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.

Mascarpone Cream with Berries

One of the best things about summer are all the fresh berries. In our little backyard we have a blackberry bush or more like hedge. The berries are absolutley delicious, a delight just eating while picking. Luckily there is enough to still make marmelade and yummy desserts. So here goes!

Here is the recipe:

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!).

Little Pastry Appetizer with Funghi Porcini & Truffles

I can’t believe I haven’t been preparing this so much earlier. One of the most simple yet delicious appetizers that are prepared in no time! You only need a square sheet of puff pastry and a spread of your choice (I happened to have Funghi Porcini & truffles spread in the house). And you are just about done. Will definitely repeat with a artichoke spread or just a pesto with cheese sprinkled on top…

This is how you do it:

Cinnamon Quark with Plums

One of my favorite recipes during the autumn season is this easy Quark & Plum dessert. I love the sweetness of the plums and the beautiful color in combination with the slightly cinnamon-spiced Quark. Not only can you end a dinner with this as a dessert, no, you can also eat as a snack in between or for breakfast.

Simple & Healthy Breakfast: Pineapple & Cottage Cheese

Years ago a few of my friends wanted to lose weight and started a diet. And if I remember correctly, the recipe actually is one from Weight Watchers. In any case, its simple, healthy and best of all: delicious and fast to prepare. And you only need 2 ingredients!

Goat Cheese & Date Squares

Sometimes I just want a little something extra next to a salad. These little squares are ideal for that craving. Quite simple to prepare and they taste warm and cold (even though I prefer warm)! Give them a try!

Polpettine

D E L I C I O U S. Need say no more. Ok, I will. These Italian little meatballs are just to die for. Typically eaten as antipasti, in our family we also like to eat them as a main course together with some veggies (e.g. broccoli, green beans, salad, etc.). They take a moment to prepare, but they are definitely worth it. I learned how to make them by a real Italian.
