asparagus Tonnato

Not sure about you, but I for myself love Vitello Tonnato. And this adapted version is delightful. Fairly light (mixing cream cheese with mayonnaise) and perfect to have as variation for the asparagus season. Did you know that white and green asparagus have the same origin, just one sees the sunlight and the other doesn’t? Crazy nature. But delicious in any case!

Black Tagliatelle with Lobster-Tomato-Cream Sauce

Christmas is over and the new year has started! But we wanted to treat ourselves on the first day of the year. The good thing is that this pasta dish is easy and fast to prepare, which made it ideal for today. Happy new year!!

Gruyère Cheese Pasta

…or Mac & Cheese for grownups! I am the biggist Mac & Cheese fan and this little twist with the Gruyère cheese is delicious. It really is comfort food for me and in times where you just need that “food hug” it’s just great to make.

Oven-Baked Pumpkin with Camembert

Oh I love the autumn season, with all the leaves coloring and the pumpkins everywhere! And the light is so beautiful, when the low shining sunrays shine through the trees. So of course I needed to try out a new recipe with pumpkins included, this time not sweet, but salty in combination. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. We served to a piece of meat as a side, but also ideal to just eat with a piece of baguette.

Mediterranean Oven-Codfish

Often I search for easy dinner recipes, that don’t take long to prepare and that give me time to spend with my family. But are still healthy and delicious and don’t involve pasta or pizza 🙂 And this is just one of those recipes! Simple to prepare with few ingredients, healthy and just delicious.

Fried Halloumi Cheese with Coriander-Caper-Lime Vinaigrette

One of my absolute favorite vegetarian dishes. Ideal as a side dish for a BBQ meat or as a starter. Both works perefectly well. Simple to make and due to the fact, that Halloumi has such a long shelf-life, you can have a pack in the fridge for any unexpected guests! And you can leave out the coriander, if you should not be a fan (or if you don’t have any at home). The first time I made this was with my mom and we instantly fell in love with this recipe!
