Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Hmmm…it’s the beginning of strawberry season, and I could eat them by the bucket. Though what I really always crave for, is chocolate covered strawberries! I usually get them at food festivals or carnevals, but that isn’t an option at the time of Covid-19, so I did a trial run to come up with this…

Wild Garlic Butter

Early spring “wild garlic season” is nearly at its end and although it has been one of the sunniest spring times I have experienced in Switzerland in the last 10 years, it’s also been a very weird one, being confined to your house most days exept for the occasional walk. And at one of those…

Polenta Raclette Slices: A Twist on a Swiss Classic

I love leftovers, and this is one of my favorite dishes to make when I have leftover polenta: Raclette Polenta Slices! They are incredibly easy to make and you can top them with whatever you like – today I topped them with a bit of sautéed leek and ham, but you can also top them…

Chocolate Tartelettes with Pistacchio

Today, I made these little heart shape chocolate tartelettes with pistaccios. I used heart shaped silicon moulds, but you can also use a lined muffin tin as an alternative, this will, of course, leave you with round mini-tartelettes instead of hearts, probably somewhat like my dark chocolate tartelette recipe with a white crust, which you…

Easy Twister Bread Recipe

Crispy, warm bread – that’s how we all like it best. And is there a better time to bake bread yourself than now, when on the one hand it’s not so easy to get fresh bread in the morning at the bakery and on the other hand an additional activity at home might come in…

Wild Garlic Pesto

It’s probably the weirdest start into spring one could think of – but if you still can and live near a forest I’d suggest taking a walk alone and picking some wild garlic, it surely lifted my mood! Once back home, take a deep breath – and make some pesto. And here’s the recipe for…

Carrot Fritters or Rüebli-Tätschli: A Seasonal Vegetable Delight

Yes, it’s still kinda winter. And sometimes that means that we don’t have the largest variety of vegetables at our disposal. Mostly, there are carrots. Carrots. And more carrots. But don’t despair, if you don’t want to do any more roasted carrots or carrot soups, this is an easy way to change it up a…

Caramel Sauce

Lately, I have been practicing my caramel sauce and this Swissmilk recipe variation I had the best experience with. It also is immensely variable; depending on how long you let it simmer at the end you can use it as a sauce topping on ice-cream or dessert or as a bread spread topped with banana’s…
