The grill season has started and my husband and I are total barbecue fans. And while he loves to stand at the huge grill to take care of the main course I always ask myself: what side dish am I going to prepare? Ever since I tasted an unusual combination of sweet potatoes and figs at a friends place I am addicted to it. And so are our barbecue guests by the way. In addition the best side dish is fast to prepare and looks really nice as well.
Salad dressings can change boring greens into a delicacy! You need to have the courage to mix unusual ingredients and tools that surely most of us have at home. This time I will tell you some tricks how to create salad dressings that are truly delicious but on the same time rickety-split to create and low in calories.
Burger and beer can be extremely different. Sometimes the beer is warm and dull and the burger just greasy sometimes these basic foods turn into haute cuisine variations. If so then this rudimentary nutrition turns into a culinary delicacy . That’s what the Braufactum Berlin declares to offer. So we went and tried it out. And were pleasantly surprised!
Fresh smoothies are healthy, delicious and full of vitamins as is known. My whole family loves these fresh vitamin kicks “to go”. But as I am a working mum I barely have time to shop for the fresh ingredients, chop and mix them. My schedule with work, children and appointments is mostly simply too busy. But now I found a great solution to integrate these fresh snacks after all.
Granola bars are easily home made and are super healthy! I would have never thought how simple it is to create granola bars on your own. My whole family loves that small snack. And my self made ones are of course so much more healthier than the ones in the supermarkets that are full of added sugar. The great thing is that all I need are a few ingredients! And on top of that the bars are absolutely delicious.
Everyone needs a hangover cure once in a while for the day after New Year’s Eve. But what is really helpful and why?Don’t expect a recipe that helps reduce the alcohol in your blood, though, as this is a fairy tale. Our body is only able to reduce 0,1 per mill per hour. More or less depending on one’s physique. But I can tell you how you can feel better pretty fast without too much of a hustle!
Last minute present sounds like stress, but mine is the opposite! It is easy to make, makes everyone smile and is wonderfully old fashioned: homemade jam! It might sound dowdy and boring but trust me, my traditional Christmas jam is a burner each year. And it is cheap and super fast to make. Plus it doesn’t land on your hips.
Apple crumble with marzipan is a dessert that everyone loves. No wonder! The combination of flavoursome apples and crunchy crumbels with marzipan is simply delicious. And super easy to prepare. All we need for it are 5 ingredients. And vanilla ice-cream of course! A hit at Christmas Eve!
Vanilla crescents belong to every Christmas season in Germany. Therefore every year I make dozens of baking trays with these delicious traditional Christmas cookies. The reason is grandma Gerda’s recipe. It is proven they are so delicious that noone can ever get enough of them! Till today I kept the secret of her recipe but now I will reveal it to you.
Detox Delight sounds as if detoxing is mere fun. You know what? It is! I like to detox a couple of times per year. But especially this one week during the cold season is especially important for me. As a prevention for Christmas. S that my immune system can handle all the upcoming sweets and all! My detox weeks always contain loads of healthy stuff, no alcohol and no sweets. And that’s really tasty! Because my fresh juices no only contain lots of minerals and vitamins. They are also yummy!
