A comforting italian inspired stew.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that a few simple ingredients result in such an incredible flavour. But the smell of beef slowly bubbling away in tomatoes, garlic and rosemary already gives a hint of the awesomeness that is cooking up. Patience is the most important ingredient here, but totally worth it, so don’t rush anything. You will be rewarded big times!

A comforting way to start strong.
I prefer having a hot breakfast over anything else. Yes, even during summer. Somehow it is comforting, a gentle start for a new day. Like a nice warm up for a training session, breakfast should prepare you for the upcoming day and provide energy until lunch. This recipe will do exactly that: it sets you up for an awesome day. Enjoy!

Comforting and diet friendly.
I’m not sure why stuffing minced meat into a paprika completely transforms both ingredients, but it does. A delicious smell wafting through your home will be a welcome byproduct of this comfort food classic. And it is even super diet friendly! Note on the side: Alexa -our official recipe guinea-pig- tested the stuffed paprika and did like them. She was quite sad that the recipe would not appear on the blog until now. So what are you waiting for, give it a try!

A stew shows the soul of a cook. Even when two people have the same recipe, the result won’t be the same as everybody makes slight changes. Still delicious but different. I find it even difficult to replicate the exact taste. And that is the beauty of a stew. This time we will use sweet potatoes, as I didn’t eat them for a long time. I combine them with beef and mediterrean flavours just because it feels right and I have a glass of olives that needs to get used up. The result is a hearthy stew, rich, dense, mellow and slightly sweet. Enjoy! Continue reading “Beef and Sweet Potato Stew”
Easy, comforting and delicious soulfood.
As the weather transitions from mild autumn to cold and rainy winter, I feel the need for something heart warming to eat. A bowl to hug. Where it is difficult to wait for it and you inevitably burn your tongue on the first spoonful. Thankfully this recipe is so simple and flexible, you can easily remember it, change it to your liking and make it your own.

Easy peasy meal prep for even the most stressed cooks.
As temperatures get a little lower (which I am extremely happy about), and autumn peeking around the corner, I am in the mood for something different for breakfast. Something warming, comforting and hearty, keeping me satieted many hours. I like my easy cheesecake, but now I’m not cutting anymore and can afford to eat something different. However, even if you are cutting at the moment, this recipe could be for you: you just have to be smart about the cut of meat to use. Continue reading “Breakfast Pulled Beef”
Szechuan Inspired Umami Bomb
I love Szechuan cuisine! There is a nice Szechuan restaurant in Vienna (Meister Xiao – go for it if you are in Vienna!) a couple of minutes away from us and they are serving gorgeous dishes. One of my favourites is mapo tofu: ground beef or pork, silky tofu, black beans and abundant spicy oil made from chili, szechuan pepper and broad bean paste. It’s served with fluffy, delicious, steamed rice. Guess what? It did not fit in my macros 😉 but we had similar ingredients at home and developed the following cut-friendly recipe adding also some more veggies. Give it a try, if you love spicy flavours as we do!
