Prettaly – Pretty Italy



Lemon Ricotta Pasta

Years back on the island of Capri (Italy), I had a similar dish in a restaurant and since then, I have been trying to figure out, how to make this delicious pasta. And this is the closest I have gotten and really like it. Few ingredients, mixed up together brilliantly! Give it a try!

Potato & Bacon Roses

The BBQ Season has finally started and our BBQ space is mostly occupied with meat in some sort. So I actually like preparing the sides in the oven. And these beautiful potato & bacon roses make a great side dish – not only tasty, but they beautify the table too. They are quite simple to make, so give them a try!

Cinnamon Tart

The usually gloomy November month has started, but has served us with a few nice sunny autumn days so far. But it gets dark earlier now and how better can you enjoy that with cake and a cup of hot cocoa, coffee or tea?! And this slightly spicy tart is ideal to also warm you from inside!

Pasta with Tomato-Sage-Bacon Sauce on



Delicious! That’s what I can say to this recipe. I am always on the lookout for fairly easy and fast to prepare recipes, especially to prepare on weekday evenings, when I come home from work, put the little one to bed and then still need to prepare dinner. Those recipes come in really handy…

Lettuce Hearts with Meatballs, Avocado & Dates

With the nice weather outside I really crave a healthy lunch or dinner. My fridge still had a bit of minced meat left, so I thought I might aswell prepare a salad with meatballs! It turned out really nice and due to the fact that meatballs are delicious warm and cold, it’s great to prepare.

Mango Mozzarella Salad


A dear friend once showed me this very simple  but mouthwatering salad. With me having an obsession with mangos at the moment (or always), it’s a super fit. You can also add pomegranate seeds or avocado – whatever suits your taste buds on that day. But the pure original version is my absolute favorite. Perfect all year round, but especially in summer.

Cinnamon Cream Cake


This is pure delight and worth every calorie it has!! And the biggest plus about it? It’s super simple to make! Just mix together all the ingredients and pour into the baking tin. And that was it! Did I promise too much? Give it a try!

Porcini Mushroom Risotto


My husband is the biggest fan of the Italian porcini mushrooms. So what better can I do – as a good wife – to make a delicious risotto out of the dried porcini mushrooms we brought back from our last trip to Italy?

Here is how to make this delicious dish: Continue reading “Porcini Mushroom Risotto”

Lambs Lettuce with Mushrooms, Pine Nuts, Avocado & Figs


The last sun rays are warming our souls and just before we go into the whole autumn food (which I am very much looking forward to!), a salad is just what you need. And figs are great this time of year and give the little extra to the recipe.
