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….

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!

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!

Pumpkin & Coconut Soup with Goat Cheese Crunchy-Bar

It’s that time of the year again with the lovely pumpkins everywhere. Plus the soup weather has started, so this is a great kick-off recipe for this season.

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!

Watermelon & Feta Salad

Refreshing and delicious salad for a good mood and warm summer nights! Ideal as a combo with a BBQ or as main dish when it’s really hot. The colors are marvellous and the sweet and salty taste is super refreshing! Enjoy!

Cheese-filled Mushrooms

BBQ season is one of the best in the whole year, if you ask me. Therefore I am always on the lookout for great side dishes, next to the meat. Of course salads and grilled veggies are always great, these cheese-filled mushrooms are a perfect addition to the set of possibilities. I got to know them through my mother. Simple to make, only 2 ingredients necessary and just delicious.

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!

Beetroot & Feta Salad

I had this salad at a close friends place a few years ago and it is just so deliciously easy to prepare, that I made my own version here. Plus the good thing is, you can have both in the house and can prepare if you get spontaneous guests, as feta has a really long-lasting expiration date. Give it a try! Ideal also for a BBQ – the season is coming!
