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

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, […]

Rainbow Carrot Cake with Silken Tofu Icing

Rainbow Carrot Cake with Silken Tofu Icing

Carrot cake never gets old! Don’t you agree? These orange  fellas are perfect for baking because they are easily disguised, don’t have a super strong veggie flavour when hidden in baked goods and add a bit of colour to our sweet little treats. This time, […]

Almond Butter Stuffed Dates

Almond Butter Stuffed Dates

I’m really into dates and appreciate their rich sweetness in baked goods and energy balls. Do you, like me, also love eating them just like that? They are so satisfyingly sweet that it’s difficult to eat more than 2 or 3, don’t you think? Combining […]

My Go-To Dinner: Roasted Veggie Salad

My Go-To Dinner: Roasted Veggie Salad

What’s for dinner? In my case, it’s often this: roasted sweet potato, aubergine, red onion and garlic. What I love about this dish is that you can change the ingredients according to what your fridge offers. My favourite version is obviously this one but you […]

I am German, what can I say: I love baked goodies. I remember that when I was a child, my parents would take me to our favourite wholesome bakery and let me chose a little baked treat. What memory stuck with me the most? The […]

White Miso, Chocolate & Almond Butter Blondies (V, GF)

White Miso, Chocolate & Almond Butter Blondies (V, GF)

Banana, Peanut Butter & Walnut Muffins With Buckwheat & Oat Crumble (V)

Bananas are one of my most beloved foods and if I could, I’d put them into nearly everything. As most of us, I love a loaf of banana bread as well as banana pancakes for a pretty little (or rather scrumptious) breakfast ceremony. This time, […]

Lentil Salad with Walnuts, Raisins & Tahini (V, GF)

Lentil Salad with Walnuts, Raisins & Tahini (V, GF)

Tahini Brownies (V, GF)

Tahini Brownies (V, GF)

Brownies are gold. But do they need sugar, butter, eggs and wheat flour? Not at all! These tahini brownies are chocolatey, fudgy, perfectly sweetened, nutty and will melt on your tongue. They have ripe bananas, cocoa, tahini and hazelnut flour inside which is why they […]

Kiwi, Chocolate, Fig & Pecan Squares (V, GF)

I first wanted to call these my “what’s in these squares” but I thought it doesn’t sum up it’s deliciousness enough. Yum, yum, YUMMY! What else is there to say about these kiwi squares? I had ripe kiwis at home and was about to bake my […]

Lemon & Chia Cookies (V)

Lemon & Chia Cookies (V)

It’s time for these: lemon & chia cookies that give you that lemony zesty-sweet cake satisfaction. I created these when standing in my kitchen and looking at a bowl filled with gorgeous, bright yellow bio organic lemons. What should I do with them?, I wondered. For some […]

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

The “I Love Butterbeans” Hummus

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

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. […]

Buckwheat & Coconut Pancakes with Greek Yogurt & Raspberry Chia Jam

Pancakes for breakfast never get old, do they? I love a good stack of yummy pancakes in the morning that aren’t drowning in sugary syrup or topped with fatty bacon (is that really a thing?!). Instead, I’m into coconut pancakes or these gorgeous buckwheat pancakes. And […]

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)

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 […]

3 Ingredient Raspberry Chia Jam

3 Ingredient Raspberry Chia Jam

Jam is yummy. But the storebought one is nearly always filled with up to 50% refined sugar! Now, that’s definitely not what I want to have in my breakfast bowl.  A healthier option? Homemade raspberry chia jam that only requires 3 ingredients (plus a few […]

Vegan Blueberry & Lemon Scones

Vegan Blueberry & Lemon Scones

Recently, I’ve fallen in love with scones. I made them in the proper way: with butter and milk and what can I say. They were perfect. Sometimes, it’s worth going all in for the perfect baked goodie but usually, I rely on plant based milk and […]

Fruity Lentil Soup with Sweet Potato, Apple & Coconut (V, GF)

Fruity Lentil Soup with Sweet Potato, Apple & Coconut (V, GF)

Vulnerability, Kindness & Human Connection

Vulnerability, Kindness & Human Connection

It’s time for change. Or more accurately: time means change. So many things have shifted in these past months, as they always do. As they must do. There is no constant and no safety line, I’ve come to realize that, I’ve come to fear that […]
