Miriam’s Hygge Dinner

Hygge – this is the Danish word for a feeling we can experience in a warm space where we gather with kind people to share a meal. Hygge is a way of living, it is a word created to grasp the feeling of being at 

Living A Very French Life

Living A Very French Life

Welcome to the very picturesque countryside of la France where cows gleefully chew their grass and birds build their cosy nests. For some reason I am very drawn to this country, though the reason does not entail the word croissant – I promise. This time,

Supper Club – Time For A Picnic

Summer has arrived – it’s hot, it’s sweaty, it’s sunny and about time for a lush picnic in the beautiful, stunning, lush park in front of our house! We gathered a bunch of fellow foodies (some of whom you know already such as Lloyd, the 

Nate’s Porridge Party

Nate’s Porridge Party

Nothing in this world is at it seems. Except, possibly, porridge. – Stephen Fry Nate, also known as the Willy Wonka of Porridge, is much excited about oats. Oats? Yes, oats! He does enjoy food in general but his special love and attention go to our 

Supper Club – Ottolenghi’s Levant

Supper Club – Ottolenghi’s Levant

I recently moved to a new apartment in Berlin (one that is closer to trees and lakes and funnily enough wild boars). When moving here, I might have dropped the words  I am a foodie. Did that resonate with my new housemate Stella? Very likely. Because 

Vegan Coffee, Chocolate & Banana Loaf

Vegan Coffee, Chocolate & Banana Loaf

Coffee, chocolate and banana in one loaf? On top of all of this walnuts? HELL YES! I love baking loafs of any sort, because it gives me an accomplished feeling when pulling a risen loaf out of the oven! Banana bread is one of my

Melissa’s First Picnic Of The Season

This is Melissa.  Melissa is a ray of sunshine. She comes from South Africa and it seems that she brought some of that African sun with her to Berlin. It’s been a while since we last saw each other so it was lovely to be

The “I Love Butterbeans” Hummus

The “I Love Butterbeans” Hummus

If you spend a least a little bit of time with me, you will have heard this sentence recently: ‘I LOVE BUTTERBEANS’! I annoy my housemate, sibling, friends and office colleagues with this and once they taste that heavenly take on hummus, they very well 

Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Spicy Buckwheat

Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Spicy Buckwheat

Soup is boring? I don’t think so! I know some people who claim to not enjoy soup as much as other dishes and I think I know why: the soups they had up until this point missed one essential ingredient: crunch. Yep, crunch is what

Lloyd’s Saag, Dal & Fesenjan

This is Lloyd. Lloyd is a one of a kind. The first time we met, he walked into my living room, took a look at one of my plants and then – he saved it. Is this the modern version of heroism? I think so. 

Food Choices

Food Choices

When someone offers me a chocolate chip cookie, I am not very likely to take it. Why? Because nothing in me wants it: not my taste buds, not my food-loving heart and not my body that wants to be nourished. However, that does not mean

Raspberry & Peanut Butter Swirl Cake (V, GF)

I’m sorry, you guys, because I hope that I don’t bore you with my beloved favourite ingredient: peanut butter! I honestly put this into nearly everything, whether savoury or sweet. Do I ever get tired? (Un)Fortunately not. This cake is peanut-butter-loaded, so it can only 

Birthday Recap

Birthday Recap

My fellow foodies, I turned 25 years old! The quarter of a century. I think I like that number. 25. Yes, sounds about right! I celebrated in Berlin together with a colourful bunch of friends. Two friends of those in fact, Sofie and Sanna, came

Irresistible Raisin & Cinnamon Scones

I went all in for these beautiful scones: butter and milk are ingredients I rarely use but for this recipe, I went back to basics. No buckwheat flour, no coconut oil, no oat milk, just simple whole wheat, butter and milk. Through People Who Cook, my

Apricot Oatmeal Bake

Apricot Oatmeal Bake

Oats for breakfast give us great fuel for the day and I usually don’t get tired of porridge or homemade granola. But I do enjoy to take my favourite ingredients and turn them into something new. Combining oats with a mashed banana, some oat milk,
