Dinner

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.

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?

Burrata with White Peaches, Avocado & Blackberry Coulis

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!!

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.
