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?

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!!

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.

Prosciutto, Mozzarella & Sun-dried Tomato Appetizer Skewers

I am a great fan of mozzarella, tomato and basil (and avocado ideally), but wanted to prepare something a little different as an appetizer. Instead of fresh tomatoes I used sun-dried ones and added a slice of prosciutto last. A great taste explosion in your mouth, easy to prepare and just delicious. Give it a try!

Arancini Style Leftover Risotto Balls

Sometime I prepare a little too much Risotto and then I of course keep the leftovers. But the Risotto never tastes as good on the next day. So what should you do with the leftover Risotto? I have the solution: Risotto balls! Easy to make and very delicious!

Scallop, Lime & Prosecco Risotto

When I was younger, I never really understood, why one would like Risotto. And then I tried to prepare one myself (my Lemon Risotto to be exact) and since then, I am one of the biggest Risotto fans. However I have to admit, I only like them, when they are creamy! This Lime & Scallop version really is great! What do you think of it?

Check out the recipe here:

Pasta Carbonara

I just A D O R E a great Carbonara sauce. I know, I know, you are thinking – it’s sooo many calories. But you know what, I prefer taking a few more steps instead of using an elevator or take an additional walk, just to compensate those bad little calories…! You should try yourself!

Tuscan Lemon Chicken

Oh how I love vacation. That always means time to try out new recipes and last time we were at my inlaws place again and prepared this absolutely delicious Lemon Chicken. Once again a quite simple recipe and more or less only one baking tray to prepare all at the same time!

Give it a try – see how to make here:
