Crumbly, creamy, cinnamony.
I love easy bakes full of flavor but quick to prepare, without a ton of steps to follow. However, there are occasions where something more soffisiticated is just the right thing to do. While watching a baking show, I came across this gorgeous combination of ingredients and textures, which tingled my baking nerve. The single components aren’t difficult to prepare and with the proper timing it won’t take long until you have a scrumptious festive cake to serve to your guests.

Vegetarian, rich in protein and delicious.
What an incredible combination of ingredients. Originally, watermelon and feta (or similar salty, firm cheese) are popular in the Mediterranean area but I wanted to do something slightly different. Also, to be honest, I just felt to change things up and I had an open bottle of chili sauce, fresh coriander and juicy ginger at home. This is how this Asian variation was born and I am really happy with it. Give it a try!

Yet another experiment that worked out way better than I thought! Oh, and the macros are insane. Thank me later.

Many people are afraid a curry is too hot for them and therefore dislike Indian cuisine. However, this massaman curry is comforting mild, but still excitingly fragrant and not at all boring. Indian spices collide with Thai ingredients, giving birth to a very special dish. Comforting, yet interesting. The kind of food that makes you a little sad once you ate the last portion. And the best of all, it’s really easy to make and can be prepared in large batches. Enjoy!

Rustic, foolproof and full of “the good stuff”.
Flapjacks are kinda weird: somewhere between cookie and müsli-bar. Delicious, easy to make and surprisingly satiating. Don’t be fooled by all the “healthy” ingredients like oats, fruits, nuts and honey, they still are what they are, a sweet treat totally worth the calories, but still having quite some calories. Sorry, I just hate it when sweets are labeled “healthy” and then marketed any calorie free. Anyways, enjoy these flapjack cookies, they are simply amazing!

Using a little kitchen magic, we take the edges off the bitterness and transform it into a crowd-pleasing side dish that goes with pretty much any meat or even fish. An Italian classic with a little Asian twist. Give it a try!
