Tomato & Feta Salad with Pine Nuts

Simple salad, looks beautiful and tastes deliciously summery! To be honest, I more or less scattered together what I still had in the house, having been too lazy to go grocery shopping and the result was great. Plus the Swiss national colors for the 1st of August national day!! Happy birthday Switzerland!

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!!

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:

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.

Yoghurt-Lime-Mousse

Are you looking for a great light and fairly easy to make dessert for Christmas? Or just a great inspiration for a lovely finish to a typically heavy main course? Well look no further – this is just perfect!!

Another plus is, that you can prepare a day ahead!

Merry Christmas to you all!!

And as it’s light and tangy, this dessert is also great in the summer time…

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.

Oven-Baked Pumpkin with Camembert

Oh I love the autumn season, with all the leaves coloring and the pumpkins everywhere! And the light is so beautiful, when the low shining sunrays shine through the trees. So of course I needed to try out a new recipe with pumpkins included, this time not sweet, but salty in combination. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. We served to a piece of meat as a side, but also ideal to just eat with a piece of baguette.

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!
